PLOUGHMAN'S DROPS. To Dr. SMITH, Upton Magna. SLR, Shrewsbury, Feb. 10, 1821. SOME time since, during the winter season, 1 had the ni sforltine to have a fail, bv which I received a wound in my right leg; the wound did uot appear at first to he of much con- sequence, hut finding that its appearance became alarming. 1 placed myself under Ihe care of a medical gentleman, of Shrewsbury. His efforts proving ineffectual, I applied lo another of the Shrewsbury faculty, and subsequently to four others, nil of whom were reputed for their powe; s ici the healing art; but rather than mv wound being cured, it relapsed into a most frightful ulceration, rendered still more afflictive aud dis- tressing by Ihe apparent necessity of mv leg being taken off. Having thus obtained ali Ihe advwe that money could purchase, and also taken a most incredible quantity " f physic, from which 1 did not derive the smallest portion of benefit, I was about lo commit myself into the hands of the Surgeon, when fortunately, I was induced to en- quire after Dr. Smit/ is Ploughman"** Drops, aud before I had taken the half of one small bottle the wound began to assume the most healtbv appearance 1 continued to take the Drops, | o the amount of live small bottles, and my leg gradually returned lo its wonted state of sound- ness, and has continued so to the present time* lt would be an ungrateful feeling on my part wen: I to withhold my heartfelt testimony to the valu- able properties which these Drops contain, nud I am therefore callcd upon to avow that I consider thin one of the finest cures that ever came within my knowledge, and shall be glad at any time to give my personal attestation to Ihe same.

At Surinam lately, by languor opprest, A Traveller sought the oblivion of rest; While it chanc'd in the room that conspicuously placed. Stood his Boots, by the Blacking transcendantly grae'd. * Twas then that a native attendant withdrew Aghast,— for a form in the Jet met his view,— " The Vampyre!" in accents of horror he cried,— " The Vampyre !" the terrified Inmates replied ; 44 The Spectre of Guinea, of dreadful pursuits, " Now flits, to and fro, in the Traveller's Boots V Behold from the Jet then, this gaunt monster go, And fixing its fangs on the stranger's great toe, Suck his blood nnd disgorge, yet inflicting no pain, Suck his blood and disgorge still again and again; Its wings o'er its victim while fanning they keep, Securing a slumber protracted and deep !— 44 Now rouse him from stupor!" a friendly voice cries, 44 The Vampyre his blood else will drain till be dies!" A shout then was rais'd, and dcserling its prey ft wing'd thence, the monster, its ominous way ! Now starting from sleep as the Traveller stood, Pale, ghastly, exhausted, and « ; rimson'd with blood ; He sought explanation, though speech was denied— 44 The Vampyre! the Vainpyre !" each spectator cried. Unknown, unmolested, the Vampyre had kept Its seat,— and the Traveller eternally slept, Unless like a mirror the bright Boot had serv'd, And tinieously thus his existence preserv'd ! Since then Surinam is most forward in backing The Vampyre detector in WARREN'S Jet Blacking! * This monstrous Indian Bat, or Vampyre, or Spectre of Guinea, also called the Flying Dog of New Spain, and by the Spaniards Perrovohidor, makes its attack exactly in the manner here described.

Dispatches were received on Monday frcm fhe British Consul, Mr. Carl wright, at Constantinople, dated the llth March, by the Levant Company. He state?', " that in consequence of the Nore mentioned in his last as having been transmitted by the Porte to Lord Strangford anil the Count de Lutzow, those two Ambassadors had thought proper to address a joint Note to the Turkish Government, couched in very strong terms, and urging an immediate compliance wilh the Russian Ultimata tti, especially that part ol it which re- quires tbe immediate cession of the two Princi- palities occupied by Ihe Ottoman troops, as Ihe only means of averting hostilities. This Note had been delivered to tbe Porte, and m>. answer had yet been returned, but either ( tn evasive or atr unfavourable reply was expected." Every thing remained tranquil at Constantinople. It is considered surprising Ihat hostilities have not commenced between Ihe Turks and Russians, but there are difficulties of a local nature opposed to it. The earth must have time to grow firm, and the grass to shoot.-— In the war of 1760, PI • ince Galitzin did not pass the Dniester to attack the lines of Choczim till tbe 2fith of April. The Campaign of 1770, in which Romanzow, after some checks, gained memorable victories, did not commence till the month of May ; that of 1771, which opened with tbe siege of Giurgiova, began in the same month ; tbe year 1772 passed in ne- gocialious, and the Russians did not cross Ihe Danube to undertake the siege of SiHstria, ia which they failed, as also in tbat of Varna, which they attacked with a view to have a port on the coast of Bulgaria, until tbe end of June, 1773.— Io 1774, Romanzow did not pass the Danube until the 16th and 17th of June. It was in this campaign that the Turkish army, encamped at Chiiunla, revolted, refused to fight, and fled to. wards Constantinople, an event which occasioned the peace signed on tbe 26th of July, 1774. ITaytian Papers to the 10th of February contain an account of tbe entry of the Republican troops, without opposition, into the city of Santiago, in the Spanish part of the island, aud of the adoption of the Republican Constitution by tbe inhabi- tants. Prior Journals are filled wilh the speeches of the various Generals to She troops on the com mencementof the 19th year of Haytian independ- ence. It is to be remembered that the independ- ence of Hayti was occasioned entirely by the treacherous attempt of Bonaparte to " bring the Haytians again under the yoke of slavery. Until that expedition, the inhabitants of tbe Western ( 01' French part of ihc island, avowed their submission to the French Government. But Ihe stratagems, and cruelties of Leclerc, and the sufferings of Toussaint inspired the negro population with a hatred of the French name, and a determination never more to submit to the dominion of France. Among other benefits which arc stated 111 these speeches to have accrued from the independence of the country, are reckoned the public schools established by the President, for tbe instruction of youth. Besides Santiago, it appears that Catuv, La Vega, Porto Plata, and Monte Christ i bud hoisted the Republican flag. IRELAND. Extract of a letter from Armagh, dated April Gth :—" I have the pleasure to inform you tbat our linen and yarn markets are rapidly 011 the in- crease. The wholesale trade of the latter is now remarkably brisk and extensive." FI ' om the Dublin Papers of the 13th inst. we are happy to perceive that the disturbances in the South of Ireland are beginning sensibly to decline. Not only are the outrages less frequent and less atro- cious, but the instances of the return of stolen arms are more numerous among the peasantry. The return of the season for agricultural labour, when not only employment is " to be found, but when the most ignorant peasant knows the indis pensible necessity of exertion, together with Ihe removal of a great exciting cause ill tbe seizure of several of the wretches who have acted as their leaders, appears to have had the effect of restoring to the peaceful paths of industry many of the infatuated beings who have lately been disgracing their country, and even their nature, by then- worse than brutal conduct. The prisoners in Limerick Gaol have given a list of the names of their associates who have arms, and the latter, lo save themselves, are givin » them up, 0 At ten o'clock on the night of Fridayf Ihe 5lli instant, W. Nash, Esq. chief officer of the police stationed at Roscrea, having heard some shots near that town, proreeiled immediately with ii parly 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 ihe breeches pocket of one tbe son of a very reputable man, was found a manuscript book, emblazoned with various tie- vices, and containing the oath, pass. word, and a complete system of insurrectionary organization. It would appear from this document Ihat a general union and consolidation of the several systems which have for years bark distracted various parts of Ireland, hat e been effected. The prisoner Was forwarded on Saturday to the magistrates at Thurles, who awaits Ihe directions of ; relative to bim. government Ct. ON it EI, Assizr. s.— Seditious i;. rprec*! oi\ s. — O. i Friday, James Gallaghan was indicted for having uttered certain seditious expressions in the town of Cahir, on the 20th of January last. A soldier of the Rills brigade, named Neale, swore that on ( hat day lie was in Cahir about three hours, on bis march to Fertnov; that being in a public- bottse where he was billeted, the prisoner whom he identified, was previously drinking u ith five or six others, aud he heard him say, " that if ever he went to England, he would go" to London and assist in pulling down the King and crown and burning them in hell." lt was to the tune of a song that tile rifleman never heard before. The prisoner went 0: 1, and said or sung in the same way ( for it was ail the one tune), " ( bat he would fight up to his knees in Protestant blood— that he would m. tke one to burn all Orangemen and Protestants— lual he wished tl. e Croppies of Ire. land would gain the d. iv " Th. s was close to the witness, but in at: adjoining room. Galla<* han was made prisoner by one Austin, a comrade of the witness's, and taken befjre Lord Waterpark who, after examination, committed him. ' The prisoner, before they had accoutred them- selves to take him before the magistrates, had made his escape backwards from Ihe house, and concealed himself under some straw in a slable • and 011 pursuing hini there, Austin fixed his bayonet, and pushing it gently itito the straw, and. at the same time declaring he would kill the prisoner unless he came out, Gullaghan came from under the slra. v and begged bis life.— Guilty.

The Morning Chronicle was seized in all the • public places of Paris on Tuesday, on account of iis containing a revolutionary song, in French, addressed to the soldiers who form the cordon of health a. t the fool of the Pyrennees. The accounts of outrages, received from Ireland this morning, are not numerous. George Walker, and Edmund Fitzgerald ( the schoolmaster by whom many of the notices signed Captain Rock were written) have been executed. Great preparations are making on the Continent to receive His Majesty, during tiie tour which he is expected to take in the summer.

The ROUSE of LORDS tint on THURSDAY, pursuant to adjournment, hut no business of public interest Came before it. Tbe HOUSE of COMMONS met on WEDNESDAY. Several petitions were presented from Unitarian Dissenters, piaving for an alteration in the Marriage Act. LAW AGAINST MANSLAUGHTER. Mr. RENNET obtained leave to bring iu a bill to amend the laws respecting theeritneof Manslaughter. At present twelve months' imprisonment was all the penalty that Judges could inflict for this offence. He thought that iu aggravated cases they should be em- powered to award the punishment of fourteen years' transportation, and the object of the new bill was to give that power. Mr.. WYNN expressed HIS concur- rence in Ihe suggestion. AGRICULTURAL RFPORT, The Marquis of LONDONDERRY postponed bis mo- tion .' relative to the Agricultural Report until Friday the20th instant. His lordship further intimated, that it would certainly be brought forward on that day. CATHOLIC PEERS. Mr. PEEL presented a Petition from the Members of the Synod of Glasgow, against the admission of Roman Catholic Noblemen to seats iu the House of Peers, and stated bis determination to Oppose and take the sense of the House on Mr. Canning's first motion respecting their admission — Sir THOMAS LETHBRIDGE expressed his surprise that the country bad not more generally petitioned against the mea- sure.— [ The present number of Catholic Peers is 8 English, 9 Irish, and 2 Scotch.] UNITARIAN DISSENTERS. Mr. W. SMITH obtained leave to bring* in a bill allowing Unitarians to be married by their own ministers— The Marquis of LONDONDERRY did not object to its introduction, though he wished not to be understood as pledged to support the measure. DISMISSAL OF OFFICERS OF THE ARMY. Colonel DAVIKS gave notice that be should on Tn. esday move for leave ti) bring in a bill to define, and, if necessary, limit the discretion of the Crown, - with reference to the dismissal of officers without Courts Martial. COMMITTEE ON PUBLIC ACCOUNTS. On THURSDAY, the CHANCELLOR of the EXCHE- QUER rose, pursuant to notice, and moved for the appointment of a Committee to investigate the man- Tier in which the'public accounts are at present kept, am! to suggest such improvements in the system as might appear necessary. The objects intended were to simplify the accounts, so that they might show, at one view, as in a balance sheet, the income and expenditure of each year, and to present the same at the earliest possible period.— A conversation arose, in which Mr. MABBRLEY, Sir II PARNELL, and others joined, as to the extent to which the labours of the Committee should be directed, after which the motion ' was agreed to. The HOUSE of COMMONS met yesterday, but there being only thirty- seven members present at four o'clock, the House forthwith adjourned. This day tbe House met again at twelve, and having disposed of a few orders of the day, separated until Monday.

( Author of the Memoirs of Antient Babylon), formerly of Bristol, and late resident of the East India Company at Bagdad ; to which station he was raised before the age of seventeen, in conse- quence of his great literary attainments ond distin- guished merit'. He was at Shiraz on his way to Bombay, when lie was carried off by that fatal disease the Cholera Morbus, the ravages of which in that city swept off', in the short space of five days, sixteen thousand persons. His untimely death will be the subject of most painful regret to many of his friends w ho remember his truly amiable character, together with his intense application and his ardent genius, by means of which lie was enabled to make an almost unexampled proficiency in the Hebrew, Greek* Persic, Arabic, and Turkish, as well as in several of the European languages. Independently of his extraordinary acquirements, thus prematurely lost to tlie world, his death will excite additional regret in the mind of the Christian, from his having engaged in the most decided manner to promote the circu ation of the Scriptures through Persia, and other parts of the East : an ample acknowledgment of his valuable services is contained in the records of the British and Foreign Bible Society. Such an affecting instance of extended mortality loudly calls for attention to the Divine admonitiou— u Therefore be ye also ready, for in snch au hour as ye think not the Son of Man cometh." Th Birmingham Gazette of Monday last says In consequence of the threatening aspect assumed by the colliers in the neighbourhood of Wolverhampton and Bilston ( luring the early part of last week, Captain Gape's troop cf Scots Greys was dispatched from this town on Wednes- day, and reached Wolverhampton about ten o'clock that night. We are happy, however, to state, that all was quiet there, and that no disturbance has taken place in that town, either before or since their arrival.— We learn, that on Monday and Tuesday several pits in the neighbourhood of Dudley, Wednesbnry, and Bilston were stopped by large bodies of colliers j that in one or two instances the riot act was read among them ; and that they were afterwards dispersed by the Yeomanry. We do not hear, however, that any personal injury of consequence was sustained by either party.-— In some instances those colliers who appeared unwilling to leave their employment were beaten and ill- treated by the refractory workmen. We believe that order is at length in great measure restored." We regret to add, as will be perceived by the following article, extracted from the Nottingham Journal of Saturday, that the Frame- work- knitters of that county are proceeding to display a smrilof insubordination and mischief:— 4k We have hitherto abstained from noticing the turn- out amongst the frame. work- knitters- in the c tton hose branch, in ihe hope that the matter would be amicably arranged between the masters and their workmen. Io this, however, our expectations have heen disappointed, and we regret to find, that the conduct of some of the workmen, in several of tire manufacturing villages in this county, has assumed a character which threatens the peace of society, and it has in consequence become necessary to enforce the provisions of the Watch and Ward Act." COUNTY OF MONMOUTH.— At the Quarter Sessions, held at Usk on Monday week, a ground plan of some proposed additions to the Gaol at Monmouth was submitted to the Bench, in consequence of a resentation of the Grand Jury. The adoption of this measure, however, was strongly and successfully resisted by M r. Moggridge and other Magistrates. A requisition to the High Sheriff, to convene a Meeting of tlie Owners and Occupiers of Land as speedily as possible, for the purpose of taking into consideration the present distressed and disturbed state of the county, was signed on the bench by n arge number of Magistrates, and is now in the course of signature. In the western part of tbe County of Monmouth, we regret to slate, the refractory workmen have been ncreased in number by some thousands- from the Rock, Tredegar, Sirhowey, and Pont- y pool works. The Scotch Greys have remained at Abergavenny ; aud the knowledge that the County Cavalry are on the alert, and that application has been made for some infantry, deters from actual violence ; but this state of things, it is feared,- cannot last. In the day- time, the men spread themselves through the county, and solicit charity, with which thev support their families ; in the evenings they blacken their faces, assemble on the hills, and use the most horrible threats t > deter those, who think half a loaf better than no bread, from working under the regular prices.

Shrewsbury, April 16,1822. A' COURT OF KING'S BENCH, This Day.— Waithman v. Shackell, Arrowsmith, and Weaver.— This was an action brought by Mr. Alderman Waith- man against the defendants, who are the proprietors of the John Bull Sunday newspaper, to recover a compensation 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 pUadings, and Mr. Scarlett stated the case to the Jury. The libel in question appeared in the paper of September last year, ami imputed to the plaintiff' tbe having pur- chased souie shawls, in the year 180&, that had heen fraudulently obtained from a Mr. Cooper, in Bond- street, at a price, far below their value; and that iu his return of the amount of profits under the Income Tax Act, he had made a false return, and afterwards swore to snch falsehood. Witnesses vyere called to prove the proprietorship of the defendants 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 ap- peared that in July, 1821, the weekly sale of the • paper was from 8,000 lo 10,000. This being the case for the plaintiff', Mr. Serjeant Vaughan addressed the Jury on be- half of the defendants; after, which the Chief Justice briefly addressed the Jury upon the most prominent parts of the case, and they retired to consider their verdict. When they returned they pronounced the defendants guilty, and awarded £ 500 damages to ihe plaintiff'. POSTSCRIPT, London, Monday Night, Jpril 22. We have received New York Papers to the,, 261h ultimo. They contain the Report of the Committee of Foreign Affairs, to the House of Representatives, on the Message ofthe President, recommending the recognition of the Independence of the Spanish Colo- nies. As may be supposed, the Committee entirely concur with the President, and declare, unanimously, that it is " just and expedient to acknowledge the Independence of the several nations of Spanish America, without any reference to the diversity in the forms of their Governments." They then re- commend that a sum not exceeding 100,000 dollars should be placed at the disposal of the President, for the purpose of carrying this measure into effect. 3 per Cent.

LEMON presented a petition, signed by upwards of 500 owners and occupiers of land in Cornwall, complaining of distress and praying for relief and reform. Mr. GRENFELL said, there never was a petition, which, from the respectability of its signatures, was inore entitled to consideration than this was. In many of the opinions, however, expressed by the petition, he. did not agree. As to the agricultural distress, in many instances he had no doubt it was extremely severe, but not so general as had been represented, and he trusted the time was not. far distant when the country would surmount its dis- tresses, and again become prosperous and happy. Mr. CURWEN could not refrain from entering his protest against the doctrine of his hon. friend, that the distress of the country was not so great as had been represented. CATHOLIC EMANCIPATION. Mr. HART DAVIS presented a petition from Bristol, signed by nearly 8000 persons, praying that no alteration might be made in the existing laws re- specting Raman Catholics. The hon. member trusted all the great and populous towns and cities in the kingdom would follow the. example of Bristol. CASH PAYMENTS* Mr. WESTERN gave notice that he would, on the 2d May, submit a motion to the House for an enquiry into the effect produced on the country by the Act of 1819, for the resumption of Cash Payments by the liauk.

Cooper, Bart. SHREWSBURY: Printed by J. WATTON, and to be had of all the Booksellers HOLYHEAD ROAD. The following is an extract from Mr. TEL- FORD'S last Report on the state of the Road from Shrewsbury by Coventry to London, just printed by- order of the House of Commons :— 11M March.— From Shrewsbury to Emsfrey the road has been brought into a tolerably good form, the sides cleaned, atid the surface partly improved. Enistrey bill has been improved in the cutting and embanking; but the metal has not been properly' selected and applied. From Emstrey to A. teham the road has been widened, and brought into a tolerably good shape ; but the gravel has been put on without screening or proper selection. The hest remedy would be, to lav a coat of properly broken Overley hill stones for 16 feet in breadth in the middle of the road, and for 6 inches in thickness. Near Atcham Inn, and opposite Lord Berwick's west gate, tbe road should be raised. From Atcham to Tern bridge, the road has been uch improved as to shape and surface; but some cross drains are still wanting, and also keeping the sides quite dry. From Atcham to the Horse- shoe public house, some parts have been widened, and the general shape improved. At the llorse- shoe, there, is no appear aii($ of im- proving the direction ; it remains, to. the disgrace of that part of the road, very much in the shape of thfi before mentioned sign. From the said Horse- shoe to the termination of the Trust, the road has been widened in sundry places, by culling- off awkward bends. The general form ofthe road under this Trust lias been improved, and part of the surface lifted and the stones broken ; and when this operation has been extended over the wholeTrust, an effectual improve- ment will have beeu accomplished. WELLINGTON TRUST. From the western extremity of the Trust to the Hay- gate, the road has had its sides cleaned and the general form improved ; great part of the surface lifted, and the stones broken, so as to render it smooth. At the Hay- gate, the road has been widened and improved. From the Hav- gate to the Cock Inn, the road has been partially improved. Its completion may be expected in the course of the present season; and as excellent metal can be procured from Overley hill and Ercall quarry, there is a prospect of tho road being rendered substantially good. From the Cock Inn to near Ketiey bank, the road has been considerably improved in form and surface,. Adjacent to Ketiey. in consequence of the pro- jected improvement, little has been done? but that, being now contracted for, no time will be lost in commencing practical operations. From Ketiey Works to the termination of this Trust at the Shropshire canal, the improvement lately executed is in a tolerably fair state, but will require unremitting attention to preserve it so. SHIFFNAL TRUST. March 12.— On account of ihe projected improve- ment, little has been done between the Shropshire canal and the toll- bar east of Prior's Lee. From thence to Shifl'ual ihe road is in a tolerably good state, but there is no appearance of great exer- tion as to improvement. Through the town ' of Shiff'nal the pavement is singularly defective, and requires immediate improvement, unless an entirely new line is adopted on the south side of the town, which is both practicable and advisable. WOLVERHAMPTON TRUST. From Shiff'nal to Cosford brook, much has already been done iu clearing out the sides, bringing the road into a proper shape, and cutting down the hedges; very considerable quantities of good mate- rials are now lying in heaps along the edge of the road, and some broken and put on the road. There are also some cinder heaps, which may do for the sides. lu sundry places, the forniing the sides Iras pro- duced a considerable quantity of earth aud mud; this should he removed. In ascending the Windmill hill, a- cross drain is still wanting. In approaching Cosford brook, some trees on the right render the road damp; they should be lopped and thinned, and some hedges are not yet cut.. From Cosford brook to Whiston Cross, the road has had the right- hand side drain mostly cleaned, its form and surface much improved, and great quantities of good materials provided ; a considera- ble portion of which have been very well broken. Tbe hedges, along this part of Ihe road, have been mostly cut very properly. FromVVhiston Cross to Summer- House hill, similar observations may be applied ; the road being gene- rally in good condition. The Earl of Darlington has failed in the ejectment causes brought by his Lordship for the. recoyery of landed property in Somersetshire. On tbe 10th inst. an Inquest was held in our County Gaol, ou tbe body of Thoinas Anderson, who had died in the Infirmary of the Prison. He had been committed to prison on a charge of stealing poultry, but was in so bad, a state/ of mental and bodily health as to be unfit to take his trial at our late Assizes, when he was remanded for trial at the next Assizes. It appeared in evidence that the unfortunate man was decidedly - insane, and that his propensity to destroy various articles had rendered it necessary to secure him with hand- cuffs and muffs; and his violent exertions were succeeded by paralysis ; and two medical gentle- men deposed tbat his death was occasioned by the complication of mental derangement, violent exer- tion, and paralysis.— Verdict, Died by the visit- ation of God^ being in a stale of mental derange? incnt.

E. Parry, of Carmarthen, and stealing a quantity of goods ; and John Jones, for stealing eight sheep from the park at Middleton- Hall, the property of SirWilliatn Paxton, were found guilty, and received, sentence of death. The two former were strongly recommended to mercy by the prosecutor ; and the Jtnjjjesaid it should be attended to.— David Daniel, / or stealing tallow from his master, at Car- marthen; Thomas Qain and Daniel i> « tu'e5, ior re- ceiving the same, knowing'it to be stolen ; nndj& avid Rees, for stealing wearing apparel at Glaubrydan, were ordered to be imprisoned six months, and kept to hard labour.— Elizabeth Richards, for stealing linen, the property of Lord Dynevor, one month's imprisonment.— On the civil side, eight causes were tried, three of which hy special juries, but none pos- sessing public interest except that of Evans v Griffiths, for defamation, iu iinphting to the plaintiff the commission ofa horrible offence. Verdict for the plaintiff, damages £ 50. On* Monday, the Sth instant, T. Price and J. Evans were executed in front of the gaol at Car- digan, for the murder of T. Evans The circum stances attending this murder are truly horrible, they having first beaten with bludgeons and then hamstringed the unfortunate man, who was at the 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 assistance of Price, threw him over a bridge. They made full confession, in which they state, their reasons for so doing sirose from nn old quarrel, and an apprehension lest he should expose some of their tricks. Price declared he had no intention to murder him in the. first in- stance, attributed it to the heat of passion at the moment: and that it never would have happened: had it not been for his father- in- law, Evan Evans, who was the promoter of the whole. The gallows being very narrow, it was deemed impracticable to execute them both at. the same time. Price was in consequence brought out first; lie appeared per- fectly resigned to his fate, ascended the ladder with seeming alacrity, and was anxious to put a period to his suffering, scarcely allowing the executioner time to fasten the rope before he stepped from the ladder, thus launching himself into eternity ; after hanging the usual time he was cut down, and carried back into the gaol. After some minutes had elapsed, Evans was brought forward ; he was less firm than Price, and appeared in an agony of despair, and with BY MESSRS.

HOLYHEAD ROAD. The Annual Report of the Commissioners for the Line of Road from Shrewsbury to Bangor Ferry has been printed by order uf the House of Commons. The Receipts on the Road from Feb. 1. 1821, to Feb. 1, 1822, amounted to £ 6303. 14s. 4| d.; the Expenditure to £' 5811. Is. 9d.; leaving a balance in the Treasurer's hands of £ 492. 12s. 71<\. This ba- lance being- applied towards paying the half- year's interest and salaries due Feb. 1st, amounting' to £ 627, w ill leave a deficiency this year of about £ 134. A letter front Mr. WYATT to the Commissioners states, that the amount of the new additional Tolls now levied on the Road from Shrewsbury to Bangor Ferry having been much exaggerated, he has that* a*' far" redaction' tban that bought it not au improper accompaniment to his annual account, to insert a Comparative Statement of the Old Tolls with those uow charged ; from which it appears that the whole advance between Shrewsbury and Bangor Ferry, does not amount to more than 12s. on posting with a pair of horses, and on Sundays only ( Is 2d.; and 8s. 7^ d. for a stage- coach. The necessity of levying such increased tolls is sufficiently apparent, from the statement of the income and expenditure of the Road. To shew also, that the travelling is very little affected by the increased tolls, Mr. Wyatt gives a Comparative Statement of the travelling ( through one of the gates, kept in hand by the Commissioners), in the corres- ponding half- years of 1819, 1820, and 1821; and alsr,. ir.- ijse- y- eajs e ad M » g . August I, 1820, and August 1, 1821 ; by which it appears that tbe travelling in gentlemen's carriages has progressively increased ; that in the post- chaises has diminished, with the exception of some improvement in the half year ending 1st August last; but this arises chiefly from the improved regulations in the stage- coaches, and the reduction of the fares, making it cheaper and more expeditious to travel by the coaches. There appears too a small falling off in the number of gigs, iu the half year ending Feb. lst, 1821; but this is more than amply made up by the great increase in the last half year. There has heen a considerable fluctuation in the number of saddle and cart horses, and a great falling off in the latter; but this may be accounted for in the depressed circumstances of the farmers. The Tolls paid to the Commissioners, by each of the Stage Coaches ( the Regeni and Prince of Wales,), from Feb. 1, 1821, to Feb. 1,1822, was £ 982. 16s.

William Griffiths, who was executed at Shrews- bury, on the 6th inst. for house- breaking at Mr. Rodenhurst's, of Cotton, was buried at Hanmer, on the 9th inst. according to his desire, near his two children, w ho had died whilst he was in prison ; a great concourse of mournful spectators attended.— Griffiths was 30 years of age, born at Ash, near Whitchurch, but had lived in the parish ofllanmer with his family several years, was by trade a wheel- wright, a good workman, and had a good character until within these few years, w hen he was sent to prison for stealing a game cock : this seems to have been the beginning of his misfortunes. lie then appears to have contracted an acquaintance wiih several bad characters, which led him to his untimely end. Griffiths has left a mother, a wife, and four children to lament his loss.— It is not true, as has been stated, that Griffiths had been transported. MERIONETH ASSIZES.— Hugh Huqhev, born near Bala, was conviced of horse- stealing on the clearest testimony, and sentenced to suffer death, but hopes of mercy were extended to him.— He had previously suffered two years' imprisonment. John Roberts, who had been for many years a bailiff or sheriff's officer, vvas found guilty of extort ing from Elinor Williams, a poor widow, the sum of £ 2. 4s. uuder colour of a couuty court summons, the sum really due being only £ 1. 8s. He vvas sentenced to 6 months' imprisonment iu the common gaol of tlje county of Merioneth, and lo pay a fine of £ 10 to the King,* aud to be further imprisoned until it be paid. Execution of John Connor, at Ruthin.— John Connor was a native of the countv of Wexford, in Ireland, a Roman Catholic, aged 32 years.— On Monday morning, the 15th inst. the Under Sheriff of the County of Denbigh ( T. Broster, Esq.) went from the Lion Inn to the Gaol, attended by the Aldermen of Ruthin, several Gentleman of the Town, the Sheriff's Javelin Men, the Corporation of Ruthin's Javelin Men, the Bailiffs and Constables,* about 11 o'clock. The prisoner was then with two Catho'ic Priests ( Mr. Wright, of Holywell, and Mr. Hates). The. Under Sheriff w aited for him until a quarter past twelve, when he came out, attended by the two Priests, and ascended the scaffold with a firm step, when Mr. Bates addressed the spectators ( very numerous) by desire ofthe prisoner, acknowledging the coinmissionof theeriine, expressing his contrition, and warning them by his example, lie was a very fine man, about 6 feet 2 inches high, and certainly the most powerful man seen in the neighbourhood for some time ; he was very penitent, aud confident in his hopes of salvation. lie was turned off about twenty minutes before one, and died in about two minutes and a half. The night before, he was quite reconciled to his fate, and told Mr. Broster he was then prepared to die, and had beeu so since the day before. His parents and friends are living, but they know nothing of his fate, nor did he w ish them. He* stated most positively, that there was hut one man with him when he committed the robbery, yet he would uot mention his name, but said he had no doubt the prosecutors were mistaken from the alarm they felt. The prosecutors supposed there were four, hut knew the prisoner and his companion, who is a man called Will Sair ( William Thomas), from the fiarish of Gresford, and who has absconded, though le remained in that neighbourhood, and was fre- quently seen for several weeks after tbe robbery, and is a notorious bad character : strange as, it may seem, no one apprehended him. His wife is now in gaol, under a sentence of imprisonment for uttering base coin. At the Great Sessions for Glamorganshire, Chas. Edwards, labourer, for stealing ten sheep at Llanga- felach, received sentence of death ; the Judge, how- ever, held out hopes of mercy to the unfortunate man. Three prisoners were sentenced to imprisonment; William Thomas, charged with manslaughter, was acquitted ; and John David, farmer, of Pautscaweu, charged with stabbing and maiming his wife, was proved to be iusane at tbe time be committed the acl, A Report from Mr. Paovis to the Commissioners details the proceedings in regard to the repair and maintenance of the road ; from which it appears that the principal improvements made during the last year have taken place at Bangor; the Valley of the River Ogwen; liettws y- Coed ; from Pentre Voelas to Ccruioge Mawr ; near Cerrig- y- druidion, at Hen- dre- y- ddwyfaen ; between Corweu Bridge and Cor- wen ; from Owen Glandwr's Hill to Rhysgog Hill ( 3, miles of new road); at Llangollen; and at Monk Eye Prill, near Shrewsbury. [ The conclusion of Mr. PRO vis's Report, as containing ( in addition to its local information) the opinion ofa scientific mati on the construction of carriage wheels, and their effect upon Turnpike Roads, may be generally interesting-. We there- fore insert it at length ] u Having uow stated what has been done during the last year, towards the progressive improvement and maintenance of the Road, I shall proceed to lay before you some observations upon those Restrictions on weights and wheels, which Imve come into opera- tion since mv last Report. 44 Your clerk having received sundry communica- tions respecting the effects of those restrictions, which he has since put into my hands, I shall briefly State the purport of each, and endeavour to replv to them satisfactorily. The originals wiil be laid before you by your clerk. 441. The first of these papers is a letter from Mr. Exuperius Pickering to Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Bart, dated 26th May, 1821. It states, that a new toll- gate and weighing machine having been fixed between Corweu and Llangollen, had k diverted all 4 ilie coal carriage from Buahoti parish to the col- 4 lieries in the neighbourhood of Wrexham ;' and requests that a gate and machine may be erected at the turn above ilftg, 4 which would place the whole j 4 on an equal footing, aud produce directly that | 4 general alteration in she construction of wheels, so 4 extremely desirable to the maintenance of good 4 roads,' ike. 44 2. The second is a letter from Mr. Exuperius Pickering to your clerk, and is dated June 9, 1821. This letter, after stating the restrictions that have been acted upon, and advocating their adoption, states, that notw ithstanding they were operating in a ruinous manner upon the collieries near Ruabon, 4 from their not having become general on the lloly- 4 head Road; the consequence of which is, that 4 nearly all the coal carriage which usually passed 4 through Llangollen, is now diverted to the Wrex- 4 ham side of the country, as by turning down the 4 Road to that town, through Bryneglwys, from the 4 west side of Corweu, near Rug, the persons are 4 enabled to avoid the restrictions in question.' Mr. Pickering then advises the erection ofa tollgate and machine at the place where the Wrexham Road quits the Holyhead Boad near Rug. 44 3. The next is a petition from the proprietors and lessees of coal mines in ihe parish of Ruabon, dated June 9, 1821, with 13 signatures. It requests the Commissioners to take their case into consideration; and states the loss thev are iiislaining by the restric- tions being put in force between Corwen and Llan- gollen, 1 previous to tbe § reetion of the intended new 4 tollgate and liar, west of Cor wen ( at the turn down 4 towards Wrexham, near Hug)' and which has nearly diverted the whole of the coal Carriage that way. The petitioners express their conviction 4 of 1 the utility, aud indeed of the absolute necessity of 4 the restrictions in question ( if good Roads are to 4 be maintained); but request that sucb gates and e check bars may be erected, as may render tSie 4 operation of the restrictions in question sufficiently general, that the collieries of Wrexham and Ruabon 4 may as heretofore be placed on an equal footing.' They then pray that a tollgate, & c. may be put up as above- mentioned near Rug. 44 4. The fourth is a letter from Mr. Exuperius Pickering to your clerk, dated 16th June, 1821, in which he acknowledges the receipt of a previous letter from your clerk ; and regrets that the place he had pointed out was rendered impracticable, by the clause in our Act of Parliament referred to iu your clerk's letter to him. Mr. Pickering then suggests, as the only alternative, 4 the immediate erection of a 4 tollgate and weighing machine on the luest side of 4 the Druid Inn, between it and the spot w here the 4 Bala Road turns off.' Mr. Pickering further thinks, that though the Commissioners may have no power to erect a tollgate to collect tolls between Corwen and the Druid Inn, yet that they have full power to fix a check bar and weighing machine at the Road near Rug, to enforce the new regulations; and thinks it incumbent on them to do so. 44 5. The fifth and last paper is a petition from the yeomen and farmers resident in the hundred of Penllyu and Eidernion in Merionethshire; without date. 4k The petitioners state themselves oppressed, 1st and 2dly, by not being allowed to carry more weight upon 6- inch wheels than 30 cwt.; 3- iuch wheels being allowed to carry the same weight, whilst broad wheels do less injury than narrow ones; 3dly, because the penalty for overweight is 5s. a horse for all breadths, without distinction ; 4thly, that it would be less oppressive if the. tolls upon 3- inch wheels were advanced in proportion to the overweight, than to pay the present fine ; 5thly, be- cause one horse drawing a cart is liable to the fine, the same as if drawn by two, three, or more horses ; 6thly, they consider that wheels under 3 inches should be subject to advance of toll only, because many small farmers arc unable to procure the wheels required. The petitioners then proceed to a picture of agricultural distress, and conclude by praying, that they may be allowed to carry more weight upon broad wheels. From the foregoing papers, it appears that Mr. Pickering and the coal proprietors near Ruabon are all decidedly of opinion, that the restrictions which have been adopted respecting weights, and the construction of wheels, are not only highly bene- ficial, but absolutely uecessary for the maintenance of a good Road. The only complaint from these gentlemen is, that the penalties are not sufficiently general, but operate in favour of the Wrexham col- lieries, and consequently to the prejudice of those near Ruabon. In Nos. 1,2, and 3, Mr. Pickering and the Ruabon coal masters request that a gate and weighing ma- chine may he put up near Rug, about half way be- tween the Druid Inn & Corwen, where the Wrexham Road quits the Holyhead Road, as by that means the same penalties might lie levied upou coal carts coming from Wrexham, as are now levied upon those from Ruabon. In our Act of Parliament ( 59th Geo. 111. c. 30, sec, 37), there is a clause that the Commissioners shall not erect hiiy gafe or gates for the collection of tolls, between the town of Corwen and the Druid Inn. This clause, therefore, accord- ing to my construction, precludes the possibility of our erecting a gate or levying penalties at the place recommended by Mr. Pickering and the coal- masters. In No. 4, however, Mr. Pickering differs from this opinion, and thinks that though we have no power to collect tolls there, yet that we have power to erect a side gate and weighing machine and put the re. strictious in force. Now as the ouly means we have of putting these restrictions in force, is compelling the payment of a higher toll than usual* under the name of a penalty, I cannot think we possess the power of levying this higher toll, when it is admitted we have none whatever to demand the lesser. 44 If this point be established, Mr. Pickering's next proposition ( see No. 4) is to erect a gate and machine immediately on the west side of the Druid Inn, so as to catch all carts passing up the Bala Road, and also those going towards Cernioge along the Holyhead Road. The strict letter of the Act states, that no gate shall be erected between Corwen and the Druid Inn; now Corwen being east of the Druid Inn, tnere appears at first sight no law against the erection ofa gate at the west side of the Inn. But the Bala Road bends close round the end of the Inn, and quits the Holyhead Road ; and the intention ofthe clause recited, was to allow carts, & c. to pass from Corwen towards Bala, without paying any toll upon the Holyhead Road. It depends therefore upon the construction of this clause, whether we have the power to erect a gate ut the west end of the Inn. The precise letter of the clause does not appear to prevent us, but certainly its spirit and intention are decidedly against the erection. " A weighing machine might he put down- at the present tollgate, west of the Druid Inn, which would catch all the carts going along the Holyhead Road towards Cernioge, whether they came from Wrexham or elsewhere; but the trifling number which pass into that mountainous district, would never pay the Commissioners for the expense, and I think would be of very little service to the Ruabon collieries. ' 4 The assertions in No. 1, that the restrictions had 4 diverted all the coal carriage from Ruabon parish 4 to the collieries in the neighbourhood of Wrexham ;' and in Nos. 2 and 3, that it had diverted nearly all, are disproved by the fact of 245 carts and 52 wag- gons loaded with coals from Ruabon, See. having passed through the tollgate betwixt Corwen and Llang- ollen, in the short time of four weeks ending the 17th of November last ; and this is the gate referred to as the one where onr regulations are so strictly enforced. Nor is it the case, as stated in No. 2, that those restrictions are not general upou the Holyhead Road; as their operations extend over the whole ofthe Road west of Llangollen. 44 The 4 intended new tollgate and bar west of 4 Corwen,' mentioned in No. 3, is a mistake, as the Commissioners, I believe, never had an intention of putting one up there. 44 The petitioners, in the paper numbered com- plain that they are oppressed by the new regulations, and state the grounds upon which they rest their complaint. Having myself attended at the drawing up of the clause respecting narrow wheels and over- weight, I can state that the principle upon which that clause vvas founded, vvas to prevent, as much as possible, the injury which the Road would otherwise sustain from the heavy loads that would pass along it, aud the improper construction ofthe wheels then generally in us » . The common breadth of a cart wheel being then seldom more than 2^ inches vvas ill calculated for the heavy weights it had to carry, and the tire being generally fastened on with nails, the heads of which stood near an inch above its surface ; it was often the Case that more than a ton weight was resting on the head ofa nail only au incb square. In about every 6 inches one of these nail heads was buried in tbe Road's surface, and the stones beneath it completely crushed. The materials on each side of these punch- holes were always dis- placed ; and half a dozen carls following each other, never failed to cut the Road into ruts. The old principle of endeavouring to make bad Roads into good ones, by adopting very broad wheels and regulating the number of horses, was considered wholly erroneous. For, to have a good Road, it must iu the first place he properly constructed with well prepared and durable materials; and in the second place, kept in order, by preventing the injury that follows from excessive weights and ill con- structed wheels. In framing- the clause alluded to, it vvas considered that 4 inches was a proper breadth for a cart wheel, aud 15 cwt. as much as ought to rest upon it. 44 If a less breadth were allowed, the weight to be carried should be reduced in a greater ratio than the diminution of the breadth; for 15cwt. resting upon a breadth of 4 inches, does less injury than cwt. resting upon a breadth of 2 inches. The reason is, lhat a Road being composed. of a number of separate stones, a narrow wheel often works its way between them, and forms a rut by pressing them out of their places; whilst a broader wheel, by embracing a larger surface, would rest upon the stones and sub- ject them to no disturbance whatever. 44 If wheels of a greater breadth than 4 inches could he so constructed that the whole of that breadth should rest equally upon the Road, and so as simply to roll along Without any dragging, then the wider the wheels were the better. But this I consider next tiling to an impossibility ; and experience fully proves, that broad wheels upon the common con- struction, aie not much better than those of 4 or 5 inches; for a 9- inch wheel, instead of being bound with one plain ring of iron, has in general three iron rings or tires iu breadth, the middle one project- ing about half an inch above the other two, and so leaving the whole weight upon its breadth of 3 inches which ought" to rest upon 9. Wheu this middle tire is worn down to the~- level of the side ones, then another evil arises, which is, that the diameter of that side of the wheel which is nearest the cart or waggon, being greater than that of the other side, the wheel, instead of simply rolling on the surface, partakes partly of a rolling and partly of a dragging motion. For supposing the circum- ference of otic side of the nhecl to be a foot more than the oilier ( and as it is evident thaf each side must pass over the same space in any given time),* the consequence will be, that for every revolution which the wheel makes, the smallest'side must be dragged 12 inches. This objection applies also to' 6- inch wheels, though in a less degree; and even a 4- inch wheel, is not free from' it, though it is so trifling as scarcely fo produce any practical effect. If the- cotnmon 6- inch wheels are examined, it will be found, that upon a hard surface there is very seldom a greater breadth than 4 inches resting; at any one time upon the Road.; the remaining breadth,? therefore, is almost useless ; and I am satisfied, that additional bre'adth of wheels upon the common con- struction, cannot be an equivalent for the injury; done by greatly increased weights resting upon them. 44 As ( he penalties were intended to act as a prohi- bition of improper weights and wheels, it'would he useless to make distinction between the broad and- narrow; and what has already ' beeir stated, has, I think", shown that there is not So much difference in the injury done by a 6- ioch and a 4- iuch wheel, as the petitioners seem to suppose. 44 It is stated in the petition, that a one- horse cart is liable to the fine the same as if it were diawn by two, three, or more horses; this is not the case, a?; the fine is regulated by tiie number of horsf's ; sir" that if drawn by one horse, it is 5s. ; if by two horses, 10s. * and if by 3 horses, 15s. 44 Were wheels under 3 inches to Ire allowed to pass along the Road, by merely payiifg a light additional toll, it would not produce the effect in tended by the new regulations; and I can see no way of allowing them' to travel, but by reducing the Weight they have to carry. For instance, a pairof 2|. indh wheels' to carry only about 1 ton, and 2- inch' wheels 12 cwt. This might be au accommodation to a few fish and market carta. 41 It should be remembered* that before the new regulations were put iu execution, they were adver- tised in the provincial papers, printed circulars posted up and distributed, and every means taken to make them as public as possible, for two years before they came into operation ; and even" then, instead of levying the penalties upon all wheels under 4 inches, the Commissioners, with a view to press as lightly as possible upon the farmers, consistently with the principle upon which they were acting', allowed all wheels of 3 inches to pass, without inflicting the penalty." CHESTER ASSIZES.— Cottimjham v. Sir T. S. M. Stanley, Bart.— The parties are proprietors of contiguous coal- pits at Little Neston, and the present action was brought by the plaintiff to recover damages, in consequence of the defendant having- stopped up a road which passed through both their mines, so that plaintiff was unable to work a con- siderable part of his- mine.—- The Jury ( which was special), returned a verdict for plaintiff, damaoes £ 2000. Sir T. S. M. Stanley, Bart. v. Wharton— This was an action brought by the plaintiff, against the. defendant ( a farmer), for assisting in removing and concealing three cows, from a farm occupied by John Delainere ( defendant's father in- law),, a tenant of plaintiff, with a view of preventing them beiun- sold under a distress for rent.— Verdict for plaintiff damages £ 48, being double the value of the cows [ which verdict is authorised by a special statute passed for the protection of landlords in such cases. J At the above Assizes, sentence of DEATH was passed on 29 prisoners ; of w hom William Tongue aged 46, a carder, from Manchester, for abusing " Ann Cope, of Stockport, a girl Under ten years of age; George Groom, aged 32,- for assaulting, beating, and robbing, John Kennerley, on the highway, in the parish of Astbury, under very agg- ravated circum- stances; and James Lowndes, aged 25, for stealing in the dwelling house of James Webb, of Marthall two £ 5 notes, 21 sovereigns, and other money, are left for execution. Kettle, who ( at these Assizes) was sentenced to seven years'transportation, for picking pockets, is a" character well known in the Potteries as a svvago- er- ing blade, and f imiliarlv amongst the prime swells entitled " Ralller." A brother of thesame, of the name of Samuel Kettle, who had recently emerged from two years' imprisonment, in Laucaster strong- hold, for megging, was found guilty last week of a case of Forgery, in the same county, and received sentence of death ; and after his dying speech had been sold in the principal towns, it was discovered that he had beeu reprieved, and ordered to be trans- ported for life. The Kettles originate from ihe neighbourhood of Wolverhampton, in the vicinity of which place their mother keeps a small public house. They for some time kept the Marquis of Gran by public house, at Penkhull; and afterwards com- menced business in the Timber line at Liverpool, in the firm of Kettle and Co. but this soon went tu Pot . " Battler" then drew oo the UsMik of his wits for a living', and became a Leg of some note on the Turf; aud obeying his 41 ruling passion," levied contributions on the road, and was a successful PaiQ for several years, rising gradually into fame as a reputable Pick- pocket, in tbe first line of business; and travelled, the better to cover his purpose, with saddle- bags, asa Rider for a very respectable house! Attempt of Artificers to leave England.— Indictments were preferred at Chester Assizes against Thomas Evans, William Robinson, John Wriddowson, James Shaw, Henry Hill, John Swin- dells, and William Cocking, for attempting to leave this country and work iu a foreign land.— Miv Williams was employed by them as counsel, and Mr. Brown, of London, as their solicitor; and at the suggestion of the Attorney- General, and by the advice of Mr. Williams, they were induced to plead Guilty to the charge; and were in consequence bound over in sureties of £ 20 each, and to find each two sureties in £ 20, not to leave England for three years. At Stafford Sessions, James Slack, Sarcth Slacks Jame? Slack Mould, and Thomas Slack, were indicted and convicted of a conspiracy in hiring one John Mountjoy, an Irishman, to murder Joseph Slack, au old man, aud brother to the prisoner, James Slack. The disagreement between the parties arose out of some property belonging to the prisoners which had been mortgaged to the prosecutor, and now become his property. The only evidence against them was that of Mountjoy, wbo had been hired to effect their wicked purpose for £ 5. To James Slack Mould and Thomas Slack, two years' imprisonment vvas adjudged ; to James Slack, the brother, one year; and to Sarah Slack, six months. At the Stafford Sessions, last week, the Chairman stated that the County Rate had been reduced one- fifth during the past year ; and that, by rigid econo- my, the mortgage debt, aud all expenses in erecting and furnishing the Lunatic Asylum, would be liquidated in the course of the present year. EXECUTKTN AT WARWICK— On Friday last, William J idd, convicted at the Assizes of uttering forged £ 5 Bank of England notes, underwent the awful sentence ofthe law iri front of the county gaol, and in the presence of a more numerous assemblage of spectators than has ever been witnessed on a similar occasion. He was in his 39th year, and has left a widow and five children.— 11 is understood that he had long been suspected of uttering forged notes. Warnings, ail- monitions, and threats, which he very often received, were, however, insufficient to arrest him in the course he was pursuing-; impelled by that infatuation which seems to have characterized most of his ac- tions, and reckless of the consequences, he continued his mad and dangerous career until the strong arm ofthe law interposed; aud iu three weeks after his apprehension and commitment, he has paid, with his life, the dreadful penalty of his crimes. Union Hall — Hannah Tomkins was brought before R. G. Chambers, Esq. charged with having robbed another woman of her clothes.—- The pri- soner had been liberated from Brixton prison only on Friday se'nnight, after a confinement there of1 three months.—' The Magistrate asked tbe prisoner whether she had not got enough of tbe treading- mill at Brixton? The prisoner begged for mercy's sake not to be sent to the tread ing- mil I. She would prefer transportation. ' Fbe charge being proved, she was sent back to prison.— It is a remarkable fact, that since the fjinmis treading- mill has been erected at Brixton, ti e business of this office has greatly decii led. The thieves have gone to other placcs. The mill is so constructed th; t when a man ventures to be. idle in it, he receives a knock on the head from a piece of wood, wljich is so con- trived as to remind them of what they are to do.

SIR, Having but very seldom access to the Salopian Journal [ my residence not being either on the line of the regular Post or ou the route of your news- men], it is hy mere accident that I have just read therein the recent Letter of " T A. KNIGHT," containing ( among other expressions of equal Courtesy) the following passage: 44 As I have taken up my pen to write to you, I wish to'say a few words respecting a Letter signed 4 Clericus,' which appeared in your Journal between three and four years ago. The Reverend Writer of that Letter had the effrontery to accuse me of a wish to rob the Clergy, by a sweeping clause, of their property, fur the benefit of the Land- Owneis. I treated the calumny with silent contempt, because I thought it impossible that any person could give ruedit to such a charge upon the authority of a Writer who dared not give his name." After the perusal of this passage, I have only to request ihat the Editor of the Salopian Journal will take the earliest opportunity of reprinting tbe two successive Letters of" CLERICUS," with tbat Writer's real signature annexed to cach.

A. Knight's lust Agricultural Report for Herefordshire. To the Editor of the Salopian Journal. Mn. EDITOR, May 5,1817. As you must needs derive, in all cases, a far greater satisfaction from publishing the language of vindication, than from circulating that of censure, it is not permitted me to question, hut that the following remarks on certain parts of Mr. T. A. Knight's last Agricultural Report for Herefordshire will readily find admission into a vacant column of your Paper. " The great obstacles to all agricultural improve- " ment aud prosperity" ( Mr. K. is therein pleased to assure us) " tire Tithes; aud as they are now en- 44 forced, it has become impossible for the Farmier to 41 cultivate properly under them." But if this peremptory decision of Mr. K. be deemed just, nnd we feel ourselves, in consequence, constrained to derive, exclusively, from the cause above assigned, the English Farmer's general de- pression for the last two or three years, to what shall we rationally ascribe his no less general, and no less extraordinary elevation during the ten immediately preceding? Will it at all accord with the wonted accuracy and clearness of this writer's views and statements on other subjects to observe upon the present, that the baneful influence of the tithe- system was ( by a strange combination of eveuts) unnaturally suspended daring the one period, only to operate with increased malignity during the other? Such a judgment may, doubtless, be very readily and dogmatically pronounced by the author of the preceding extract; but so likewise, with an equal regard lo truth and reason, may the very contrary opinion be maintained by me. Resigning, however, entirely to Mr. Knight that license of gratuitous assertion on the present subject, which ( happily alike for the interests of Horticulture aud for his own fame) he has not esteemed it prudent to assume on others, I shall content myself at this time with observing briefly in reply, that had the tithe- system of this country really merited the un- mitigated censure bestowed upou it by Mr. Knight, its injurious tendency must, of necessity, be every where most clearly indicated hy the superior culti- vation of those lands to which its fatal influence has not extended, and l. y the comparative prosperity aud t'omfort of their occupiers. But does experience in any measure verify our natural expectations in this respect? Have, for instance, 44 our agricultural improvements and pro- sperity," for the last century, advanced with rapid strides only on the other side of the Tweed ? And has their progress been recently arrested exclusively on this? Or ( to try the merits nf the present question by a still more easy and equally decisive test) is the situation of those English Farmers, whose happy destiny has placed them on estates which have long beeu perfectly secure from the noxious tread of the tithe- collector, in any material, or even in any sensi- ble degree, superior to that of their lithe- burtheucd neighbours? Are tlieir lands ( generally speaking) at all better cultivated, their crops at all more abund- ant, or their rents annually paid with any greater punctuality and readiness? Such a result, if the preceding assertion of Mr. Knight be really founded in truth, must naturally and necessarily he every where observable; just as naturally and as neces- sarily as we always see the lighter scale the upper- most. But yet, notwithstanding the perfect reasonableness of these presumptions, iu no one district of the king- dom ( as far at least as 1 have, for my own part, ever yet personally noted, or been credibly informed) are any such comparative advantages found generally attached to the occupation of untilhed lands. I speak here, let it be understood, of the renters of estates exclusively : and to this ( the incomparably larger) class of English Agriculturists, the tithe- system, so entirely reprobated by Mr. Knight, is, I am mentally assured, not only generally harmless, luit generally benejicial; the sum total paid at pre- sent annually by the English tenant to the owner of ihe soil and to the owner of the tithe conjointly, being ( I have ample reason for believing) much inferior to that which, were the tithe- system hence- forth universally crbolished, he would be eventually compelled to pay iu yearly rent alone. With this avowed impression on my mind, it is scarcely necessary for me to say, that the only part of the community which I consider us destined to be in any respect benefitted by the abolition of tithes, are the proprietors of the soil. And to this class of cur fellow- subjects ( greatly superior in permanent substantial wealth as it confessedly now is to every olher) I have already expressed it as my full per- , suasion, that there would? accrue eventually, from the general subversion of the tithe- system, an in- crease of yearly revenue much' exceeding the aggre- gate amount of what is, at present, annually paid to the whole collective body of clerical and other tithe- proprietors. Great, however, in a pecuniary point of view, as we must needs account the benefit which would ultimately result to the owners of estates, from such n sweeping transfer of property as is here ideally contemplated, it is, doubtless, utterly forbidden us for one moment to conceive, that the judgment above pronounced by Mr. Knight, on the subject of tithes, is, in any measure, influenced by considerations of sin interested nature. All suspicion of this kind is, in the present instance, confessedly precluded ; Mr. Knight having ( with a degree of mental candour and liberality but seldom witnessed) been pleased 1o stale, in the most explicit terms, what are the real grounds of his unqualified condemnation of tithe- owners in general, and. of the clergy in parti- cular. His language on this head is literally the following :— 41 1 have recently spoken to some emi- 44 nent land surveyors; uud they state, that they 44 are not expected to value tithes according to the 44 sum the owner can get by collecting them, but in 14 propoition to the injury and inconvenience the 44 Farmer can be made to suffer by being compelled 44 to set out every tiifliug article of tit- lie." " The " Farmer complains of this- as dishonest on the part 4* of the tithe- owners, and particularly of the Clergy, ^ whom he is always pointing out, and asserting, on 4* every occasion, to be men without religion, honour, 44 or honesty." Trusting, Mr. Editor, tbat, in the judgment of other minds, as well as in my own, the author ofthe preceding extract will be generally considered as having, in the present instance, somewhat over- stepped tho e moral bounds which should ( and doubtless would) have been prescribed to his invec- livc by the suggcslion* of a truly christian spirit. I remain, vowr'js, & c. CHARLES PETERS. Such is the language applied in this Report ( without any qualification or exception) to Ihe collective body of our beneficed clergy • » ud were any considerable portion of that body really addicted to the injurious practice imputed to them, thus indiscriminately, iu th e former part ofthe preceding extract, most justly would ihey merit the opprobri- ous epithets bestowed upon them in the latter. Bnt by what kind of evidence docs the Writer of this Report sustain his heavy accusation? Is the numerous body thus severely criminated to he gene- rally condemned, on the sole testimony of the emi- nent land- surveyors above alluded to? This question the unbiassed tender will find it by no means diffi- cult lo resolve. For it being perfectly self- evident, that, wherever the thing prescribed is palpably injurious to a third party, both the employer and the employed must necessarily fall under one com- mon condemnation ; to assert, respecting these sur- veyors, that it is Iheir general practice to lend them- selves professionally* to the neighbouring tithe- owners in the manner above described, or even that they could have ever been prevailed upon know- ingly to excite or to encourage in the minds of such tithe- owners any expectation of the kind, is, beyond all question, virtually the very same with character- izing them as utterly destitute of moral prohitv. Thi » , however, being admitted, it will be for Mr. T. A. K either candidly to own, that he has ( through involuntary misconception) incorrectly stated the real purport of these gentlemen's late conversation wiih him on the subject of tithe- valuing; or else it will be incumbent oti him to assign some valid reason, why, iu this particular instance, we may with safety and consistency, renounce entirely the ordinary method of appreciating human testimony, and give to these 44 eminent land- surveyors" implicit credit for the correctness of iheir recent charge against their clerical employers; even when, by the very terms in which that charge is urged, they themselves stand manifestly self- convicted of the grossest practical dishonesty ! We may also, in this case, reasonably expect to be informed hy Mr. K. why, if we once admit the pre vious subserviency of these gentlemen to the dis- honest wishes and directions of the neighbourin clergy, we may uot likewise justly entertain a very strong suspicion of their being, iu reality, equally prone to be seduced from the strait line of christian verity bv the well- known sentiments ( with respect to tithes) of a certain powerful Lay Patron ! It is for Mr. T. A. K. to remove the apparently solid ground of these objections ; and since accusa- tion and conviction can never be, in any case, regarded by him as terms at all synonymous, his candour ( it is not to be doubted) will readily excuse one further query on this head, viz. whether, ou the principle just suggested, we may not satisfactorily account for the peculiar phraseology of tbe Here- fordshire farmer, when speaking of tithes and cle- rical tithe- owners, in the audience of Mr. T. A Knight. ! Entirely waving, however, the benefit of any favourable inference that might be drawn from this latter consideration, I shall at once acknowledge the general prevalence of loud complaints, on the part of the Herefordshire Yeomanry and Tenantry against the beneficed Clergy of their neighbourhood. But notwithstanding this acknowledgment, the real point at issue will still remain altogether undecided: the sole object of the present discussion and enquiry being, in reality, not how far sucb complaint the vicinity of Downton Castle, are loud and general bnt how far they are in reason to be considered as actually well founded. Now, greatly to dislike, nnd with proportionab severity to criminate, either those piiblick or those private characters, by whose behaviour we have Ion felt, and still feel ourselves, materially aggrieved, is doubtless, perfectly accordant with a well- know principle of onr common nature. But then, ma not the very same unfriendliness of temper, consequent asperity of language, be often traced to a source entirely different ? Do we not ( I mean), as attentive observers of human sentiments and conduct, find ample reason for ascribing them, on numberless occasions, to the powerful influence of that unchris- tian principle, which naturally, and almost involunt- arily, prompts men— 44 odisse quein laeseriut"— to hate where they have wronged? Far be, indeed, from me ( when thus applying this most humiliating, because this most just reflexion of the philosophic Annalist), the imputation of I involving, in one common charge, the whole col- lective body of the Herefordshire Yeomanry and Tenantry : such general and indiscriminate censure would ( in the judgment of discerning and duly- tempered minds), deservedly reflect far more dis- grace on the accuser, than On the accused. Still, however, as the honest advocate of truth nnd equity, I feel mvself on this occasion, constrained to arid upon the subject, that where in any one quarter of this kingdom, it is in the power of Mr. T. A. K. to name a single Cle'gyrnan justly chargeable with the injurious mode of conduct described in his late Report, there would it be easy for the impartial observer of men's behaviour to substantiaie a similar accusation against thousands aud thousands of the Laity. Ami this deliberate assertion I make, with perfect confidence of its accuracy, on the following simple ground; because, with opportunities of forming a correct judgment respecting the moral principles and the practical conduct of our Established Clergy, far superior to any which Mr. T. A. K. can reasonably be imagined to have ever had, iu no oue instance ( most solemnly do I aver), have I ever known or believed a Brother Clergyman justly obnoxious to the charge of prescribing ( either directly or indi- rectly), to the valuer of his Tithes the dishonest mode of valuation above stated by Mr. K. CHARLES PETERS. May 20,1817. * 44 In their vocation.'" FARMERS. , CRy the Right Hon. Edmund Burlte.) " It is a perilous thing to try experiments oil the farmer. The farmer's capital ( except in a few persons and in a very few places) is far more feeble than commonly is imagined. The trade is a very poor trade; it is subject to great risks and losses. The capital, such as it is, is turned but once in the year; in some branches it requires three years before the money is paid. 1 believe never less than three in the turnip aud grass land courses, which are the prevalent courses on the more or less fertile sand and gravelly loam, and these compose the soil in the south and south- east of England, the best adapted, and perhaps the only ones that are adapted to the turnip hus- bandry. Jt is very rare that the most prosperous arrner, counting the value of their quick and dead stock, the interest of the money he turns, together with his own wages as a bailiff or over- seer, ever does make twelve or fifteen per cent, by the year on his capital. I speak of the prosperous; in most of the parts of England which have fallen within my observation, I have rarely known a farmer who to his own trade has not added some other employment or traffic, that, after a course of the most unremitting parsimony and labour ( such for tbe greater part is theirs), perseveriug bis business for a long course of years, died worth more than paid his debts, leaving his pos- terity to continue iu nearly the same equal con- flict between industry and want, in which the last predecessors before him lived and died. Observe that I speak of the generality of farmers who have not more than from 150 to 300 or 400 acres. There are few in this part of the country, within the former or much beyond the latler extent; unquestionably in other places there are much irger; but I am convinced, whatever part of England be the theatre of his operations, a farmer who cultivated 1,200 acres, which I consider as a large farm, though I know there are larger, cannot proceed without any degree of safety and effect, with a smaller capital than £ 10,000, and that they cannot, in the ordinary course of culture, make more upon that great capital of £ 10,000 than 1,200 a- year." 44 As to the weaker capitals, an easy judgment may be formed by whatever small errors they may be further attenuated, enervated, rendered unpro- ductive, and perhaps totally destroyed. This constant precariousness, and ultimate limits of a farmer's fortune, on the strongest capital, I press not only on account of tbe hazardous speculations of the times, but, because the excellent and most useful works of » iy friend, Mr. Arthur Youtig, tended to propagate that error ( such I am very certain it is) of the largeness of a farmer's profits. The Holkham Agricultural Meeting will not take place tbis year. A Devizes Paper says—" Fulwar Craven, Esq. of Chilton- house, held his audit for receiving his rents due at Michaelmas last, on Friday, the 29th of March; on which occasion he iu the most liberal manner made an allowance to his tenants of 40 per cent, on the yearns rent from Lady Day, 1821." MFRACULOUS ESCAPE.— As several workmen were employed iu tbe repairs of an old well at the farm of Mr. Herbert, of Broadwell, Monmouth shire, a part of the materials suddenly gave way, aad buried John Briffet, a mason, engaged at the bottom of the well, and John Hayward being near him, under the ruins. Under these circumstances the greatest apprehensions prevailed amongst the other men engaged* and sending to Chepstow for assistance, John Atkins, with the greatest intre- pidity, ventured within the dreadful chasm, in order to render his fellow- workmen lhat help which, to human probability, seemed unavailing. Hay ward was first rescued, much bruised, but by me- dical assistance he is likely to recover. While Atkins was engaged in rescuing Briffet, the whole remain- ing mass of stones, & c. fell, and once more involved the latter with his brave deliverer under a dcplh of nearly 20 fathoms; but a way was yet made for their escape. Atkins, providentially, at the time of the latter fall, had lifted a piece of board above his head, which turning the fall of the first stones a little to the one side, a natural arch was formed for him, and there being a small conduit near, he was enabled to remove, with a trowel he held iu hia hand, the mould, stones, nnd rubbish, iu which he also was entangled, and, after an hour's exertion, he made his way to the surface, to the great joy of his affliclcd wife and friends. Their attention was now callcd to Briffet, who bad been plunged below the conduit, and it therefore became necessary to remove upwards of a hundred tons of stone, & c. This was effected by the praiseworthy assistance of Mr. Herbert and other benevolent persons, assisted by Jbhn Couev, the brother in- law of Atkins, and, after thirteen hours' suspense aud terror, they res- cued BrifFet. The. whole of the men have large families dependent oa thorn fur support. Within the last thirty years, it is calculated that Lincolnshire alone upwards of 300,000 acres of heath, wolds, and fen lands, have been converted into arable. The Quarterly Review says:—" Wheat may be cheap at 90s. per quarter and dear at 80s. and the labouring poor may be wretched with the quartern loaf at six- pence, and comfortable when it at sixteen- pence.— We have lately heard a great deal of Ihe cheapness of living ou the Continent. In France, we are told that beef aud mutton may be had from 3| d. to 4d. per lb. and that the quartern loaf is not above seven- pence ; but, then, those who wish to extol the cheapness of living in France, do not tell us that the wages ofa common labourer are a franc or fen peuce, and that weaver or other mechanic may earn, by close application, from thirteen to eighteen pence per day ; the common labourer iu England who earns from 2s. to 2s. 6d. per day, and who gets his pound of good meat for eight peuce, and his quartern loaf for one shilling, has nothing to envy the la- bourer of France, much less has the manufacturer and mechanic of England. If the delusion of the word cheapness is to seduce any one from his native country, we should recommeud him to take up his abode in Russia, where he could purchase as much beef as he can devour for about three half- pence, drink as much quass as he can swallow for one penny, and get plenty of garlic for nothing, and he may, probably, earn, by hard labour, about three- pence a day ; or, if he extends his journey o China, he may purchase as much rice as he can ! eat for a penny, an inch of fat pork to season it | for a half- penny, and a cup of scaw chew to wash it down for another half- penny, and, by working like a Chinese, he may, perhaps, earn two- pence half penny per day." We learn from Manchester, that business is at present very brisk there. A great deal of new machinery has been set in motion. The manufac- tures of Glasgow also continue in a flourishing state. The woollen manufactures of the fine valley of Stroud, in Gloucestershire, are equally busy, and bard pressed to produce their broad cloths, blue, black, and scarlet, from 24s to 35s. a yard, for China, Hindustan, Mexico, Peru, Chili, aud other places; these are no longer taken to London by slow weekly waggons, but by daily flying vans. We are, however, sorry to learn, that the iron trade in Monmouthshire is very bad ; and that tumults were apprehended on the part of the workmen, arising from the low rate of wages.-— Leeds Intelligencer. Captain Hal- ford's Trotting Match.— This match for the Captain's horse to trot 17 miles within an hour, for 200 guineas, was renewed on Thursday lasl, and the failure on Monday se'nuighrt gave it additional interest. The horse upon that occasion did eight miles and a half, with i I stone upon his back, within half an hour; but, upon being pushed to do 17 miles within an hour, the match was lost by 10 seconds, and it led to tbe present one, the backers of time thinking that too much had been taken out of the horse to complete the 17 miles so soon after. The ground over which the horse trotted was two miles of the same as he performed on Monday, on the Bury road He carried 11 stone in the half hour race, and 10 stone in the hour race; and in this instance he carried 10 stone and a half, and did each two miles as follows :— Funeral of Sir A. Boswell• i Ayr, April 11.— Yesterday the remains of Sir Alexander Boswell were consigned to the tomb ; for which purpose the body had been brought from Fifeshire to Auchinleck House. We understand it was tbe intention of the relatives of the deceased that the funeral should have been private^ but an inclination to gratify the natural and expressed anxiety of the 1st regiment of Ayrshire Yeomanry Cavalry to attend the funeral of their Colonel, and the ready acquiescence and participation in this desire and feeling by the Lord Lieutenant of the County, altered this intention. Accordingly, about noon, almost the whole of the 1st Regiment, mounted, nnd the other gentlemen and tenantry invited tothe funeral, approached the house. Many of them had travelled from a great distance, and some refresh- ment became necessary, as well as being usual. An elegant repast was accordingly served up to the Noblemen and Gentlemen in the house, and to the cavalry, & c. on the lawn. This repast was prefaced by an appropriate blessing from the Rev. James Boyd, the Minister of Auchinleck, and followed by a thanksgiving from the Rev. J. Lindsay, of the neighbouring parish of Ochiltree, some time Mi- nister of Auchinleck. At the conclusion of the re- freshment, the body was removed from the house to the Hearse, and the procession formed uud proceeded in this order: The 1st Regiment of Ayrshire Yeomanrv, mounted, and under the command of Captain William Camp- bell, of Fairfield, in the reverse order, followed by the bugles belonging to the corps. The tenantry and other Gentlemen ofthe neighbour- hood, to the number of nearly five hundred. The Undertaker and bis assistants. The Body in a Hearse drawn by six horses. The departed Baronet's coach. His groom, and olher servants and dependants. His only son, a youth of 15, accompanied by Lord Glenlee, Lord Balmuto, and Sir James Mout- gouierie Cunningham, in a coach and four. The Right Hon. Lord Glasgow, the Lord Lieutenant of ihe County ; the Hon. John Douglas; and General Leslie, in a coach aud four. Then followed between 20 and 30 carriages, contain- ing the principal friends of the deteased, und the chief Gentry of the County. In this order the funeral proceeded to Auchinleck church- yard, before which the cavalry filed off, and the rest of the attendants proceeded on towards the church, the Yeomanry meanwhile resting on their swords. The body was then removed from the hearse, and deposited in the family vault under the aisle of the church. The 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 deceased. Besides the numerous attendants at the funeral, it is computed there were upwards of 10,000 spectators collected from the neighbouring villages and sur- rounding country— a number almost incredible, con- sidering the li mited extent of the population iu that quarter. The rank, talents, and character of the departed— the cause and manner of his death— and the loss his relatives and society have thereby sus- tained— all combined with the extraordinary so. lemnity ofthe funeral scene to render this altogether one of the most striking dispensations of Providence that has occurred in this quarter for a considerable time past, and it cannot fail to make on all u deep and lasting impression. Paris General Post Office. In the sitting of the Chamber of Deputies, on the 12th instant, on the proposition of a grant for the Post- Office, M. de Girardin rose to denounce the system of espionage, which, he contended, was exercised in that establishment. Under the ancient system, observed M. GIRARDIN, letters were unclosed ; and at the epoch of the exile of the Parliaments it was done in so scandalous a manner, that the merchants of Rouen took the reso- lution of simply closing their letters with a pin. The reproof was piquant no doubt ( a laugh), but it was well merited. Every one laughed, but nothing was amended. Nevertheless it was not lost upon France. It was remembered in the convocation of ihe States- General, and all the Deputies were required to de- clare against the violation of the secrecy of letters, and to exact that it should be respected. The Con- stituent Assembly, penetrated with this principle, rendered it sacred by the celebrated discussion which took place in the sitting of the 17th 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 tbe port of Brest. Several Deputies proposed that the letters should be opened for this purpose. Chapelier exclaimed, 44 that the violation of the| secrecy of correspondence was a crime, and that in no case could public safety require such a sacrifice on the part of virtue." The most distinguished Deputies of that illustrious as- sembly participated in this idea, and it was developed bv Mirabeau with all the force of his eloquence. His speech produced such an effect, that the secret office for opening letters was suppressed, and an interval of twelve years elapsed before it was re- es tablished. ( Murmurs on the right.) I allow th?: t letters were opened under the Government of Na- poleon. That was certainly a great evil ; hut they were only opened at the Paris post- office. Th/? se- crecy of correspondence was respected in # 11 the country post- offices. Now, however, letters are opened in the departments: this cannot be doubted, since the general councils have demanded that letters be stamped with the day of their arrival, and that of their departure. ( Interruption.) This proposition, so useful and strongly supported, has been repeated every year. The refusal to accede to it confirms all the suspicions, or rather all the realities, of which I have been speaking. You well know that under the last administration the post- office opened letters. ( Voice on the right, 44 You know it also, for you were then a Prefect.") But is the law of July 10, 1791, on the Secrecy of Correspondence repealed ? Has article 87 of the Penal Code lost its force? These questions are daily asked, and what is felt on the subject cannot be doubted when the secrecy of pri- vate correspondence is every day impudently violat- ed. The agents of the police know that if they were NORFOLK ASSIZFS.— Hardy 4* Co. v. Soyce Sf Co.— The plaintiffs brought an action against the defendants, the proprietors of the Yarmouth Star Coach, which, from the carelessness of the driver, was overturned in February last year : by this accident a traveller of the plaintiffs was killed, and they now sought to recover the expenses incurred on account of the melancholy event, and also for loss of service. The object of the plaintiff s was stated to be, to obtain some compensation for the widow and six children of their traveller, who were left unprovided for. The Jury gave a verdict for the expenses, £ 360. 3s. 6d. and £ 100 for los* of service. EXECUTION AT STAFFORD.— On Saturday, the 6th instant, Charles Tayler, convicted of coining, was executed in front of Stafford couuty gaol. From the time of his commitment, he never entertained any expectation of escaping the punishment awarded by the law for a crime so injurious to society. Be- fore trial, he avoided the company of the other pri- soners, and passed his time in reading and praying, in which he was assisted by the County Chaplain with unwearied assiduity. After condemnation be was calm, and resigned to his fate, though at times he wept on account of his family, consisting of a wife and eight children, 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 so much affected 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 previous to his execu- tion, he slept from ten to twelve o'clock, ond em- ployed the remainder of his time in fervent prayer ; lie avowed that he felt strong confidence in" the mercy of God, and had hopes that his many trans- gressions would be pardoned. Soon after seven on 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 bro- ther's innocence, though he did not deny his own guilt. He ascended the drop precisely at eight o'clock, and while the executioner adjusted the halter, & c. he prayed with the Chaplain most de- voutly, shedding tears freely, but appearing to be very collected. In about six minutes after eight the drop fell ; being a stout muscular man he seemed to suffer much, but in seven minutes life appeared to be extinct. After hanging the usual lime his body was cut down, and delivered to hU friends ( who hail brought a coffin and a one- horse cart) to be interred at Aldridge. The unfortunate mau was 36 years of age, a native of Bromsgrove, and had resided at Aldridge about five years ; be was ostensibly a small farmer, nailer, and carrier. On Saturday, William Murray Borthwick, of the Glasgow Sentinel, at present prisoner in the tolhooth of Edinburgh, was served with an indict- ment, for breaking into the office of that Paper, and taking away papers out of lockfast places, to stand trial before the Circuit Court of Justiciary at Glasgow, on Monday the 22d inst.— Glasgow Herald. DUELLING.— It appears that in 172 combats, inc'uding 314 individuals, 69 persons were killed; that in three of these, neither of the combatants survived; that 96 were wounded, 48 of them desperately and 48 slightly, and that 188 escaped unhurt.— From this statement it will he seen that atber more than one ( Ifth of the combatauts lost their lives; and that nearly one half received the bullets of their antagonists. It appears also that only 18 trials took place; that six of the arraigned were acquitted, seven found guilty of manslaughter, and three of murder: that two were executed, and eight imprisoned during different periods.— A Brief Display of Ihe Origin and History of Ordeals, by J. P. Gilchrist. The letters received from Norfolk and Suffolk are far from being satisfactory. Two men were executed at Norwich on Saturday, for firing a stack- yard at Diss, a few weeks ago. One of them died very penitent, but the other was in good spirits, and attempted to justify his conduct. On Friday there was a great riot at Wrentham, close to the properly of Sir T. Gooch. An express was sent to Norwich for the Lanccrs, and their interference dispersed the assemblage. Mr. Gooch, the Member for the County, was present, and read the Riot Act himself. The Aberdeen Chronicle says—" We under- stand that William Scott, formerly at Gorthy, was, on Wednesday last, committed to prison, charged with the crime of forgery. The offence was committed in 1816, or early in 1817, and Scott then absconded and went to America; but, from some unaccountable fatality, he returned to the neighbourhood of his former residence and was secured at an early hour on Wednesday mornin by a party of Officers sent from Perth." 1st two miles 2d ditlo 3d ditto 4th ditto 5th ditto 6th ditto min. sec 7th two miles 6 54 8th ditto 6 58 The last mile 3 40 36 58 not protected by theGovernment, they would for every violation render themselves liable to a fine of from 16 to 300 francs, and to exclusion from public em- ployment for a period of from five to ten years. But the secret bureau is supported at a great expense by the Government. At least thirty 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 ihe Posts leads into the secret offices. The entrance of it is shut by a con- cealed door. As soon as this is opened, we find our- selves in the offices of persons charged to discover the keys to the different ciphers employed in the corre- spondence, or inthe workshops of engravers occupied in taking impressions on plates of lead of the im- pressions of the arms and seals which are employed lo secure letters. Several voices.— It would appear that you have heretofore frequented this cabinet. Other voices— Such things might be done in the Prefecture also. M. de GIRARDIN.— I do not know whether such things are done in Prefectures, but I give you my word of honour that nothing of the kind was ever done in mine. These letters are finally carried to a kind of laboratory, where there are instruments of a very peculiar construction— close fires to melt the wax, aud cauldrons of boiling water to loosen wafers. ( Interruption.) In short all is mystery in this sub- terraneous asylum and men employed to discover the secrets of every body are themselves a secret to all the world. After some further observations, and quoting a passage from the speech of Mirabeau, M. de Girardin concluded by moving the suppression of the secret bureau. He observed, that if that office was not given up, he would take anotheropportnnity to state things, which prudence at present induced him to withhold. The printing of M. de Girardin'sspeech was called for, but was negatived in consequence of the opposi- tion of the right side. M. de VILLELE, the Minister of Finance, said, that according to the last speaker's argument, the pre- tended violation of correspondence could not be the cause of the diminution of the Post- office Revenue, since he had maintained that that violation had long existed, and had only experienced a short interrup- tion. Asa Member of the Council of Ministers, he ( M. de Villele) could declare that he had never in that Council, in which all affairs relative to the safety of the state are discussed, heard any thing which could lead to the suspicion of such a practice as had heen described. With regard to the circulation of papers, h. e observed that no journal more than another belonged to the Government. With the exception of the official part of the Moniteur, the Government caused nothing to be inserted in any paper. Hut having renounced the censorship, the Government was entitled to participate in ihe ad- vantages of the change: and the advantage peculiar to it was, that it could not be held lo be responsible for what it did not avow. General FOY condemned the present system of the post- office, and was replied to by M. de Castlebajae, but no question was put, and this discussion had of course no result. STEEPLE CHASE.— A steeple chace match of eight miles, between Mr. Williams's bay horse Bergami, and Mr. M. R. Jones's chesnut hoi^ e Moonraker, for 500 guineas, was decided near I Haverfordwest. The horses were rode by their respective owners. Bets were five to four on Moon- raker, who took the lead at starting, and kept it for the first four miles in good style, when Bergami passed his opponent, and won the match cleverly. The ground was admirably chosen, embracing a great variety of leaps, and as the point of destination was in the immediate neighbourhood of Haverford- west, an immense assemblage of Ladies and Gentle- men were present to witness the race, which was accomplished by Bcrgami in 37 minutes and 14 seconds. The old and singular custom of cracking the gad or whip, in Castor Church, on Palm Sunday, has been again performed. An estate at Broughton, near Brigg, is held by this custom. On the morning of Palm Sunday, the game- keeper, or some servant on the estate, brings with him a large gad or whip, with a long thong : the stock is made of the mountain ash, or wicken tree, and tied to the end of it is a leathern purse, containing 30 pence ( said to have in it formerly 30 pieces of silver); while the clergyman is reading the first lesson ( Exodus ix.) the man having the whip cracks it three times in the church porch; & then wraps the thong round the stock, and brings it on his shoulder through the church, to a seat in the chancel, where he continues till the second lesson is read ( Matthew xxvi.) he then brings the g& d, and kneeling upon a mat before the pulpit, he waves it three times over the clergyman's head ( the thong is fastened, as before observed), and continues to hold it till the whole of the lesson is read, when he again returns to his seat, and remains till the service is over. He then delivers the gad to the occupier of a farm, called Hundon, half- a- mile from Castor, At Surrey Assizes, Xerxes, the driver of the Godalming stage- coach, obtained a verdict of £ 500 damages, against the London Water Works Com- pany, for tbe negligence of their servants, in leaving a part of the road, which they had excavated for laying down pipes, improperly filled up, by which the coach he was driving upset, and he had his thigh broken. At the same Assizes, Henry Palmer and T. J Park were found guilty of a conspiracy to obtain by fraud bills of exchange to the amount of £ 2000. and warrants of attorney to the same amount, from Sir Thos. S. Champneys, Bart. At the Gloucester Assizes, Robert and William Fiench, ( millers,) against whom five bills of indictmeut were found true, were convicted of a fraud, in converting their master's property to their own use, under the pretence of perquisites, and entered into recognizance in £ 100 each, and two sureties in £ 20 each, for their good behaviour for two years, and for their appearance when called upon to receive judgment. Mr. Justice Richardson, in the course of his charge to the Grand Jury for lhat county, said— 44 This county, I believe, had the honour to take the lead in the internal administration and con- struction as well as discipline, of gaols ; and 1 am happy to observe the public attention still engaged in this interesting subject, that enlarged improve- ments are uow going on, and others under con- sideration. One most important point has been effected in nearly all tbe prisons in the kingdom, by rendering them free from infection; so that instead of being subject to the propagation of disease, our gaols are now, perhaps, the most healthy of all our numerous populous establish- ments. Though much has been done in the system Declassification, more still remains to be done in populous counties, where the offenders are numer- ous. You have also adopted in your penitentiary, a principle, with respect to persons confined after conviction, which, I believe, has not been imitated in any other institution of the kind— I allude to solitary confinement. By this, the law does not mean that a person should be excluded from all communication with his friends, but merely that he should be left to himself during a considerable portion of the time for which he should be so sentenced. On the subject gf hard labour, I must observe, that the law is not carried into execution unless the prisoners have hard labour provided for them in the gaol, which is intended to be more an object of punishment and example to other of- fenders, than of profit to the proprietors." From a Return of the number of Convicts sent out of the United Kingdom from January 5, 1816, to January 5, 1822, which has been printed by order of the House of Commons, it appears that the number of males transported during that period has been 15,218; while the number of females had been only 1,105. A gentleman of Manchester has taken out a patent for a very ingenious machine for making weavers' reeds, of either steel or brass. It puts in and finishes no less than 160 dents per minute, and the workmanship is greatly superior to any thing of the kind done by hand, particularly in fine reeds, for every part is mathematically true; added to which, there is a considerable reduction of price. The patentee is now erecting a large manufactory. His invention is highly approved of, especially by the silk- weavers. We learn, by private letters of the 4th ult. from St. Petersburg!!, that the complaints of distress in Russia are still more general than in England. The merchants are so weighed down by the total derangement of commerce, that there is no calcu- lating the extent of their ruin. The common people in many provinces are suffering the extreme of human misery.— The unparalleled mildness of the winter, which rendered the roads almost im- passable, has produced these effects. THE PHIDIAS OF ACHILLES, PURPOSED TO BE ERECTED, BY THE LADIES OF ENGLAND, IN COMPLIMENT TO THE DUKE OF WELLING- TON.— This colossal bronze statue, to receive which preparations are now making in Hyde Park, is cast from a mould made upon the sublime marble, generally attributed to the hand of Phidias; and which, since the papacy of Sixtus V., has adorned the Quirinal Hill, at Rome. The horse which accompanies the original has been omitted, strong- doubts being entertained, whether it has not been an adjectment of a later age ; for, although of considerable merit, its forms are not in unison with the grandeur of construction and heroic charactcr of the man. The purpose for which ibis astonish- ing work was originally designed has never been satisfactorily ascertained ; the most enlightened antiquaries of the present age imagine it to have been erected in honour of Achilles, and Mr. West- macott, adopting that opinion, has armed him with a parazonium ( a short sword) and shield. Great care and labour have been bestowed in restoring the surface of the work, which in the original has suffered greatly from its exposed situation, and the success which has attended the execution of Ihis extraordinary enterprize, has happily achieved the preservation of the sublimest effort of human genius in art. The material em- ployed in this stupendous work has chiefly been supplied from the cannon taken in the victories of the illustrious Duke, in compliment to whom the statue is dedicated. It is the largest cast ever undertaken in this country,, or, indeed, since the restoration of the art of casting in brass by Zenodius, now 18 centuries since, the statue itself being 20 feet in height, and its weight nearly 36 tons. It will require no inconsiderable share of ingenuity to convey this ponderous statue from the artists' foundry in Pimlico to its pedestal of granite in Hyde Park, where its erection is expected to take place in the course of five weeks. Dreadful Accident.— On Tuesday evening, as Mr. Briggs, of Brighton, hatter, and Mr. Knowles* of Cowfold, were returning from Newhaven, abont halfway between Rottingdean and Brighton, ut a hill near Roedean Gap, they were precipitated over the cliff, and, lamentable to add. were killed on the spot. The two unfortunate individuals, called at a public- house at Rottingdean, kept by Mr. Sutton* about nine o'clock in the evening, where they stop- ped a few minutes, and proceeded towards Brighton, taking the road nearest the cliff; at the brow of the hill, above Roedean Gap, it is supposed, from tire darkness of the night, they lost the tract of the road, and in endeavouring to regain it by turning the horse in a contrary direction from the cliff, the animal, it is supposed, ran back, as be was known to be guilty of that vice, and ignorant of their nearness to ihe edge of the cliff, were, as vve before stated, precipi- J tated over it, a depth of at least 100 feet. The accident was discovered by three men, who lodge at a cottage in a brick. yard, at Black Rock bottom, who were returning from Rottingdean, at half- past teu. One observed a hat laying near tbe edge of the cliff, and, led from that circumstance lo suppose an accident had occurred, on looking down, ima^ gined he saw something at the bottom, and they pro- ceeded to Greenway Gap, about half a mile from the spot, and found Mr. Knowles beneath a fragment of the cart, and Mr. Briggs, laying on his face, about eighl yards from him, but quite dead. The horse was killed, and the cart, with the exception of Ihe wheels, literally dashed to pieces. The men im- mediately returned to Rotlingdean, and informed Mr. Sutton of the circumstance, who, with the great- est promptitude, procured the assistance of the Pre- ventive Guard, aud immediately removed Ihe bodies to his own house. On their leaving Rottingdean, Mr Briggs expressed a desire to drive, which was objected to by Mr. Knowles, as his horse had a bad habit of gibing, and he himself was best able to manage him. The road, where the accident occur- red, is not more than three yards from ihe edge of the cliff, and is the highest brow beyond Roedean Gap, and without any kind of defence whatever. The body of poor Briggs appeared most mutilated, and was a shocking spectacle. That of Mr. Knowles did not present an appearance so horrible, bat from a blow received on the bead, he must have met with instantaneous death. The former gentleman was highly respected in Brighton, and has left a wife and eight children. Mr. Kuovvles was a resident of Cow- fold, and has left a family, we hear, of eleven children. From the violent concussion occasioned by the fall, the watch of each of the unfortunate men stopped, and from the direction of the hands of the watch of Mr. Briggs, this dread full occurrence took place exactly at twenty- nine minutes past nine o'clock, which corresponds precisely with the lime mentioned by Mr. Sutton, at whose bouse they called. JUNIUS.—- A writer in the Monthly Magazinft says, 44 When 1 was lately reading Woodfall' « edition of Junius's Letters, the writer, I observed, in a private letter says ' there are those about me who would rather see Junius improperly in print than not at all;' this shows at oncc 4 that he was not tlie keeper of his own secret,' as he asserted. The expression 4 we soldiers' was likewise meant to deceive the public. His compliment to the great orator shews his knowledge of him when only a youth. 4 Charles Fox is yet but in blos- som.' The defaulter of unaccounted millions passes unnoticed by Junius. I, therefore, say that Junius was a fiiend of Lord Holland, and that friend the Rev. Dr. Francis, father of Sir Philip Francis, and translator of Demosthenes and Horace. He was chaplain to Lord Holland and the Earl of Chesterfield. The preface to Demosthenes shows he was as great an admirer of civil liberty as the great orator; and in his preface to Horace of 22 pages there are as bold assertions and rounded periods as any in Junius: all the writers say he was an Irishman— so was Dr. Francis. The last note of Junius to Woodfall was dated in Jan. 1773, and Dr. Francis died in March following, in Bath. Junius was anxious lhat Mr. Garrick should not see his hand- writ ing, as Mr. G. knew it well, having brought out his tragedy of Eu , genia at Drury Lane Theatre." BEGGARS.—" Till this easy and gainful, though wicked trade of begging shall be suppressed, I do- not expect to see fewer but more beggars every day. It is well known that of late years many persons have come from afar to set up this trade here; and if speedy care be not taken to prevent it, this town and suburbs will drain all poor people into it; begging being a better trade here than any where else."— Fermin on the Poor, 1698. 44 Begging is mere scandal in the general; in the idle it is a scandal on their industry ; in the impotent it is a scandal on their country. People have such a notion in England of being pitiful and charitable, that they encourage vagrants, and by a mistaken zeal do more harm than good."— Giving Alms no Charity, 1698.
