To Dr. SMITH, Upton Magna. SIR, Shrewsbury, Feb. 10, 1821. SOME time since, during the winter treason, 1 had the misfortune lo have a fall, by which I received a wound iu my right leg; the wound did not appear at first to be of much con- sequence, but finding; Ihat its appearance became alarming. I placed myself under the care of a medical gentleman, of Shrewsbury. His efforts proving ineffectual, I applied to another of the Shrewsbury faculty, ami subsequently lo four c. thers, all of whom were reputed for Iheir powers in ihe healing art; bul rather than my wound being cured, it relapsed into a most frightful ulceration, lendered still more afflictive aud dis- tressing by the apparent necessity of my leg being . taken off. Having thus obtained all tbe advice ihat money could purchase, and also taken a most ( incredible quantity of physic, fiom which 1 did not derive ihe smallest portion of benefit, I was about to commit myself into the bands of the Surgeon, when fortunately, I was induced lo en- quire after Dr. Smith's Ploughman's Drops, and before I had taken the half of one small bottle Ihe wound began to assume the most healthy oppearauce I continued to take the Drops, lo Ihe amount of five small bottles, aud my leg gradually returned lo its wonted state of sound. * iess, and ha* continued so to ihe present time. It would be an ungrateful feeling ou my part were S lo withhold my heartfelt testimony to the valu- able properties which these Drops contain, and I flrn therefore called upon to avow that 1 consider this oue of the finest cures that ever came within my knowledge, aud i- hall be glad at any time to give my personal attestation to the same.

A SWEARER, one night imprecating his eyes, Was suddenly check'd by dismay and surprise ; For then it was fust that his image he saw, In WARREN'S Jet Blacking of splendid edit : — And shrunk from the view of ihe shadow por teutous, By Fate thatseern'd order'd on mission momentous; Till calming his fears by inspiring potations, Short slumber succeeded his potent libations. His friends, the meanwhile, had extinguished each light, And now he awoke to the chaos of night;— Mirth, wine, and warm fellowship, reign'd inthe room, To him that seern'd wrapt in obscurity's gloom. " In darkness!" he cried, ' tween surprise and affright, " In darkness," said one, " have you then lo6t your sight ? " If not, sure your optics four tapers should view " Defend us! they each burn both dimly aud blue.'' " Fate's minister then is the sprite of the Jet, " Aud thus his just doom has the reprobate met, " O would but the stranger of Mysl'ry that bore " The sprite in his Boot iny lost vision restore, " My future good life should atone for the past,— a I swear, and this oath too, shall now be my last." " The sprite of the Jet now agrees to your prayer," The stranger replied,—" of relapse then beware." With mystical bandage his eyes now were bound; The room while re- lighted;— then gladly he found, The gift re- produe'd that had never been lost, His sight; and the Jet this new incident backing, Amendment of morals assistance may boast, Accruing from WAIIREN'S unparallel'd Blacking.

The Duke of Cambridge's visit to England from Hanover this spring is postponed, owing to the expected accouchement of tbe Duchess, which, it is expected, will take place in the month of June. It appears from Saturday night's Gazette, tbat some queerly- dressed Gentry made their appear- ance at the last Drawing- room, and an order has been issued, that, in future, those who attend must wear bags and swords. Some of the parties have been probably iu the habit of carrying hags, but if they are obliged in future to wear swords, they may trip up their heels I The present number of English Catholic Peers is seven, viz.— The Duke of Norfolk, the Earl of Shrewsbury, Lords Stourton, Petrc, Arundel, Dormer, and Clifford. Eight Irish— The Earls of Fingall and Kenmare ; Viscounts, Gormanston, Nettcrville, Taaffe, and Southwell; Lord Triplles- town and Ffrench. Two Scotch— The Eat Is of New burgh and Traquair. In all seventeen. tn the Court of King's Bench, on Tuesday, the rule obtained by Mr. Scarlett, to shew cause, why a criminal information should not issue against J. A. Williams, as Editor of the Durham Chronicle, for an article reflecting on the Clergy for their conduct 011 the death of her late Majesty, was made absolute. On Thursday morning at five o'clock, tbe inhabi- tants of Budge Row were alarmed by the. falling of two houses, Nos. 6 and 7, the first occupied by Mr. Bowles, the other by Mr. Parry.— The inmates in Mr. Bowles's house were Mr. and Mrs. B. their son ( aged four years), and a young Lady, who had arrived 011 a visit to Mrs. Bowles that day. On Mr. Parry's premises were Mr. P. two elderly maiden Ladies, named Osbaldeston, and Mr. Nichols. On the neighbours assembling, they found that Mr. Bowles, his son, the two Mrs Osbaldestons, Mr. Nichols, and the young Lady, were buried uuder the ruins. Mr. Parry was dressing ai the time, and hearing a sudden crash, fortunately got into the street before the house fell. Mrs. Bowles miracu- culonsly escaped, hut how she reached the street she cannot tell. A great number of workmen were instantly procured, and, after considerable labour, they succeeded in rescuing Mr. Bowles, Mr. Nichols, and the two Mrs. Osbaldestons, from the ruins. The three latter, much bruised, were immediately conveyed to St. Thomas's Hospital. Mr. and Mrs. Bowles ( the latter extremely ill from fright) were taken to the Crown Tavern. Mr. B. was greatly injured. At half past two o'clock the child was dug out of the ruins, and carried to St.. Antholine's Church. The head is much bruised, his leg broken, aud quite dead; and about five o'clock the young Lady was extricated. She was found with her knees bent, and her arm over her eyes. Life had not en- tirely forsaken her; but she expired shortly after being carried inlo the Church. Letters have been received from Major Denham, who commands the Expedition into the Interior of Africa, dated from Tripoli in the West, where they had arrived in November last. A salute was fired from the batteries on their landing, and the best understanding prevails between Col. Warrington, the British Consul, and the travellers, who has expressed his readiness to afford them all the assist anceand protection in his power. It was proposed that the Expedition should depart for Fczzan in February last, and a competent escort was provided to convey them considerably beyond Bornou, at which place the learned Professor Dr. Oudenay is to remain as British Vice Consul. ' They were all in high health and spirits, and entertained the most sanguine hopes of at least going far beyond any former UavcHere in that direction. It is stated in an American Paper, tbat, since the death of Christophe, a very alarming and per- nicious change has taken place at Hayti, both in regard to commercial transactions as well as those which should, under the existing Government, con- tribute to the welfare of its subjects. Confidence is destroyed, and swindling has taken its place. Nearly every port- charge is doubled, as well as all duties; one dollar per ton ( tonnage duty) is now exacted in lien of 50 cents. Several vessels have sold their cargoes to swindlers, and have now been kept waiting four months. If you have re- course to law aud the tribunal decides in your favour, the defendant is ordered to pay in 30 days ( if a resident), but at the expiration of that time, if he says he is unable to pay, 60 days extension of time is given ; if still unable to pay, he is allowed six months and so 011; until, finally, the plain- tiff is glad to come off without any thing, be brought in for costs of Court, and the swindler suffered, without molestation, to proceed on again. A person named Borthwick, cashier of the East Lothian Bank, Scotland, has absconded, taking with him cash and cash- notes, the property ofhis employers, to the amount of several thousand pounds : it is supposed he has sailed for America. The Dumfries Courier mentions the departure of two vessels, with emigrants, for America, from that place, on Sunday and Wednesday last; and observes, " I11 the present groupe of 263 souls, there arc very few tradesmen; by far the greater number have been bred as farmers and farm ser- vants, and some of them possess considerable property. One economical veteran, who wears 4 a sack scarcely good enough for a linseed bag,' car- ries out with him £ 1200 in sovereigns, and there are numbers that can muster 50, 60, 70, and £ 100 sterling." It is customary with the farmers who reside in the thinly- settled tracts of the United States, to suffer their hogs to run at large. These animals feed upon acorns, which are very abundant in our extensive forests, and in this situation they often become wild aud ferocious. A gentleman, while travellings some years ago, through the wilds of Vermont, perceived at a little distance before bim a herd of swine, and his attention was arrested by the agitation they exhibited. He quickly perceived a number of young pigs in the ccntre of the herd, and* that the hogs were arranged about them in a conical figure, having their heads ail turned out- wards. At the apex of this singular cone, a huge boar had placed himself, who, from his size, seemed to be master of the herd. The traveller now ob. served that a famished wolf was attempting, by various manoeuvres, to seize one of the pigs in the middle; but wherever be made an attack, the huge boar at the apex of the cone presented him- self, the hogs dextrously arranging themselves on each side of him, so as to preserve the position of defence just mentioned. The attention of the traveller was for a moment withdrawn, and upon turning to view the combatants, he was surprised to find the herd of swine dispersed, and the wolf no longer to be seen. On riding up to the spot, the wolf was discovered dead on the ground, a rent being made in bis side, more than a foot in length— the boar having, 110 doubt, seized a fa- vourable opportunity, and wilh a sudden plunge dispatched his adversary with his formidable tusks. — It is a little remarkable tbat the ancient Romans, among the various methods they devised for draw- ing up their armies in battle, had one exactly resembling the position assumed by the swine above- mentioned. The mode of attack they called the Cuneus, or Caput porcinum,-~ American Vaper. IRELAND.— The apprehensions of a scarcity inr the south and south- west counties increase daily. Lord Clonclirrv has offered premiums of £ 10 and £ 20 for the importation of potatoes by the canal into Limerick from the interior. The following is a copy of a circular, addressed by the resident Magistrates of the County of Clare to the absent landholders :— " Ennif, April 11, 182?. " SiR— We the festdent Magistrates ami Gentlemen' of the county of Clare, feel it < mr duty iu discharging' the full weight of responsibility which this calamitous season imposes np « » n us, to address you 011 the state in which the peasantry of this country is now placed. The failure ofthe potatoecrop has been so extensive, that we cannot calculate the proportion of our popu- lation of 200,000, who will be without food for the three months preceding" the coming- in of ihe new crops, at less than three- fourths of tlie whole.— The oat and hay crops have likewise failed to such an extent, that many of the cattle and horses of the country have already died. From the want of a sufficient quantity of seed, a large portion of the land must remain unsown ; and we greatly fear, that if some efforts are not speedily made, the scarcity will extend into a second and even a third year. Under these circumstances, we conceive it imperatively ne- cessary that some assistance should be given to the lower orders, to enable ns to avoid the evils of ab- solute starvation, with its equally destructive con- sequences, rapine and disease. Hitherto their conduct has heen peaceable and submissive, and will, we trust, continue so, if effectual measures are taken for their immediate relief. We now earnestly appeal to you, who are interested in ihe country and its inhabitants, to come forward at this awful crisis, and assist us with liberality. We have the honour to be, your obedient humble servants. " EDWARD O'BRIEN, Chairman." Loss of his Majesty's Ship Con fiance. Extract of a letter received at the New England Cotfee- house, 1st May :— We regret to have to add to the calamities already recorded, occasioned by the dreadful gale of Saturday and Sunday nights, the. loss of his Majesty's ship Confianee, with all her crew, consisting ef 120 men. This vessel sailed from Cove ou Sunday morning, in company wilh the Gan- uet; the former for the Galway station, the latter on a cruise in search of a smuggler, which was said to be hovering 011 the coast. The weather came 011 extremely hard, until it blew a tremendous gale. The Ganuet put into Kinsale, and theConftance kept at sea. On Monday morning, before day, shots were heard by the people residing near Mizcn Head, ori the south- west coast, which evidently proceeded from a ship in distress. When the day broke and the people came down to the coast, there was nothing to be seen but the gill figure of a vessel, which corresponds with that of ihe Confiance. The bodies of four marines have been washed ashore, and also a box, in which was contained the commission of the second Lieuten- ant ( Alexander) of the Confiance, which cannot leave a doubt that it was that vessel which unfortunately was lost. A11 account of this calamitous event reach- ed town at a lale hour ou Tuesday night, and such particulars as were known were transmitted to Ad- miral Colville, at Cove. We understand, that in endeavouring to pick up some pieces of the wreck, which were driven among the rocks, four of the country people were drowned. The Confiuuce was* commanded by Captain Morgan, who was first Lieu- tenant of the Eudymion, when that vessel captuied the American ship the President, and was promoted for his gallantry. To the loss of this officer of the Co 11 fiance we regret to add that of Lieutenant Shep- herd, who proceeded in her with the intention of joining the Brazen, which is stationed near Galway4 and commanded by his father." The following are said to be the names of the! passengers on board the Albion American packet, lost in Garretstown Bay, Ireland, as slated 111 our lasl:— Mr. Benyon, of Loudon; Mr. Nelson Ross, of Troy, near New York, und Mr. Covers, his brother- in- law; Col. A. J. Prevost; Major Gough, 58th Regiment; Mr. and Mrs. Clark, Americans; Mrs. Gardner and son, about 8 years old; Miss Powell, daughter of the Hon. W. D. Powell, Chief Justice of Upper Canada ; Mr. Dwight, of Boston; Mrs. Mary Pye, New York ; Professor Fisher, Newhaven, Con- necticut; Mr. Gurnee, New York ; Rev. Mr. Hill, of Jamaica, coming home by way of the United States; Mr. Proctor, New York ; Mr. Dcpont, a- id five other Frenchmen ; rfnd Mr. Everhart Chester^ of Pennsylvania. Steerage passengers— Mrs. Mary Brewster, Mr. Hurst, Mr. Morrison, and Stephen Chase. The only passenger saved was an American gen- tleman from Boston, who traded with Liverpool; he had 9000 dollars 011 hoard, all of which were lost. Several of the bodies have washed on shore, and among them Col. Prevost, in whose fob was found a small gold watch.— Major Gough's watch and seals have also been picked up.— A box of specie, contain- ing £ 5000 in foreign and English coins, addressed to the care of C. Hughes, Liverpool, has also been found.— A quantity of bills, drawn by British Officers in America, and others, on their Agents in England, Stc. have also been recovered, together with several bundles of letters. [ FROM THE WATERFORD MIRROR] At ten o'clock, 011 Sunday night, the bark Esther4 of and for Liverpool, from America, laden with cot- ton, ruin, See. ran ashore between Slade and Hook Tower, where she now lies a complete wreck. Of a crew of 13 persons, 5 only are saved. OLD BAILEY, MONDAY.— Eleanor Sleevesj was indicted for stealing £ 20, the property of her master, Mr. John Revett, of Deer- place, Somers Town, in his dwelling- house, and also for setting fire to the said premises. The case excited very con- siderable interest, and the Court was extremely crowded. The prisoner made 110 defence, further than declaring that she was innocent ; she called no witnesses.— Guilty-- Death. The prosecutor and Jury recommended the unfortunate creature to mercy, and she was taken out of Court in a swoon by ihe officers. TUESDAY.— Extensive Robbery by a Servant.— George Biggs, aged 18, and Richard Biggs, 22, ( brothers), were indicted for stealing £ 645, the pro- perty of Mr. Richardson, woollen- draper, of Ludgate- liitl, with whom George had lived as servant for three years. It appeared iu evidence that George was sent hy his master to felch the money, in order to take up a hill ; and 011 his return, passing through Austin- friars, he prettmded to have been met by three men, who struck him violently, anil deprived him of his money, viz. about £ 245 in Bank of Eng- land notes and 400 sovereigns. The improbability of this tale arose from the fact., that some part of the notes were traced 10 lltehard Biggs, his brother, who vvas ultimately taken into custody at a notorious house of resort for thieves iu Bedfordbury. The Re- corder, in summing up, observed that the offence, if committed. by the prisoners, did uot affect their lives, as no case bad been made out that the robbery took place in a dwelling- house ; therefore, if found guilty, lliey would only be liable to transportation. The Jury returned a verdict of Guilty againsi both the prisoners, who were instantly sentenced to seven ^ ears trans- portation beyond ihe seas Silver cannot be bought under 5s. and dollars are worth 4s. lOd. to 4s. lid. At present there is a considerable demand for exportation. A short time since, tbe Martello Tower, No. 29, situate at the mouth of Rye harbour, which cost more than £ 10,000, was sold by auction for little more than £ 200. Mr. Owen calculates that the quantity of manufactures, of ell sorts, at present produced by British work, with the aid of machines, is so great, that it would require, without the assistance c. f machinery, the labour of four hundred millions of workmen* HOUSE OF COMMONS— THURSDAY. Sir THOMAS LETHBRIDGE said, that no resolutions having yet heen brought forward that would afford any thing like adequate protection to the farmer, he should propose some of his own,— The House and the country, be added, must determine to go the length of really adequate protection, or nothing would he done.— ln the course of the evening, Sir Thomas laid the following resolutions before the House .— That if is expedient, for the protection of the Agri- culture of the United Kingdom against foreign competition, that the following Rate of Duties shall be payable, and paid, on the Import of any production of foreign countries similar to those of our own soil; and that, subject to such Rates and i) utie-, the Import of all such productions shall, whenever the Ports shall open under the present law, thereafter remain free for the import of all such productions, viz: — • it Wh Meal Floor Rye Oafs Pease Beans B ,. 40s.

Sir THOMAS LETHBRIDGE, in presenting an agri- cultural petition, expressed his objection to the transactions between the Bank and Government, and to the establishment of Charter Banks in the country. — Mr. GRENFELL, Mr. SMITH, and Mr. HOME ob- jected to the renewal of the Bank Charter on the con11 i t ions u n d e rstood. The CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER said, that the result of the Bank negotiation would soon he brought before the House, and they would see whether if was right to ratify it. He would not anticipate their decision ; but he must state, that he was now called upon to make provision for the circu- lating medium by the issue of country bank notes. He had felt great " difficulty in proposing the continu- ance of the circulation of one- pound notes. I he country had suffered enormously from the failures of country banks, and it was the duty ofthe House to prevent the recurrence of such evils in future. There were but two modes of doing this— one was the requiring of every person who circulated bank- notes a deposit of capital as a security, and the other was, on the establishment of country banks, the insisting of such a quantity of capital in the persons con cerned, as would be a protection against failure. In the banks of Scotland fhe capitals were such that they were able to answer all demands. For a century past only three hanks had stopped payment in Scot- land. Within the saijie period two hundred banks bad stopped payment til England". Mr. ELLICE objected to any extension of the charter; and Sir M. W. RIDLEY was of opinion tha there was at present no want of all the circulation requisite for necessary purposes, where there was sufficient security.— Tbe petition was then received. POSTMASTERS GENERAL. Lord NORMANBY made his second motion for the removal of one of the Noble Lords who held the office of Joint Postmaster General, and re- stated his former arguments to shew that two Lords were useless.— Mr. VANSJTTART said that the office was defended bv Ministers solely on the ground of utility. — Mr. BANKES and Sir J. SEBRIGHT supported the motion, and Mr. II. SUMNER opposed it. Mr. STUART WORTLEY and Mr. WILBERFORCE also spoke in sup- port of, and the Marquis of LONDONDERRY in oppo- sition to, the motion.— Upon a division taking place, the numbers were declared— in favour, 216— in objection, 201. Majority against Ministers, 15. HOUSE OF COMMONS- FRIDAY. His Majesty's answer to the address of the House, moved by Lord Normanby, was presented by ihe Marquis of LONDONDERRY. It states, that his Ma- jesty has heen graciously pleased that the salary of one of the Postmasters- General shall forthwith cease, and that he only postpones the actual abolition of the office until he shall have the opportunity of considering what permanent arrangement may be advisable for the conduct of the business of that department. The further consideration of the Report of the Agricultural Committee, which stood for this night, was fixed for Monday, with an understanding that it is then to be brought on peremptorily.— The Roman Catholic Peers Restoration bill was brought up, and read a first time. The sccond reading is fixed for Friday. The plan for converting the Five Millions of Naval and Military Pensions into Annuities, was made the subject ofsome further discussion, but the conditions of the proposed contract were not stated to the House, the bargain not being- yet completed.— Mr. HUME proposed, as an amendment to the resolutions of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, that the con- tract should be made by the Treasury, not with private individuals or companies, but with the Comniissiorers for liquidating the National Debt. The proposition was, however, opposed hy Ministers, aud rejected by the House. The numbers on the division were— for the amendment 56— against it 135— majority 79.— The original resolutions were « then carried. On the motion of Mr. GRENFELL, the correspond- ence between Government and the Bank, relative to the extension of the Charter, was ordered to be laid before the House. POSTSCRIPT, London, Monday Nighty Mat/ 6. IRELAND.— The accounts from Ireland to- day give a melancholy confirmation of all that has hitherto been related of the distress which prevails in parti- ular counties. The details from the couuty of Clare exhibit a picture of wretchedness which needs only to be know n to command relief.— A subscription has been opened at Gloucester, for the relief of the starv- ing Irish poor, and no doubt this example will he generally followed. \_ From our Private Correspondent An express from Paris has arrived to- day. The French funds rose about one- half per cent, on Satur- day, in consequence of the arrival of a courier from Vienna with favourable political intelligence respect- ing Turkey. Five per cents left off at 88f. 20c. At the Stock Exchange, business opened ex- tremely flat this morning; but in consequence of a notion having been current that the Bank intend to take the. whole of the contract for the half- pay allow- ances, Consols for the Account rose nearly 3- 4( lis per cent. Should that be the case, the pressure on the money market likely to arise from the measure will now be done away with. The following are the • including prices :— Consols 78|.— Reduced 78.— Consols for Account 79^.- 4 per Cent. 94 § .-— 5 per Cent. 1021. HOUSE OF LORDS- MONDAY. Earl GREY alluded to the notice ofa motion which he had given in reference to the Distress of Agricul- ture, and said he should postpone it until the pro- ceedings on the same subject, now before the other House, should come regularly before their Lordships. His Lordship condemned the measures proposed by Ministers as inefficient. The Earl of LIVERPOOL defended the course adopted by Ministers, and said, that when the proper period arrived, he should be ready to meet the Noble Lord in argument on the measures to which he had U C" HOUSE OF COMMONS- MONDAY. A Petition was presented from the Synod of Ross against admitting Catholic Peers into Parliament. Petitions were presented against Mr. Wallace's proposed bill for altering the Navigation Laws.— Several Members spoke against the projected mea- sure, as calculated to throw all the advantages of commerce into the hands of foreigners; and they 3tated their determination of opposing the progress ofthe Bill. Sir T. LETIIBRIDGE presented a petition from Somersetshire, setting forth the Agricultural Distress, and praying for relief by a high protecting duly. AGRICULTURAL REPORT. Lord LONDONDERRY moved the order of the day for going into the Committee on the Agricultural Report. Mr. ELLICE opposed the Speaker's leaving fhe chair. He protested in toto against the reconsider- ation of the Report. He was convinced the measures now proposed would afford no relief. It was impos- sible, he thought, for any parliamentary measure to raise the price of corn for a continuance. Wheat was at present 50 per cent higher in this country than in auy other, and the quartern loaf in London was now double what it was at present in Paris. He would now ask what price would satisfy the growers? Wheat was now 55s. . Would that satisfy them? They would say no !— they could not pay the taxes at that price! He would go wilh them in reducing taxes, but not in raising the price of produce, so as to ruin our manufacturing interests. The price of corn could not get above the price of 1791, unless a new war or scarcity could arise; but all the propo- sitions before the House went much further. In 1700 the currency was regulated, and wheat fell to 35s. Such had been the effect at present by the depreciation of our currency : com rose in price by the return to cash payments. This was proved by the depreciation of the currency from 16S8 to 1699. The guinea then sold for 30s. and corn rose from 35s. to 65s. The lion. gent, proceeded to contend that the difficulties ofthe country arose from the attempt to restore metallic circulation at the time our paper currency was ut its height.— Left sitting. WALES.

LONDON— SATURDAY. On Thursday, advices so late as to the 14th ult. were brought from Vienna. It is stated by them that an official communication had been made from St. Petersburgh to the Court of Vienna, indicating on the part of the Emperor the most pacific sentiments, and a perfect acquiescence in the proposals submitted to him by the mediating powers, for the purpose of preserving the peace of Europe. Messengers, it is added, were immedi- ately dispatched by the Austrian Government to convey the agreeable intelligence to the different Courts of Europe which have taken an interest in the negociations ; and it is believed that the matters in dispute will be referred to Congress. The Prince of Denmark is said to be on his way to pay a visit to this country, with his Princess and a numerous retinue. One of the Royal yachts proceeds to Calais in a few days, for the purpose of conveying his Royal Highness and suite to Dover. The new Russian Tariff has been received by several mercantile houses in London, and it ap- pears that almost every article of British manufac- ture is absolutely prohibited.

' Fhe matters submitted to the Proprietors were— the extension of the charter for ten years, from 1833 to 1843; the withdrawing of the clause respecting Six Partners iu banking establishments ( except within sixty- five miles of London); and the late loans to Government, mentioned by the Marquis of Lon- donderry iu tbe House of Commons. Tbe whole of the propositions met with the unanimous approbation of the meeting.— Nothing occurred relative to the question of discounts. The Dublin papers of the 2d instant contain some further details of the distressed state of the peasantry in the south- west of Ireland.— A Society has been formed for their relief, under the manage- ment of the Marquis of Conyngham, the Earls of Glengall and Blesington, and other Noblemen and Gentlemen possessing property in Ireland, now resident in London ; and a meeting will be held at the City of Lbndon Tavern on Tuesday, for a general subscription for the same benevolent pur- pose.

BOXING.— A sharp holiday battle, was recently fought at Battle, in Sussex, between a blacksmith, called Shropshire John, and John the horsekeeper, which produced 28 rounds, and lasted 1 hour and 20 minutes, when the honour of the victory fell to the lot of the " proud Salopian." A motion for a Petition against the Catholic Claims was lately negatived, in the Board of Aldermen of Dublin, by u majority of three. Duel between the Duke of Buckingham and the Duke of Bedford. A meeting took place on Thursday in Kensington Gardens, between the Dukes. of Bedford and Buck- ingham, accompanied, the first by Lord Lynedoch and the latter by Sir VV. VV. Wynn. Both parties fired together, at the distance of 12 paccs, on a word given, but without effect ; when the Duke of Buckingham observing that the Duke of Bedford fired into the air, advanced to his Grace, and remarking, that for that reason the thing could go no further, said, u My Lord Duke, you are the last man 1 wish to quarrel with ; but you must he aware lhat a public man's life is not worth preserving, unless with honour." Upon which the Duke of Bedford declared, " Upon his honour, that he meant no personal offence to the Duke of Buckingham, nor to impute to him any bad or corrupt motive whatever." The parties then shook hands, and the whole business was terminated most satisfactorily. The affair is said to have originated in the following observations delivered by the Duke of Bedford, at the late county of Bedford Meeting : " He would now advert fo another transaction, which he was almost ashamed to mention ; he :> llmled to a great borough- proprietor, now a Noble Duke, late a Noble Marquis, whose services, and the ser- vices of whose adherents in Parliament, had been purchased by Government — had been purchased by conferring high offices on those adherents. It was an odious task to mention these circumstances, but he introduced them for the purpose of asking whether, if a Reform had been effected in Parliament, such transactions could possibly happen ? The Noble Duke's family and connections were, of course, sent hack to their Constituents, when they accepted of place ; because, by the Act of Parliament, it was provided, that when a Member of the House of Commons took an office under Government, lie must return to his Constituents to know whether they would or would not re- elcct him. But how were the individuals in question sent buck ? They were not sent back to fhe people of England— they were not sent back to those who were free to choose or to reject them— 11.9, they were sent back to the borough proprietor— to iheir own patron, to the person who had engaged iu. ihe corrupt traffic— who had, in fact, made the bargain with Ministers. He would ngain ask, could such a circumstance possibly occur, if a Reform were effected 111 the Commons House of Parliament ?" The Duke of Buckingham very naturally took umbrage at these observations, and personally demanded that his Grace of Bedford should retract them as publicly as they had been promulgated. The Noble Duke peremptorily refused to accede to this demand, and a challenge was tbe conse- qucnce* At half- past seven o'clock in the morning, the Duke of Bedford left his honse in St. James's- square in a private carriage, accompanied by Lord Lynedoch, a;; d drove directly to Kensington Gar- dens, where the Puke of Buckingham arrived about the same time, at a retired spot previously agreed upon, and attended by Sir Watkin Williams Wynn. A chirurgical professor, of eminence, it is said, was also in attendance upon either party. The observations of the Duke of Bedford, above quoted, have been commented upon as a singular specimen of the forgetfulness and obliquity ( not to say humbug) of party- men— yearly the whole of the immense possessions of the Bedford Family having been bestowed on them by the Crown'; and the Noble Duke himself being the patron of Tavistock and other close ( rotten) boroughs!

CHESHIRE COUNTY MEETING.— In pursu- ance of a Requisition ( to which 187 signatures wci'e attached), C. Wicksted, Esq. High Sheriff of Cheshire, has appointed " a meeting of the nobility, gentry, clergy, and freeholders, and of the owners and occupiers of land, and all others directly con- nected with tbe agriculture of that county, being householders thereof, or inhabitants usually resid- ing therein," to be holden at Northwich, 011 the 20th instant.— As Ministers have brought forward a proposition for the remission of £ 2,200,000 of taxes, vve trust the Cheshire Meeting will forcibly point out the Salt Tax as one of those impostMbe annihilation of which will most materially benefit tbe Agriculturists of all classes throughout the kingdom: to Cheshire, Shropshire, and other dairy counties, the remission of this tax will more especially be felt as a relief to the farmer, inde- pendently of the great assistance which will thus be also given to the agricultural labourer, in a great proportion of whose food the consumption of salt is extensive and indispensable. 9 6 3 o 3 10 5 O 4 O ) ' 67 tn = 4,1 9i\ 1 - 20 < A > 00 " > E5 2 22 Sil 17 II iJ Tbe Quarter of eight Win- chesterBush- el3, or25( iQls.

It is otsr unpleasant duty to state that this town and neighbourhood continue in an unsettled state, from great numbers of the colliers still refusing to return to their work; and their apparent determi- nation to prevent others from doing so. On Monday evening many hundreds were collected together at Mr. J. T. Fereday's, Monmorc Green Colliery, for the purpose, as it was reported, of ducking those men who had been at work, upon their coming up from the pits; when, we hear, it was deemed necessary to call out a military and civil force from Bilston for their protection; one or two shots were fired, and a man named Roberts, we regret to state, was severely if not mortally wounded.— Wolverhampton Chronicle, May 1. To the foregoing account ( says the Birmingham Gazette of Monday last) we have to add, that John Robson ( not Roberts), the man who was shot, died on Wednesday night. An inquest was assembled, on view of the body, on Friday, and the proceedings were on Saturday evening adjourned until Friday next.— Seven men were apprehended, on Magistrates* warrants, on Thursday, for assault- ing colliers who were working, by ducking and otherwise ill- treating them, five of whom have since been committed to Stafford gaol. A detach- ment of the Staffordshire yeomanry left Wolver- hampton early on Saturday morning, and succeeded in securing several men who had been recognized as active in assaulting colliers attempting to pur- sue their work ; six of them were conveyed to Stafford on the same day, in addition to those Gold and Silver Coinage. The following very curious and authentic details of the forms observed in ascertaining- the purity of our Gold and Silver Coin, will be perused with great interest by a large portion of our readers, to whom the particulars of this ancient practice can- not be familiar:— TRIAL OF THE PIX. Oil Saturday, the 27th of April, the Right Honour- able the Lord Chancellor, attended bv four other of his Majesty's Honourable Privy Council, viz Lord Maryborough, Master of tbe Mint, Lord Stowell, Lord Harrowby, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, assembled in the Duchy of Lancaster Court, at West- minster, to swear in a Jury of Goldsmiths, for the purpose of their examining into the quality of the gold and silver coin made between May 1818, and Dec. 1821, during which period tbe largest amount of gold money was coined that is upon record iu this country, the sum being no less than £ 10,473,249, whicb, added to the silver coined within the same short period, makes a total of upwards of thirteen million pounds sterling. The Jury were selected from the Worshipful Com- pany of Goldsmiths, and was. composed of tbe follow- ing gentlemen :— Robert Makepeace, Esq. Foreman; William Newcoinbe, Esq. John Harker, Esq. Thomas Hayter, Esq. John Brogden, Esq. Edmund Rundell, Esq Samuel Ilaynes, Esq. John Robinson, Esq. Sam. Thomas, Esq. Richard Brook, Esq. William Bate- man, Esq. Philip Gilbert, Esq. John G.

EMIGRATION F(> THE CONTINENT. Petitions to both Houses of Parliament are in course of Signature in Bath praying the Legislature to Tax the Property and Income of Absentees, and also to withhold the pay of all Officers of the Army and NaVy, as well as' of all Pensioners, Placemen", and public Annuitants, not resident within the kingdom. EUHGITATFON TO TIF F. CONTINENT.— A writer in the Bath Herald says — u To what extent this evil has reached, it is perhaps impossible exactly to tell; but, if we set d » vvn the number of Kngli> b individu- als, of rank and property, at this time in some part ofthe French terrilory, at thirty thousand^ we. shall not probably be far trom the truth. They are nol, however, in the amount of loss occasioned to ibis country, to be reckoned numerically only.— these thirty thousand are$ from the impulse given to every de pari men t of society, by the diffusion of ihei'r wealth, the very crean'i of our population ; and spending, wherever they are, from two hundred to twenty thousand pounds a year, respectively ; and thus, in their absence, withdrawing several millions annually from circulation, to the impoverishment of our trade uud manufactures— the desertion of our houses in town and country— and the diminution of our revenue. But ibis is not the worst: the immense sums thus annually drawn from this country, are not merely a loss to ourselves, hut go to enrich our natural enemy, by the great additional demand for every article of production, and the augmentation of the revenue of France, by the payment of direct rind indirect laxes. A man must be lost to every sense, of patriotism, ami ( looking at the licentious morals of France) to morality also, who can thus expatriate himself, and endanger his family.— The motives which lead lo this new species of emigration, will still less hear inspection. Pride, or sensuality, or both, will he the ruling passion in almost everv instance. The man who has spent, his £ 20,000 a year, ill brooks the necessity which the change of times imposes on him of reducing his expenditure to ten : his pride is wounded in the idea of appear- ing in a lower scale of living, before those who bave witnessed his former extravagance; and, to save himself this niortifieatioiN, lie goes to hide himself in a foreign country. The Bon Vivants with whom his belly is his god, and in wfiose estimation the claims of country and of kindred go for nothing, betakes him just where he can get Ibe most to eat and drink for his money. But are such unworthy reasons to be held in respect by the English nation ? And are. these two classes of people, more numerous perhaps in England than in any other country, to be privi- leged to draw their revenues from one country, which preserves their integrity and security, to spend them in another, which," for 800 years* has been on tbe watch to appropriate them to herself; and which could not be better pleased, or more be- nefitted, than by this gratuitous infusion of wealth ?" a kind of advanced guard, and should precede tbe | quiries lead you to a contrary conclusion, you will main body about a mile, to prevent the breaking up i report accordingly, for before the Crown will grant the roads. i the release of the Master of tbe Mint, your coii- The road in this part winds along a narrow valley, j sciences must be satisfied that the cash of the present with an immense mountain almost perpendicular on j day is equal in purity to British cash in the best of the right hand, at the foot of which runs the river on i British times. the left.

A postboy, a man of colour, nicknamed Tippoo Saib, lately in the employ of Mr. Newman, of Swallow street, undertook, for a trifling wager, to chew and swallow a tumbler glass, which lie did, but was shortly after taken ill, and died in the most excruciating pain. A head of Brocoli was. cut, last week, at White- lackington, which measured four feet in circum- ference. All accounts from Yorkshire, particularly from Huddersfield, agree that the manufacturers were never better off, or in fuller employ; and that every thing there is quiet, and no discontent appears. Considerable orders for arms bave been recently received at Birmingham, from Russia. Sir Geo.

The successor to Mr. Bignall is not yet named. whole corps. The Riot Act was then read by the Rev. J. B. Davies. but produced no effect, and the impracticability of proceeding without a greater and different species of force became evident ; the number of tbe assailants continually increased, many of whom concealed themselves in tbe thicket with which the hill was for the most part covered. Afler waiting three hours, the Scots Greys made their appearance at the top of the very high hill in rear of llie rioters, and under the admirable directions of Lieut. Lloyd the woods and quarries were com- pletely cleared. At Larnithdell, however, about two miles above, the mob came down, having obstructed tbe convoy by tearing up the roads and running several waggons across them. They made a desperate attack on this part ofthe convoy, antl a most confused scene of riot and disorder ensued, and Mr. Frere, tbe Magistrate, was knocked off his horse. The Greys fired a volley over the heads of tbe rioters, but chieflv used their swords, and several wounds were inflicted ; but great credit is due for their forbearance. The convoy- was at length able to proceed, but slowly, the road being torn up in fifty places, and large pieces of timber being thrown across before the advanced guard could prevent it. When they had proceeded about three miles further another regular attack was made by pouring down torrents of stones from the steep bill on the right. Half the Greys were ordered to dismount, and with Lieut. Lloyd, who gallantly shared the fatigue wilh his men, at their head, scaled ihe heights. The mob came firmly & resolutely down, facing the troops, and rolling down immense frag- ments of rock amongst tbem ; a sort of engagement ensued; but the assailants, being unprovided with fire- arms, fled on the first volley from the soldiers. One man fell, and several were wounded, but from the nature of the country tliey were borne away by their comrades. We have nol learnt the result of the day's proceed- ings, after the rioters were thus dispersed; but we do not expect they could again rally, as tbe country oil the right became more open, and the convoy was sufficiently protected by the river on the left. We have been favoured with the following more recent, account, by a Correspondent in another dis- trict.— Oh Thursday last, the Scots Greys marched | from Abergavenny to Ebbw- Vale, in order to co- ) operate with the Chepstow Yeomanry, who marched j from Usk to Crwmlin- bridge, to escort a number of coal waggons from ihe Cwm Collieries to the Iron Works of Messrs. Harford, and Co. at Pen- y- Caer. Soon after the arrival of the Greys, intelligence was brought by Mr. Moggridge, junior, that the colliers had occupied a cliff covered with underwood, in which they concealed themselves, covering a ravine through. which the rail- road passed, and whence they rolled down masses of rock on the road below ! The Greys immediately left Ebbw, and ascending the mountain to the left, about two miles from the spot where the colliers were posted, made a circuit of three miles to get iu their rear; and they were dis- lodged by a party of dismounted Greys acting as Carbineers, under Lieut. Lloyd. The waggons then passed the defile; but, at a narrow pass near the foundry, were again obstructed by an immense mul- titude, by whom tbe Magistrates were assailed with stones and brick- bats, and where the Greys were obliged to have recourse to their fire- arms to dis- perse the rioters, which was done without very serious injury, some few of the rioters having been wounded; and Mr. Frere, one of the Magistrates, here received some severe blows from the bludgeon of a ruffian, whilst stooping down to bitch a horse to a tram- waggon. Tbe dispersed rioters again as- sembled about two miles off, on tbe edge of a hill ; from whence, after a brisk firing-, they were again dislodged ; and here, it is imagined, several rioters were wounded. Froin this spot, Lieut. Lloyd marched for three miles along the summit of the hills, and protected the convoy, which reached Ebbw- Vale in safety soon after nine o'clock. The Chepstow Cavalry were on horseback from six in the morning till nine at night; and the Greys did not reach their quarters at Abergavenny, which they left at 7 in the morning, till half- past one on Friday morning— VVe have, however, much pleasure in stating, that a general expectation was entertained that tbe greater part of the misguided men intended returning to their work on Monday ( the 6th inst.)

" You will now commence your important pro- ceedings, nnd will, no doubt, discharge yourduly to both the King and his people " The Jury then proceeded to the rooms purposely prepared for their reception in Ibe Exchequer, anil it may not be uninteresting to our readers to be in- formed of the process used in this most important in- quiry, Ihe more so, as ihis is the largest coinage performed in this or any other country, within the same period of time. The practice of bis Ma jesty's Mint, and which has existeil from time immemorial, is to divide ils opera, lions into divisions of fifteen pounds troy weight of gold, which fifteen pounds weight of gold is called a " Journey." One sovereign is then taken from each journey or fifteen pounds weight so coined, and is carefully wrapped in pap'T, sealed by Ihree of the principal officers of the Mint, and deposited in tbe pix, which bas also three locks, the paper being endorsed with the date of its delivery. There have heen instances within the period of this inquiry, where upwards of 200 journies bave heen delivered in one day, and consequently upwards of 200 sovereigns put in one packet ttto the pix or box, tbey bciug synonymous terms. From what has been stated, the number of sovereigns put into tbe pix, ure consequently the same as Ihe number of journies, or fifteen pounds weight coined, and in the preseut inquiry, the number nf sovereigos in tbe pix was 14,852, the same being representative of the like number of journies of 15 pounds weight of gold coined into sovereigns. The Jury being assembled, the Principal Officers of his Majesty's Mint opened the box, aud, with great solemnity, delivered It into the custody of Ibe Jury, who instantly took an account of, and opened, every parcel contained therein, taking oue sovereign front each paper. Those so taken were then, in tbe presence of tbe Jury, melted into two ingots, from whence small pieces were cut for the purpose of assaying, or undergoing a chymical decomposition, In order lo ascertain the proportion of pure gold, as well as of alloy, in any given quantity. At the same time was produced, by the proper Officer of his Majesty's Exchequer, a " trial pieceof gold," which was there deposited iu October, 1688, ns of lite true standard nf twenty- two parts gold and two pa- Is alloy. This piece bears the guinea im- pression of King James ihe Second, ou one of its corners; it was of considerable weight when first deposited, bii't is now much reduced in size, from the number of nssay pieces taken from it by the pix juries which bave been successively held within the last hundred and thirty- four years. From litis trial piece, as from Ihe ingots of melted sovereigns, two small assay pieces tire cut, and being of equul weight with tbe pieces cut from the sove" reigns, they are separately subjected to ihe power of fire and of acids, for the purpose of destroying every p trtide r. fnlloy. and producing putely fine gold. The fine or pure gold being produced, il is obvious that in the most delicate balance, the weight ol the finp gold produced front the sovereigns, should ex- actly agree with the weight of tbe fine gold produced front the Exchequer trial piece. The practical knowledge of the leading Officers of his Majesty's Mint, combined with iheir pre eminent scientific attainments, are known and confessed by every Mint in Europe. Yet witb conscious integrity, added to those qualities, it may be reasonably sup- posed, that the moment in which tbe assay piece taken front thecoin is opposed in tbe opposite balance, to that taken from the trial piece, is lo them a mo- ment, if not ofanxiely, at least of eager expectation. lu the present inquiry, the nicest balance, or scale, could discover no difference, und the points in the centre of the beam came in contact as the puints of two fine needles, thereby enabling the Jury to return a verdict, that the coin was as good as till' King bad ordained, and the Right Honourable the Master of tbe Mint undertaken, that it shonld he. These facts and observations apply, with slight antl unimportant variations, to the silver as tothe gold coin. These operations etnploved the Jury from nine in ihe morning till five in Ihe evening, when they re- turned front the Exchequer to Goldsmith's Hall, the Lord Chancellor hating very kindly condescended to receive their verdict at ihe latter place : afler which his Lordship, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Lord Maryborough, Master of the Mint, Lord Harrowby, and l. ord Stowell, honoured Ihe Wardens of the Company and Jury with their company at dinner, to HORSE FAIR.— At Lincoln horse fair (" see ith pagej valuable horses were rather scarce, and fetch- ed very high prices ; one dealer on Monday actually paid £ fi()() for four.— Those of the nag kind sold a good deal better than formerly.

A pedestrian feat of a very laborious and novel kind was performed at Liverpool during Monday, Tuesday, ap. d Wednesday of last week. A man named Townshend, of Bristol, liad undertaken, on a vt ager of 30 lo 20 pounds, to walk backwards 38 miles in twelve hours of each day, for three days successively. This task he accomplished ou Wed. nesday evening, amidst the acclamations of a crowd of spectators, tin Monday he completed the 38 miles in tivelve minutes less than the time 011 Tuesday in eleven, and 011 Wednesday in ten and a half. Tlie ground he walked over was from Yeoman's, Regent road, to BreckeH's, at Adam- son's mill, a length of 726 yards. His dress was a shirt, drawers, worsted stockings, strong quarter boots, anil paper cap.

Rumc.—' The new style uf riding with a LOWG STIRRUP ( a la militaire) is believed to owe its origin to the peace, w hich has left our army olficers much time for the home service, ond hence their method uf riding- becoming frequently under notice, has gained a host of imitators.— The superiority of this over the old trig and firm mode is much doubted by many persons ; and the following is given as a proof that it is not the mode at all calculated - for riding to hounds:— Not long since an illustrious Duke, who frequently hunts iu Hampshire, with tbe hounds of Sir John Cope and Mr. Chute; aiid who, it is not to be wondered at, rides altogether like a military moo, met with a practical illustration of the beauty ofa li/ ilit. scat. liis Grace rides boldly over a country, aud is not to be easily checked.

LUDLOW NEW FAIR, on the 1st inst. was frnm; rously attended, and the various descriptions of stock sold well compared with the late prices. — Mr. Henry Wellings, in whom the establishment of the Fair originated, was carried through all tbe principal streets of the town, in a chair decorated • w ith ribbons and laurel, attended by a procession of the bailiffs, the, several trades,, the free- school children, & c. ; tbe procession was interspersed witb banners, and headed by the Ludlow band. BRIDGNORTH FAIR was held the same day; and here we regret to say the pickpockets were very successful. Many persons were rabbed, one of whom, Mr. S. Hume, butcher, of Cheadie, Staf- fordshire, was plundered of upwards of £ 150. HORSE FAIRS.— At the late Stourbridge Horse Fair, Anderson, of Lamb's Conduit- street, London, purchased 63 horses, which it was supposed cost bim upwards of £ 5000. Between 3000 and 4000 horses were sold; most of them at high prices; still many capital ones remained undisposed of. The owner of one Irish horse refused 300 guineas for him: many Irish hunters soid at from 100 to 150 guineas. Cobs were in great request, and went at high prices. Machine horses also were in great demand. This fair, which boasts of having., perhaps, as many good horses as any in England, is held on the 29th March, but the dealers attend a week previous, and all the business among the good horses is nearly done by tbat day in the stables of innkeepers. A singular custom prevails here, that every person selling a horse of this description always buys a white leather head collar, a small rug, and a sircingle, for the purchaser to take the horse away with. Lincoln Horse Fair, on the 22d of April, was crowded with sellers and buyers. Some fine cattle were exhibited, and prices were on tbe advance. Three horses sold for 000 guineas.

SCARCITY IN IRELAND. On ihe Marquis of LONDONDERRY moving the order ofthe day for the further consideration of the Report of ti. e Committee on Agricultural Distress, Sir EDWARD O'BRIEN rose to call the attention of the House to the dreadful situation of the poor of Ireland, particularly iu the county of Clare. In con- sequence of the wetness of the season when the. po- tatoe crop was dug up, most of them had since rotted, so that the supply was insufficient for the po- pulation. In one quarter of the country, 150,000 people were without adequate food or the means of obtaining it. The former distresses of Ireland were nothing in comparison of what threatened it now, because in former times the farmers were enabled to assist the distressed peasantry, whereas they were now themselves in the greatest distress, from the re dnotion in prices, and other consequences of the recent changes in agricultural demand. In conse- quence of the failure of the potatoes, oatmeal had greatly risen in price, and as this was the only other resource of the poor for food, he trusted some mea- sures would be immediately adopted by the Govern- ment to relieve the Irish peasantry. Mr. GOULBURN said the matter was under the most, serious attention of the Irish Government, who had first inquired into the extent of the existing distress, next how far the local gentry could contribute to mitigate it, and then how far the Government could lend its aid in furtherance of the endeavours of those to whom the peasantry more immediately looked for protection. Relief of the Country* AGRICULTURAL REPORT. The Marquis of LONDONDERRY hoped Gentlemen would do him the justice to believe, that no person felt more sincerely or more acutely the distresses under which the country laboured thau he did ; but still he. felt satisfaction in stating, that, with the ex- ception of the Agricultural Classes, the country was in a prosperous state; certainly tlje manufacturing interests were in a state of progressive prosperity. It was also matter of congratulation and pleasure, that not only the last, quarter's revenue had increased At the recent Ludlow Quarter Sessions, Prosser was convicted of feloniously . steal in, quantity of drapery goods from a travelling Irish- man, and sentenced to be transported for 14 years. FOOTPAD ROBUERIES.— On the 26th ult. Mr. David Bomfray, of Stourton, Shropshire, was stopped at a place called T'he. Wood, on his return from Stourbridge, by two footpads, who robbed bim of a silver hunting watch and four £ I notes.— On the preceding night, Mr. James Fernyhongh was violently assaulted and lobbed, between Tit- tensor and Trentham, Staffordshire, by two foot pads, who, after injuring him so as to make him insensible, robbed him of two £ 20 notes and a shilling, and then threw him into a ditch. HUNTING.— A well- known veteran sportsman in the neighbourhood of Mansfield, and a constant fieldsman at Lord Middleton and Mr. Saville's Hunts, bas, this season, pursued bold reynard, on the same horse, not less than seventy- jive times, aud, on a fair statement, went cach meeting a distance of twelve miles to coter. This truly famous and favourite animal was not once bled, or Lad the slightest operation performed upon him during the whole season; and, remarkable as it may appear, throughout his arduous task lie never received the slightest injury or appeared the least distressed ; but, on the contrary, to the very last day in the field he maintained his undaunted spirits, gloriously trinmphii;;; in the blithe echo, " Hark forward, tally- ho, gone away!" This extraordinary feat stands unprecedented in the annals of sporting history. Wright, the pedestrian, completed his task of walk ing 1000 miles in 1000 hours, on Wednesday last, at twelve o'clock. To prevent the possibility of dispute, be walked a mile in the succeeding hour. An officer of the 7th Dragoons won £ 400 on the occasion, out of which he has presented tbe pedestrian with £ 50. Wright walked his last mile in nine minutes. Capt. B.

These Childers breed can be readily traced in their descent from the Barley Arabian, imported into this country from Aleppo by this spirited merchant, early in the reign of Queen Anne, and which came over to England certificated with all the ceremony due to the very best blood of the Desert. On the side of his dam hc was descended of Spiletta, got by Regulus, which was the son of the Godolphin Arabian. On the death of the Duke of Cumberland, bis stud in Sussex was sold off; and the Eclipse colt, then a yearling, was puichased by a sporting Smiih- field salesman, for the sum oi' 75 guineas. An incident attended his sale which is worth relating, as his life might have been in other hands of per- haps quite another description, and with none of that splendor which followed bim, so much de- pends upon the characters of men as well as of the things themselves. Mr. Wildman ( for tbat was tbe name of this SmithfieM amateur), having the young colt, in view, arrived at the place of sale some minutes after the auction had commenced, and the Eclipse colt, being placed among the eaily lots, had been actually knocked down for 70 gui- neas, and sold. This spirited lover of the sport was not, however, to be daunted by this untoward circumstance from an attempt to gain him; and, referring immediately to his stop watch, of trusty workmanship, be declared in the face of the com pany and of the auctioneer, that the time the bills had stated for the commencement of the sale had not then arrived, and insisted boldly that every lot should be put up again. The auctioneer, well knowing the stiffness of his man, nnd unable to disprove the allegation, thought proper to comply; and to save the trouble and time of tbe company, it. was finally agreed that sucb hits as hc required should be put u;> again ; and Eclipse was once more put up, and a second time knocked down at the sum of 75 guineas, being- an advauce of five guineas on his former sale. This remarkable horse was also not without portentous events on the day of his birth, for he was foaled on the very day of - he great eclipse of tbe sun, on the 1st of April, 1761, and hence he very naturally acquired his name, which from this accidental circumstance is now become in our language almost synonymous to swiftness and speed; as, coaches, ships, steamboats, aud ail other sorts of vehicles, having any distinguishing pretensions to velocity, are all now called Eclipses, arising out of this casual circumstance. After the period of his sale, he was kept chiefly in tbe neighbourhood of Epsom ; and, from some cause or olher not now exactly known, was not brought into public notice till he had attained his fifth year, which, no question, was attended with many advantages to his general strength aud the state of his feet; and, for the first time, he was started on the scented turf of Epsom Downs, on May 3, 1769 : he was matched against some re- puted clever horses ; Gower, Chance, Trial, and Plume, were his opponents; and he distanced them every one, winning for his' owner a consi- derable sum of money. John Oakley had the honour of riding him on this occasion, and in general or perhaps always afterwards, and to whom it is said this generous animal was much attached ; but, although this jockey was deemed a skilful and powerful man, yet this brave animal did not require, they tell us, much of the aids of jockey- ship, or would permit in any way the use of the whip or spur, or much directing ; thc sole busi- ness of the rider was to keep his seat, and pull in, the rest was done by the horse. In a race that was cxpccted to be sharply contested at York, O'Kelly placed several persons across the line of the course, beyond the coming- in- post, in order that, if he broke away after winning., he might be stopt; but it was a needless precaution, for, afler ihe race was won, he seemed to understand it, and readily obeyed the rein. On this occasion at Epsom, they say, " hc runs pulled" the whole of the last mile with all the might of bis rider, yet he distanced the whole, notwithstanding; since, for certain obvious politic reasons, it was not desirable to his owner his pro- digious powers should be at once disclosed. It was after this race that Capt. O'Kelly pur- chased the half of him of Wildman for tbe sum of 450 guineas; and, after a subsequent race at Winchester, he purchased the remaining half for 110 guineas; yet, for all tliis, was he the cheapest horse ever sold in England, having by his valuable properties of one kind or other netted for master the prodigious sum, it is said, of £ 30,000. Among other bets on this race, one was made which was rather singular, by Dennis O'Kelly himself, " That he would undertake to place tbe horses ;" after the bet was made, hc was called upon to declare, and he said, " Eclipse first, tbe rest no where;" which was true, in a sporting sense, for a horse distanced might be said to be no where, or in no place.* [ 7' o be concluded in our next.."] increase of between £ 200,000 aud £ 300,000 within the last three weeks; there was in fact a net in- crease of £ 90,000 a week for the last three weeks of the last month, lie still believed the distress of the country had in a great degree arisen from circum- stances which were beyond the reach of legislative interference. Circumstances had produced an over- supply in the market, aud until that supply regulated itself to the demand, it was impossible to expect that the distress could be fully relieved. Looking on the important question on which the House was to con- sider, in the light that he did, it naturally came under the following classes First, a measure connected with the state of the currency of the country— a measure connected with the public credit— aud a measure connected with the following question, namely, how far it would be advisable to advance a sum of money for the relief of the agricultural in- terest, on good and adequate security? He would state to the House . how Government stood with re- spect to each of those branches. On a former occasion he had thrown out a sug- gestion that" relief might in some degree be obtained by advancing money to parishes in order to mitigate, the pressure of the poor's rates ; he had stated the possible propriety of that measure, because its sim- plicity appeared" to reduce it to practicability; but lie had said that there were objections which naturally presented themselves to a measure of that nature, and upon the w hole it was his wish to leave the matter open for consideration and inquiry, iu order that thc sentiments of the country in general might be had with respect to it. He had now to state, that so many difficulties appeared connected with that mea- surei that His Majesty's Ministers did not mean to make any application to Parliament respecting it. There were other plans which appeared more deserving of consideration ; one was, the advantage likely to arise from the advance of money on the part of Government on British corn. If he bad thought that the measure, as some persons imagined, AOUUI have the effect of raising the price of corn, he begged explicitly to say, that he would not now propose it for the adoption of the House; but his impression was, that the measure was not one calculated to raise the price of corn, but was calculated to relieve the markets, whichjwere at present inundated with corn; the fair eonte* t between the buyer and the seller, which had existed, and which ulways ought to exist, did not exist at the present moment. At no period in the history of the country wasthesellerunder such disadvantage as at the present moment. He could not see the measure which he intended to pro- pose, as one calculated to raise the price of corn in an unnatural way, but to regulate in some degree the standard between the supply and the demand; and to protect the maikets from the effects of the inun- dation which at preseut poured in trpon and depressed them ; it was not to be considered a direct interfer- ence in tiie market by the Government; it left to in- dividuals the right and the power of acting on their own views of their own interests; for instance, if persons were led to expect higher prices at the close of ihe year, they would not accept of the proposed loan, subject as it would be to the payment of interest; but if higher prices were not expected during the year, the advance of money on their corn might be an advantage to the farmers— the measure, there fore, could not be held up as unsound, unnatural, or artificial. To this object it was his intention to pro- pose the appropriation of oue million of capital. There was one reason which recommended this measure to him— it was the general impression on the minds of the farmers that it was likely to benefit them. With respect to what had fallen from an Hon. Bart. Sir E. O'Brien), he must say, that the distresses * llis being hacked four to one at starting in this race, for his superiority, though endeavoured to be concealed, had got abroad among the turf people, and the manner this happened has been related as follows. Some persons engaged in the fancy were dispatched from London for the purpose of taking a sly peep at a private trial that was to be made between Eclipse and some other horses before his starting for the race; hut they arrived too late, for it was just over ; but an old woman, as it happened, was found near the spot toddling along, and of her they enquired if she had seen any of the trial: she told them, she did not much understand what they meant; but, if it was tiie two horses they were talking about that were running, she could tell them that white legs was a long way first, and that t'other, she was sure, run as fast as he could, would never over- take him. This was sufficient; tbey returned to town, and the owner was surprised, on his arrival, to find the betting so high in his favour; be, however, took the odds, aud won much money. ( S which unfortunately oppressed the people of the South of Ireland, had not escaped the attention of tbe Government. It was in the contemplation of Government to propose a vote for a loan of one million to be applied in forwarding public works for the employment of the population. It was now right to state, that Government had opened a negociation with the Bank of England, for an advance of four millions on Exchequer Bills, at the reduced interest of 3 per cent. He had already stated, that one million was to be advanced in aid of the public works, and another million to be advanced on British corn. The other two millions would be applied in payment of those holders of 5 per cent, stock who had dissented from the terms proposed by Government and this sum would of course find its way into circulation in the month of July next; and thus extend the general circulation by that amount. He would now beg leave to call the attention of tbe House to the question of circulation. The House was aware that the Act which intitled the Country Banks to issue notes under £ 5 would expire in the year 1825; if the Government would not interfere in the mean time, all the Bank paper of notes under 15 would be put out of circulation, and must be sup- plied bv metallic currency. It was known to the House that country bankers had already commenced withdrawing their notes from circulation in order to meet that event; and if the Bill which now regulated the circulation of country paper were suffered to expire, the Parliament, in his opinion, would bring the country to the state of augmenting most unne- cessarily the metallic currency. The time had come when Parliament were bound to decide on this im- portant question; and here he might state that, after tbe most mature consideration ou the part of Government, they were satisfied that it would be expedient and prudent to extend ihe duration of the. Bill respecting country banks, and to extend it for a considerable number of years. It was, therefore, his intention to propose, that that time should he extended to the. extent of the Charter of the Bank of England, which would expire in 1833. The fact was not to be disputed, that the country was suffering a severe pressure from the efforts which Parliament had made to accomplish the moral principle of arriving at a metallic standard ; and if lo that pressure which was so generally and so severely felt throughout the country, they added what would arise from the withdrawing of the small notes of country banks in circulation, they would sensibly add to the public embarrassments. It was the duty and the policy of Ministers to endeavour by all " safe means to facilitate banking operations; feeling it to be so, the Government opened a negociation wilh the Bank of England, to obtain from them a relaxation of so much of the Charter as to enable individuals to set up a Bank with more than six partners, that relaxation of the Charter not to extend to the sphere of the Bank's monopoly, he meant in and near London. But be- yond that limit it was proposed that the Bank of England should relinquish its monopoly with respect to all places 65 miles or more distant from London. It was intended to establish Banks in England on the joint stock principle of the Scotch Banks, which, though not chartered, vet carried on their transac- tions with great facility, and upheld their credit unshaken. With the exception of very few, the average number of partners in each Bank was be- tween fifty and sixty : so perfectly safe was the principle of these Banks, that, although in England hazard and loss had been experienced, there was not for a period of one hundred and twenty years, an instance of a Bank failing in Scotland. As an in- ducement to the Bank of England to relinquish the monopoly which it at present possessed, it Was thought advisable on the part of Government to grant an extension of iis Charter for a period of ten years. And here he would say, that to tbe uncompromis- ing spirit and tbe wisdom of Parliament, tlie country was indebted for the improved state of public credit. By a reduction in the estimates of not less thau two millions, aud hy establishing an effective surplus of 5 millions even' over aud above the extraordinary charges of the present year, they established the public credit of the country on the most solid basis, and enabled the Government lo propose, without embarrassment or danger, measures essential for the public relief. The Government had thus been enabled to complete, without inconvenience, the most gigantic plan of finance ever attempted— the paying off the 5 per cents.; thus saving to the country one million three hundred thousand a year, and establishing a precedent, by which further reductions of interest may be made wilb facility ou the public debt, ou a sound principle. He now came to another proposition, the details of which would be brought forward by his Right Hon. Friend ( the Chancellor of the Exchequer), on Wed- nesday or Friday next, for the special consideration of the House— a measure which, but for the stability which Parliament had given to the public credit and finances of the country, could never have heen pro- posed. This measure was framed with a view to relieve a large portion of the debt of the country, namely, the dead expense or charge, as it was called, of our warlike establishment, composed of the officers' pensions, retired allowances, the pensions of officers' widows, and the half pay under the heads of the navy, army, and ordnance, being at present about £ 5,000,000. This was the general amount, though the liberality of Parliament to meritorious individuals, occasionally added some further charge to the annual amount. This portion of annual charge stood at present iu a very inconvenient rela- tion to the general debt of the country, for although a regular charge, subject only to the obvious fluctu- ations, yet it always appeared as if so much was annually added to the estimates of the year. It was a charge, growing out ofa war perfectly unexampled in history, and one which, it was to be hoped, would never occur again— growing out of a struggle for our own preservation, and for the preservation of the world. 1' he expense on this great head would cer- tainly diminish in some degrece every year, but it must be calculated that about 5 millions must for some years remain a dead weight on the nation unless some mode different to the present were adopted. It could not, according to calculation, be less than 45 years before this charge, in its present mode of operation, would be reduced to £ 300,000 a year; but taking the interest of money at 4 per cent, it was conceived that an offer from Government of a fixed annuity of about £ 2,800,000 for 45 years would be contracted for, as equivalent to the various payments which are estimated to become due on account of the present receivers of half- pay, pen- sions, & e. within the same period, and which the contractors for the above annuity would be bound to guarantee to pay. Thus, if this plan were adopted, a certain expense of £ 2,800,000 per annum for half- pay, pensions, & c. would be entailed upon the country for 45 years; but then there would be an immediate reduction of £ 2,200,000, most of which sum might be applied to the immediate reduction of taxation, so much called for in the present exigency. Government, therefore, would propose the adoption of this measure, and that £ 1,800,000 should be ap- plied in reducing taxes. Tbe remaining surplus of £ 400,000 would form a fund to meet the subsequent expenses which would arise from the half- pay of future retiring officers, widows' pensions, See. which of course could not be contracted for in any measure involving the present half- pay, pensions, & c. This reserve of £ 400,000 was proposed to be continued until the present Sinking Fund of 5 millions operat- ing at compound interest, shall equal one per cent, upon the unredeemed capital of the public funded debt, and which it may be expected to do in less than ten years from the present time; and if from this period, the Sinking Fund, which will then amount to more than seven millions per annum, shall be applied to the extinction of the debt, the public may look not only to an ample provision for the growing charge of those new pensions, & c. but also, iu a very short time afterwards, to a considerable relief of the then burdens of the country, by the annual remission of taxes equal to the interest of debt annually redeemed by the application of tiie Sinking Fund. He trusted that Hon. Members would not mislead the public mind by indulging in speculations upon the description of taxes which it might be proposed now to reduce. God forbid that be should delude the country by stating that the reduction of £ 1,800,000 of taxes could be of itself an effectual relief lo the distresses under which it laboured. It might be a relief to the consumer, but to him only in the character of consumer. It would, however, afford the country some relief from the pressure occasioned by the late war, and would be a sober, sensible, and rational step, iu alleviating the feelings of the country, and in restoring ihe condition of the country to its true and constitutional tone. Except through the plan just proposed, no effectual relief could be granted. . But if Parliament should realise this measure in the course of the present Ses- sion, the Hon. and Learned Gentleman opposite ( Mr. Brougham) must admit that His Majesty's Ministers had shown a disposition to effect all practicable relief; for there had heen remitted ihe Horse Tax, amount- ing to £ 480,000, of the Malt Tax, 500,000, and the Reduction of Taxes now proposed was £ 1,800,000, making in all, a reduction of £ 3,780,000, in two years only, assuming that the Chancellor of the Ex- chequer should find himself enabled to remit to such amount as £ 1,800,000. If the Chancellor of the Exchequer's arrangement should be made, without even interfering with the Sinking Fund, and if the whole plan should be effected without any calculation upon a future increase of revenue, much had been done towards extending an effectual relief to { the country : aud here he could assure the House, that even when the arrangement should have been com- pleted, his Majesty's Government would not relax in iheir efforts for the attainment of similar ends. When the House reflected that at no very distant period the opportunity would offer for reducing the higher por- tions of the public debt, they need not despair of reducing the burdens of the country, in the succes- sion of a few years, to a very considerable degree. His Lordship then entered at great length on the question of importation of corn. He thought it was absolutely necessary that the country should be undeceived with respect to many of the false impres- sions and false notions that had gone abroad upon the subject; for never had he known a question which, in some quarters, had been more completely falsified. Gentlemen were of course aware, that the ports would necessarily open when the price of wheat was 80s. per quarter, and there had not been a second opinion in the Committee as tothe danger attendant on this fact. Such was the glut of corn abroad, and such might be the immensity of the supply poured into the kingdom in the interval before the next meeting of Parliament, if that supply were uncheck- ed and uncontrolled, that no man could describe nnd hardly imagine the extent of agricultural ruin that might be inflicted on the country, not merely for one, but perhaps for eight or ten subsequent years. He was not inclined to believe that the ports would open for three years to come; so adequate was the present principle of protection, that he thought nothing could open the ports but that species of dearth which would open them if the price limited were even 100s. The duty of the House was, how- ever, to look to contingencies; for though the appearance of the harvest was now very favourable, it might he blighted, and the same circumstances might again occur that were near opening the ports iu the last year. All were agreed as to the same element, of regulation and remedy for this possible and not improbable evil, and lhat remedy was the imposition of a duty ; but one class recommended a duty of 20s. to 40s. w hile another proposed a duty of from 20s. to 10s. and he himself was of the latter class. Another very important principle had been universally recognized, namely, that there was something in the present state of the corn market of the world which justified Parliament in imposing a duty on importation, applicable to the present state of things, but which would not be applicable when the market should return to a more natural state. It was enough to know lhat there was a glut of corn in every quarter of the world. Even Sweden, which had never before grown enough for her sub- sistence, was glutted with corn. But those who were for imposing a duty of 40s. on corn imported to this country forgot the charges to which the grain ; was subject before it reached the market. Looking at the more moderate duty, he was prepared to con- tend that it would be much more operative and powerful than some gentlemen were disposed to consider it. A great delusion had been practised upon the country to an injurious extent; it had been told that foreign corn, at all times, aud under all circumstances, could be profitably delivered in the British market at 35s. per quarter. He did not say that at the present favourable moment a good sample might not be produced at 35s.; bui could people he so blind as to believe that sucb a price gave a profit- able return to the grower? The truth was, that foreign agriculturists were in the same state as those at home; they were suffering even more than the farmers in Great Britain ; and to say that at all times wheat could be profitably imported at 35s. was nothing better than a dangerous delusion. If those who affected to lead the public mind upon this subject did not know better, it would be far wiser in them not to undertake a task for which they were so unfit. The average price of wheat in the market of . Dantzic, for the last seven years, was not less thau 48s. per quarter. But to return to the other and more reasonable class— the Hon. Member for Port- arlingtou ( Mr. Ricardo) proposed a duty of 20s. descendable to 10s. bv a decrease of Is. a year ; his ( Lord Londonderry's) proposition was a duty of 12s. with the addition of 5s. if the corn continued ware- housed for three months ; and a Right Hon. Friend ( Mr. Huskisson) had suggested a duty of 10s. with the floating addition of 5s. He ( Lord Londonderry) had no hesitation in saying that he was ready to adopt any of these proposals rather than continue under the present law. He wished, before he went further, to ascertain what was the real effect of the duty as a protection to Agriculture. They heard so much of Parliament having done nothing, and the Committee having done nothing to protect the Agri- cultural Interest, that one would really suppose the agricultural interest was iu want of a protection at a moment when the price was 30s. below that at which the ports could be open to foreign corn. The ob- jectors, nevertheless, contrived to return to their old inaccuracy: they supposed protection to mean price; and they fancied that Parliament possessed some charm which could give them the price they desired. Parliament did not enjoy any such magical power, and did not arrogate it. What, then, was the 3cale of protection ? All agreed that it was fit the country should derive its import of foreign corn through duty, and the effect of ihe principle of duty was of infipite importance. The effect was this— it would carry the corn into the warehouse, but it would not al} ow it to enter the market unless there was a strong presump- tion that it could be sold there with profit; for no man would pay the duty until he had such a prospect. It might be brought to the verge of the market, but it could not enter into competition, unless there were a real demand for it. Large importations might be made from abroad, but ihey could not he poured into the market; they must remain in the warehouses, and there the duty would keep them. The country way thus protected from the influx of an inordinate quantity of foreign grain. Whatever plan was adopted, he should consider it a state of absolute security, compared with the danger to which the country was al present exposed ; and something in the nature of duty ought to be imposed without delay. He flattered himself that he had now performed fhe task he had undertaken, and fully explained the nature of his propositions. The first Resolution he should propose would have reference to the million to be applied to advances upon British corn ware housed under certain regulations. His second Re- solution would be to enable parties having foreign corn warehoused to grind it under certain regulations satisfactory to the House, in order that no part should come into home consumption. Several resolutions would apply to the third branch of his subject, the alteration of the existing corn laws, fixing the scale of duty, but not changing the first price of import ation, 80s. The House was aware that there was a very large mass of foreign corn now in the ware- houses of the country, not less than 800,000 or 900,000 quarters, of which between 600,000 and 700,000 quarters was wheat. Tt had been imported under the existing law, and if no measure of pre caution were taken when the ports were declared open, all this grain would be flung at once upon the market without the restraint of duty. It would be brought into Mark- Lane as rapidly as the warehouses could be discharged of it. It was true that Parlia- ment might apply to this grain the duty imposed upon that to be brought in futare from the Conti- nent; but this step could not he taken without a breach of good faith towards those who owned the corn now in the warehouses. It was therefore pro- posed that this grain should be. allowed to come into the market before any fresh importations, on the pay- ment of the duty. Thus not only would the country incur no danger, but a positive protection would be afforded. If the Chancellor of the Exchequer took Wednesday for his Financial Resolutions, he ( Lord Londonderry) thought that Friday would be a good day for the House to take into consideration the ex- pediency of agreeing to the present Resolutions, which it was very desirable should be done, more especially with respect to that resolution for the issue ofa million to be applied in advances on British corn; for if Parliament did any thing on such a subject, it was highly expedient with reference to the interests of the country that they should do it as soon as possible. I'he Noble Lord then concluded, amidst universal cheering, having first moved the following resolution :— " That it is the opinion of this Committee, tbat his Majesty be enabled to issue a grant of Exchequer Bills, not exceeding one million sterling, to Com- missioners to he appoinied for that purpose, in Great Britain, to be advanced whenever the market price of corn should be under 60s. a quarter on such corn, the grow th of the United Kingdom, which should be deposited as security in fit and proper warehouses." After some discussion, in which the propositions made by the Marquis of LONDONDERRY were ob- jected to by Mr. WESTERN, Mr. RICARDO, and Mr. BIIOUGHAM, and supported generally by Mr. HUS- KISSON, the further debate on ihe subject was adjourned to Wednesday. off so fast as to leave a portion of the stipulated £ 2,800,000 not disposed of, more than adequate to satisfy all the remaining pensioners. Mr". RICARDO, Mr. BROUGHAM, and others, oh. served thai if any profit can be made by this plan, the Sinking Fund will be tbe best contractors ; for the Sinking Fund is not wanted in the market to keep up the Funds; indeed it now operates there against itself; and if by purchasing this new kind of stock, which the Government can sell as well as any contractors, gain can ultimately be made by the Sinking Fund, the nation will have that gain ; while the true object of the Sinking Fund, the diminution of the debt, will be more than equally obtained. ArS amendment to this effect was moved by Mr. HUME4 but was negatived without a division ; and the reso* lutions proposed by the CHANCELLOR OF THE EX- CHEQUER were carried.— These resolutions are as follow :— 1. Resolved— That it is the opinion of this com- mittee, that the amount of the Military and Naval Pensions, and Civil Superannuations, may be esti- mated at about £ 5,000,000. 2. That it is the opinion of this committee, that this sum, calculated as an annuity guaranteed by Parliament, may be considered as a* burden, forming a charge upon the public income of tbe country for the lives of the annuitants, subject to such reo- ula- tions as are applicable in each case. 3. That it is the opinion of this committee that the amount of this charge has been increased, ' prin- cipally by the long duration and extended exertions ofthe late war, from the sum of about £ 650 0 « H) to the said sum of £ 5,000,( 500. 4. That it is tbe opinion of this committee, that under this great accumulation of annual charge, and in the present state of the country, it is expedient to make provision for apportioning this burden so as lo ensure its final extinction, either by an equal annual annuity, terminable within 45 years, or by permanent annuities, with such provision for tbe repayment thereof as is required by the act 32 Geo. III. e. 55 5. That it is the opinion of this committee, that the Commissioners of his Majesty's Treasury should treat and contract ( subject to the approbation of Parliament) with such bodies politic and corporate, or other persons, as may be willing to undertake to provide for the charge of the above. mentioned pen- sions and allowances, or any part thereof, in either ofthe above modes; and who shall give adequate security for the performance of sue!) undertakino-. If the pensions are now £ 5,000,000 a year, they will, at the end of each one of the ensuing 45 years be of the following magnitude :— After year 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 30 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 £ 5,0'; 0,000 4,855,856 4,711,708 4,567,559 4,425,561 4,283,563 4,141,565 4,00i, 719 3, H61,932 3,722,116 3,585,494 3,448,872 3,312,250 3,179,476 3,046,703 2,913,930 2,7S6, I36 2,658,343 2,530,550 2,410,392 2,290,239 2,170,07? 2,058,431 After year 23 24 £ 1,946,801 - 1,835,163 25 - 1,732,483 26 - 1,629,803 27 - 1,527,124 28 - 1,433,929 29 - 1,340,731 30 - 1,247,540 "" Liei, ii3 1,080,686 • 997,260 926,473 855,687 784,900 722,536 • 600,179 • 597,807 • 544,487 • 491,167 • 437,847 • 392,302 • 346,757 • 306,679 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 HOUSE OF COMMONS- TUESDAY. CATHOLIC PEERS. Mr. CANNING, in a speech of great length and abounding with his unrivalled flow of eloquence, brought forward his motion for the admission of Roman Catholic Peers to sit and vote in the House of Lords, as was the case down to the year 1678. The Right Hon. Gent, contended, that the exclusion of Roman Catholic Peers at the ahove period was owing' to unfounded calumnies, and hatched. np plots and conspiracies in which they were alleged to have been participators. Mr. PEEL opposed the motion. He considered it as a manoeuvre to obtain a part, in order that the whole of what was wished might be the more readily brought to follow. He could not conceive our ancestors were deprived of common sense; and history would shew that, without reference to the plots alluded to, there was abundant reason for excluding Roman Catholic Peers from Parliament at the period when that exclusion first took place. British and Foreign Bible Society^ On Wednesday, tbe General Meeting of the British and Foreign Bible Society was held at the Great Hall of Freemasons'Tavern, and at an early hour it. was filled by a numerous and respectable assemblage.— Lord Teignmouth was called to the Chair.— The Secretary read the Report, and gave the most satisfactory details of the progress of the British Auxiliary Society, and also of the Bible Societies which now pervaded almost every part of Europe, ond the most flattering communications from persons of rank in almost every province on the Con- tinent, were read to the meeting, and detailed the progress and the effects which the dissemination of the Scriptures had worked upon the people, in some instances amounting almost to an entire change of manners. In Catholic countries the progress" was beyond their utmost expectations. Evea unionist the Jews, the Chinese, aud the Mahometans, Bibles had been introduced, and had gone on under cir. en instances of great promise. In the Society Islands . also a translation of the Gospel of St. John had been introduced, after the establishment of a school In Patagonia Bibles had been circulated, and in every part of North America societies had been formed, and were flourishing. In Nova Seotia thev had in- troduced a translation ; as well as in Labrador, where some of the natives had subscribed seals and blubber for the benefit of the Society, when they were in- formed of its nature and objects. In the remote parts of Scotland, societies had been established, and liberal contributions made towards the support o the present establishment. lo Ireland they had also made considerable progress in the dissemination ot the Scriptures. Il appeared that the number of Bibles circulated during last year, were beyond that of the preceding year; and altogether there were more than three millions and a half of the Society's Bibles in silent hut active operation in almost every quarter of the world, and iu almost every lanoUao- e rile contributions of the Society amounted last year to upwards of £ 103,000, of which more than £ 59 000 had been received from the Auxiliary Societies. I he disbursements amounted last year to £ 90,490 — The Duke of Gloucester, the Earl of Harrowby, Lords 1 eignniouth ami Calthorpe, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Mr. Wilberforce, were present. — Several appropriate Resolutions were agreed to" after which the Meeting dispersed. ° * WELSH BIBLES.—- On Tuesday, a numerous and respectable meeting of the Welsh population resident in London, took place at the Paul's Head, Cateaton- street, for the purpose of promoting the dissemination of the Scriptures among the numerous Welsh Poor ( said to be 50,000) in the Metropolis. Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, Bart, presided. did not doubt the loyalty of the present Members of the Peerage who were" Roman Catholics; but he stood upon the principle of the measure; for how could we deny temporary and unrestricted seats to Roman Catholics in the House of Commons, if we admitted the hereditary right of Catholics to sit in the House of Peers. As he considered the admission of Roman Catholics into Parliament to he a measure inimical to the Protestant Constitution of this King- dom, he should oppose the motion. The motion was supported by Mr. AGAR ELLIS, Lord FRANCIS GOWPR, Mr. WAR'RE, Mr. R. MARTIN, Mr. PLNNKETT, and Lord NUGENT.— Mr. WETHERELL opposed the motion. On a division, the motion was carried by a majority of five, out of an uncommonly full House, the numbers being— for the motion 249— against it 244. fit is most likely, however, that the measure will be ulti- mately lost in the House of Peers. J HOUSE OF COMMONS— WEDNESDAY. Mr. HILL presented a petition from Whitchurch ( Shropshire), and Mr. PANTON CORBETT presented one from Shrewsbury, praying for a repeal of the Leather Tax. The CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER brought forward his resolutions for equalizing the burden of the Superannuation & Army and Navy Pension List for a term of 45 years, as announced by the Marquis of Londonderry on Monday night. Contractors are to be found to receive for the whole of that period a fixed sum annually ( calculated at £ 2,800,000), en- gaging to pay during the said 45 years the ahove descriptionsofpensions, amounting now to£ 5,000,000. but of course gradually decreasing by deaths and casualties. Mr. HUSKISSON explained, that by carrying to market from time to time portions of the stipulated sum of £ 2,800,000, or Long Annuities for 45 years, as might be done with any other Stock, the'Con- tractors would have nothing to advance, and their profit will be, when hereafter the pensioners shall die POOR RATES OX TITHES.— At the late Nor- folk Sessions, an appeal was made by the Rev Di- Bui wer, Rector of Cawston, against the Poor Rates of that parish. The Doctor had been rated at £ 550 for his tithes, against which he appealed upon the ground that it exceeded a fourth of the assessment upon the titheable property in the parish, which, he contended, was the proportion at which tithes should be assessed to the Poor Rate. The Court dismissed the appeal, being unanil raously of opinion, that there was no rule in law for fixing a proportional assessment on tithes as He i compared with land, and that the only principle was, to assess all real property according to the productive value or profit which it yielded. A perfectly white mole was on Monday un, earthed by a ploughman, on the farm of Broumi ig, near Dumfries. Last week, two labourers emploved in digging gravel in the pits at Middie- hill, near Batb » discovered two elephantine tusks, one 15 feet below the surface of the earth, the other 10; thc former was in a state of too much decay to be preserved; tbe latter measuring nearly 5 feet in length, was taken up almost in a perfect state, anil is now iu the psosession of the Rev.
