PELICAN OFFICE, FOR INSURANCE ON LIVES And granting Annuities, LOMBARD STREET AND SPRING GARDEN, LONDON. rjpHIS Office was established in tbe Jl Year 1797, by a numerous and respectable Proprietary; and the Board of Directors, witb Con- fidence, arising from tbe increased Prosperity and Permanency of tbe Establishment, as well as from tbe Experience of its Usefulness and Benefit to tbe Public, think it due to those who may be still unac- quainted with the Importance and Advantages of Life Insurance, briefly to suggest some of its leading nnd peculiar Recommendations to almost every jRanJc in Society. iLife- Insurance is of manifest Consequence to all „ who ihold Estates for Life, Situations and Offices, 4Civil, Ecclesiastical, or Professional ; to Officers in ihe Army and Navy, as, by Payment of an Annual Premium, the Party insured is enabled to provide for Wife, Children, or others, whose future Welfare he may wish in vain, by otber Means, to promote. It affords a permanent ultimate Security lo those who advance Money upon Annuities or otherwise. It renders Leases, determinable on one or more Lives, nearly equal in Value to Freehold Estates, as an Insurance to the Amount of the Eine, payable on tbe Demise of a Parly nominated to such Leases, will produce the Sum required for the Renewal. It is a cheering Refuge to Parties en- gaged in extensive and speculative Undertakings; it affords to Persons in Trade tbe certain Means of Indemnification against a bad or doubtful Debt; in short. Life Insurance, established in Policy, sanc- tioned by Government, and confirmed by tbe Test of Experience, is become, to almost every Situation in Human Life, a Measure equally important, useful, and beneficial. Annuities are granted upon tbe most equitable Term*, under a special Act of Parliament granted to this Office. THOMAS PARKE, Secretary. PELICAN COMPANY'S AGENTS AT worthy the Notice of the Public and to Travellers in particular, to whose Attention they are strongly pointed out as the most portable, safe, and mild Aperient Medicine tbat can possibly be made use of.

Persons of the most delicate Constitution may take them witb Safety in all Seasons of tbe Year ; and in all Cases of Obstruction arising from Cold or otber Causes, where an opening Medicine is wanted, they will he found the best cordial Stimulant in Use.

Composed of Vegetables, without the Admixture of any Mineral or pernicious Ingre- dient whatever, it is free from the usual Objection against the Use of other Dentifrices. Its detersive Power is just sufficient to annihilate those destructive Particles which adhere to the Gums and the Inter- stices of the Teeth; healing Injuries in the former, and promoting a new Enamel ( where it has been injured or corroded) on the latter. It likewise imparts a Firmness and healthy Redness to tbe Gums; and if used regularly will preserve the Teeth in a sound State to Old Age.

The Fiench anil Frankfort Papers which arrived yesterday, gratified public feeling in a high degree, by the annunciation of a great and decisive victory, obtained by the Greeks over their oppressors, on the 8th ult. The defile of Thermopylae is said to have been the auspicious scene of the engagement, and the details of the battle, as far as they are given, rendered the glorious event ascribed to it extremely probable. Chourschid Pacha, the Infidel Commander, re- inforced, as it is said, by Ihe junction of the Pachas of Negroponte, I. arissa, and Janina, his whole army amounting lo 90.000, 70,000, or 40,000 ( ai jt is variously intimated), resolved upon penetrating into Greece Proper, by the City of Zeituri, which lies a feiv miles northward of Thermopylae. On the 7th the Turks commcnced the attack with their characteristic impetuosity. The assault, as usual, was irresistible; the Greeks retreated into the defiles and fastnesses of that difficult country, and were followed hy the pursuers with an indiscretion as characteristic as their valour and ferocity. In the broken ground of Mount Parnassus, the physical strength of the Turks, their cumbrous arms, and their cavalry, were use- less, as opposed to the light and active Infantry of the crafty Greeks, while the sullen fatalism of the [ VTussuhnen took from them Ihe energy necessary for their safety, and the result was, necessarily, the annihilation of the whole Turkish army, except about 4000 of a reserve. Four Pachas are said < o have fallen inlo the hands of the Greeks ; but the Commander, Chourschid, is supposed to have escaped with the reserve. The battle lasted two days; on the first ( the 7th), in which the Turks were victorious, the brave Mainote Chief Odysseus, or Ulysses, closed a life worthy of the name he bore, that name by which the genius of his country had personified skill, and perseverance, and patriotism. On this day, also, the Foreign brigade, composed for the most part of German youths, paid, with their blood, a part of the debt which Europe owes to Greece. They are said to have withstood the shock of the whole Turkish army, and to have maintained their position until Ihe brigade was nearly destroyed, when Count Normann and the few survivors were hurried from the field by the Greek leaders Ou the evening of the 7th, Chourschid Pacha, in that temper of contempt for an enemy whieh often leads to destruction, sent an express to Con- tantinople, aonounciae the destruction nf tiie Giaours. The Commanders on the side of the Greeks were, besides the brave Odysseus, Ypsilatiti and Count Normann— the latter appears to be Ihe object of enthusiastic admiration with the Greeks. Such is Ihe accou it of Ihe Augsburg and Frank- fort Papers ; and, as far as ihe fact of an engage ment, and the success of the Turks on the 7th ult., it seems to be confirmed by the accounts from Constantinople, which come down lo the 25lh.

Of the intended coronation of the Emperor of Mexico, the following mention is made:—" By ao arrival at Charleston, from Havannah, advices have been received that great preparations are making for Ihe coronation of the Emperor Itnrbide, which was to take place on the 24th of June, and the expences for which are represented as enormous. Those for the palace are estimated at 516,000 dollars; 86,000 for the Imperial crown; 24,000 for four coaches; decorations of the palace, 86,000; and 350,000 for the interior, & c. The Emperor's party is represented to be declining in strength, and it is said to be principally composed of sol- diers, who are paid for their cries of " Long live the Emperor!" THE LCTINE FRIGATE.— An answer has been received by the Underwriters at Lloyd's Coffee- house from the Dutch Government, which has excited some surprise. It regards the Lutine frigate, which was long since wrecked on the roast of Holland, with half a million of specie on board, intended for Prussia. Two sailor? only survived, but it was not known what had heroine of the frigate until recently, when she was found buried in tbe sand on the Dutch coast. The British Government, w hich sent the specie as a subsidy to Prussia, insured at Lloyd's, and, in due course, received the money on proof of the loss. The Insurers, therefore, or such of them as are alive, applied a short time since to the Dutch Govern- ment, for permission to take the specie out ofthe wreck of the Lutine. The answer obtained, though very courteous, is by no means satisfactory upon any account: it is this—" That as the Lutine was wrecked pending a war witb Holland, the property of course became Dutch, and no restoration can therefore he made. Had the disaster occurred while peace existed, the Dutch Government would i have been most ready to afford every facility for the recovery of the specie from the wreck." Most Important Discnrery.— Six weeks since application was made to a person for the loan of one hundred pounds to a young chemist, who had made a discovery he was too poor to suhstan tiate hy experiment. The money was obtained, and in a few days repaid by the borrower, already raised to sudden affluence by the private disposal of his invention : — It is a new mode of TANNING SKINS, combining such rapidity and economy, as promise to the publican immediate and immense advantage.— RAW HIDES, hitherto lying tnelre months in a tan- pit, and subjected to a process otherwise defective and precarious, are now perfect leather within six weeks, ar. d. at less than half Ihc expense. The Gentleman who bought the invention, is a noted Opposition Member and Contractor, and, from the terms of his stipulation, we may form some judgment of the probable magnitude of the results. He has paid him ten thousand pounds doivn, lie has given obligatory deeds, secured him £ 5,000 on Ihe 1st of January, £ 5,000 per annum for the four tiears next suc- ceeding, and afterwards eleven thousand a year fur life!— It is expected the price of a pair of boots v. ill not exceed cigit shillings, and a cor- responding fall will be produced in all articles of leather manufacture.— Globe. ond targets, Captain Mackenzie, of Guinard. 3.

Twel ve Gentlemen ot his House, among whom we noticed the gallant Col. Macdonnell, brother of the Chief. fi. The Marchioness of Stafford has sent up 50 men from Dnnrobin. They came to attend on lief f. adv- ship's second son, Lord Francis Leveson Gower, who carries the Sceptre, bv royal permission, as repre- senting his mother. They wear ihe plaid, scarf, fashion, anil tlie trews ; which, though perhaps an ancient garb, has not quite such a military effect as Ihe belled plaid. The Sutherland men have swords, without any other weapon, 7. Lady Gwydyr has produced a very gallant band of Drmnmonds, about 30 we think ; for equipments, in the hurry, could he found for no more, though many were assembled. They wearsword and target, have a holly- bough in tbeir cap, theancient badge of their tribe ; and are as smart mountaineers as the eye would wish to look on. The Dukes of At ho! and Gordon, Mac Leod, Lord Fife, Sirs Farquharson of Iiivercauld, and other High Chiefs, offered, we understand, to . contribute to this martial attendance; aud it would have been, no doubt, an easy thing to have rendered it twenty- fold more numerous. This was, however, declined, for various reasons; and, in particular, because the 2 or 300 men already as- sembled formed a sufficient specimen ofthe readi- ness of Highlanders, their martial appearance, and their attachment to their Chiefs. To legalize the meeting of so many of the Clan', sonic were sworn in to act as guards to the Lord High Constable and Knight Marshal, in discharge of their high offices; and nothing could fcc more orderly than the conduct of these military strangers. Sir Walter Scott, hy universal consent, acted as Adjutant. General to these gallant mountaineers. It has been stated, that the King had it in contemplation to restore the forfeited titles of the Scottish Peers. Among those particularly likely lo receive this proof of his Majesty's favour we hear, are Ihe Dukedom of Perth, and Ihe Earldom of Mar; the former to be given to Lord Gwydir, in right ofhis wife, and the latter to Mr. Erskiiic' of Mar. It is also rumoured that there will be some new creations, when Sir Waller Scott will be raised fo the Peerage, wilh the title of Baron Abbolsford. THE r, ATE MARQUIS OF LONDONDERRY. In the year 1780, his Lordship had an opportunity of saving the life of a deserving lad, who was at once his playmate, his friend, and the son of his revered preceptor. With what presence of mind he ac quitted himself on ihis awful occasion, the follow- ing simple narrative, taken from The Ilctfast News Letter of that period, will demonstrate: " Some days ago, Mr. Robert Stewart, son of th « Right Hon. Robert Stewart, of Mount Stewart near Newtownardcs, in company with Master Sturrock was sailing on Strangford Lough, a considerable distance from the land, opposile'thedemesne, when a squall cameon, which sunk the boat. Mr. Stew- art could easily have saved himself by swimming but generously remained with Mr. Sturrock, and) by uncommon presence of mind, contrived to sup! port hiin in the water, till ( hey were both picked up by a gentleman, who accidentally saw the disaster from an eminence in the demesne, and put off from the shore to their relief. We congratulate his friends on his escape, and the communily, of which he promises one day to be a valuable member." To the above brief account, we beg leave to add that when the vessel had foundered, the two boys sank and ruse together. At the critical moment, when they reascended to the surface of the Lake, Stewait, who was a powerful swimmer, laid hold of his friend, and supported him till the swell of Ihe water had subsided,— Meanwhile, Sturrock, a generous boy, cried out, " O Robert, Robert, let me go ! / must be drowned, but you may get to some of the islands, or may be picked up by some boat,"—" No, Henry, we will live or die together," replied the magnanimous youth. In this situation with astonishing presence of mind, he seized ti e floating scuttle board, placed it under his friend and made him rest upon it. Meanwhile Mr. Cleland, who was sealed iu " The Temple," ut the distance of two miles ond a half from the socuc of action, having perceived that the pleasure boat was no longer visible, rushed to the Lake, sprung into a yawl, and, with the aid of ( we believe) a Mr. Ferguson, proceeded rapidly towards the scene of danger. A shout nltered by young Stewart vvas heard. Something dark was seen floating on ti e surface of the water. " ' Tis Robert Slew ail's black head," exclaimed Mr. Cleland. It was only bis ha!. The boat proceeded, the spirited boy himself appeared, and they heard him cry out, " do not mind me, I ran float for some time yet ! A little further on— O, Henry! Henry! save Henry!" They pushed on— Henry vvas discovered, and both were saved. The Right Hon. I. ord Carrington, of VVvcomb Abbey, without any solicitation on the part of his tenantry at VVycomb, sent for thcrn last week, and informed them he was aware the distresses uf the times were extreme, and precluded all possibility of meeting their present rental; he should, therefore cause a valuation to he made by an experienced person, who would do justice to both parties, and adjust their rents to the present price of provisions. LON DON— SATURDAY. DOWN! NG. STREET, Aug. 31. The King has been pleased to appoint Lieuf- fien. the Hon. Sir George Lowry Cole, G C. 13. lu be Governor of tbe Island of Mauritius. HOLYROOD HOUSE, Aug. 22. The King was lliis day pleAsed to confer the honour of Knighthood on Sir Thomas Pule Han. bin, Lieutenant- Colonel of the Royal Scots Greys. The Paris Papers throw no light upon the recent accounts of thc military operations between thc Turks aud the Greeks ( see first puqej. A mail from Coifti, bringing letters to the 25! h of Julv, gives the victory unequivocally to the Ottoman f > rccs; but it is objected to this information that allusion is made only to the first day's conflict, when il is acknowledged on all hands that thc Turks remained masters of tht field. The Corfu I. tiers supply very few particulars, and those not new; but il is to be gathered from them that the ballIc was not on so great a scale as is represented in the accounts iu the French and German papers. Madrid Journals to the 23d inst. have been received, and communicate several details of the Operations against thc Spanish insurgents, who are stated to be beaten in every direction by the Government troops and the militia. Advices have been received from Leghorn, dated ou tbe 13th, and from Genoa, dated on the 15th current. At the latter place a considerable advance has taken place in the value of Piedmontese aud Lombardy wheat. India corn, rice, and pulse, had also risen in price in consequence of tbe deficiency in thc Italian crops this harvest. Had Ihe letters from Turkey confirmed thc closing of the Bos- pboriis, this intelligence would have been important to the English agriculturists, as affording them an opportunity of reaping benefit from Iheir surplus growth, but the Constantinople letters make no mention of Ihc communication with the Black Sea having been interrupted. There is, however, al pre- sent, a good prospect of a demand for British wheat from Spain, Italy, and the South of France, should these kingdoms not get supplied from other corn countries, where prices arc cheaper than in England. A severe winter will probably create an export demand in England, for the supplies from the Black Sea are not expected to satisfy Ihe demand in the Mediterranean, and a vent will be found for the bonded wheat now in granary, should the Baltic ports and those in Ihe North of Europe be early closed Ibis season.

THE AEBEV CHURCH.— Wc have repeatedly had occasion to notice the elegant and finely exe- cuted specimens of stained glass which have at different periods been placed in this venerable structure; and the admirers of this branch ofthe fine arls will, we have no doubt, be happy to hear that an opportunity is now afforded tliciu of seeing another beautiful specimen, which has been tem- porarily fixed in the vestry window. It consists of a portion of the noble east window of Winchester College, erected by that celebrated patron of learning and the arts, William, of Wickhani, the munificent founder of that College. This window, which had become nearly opaque, and which has been sent to our townsmen, Sir John Betton and Mr. Evans, for the purpose of being [ repaired and having the brilliancy of its glass] restored, is, when complete, about the size » ;' the whole of the magnificent west w indow that graces the tower of our Abbey Church, but its arch is not so pointed. The subject of the stained glass is similar to the one in the east window of St. Slary's chancel, namely, the Genealogy of our Saviour from Jesse,* who appears at the bottom in a deep sleep, and froiu his loin3 proceeds a vine, the branches of which over- spread the whole window, involving in each compartment a King or Patriarch of < l> e ancestry of Joseph ( the husband of the Virgin Mary').

LONDON, Monday JVighl, Sept. 2. Arrival of His Majesty, It will be seen, by reference to our 3d page, tbat His Majesty embarked from Scotland on Thursday. At 20 minutes past three o'clock yesterday afternoon, a volume of smoke ascending" over tbe banks lying between Black- wall and the Reach, gave notice to the spectators that the Koyal Squa- dron was near at hand, and in a very few moments from this time the Royal Sovereign, with her yards nicely sqiuared, hove iu sight, towed by the James Watt steam- packet. Just bef. oe the Royal Sovereign reached Black- wall. the Lord Mayor, in tbe City Barge, towed hy the Eagle, a Ramsgate steam- packet, drew gently off iuto the centre of the river, and,. taking the lead, preceded the Royal Squadron until it anived at Greenwich. At this time the river was literally covered with vessels and small craft, almost all of which had colours flying ; tens of thousands at tbe same time lined both shores. At a quarter- past four the royal yacht was fast - moored immediately off the Hospital stairs, and in a few moments the King was seen to come upon the quarter- deck, in the uniform of an Admiral. His appearance was the signal for a loud and almost unanimous burst of applause from the spectators. He then landed at Greenwich, where every suitable preparation was made for his recep- tion. He set off immediately for London, and reached Carlton Palace about a quarter- past five. As soon as his arrival was known, tbe bells of St. Martin's, St. Margaret's, and of other parishes, rang a merry peal, which was continued at intervals during the whole evening. It is now certain tbat thc Duke of Wellington will proceed to the Continental Cougress, in the place of the late lamented Marquis of Londonderry. Sir William Ilerschell., the eminent astronomer, • died yesterday se'unight at Slough, near Wiildsor, in the 86th year of his age. Holiday at the Bank. are also portraits of several of the Prophets, of King Edward III. and Richard ( in whose reigns the College was erected), William of Wick- ham., the Architect, Builder, Glass- stainer, and other artists employed in the execution of tlie work, with their names annexed to each figure the whole surmounted with a representation of the Day of Judgment. The portion now put up in the Abbey Vestry consists of portraits of King Solomon ( holding in his hands a miniature representation of the Temple), Nathan, Josaphat ( with the Royal Eagle on his arm), J'echonias, Joas, Heliseus, and Micheas, the Virgin and Child, and the Visitation : in the two latter compartments the founder, William of Wickham, appears in the act of adoration. The countenances are admirably executed, and the whole has a most beautiful effect, reflecting the greatest credit upon the artist who has so accurately and so exquisitely restored it to its pristine bril- liancy. We understand the whole will be completed in the course of a month, and will then be put up in the College at Winton. * In the beautiful and celebrated poem? written when at Winton school by Mr. Louthe, afterwards Bishop of London, to commemorate this noble window, he thus, amongst other persons, notices Jesse : Lo! from his loins the. promis'd stem ascends, And high to Heaven its sacred boughs extends : Each limb productive of some hero springs, And blooms luxuriant with a race of kings. The eternal plant wide spreads its arms around, And with the mighty branch the mystic top is crown1 d. Walmer Castle is fitting up for the reception of Lord Liverpool on his marriage with Miss Chester. Madame TUSSAUD'S Collection continues to be a grand focus of attraction, particularly the evening promenades, which have been visited by some of our first families of the town and neighbourhood: the addition of a fine Military Band renders it a most agreeable lounge ; and no one who has seen this matchless Collection will repent the time spent in viewing tbe resemblances or some of the most celebrated characters of the past and present times. The impression produced by this Exhibition is totally different from the other branches of the imitative arts. In an assemblage of statuary, we admire the conception, we. are astonished at the sublimity of the forms before us, but the actual animation of the figures we contemplate never occurs to us : the pretensions of the artist in Com- position are not of so lofty a nature; perfect resemblance alone is aimed at. To form the boundary of the sculptor's art, assisted by the colouring of painting, is added the identical costume of real life ; so that, with the exception of motion, it is scarcely a resemblance— it is our neighbour himself; and while we walk through the silent ranks, our eyes unconsciously avoid their full stare, as we involuntarily shrink from the steady observation of so large a company. Such are the impressions produced by this Collection, and we think we mav say without fear of contradiction, that no Exhibition ever gave more general satis- faction, within our recollection, in Shrewsbury. SHREWSBURY IFLYCES, wVich commence on Tuesday week, are advertised in this days Journal' ; and if any criterion may be formed of the sport to be expe. cted from the characters of the horses named for the different Stakes, the lovers of " Turf Amusements may reasonably anticipate a high treat. It is not often that the names of such favourites .. as His Royal Highness the Duke of York's Banker ( now the property of J. Mytton, Esq ), Michaelmas ( winner of the Grand " Duke Michael's Stakes), Master Henri/, Snowdon, ' ihe Doge of Venice, Spectre, Young Freemart, Tarragon, The Duke, Eastham, Gas, & e. & c. are to be met with even at places bearing- a much higher, degree of sporting celebrity than Shrewsbury.-^ We trust that the Town Subscription, now in course of col- lection, will be liberal; assured, as we are," that whatever tends to bring an influx of Nobility and Gentry to the town, must materially benefit its inhabitants. The Gold Cup is of exquisite work- manship, and does great credit to the. taste of Mr. LEWIS, Jeweller, of this town, under whose di- rections it was manufactured.— It will also be observed, that the Theatre, having been thoroughly repaired, will be re- opened on Tuesday in the Race Week, under the management of Mr. De Camp. ARCH CRY.— During the last week, the IVood- men OF AT. den held iheir annual Grand Wardmote at ihe Forest Hall,.

On the 26th ult. a second REGATTA took place at Aberdovey, which was far more numerously attended than on the former occasion. The race commenced between the boat of the Hope, Captain Jones, the King's boat, and Captain Ellis's boat, and, after a most excellent contest, was won, as on the preceding occasion, by the boat of the Hope—- lu the evening, the same boats started again, with the addition of the Canoe boat, between which and the boat of the Hope, the contest was so severe, that it was wilh difficulty decided in favour of the latter.— At four o'clock the company sat down to an excellent dinner provided by Mrs. Peters, ofthe Raven Inn, and to a splendid dessert, the latter aided by the gardens of Yuysymaengwyn, whose SHREWSBURY.

CAUTION.— Too much care cannot be used by tbe directors of iron- works, and the manufacturers of this district, for the preservation of any peeu liarities in their machinery. Foreigners are fre- quently in the habit of seeking the inspection of the more curious parts of processes, the strict preservation of which is highly important to national prosperity. We are informed that very recently, an attempt was made by some ingenious individuals from the Continent, to obtain access to manufactories in this neighbourhood, which was fortunate Lasses of tbe Forest in the Lottery were Miss Skipwith and ftjiss Steward, the first drawing tbe Gold Arrow, and tbe latter the Gold Bugle.— There were balls ou the Wednesday and Friday evenings, which were kept up with much spirit and vivacity till tbe morning bugle sounded a retreat into the recesses of the foi est. All the General Turnpike Acts are repealed by an Act of the last session of Parliament, iutitled u an aet to amend the general laws now in being for regulating- the turnpike roads in that part of Great Britain called England." It is bv this Act enacted, that no person who shall hereafter be chosen or appointed a Trustee or Commissioner, shall be qualified or capable of becoming and acting as a Trustee or Commissioner in the execution of any Act of Parliament for making, & c. any turn- pike road, unless he shall be in his o\ vn right, or in right of his wife, in the actual possession or receipt of the rents and profits of freehold or copyhold lands, tenements, or hereditaments, of the clear yearly value of £ 100, above reprizes, or be heir apparent of a person possessed of freehold or copyhold lands, & c. of thee tear yearly value of £ 200, above reprizes ; and unless he shall before acting & c. take and subscribe an oath or affirmation to that effect.

RECIPE.— The lime- water procurable frosai gas- works* and through which the gas pass- il for the purpose of purification, is recommended as hav- ing been perfectly successful in cases of Ringworm of the Scalp, even where the whole scalp has been covered with scabs and small deep ulcers.— In using this remedy, it is not commonly necessary to shave the head, but it must be well cleansed, morning and evening, with soap and water, and afterwards carefully washed with the lime water. If tbe disease is particularly obstinate, it is requisite to rub the water into the scalp with a soft brush. It is believed this water will not disappoint the expectations of the profession and the public in the cure of this complaint. It has a strong gaseous impregnation, & is most disgustingly fcetid. FOR TILE SALOPIAN JOURNAL. To the Magistracy of the County of Salop. MY LORDS, AND GENTLEMEN, Among the many blessings of our enviable and invaluable Constitution, that of a firm, conscientious and enlightened Magistracy is one ofthe greatest; being- a Tribunal to which the People at large, and especially the Poor, may confidently appeal, with the ill expectation of obtaining- redress promptly and even gratuitously ; affording a remarkable contrast to the delay, uncertainty, and gieat • jharge attendant upon un application to the higher Courts of Law. E. ven when a Magistrate,, acting solely, is determined to exercise his authority and judg- me. i* in an energetic and impartial manner, the mo t be . e iciat results inevitably follow, and are eafarbeypnd the immediate sphere of his influ- eu . Innumerable instances might be adduced of the g a< good following- from the benevolent and active rate fereiice of the Magistrate, by his advice and < a le allaying disputes amongst parties in fa Jet, villages, by encouraging and pro- moting iiiuithropic and charitable objects, and especial b- discountenancing and suppressing Vice ami Immorality. Of the kt er instance a striking example is afforded bv the Surrey Magistrates, as announced in some of the London Papers, in their determina- tion to suppress, as much as may be, the revellings hitherto carried o . at the various Fairs in that county, by causing all Public- Houses to be shut at Sold by W.

Roose.— Tbis was an action brought by the plaintiff, a corn- factor and miller, residing at Amlwch, against Mr. Roose, a solicitor of tbe same place, for having said of tbe plaintiff, that if he paid every man Ill's due, he would not be worth a sixpence. The words not being actionable in themselves, it was necessary to prove special damages, in order to support his case. The plaintiff laid bis damages at £ 1000.— A compromise being refused by tbe defendant, the case was gone into; after which the Judge summed up, and tbe Jury, having withdrawn for about ten minutes, returned a verdict for plaintiff— Damages £ 10.— Attorney for plaintiff, Mr. II. 11. Williams.— Defendant in person. Price and Wife v. Peters, Gent.—' This was a pro- ceeding by a Writ, in tlie nature of a Writ of Right under the Statute of tbe 12th Edward the First, brought by the plaintiff, a solicitor at Carnarvon, against Mr. Peters, of Amlwch, for tbe recovery of a valuable property at Amlwch, which plaintiff claimed in right ofhis wife, as heir at law of the late William Peters, Esq. The trial of this cause was put off by tbe demandants at tbe Second Session, 1821, on a peremptory undertaking given by them to try the same at the then next Great Session.— At the First Session, 1822, the Tenant moved for judgment as in case of a nonsuit for not proceeding to tbe trial thereof, in pursuance of such undertaking, when tbe demandants moved for further time until the last Session, upon an affidavit of tbe illness and absence of necessary and material witnesses, which was granted upon payment of the costs of the Session, and peremptorily to be tried without further delay, at the tben next Great Session. The demandants not having served notice of trial, the Tenant obtained judgment as in case of a nonsuit, thereby establishing his right to the property in question. IT the RADNORSHIRE Great Sessions, Thomas Davie?, for a burglary in the house of Mrs, Howell, of Glasburv, received sentence of death.—. At these Sessions an action was tried, Lewis v. Price, in which the plaintiff sought to recover £ 4. 13s. 6d. being, as he alleged, a balance due to him from the defendant, for hauling stone to Talcoed, at which place defendant had contracted to build a house and premises for Mr. Berrington, a gentleman of pro- perty in that county.- - On the case being gone into, the plaintiff's own witnesses proved that there was only due to him £ 32. 7s. 6d.; and that defendant had paid him £ 35, being £ 2. 12s. 6d. over his account ; upon this shewing defendant's counsel declined calling any witness, and the case went to the Jury, who returned a verdict for plaintiff, for £ 4. 13s. 6d.! — We need scarcely add that the defendant obtained a rule Nisi for a new trial. At the CARNARVON Great Sessions, an action for crim con. Mas brought by Mr. Stevenson, music and dancing- master, of Bangor, against Mr. Jones, surgeon, of the same place ( who lately came out of Carnarvon Gaol, under the Insolvent Debtors' Act). — The defendant was charged with having seduced the wife of the plaintiff in the year 1820, and the damages were laid at £ 1000.— Tbe case having heen gone through, tbe Jury returned a verdict for plain- tiff— damages £ 20. At MERIONETH Great Sessions, at Polgelly, there was not. a prisoner for trial ; only one cause on the Civil Side was tried, and that was of no interest. \ T a MEETING of the COMMITTEE, OL held at the Office of Mr. W.

HAWKERS OF TEA.— On Saturday se'nnight, George Graham was convicted at Warwick, in the mitigated penalty of £ 25, for having exposed and sold tea in a room or place not duly entered The full penalty is £ 100.

A consideration of this praiseworthy conduct induces me to direct your Pttention to - n- evil of a ! more aggravated kind, which cannot but be con- sidered disgraceful to this county; that is, the horrid abuse of the Festival called the Wake Sunday: which, although originating in the piety of our forefathers, as a Religions Festival at. the Dedication of the Parish Church, is now profaned by riotings and debaucheries not exceeded at. the Fairs above complained of, which, it is to be observed, are only carried on during the working days. It is but lately that on a Wake Sunday, in a village near Oswestry, puppet and other shews were& publicly exhibited by the turnpike road side, with noise of drums and other musical instruments; and in another viilage, in the same quarter, a bear was openly baited at an early hour in the afternoon, amidst the yellings and huzzaing of a vast concourse of people ;* beside the usual accompaniments of gambling, football and quoit playing, dancing and tippling. It is scarcely necessary to observe, that in neither of the two villages alluded to is there a resident Clergyman, or a Gentleman of influence sufficient to suppress such scandalous proceedings ; the mischief of which to the rising generation, and youth of both sexes, is incalculable. Were a Public Notice issued from your Bench, when assembled in Quarter Session, calling upota all Churchwardens and Constables to dv Si.^ ir - duty* stating also that, upon information being laid against Publicans encouraging such practices, tbeir Licences would be withdrawn, and that all other persons so offending would be punished with the severity of the law, this enormous evil would be. considerably lessened, the Sacred Day would be spent in a more becoming manner by the labouring and lower classes of Society, great public good would be effected, and a laudable example would be set forthe imitation of the surrounding counties, wherein these disgraceful proceedings are but too well known. With all possible respect, MY LORDS, AND GENTLEMEN, I subscribe myself, Your very obedient servant, SPPCTATQR. LANCASTER ASSIZES. At these Assizes, tbe principal evidence against Richard Ueys, aged 45, who was indicted for commit- ting a burglary iu the dwelling- houseof Thomas Fish- wick, at lleapey, near Chorlev, was his accomplice, a » irl of the name of Lettice Smith, who swore to his having broken open a window and put her through, when she opened him the door. On her cross ex- amination, in answer to an inquiry why she had heen so long in disclosing the matter, she said the prisoner ( a married man with four children) had kept her in all kinds of wickedness. He had kept her a long time tied toa tree in a wood, near his bouse. He made a hut or cave round it of sticks and sods, with a door, which be fastened up with stones and sods, when lie went away. He sometimes brought her bread and sometimes d little meat with it. She was nearly clammed. This he did in consequence of her having threatened to tell. She got away one night when lie came to her, and happened to fall asleep, when she was untied. The wood is a thick one, with much small wood, and the place was in a hollow. This extraordinary story was in some respects corroborated, and the prisoner was convicted, CHESTER ASSIZES terminated on Monday last; when Thomas Brierley, Robert Ellis, and Samuel Rowe, for assaulting- and robbing William June on the highway between Congleton and Knutsford; Thomas Sugden, John War bur ton, Wright Wood, and John Judgson, for horse- stealing; Theodosius Wagstaff, James Bratt, Robert Booth, and James Booth, for a burglary at Stockport, severally received sentence of death.— Thomas Mills, a hatter from Stockport, aged 44, was charged with the wilful murder of his own son, about 18 years of age. It appeared in evidence that the son was in liquor at the time, and that he and the father were quarrelling and cursing- each other; the result was, the father beat the son so dreadfully as to cause his death in a few days. Tbe prisoner was found guilty of man slaughter, and, under tbe powers of the recent Act of Parliament, was, for his aggravated ofteuce, sentenced to be TRANSPORTED FOR LIFE.— Three prisoners were sentenced to lie transported for seven years; six to various periods of imprisonment; Capt. Thackeray, against whom articles of the pence were exhibited by Mr. Clift'e, surgeon, of Parkgate, was remanded for want of sureties; one prisoner was admitted evidence; 3 were discharged by proclama- tion ; and 3 were acquitted. EXECUTION.— On Saturday last was executed, on the lodge of Gloucester Gaol, Samuel Barrett, aged 31, convicted at the last Assizes of stealing three horses, the property of Richard Hooper, of St. George's. He was conducted to the scaffold, about twelve o'clock, and having briefly exhorted the people to take warning by his disgraceful fate, was launched into eternity, in the presence of an immense concourse of spectators. About seven years ago he was sentenced to be transported for stealing two donkeys, from Bradbury, Wilts, and having served five years and three months on board the hulks, the remainder of his time was remitted, and he was discharged in January, 1820. He im- mediately returned to his old companions, and was in close connection with a most notorious set of horse- stealers and house- breakers, of whose pro- ceedings he has given an accurate account. Since the period of his'discharge, it appears that he has been actually a party in stealing- no less than 35 horses from various parts of the country, which were disposed of at Smithfield, Brighton, Bristol, and other places ; and he was one of the persons concerned in the robbery of Mr. Godfrey's house, at Bitton, a few months ago. Some of the property has beeu recovered in consequence of his confession. We understand that Sir John Henry Palmer, Bart, returned to his Northamptonshire tenants, at his rent day on Wednesday se'nnight, at Har- borou « ; h, 20 percent, upon their rents, commencing from Lady day, 1821, but no return was made to his tenants in Leicestershire, whose farms remained at the old rents, on his coming into possession of the estates. Lord Crewe lias lately reduced the rents of his tenants, iu many instances 50 per cent, and various cases cancelled the leases, and granted others proportioned to tbe present price of produce.

Oil Friday evening the fashionable world enjoyed the splendid Boll given by ihe Peers of Scotland to his Majesty. The ladies were elegantly attired in the dresses which they wore at the Drawing- room. The gentlemen were mostly attired in naval and military uniforms and the notional garb; the High- land tartan was never displayed to more advantage. The Duke of Argyll appeared as chief of the Camp- bell Clans. The Hnke of Hamilton wns also arrayed in tartan, richly adorned; and many other personages of note wore the costume of the mountains. Of the whole Scotch Peerage, scarcely any were absent of those at preseut in the country. By nine o'clock the rooms were completely filled. The King arrived about half- past nine, attended by the Duke of Dorset, and several Noblemen and Gentlemen en suite. His Majesty was hailed with respectful obeisances by the company within. He was dressed in a Field Marshal's uniform, nnd appeared in excellent spirits. The dancing of the reels appeared to give bim most de- light. At a few minutes past eleven his Majesty retired, and entering his carriage, setoff for Dalkeith. In all the streets through which the royal carriage passed, it was londly cheered by the people. On Saturday the ancient regalia of Scotland were conveyed back with state pomp by an escort of High- landers, amid the sound of their bagpipes, from Holyrood House to the Castle, nnd deposited hy the proper officers in their previous place of security. Oo the same day a splendid hnnqaet wns given to his Majesty in the Parliament House, hy the Lord Provost, Magistrates, and Council of the city of Edinburgh. The room, which is of most magnificent dimensions, aud celebrated for its fine fretted roof, was splendidly fitted up on this memorable occasion. At the upper end, where his Majesty was seated, wns placed a choir of stale, with a splendid canopy of crimson velvet; above were the royal arms, and underneath the letters G. R tastefully encircled with a golden wreath. His Majesty entered the room at about half- past six o'clock, the band playing " God save the King," and the company standing up to receive him. After dinner, " N011 Nobis, Domine" vvas song.— The Lord Provost then rose and said, " I have the honour of proposing the health of his Ma- jesty, who has this day honoured uswith his presence, thereby conferring a signal mark of favour on his good town of Edinburgh, which will never, never be obliterated from the memory of the present gener- ation.' 1— The toast was drank with three times three ; and fhe hall rung with the most enthusiastic plaudits. — Anthem 44 God save the King.,>— The toast was announced bv a flight of two rockets from Parlia- ment Square, followed almost instantly by the thunder ofa loyal salute from the Castle Calton Hill, Salis- bury Crags, and his Majesty's yacht in Leith Roads. His Majesty replied in nearly the following terms : — 44 My Lord Provost, mv Lords, and Gentlemen- It is impossible for me to express my feelings on the present occasion; and I should feel ashamed of my- self were I not to consider this to be one iff the proudest days of my life. I return you my warmest tl » s* t* ks f « > r y « > m- kindness this da,)', and for tfif very flattering attention I have experienced from the citizens of Edinburgh ever since my arrival iu Scot- land. I shall ever remember my reception among you, and say with truth, w ith fervour, arid wilh sin" cerity, that I want words adequately to express mv feelings."— Tlie Duke of York and the Army, and the Dukeof Clarence and the Navy, were given with three times three in succession, llie bond playing the Duke of York's March nnd Rule Britannia.— His Majesty again rose, and his attitude as before com- manded silence while he addressed the company as follows:—" I take this opportunity, my Lords, and Gentlemen, of proposing the health of the Lord Provost, Sir William Arhuthnot, Baronet, nnd the Corporation of Edinburgh."— Upon Iiis Majesty iinm. ing the Lord Provost by the title of Baronet, that officer dropped on his knee, and kissed the King's hand, held out to him at the moment. This gracious manner nf giving additional rank to the chief officer of Ihe corporation was also loudly applauded by the company, and his Majesty repeatedly bowed in ac- knowledgment.— The King soon after rose and said, " I have one more toast to give, in which I trust you will join me, aud it is— Health lo the Chieftains ami Clans, and GOD ALMIGHTY bless Ihe land of Cukes! Drink this three times three, gentlemen." — His Ma- jesty retired a little before nine o'clock, and was attended to his carriage by the Lord Provost, the Peers, the Lords iu Waiting, and the officers of his suite, bowing as lie passed along to the different noblemen and gentlemen, his Majesty himself hein^ loudly cheered.— The Lord Provost, on his retnri", was loudly applauded, nnd congratulated on his new dignity. He again gave " The health of his Majesty, who had lhat night honoured them with his presence, and » long, prosperous, and happy reign to ll" which was drank with acclamations God save the King was again sung.— The Lord Provost said thai lie had to propose the health of a Statesman, who was, he regrelted to sav, absent through iudisposi lion— lie meant Ihe Right Hon. Robert Peel, his Majesty's Principal Secretary for the Home Depart ment - a Statesman who executed the important d uties of ihe office which lie filled with as much honour lo himself as utility to his country. Mr. Peel's health nps drank with applause.— The health of Lord Melville, who was present, was given.— The health if the Duke of Hamilton was followed by a « peer I from his Grace, in which political feeling was intro- duced. Nonpplause followed it.— About leu o'clock company began to retire, and they broke up before tweUe. On Sunday forenoon Iiis Majesty attended divine service in the High Church, io which lie was ac- companied by the individuals of Iiis suite, escorle by tiie yeomen of the guard, and part of the Scots Greys. His Majesty aud su; te arrived in Iwo car- riages and six about eleven o'clock, aud returned a little before one. The windows nf his Majesty': carriage were up, and he leaned hack on Ihe seat fo: privacy. There were numbers of well- dressed people on the pavements, who lifted their hats as the royal carriage passed ; hut 110 cheering, or the slighles indecorum of any sort took place. The streets from Holyrood Palace were lined by the 3d Dragoon Guards. On entering llie church his Majesty pu inlo the hands of Principal Baird a sealed pneket which was marked u A donation of one hundred pounds from his Majesty," desiring that il might he added to the ordinary collection. The Lord P, ro vosl and Magistrates, and tbe Judges of the Courts of Session aud Exchequer, bad previously take their places, and the congregation had assembled a • 111 early hour. The Rev. Dr. Lamont, Moderator of the last General Assembly, preached au eloquent an" animated discourse from Colossians, chapter 3d, verse 4lli. " When Christ who is our life shall appear, then shall ye also appear with bim in glory." On Tuesday lust Iiis Majesty visited the Theatre Before his arrival every part ofthe house was filled to its utmost limits. Shortly before eight o'clock It Majesty arrived from Dalkeith House, where he had dined. His entry to tlie royal box had been made as elegant ns possible, glittering with ornaments and blazing with lights. The King wns lighted to tbe box by the Duke of Montrose, nnd Mr. Murray Ihe manager. His Majesty occupied n chair, fashioned throne- wise, in the centre of Ihe box; and around, and behind him, standing, were the Dukes of Mon- trose and Argyll, the Marquis ot Winchester, the Ear! of Fife, Lord Cnlhcart, l » rd Gravf*, nnd Lord Glenlyou. His Majesty was dressed nuher plainly, in Ihe undress uniform of a Field Marshal, hill looked remarkably well. On entering his box his Majesty's reception was eulhnsin& lic. The huzzas were countless, and nil liats and handkerchiefs were in requisition. At the halite moment, " God * ave the King" wns snog hy the whole performers, reinforced with many additional voices, and aided hy llu • udience. The applause at iis conclusion was loud and universal. His M. ijesly received these totes! » < t affection ond respect with Ihe usual kindness and grace, bowing around liiin with the utmost condes- cension and affability. When ihe play ( Rob RoV) bad concluded, Ihe audience called loudly for " God save the King," which, with an additional verse,- was again sung by ihe whole company, a large pro- portion of the audience joining hoth'in tbe ailthenv' and tlie chorus. Tlie cheering lhat followed appear, ed to make a powerful impression 011 the mind of tiie Sovereign. He bowed repeatedly to the audience, and retired fo his caVriitge ab'out eleven o'clock amidst renewed and thundering peals of loyal acl elamation. On Wednesday liis Majesty visited New. bailie Abbey, the neat of the Most Nobie the Martini* of Lothian. Thai fine regiment the Scots Greys atlracted a good deaf of nolice. In regimental ' orders, dated Dalkeith House, his Majesty desires Sir T Bradford to convey to Colonel Hankin liis " highest approba- tion, in commendation of the discipline of tlie regi- ment V hen employed iu attending Iiis Mirfesly." " if will be si- en bv the Gazette of Satin dav lliat Colonel Hankin bus received I lie honour of Knighthood 01) the occasion.

Great Cricket Maich, and Dreadful Accident, at Darnal.— Thc great Cricket March between fifteen Sheffield aud eleven Nottingham players, for which great preparations have latterly ' been making on thc new ground at Darnal, near Sheffield, commenced on Monday forenoon. The contest having excited a peculiar interest in and around the town, the concourse of spectators was proportion- ately great; never, perhaps, ou any occasion was witnessed an assemblage at once so numerous and respectable. Sheffield seemed almost to pour out the principal part of its population, thc roads bein" literally covered al! tbe morning with crowds hasf- ing to the scene of the expected enjoyment'. Little was it then suspected that before the expiration of the day, the. pleasure of it was to be dashed by one of the most afflicting accidents lhat we have h'ad to record for some time back. The playing com- menced ; the weather, with fhe exception" of one shower, was highly favourable; and all went 011 well, till about four o'clock, when a large extent of scaffolding, which had beeu fitted up on the ground near the road side, for the accommodation of several thousands of spectators, having nine tier of seats, and being near forty yards long, suddenly gave way, und precipitated its unfortunate tenants one over the other to the ground. Shrieks, screams, and groans rent the air on all sides ; and the scene of confusion which ensued was indescribably affect- ing. Every hand was instantly engaged in ex- tricating the sufferers ; every possible accommoda- tion offered ; and every vehicle put in requisition to convey them away to their respective homes. It is with painful feelings that we have to add, that two persons were killed on the spot, and between 40 and 50, more or less, maimed. We dare not vouch for our correctness, although we linve en- deavoured to gain thc best information we were able; but amidst so much distressing confusion, the extent of the mischief cannot with accuracy be yet ascertained, and even the names of Ihe parties we could not procure. Late last night 23 cases had been admitted to the infirmary, four or five of which were pronounced very dangerous.— Sheffield Ins. MR. CANNING.— On Friday week a dinner was given by the Canning Club to the Right Hon. George Canning, previous tt> his departure for India, at the York Hotel; Liverpool, John Glad- stone, Esquire, M. P. President, in the chair. The large room was tastefully decorated for thc occasion. The walls on cach side were spread with flags, bearing different aud appropriate de- vices, interspersed with festoons of laurel. I11 front of the orchestra was a transparency, with llie inscription " Canning and Independence," on both sides of which several splendid silk flags wi re grouped. Mr. Canning was loudly cheered on his arrival by a crowd of respectable persons collected in front of the hotel.— Conviviality and haimony reigned till a late hour, and the company te; aratcii highly gratified w ith thc festivities of the evening. Mr. Canning was entertained w'. tli a grand fare- well dinner, given bv his Constituents at Liverpo. 1 on Friday la1-!. In tbe course of the evening, ( ho Riaht Hon.

Ye dull sleeping mortals of every degree, Awake at the sound of the horn ! Ye sluggards a: ise, and to hunting with me, And snuff the fresh odour of morn. O'er mountains U vailies, thro' woodlands & dales And forests half hidden to sight, I'll lead, if irry argument with you prevails, I'll lead you to scenes of delight 1 llygeia shall train you to exercise bold, Ilygeia, ihe goddess of health ! Then hasten away o'er the wide- spreading wold, And laugh at the hoarders of wealth : What's gold ot the best but a phantom or toy, If health should its blessings deny ? Then hasten, and life's rosy vigour enjoy, Ilastfe, hasten, for reynard must die In courts or in cities can pleasure be found, Compared to the sports of the field ? Then rise, & away o'er the green- mantled ground— All pastime to hunting must yield. The ruddy complexion that crimsons the face, The peaoh- blushing glow on the cheek, proclaim the rich transports derived from the chase, And all that is charming bespeak. LLICFFIG, For the information of our Sporting Readers, we have extracted the following articles from the U RACING CALENDAR -." Rules of Horse- Racing. Catch Weights are, each party to appoint any person to ride without weighing. Give and Take Plates are, fourteen hands to carry a stated weight, all above, or under,- to carry txtro, or be allowed, the proportion of seven pounds to an i'neh. A Whim Plate, is weight for age, and weight for inches. A Post Match, is to insert the age of the horses in tiie articles, and to run any horse of that age, with- out declaring what horse till you come to the post to dart. A Handicap Match, is A, B, nnd C, to put an equal sum each into a hat; C, who is the handieapper, makes a match for A and B, who, when they have perused it, put their hands into their pockets, and draw them out closed, they then open them together, and if both have money iu their hands the match is confirmed ; if neither have money, it is no match. In both cases the handicapper draws nU the money out of the hat; but if one has money in his hand,- and tiie other none, then it is no match ; and he that has money in his hand is entitled to the deposit in the bat. The horse that has his head at the Ending Post first w ins the heat. Riders must ride their horses to the Winning Post tn weigh, and he that dismounts before, or wants weight, is distanced. If a. rider fall front his horse, and the horse is rode in by a person' that is sufficient weight, he will t; ik « place the same as if it had not happened, provided he go hack to the place where the rider fell. Horse plates fir shoes not allowed in the weight, llorses not entitled to start without producing a proper certificate of their age, if required, at the S I IIIE appointed in the articles, except where aged horses are included, and in that case a junior horse may enter without a certificate, provided he carry the same weight as the aged. For the best of the plate, where there are three heats run, the horse is second that wins one. For the best of the heats, the horse is second that beats the olher twice out of three times, though he doth not win a brat. A confirmed bet cannot he off without mutual consent. Either of the betters may demand stakes to he made, and on refusal declare the bet void. If a party be absent on the day of running, a public declaration of the bet may be made on the Course, and a demand whether any person will make Makes for tbe absent party ; if no person consent to rt, the bet may be declared void. Bets agreed to pay or receive in town, or any other particular place, cannot be declared off on the Course. At Newmarket, if a match he made for any parti- cular day in any Meeting, and the parties agree to change the day, all debts must stand ; but if run in a different Meeting, all bets made before the alter- ation are void. The person who lays the odds has a right to choose his horse, or the field. When a person has chosen his horse, the field is what starts against him, hut there is no field without one starts vvith him. Bets made in pounds are paid in guineas. If odds are laid without mentioning the horse before it is over, it must be determined as the bets were at the time of making it. Bets made in running are not determined till the piate is won, if that heal be not mentioned at the lime of betting. Where a plate is won by two heats, the preference of the horses is determined by the places tbey are in the second heat. Horses running on the wrong side of the post, and Hot turning back, are distanced. Horses drawn before the plate Is won, are dis- tanced. Harses are distanced if their riders cross or jostle. A bet made after the heat is over, if the horse betted on does not start, is no bet. When three horses have each won a heat, THEY ONLY must start for a fourth, and tbe preference between them will be decided by it, there being before no difference between them. No distance in a fourth heat. Bets determined, though the horse does not start, when the words " absolutely," " run or pay," " plav or pay," are made use of in betting. EXAMPLF I bet that Mr. Robinson's bl. h. Sampson absolutely wins the King's Plate at Newmarket, next Meeting; I lose the bet though be does not start, and win though he goes over the Course alone. In running of heats, if it cannot be decided which is first, the heat goes for nothing and they may all start again, except it be between two horses that had each won a heat. Horses that forfeit are the beaten horses, where it is run or pay. Bets made on horses winning any number of plates that year, remain in force till the first day of May. Money given to have a bet laid, not returned, if Dot run. Matches nnd bets are void on the decease of either part) before determined. objection having been made to C* s starting for thi third heat, C is entitled to the prize. CASE III. , The winner of a plate, whose horse had* distanced all tbe others, applied for the stakes oi4 entrance money, which was advertised to he paid to the second- best horse that won a clear heat— one of tlie distanced horses had won the first heat. Answer.— The winning horse cannot he deemed the second horse, and therefore is not entitled to the stakes, to which the owners of the other horses ( being distanced) have also no claim. CASE IV. For a plate, the horses came in ns follows :— Question, whether B was entitled to the stakes? A 2 0 1 1 B ( fell) 1 0 2 dis. C 3 0 3 dr. CASE V. A Gold Cup, & c. for horses that never won. A 1 B 2 C 3 It was decided that B, being distanced, was not entitled to the stake. The owner of B claimed on the ground of A's disqualification, he having the preceding year won a clear beat at Chelmsford, to entitle him, according to the articles, to the stakes or entrance- money. Answer.— The stewards are of opinion, that A was not disqualified, and consequently is entitled tothe cup, & c.— The term u winner," they conceive, ap- plies only to the horse that beats all the rest. CASE VI. An enquiry whether a horse having won a sweep- stakes of 23gs. each ( 3 subscribers) is qualified to run for a £ 50 plate, expressed to be for horses that never won plate, match, or sweepstakes, of that value ? Answer, by the stewards of the Jockey Club : That it has been the practice in estimating win- nings to consider the clear sum pained only, and con- sequently to exempt the stake of the proprietor ; the horse, therefore, which had won a sweepstakes of 46gs. only, viz. two stakes of 23gs. each, was not thereby disqualified for the £ 50 plate above- men- tioned. CASE VII. Mr. Baird having entered two horses for the King's plate at Newcastle,' in 1793, and won it with Sans Culottes, his other horse not starting— the owner of the second horse objected to his receiving the plafe, 011 the ground that he was disqualified by having entered two horses. The matter being referred to the stewards of tl Jockey Club, by bis Grace the Duke of Northum- berland, they determined that Mr. Baird was en- titled lo the plate. CASE VHf. A betted B that a mare should trot a mile in five minutes, in four minutes and a half, and four minutes ; all which it was stated she won with ease; but B, measuring the distance after the races were over, found it was short of a mile by four yards. The stewards of the Jockey Club, to whom this point was referred, determined that as no objection was made to the measure of the Course before starting, and the mare having performed the distance set out, aud not objected to, A won all the bets. CASE IX. In 1700, on a case referred to them, the stewards determined as follows;—" The receiver of a forfeit is not deemed, in our opinion, to be a winner of a race, unless specified to he so by a particular article." YORK ASSIZES. From the Rules and Orders ofthe Jockey Club, The forfeits of all p. p. bets to be paid according to the proportion in which the principals compromise their matches. All double bets considered as play or pay. That all bets depending between any two horse*, either in match, or sweepstakes, are null and void, if those horses become the property of one and the same person, or his avowed confederate, subsequent to the bets being made. That when any match is made, in which crossing and jostling are not mentioned, ihey shall be under- stood to he barred. That all bets between particular horses be null and void, if neither of the horses happen to be the winuer, unless specified to the contrary. Laws of Racing. NEWMARKET, 16tb May, 1816. Some disputes having arisen respecting the quali- fications of horses to run for particular races, as well in- regard to the lime when the certificates should be produced, as to the person by whom the qualification or disqualification should be proved, the Stewards of the Jockey Club, iu the hope of introducing a uni- formity of practice iu this respect, and with a view to prevent dispute*, declare it as their opinion, that when the qualification of any horse is objected to before starting, it is incumbent on the owner to pro- duce a certificate, or other proper document, to the Stewards, or Clerk of the Course, before the race is rnnrto prove the qualification of bis horse; and that if he shall start bis horse without so doing, he must be considered as disqualified ; and further, that their decisions on all cases referred lo them on this point, will be regulated accordingly. CASE I. " July 4, 1776. A Subscription of lOgs. each, for hunters that never won either plate, match, or sweepstakes, 12st. each; one 4- mile heat, & c. I'o be named on or be- | fore ihe of April, 1777, to the Clerk of the, &. c. See. The Stewards of Newmarket were requested to give their opinion— whether a horse having won a subscription on the 23*/ of April, 1777, was qualified to run for the above ? Answer.— The stewards are of opinion, that a horse being duly qualified at the day of nomination, is entitled to start. CASE II. A, B, and C run for a subscription, the best of heats. A wins ille first heat, B the second. C's rider, after saving his distance the second heat, dismounts between the distance- post and the end, but re- mounts, rides past the ending- post and weighs as usual ; starts aud wins fhe third heat, and weighs, without any objection being made. A, being second the third heat, in a short time afterwards demands the subscription ( uot knowing till then that C's rider had dismounted) and refuses to start for the fourth heat, which B and C run for, and C wins. Query— Which is entitled to the prize? Answer.— The Stewards arc of opiuion, that, no PEDESTRIAN ISM.— On Monday afternoon most remarkable feat of pedestrianism was at- tempted in the neighbourhood of Milksom Spa, by Mr. C New comb, of Bath, who undertook, for a considerable wager, to run nine miles and a half within the hour, which, notwithstanding the dust and extreme heat, he accomplished in a masterly style iu a minute and a half within the time.—- Devizes Gazette. On Wednesday last, a foot race for 14 guineas took place at Carlisle race- ground, between T. Huddleston, a blacksmith, and J. Campbell, a son of Ilibernia, by trade a bricklayer's labourer. The distance was five miles. Vulcan, at starting, was the favourite, three to two, being a known good one; while poor Pat was new on the turf. The two first miles were done under 11 minutes, the men passing each other alternately ; but the power of leading at will evidently rested with Pat. In the third round Vulcan was sadly in the wood, and resigned ; the sou of Erin continuing his speed, some of the by- standers told him not to distress himself, as his opponent had given in, when here- plied—" Arrah, my honey, where is the boy now ? I'am only just after coming to my spade and get ting under my wind."— He ran the five miles in less than 28 minutes, with apparent ease. He runs with a close firm body, whilst his antagonist saws and beats the air, which has a tendency to weaken the physical power rapidly. It is confidently as- serted, that Pat is the master of 10 miles within the hour. One Hundred Miles in Twelve Hours.— The Huntingdonshire galloway, 14 hands one inch, and six years old, the property of Mr. Charles Franklin, started on Friday morning at two o'clock, over an eight mile piece of ground near Biggles- wade, to perform the above great undertaking. It was for 1000 sovereigns, and was to be performed within six weeks from the 23d of July; to trot only. Heavy stakes were pending upou the issue, but the horse won by eight minutes and a half, and was never distressed. His rider ( Stanton) car- ried nine stone. The horse was baited on the 26th, 42d, and 65th miles, in small quantities, and fed well; and, if pushed with two riders, could have performed the distance in less time by an hour.— Mr. Aaron Gulley and Captain Braithwaite were umpires. A gentleman of the name of Billinghurst betted 50 guineas that he galloped over eight miles in 25 minutes, and he won it easily, having nearly a miuuie to spare. BEFORE CHIEF JUSTICE ABBOTT. APOTHECARIES' COMPANY V. BASTOW. Mr. Scarlett stated that this was an action tore- cover certain penalties incurred hy the defendant for having practised as an apothecary without having been examined by the Apothecaries' Company, or re- ceived the certificate required hy the provisions of an Act passed in the year 1815, which imposed a penalty of £ 20 on every instance in which a person not qualified ( according to the provisions of this statute) acted as an apothecary. The learned Coun- sel stated, that the object of this legislative measure was to prevent the extreme danger from having drugs prepared and administered by persons who were entirely ignorant of the properties and effects which ihey were calculated to produce, a protection which the lower classes of society stood more particularly in need of, because they were not competent to judge of a person's skill iu ibis respect, and were liable to be imposed upon by every ignorant pretender: such were the views for which this act was passed, and it was the same motives which influenced the Apothe- caries' 1 Company in the institution of this prosecution. Before a person can be licensed according to the provisions of this act, he must have something like instruction, and know something of the nature ofthe drugs he undertakes to administer, and must have a certificate of his fitness to undertake this important part of ihe medical department, and the necessity of such a provision for the public safety- is too obvious to need to be insisted upon. But as the provisions of this act were not intended to be retrospective, sons lo interfere with the practice of those already estab- lished in ihe profession, there was a clause inserted the act which exempts from its provisions all persons who were practising as apothecaries on or before the lst of August, 1815; but all persons be- ginning to practise subsequently to that period, are. liable to a penalty of £ 20 for every instance in which they so act, if they have not the certificate required by this act of parliament. That the defendant, who had been practising at Halifax among persons of a certain description, was in every respect incompetent would be evident from the short history of his life, which he would lay before the Jury, and it would be equally clear that he was not protected by the ex- ception to which he had referred. The defendant, in the year 1807, being then about 13 years of age, was hired as a stable boy hy a surgeon in the neighbour- hood of Halifax, in which situation he kept the stable, took care of the horses, rati errands, and did other menial offices, and might possibly have carried gallipots; but be might safely leave it to the Jury to say whether the mere carrying of medicines had any tendency to instruct him in the mode of their preparation. After remaining in this situation two three years, he was placed apprentice to a card- maker, until the25ih of April, 1815, and he continued working after that period for three years longer as a journeyman, and in the year 1820 be entered into the army as a common soldier, in wlrich capacity he re- mained until he set up business in Halifax ns an apothecary. It was evident from this statement that he could not have been practising as an apothecary since August, 1815, and equally clear that he could have had no means of obtaining any knowledge whatever of the profession be assumed. It was, therefore, a case equally within the spirit and letter of the act, which was* to prevent ignorant and un- educated persons from engaging in a profession from which the most dangerous and fatal effects might result to the lives and health of his Majesty's subjects. Mr. John Brierley stated, that he knows the de- fendant, who lived at Halifax, he was called Dr. Bastow ; witness had a kind of consumption upon rid he applied to Dr. Bastow, and stated to him his situation, who gave him some physic, which he called morning honey— the medicine which he was to take in the evening had no particular name. The Dr. also gave him some olher medicine which he was- to take at morning, noon, and night. Dr. Bastow did not visit the witness, who went to the Dr. for the medicines: one ofthe bottles lasted him about nine or ten days. The defendant made him a bill, which was discharged by liis master. Witness has not been under bis care since the. last spring. Witness, in his cross- examination by Mr. Holt, said that Dr. Bastow's medicines did not do him any good. Witness was recommended to Dr. Bastow by a young man. Mary Mitchell stated, that in consequence of the illness of her daughter, she applied in the spring of the present year to Dr. Bastow : her daughter had been previously attended by Dr. Joffett, but Dr. u Itninniv ivoon roenmnt on H p ri >. i « sj'.- lltlll innn the jury, because in this case tbe defendant hail evinced no want of skill in the profession which he had adopted.— The following witnesses were called for the defendant: James Briggs has known the defendant ever since he was a boy ; knew him in the year 1815, he was then living at Brighouse. Witness has known him lo visit as an apothecary ; he went up and down the village for this purpose; witness knew some children that were cured by him of an eruption in the skin, called the ring worm : witness said that the defend- ant attended the children three or four weeks; w itness does not know whether the defendant gave thein any medicines, but he applied an ointment which pro- duced the desired effect. In answer to a question hy Mr. Scarlett, said he never heard that it was a roasted cat. Mr. Mallinson knew the defendant in the year 1815; witness worked inthe same shop with him; witness has known children come to the shop and inquire for Dr. Ba9tow ; he lodged with John Firth, and he had then a few bottles and a stone mortar. Witness could not of his own knowledge speak to his having given any medicines, but it was said that he had cured many children of the ring- worm, aud he used to be called Dr. Bastow. The Chief Justice said it was perfectly ridiculous to pretend that a lad, working as a card- maker for fifteen or sixteen shillings per week, could be con- sidered as a practising apothecary within the mean- ing of that act, and the plaintiff was clearly entitled to a verdict, and would in strictness be entitled to as many penalties in as many instances as the defendant had been proved to have acted as an apothecary ; but the Secretary to the Apothecaries' Company, whose only object in this prosecution was to protect the public from the danger which arose from the practising of ignorant and uneducated persons, was content to take only a verdict for a single penalty. — The Jury immediately found a verdict for the plaintiff in one penalty of £ 20. SOUTH AMERICA. A traveller in this country describes the effect of these favoured regions upon the traveller, when first introduced to them, in the following eloquent remarks : Some poor wretch, in attempting to rob garden in Lyncombe Vale, Gloucestershire, late on Saturday night, or early on Sunday morning, w caught in a steel trap, and one of his legs must have been much lacerated, as there was a consider- able effusion of blood, and a shoe and part of a stocking left behind. There must have been several thieves in the party, as part of a wall was pulled down, and the wounded man must have been conveyed away, as the traces of blood were shortly lost. By a recent Act of Parliament, to regulate the granting of Alehouse Licences, every person ap- plying for a licence, is required to enter into a re- cognizance, himself in £ 20, with a sufficient surety in £ 20, or in case he should be unable from infirmity or other sufficient cause to attend the Justices, he must send two persons to be bound, each in the sum of £ 30, and the condition of the recognizance is, that be shall keep the true assize kin selling- bread and other victuals, beer and other liquors, and shall not fraudulently dilute or adulterate the same, and shall not use any pots or other measures that are not of full size. That he shall not knowingly permit drunkenness or tippling, nor get drunk himself in his house or premises, nor suffer gaming of any description, by journeymen, labourers, servants, or apprentices ; nor suffer, any bull, bear, or badger baiting, cock- fighting, or other such sport or amusement, nor suffer design- edly, men or women of notoriously bad fame, or dissolute girls and boys, to assemble in his house, & c. nor shall keep open his house, or permit any drinking or tippling, during the hours of Divine Service, on Sundays ; nor keep open his house during late hours of the night, nor early in the morning, but for the reception of travellers. A breach of these, regulations will subject the persons bound to forfeiture » f their reco° uizance. Bastow having oeen recommended as » skilful man, she applied to him: he told her that her daughter vvas in a consumption, and be gave her* a small bottle, from which she was to pour one tea- spoon- full, which vvas to be mixed with double the quantity of the best brandy, and taken every night and morning — her daughter continued to take this medicine for three weeks or a month; he also ordered her to apply a plaister, composed of vinegar, mustard, and ginger, and apply it to the soles of her feet— and a plaister composed of honey to her breast; he also gave her four powders and one bottle of white medi cine, which were taken by her daughter, who, she said, received no benefit from these various pre- scriptions. Witness said she never paid him any thing for his medicines. Joseph Morton knows Dr. Bastow— applied to him for his advice, who told him he had a liver complaint — gave him a bottle of medicine which he said would do him good, and for which the witness paid him two shillings. Dr. Bastow took the witness up stairs, where he had a kind of a shop. Witness saw some bottles and different things. The medicine he gave him vvas not very strong, but it was very good to take. Dr Bastow hail been recommended to him as a very skilful man, who had performed many won- derful cures. Witness, on his cross- examination, said there were a good many bottles iu the room, and it looked a bit like a doctor's shop. Air. Simeon Fryer knows the defendant; he came when he was about thirteen years of age to bis father, who was an apothecary at Raistriek, as a table boy ; his business was to take care of the horses and run errands; he continued iu lus father's service until the year 1810, when he went to Mr. Goldthorp's to learn the business of a card- maker; he could read, but does not know whether he could write or not. Witness, on his cross examination, said that the defendant was occasionally employed iu his father's laboratory in the more laborious parts of the business, such as braying in tbe mortar, & e.: he was a diligent boy, and couducted himself with great propriety Mr. John Goldthorp is a card- makerat Brighouse : the defendant came to liis father in the year 1810 as an apprentice, to learn the business of a card maker, and continued in that capacity until the year 1815, when he served his father as a journeyman in the same business, until the year 1818. Witness, in his cross- examination, said that the defendant occupied some portion of liis time iu making medicines and visiting sick persons.— Witness has known persons come tothe shop to consult him, and upon those occasions the de- fendant used to go the door. Witness has known per- sons cometo him in the year 1815. The defendant's ap- prenticeship expired iu the month of April 1815, and lie then went into lodgings- defendaut spent most of his time in the shop, in the business of a card- maker; defendant went into the army in March, 1820, and was discharged in the May following. Mr. Holt addressed the Jury on the part of the de- fendant.— lie said that the act under which the de- fendant was prosecuted was at variance with the liberal maxims and policy of the age, which in all olher respects left every man at liberty to employ his talents as genius or inclination might prompt. The professed object of that act was to prevent the mischief which might arise from the administration of medicines by persons grossly ignorant of their nature and effects; but in this ease no ignorance or want of skill bad been proved against the defendant, who, for ought that appeared in evidence, had ac- quitted himself most satisfactorily ; for though he had not received tbe advantages of a learned educa- tion, yet if he was a sharp, active, clever boy, he might have acquired, during his residence withjMr. Fryer, much useful practical knowledge, and which he might have improved and matured during his re- sidence at Mr. Goldthorp's. The Chief Justice here remarked that they were uot trying the skill of the defendant, hut whether he had practised as an apothecary without having the certificate required by the act. Mr. Holt admitted the propriety of the remark of his Lordship, but said lie bad insisted upon that point merely as introductory to what was his proper defence to this action, which was, that the defend- ant had practised as an apothecary previous to the lst of August 1815 ; for the act npon which this prosecu- tion vvas founded, expressly exempted from its operat- ions all persons who were practising as apothecaries' before that period ; and he should he able to lay evi- dence before the jury to shew that this was tbe case with the present defendant ; and he was sure the jury would be inclined to judge liberally in the pre- sent case, for if their verdict should be in favour of the prosecution it would blight and annihilate all his prospects and he a death blow to all his hopes, and be was the more emboldened to ask for a verdict from HEREFORD ASSIZES.— The King v. Garratt. — Mr. JERVIS stated that this was an Indictment on the prosecution of Mr. Harris, attorney, in Hereford, against Mr. John Garratt, charging" the defendant with wilful and corrupt perjury in an answer to a bill iu Chancery which was filed by Mr. Harris in Trinity Term, 1821, for a discovery and for an injunction against three several actions which were threatened to be brought against Mr. Harris by Mr. Hornyhold, Mr. Matthews, and Mr. Shaw, the holders of several promissory notes and one bill of exchange accepted by Mr. Harris, that 40 instances of perjury were assigned, hut that the principal question the jury would have to try would be whether from November, 1817, to November or December, 1819, the defendant was at all concerned ia certain speculations, in the Funds, on which speculations very great losses were sustained— the defendant having sworn that from November, 1817, he ceased to have. any thing to do with those specu- lations, and having also sworn that all the specula- tions were made by Mr. Harris onlv and in which he ( Mr. Garratt) had nothing to do. ' That he should prove the parties had been concerned not jointly but separately in buying and selling stock for time, to a very large amount, upon which considerable losses had been sustained between November, 1817, and November, 1819. Mr. Jervis then stated the origin of the speculations, the various accounts of profit and loss, and the ultimate loss, which he stated he should be able to prove ; that Mr. Harris was only liable to the amount of £ 8000, the defend- ant being bound to provide for the remainder, it being on speculations entirely his own ; but that Mr. Garratt had got the promissory notes and bill which had been alluded to from Mr. Harris, and had handed them ever to the present holders to be put in suit to compel Mr. H. to pay the whole sum. That in fact he should be able to shew that such notes were renewals of each other.— Mr. Jervis attributed no blame whatever to Mr. Bodenham and the late Mr. Phillips, the transactions being kept completely secret from them by the defendant, and proceeded to detail entries and alterations in the bank books and banker's pass- book, to show the concealment which he stated had been contrived on the part of the defendant, to keep the transaction from the knowledge of his partners in Bodenham's bank. The evidence for the prosecution bore out in all its details the opening of Mr Jervis, and a great variety of letters from the defendant in the name of himself and partners to Messrs. Barber, stock brokers in London, were produced, by which it appeared that he had directed them to buy or seli so much stock for the banking firm and so much FOR THEIR FRIEND MR. HARRIS ; some of these letters wrere written at the time when Mr. Harris was in London, and giving the brokers directions for himself. The books of Messrs. Bodenham and Co. - were debited and credited to Mr. Harris in one way, while the pass book, though containing the same totals on each transaction, were debited and credited in another ; one sum of profit however was entirely omitted in the pass- book The Defendant's Counsel required the whole of his answer in Chancery to be read, which states that after two stock transactions with Mr. Harris he declined going further in so dangerous a specu- lation, and that . all the subsequent dealings were solely Mr. Harris's. After the examination of evidence, which occu- pied the attention of the Court for nearly ten hours, Mr. PULLER, for the defendant, contended the evidence given by Mr. Harris was not sufficiently confirmed to enable the Jury to find a verdict against the defendant, and stated that it was diffi- cult to believe that the prosecutor could have given bills under the circumstances that gentleman had stated, or that he could have signed the authority for the transfer of the balance in blank. That as to the letters, they were meant as a blind to Messrs. Barber, that the entries in the books were meant as a blind to Messrs. Bodenham and Co. aud upon these grounds the Learned Gent, contended the defendant was entitled to a verdict. Mr. Justice BAYLEY, in a luminous charge, said that it was the duty of all in a Court of Justice to dismiss from their minds all they had heard else- where, and to look at the evidence in the case. Ilis Lordship stated that the Jury must be satisfied that the defendant swore falsely and corruptly before they could find a verdict of guilty ; that if he swore falsely be must have done it corruptly, as he knew what the facts were. Ilis Lordship proceeded to state at considerable length the general nature of the case, and detailed the evidence to the Jury, placing considerable stress on the letter of the defendant to his brokers, in which the accounts of the banking house and Mr. Harris were separated, also on the manner of Mr. Harris giving the notes and bill, and signing the authority for the transfer. The Jury retired about eleven o'clock at night, taking the documentary evidence with them, and returned into Court at a few minutes after three in the morning, finding a Verdict of Not Guilty.— The Court remained crowded till the Verdict was returned.— Counsel for the plaintiff', Messrs. Jervis, Taunton, and Cross. Attornies, Messrs. Davies, Banks, and Cheese.— Counsel for the Defendant, Messrs. Puller, Campbell, and Russell. Attorney, Mr. Bollock. [ In consequence of tbe pressure of business, the cause of Garret t>. Harris, stands as a remanet for next Assizes.] From The Mount Sion ( Georgia) Missionary.•— Such a phenomenon has taken place, and is still progressing in the county of Jefferson, near the Warren line, on a hill near the Ogecheo River, as is not common in this part ofthe world. About six or eight weeks ago, the earth on a steep hill- side was discovered to be sinking and dividing asunder to the extent of about one acre. A Gen- tleman in the neighbourhood of this scene, told me that he went round it and 011 it about three weeks ago, and very distinctly heard the cracking and snapping of the roots. A man of the same neigh, bourhood, who was my pilot to this eventful place 011 the 25th of June, 1 822, told me that it was pro- gressing fast. When I was favoured with a view of it, 1 think it had extended over abont two acres. On the most elevated part of the hill, the earth has sunk about 12 feet perpendicular, while on the lower side il has risen six or eight feet above tbe surface. Over about one acre the timber has been prostrated on the earth, forming a ruinous appearance from its having been thrown in every direction. On the other part some of the trees are fallen; whilst the remnant are tilted in different directions, with a number of cracks of different sizes, and running various courses. There large crack extending itself along the side of the hill, indicating thereby the further progress of this strange eruption. Previous to this event there was a good spring of water flowing from the troubled part of the earth ; the water still issues from the " There is something so great, so powerful, in the impression made by nature iu the climate of the Indies, that after an abode of a few months we seemed to have lived there during a long succession of years. In Europe, the inhabitant of the north and of the plains feels an almost similar emotion when he quits, even afler a short abode, the shores of the Bay of Naples, the delicious country between Tivoli and tbe Luke of Nemi, or the wild and solemn scenery of the Higher Alps and the Pyrenees. Yet every where under the temperate zone, ihe effects of the physiognomy of the vegetables afford little con- trast. The firs and the oaks tbat crown the moun- tains of Sweden have a certain family air with those which vegetate in the fine climates of Greece and Italy. Between Ihe tropics on the contrary, iu the lower regions of both Indies, every thing in nalure appears new and marvellous. In Ihe opeu plains, and amid Ihe gloom of forests, almost all the remem- brances of Europe are effaced ; for it is the vegeta- tion that determines Ihe character of a landscape, and acts upon our imagination by its mass, the contrast of its forms, and the glow of its colours. In proportion as impressions are powerful and new, they weaken antecedent impressions, and their strength gives them Ihe appearance of duration. I appeal" to those who, more sensible of the beauties of nature than of the charms of social life, have long resided in the torrid zone. How dear, bow memorable during life is the land where they first disembarked! A vague desire to revisit that spot roots itself in their minds to the most advanced age. Cumana and iis dustv soil nre still more frequently present to my imagination than all the wonders of the Cordilleras. Beneath the fine sky of ihe south, Ihe light, and the magic of the aerial hues, embellish a land almost destitute of vegetation. The snn does not merely enlighten, it colours the objects, nnd wraps them in a thin vapour, which, without changing Ihe trans- parency of the air, renders its lints more harmonious, softens the effecls of the light, and diffuses over nature that calm which is reflected iu onrsouls. To explain this vivid impression, which the aspect of Ihe scenery in the two Indies produces, even ou coasts where there is little wood, il will he sufficient tn recollect, Ihat the beauty of the sky augments from Naples towards the equator, almost'as much us from Provence toward the South of Italy." In a description of the gigantic forests in those regions, ihe same traveller observes, " The manner in which Ihe trees are disposed is very remarkable. We first find bushes of suuso, forming a kind of hedge four feet high ; and appearing as if ihey had been clipped hy the hand of mail. A copse of cedars, hrazilleltoes, and lignum . itic, rises behind this hedge. Palm- trees are rare ; we saw only a few scattered trunks of the thorny piritu and corozo. The large quadrupeds of those regions, tile tig- ers, tapirs, and pecaris, have made openings in the hedge of sausos which we have just described. Through These Ihe wild animals pass, when Ihey come to drink at the river. As they fear hut little llie approach of 11 boat, we had tbe pleasure of viewing them pace slowly along the shore, lill they disappeared in ihe forest, which they entered bv one of the narrow passes lefl here and there between Ihe hushes I cou. less Ihat Ihese scenes, which w ere often repealed, had ever for me a peculiar attraction. The pleasure they excite is not owing solely lo the interest, whieh the naturalist lakes in the objects of his study ; it is con- nected wilh a feeling common to all men, who have heen brought up in the habits of civilization. You find yourself in a new world, in Ihe midst of untamed and savage nature. Now it is the jaguar, the beau tiful panther of America, tbat appears upon the shore; and now the liocco* with its black plumage and its tufted head, Ihat moves slowly along llie sausos. Animals of the most different classes succeed each other. ' Esse como en el ParaisoJf said our Pilot, an old Indian of the missions. " The night was calm and serene, and there was a beautiful moonlight. The crocodiles were stretched along the shore. They placed themselves in such a manner as to be able to see tbe fire. We thought we observed, Ihat its splendour attracted them as it altiacls fishes, crayfish, and other inhabitants nf the water. The Indians showed us the traces of three tigers in the sand, two of which were very young A female had no doubt conducted her little ones to drink at the river. Finding 110 tree on the strand, » e . truck our oars in the ground, anil to these we fastened our hammocks. Every thing passed tran- quilly till eleven at night: and then a noise so terrific arose in the neighbouring forest, that it was almost impossible to close our eyes. Amid the cries of so many wild beasts howling at once, the Indians discriminated such only as were heard separately. These were the little soft cries of the sapajous, the moans ofthe alouates, the bowlings of the tiger, the coiigunr, or the American lion without mane, the pecan, and the sloth, and the voices of thecurassoa, Ihe parraka, and some other gallinaceous birds. When the jaguars approached Ihe skirt of Ihe forest, onr dog, which till then had never ceased barking-, began lo howl and seek for shelter benealh our liain mocks. Sometimes, afler a long silence, the cry of the tiger came from Ihe tops of the trees; and > 11 this ease it was followed by the sharp and long whistling of the monkeys, which appeared to flee from the danger that threatened tlieni. " I notice every circumstance of these nocturnal scenes, because, being recently embarked on the liio A pure, we were not yet accustomed to them. We heard the same noises repealed, during the course of whole months, whenever the forest ap- proached the bed of the rivers. The security dis- played by the Indians inspires travellers with confidence. You persuade yourself w ith them that the tigers are afraid of fire, and do nol attack a man lying in his hammock. These attacks are in fact extremely rare; and, during a long abode in South America, I remember only one example of a Lluuern, who was found torn in his hammock opposite the Island of Achaguas. When the natives are interrogated on the causes of this tremendous noise made hy the beasts of the forest at certain hours of the nijht, they reply gaily, ' they are keeping the feast of the full moon.' " In the neighbourhood of ihe Rio Tisnao, he and his friends were shewn a hut which had been the scene of a very extraord; nary adventure thai hap- pened to Iheir host at Calabozo, Don Miguel Cousin, and which strikingly illustrates the character of the country in those parts of the Llanos that are in the neighbourhood of dried rivers. Sleeping with one of his friends on a bench covered with leather, Don Miguel was awakened early in the morning by violent shnkes, nnd a hor- rible noise. Clods of earth were thrown into the middle of the hut. Presently a young crocodile, two or three feet long, issued from under Ihe bed, darted at a dog that lay on the threshold of the door, and, missing him in the impetuosity of his spring, ran towards the beach to attain the river. On examin- ing the spot where the barbacon, or bedstead, was placed, the cause of ihis slrunge adventure was easily discovered. The ground vvas disturbed to a consi- derable depth.- ll was dried mud, that had covered the crocodile in that state of lethargy, or summer sleep, In which many of the species lie during the absence of the rains amid the Llanos. The noTse of men and horses, perhaps the smell of Ihe dog, had awakened Ihe crocodile. The hut being placed at the edge ofthe pool, and inundated during part of Ihe year, the crocodile had no doubt entered, ut the time ofthe inundation of the savannahs, bv Ihe same opening hy which Mr. Pozo saw it go out." 1 " Crax alector, the peacock pheasant; c. pauxi, the cashew bird." f " It is just as it was ill Paradise." MANCIIESTERMEETINC.— In our last Journal we adverted to the Rixcc Radicales of Hunt and Johnson, in proof of Ihe extreme meanness and penury of the radical faction. Johnson's letter is, however, so amusing and important, Ihat we must again recur to it. The history of Hunt's proceed- ings, in 1819, forms Ihe most perfect manual ia the science of petty finance, with which we are acquainted. In this mystery Jeremiah Diddler seems to have been but a type of the Lord of the Manor of Glastonbury; whithersoever Hunt travels, wheresoever lie resides, some one else is sure to pay the cost of his maintenance; andcairiage, coach- hire, diet, law expences, apparel, servants' wages, aud washing, all are defrayed from some foreign fund The Champion of Reform, as it seems he called himself, disdained lo carry a purse. His servant arrived at Manchester naked; having suffered a disaster we suspect as unreal as that, which according to the author of " Puss in Boots," reduced the Lord Marquis of Carrabas to the same primitive condition ; he was clothed, fed, and paid by Johnson, and upon a quarrel with his master, Bob is restored to Middleton Cottage, at the proper charge of Ihe same easy dupe, carrying away with him, doubtless from inadvertence, a comfortable supply of Mis. Johnson's liuen. There are a hundred whimsical knaveries of the same kind imputed in the book, which we must pass over; but there is one stroke of economy 011 Hunt's part so exquisitely ludicrous that we cannot omit again noticing it. Hunt, during his abode with Johnson, for some weeks, could easily reconcile his conscience to wine and " good TAXED tea;" dining at Mr. Bryant's or at Carlile's, or with Sir R. Phillips, he vvas as little embarrassed by compunctious yisitings at discussing the EXCISED juice of the grape; but when he comes to ac- knowledge the civilities of his friends, by a reci- procal hospitality, he gravely explains that hit principles will not permit him to offer any thin"- but water, to assist in the digestion of what John- son calls a " bull- beef steak." It need scarcely be added tbat his hospitality was never vexed by a second treat. What wc would, however, direct our readers more particular attention to in John- son's letter, is the following paragraph, which must remove all doubt as to Ihc TREASONABLE CHARACTER of the meeting of the 16th August 1819:— ' " Now, Sir, you recollect a parcel, containing, among other things, a letter, which I received oh the morning of the 16th of August. This letter, and this parcel, were from Dr. Watson, YOUB QUONDAM FRIRND. After reading it I intended to destroy it, and the contents of the parcel too : but just at the moment that I was about to do this I was called upon for something, and the parcel and letter were forgotten, and left to remain entire. You know the contents of this letter, for you read it. It alluded iu very PARTICULAR language to the soldiers, and to ONE regiment wbich was then in Manchester. On the very day after the examin- ation before mentioned, I found means to convey a note to Mrs. Johnson, unknown to anv officer ofthe prison, or, in fact, any body else but the person who took it. This note expressed a desire, that the letter and parcel above alluded to should be immediatelv destroyed ; that mv other paperi should be examined aud removed ; and that another noto might be sent back, to assure ine that these thing* were d ,( ie. I had, a day or two before this, made an esper ment on the t . rnkey, bv ofiering him some money if he would convey to my brother s note unknown to the keeper, which he promised tr> do ; I gave him one of no importance, and as I had then found means to shoot the bolt of lr. y cell- door, which gave me the power of looking over a. great portion of the area within the prison- walls ; and, as I did this when he left me, and watched him through the yard, I saw him showing mv letter to the keeper. I kept my own secret; but'I placed no more confidence in him. This gave risa to Wheeler, of the " Manchester Chronicle," saying- I had offered to bribe the turnkey to allow me to escape. My note, by the stranger, got safely- delivered into the hands of my brother ; be imme- diately attended lo its contents ; and in the short spaec of an hour, I received a note from my wife saying every thing I wished was done. Now' monster of ingratitude '. you knew all this, and vet you thought 1 could not make a plain statement of this fact without betraying the individual to whom I owed every thing. I thank heaven you do not know the man ! And you never will know him Were it possible to take his life for this, and you acquainted with him, his life would not be worth a Number of your Memoirs; and, excepting yourself I know of nothing on this globe more worthless." ' AWFUL OCCURRENCE.— About four o'clock in the afternoon of yesterday ( Monday), the village of Saint Nicholas, in the Isle of Thanet, was visited with one of the most tremendous storms of thunder and lightning ever known in the memory of the oldest inhabitant. In the course of the storm two labouring men, named George Bedingfield and Richard Johncock, who were at work in a field near the village, were instantaneously struck dead by the electric fluid, which was observed to descend to the earth within two feet of Bedingfield, whose clothes were torn to pieces, and his body rendered a shocking spectacle; his head being dreadfully burnt, also one of his legs. The body of Johncock was also much discoloured and blackened. They were bolh married men, and besides a wife, John- cock has left six children; and what adds lo the calamity his wife had been delivered of the young- est only a few hours. Two olher persons were knocked down and injured at the same momeiit. The bodies were conveyed to the church to await FATAL AND LAMENTABLE MISTAKE.—( From The Lincoln Mercury)— A melancholy sentiment prevails throughout this city on account of a most unfortunate circumstance which took place earlv on Tuesday morning last ( 20th inst). The following are the particulars:—" The female servants of Mr". J. li. Cnttill, merchant, of Nevvland. were up wash-' ing-, and helween twelve and two o'clock they were alarmed hy voices in the yard, and by an attempt to open ihe kitchen yard door. The fears cf the servants being heightened by the circumstance of several merchants' counting- houses having heen robbed in the same neighbourhood a few days before Mr. Cuttill, and his servant- man, George Smith', were called up :— the latter jumped out of bed, hurried down stairs half asleep, and was retnrnino- aoatn up stairs, when he was met hy his master, who supposing- him lie a robber that had broken into tlie the bouse, spoke to bim under that impression. The servant, under the still stnpifying. drowsiness, did not return any answer, but continued to advance towards his master, which established Ihe impression in Mr. C s mind thai he was one of the robbers, nnd in an instant he received two or three wounds from a sword which Mr. C. had seized in his alarm. Upon discovery of each other, the scene which ensiled begg- ars description. The master was in the deepest agony for the injury committed upon a faithful and highly- prized servant; and Ihe servant equally as much affected by his master's distraction, as by' his own painful situation. The wounded man was- immediately removed lo bed; Mr Bool and Mr. Snow were called up, and remained in constant attendance, administering every relief tbat surgery and medicine could afford, but without effect; the young man lived till four o'clock on Wednesday morning, and then died resigned, exonerating his. master, and declaring- that any blame w hich them was rested entirely with himself, in not returning an answer when spoken to, and which he attributed ton panic that had made him incapable of uttering a word. It seems that the circumstance ofthe servants sitting- up to wash, vvas unknown lo Mr. Cuttill; and when he was aroused by the alarm of the house being- attempted, he in going down stairs passed a window which gave view of the kitchen, Ihe yard. See. and seeing the glimmer of a light from the' kitchen, and clothes iu a baskel in the yard, be immediately concluded ihat thieves were in ihe house packing UR articles to remove. This idea was further impressed upon his mind as he drew nearer lo the kitchen, by hearing the approach of foot- steps, when unfor- lunately George Smith met him in a dark pessage on the return to his bed room, and stupor prevenling his reply to the challenge, ' Yon're one of the men,! Mr. Cuttill imagined he was meditating some attack, and slabbed him several limes in the abdomen before ihe mistake was discovered. The wounds were inflicted with an old rusty cane sword ; and it IS remarkable that a few monlhs hack the curiosity of a visitor had induced the drawing of it oui of'tlip case, which was effected with considerable difficulty from its having rusted very fast in. Il is hardly necessary to point the universal sympathy bv re- ferring to the acule feelings of llie unhappy and unintentional perpetralor of ihis calamity ; indeed it is impossible to describe the state of mind in which Mr. Cuttill has been since the moment when the mistake was discovered.
