Exempt from the Expences of Lam- suits, and also from the Sacrifice of an enormous Commission to Agents, to which some New Offices submit, to induce them to canvass for Business, great Accumulations have been made In these. Persons who now insure, participate equally with the original Members. RETURNS of 25 and 20 per Cent, in Consequence, have been INVARIABLY PAID TO ALL PERSONS who have continued insured seven Years, upon ANNUAL, as well as upon septennial Policies, and whether Ihey have heen Claimants for Losses, or otherwise—£ 30,000 have been returned in this Way to about 20,000 Persons insured, within the last eight Years— nn important Advantage which no other Insurance Office existing has afforded. Acting on ihese Principles so many Years, in uninterrupted Harmony and unrivalled Success, il is not surprising that the'business of the COUNTY FIRE OFFICE should augment in a Degree altogether unprecedented— an enlightened PUBLIC naturally preferring Security and Benefits, which have been long approved and en- joyed, to novel ill defined Schemes aud untried Promises.

UNION OP TKF. AMKRICAN LAKES WITH THE ATLANTIC OCEAN.— A New York Paper says, " T'he magnificent work, which is to render New York one of the most flourishing and power- ful States, of the same extent of territory, that has ever flourished in the long history of Empires, goes nohlv on to completion. A few months more, and Ihe Grand Western Canal will causc our inland seas and the ocean to mingle tlieir great waters. Ten thousand men, or abont that number, are now employed in the unrivalled enterprise— the offspring of the bold and masculine policy of our present Chief Magistrate.— VVe have just been informed that a canal is to be cut from Providence ( Rhode Island) lo Worcester, in Ihe Stale of Massachusetts, the distance being about 40 miles. We deem this canal to be of great importance to the city of New York. It will increase her com- merce, and hasten her on, with olher combining circumstances, to that destiny, when she will stand the London of llie New World, and among the most powerful commercial emporiums that have ever arisen and flourished in any period of society." LAND IN AMERICA.— As a matter of curiosity to our readers, we may mention, that 3,020 acres of land in the United Stales, situate on the Chip, pawav river, about nine miles from the river Mississippi, in Carver's Tract, l> elow the falls of St. Antony, above Birkbcck's settlement, in Monlsou's manor, where a steam- boal passes every fortnight, was sold on Wednesday, at Garraway's, by Mr. Mitchell, in two lots, at Is. per acre. A specimen of the palm- tree cordage, recently invented iu North America, has been sent over to Liverpool from New York.

POOR RATE.— We are glad to hear that lists of the paupers belonging to our Charity Hall have been printed. VVe hope they. will be in immediate C( vc. ulutioi).

At the Rochester and Chatham races, a laun- dress, residing in Ordnance- row, Brompton, who was rather deaf, was near the winning- chair, when Mr. Holdaway, of the Five Bells, Perry- street, in his anxiety to get into the ranks, turned his horse suddenly, and perceiving the danger of the poor woman, called out to her ; but in her alarm to escape, she came in contact with the horse, and Ihe road being on a declivity, she was knocked down, and the wheel went directly over her head. She was killed 011 the spot. The horror of the sccne is better imagined than described. Mr. Holdaway fianticly exclaimed that he would surrender to the laws; but Dr. Bryant, one of the stewards, who witnessed the accident, undertook for his appear- ance. The deceased has left a husband and six children, who were maintained principally bv her exertions. A party of the East India Company's regiment were appointed to keep the ground the first day of the Races, but unfortunately a serious affray took place between them and some country- men, in which one of the latter was dangerously wounded, and was laken to Gillingham poor- house with no hope of recovery. Three of the soldiers are in custody; and the Stewards declined Ibe services of the corps on the second day. The Crown and Anchor Tavern booth, 70 feet long, was completely demolished on Thursday night liy the violence of the tempest which took place that evening; and the poor waiters, who were left in charge, and would have slept there, were obliged lo seek shelter from the inclemency of the " pitiless storm" under the ramparts. O11 Saturday se'nnight, about five o'clock in the afternoon, a fire broke out iu a cottage at Water- beach, Cambridgeshire, and such was the rapidity ofthe flames, that in the short space of 50 minutes the dwellings of seven families were burnt to thc ground. By this unfortunate accident a consider- able part of the furniture and wearing apparel of the inmates, together with a barn, a rick of fodder, a cart, and other articles, were destroyed. The fire is supposed to have been occasioned by care- lessness.— Stamford News. At the late audit of Mr. Winteringham, of Sloothbv, he very handsomely made his North and South Kelsey tenants a reduction of upwards of 30 percent, upon his year's rental.- Ltnco/ rt Mrrcnro. The singular coal- mine at Bovev, eight miles from Moreton, has been sunk in lillle more than half a century to the depth of about 73 feet, displaying immense layers of timber, dispersed horizontally, stratum super stratum. The up- permost trunks still exhibit bark in a state little al- tered, and their own substance completely ligneous. Beneath, the wood appears more compacted to- gether, and yet lower, the inasses resemble jet or kennel coal. Here is most curiously opened to view the gradual transmutation of Ihe vegetable to the mineral character. BOTANY.— Since the discovery of the New World, onr Eugiish gardens have produced 2345 varieties of trees and plants from America, and upwards of 1700 front Ihe Cape of Good Hope, iu addition io many thousands which have been brought from China, the East Indies, New Hull 111), various parts of Africa, Asia, and Europe, until thc list of plants now cultivated in this country exceeds 120,000 varieties. In a conversation which a short time since took place upon the wonderful jfart various application s of steam, an Irish Gentleman present, who had just arrived in England, suddenly exclaimed," I l* s quite entirely past all belafe; by Ibe Powers, I'll ho 110 way surprised to find myself? oing a hunting some morning ou my own taykestle!" LONDON— SATURDAY. The Gazette contains an account of the cere- mony of the baptism of Princess Augusta Caroline Charlotte Elizabe th Mary Sophia Louisa, daughter of his { loyal Highness the Duke of Cambridge, Governor- General of Hanover, and of her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge, Landgravine and Princess of Hesse. Ou the 25th of July, there was such a terrible stonn of wind, rain, lightning, and hail of enorm- ous size, at Venice, that, besides the damage done to houses, shipping, & c. nearly 200 persons lost their lives.— Great quantities of the hail stones weighed frr » R? / ounces to Ilh, each. A F| aiiders mail arrived this morning, with papers from Brussels to the 5th inst. They con- tain fhe following extract of a letter from Corfu, dated July 25 : — The accounts from the Continent of tbe 16th of this mouth inform us that a post of 30 Franks, en- eamped at the village of Pern, near Arta, was sur- prised and surrounded by the Turks. They were . taken to Aria, where the barbarians cut off their ears and uosfs, and pni out their eyes, and sent them hack in Ihis condition to the camp of the Greeks, who, inflamed with anger at the sight, fell upon the Mahometans, aud retaliated by cutting in pieces 340 p risone; s. " While these scenes of horror were passing in the south of Epirus, Mark Botzaris, issuing from the mountain of Suli, penetraied by the plateau of Joan nina, aud overran part of Calzana Choria, from which be drove the Turks, who escaped only by embarking on the lake to return to the fort of Joannina. After the taking cf Athens, the Greeks, having learnt tbe massacres at Scio, are said to have reta- liated, by putting to death all the Turks, New York Papers to the 17th last state, that a disorder has made i. ts appearance in that city, which is ascertained to be the yellow, or malignant fever; but hy early attention, and very judicious precautions, it has been confined to the quarter in tthich it first appeared. The Sierra Leone Royal Gazette of the 15th of June,' contains interesting details of the successful attack of the boats of the Iphigenia on the Slave traders in the Bonny, in June last. The result of the enterprizc was worthy of tbe gallantry displayed in its execution. It effected the liberation of no less than 1615 of our fellow. creatures. In less than three months, more than 2000 Negroes had heen rescued from the cruel grasp of French, Spanish, and Portuguese dealers in human flesh, and thus saved from perpetual slavery. MINISTRY.— Several projects have been pub fished hy our contemporaries respecting the arrange- ment rendered, unfortunately, indispensable by the lamented death of the Marquis of Londonderry. Without any more particular allusion to them, we can only say, that no definitive arrangement has yet taken place.— Courier. THE FUNDS — It has been rumoured within the last day or two, that the Directors of the Bank of England are about to reduce the interest on bank stock, from 10 to per cent, per annum, but that tbe holders will he remunerated by a large bonus. The funds opened this morning with a very elastic appearance and in consequence of a great number of speculators having changed their accounts, the market improved nearly \ per cent, on the quota- tions of Saturday. The new 4 per cents, have been sold as. high as 100g. The prospect of a bon being- declared on hank stock, which would occa- sion a considerable demand for money stock, is tbe principal cause of the favourable change. Large nets have been laid, that before the termination of the following week, consols for the account will touch 82. Ar present the funds are nearly 1 per cent, above tbe . price at the commencement of the account. Consols for account, in the course of tbe day, reached 81g, hut tbey closed, ns will be seen hy the following list, a shade lower:— lied. ann. shut; Consols 8O5, 81; ditto for acc. 81J, sellers; 4 per cents, shut; ditto new, 100|.

" POSTSCRIPT. LONDOJV, Monday Night, Sept. 9. The Paris Papers of Thursday and Friday have arrived; they announce the conclusion of the trial of the Rochelle conspirators. Four of the prisoners, viz. Bories, Goubin, Pomier, and Kaonlx, are condemned to death ; three to two years' imprisonment*, one to three years; and three to five years; and one is to he placed under the superintendance of the Police for fifteen years. Thirteen were acq. uitted. Accounts from Madrid to the 27th ult. inform us, that the Duke Dei infantado, the Marquis of Las Amanitas, the Archbishop of Saragosa, and the Bishops of Malaga aud Ceuta have heen banished. The garrison of Madrid ia said to have been reduced to 800 men, so that the military duty was done almost entirely hy the National Guards, The report of the defeat of the Trap- piste ( an Insurgent Chief so called) is confirmed, and he is said to have joined Quesada with his remaining followers. The intelligence with re- spect to the state of the contest in the north of Spain is contradictory and uncertain. On the one hand, the advices from Bayonne claim numerous successes for the Constitutionalists; while, on the other, those in some of the French Papers assert that victory has almost invariably attended the efforts of the armies of the Faith. There is doubt- less a mixture of truth and falsehood in the state- ments on both sides. ARRESTS FOR HIGH TREASON in IRELAND. — The twenty prisoners confined for some time past in Kilmainham Gaol, aud who obtained an order for their discharge on the last day of the Commission, were brought up yesterday ( 6th inst.) to the Head Police Office, and mi giving bail before the Magistrate, were discharged.— Dublin Freeman* a Journal. We arc concerned to observe, by the Irish Papers received this morning, that the spirit of lawless depredation still exists in some Baronies of the lately proclaimed districts. On the night, of the 2d instant, the harvest stock of the Rev. Mr. Creagb, of Doneraile, County of Cork, was set on fire and totally consumed, as a punishment for having collected the tithes. The residence of James Norcott, Esq. Springfield, in the same County, was forcibly entered on the same evening, jjud searched for arms. In the Barony of Gowran, County of Kilkenny, the thatch of a farmer's dwelling was set on tire during the nighl of Tues- day last, but the family fortunately escaped the horrid fate which had been prepared for them. The practice of sending threatening notices, appears to he reviving. About one o'clock on Friday morning se'nnight, the coach- house belonging to General Sanders, of Goldenfort, near Baltinglass, was maliciously set fire to, and totally consumed, together with some adjoining out- offices, and all therein. The loss on this occasion is estimated at several hundred pounds. The following is a deplorable instance of the shocking consequences attending the use of spring fjfu- ns. It took place a few days ago. The simple recital of the event must operate more powerfully as a warning against the employment of those dreadful engines than any thing we could say: As Mrs. Whitby, of the King's County, was walk- ing her garden, she stood on a spring gun, by which both her legs were shot off. It was half an hour afterwards she was found dead hy the serv- ants, who were alarmed at her long absence. The above lady was mother to Mrs. Desmond, of the Bachelor's walk, Dublin. Dublin Freeman's Journal. THE FUNDS.— City, Two crCloc'h.— The mar- ket opened this morning looking very \ yell; Consols were done at 81- for Money, and 8If for the Account, but some large sales being effected they suddenly fell to 8l£ for the Account, and 80| for Money, accompanied by a variety of unauthen ticated reports calculated to produce a further de- pression, such as a resignation of the present Ministers, ike. & c. and of the King's sudden indisposition, each report differing in the precise nature of his malady; the market, however, remains steady, and is, again rather better. Con- sols are 81 for Money, aud 81J Buyers for the Account ; New 4 per Cents. 100| ; per Cent, 93|-. Foreign Securities are all improving. SHREWSBURY. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1822. We bave received a letter, headed " CRUEL SPORTS," and signed < c J. I). P." complaining, in very strong* terms, of tbe illegal practice of badger- baiting, duck- hunting, & c. in this town and vicinity ; but as there are, in reference to one point of his complaint, allusions made which must necessarily involve inquiry, and may possibly produce serious personal consequences, the letter of our Corres- pondent cannot be inserted without being authen- ticated by his REAL signature. BIRTHS. O11 Tuesday, the 3d inst. at Linslade, Bucks, the Lady of Andrew Vincent Corbet, Esq. ofa daughter.

The University of Halle, in Saxony, have lately presented Professor Lee, with the Diploma of Doctor in Divinity ; and the Asiatic Society of Paris have elected him an honorary Member of that celebrated institution. These marks of re- spect for his eminent acquirements, shewn to the Professor 011 the Continent of Europe, will no doubt be highly gratifying to his numerous friends.

On Thursday, upwards of 100 of the tenantry and friends of the Hon. R. II. Clive sat down to a sumptuous dinner at the Clive Arms, where the day was spent in every demonstration of enthusiastic joy. At a long table in front of the Clive Arms dined an immense number of poor people, the board groaning under roasted sheep and a mountain of plum pudding, upon the top of which was planted a large blue flag bearing- an appropriate inscription ; an the ancient provincial toastj " Old Cyder as plenty as Water," was real- ized in a very striking manner, so that the frequent ibations to the Jolly God out or doors soon produced the various consequences of John Bull in high cou- rage. Tbe gentlemen assembled within the house did not separate until a very late hour, and every thing went off in tbe most happy manner possible. The toasts were numerous, and, amongst many others, the following were drank with 3 times 3 : ~ The King— The Infant whose Birth we are met to celebrate— The Hon. R.

HUNT," respecting- the warranty ofa horse as a stout drawer.— The trial lasted from a little after ten o'clock in the moruing, till nearly eight at night, when the Jury, after a short consultation, gave a verdict for the plaintiff; the defendant was, in consequence, obliged to take back the horse, and pay all expenses. At Brecon Great Sessions, William IVforris ( the only prisoner for trial) was found guilty of stealing horse hair, and sentenced to six months' imprison- ment.— At these Sessions there were two causes en- tered for trial :- The first ( Rogers, widow, and another, v. Rees) was respecting the right of water to a farm in the parish of Devynnoek. Afler the Jury ( spe- cial) had been sworn, and three or four witnesses examined on the part of the plaintiffs, it was ar- ranged between the parties that the business should be referred to the arbitration of G. R, Cross, Esq. and a Juror was accordingly withdrawn. In the other cause ( Elizabeth Powell, spinster, v Lle- wellin Jones) for breach of promise of marriage, and for money lent and advanced by the plaintiff to tbe defendant, after powerful addresses had been delivered bv the Counsel 011 both sides, and a great number of witnesses examined, the Learned Judge ( Wingfield) summed up the whole in th& most able manner, commenting on tbe evidence adduced ; anil tbe Jury, without retiring from ihe box, gave a general verdict for the plaintiff— Da- mages £ 30.

Other sorts are very numerous, but scarcely any thing makes more than 3s. Mutton may be quoted as high as 3s. for the choice pens, but tbe greater part ofthe trade in very good Muttou, is from 2s. 6d. to 2s. 8d. per stone. In Lamb the trade is almost at on end, and Pork is so cheap, that the price is consi- derably lower.

Liverpool, 9th Sept. 1822. 4d A dreadful riot took place at an early hour this morning, between two mobs of the low Irish in the vicinity of Oxford- street, in which one man nearly lost his life, and several others were severely in- jured.— Thirteen of the rioters were apprehended CAUTION.— On Saturday last, a large quantity of Butcher's Meat, unfit for human food, but which was exhibited for sale at the standings of two Butchers ( one belonging to the town aud the other to the country), was seized by the Poliee Officers and burnt in the Market Square ; an 1 we are offici- ally informed, that it is the determination of the Right Worshipful the Mayor and tbe Magistrates to notice all meat exposed for sale, and put tbe law in force against all who violate its salutary enact- ments. IMPORTANT TO DISSENTERS.— The General Turnpike Act, passed during the last Session, completely sets at rest the question of Dissenters being exempt from paying toll on Sundays, when proceeding to their usual places of worship. The Act states, that tolls shall not be demanded or taken 44 of or from any person or persons going to or returning from his, her, or their usual place of religions worship, tolerated by law, on Sundays, or on any day on which divine service is by authority ordered to be celebrated." HIGHWAY ROBBERY.— On Wednesday even ing, Mr. Allen, of Booden, near Stafford, on his way towards Stone, was stopped by three men, about half past seven o'clock, one of whom fired a pistol at him, which happily did no mischief, but they succeeded in robbing him of his watch and other articles. On Mr Allen's arrival at Stone, a constable and an assistant were dispatched on horseback, in pursuit of the highwaymen, joined by another person whom they overtook on the road, they soon afterwards came up with the three men who had committed the robbery. We regret that only one of the highwaymen was finally secured. Execution of Lewis Owen, at Carnarvon, for the Robbery and Attempt to Murder Mr, Sturdy, Supervisor qf Excise.—- Our readers are. acquainted witb the trial and conviction of tbe above unhappy culprit, at the last Carnarvonshire Assizes; On Wednesday last he paid tbe forfeit of his- life to the outraged laws of his country. His demeanor, from tl » e moment of bis conviction, appeared truly contrite. The Chaplain preached the condemned sermon on Tuesday, lo as crowded a congregation as the chapel iu the gaol would admit; on the following morning, tbe High Sheriff, W. L. Caldecott, Esq. and Deputy Sheriff, John Ellis, Esq. attended by the javelinmen, twenty- eight special constables, the staff of the county militia, with several of the County Magis- trates on horseback, appeared at the gaol, and the unhappy man was placed in a cart, accompanied by tbe executioner— bis coffin was also placed in the cart, on which he sat to the place of execution, at Morfa Sciont, about a mile from the prison — Tbe number of spectators could not be less than 12,000; their conduct during the awful ceremony, bore a pleasing contrast to ibe riotousand tumultuous uproar exhibited on these occasions in more populous dis- tricts! The unhappy man addressed the multitude in the Welsh language chiefly, in the most feeling and pathetic manner, during which tbe sobbings of the assembled multitude, were loud andjuoiversal.— He ascribed his melancholy end to habitsof drunken- ness, tbe profanation of the Lord^ s Day, and tbe company of abandoned prostitutes.— He prayed fer- vently for a considerable time after the Chaplain bad prayed witb and parted from him, concluding with the Lord's Prayer ; in short, his conduct throughout evinced tbe greatest fortitude; be was launched into eternity about 12 o'clock, without an apparent strug- gle. His unhappy mother visited and took leave of him iu the prison, previous to his receiving- the sacrament, LANCASTER ASSIZES.— Tipping v. Brooks.— This was an action to recover the value of a bill of exchange for £ 27. 13s. and the expenses. The par- ses are corn- dealers ; tbe plaintiff' in Liverpool, the defendant in Manchester. It appeared that on Satur- day, tbe 15th of June, the plaintiff's clerk called on the defendant, who tendered him on account a bill for £ 27, 13s. accepted by Tomlinson and Co. of Man- chester, payable at R. Cunliffe, jun. and Co's London This was after banking- hours. The clerk declined it, as bfs employer had no means of having the bill presented'in time: it was due on ibe next Tuesday. But lie would take the bill, if the de- fendant would be answerable for any risk. This the defendant agreed to, and he dated his endorsement. The bill was not presented till Thursday^ when pay- ment was refused. There were no effects ; the ac- ceptors bad failed ; but if it had been presented iu due time, it would have been- honoured, on account of tbe endorsement of Cunliffe, Brooks and Co, of Manchester.— The defendant refused to take up the bll according to promise.— The Jury at once found a verdict for the plaintiff'— damages £ 28. Barratt and another v. Buxton.— This action was brought to recover £ 1514. 6s. the amount of bills of exchange accepted by the plaintiffs on account of Buxton and Skelly, corn- dealers, Drogbeda; and the object of the action was to fix Buxton, who is an opulent man, as a partner. It came out. in evi- dence, that, prior to 1817, Richard Skelly carried on business alone, as a corn- dealer at Drogbeda ; and in that year made a composition with bis creditors. The defendant was then, and is now a miller and corn merchant at Preston, with his son: the firm, Buxton and Son. In 1817, a concern was carried on at Drogheda by Richard Skelly and Co. The defendant went to Drogbeda, and the firm became Buxton and Skelly In 1821, tbe plaintiffs purchased grain from Buxton and Skelly, and accepted their bills to the amount of £ 2080, expecting grain to tbat amount. But the value of grain sent was only £ 535. 14s. Buxton and Skelly stopped payment, and the plaintiffs had to pay up their acceptances, amounting to £ 1,544 6s. without having value. On the part of tbe plaintiff', several witnesses proved tbat the defendant had in many respects acted as a partner, and permitted Skelly to represent him to a banker in Dublin as a partner. Tbe defendant endeavouied to rebut this by an attempt t « prove that bis yrandson, a boy only thirteen years pf age when the deed produced in court was executed, was Skelly's partner—- The trial occupied tbe greater part of the day, but the Jury returued a verdict for tbe plaintiffs; damages £ 1544* 6s.— Mr. Scarlett afterwards made a motion fo respite judgment in this cause, on tbe ground tbat the action was com me need so short a time before the assizes, tbat the defendant bad not time to prepare, most of his witnesses being in Ireland. He moved that judg- ment be respited till the fourth day of next term, to give time to prepare affidavits whereon to ground a motion for a new trial, the defendant undertaking to pay the damages into Court within a fortnight, in order to shew that his object was not to delay the payment of the money.— The Court assented to this. LJBF. L UPON THE CHURCH.— We lately men- tioned the conviction of the Editor of the Durham Chronicle, for a gross libel upon the Clergy of Durham.— It is now mentioned that the Editor has made application to " a Noble Earl" in that neigh- bourhood for pecuniary assistance, in consequence of the expense he has been put to in defending liim self at the late Assizes against the prosecution insti tuted by the Clergy: the Noble Earl ( Darlington) replied to the application in a way which does him honour :— He reminded the ill- fated Editor, that he had been convicted of a libel by a Jury of bis country; aud, under such circumstances, the Noble Lord added, he could render bim no assistance.

DOGS.— We have pleasure ill noticing Ihe ex- ertions now making, to do away with the nuisance with which this town has so long been afflicted, from the great number of dogs kept by the lower classes, for the most brutal purposes. Tbe As- sessors of Taxes having been required under a severe penalty to charge all persons keeping dogs with the Window Duty and Dog Tax, a great sensation has been produced ; but as some persons, who do not keep a dog, and whose poverty entitles them to relief, may have been erroneously charged ; and as certificates will be required from respectable householders, where exemption is thus claimed, we earnestly entreat those who are applied to, on no account * to sign such certificate, unless the party applying is well known, as exactness in this re- spect is the only means of putting a stop to a crying evil.— Itmninitham Gazette.

II AVING stated the Scheme of the New State Lottery at Length, I now beg Leave to say it meets with most unqualified Appro- bation, as it is on the good old Principle of the old- fashioned English Lotteries. Of late Years, Lotte- ries having become more frequent than in former Times, various Contractors introduced various No- velties into the Schemes, which Novelties, however popular at the Time, have, from their Frequency, become now no longer attractive; therefore the - Office- keepers concerned with myself in the present • Contract with Government, have determined to try how far the old- fashioned old- English Scheme of all Money, without any Prize of any Denomination being fixed, meets your Approbation ; thinking it likely that no Novelty may be the greatest Novelty ; consequently we have made a Scheme on that Basis, and look forward with the greatest Confidence to your Approval. It will be found to consist of 20,000 Tickets, to be drawn in Six Days, commencing 30th of Next Month ( October f— All the Tickets will l* c put into, the Wheel at once ( before the First Day).— There are Three Monev Prizes of £ 20,000, Two of £ 10,000, Two of £ 5,000, and 113 other Capitals, all Money I and 5,600 minor Prizes, all Money /— There, are not any Classes.— No Reserve, nor any Stock Prizes.— Every Ticket decides its own Fate, and no other, and as there is not even a small Prize fixed, the Whole being afloat, it is possible every Capital may be drawn the First Day ( nay, they might even be all drawn in the first Hour).— Tickets and Shares are now selling at my Offices, 4, Cornhiil, and 9, Cbaring- Cross, London, and by my Agents in this County" of whom Schemes, with every Particular, may be had gratis.

Until lately nothing under 10 hands was thought of for tbe chass ; but the buyers nt the The Report of the Select Committee appointed to consider the several Returns made lo the House of Commons, relative to the Sums levied ou ac. count of the Poor in England and Wales, bas been published. It states that— In conformity with the plan pursued by the Com- mittee of Inst year, your Committee firs I present to the House an Abstract of the whole sum assessed and levied, or in the last year ( for the reason assigned in the Report) levied only, in England and Wales, in every year for which Returns exist, with an account of the payments made thereout for other purposes' than the relief of the Poor, and of the sums actually expended upon the poor. This statement exhibits a continued reduction in the levies, from the year 1817- 18, so that in the last year the amount was less by about £ 31111,000 than the year 1819- 20; and less hy £ 9ti0,000 than in 1,817- 18. Bul il would appear from the Returns, that the amount of the expenditure for other pur- poses than the relief of the poor, has been increasing in ibe last three years, w hile the sums actually ex ™ pended on the poor have diminished. Whether this circumstance is ih any degree to fie accounted for by a different and probably more correct mode adopted by parish officers, of separating ihe two statements, your Commitlee cannot decide. Nor is the increase of the one bead of charge concomitant with a deJ crease of the other; a circumstance necessarily in- volving a suspicion of inaccuracy in Ihe Returns, because it is well known that in the period antece- dent to 1812, Ihe expenditure for other purposes in- creased more rapidly than the expenditure on ao- coilnt of liie poor. Il is Still true, as stated in the Report of last year, that the expenditure has increased from 1812 to the present lime; since The first period to March, 1815, a verages £ 6,123,178; The second, to March, 1818, averages 6,844,290; And the ihird, to March, 1821, averages 7,273,^ 229; But it is also still true, that the increase has not been progressive year by year, since 1817- 18 ; and flint it is not now progressive. On the contrary, each of the three years of ihe third period lias exhibited a diminution as compared with the year preceding. In 1817- 18, the amount was ....£ 7,890,148 ; In 1818- 19 ditlo 7,531,650; In 1819- 20 ..... ditlo 7,329,594; In 1820- 21 dilto 6,958,445. In nine counties and ridings, the expenditure of 1819- 20 was greater than ill 1818- 19. lu every one of these, there has heen a reduction in 1820- 21 • mid in every ooe, except the West Riding of Yorkshire, that reduction has brought the expenditure nol only below the preceding year, but beluw the average of the two preceding years. Berkshire, Norfolk, and Salop, are sfill distin- guished, by the exhibition of a diminution in the third period of average, as compared with the second. To these are now lu be luhledl- aiicashire, Nottinghamshire, Wiltshire, and Worcestershire. On the other hand, in ttvo counties onlv, Hunting, don and Northumberland, does the year 1820- 21 show an excess above 1819- 20. The increase has been hy no means considerable; and in neither county has the expenditure of the year 1820- 21 equalled the average of Ihe two preceding years. The jreneral rate of diminution between 1819 20 and 1820- 21, is live per cent. Nottinghamshire ex- hibits the highest rate of 17 per cent, and Cam- bridgeshire Ihe lowest, or one percent.: compared with 1817- 18, Ihe decrease has been at the rate of 12 per cent. The Committee of last year appended lo tlieir Re- port, an account of the average price of wheat, in periods corresponding with those of the Returns. Your Committee cannot avoid noting, without com- ment— a remarkable coincidence between the fluctu- ations iu Ihe Price of Wheat and in Ibe Poor Rates, lu the first period, both declined annually; both rose in the second ; both fell in the third. But though it appears that a rise in the price of Wheat is accompanied by a rise or fall in the amount of the Poor Rates, il is not to he understood lhat the variations have occurred at a corresponding rate. The protection of the interests of tbe payers nf rates, by preventing or detecting embezzlement by Ibe overseer, or the unauthorized expenditure of ilie money ofthe parish, is unquestionably an important object. Your Committee are not satisfied that Ihe existing law has sufficiently provided even for the local interests of the parish in this respect ; but they npprrlirml jhnt the Slate boa alais an iotef.' sr in the repression of wasteful expenditure, which inter- est has never, until within a few years, been in Ihe contemplation of those who have legislated upon the Poor Rales. This interest of the State consists in tlle importance of counteracting to Ihe utmost, the evil tendencies nf llie Poor Laws in relation to society; their effect in discouraging industry and frugality, and introducing hail feelings aud ' habit* among the people. With this view it may sometimes be necessary to repress even the benevolent intentions of those by whom the rates are paid; and still more Ihe incautious beneficence of those who have llie power of disposing of the money of others. Thus, even if it could be supposed lhat those upon whom the money is levied would not unnecessarily expend it, and that, therefore, an effectual audit of'accounts would be sufficient lo prevent improvident expend- iture by vestries or overseers, that check would he quite inoperative upon Justices of the Peace. Expenditure, whether extravagant in amount or misdirected in its objects, cannot lie effectually checked, unless it he subjected, not only to a correct audit, bul to a vigilant superintendence. It is neither w ithin Ihe province, nor consistent with the opinions of your Committee, to suggest the estab- lishment of any such superintendence while ihe ex- penditure is ill progress ; but they nre strongly im- pressed with the belief, that whatever may make* not only the higher local Authorities, but the King, Government, Parliament^ and the public, acquainted with the system and amount of the expeuditu^ e + rr everv district and parish, will operate as one of the most effectual checks which can be adopted for con- trolling the expenditure. It is obviously impossible that even the resident Justices of a division, or any tribunal Higher that! the vestry of a parish, can take cognizance of the case of every person relieved; but there is a lon- r interval between an examination so minute as to con" sider the case of each pauper, aud one s<> general as to contemplate only the gross sum expeuded upon all the paupers in a parish. Your Committee conceive, that if the persons re- lieved, and the causes of relief, were distinguished in classes, information of the greatest utility mrnld be obtained, not only for checking the expenditure of particular parishes, but for communicating to Parlia- ment a much more accurate know ledge-' than they now possess, of the nature and causes oi the variation in the amount of the Poor Rates, This is the only Lottery for more than Thirty Years past in which the IVhole of the Prizes hdve been left floating, and none fixed for particular Dujjs. attended principally owing to the doubtful state of bte fair3 in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire would not the weather, and to many ot the visitors having been completely drenched with rain the former day. Con- trary to expectation it continued fair.— At night, the Fancy Ball took place at the New Exchange Rooms. | About nine o'clock the company began to arrive ; a more elegant company was never witnessed ; but to attempt any general description of the dresses or characters would exceed our limits; every person present seemed, by their costume, to enter" into the spirit of the scene; the taste and splendour of the dresses exceeded every thing which bad been an- ticipated, and almost realized the poet's fancied pic- ture of fairv land. The company did not disperse till after the light of morning had beamed iu full radiance. look at any thing above 15 hands and one inch, or thereabouts. Black horses have also fallen into discredit. Greys and browu bays are the favourite colours. Of the former, an iron grey has the decided preference. It rates 10 per cent, above any other colour. Several of the opulent Gentlemen Farmers in the Counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, much to their credit, have resolved that during the ensuing winter they will not use their threshing machines, by which a great number of the labouring; class of society will be employed, Such information would be particularly useful, if the Ilouse entertain any measure for amending the Poor Laws, since they would thereby be enabled to form some estimate of the effect of any partial regu- lation. For instance, it has been proposed, at different times, to confine relief to the sick and impotent ; to prohibit the administration of relief, iu moilev, to able- bodied persons ; to forbid a consideration ofthe nnmberof children in giving relief to a parent; the operation of each of these, and of various other measures which have been or may be recommended, would be at least approximately ascertained by the classification suggested, " And if any of the grounds upon which relief is now administered, are to be deemed illegal, or made so by a new law, a provision which should require from parishes a statement of the grounds upon which the several portions of their expenditure have been conducted, will enable those hy whom the accounts are passed, if not to disallow the irregular charges, which ( except where they are manifestly illegal, such as charges for dinners, and others for the benefit of the officers) might he a proceeding in the first instance too severe^ at least to take care that the irregularity be not repeated." A VAGRANT MONKEY.— Marmaduke Lawson, Esquire, an acting Magistrate for the County of York, being examined before a Committee of the House of Commons on the vagrant laws, was asked if he had ever known an instance of any thing except a vagrant having heen included in a pass ? He replied in the affirmative, and related the following circumstance : A man who bad a monkey, which was the means of his subsistence, in going up and down the country, was taken up for begging: he had a regular pass, made out for Scotland, with the usual allowance of 8d. per day. The man said that he could not main- tain himself aud his monkey on that sum, and the consequence must be that he must dispose of him. The Clerk having been much amused and pleased with the tricks and grimace* of the monkey, said, 1 vve will pass him too.' Accordingly a blank pass was filled up for the monkey under tbe name of k John Strange,' also wilh the allowance of 8d. a day, and by w hich he was passed out uf the North Riding inl Scotland."

Dickinson, Esq. M. P. nnd several of the distinguished Members of that loyal and patriotic Club. The chair was most ably tilled by Lord Edward Somerset, who prefaced the various constitutional toasts usually drank on this occasion with several most appropriate and ener- getic speeches ; which drew down thunders of applause from the company assembled. On the health of the Duke of Wellington being drank, Lord Apsley said, that he had frequently heard his Grace assert that the reception he met with from the Citizens of Bristol, when he made his triumphal entry there on his return at the Peace, vvas one of ihe most gratifying events of his life. Upon the health of the Honourable Chairman being drank, coupled vvitb the other Heroes who fought at Waterloo, it Was intimated . that another noble person in the room, beside Lord Edward Somerset, who it will be remembered commanded the House- hold troops on the ever- memorable occasion, was present as a volunteer on the field of battle. The mention of this circumstance led to the relation of the following anecdote, which, in justice to the party concerned, we cannot withhold from the public, as it discloses one instance more, to several • which have lately occurred, of the magnanimity of inihd, with which the British Heroes and British Statesmen of the present day can silently hear some of their noblest actions traduced by the tongue of slander, or misrepreseute and perverted by the factious and licentious press, without giving them- selves the trouble to refute the falsehoods trusting to the slow but certain effects of time and history for their defence aud justification. It lias frequently been asserted in the Radical prints, and many have given credence to the story, that our great Hero and his Staff were at an Assembly at Brussels on the evening preceding the Battle of Waterloo ; and that he was wholly unprepared, and ignorant of the intentions and near approach of Bonaparte and his army. The following* simple narrative, which has not hitherto, we believe, received such authentic verification, falsifies at once the assertion that the Duke was unprepared for the attack, and proves lhat there can be no reason why the plans and intentions of a great military commander should ever extend far beyond his own breast. The honourable volunteer alluded to was by chance at Brussels at this very period j and at his Grace's particular request rode vvith him the day preceding the. battle, through the British lines, and over the far- famed Plains of Waterloo; the Duke informed him that he expected the engagement to take place en the following day ; and that lie vvas much pleased • with the position which he had taken. Lord Hill also was apprised of his Noble Commander's wishes and expectations ; but not so, perhaps, were many others of his officers ; and it was the Duke's parti- cular wish, expressed to his noble friend, that his brother, an officer also in the army, should with all his other comrades by 110 means absent themselves from the ball at Brussels, to which they had been invited. They did attend the ball ; but were all nnder orders to be at head- quarters by five o'clock the next morning ; and their attending the ball as was expected, it is an ascertained fact, led Bona- parte to believe, that the Duke was unprepared for The result is LIBEL.— In the golden days of good Queen Bess, those Halcyon days, to which every English- man affects to look up with rapture, the punish- ment for libel was loss of the right hand to the libeller. A Mr. Page, who had presumed to write a pamphlet on the subject of the Queen's marriage with the Duke of Anjoir, was prosecuted for, and convicted of, libelling her Majesty,* and suffered the punishment. When on the scaffold, he made the following manly and spirited speech : 44 Fellow Countrymen, I am conic here to receive the law according to my judgment, and thank the God of all, and of this 1 take God to witness ( who knoweth fhe hearts of all men), that as I am sorry I have offended her Majesty, so did I never mean harm to her Majesty's person, crown, or dignity; but have been as true a subject ( as any was in England) to the best of my ability, excepting none."— Then holding up his right hand, he said, 44 This hand did I put to the plough, and got my living by it many years. If it would have pleased her High- ness to take my left hand, or my life, she had dealt more favourably with me, for now I have 110 means to live ; but God, who is the father of us all, will provide for me. I beseech you,- good people, to pvay for me, that I may take my pun- ishment patiently."— He then laid his hand'upon the block, and prayed the lixecutioner to dispatch quickly. At two blows his hand vvas taken off: when, lifting up his bleeding arm, and pointing to tlie block, he said to the bye- standers, 44 See, I have left there a true Englishman's hand ;" and then went from the scaffold stoutly, and with great courage. What would be said of such a punish- ment in the present day ? CHANGE OF CIRCUMSTANCE.— Would an individual now, progressing from London- Bridge through the Pool to Greenwich, observing tbe forest of masts exhibited on each shore of the majestic River Thames, and the Dock- yards con- tiguous thereto crowded with shipping, credit that little more than two centuries and a half had rolled over since the now great and opulent Port of London could not have mustered half a dozen trading vessels belonging to her of the burthen of 120 tons. It is a well- authenticated fact, however, that in the early part of Elizabeth's reign, in 1540, the Port of London, exclusive of the Royal Navy, had 110 more than four vessels of 120 tons burthen belonging to it. The merchants of the Hans Towns, resident in London, were privileged above the native merchants; and even up to 1552 those aliens engrossed a great part of the foreign trade of the kingdom; and all their imports and exports were made in foreign bottoms ; and in Sir William Monson's Naval Tracts it is stated, that at a much later period the Venetians sent their argosies Eujvland, ladon Indian merchandize. ill* Turkish, Persian, uutl Society for the Propagation of the Gospel fa Foreign Parts.— u The Society was originally in- corporated in the year 1701, for the Support of an Orthodox Body of Clergy in his Majesty's Colonies, and the general diffusion of Christian Knowledge among* trie recent Settlements of North America, and accordingly, its operations were for many years confined to that quarter of the globe. " The Members of the Corporation, of which the Archbishop of Canterbury was first appointed President, and has since been annually elected to that office, are chosen by ballot, and conduct the business of the Society, in addition to certain of the Chief Prelates and Dignitaries of the Church for the time being*, specially named in the Charter; within the last few years additional Members have been united to the Body in the capacity of Associated and Contributing Members, and these are appointed by nomination. " Previously to the separation of the Thirteen Colonies from the Parent Country, the whole of those extensive provinces participated in the bene- fits derived from the exertions of the Society ; and the very existence ofthe Episcopal Church in those regions at the present moment is justly to be at- tributed to its early and long- continued efforts ; but since the acknowledgment ofthe Independence of the United States, its operations in North America have been necessarily limited to the Provinces of Canada, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and New- foundland. 44 Of late years the Population in those Colouies has increased to such an extent, that the Society has deemed it necessary to enlarge the number of its Missionaries far beyond what was required during the last war ; indeed, as it appears from the Table subjoined to the Society's Reports, the Spi- ritual wants of those countries cannot be adequately supplied without such an addition to the Ministers of Religion as would almost double the number that was considered sufficient even at so late a period as the year 1816. The actual number of Missionaries now in the service of the Society, is Eighty- six, in addition to which a large body of Schoolmasters is partially supported from its Funds. " Another source of expenditure has been opened to the Society in the extended Colonization of the Southern parts of Africa, and in the interior of New Holland, where it will form an object of great and important in te rest to carry forward the same plans of religious instruction and general education which have been found so effectual in the North Americau Colonies. " To meet these great and increasing demands the resources of the Society are found wholly in- adequate, notwithstanding the liberal aid they have obtained- from Parliamentary Grants. " They have already been under the necessity of reducing their capital stock by the sale of £ 10,000 3 per cent. Consolidated Bank Annuities, aud a further sum of considerable magnitude will be re- quired to make good the deficiencies of the present year. 44 The Collections under the authority of the Royal Letter, granted in 1819, are appropriated to the exclusive uses of the Bishop's College, Calcutta, and the Establishments connected with it, and will be found unequal to answer the increasing demands from that quarter. The buildings there are already so far advanced that it is expected the College will be in a state of activity at the very commencement of the ensuing year. " Letters have been received, announcing the arrival of the Principal of the College at Calcutta, in company with one of the Professors, and that they were both diligently engaged in the pursuits of those studies which Avould enable them to carry on with effect the designs of the Society. The foundation ofa College Library had been laid at a considerable expense, which will require many additions to rentier it efficient for the purposes of the Institution. At the Meeting of the Board in March last, it was resolved to endow ten Theological Scholarships, and the same number of Lay Scholar- ships, to form a body of Schoolmasters and Cate- chists, as well as Missionaries, the charge for which cannot be estimated at less than Tweuty Thousand Pounds. " Under these circumstances, the Society intreat their Friends to circulate, with increased activity, authentic details of the nature and extent of their operations, with a conviction that the British Public will not fail to view the Corporation as the safest depository for their Charitable Contributions to- wards the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts." The Pleasures of a Newspaper. MR. EDITOR,— Every man, when he awakes in the morning, finds that the reflections suggested by the preceding day have been, if not wholly obliterated, at least suspended by sleep ; that hew topics of conversation are wanting, aud that surprise is on tiptoe for new calls; he is unwilling to recur to the business of the preceding day, because it has been exhausted ; or ashamed to recollect it because it has disappointed him. A family thus met together would drink the cup of Lethe, and eat the toast of taciturnity, were they not happily relieved from torpor of thought and immobility of tongue, by the entrance of a Newspaper. It is possible, indeed, that the weather might fur- nish a brief subject of debate, but the wind must blow a hurricane, and the rain descend in torrents, to be worth more than a moment's conversation.— When the newspaper appears, however, all Europe is united to refresh the languid memory, to quicken the dull thoughts, and to give expedition to the communicative tongue. No publication surely was ever so fertile in sources of reflection lo those who choose to think, or of conversation to those who prefer the humbler, though more noisy business of talking. First a long list of extensive amusements presents itself, fraught with every tempting induce- ment. Here it is important to observe how a play is casty what great performers are concerned, and what farce or entertainment is to follow ; if a concert or opera, what pieces are to be performed, and whether the Divine Catalani bears a part. From amuse- ments there is a transition to works of charity, to sub- scriptions of names and sums of money for benevolent purposes ;— whether the arrangement here be judici- ous, or whether these ought not to precede amuse- ments, I shall not stop to inquire.— Attentively observed, newspapers will be fouud very correct pic- tures of the times, aud very faithful records of the transfer of property, whether by sale or fraud. I hinted that the arrangement was apparently con- fused. We see books and pills, estates and lap- dogs, perfumery and charity sermons, crowded together by one of those accidents by which we may suppose j Chaos would be produced. Here a disconsolate widow J dvertises that she carries on business as usual, for j e benefit of her orphan family ; aud there a lady of ! uality offers five guineas for the recovery of her p- dog, which answers to the name of Chloe. A persons wants to borrow £ 5000 on undeniable secu- rity ; and a stable keeper offers to sell a horse for one hundred guineas on his own word — Servants ant places, iu which 44 wages are no object;" a riter wants an apprentice, where only 100 guineas • premium is asked, and none given.

IMOND, PERTH.— An Edinburgh Paper says— r44 We understand that the Drummond Highlanders, fifty in number, set off on Saturday for Perthshire, highly delighted vvith the kind patronage and liberality of their chieftain, the Right Hon. Lord Gwydyr. Since the arrival of the clan in Edinburgh, upon the present happy occasion, they have formed a conspicuous part of the different processions: they are a set of fine- looking robust Highlanders, handsomely equipped by their chief in the true Highland garb, and bearing their ancient badge— a bough of holly. On his Majesty's landing al Leith, they were stationed next the Royal carriage, and so soon as his Majesty had taken his seat, the leader of the clan went up lo his Majesty, and, in the name of the Chief, welcomed his Majesty to the Highlands of Scotland, which expression of attachment his Majesty was pleased to acknowledge in the most gracious manner. In the evening the clan depo- I sited Iheir banners at the Chieftain's hotel, after which they, through their leader, received the thanks of the Chieftain for their alacrity in assem- bling to meet him in Edinburgh to welcome his Majesty, having started from Drummond Castle on six hours' notice, and also his entire approba- tion of their conduct while in Edinburgh, accom- panied with a hearty Highland invitation to repair, on their return, to Drumniond Castle, to a dinner end ball, on Tuesday, 27th August, whither his Lordship has gone to receive them." CAPER- CUTTING.— On the Island of Malta the caper- tree grows wild in great plenty, and is particularly abundant 011 the walls of Lavalette, where much ftmit is annually produced, which since the capture of the island has been the undis- puted perquisite of the officer in command of the Engineers. Some time ago the officer commanding that corps complained to the Governor, stating that the trees were cut down and the fruit carried away by the inhabitants, and begging the Governor to issue an order for the protection of what he conceived to be his lawful property; upon which the old facetious gentleman gave out the following ludicrous order :— 46 Whereas it has been reported to me, hy the Officer commanding the Engineers, that the inhabitants of Lavalette have for some time past destroyed the fruit and cut down the caper- trees hanging on the outside of the walls of the garrison :— it is the command of the Governor that no one in future cut capers either 011 the top or sides of the walls, except the Lieut.- Colonel commanding the Engineers. Any one found cut- ting his capers on the walls after this notification will be confined in the black- hole for the first offence, and, for a repetition of so flagitious an act, the next capers they cut will be their own, at the tail of a cala6h, to the tune of a cat- o'- nine. lails." ROAST PIG. \ From the London Magazine."] Of all the delicacies in the whole mundus edibilis, I will maintain it to be the most delicate— princeps obsoniorum, 1 speak not of your grown porkers— things between pig and pork— those hohydehoys— but a young and tender suckling— under a moon old— guiltless as yet of the stye— with no original speck of the amor im- munditice, the hereditary failing* of the first parent, yet manifest— his voice as yet not broken, but some- thing between a childish treble, and a grumble— the mild forerunner, prceludium, of a grunt. He must be roasted. I am not ignorant that our ancestors ate them seethed, or boiled— hut what a sacrifice of the exterior tegument! There is uo flavour comparable, I will contend, to that of the crisp, tawny, well- watched, not over- roasted, crackling, as it is well called,— the very teeth are invited to their share of the pleasure at this banquet in overcoming the coy, brittle resistance— with the adhesive oleaginous— O call it not fat— hut an indefinable sweetness growing up to it— the tender blossoming of fat— fat cropped in the bud- taken in the shoot— iu the first innocence— the crcam and quintessence of the child- pig's yet pure food the lean, 110 lean, but a kind of animal manna— or rather, fat and lean ( if it must be so) so blended and rnuning into each other, that both together make but one ambrosian result, orcommon substance. See him in the dish, his second cradle, how meek he lieth !— wouldst thou have had this innocent grow up to the grossness and indocility which too often accompany maturer swinehood ? Ten to one he would have proved a glutton, a sloven, an obstinate, disagreeable animal— wallowing in all manner of filthy conversation— from these sins he is happily snatched away— Ere sin could blight, or sorrow fade, Death came with timely care- bis memory odoriferous— no clown curseth, while his stomach half rejecteth, the rank bacon— no coal- heaver bolteth him in reeking sausages— he hatha fair sepulchre in the grateful stomach of the judicious epicure— and for such a tomb might be conleut to die. He is the best of sapors— Pine- apple is great. She is indeed almost too transcendent— a delight, if not sinful, yet so like to sinning, that really a tender- conscienced person would do well to pause— too ravishing for mortal taste he woundelh and excoriateth Ihe lips that ap- proach her— like lovers' kisses— bul she stoppeth at the palate— she meddled) not with the appetite, aud the coarsest hunger might barter her consistently for a mutton chop.

I protest I take as great an interest in my friend's pleasures, his relishes, aud proper satis- factions, as in my own, 44 Presents," I often say, 44 endear Absents." Hares, pheasants, partridges, snipes, barn- door chickens ( those 44 tame villatic fowl1'), capons, plovers,, brawn, barrels of oysters, I dispense as freely as I receive them. I love to taste them, as it were, upon the tongae of my friend. But a stop must be put somewhere. One would not, like Lear, 44 give every thing." I make my stand upon pig. Methinks it is ingratitude to send out of the house, slightingly ( under the pretext of friend- ship, or I know not what), a blessing so particularly adapted, predestined, I may say, to my individual palate— it argues an insensibility. Our ancestors were nice in their method of sacri- ficing these tender victims. We read of pigs whipt to death with something of a shock, ns we hear of any other obsolete custom. The age of discipline is gone by, or il would be curious to inquire ( in a phi- losophical light merely) what effect this process might have towards intenerating and dulcifying a substance, naturally so mild and dulcet as the flesh of young pigs. It looks like refining a violet. Yet we should be cautious, while we condemn the in- humanity, how we censure the wisdom of the practice. It might impart a gusto— His sauce should be considered.

AFRICA.— Mr. Jackson, resident upwards of 16 years in South and West Barbary, makes the following observations on the diffusion of the blessings of Christianity in Africa :— 44 That it is a Christian duty to attempt, by lenient measures, to propagate the Christian religion among the idolaters and Mnhnmedans of Africa, cannot be doubted ; but this propagation will not spread to any considerable extent, until ( in that country) the mor- als of Christians in general shall approach nearer than they actually do to the standard of Christian perfection. It is, however, most certain that there never was a more promising or a more favourable opportunity of subverting paganism in Africa, and establishing Christianity on its ruins, than at this present period ; and I think the best method to effect this desirable purpose, is through the medium of commerce, which must, in that continent, neces- sarily precede science and civilization. It is well known, by all men of penetration who have resided in Muhamedan countries, that the principles of the re- ligion of Muhamed are not so repugnant tp Christi- anity as many, nay, most persons have imagined. Vari- ous causes, however, tend to increase the hostility that exists between the two religions. First, it is aug- mented by the Fakeers, and by political men, who are ever active in bringing to their aid superstition and enthusiasm, to increase the hostility. Secondly, it is augmented by the very little intercourse which they have vvith Christians, originating, for the most part, in our ignorance of the Arabic language, nn ignorance which has been lamented by the Emperor Seedy Muhamed Ben Abdallah himself. Thirdly, the hostility of these iwo religions is augmented by a very ancient tradition, that the country will be in. vaded by theChristians, and converted to Christianity &. that this event will happen 011 a Friday ( the Muha. medan sabbath), during the time that they are at the Csilla dohor) prayers at half past one o'clock, P. M., so that throughout the empire they close Ihe gates of all the towns on this day, at this period of time, till two o'clock, P. M.: when the prayers are over, and the people go out of the mosques, the gates are again thrown open. This tradition, which is universally believed, acts on the mind: of the whole community, and fans the embers of hostility already lighted between Christians and Mnhamedaris, bringing to the recollection of the latter the hostile intentions of the former to invade and take their country from them, when an oppor tuuity shall offer. Ou the other hand, what tends to reconcile the two creeds is, the influence tbat Euror pean commerce, and the principles of the Christian doctrine, have had 011 the Musselmen of Africa. This influence extends as far as the commerce with Europeans extends. Wherever the Europeans ne gociate with the Moors, the great principle of the Christian doctrine is known and discussed,— that principle which surpasses every doctrine pro pagated by the Grecian philosophers, or the wise men of the East,— that truly noble, liberal, and charitable principle, 44 Do as you would be done by," influences the conduct of the better educated Musselmen who have bad long intercourse and negociations with Christians ; and they do fail to retort it upou us, whenever our conduct deviates from it. Thus the minds of Musselmen, wherever European commerce flows, are tinctured with this great principle of the Christian doc- trine. And, to an accurate observer of mankind, it will appear that this principle, from its own intrin- sic beauty, has in many cases superseded the Mussel- man retaliative system of morality, originating in the Mosaic law, 44 An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth." For I have heard Musselmen, in their indi- vidual disputes with one another, advance this pre- cept as a rule of conduct. If, therefore, this divine principle be recognised by Mnsselmen, who have had intercourse and commercial negociations with Euro- peans, iu defiance of the obstacles in this country suggested by the fakeers and political men, what might we not expect from the due cultivation of an extensive commerce, upon a grand national scale, with this interesting continent ? Might we not expect a gradual diffusion of the principles of Christianity among- the Musselmen, as well as among the pagans and idolaters of Africa? I would venture to assert, that in the event of the British government engaging, with energy and determination, to cultivate a com- mercial intercourse and extensive connection with Africa, that the negroes, and possibly even the Muhamedans, might gradually be converted tu Chris- tianity. This event would take a long time to ac- complish, but its gradual progress, most probably, would be more rapid than was the progress of Muha- medanism during the life of the Arabian prophet." f » . ..• lost his pocket- book in coming out of the play house; and Mrs. has eloped from her husband, who will ay no debts of her contracting, 44 as witness his ( x) ark." But of all persons 44 that 011 earth do dwell," the sick find the greatest relief in newspapers. Why is it that djsease should prevail, iu spite of the44 infal- lible medicines" that are in a manner down he throats of the sick, is astonishing. Do we not find that in some cases a single box of pills will effect cure— and in others, that the patient will be reliev- l hy the smell only? Will not these medicines keep good in all climates !" Is it not notorious that they perform tlieir cures 44 without loss of time r hindrance of business?" Why then do we hear of the sick and the dying ? Why are not our hospitals turned into alms- houses, for decayed Physicians, and Apothecaries who have no business? Nor is the information respecting the preservation of the health less important than the cure of disease. If we turn our eyes to the sales of houses and estates, e shall find that they are situated in counties re- markable for the salubrity of air, the fertility of the soil, and the purity of the wafer, charmingly shelter- ed, richly wooded, hill and dale, meadow and grove, where the east wind is not perm. itted to chill, nor the thunder to roll. These, if true, are chieflv calculated for persons who can afford to pay rather extrava- gantly for the preservation of health— but this can be 110 object with those who know that health is the greatest of all blessings; and that in this way it may be handed down to the latest posterity. Now when all these subjects are introduced to the breakfast table, what a copious source of conversation for the rest of the day, especially if any of these should create a desire to be a bidder or a purchaser. What hopes,? what fears, what consultations ! But this is not necessary to the pleasure a Newspaper affords. A man may give a very able account of an estate, without the least desire of purchasing it; and the whole family may dispute ou the merit of an en- tertainment, which not one of the party means to partake of. It is possible to compassionate the dis- tress of an orphan family, without contributing six- pence to their relief; and even to read the cures performed by a 44 famous syrup," without desiring to taste a drop of it. Conversation and actions are different things, and if a Newspaper furnishes the former, it is doing much. Posterity can only know, tliat all the letters of the alphabet from A. B. to X. Y. Z. have been eminet for their benevolence in accommodating distressed persons wilh sums of money44 lying at their bankers, from five hundred to twenty thousand pounds;" and thus I close my meditations on the advertisements. I might mention more indeed ; but, as the poet says, 44 Here oft appears a wilderness of strange But gay confusion— roses for the cheeks, And lilies for the brows of faded age : Teeth for the toothless, ringlets for the bald, Heaven, earth, & ocean, p. underedof their sweets, Nectareous essences, olympic dews, Sermons and city feasts, and favourite airs, - Etherealjournies, submarine exploits: And Katterfelto, with his hair ou end, At his own wonders— wondering for his bread!" But yet, all these would probably fail of their effect, were they the only contents of a Newspaper. There are thousands who are indifferent to a change of situ- ation— who are confined to business, and cannot leave it— who are gormandizing a breakfast, and loathe medicine— who are blooming, and want 110 washes- - who are cheerful, and want no amusement— who are charitable, and want 110 puffs, or quackery, to prompt their benevolence; yet with all that, the rest ofa Newspaper supplies that dear and exquisite food— NEWS. This part of a Paper, although I have con sidered it last, is generally consulted first; and what can equal the gladsome inquisitiveness that appears in the eye, w hen it gently rolls over the columns of i fresh Newspaper ? Such is the variety of this de- partment, and such the attachment of every man to his favourite pursuit, that a tolerable guess may be formed of what a man is, by attending to what he first reads in a paper. The sturdy politician, indeed, is a general reader— be can find out a political allusion in every paragraph ; bur others confine themselves to their favourite articles, for, asShenstone says— 44The ill- natured man looks to tbe bankrupts— the trades- man to the price of bread— the stock- jobber to the lie of the day— the old maid to the marriages— the prodigal son to deaths— the monopolist to the hopes of a wet harvest— and the hoarding- school misses to every thing relating to Grelna- green ;" and there is a pretty numerous class to whom bonfires, murders, and picking of pockets, afford a considerable grati- fication in the detail. A newspaper being thus perused by every man according to his taste, the wheels of conversation tire again set a- going, and the dullest has something to say, or some remark to make, on what he has read. To appreciate their value, therefore, we have only to suppose that they were totally to be discontinued for a month. I turn with horror from the frightful idea ! I deprecate such a shock to the circulation of table- talk. It would operate more unfavourably than the glooin of November is said, by foreigners, to operate on the nerves of Englishmen; and after such a suspension of news, I am afraid the papers would contain nothing but accounts of sudden deaths which had happened in the interval, with the de- liberate opinion of the coroner's jury.— Died for want of intelligence. Forgery on the Blackburn Bank.— On Friday, Thomas Burke, aged 25, was charged with forging certain promissory notes for 30s. each, purporting to he of the Blackburn Bank of Messrs. Cunlifle, Brooks, and Co. There were several other counts in the indictment, charging the prisoner with uttering and disposing of the said promissory notes, with intent to defraud Messrs. Cunlifle and Co. and also with in- tent to defraud Joseph Hadfield.— Mr. Starkie stated the case to the jury, and observed, that the offence charged in the indictment was only a misdemeanour owing to the peculiar form in which the notes were worded, which rendered it impossible to indict the prisoner for a capital offence. Instead of being a promissory note for the payment of money, the instru- ment merely contained an engagement, 011 the part of the drawers, to receive it as 30s. in part payment for a £ 2 note.— Mr. BaronWood professed himself wholly at a loss to comprehend what sort of a promissory note that could be ; and one was handed to his Lordship for his inspection. After looking at it for a short time, he said this was a new device on the part of the bankers, and asked Mr. Starkie what they could mean by issuing such notes as these, and how a per- son could recover upon them ?— Mr. Starkie said, he believed they had been issued during a scarcity of change. He did not know how the holders could re- cover upon them : he was inclined to think that no person could recover upon them, except the party who originally received them from the bankers. In his hands they might he evidence of money had and received.— Mr. Starkie then called Joseph" Hadfield, who proved that the prisoner sold him, at his ( wit- ness's) house, fifteen forged Blackburn notes for thirty shillings each, for which he paid £ 6. 14s. 6d. in money, which bad been previously furnished him for that purpose by Mr. Lavender, and part of which was marked. One of the beadles, named Kilbie, was witness to the transaction, having been concealed iu an adjoining room. Mr Lavender look the prisoner intocustody immediately after he left Hadfield's house, and found upon hiiu the marked money and ten forg- ed thirty shilling notes. A clerk from the Blackburn hank proved that the notes were forgeries.— Mr. Williams, for the prisoner, then contended that the prosecutors had not made out their case on any one count of the indictment. In each count the forged instrument was called a promissory note ; whereas it vvas quite obvious that it was not a note for the payment of money, the only sort of promissory note recognized by the law, or known iu com- mercial transactions. The note did not promise to pay any thing: it promised that the bankers would receive it and ten shillings, after which they, in their great goodness, would give the holder a £ 2 note. It was an instrument on which no action could ever be maintained, and it had been decided over and over again that no indictment could be sus- tained for the forgery of an instrument which was in I itself illegal and invalid The Learned Gentleman cited several cases and Acts of Parliament in support of his argument.— Mr. Brown, in reply, contended that all Mr. Williams's cases applied merely to prose- cutions for forgery under a special Act of Parliament. This was an indictment at common law for a misde- meanour, in fraudulently forgingand uttering promis- sory notes, with intent to defraud certain parlies.— Mr. Baron Wood 441 have very great doubts on the subject : however, I will let the case go to ihe jury, and reserve the point for the opinion of the Judges!" — Mr. Williams said, that, under the circumstances, he should not address the jury for the defendant, but would content himself with observing that there was 110 evidence as to the forgery ; onlj as to the uttering. — Mr. Baron Wood briefly summed up the evidence, and commented 011 bankers issuing such notes It appeared from ihe number of one which he held in his hand, that there vvas a very considerable sum in those notes now in circulation • font one farlhin( r of wfoicIi, lie believed, could not fop recovered by law from thp bankers.— The jury found the defendant " guilty uf uttering."— The verdict was taken 011 the com! count, which charged him wilh uttering, vvith intent to defraud Messrs. Cunlift'e and Co.; hut the case is reserved for the opinion of the twelve Judges. — John Stevens, 24, Sarah Hughes, 30, Catherine Stevens, 50, Nathaniel Sutclifl'e, .32, charged with the same offence, were discharged on entering into recognizances iu £ 40 each to appear at the nexl Assizes. [ Thomas Burke was afterwards brought up, and informed hy Ihe Court, tlmt although he was convicted, the samp terms would be extended to liiui : he therefore entered into the recognizance, and was discharged.] Responsibility of Carriers.— Lancaster / fs- sizes.— Wntkinson u.' Crockett. An action brought by ihe Consigner of a hogshead of tobacco, value £ 40, against the carrier, for a delivery to the con- signee, afler notice from plaintiff' on defendant, de- manding a stoppage in transitu, whilst the goods still remained iu his hands. For plaintiff it was con- tended defendant, in defiance of notice not to deliver, had nevertheless mode a delivery to the consignee ( agrocerand tobacconist, in Liverpool), named Wise, and who being then insolvent, had absconded from his creditors, and by which delivery of defendant the plaintiff had sustained the loss of his property. Fur defendant it was contended upon an established rule uf law, that a delivery to the carrier being a delivery to the consignee, the only ground lhat could sustain a stoppage iu transitu, was the insolvency of the party, and of which defendant had no intimation. He should call witnesses to prove lhat Wise ( who it was true had since absconded), was at that time not only solvent, font in circumstances of credit; not- withstanding his having subsequently absconded with the properly of his creditors, and thereby com- mitted an act of bankruptcy, lie called several wit- nesses to prove that Wise was iu great credit up to the time of his absconding.— Mr. Scarlett addressed the Jury in reply.— The Jury expressed themselves satisfied, and fouud for plaintiff— Damages £ 40 and costs. Atthe samp Assizes, Mr. John M'Carthy, who had carried on an extensive business as a rectifying distiller at Liverpool, and spirit. dealer in London, stood indicted, for conspiring with others to defraud the Revenue foy the ingenious construction of au en- gine or machine, to operate by a secret communica- tion underground, wherewith it was contrived to draw off and empty seven casks of brandy, placcd in a cellar, and bonded for payment of duties, the keys of such cellars being iu the hands of the Excise officers. The case being clearly proved, the Jury returned a verdict of guilty. At a meeting of tiie Trustees of the Hereford District of Turnpike Roads, on the 13th ult. it was resolved unanimously that a mail- coach from Hereford to Shrewsbury was very desirable \ and it will probably be established within a few weeks. A proposal for continuing this coach from Here, ford to Abergavenny, so as to open a direct com- munication between the collieries of Monmouth-' shire and Shropshire, and the line to Cardiff, Swansea, & c. and also to extend it fiom Hereford lo Monmouth and Bristol, will be takeu into con. sideratiou at the next meeting. At the late Carlisle Assizes, in a cause," SIMONS t). HODGSON," which was an action against a tenant for a breach of covenant for not performing the conditions of a farm lease, it coming out in evidence that the farm was much improved by the tenant, the Jury, to the surprise of the Court, returned a verdict of 40s. damages for the defend- ant.— The Judge and Counsel observed, that they must mean to find a verdict for the plaintiff by their giving damages. The foreman of the Jury replied, no ; they thought it was a very severe case upon the defendant, and therefore tbey gave their verdict to him, with 40s. damages. Mr, Baron Wood informed them, that they might return a verdict for the defendant, but not vvith damages. The Jury theu gave a verdict for the defendant. At the Cork Assizes, 011 Friday week, William Fitzmaurice, the notorious " Captain Koch," and six of his companions, were arraigned for being concerned in the forcibly carrying off of Uliss Goold, with the intent that one Johu Bruwn should marry or defile her. Fitzmaurice pleaded guilty, and persisted in his plea. Of the six others, 5 were acquitted, and one found guilty, and who, with Fitzmaurice, received sentence of death. The Earl of Craven, although there are seven years of the original leases unexpired, has granted fresh leases of his property in the Metropolis, to commence at the expiration of the present ones, upon the following advantageous terms :— An increase of rent, a premium ( which has already been paid), and a thorough repair of the premises. His Lordship gave the first offer to the old lease- holders, who in most cases have since become the purchasers. The whole of Craven. street and Craven- court, ill the Strand, is his Lordship's property ; and in most other parts of the Metro polis, where his estates lie, he has made similar arrangements. COTTOV TRADE.— We feel great pleasure in announcing that the calico- manufacture is begin- ning to revive a little. Some of our manufacturers advanced tbe price of weaving a trifle on Saturday; and we understand there is a brisk demand for cotton goods abroad. We noticed an advertise- ment for 500 weavers, wanted by one manufacturer, and we rejoice in the prospect pf still better < imes. — Blackburn Mail, The labour of the poor in return for the supplies of meal distributed among them, has beeu pro- ductive of a remarkable imiirovement iu the clean- liness and comfort of the principal towns and villages of Connaught.— Dublin Journal. It has been recommended to introduce ( he Poor Laws in Ireland. From the outcry against the system iu England, we were inclined to think, that it might operate most injuriously in this country. But some weighty reasons have shaken our opinion. If the proprietors of the soil were obliged to contribute to the maintenance of the poor, they would more strictly watch over their conduct— they would either find work for them, or would diminish their numbers by discouraging improvident marriages. They would gradually consolidate small farms, by prohibiting the subdi- vision of land, and by thus adjusting labour to demand, diffuse comfort among the peasantry. We are not yet decidedly convinced ofthe policy of establishing tbe Poor Laws in Ireland; but we fear lhat necessity will control events, and it would not surprise us if Ihis measure should be the result of the unhappy cjrcumstanccs of the country.— Ibid, r J A Correspondent in the Dublin Morning Post, mentions a curious historical fact, not generally known, namely, tbat Ireland has heretofore lent it's voluntary aid to England in a season of great na- tional calamity :— I am proud to say that nearly 200 years ago, we sympathised, and as far as our poor and slender re- sources did enable us, administered to the necessities of our brethren in England, when Ihey, as vve, were pressed down by severe afflictions. This is a matter of record, and occurred so lohg ago as the year 1666, a year big vvith calamities to the English Nation. When the population of London was almost swept away vviih the plague, such was the universal con- sternation and dismay, that no person who could get out of London would remain iu it. The Court and Parliament fled 10 Oxford to avoid its fatal contagion. Upon the partial cessation of ihis dreadful visitation) another equally and awfully destructive to the wealth and properly of the Nation al large, and particularly tothe citizens of London, immediately followed, what is railed in history ' I'he Great Fire of London, by which two thirds of that great find opulent City waa reduced tn ashes, anil the heart- stricken cilizeus and their families were compelled lo seek shelter iu tents in the open fields. At this period of universal dis- may, threatened by the great Dutch fleet, England being at war with that people, then iu the zenTili of their power, the King pressed for money to victual and send out a flei t lo cope with the enemy. On Ihis day of trial and suffering, such was the general lamen- tation in lreluud for their fellow- subjects in England, that they called a General Meeting of the Nation, by Provinces; on which occasion, they deplored anil sympathised iu the situation of the English Nation ; and poor ns they were, nobly resolved lo contribute 10 their alleviations with the mrly wealth they then possessed. They presented a memorial lo the then Lord Lieutenant, lamenting their incapability of giv- ing money wherewith to administer assistance to the City of London. The great scarcity and want of money throughout Ireland being then notoriously known : but there being somewhat in their power to offer, which might at least testify their goodwill, and not he wholly useless towards the end they de- signed, they agreed, by contributions amongst them- selves, tu give to the Lord Mayor, aud City of Lon- don, to be disposed of by thein, to such particular uses us they should judge most convenient, the num- ber of 30,000 Irish beasts, to be delivered within such time, and at such ports as were named, to such per- sons as should be appointed to receive them ; all which vvas done accordingly ; and which vvas at that time a most seasonable relief to the Cily of Loudon, and most grateful to the King and Parliament. AN IRISH NEGRO.— A Negro from Montserrat, or Mariegalante, where the Hiberuo Celtic is spoken by all classes, happened to be on tbe wharf at Philadelphia when a number of Irish emigrants were landed ; and seeing one of them with a w ife and four children, he stepped forward to assist the family on shore. The Irishman, in his native tongue, expressed his surprize at the civility of the Negro; who, understanding what had been said, replied in Irish that he need not be astonished, for lie was a bit of an Irishman himself.— The Iiish- man, surprised to hear a black man speak his Milesian dialect, it entered his mind with fhe usual rapidity of the Irish fancy, that he really was an Irishman, but that the climate had, uo doubt, changed his fair complexion. " If I may be so bold, Sir," said he, may I ask how long you have been in this country?" Tbe Negro man, who had only come hither on a voyage, said he had beeu in Philadelphia only about four months. Poor Patrick turned round to his wife and children, and looking as if for the last time 011 their rosy chceks, concluding that iu four months they must also change their complexions, exclaimed.—" O Mer- ciful Powers ! Judy, did you hear that ? he is not more than four months in this country, and he is already almost as black as jet." It is said that his Majesty has had it in contem- plation to take up his residence at Buckingham House. It is understood lhat Carlton House is in such a bad stale of repair, on account of its being situated so low, that it must either be pulled down in a few years, or undergo a complete alteration, and especially as it respects the foundation. SERVICE PERFORMED AT THE EDINBURGH BANQUET.— The honourable service of attending on the King, with a silver basin and ewer and a napkin, for his Majesty to dip his hands, which was perform- ed on Saturday by William Howison Crawfurd the younger, of Braehead and Cravvfurdland, in place of his mother, the proprietrix of Braehead, iu thp county of Mid Lothian, being the tenure bv which these lands are held, has its origin iu the following very interesting story, related of nn ancestor of the present family of Howison of Braehead :—" One of the Kings of Scotland, James II. or 111, travelling incog ( a* was frequently his custom), in the neighbourhood of Cramondbridge, was attacked by a gang of Gipsies, then very numerous in Scotland. " The King long gallantly defended himself, hut they at length succeeded in bringing him to the ground, when a husbandman named Howison, and bis sun, employed ill thrashing grain in a ham hard by, hearing the noise ofthe scuffle, came out, and seeing one man attacked hy so many, gallantly sided with the weaker parly, and dealt such lusty blows vvith their flailsatnong the Gipsies, as put them to flight, and rescued the sfranger frnm his perilous situation. They afterwards conducted him to their humble dwelling, and having presented him wilh a basin of water and a napkin to remove the blood and dirt from the bruises received in ihe contest, they gave him such refreshment as their house afforded. Tra- dition adds, that when Ihe stranger laid aside his cloak, the fanner perceived by his apparel that he was a person of some distinction, and placed him accordingly at tbe head of his board. This was at first declined, but the farmer persisted, saying, " [ le was master there," and the stranger was obliged to comply. Before going away, the stranger, after many thanks, invited bis deliverer lo visit him in Edinburgh, and desired him to enquire nt the Castle for " ane James Stuart," who would gratify the curiosity he had expressed of seeing lhat fortress. " Wow, man," observed Ihe farmer, " I would like to see fhe Castle ;" considering this, perhaps, a sufficient remuneration for Ihe assistance he had rendered. At no distant period, the farmer availed himself of the invitation, and, having asked for his friend, as directed, was with due astonishment ushered into an assembly of nobles and courtiers, among whom be recognized his old friend " James Stuart." He again repeated his gratitude, nnd at the same lime informed him that the King was pre- sent, whom he would soon find out by being the only person covered. " Then," said the bewildered farmer, " it maun be eilher you or me." After diverting himself at Ihe farmer's simplicity, the now- disclosed Monarch desired the farmer tonanie a boon, such as he could bestow, for his deliverance. The honest rustic modestly replied, that the summit of his earthly wishes was to become proprietor of the lands he occupied as bondsman, which was cheer- fully complied vvith by the Monarch, and a crown charter of Ihe lands of Braehead was immediately prepared, vvith the reddendo of holding a basin of water and napkin fur the King lo wash, when re- quired so lo do, in commemoration of Ihe friendlv office performed by the husbandman to his Sovereign, on rescuing him from the Gipsies."
