Exempt from the Expences of Law- 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 Memhers. 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—£ 36,000 have been returned in thin Way to about 20,000 Persons insured, within the last eight Years— an important Advantage which no other Insurance Office existing has afforded. Acting on these Principles so many Years, in uninterrupted Harmony and unrivalled Success, it 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 and untried Promises.

The Foreign news of this week is of a very contradictory el aracter, both from Greece and Spain. — Tbe German Papers state the cause of the Greeks to bp hopeless, and that tlie Turks are pressing them on all sides;' while the, French Papers contain ae. counts of new decisive successes on the part of the Greeks — From Spain the accounts are of an equally uncertain character: some of them stating that the Armv ofthe Faith, under Qnesada, had been beaten & dispersed, & that Quesada himself hud been given up as a prisoner; while others aver that Quesada is slill in Navarre at the head of 5000 men, including 300 cavalry. On Wednesday, Sept. 11, at one o'clock, a fire broke out in the roof of ihe High Church « > f the Cat bed nil of- St. Bavon, Ghent ; it continued to spead for two hours and half, in the most alarming manner, and peoet- ated the plaister ceiling in several pla. es. The armories of the Knights of the Golden Fleece, which are in the choir, have heen reached by the flumes. The most precious articles, amongst others the Apocalypse of John ( Van Eyck), the children which ornament the altar, & c. have been saved.

POSTSCRIPT. LONDON, Monday Wight, Sept. 23. We regret to learn from the Paris Journals of Saturday, that theDuke of Wellington found him- self so much indisposed when near Beauvais, that lie was forced to stop on his journey and. undergo the operation of bleeding. God forbid that this illus- trious person should also become a martyr to public duty. The lamented Marquis of Londonderry sunk into a premature grave, borne down by tbe weight of his official labours. We trust that his Grace has not been urged by zeal for his country's service, to undertake a mission of so arduous a character, at a moment when the state of his health required re- pose and care. We are not, of course, alluding in the most distant manner, to an event such as we have recently had to deplore ; but we have heard, with much pain, from various quarters, that when the Duke of Wellington left England for the Con- tinent, the general state of his health was far from satisfactory. The new Lutheran Church at Amsterdam was burnt down to the ground on the 18th instant. The fire originated in a part where some plumbers were at work. New York Papers to the 22d ult. hare been received. The following is an extract of a letter dated " New York, August 21.— Business is com- pletely at a stand ; the appearance of the yellow fever has caused a suspension of all traffic, aud I feel fearful the extreme warm weather will cause that dreadful malady to spread ; if so, it will cause much trouble in our commercial concerns.

SPORTING.— Strange rumours are afloat re- specting the St. Leger race ( see ith page).— Swap, tiie first favourite, as it turned out, could have won the race but for the revival, as it is said, of the physicking system.— On Wednesday last, Swap heat Theodore, the winner of tbe St. Leger. They run by themselves for the Gascoigne Stakes of lOOgs. each, 30gs. ft. ( 12 subscribers) ; and Swap won it with ease. It is supposed, upon a moderate calculation that Mr. Petre, the owner olTheodnre, the horse that won the St. Leger, at Doncaster, on the 16th, has netted upwards of £ 50,000. Never was greater surprise manifested than at the issue of the heat. A trainer bad fonr horses in the stake, which came in as 1st, 2d, 3d. and 4th. The most favourite horses were either distanced or lost. Money was changing owners' in the most rapid manner during the race; aud several gtoonis of Gentlemen have, hy the event, been placed in independent circumstances. Mr. Eyre's wan won £ 2000, CAUTION TO CHIEF CONSTABLES.— On the Chief Constables attending at the Assizes at Lincoln, on Monday, the 29tb ult. to makeoaih tbat nothing presentable had come to their knowledge, it was suggested to the Judge by the Clerk of tbe Assizes, that in Lincolnshire nnd the neighbouring eiunties, llie Chief Constables were ill the habit of attending, but that they considered the being called on for pre- sentments was a mere matter of form. Mr. Justice Holrnyd thereupon addressed the Chief Constables, and told them lliat " they were not to rest satisfied with swearing lliat nothing presentable had come to their knowledge, bnt it was their duty to make dili- gent inquiry, and ascertain whether there was any thing to lie presented ; if they neglected to do this, they were liable to be indicted for a gross neglect of duty. His Lordship did not mean to insinuate lhat there had been any neglect on tlieir part, but it might he useful to remind them, that they were bound by their oaths of Oflice to make full investi- gation." The Warrant under the head " Assize," in Burn's Justice, should be issued by all Chief Constables to require all Petty Constables, in his Majesty's name, lo make due presentment of all liuiteri that sue presentable, previous to the Assizes.' ' oasts were given :—. The above- named Gentleman, Son of the late j levered John Corbet, Esq. of Snndorne Castle, and j Heir Apparent to the extensive estates of that dis- tinguished branch of one of the most ancient and respected families in tbis county, completed his 21st ; year ou Sunday last; but from that feeling of sacred i regard for the" Sabbath- Day, which, we trust, will ever continue lo he the distinguishing feature of j Billon's, it was unanimously resolved by the numer- ous tenantry aud friends of tlie Family, lhat the festive celebration of the event should lake place on Monday.—- Accordingly, with the exception ofa cliearful afternoon peal, and the erection of some flags iu the evening, few marks of the approaching festivities were visible on Sunday ; but immediately after the clock had struck 12 on that night, the firing of cannon commenced at Sundorne Castle ; these were answered by discharges from the Castle on ilaughinond Hill, " near the place of Earl Dou- glas's celebrated leap, and the alternate firing was continued at intervals throughout the whole of Monday, and also from the Hill yesterday. Six fine oxen, together with about 30 bushels of flour baked into bread, 0 hogsheads of old beer, aud several barrels of ale, were purchased by a liberal subscription of the tenantry on the SUNDOHNE, Al,- nuir. irr LEE, ifAt'OiiMOMD, UFFINGTOH, UPTON, DOWNTON, fee. estates; and it should be recorded, as a distinguishing mark of the kindness extended on the one hand, and of the grateful feelings excited on tiie other, that even the small tenantry holding a eoMage, with garden, and land for a cow, See, anxious to shew their respect for the Family to whom they acknowledge so many obligations, sent their crowns aud half- crowns to he added to the rejoicing fund. The fires at which the six oxen were roasted were lighted up on Sunday night, and being made at tbe top of Haugbmoud Hill, formed conspicuous objects nt the distance of many miles ; the oxen were put down lo roast about one o'clock on Monday morning ; and about 3 o'clock iu the afternoon they were taken up, dissected, and distri- buted— first, to the labouring fatuities on the estate until they were all served, and then to a- numerous body of the assembled spectators, together with a sufficient quantity of excellent bread and plenty of prime beer.— It is supposed that not less than from 8000 lo 10,000 persons were assembled on Hangli- tuond Ilill in the course of the day, comprising a great body of respectable persons, and some of the principal neighbouring families, who came in their carriages lo view litis scene of festivity, which was enlivened hy an excellent hand. A cold collation was provided at the Castle on the Hill for the tenants and their friends, of which from 400 to 500 persons partook in succession, aud " Health, Happiness, and Prosperity to the Heir of Stludorue," was drank iu bumpers of prime old stingo brought from the cellars of Sundorne Castle. — Many zealous and jovial souls continued the festivities oji the Hill throughout the night. An oak tree was planted, opposite the Inn at Uffiugton, in commemoration of the day ; and it was intended lhat a balloon should have been sent off at night, bnt the weather became unfavourable, and this part of tlie design could not. be accomplished. At night Haiiglnnond Castle was illuminated, as were the School and many of the houses in Uffiugton village, all of which were full of friends, who had assembled to witness and join in the rejoicings of tbe day ; and at several of the most respectable houses, happy parties of friends, relatives, and neighbours, joined in concluding' the da_ v'* eutei taiuiuullt by a festive dance. BATTLEFIELD, HARLESCOTT, & e. A capital ox, the gift of the Rev. E. Williams, Mr. Edwards, of Harlescott, Mr. Webster, of Hall llussey, aud Mr. Salter, of Battlefield, was slaugh- tered at Harleseott, and distributed to tlie cottagers iu proportion to their families, together with a loaf of good bread and a quart of prime aie each, to take home. In tbe afternoon, the cottagers' wives and children ( about 113 iu number, including all tbe children of Battlefield School) assembled at Ihe Hall Hitssey, where they were regaled with tea and cake ; and each of them upon departing was presented v* ith an ample piece of plum cake to take home, uud tiie women also with a glass of wine each to drink the health of the Heir of Sundorne; the whole proceeding- being enlivened by a band of music; after which tiie family and their friends, including the Rev. E, Williams ( the Minister of the Parish) and the Rev. J. Richards ( who had delivered a short aud suitable address) partook of lea ; and all returned home pleased and grateful.— At night, an immense bonfire was made opposite Mr. Salter's, at Battlefield, near the spot where Hotspur is reported to have fallen, Mr. Salter also illuminated his house, and the effect, viewed from Haughinond Hill, uas very pleasing. A quantity of Fireworks were likewise let off, and 21 rounds fired iu honour of the dav. ASTLEY. Mr. Col lev gave a sheep, with every requisite accompaniment, to the neighbouring cottagers ; and in the evening there was a dance, which was kept up with much spirit to a late hour. UPTON MAGNA. A flag was hoisted ou the church tower on Sunday evening, and on Monday an oak tree was planted in tiie village. In addition lo a liberal contribution to tlio general rejoicing fund, tea and dancing'parties were formed here and at other places, and the hells at all the churehas on the estate sent forth their merry peals in unison with the general sentiment. SHREWSBURY. From the long and intimate connexion so happily subsisting between this town and the Sundorne Family, it was anticipated that a corresponding feeling- would be exhibited on this joyful occasion, and tiie event amply justified the expectation. Ou Sunday afternoon a chearful peal from the bells of St. Mary's gave no unmeaning notice of the ap- proaching festivity ; and soon as Monday morning presented itself, the sound of the cannon on Haugh- inond Ilill and Sundorne Castle were the heralds of the clanging peals from the several churches, which continued throughout the day. About eleven o'clock, 12 fine dressed sheep, ornamented with ribbons, and preceded Iry theYeo- maury Band aud two regimental flags, were paraded through the town, the bearers having colours on their hats. Iri front, a large banner was carried, with the following inscription : " To celebrate the Birth- day of Andrew William Corbet, Esq. and Health and Prosperity to the House of Sundorne," supported on each side by 2 streamers ; the whole followed by a large blue flag. Of the above sheep, two were given by Mr. Birch, builder ; oue bv Mr. W. Jones, shoemaker; one by Mr. Oakley, builder ; one by Mr. Heigh- way, grocer; and one by Mr. Wheeler ( Raven Inn) ; and the remaining six, with a sufficient quantity of bread, ale, fee. were the produce of a subscription by numerous Shrewsbury friends, tenants, and tradesmen, among whom Mr. Burlev, Mr. Rite Wynne, Mr. Carline, Mr. Perry, Mr. Gray, Mr. Ruscoe, Mr. Donaldson, Mrs. Bythell, Mr. Griffiths, mercer, Mr. Ford, painter, Mr. Powell, cooper, fee. were liberal contributors. At night, the sheep were disposed of as follows : — Two were roasted aud partaken of by the nu- merous persons in the employ of Mr, Birch, builder, on that gentleman's premises, with plenty of good bread, ale, fee. ; one was roasted in the Market Square, and afterwards well served up to 50 per- sons, with plenty of vegetables, bread, ale, fee. at Mr. Barnfield's, the Bull's Head Inn ; and one was roasted aud served up, with the requisite accom- paniments, at Mr. Powell's, cooper.— The one given by Mr. Oakley, builder, was served up to his men at the Half Moon Inn, where Mr. Oakley also ordered them plenty of good ale, bread, fee.— The sheep given by Mr. Jones, shoemaker, was served up iu the same liberal manner at the Turf Inn, by Mr. Jones's directions.— The two sheep given by Kir. Heigh way and Mr. Wheeler were baked in joints, and served up in the Butter Market to the children of St. Mary's School ( boys and girls), and to the 16 poor widows of St. Mary's Aims- Houses, with a sufficient quantity of ale, bread, & c. Mrs. Heighway afterwards gave cake and wine'to each girl and to the poor women, to drink Mr. Corbet's health ; at the conclusion, the whole party joined in singing " God save the King." — The remaining four sheep were cut up aud judi- ciously distributed, under the superintendance of Mr. Gray, to 90 poor families, and to the poor widows in St. Chad's Alms- IIouses, to each of whom was also given a loaf. Mr. Hazlediue gnve a ton of coal to roast the sheep, and the overplus was distributed tothe poor. Another sheep was given hy Mr. Andrew Jones, mercer, and was served up, witii plenty of vegetables, bread, and good ale, at Mr. Green's ( the Glove). THE DINPSEB.

THE ILLUMINATION; This would have been gene. nl on the part of the numerous friends aud tenantry of the Sundorne Family in Shrewsbury ; but a wish having been expressed from a most respected source that such mark of regard should be dispensed with, the illumination was only partial, on the part of such tradesmen, fee. as had xnade'p'reparations previous to the intimation alluded to, and of several others, • wlio, with a highly commendable feeling, wished to testify their respect iu the most unqualified manner. Mr. Birch, builder.— The windows of the parlour and room over it'were taken out, and their places occupied by two large transparencies, executed in a very tasteful manner : that in the lower window contained the Arms, Crest, and Motto ( Ueus pascit ( aivasJ of the Corbet Family ; and that in the upper a beautiful view of Sundorne.

SEVEN Years have now elapsed since the Publication of a Monday Edition of " The Observer" commenced. The Conductors of this Journal, in now coming forward to express their grateful Acknowledgments for the distinguished Patronage they have progressively received during the Whole of that Period, and for the high Place which they have at length attained in the Public Estimation, cannot but feel a proud Consciousness that this SuecesR is not to be ascribed to any sudden or capri- cious Ebullition of popular Curiosity, hut to the manifest and intrinsic superiority which " The Mon- day Edition of The Observer" has invariably main- tained over every one of its Competitors. The Pledge with which " The Monday Edition of The Observer" set out has been fully redeemed : no Pains— no Labour— no Expense have been spared to gratify the Public Taste; and with the full Deter- mination of encreasing rather than diminishing their Zeal, the Conductors, with, they Trust, not an unbe- coming Confidence, claim still further Support. It is impossible, to speak of " The Monday Edition of the Observer", without alluding to " The Sunday Observer," the Parent Stock from which it sprung. This Paper, which lias been established upwards of thirty Years, and the Circulation of which, as has been incontrovertiblv proved by the late Parliament- ary Stamp Returns, has Outstripped, bysome'I%> u. sands, all its Contemporaries, is too universally known to require Commendation ; and we now only refer to it for the Purpose Of stating that the same unprecedented Exertions— the same Talent— the same unremitting Activity, w hich placed that Paper in so estimable a Point of View, and which has so frequently excited the Astonishment as well as the Admiration of its Readers, are devoted, with equal Energy, to promote the Utility and uphold the Cha- racter of " The Monday Edition." It is but due to state, tliat the literary Establish- ment of these two Papers embraces the exclusive Labours of seven Gentlemen, independent of occa- sional Assistants, whose Duty it is assiduously to watch the Course of Public Events, and to pour the joint Produce of their Labours into their Columns. To t he obvious Results of such an Arrangement is to be at tribnted the great Superiority which the two Editions of" The Observer," on every Occasion, where public Curiosity has been awakened, has displayed ; and it is to this Circumstance the Conductors owe the honourable Preference which their Journals have, at all Times, experienced, when Opportunities have been afforded of comparing their Merits with those of any other Journal in the Metropolis. The Conductors of " The Observer" are aware, that by thus proclaiming their own Fame, they may be accused of unseemly Vanity. In this Age of Competition, however, when so many Attempts are made to impose on Society by fallacious Statements, and hy Promises never meant to be performed, they think that the old established Servants of the Public should come boldly forward— openly and fairly state their Pretensions, and, as the Conductors of tile Two Editions of " The Observer" now do, confidently submit those Pretensions to the Test of past Expe- rience. The great Object of the Conductors of " The Ob- server" has been not only to furnish to their Readers a superior Account of every Transaction which has happened during the Week, but to distinguish its Columns by Novelty and exclusive Information, which had altogether escaped the Notice of the other Papers. In this Effort the Means which they possess has enabled them to be singularly successful. Another and not less important Object has been to pay such Attention to the Occurrences of the Day immediately preceding their Publication, as to challenge Comparison with the most respectable of the Daily Press. A few Instances of the many in which " The Ob- server" has stood pre- eminently Conspicuous in this Way will suffice to shew that the present Appeal i: grounded upou no idle or fictitious Foundation. Many'of these Efforts must be still fresh in the Re- collection of the Public; aod that they have been appreciated according to their Merit, we may say the extraordinary Sale , of " The Observer" affords ample Proof. Accounts of her Health up fo eleven o'Clocfc on eftes* Saturday Night preceding, obtained by Expresses from Claremout, engaged for that particular Pur- pose. With " The Observer" originated the System of sending Reporters to all the Assizes iu the Kingdom ; and from this Source innumerable Jnstarices of im'. portant Trials appearing for the first Time, and ex- clusively ru " The Observer," may be recorded. Many of these Trials were brought from great Distances by Express, and, a? the Time of Publica- tion, excited extraordinary Sensations in the Public Mind. Ini " The Observer," for the first Time, and ex- clusively, appeared the Proceedings of several Court Martinis, which. had escaped the Notice of other Journals, of which the last, and not the least inter- esting, was the Trial of Lieut.- Colonel Gore, at Port ma n Barracks. In " The Observer," exclusively, appeared the first authentic Announcement of the Intention of her late Majesty, Queen Caroline, to return from tho Continent to this Country, accompanied with « a accurate Memoir of her Majesty. This was followed by many other exclusive Communications of the same Character, obtained through the Medium of the Reporter of " The Observer," who proceeded to Fiance for that Purpose In " The Observer" first appeared ( he Intelligence of her Majesty's arrival at St. Omer's, obtained by Express. In the Monday's Observer first, exclusively, appeared air Account of the Termination of Mr. Brougham's Negociations with her Majesty nt St. Outer's. Her Majesty's subsequent Departure for Calais: Embarkation," and Arrival at, Dover- obtained by an Express of extraordinary, Speed, which quitted Calais on the Sunday Night in ait open Boat— reached Dover a! Half past Ten the next Morning, and arrived at the Observer Office at five o'Ciock the same Afternoon, The Reporter of " The Observer" was the only Gentleman employed hy the London Press on this important Occasion." In " The Observer" subsequently appeared the most detailed Accounts of every Thing connected with her Majesty's Affairs; and " The Observer" was the first to publish the Charges against her Ma- jesty, stated by the Attorney General in the House of Lords, on the Saturday, " to the Extent of Five Columns, when all the other Sunday Papers extracted their short Accounts from the Evening Papers of the same Day. " The Obse rver," iu double Papers, afterwards contained the Whole of her Majesty's Trial, wilh ihe Speeches of Mr. Brougham and Mr. Denman, Ver- batim, and to an Extent not even attempted by any other Branch of ihe London Press. Finally," The Observer" published the best and must interesting Details of every Circumstance con- nected wiih her Majesty's Death and Funeral. The Monday Observer was ihe first to announce Ihe Death, nnd to give tbe most copious Particulars of the Death ofthe Marquis of Londonderry, nnd on Ihe subsequent Sunday to publish the most accurate Account of tbis melancholy Occurrence, with a Memoir of tbe Noble Marquis, to the Extent of Fourteen Columns. The Conductors of " Tbe Observer," however, must here close their very circumscribed Notice of the innumerable Instances in which " The Observer" has proved its just Pretentions to tbe Confidence nud Support of the Public. If the Limit to which they are now necessarily forced to confine tbis Ad- dress would permit, their Enumeration nf extraor- dinary Exertions might be carried to an almost in. definite Extent. They have only to add, that 011 ninny Occasions, w here tbe Subjects would permit, Copper- Plale Illustrations have been liberally given at an enormous Cost: such was the (' use iu Ihe View nf St. Helena, when Bonaparte was banished to lhat Island: the View of Algiers when bombarded by Lord Exmouih : the Interior of Ihe House of Lord's during ( lie Queen's Trial; and, subsequently, the. Interior of the House of Commons: four Views ofloe most interesting Parts ofthe Ceremony of his present Majesty's Coronation : the View of his Majesty's Landing in Ireland, & c. all of which, in their Turn, created a Demand for " The Observer" almost be- yond Calculation. If anything can be added lo confirm the liberal Principles by wbich the Conductors of the " Ob- server" have been at all Times influenced, it is tbe well- known Fact, that, where the Importance of the Subject required it, tbey have, without Hesitation, sacrificed the Whole of their Advertisements. In Conclusion, it is only to be remarked, that in nil these gigantic Efforts lo gratify the Readers of " The Observer," The Monday's Edition has invariably participated ; and il is with tbis Knowledge that the Conductors now unfeignedly and conscientiously recommend The Monday's Edition of the Observer as one of the best Weekly Newspapers nuw exiant. The Price of The Monday's Observer is only Seven- pence for each Paper, or Eight Shillings aiid Two- pence per Quarter. Orders for ils Transmission are received by the Clerks of the Roads, at the General Pusl Office, and by the London and Country News- men in every Part uf Ihe United Kingdom. TALS. ALL MONEY! J. & J.

BUTTERWORTH, Bookseller, HIGH STRICT, BIRMINGHAM* Tn " The Observer" first appeared a full Report of the Inquest upon the Body of the late Samuel Whit- bread, Esq which occurred earlv in the Week, but which escaped the Notice of the Whole of the Rest of the London Press In " The Observer" appeared, on ihe Day imme- diately succeeding the Inquiry in the Sheriff's Court, the Trial of " The Earl of Roseberry v. Sir Henry Mildmuy," for Crim Con. to the Extent of Ten Columns, a Circumstance unprecedented in the History of Sunday Newspapers. In " The Observer" also appeared, at subsequent Periods, a vast Number of other important Trials, which took Place io the same Court, and which were unnoticed by the other Papers tili " The Observer" was published. In " The Observer" first appeared the Trial of Lord Cochrane, at Guildford, to the Extent of seven Columns, which Trial did not finish till Saturday Afternoon, and which was obtained by Express. In " The Observer" first appeared the Verdict in the Case of Brandeth, who, with his Associates, was tried for High Treason at Derby. The verdict in this Case was not returned until Saturday Afternoon, and was received at the Observer Office, in London, the same Night, by the Aid of fleet Horses, placed on the Road for that Purpose. In " The Observer" first appeared the Intelligence of the Death of his late Majesty, who died at Windsor on Saturday Night,— also obtained by a special Ex- press. In " The Monday's Observer" first appeared the Speech of the Attorney General against Watson and others, when brought to Trial at the Court of King's Bench for High Treason, to tiie Extent of five Columns, on the very Day on which the Trial com- menced. The Publication of the Trial was subse- quently interdicted till the Trial was concluded, and the subsequent Monday's Observer was the first to announce Dr. Watson's acquittal. It may be here added, that on several other occasions the Monday's Observer was rendered Conspicuous for giving voluminous Reports of ail the Public Meetings in Spa- fields and elsewhere, which repeatedly occurred on the Day of Publication. In " The Observer" first, aiu! for some Time ex- clusively, appeared the Trials of ~ T4m!! ewood, Ings, Brent, and Others, convicted of High Treason at the Old Bailey, to the Extent ( a double Paper having been published) of thirty Columns. In u The Observer," for the first Time, and ex- clusively, appeared a Series of most important Trials iu the Court of Exchequer of Persons, against whom Informations had been riled by the Attorney General, for vending Imitative Tea, Coffee, Pepper, and other Articlesof common Consumption, as well as against Brewers for mixing deleterious Dru^ s with their Beer. In " The Observer," for the first Time, appeared, exclusively, fhe Report of the Committee of the House of Commons on the State of the Agriculture of the Country, the Police Report, the Insolvent Debtors' Report, and many others equally interesting. The Publication of the former had been suppressed till published by " The Observer." In " The Observer" appeared the most conspicuous Account of the Cato- Street Plot, collected by its own Reporters, and through tbe Medium of private Channels. Plates representing the Scene of Con- spiracy were likewise published in " The Observer." In " The Observer" appeared the most copious Details of every Thing connected with the melan- choly Deaths and Funerals of her Majesty Queen Charlotte, - and her Royul Highness the Princess Charlotte, vvith their respective Memoirs : with re- gard tothe latter, " The Observer" of every Sunday, forfiye Weeks preceding B, R. iL's death, contained CAUTION To Perfumers Medicine Vendersi APRINCE, the original Proprietor • ofthe RUSSIA OIL, isconstnutly receiving Information that Impostors are travelling the Counl try with counterfeit Russia Oil, aud, to deceive Shopkeepers and others, have made the Covers of their Counterfeit exactly like Prince's, and eieii printed on the Covers" Prince's Russia Oil," and copy Mr. Prince's Affidavit, made before the Lord Mayor of London ; and to deceive Perfumers, Medi- cine Venders, and others in the Country, say they are Partners or Travellers of Mr. Ptince : he begs to caution Perfumers and Medicine Venders ayainst purchasing Russia Oil from the Impostor who travels the Country. Mr. Prince having neither Partner or Traveller, recommends Perfumers, Medicine Venders and others in the Country, to have the Russia Oil from a respectable Wholesale Perfumer or Medicine Vender whom ihev deal with in Loudon; they will be certain of not beino- deceived, as the principal Wholesale Perfumers and Medicine Venders in Lon- don are Agents forselling Prince's celebrated Russia Oil. Shopkeepers ought to be particularly on their Guard not to buy counterfeit Russia Oil, as Mr. Prince has had the Opinion of Counsel, who informs him that if any one sells Russia Oil, with " Prince*' on the Wrapper, that ia not Prince's, subject them- selves to an Injunction from the Court of Chancery the same as was granted to Dav and Martin in short, PRINCE's CELEBRATED RUSSIA OIL ia so improved with an extra valuable Ingredient through which it has made the Russia Oil the great- est Nourisher and Preserver of the Hair in the Universe, will make it grow thick and long, and prevent its falling off'or ever turning Grey ; and is such a Notirisher to the Roots of the Hair," that if it even has began to turn Grey, will restore it again fo its natural Colour, and, if Used often, it will never turn Grey again, and is sure to clear the Scurf, from Infancy to Old Age, and will always keep the Head and Hair clean and beautiful. Gentlemen who have lost their Hair, and have the least Sign of Roots of Hair remaining, by using regularly, for a few Mouths, Prince's Improved Russia Oil, with the extra valuable Ingredient, will he sure to restore it. and produce a fine Head of Hair, which hundreds have experienced. Even Medical Gentlemen have published, in the Gazette of Health, that Prince's Russia Oil is superior to any Oil for the Hair, and will do, in Cases of Baldness and Weak Hair, what can possibly he done.— Ladies will find Prince's Russia Oil pre- ferable to any other Oil for dressing their own or false Hair, as it gives it a natural Gloss, softens and curls it. Gentlemen wearing Powder ought to use it instead of Pomatum : it promotes Eyebrows, Whiskers, See. and, through the extra Ingredient it will now always keep pleasant in all Climates. Proved by Affidavit, the 24th of November, 1814, before the Lord Mayor of London, that A Prince is the Original Proprietor in fhe Universe of the Russia Oil ; nnd therefore if any Perfumer, Medicine Ven- der, Hair Dresser, or any one else, sell Russia Oil that is not Prince's, they are Impostors, as they sell Counterfeits to their Customers. Ask for Prince's Improved Russia Oil, and observe Prince oti the Wrapper and Seals of each Bottle • without, it is not genuine, and cannot. answer the Purpose. The Ounce Bottle 5s. or a large Bottle containing five Ounces, £ 1, which is a Saving; or six large for £ 5, which is yet a greater Saving. Sold by the sole Proprietor, A. Prince, No. 9, Poland- street, Oxford- street, near the Pantheon, London; and by most principal Perfumers and Medicine Venders. Ladies and Gentlemen will he particular, as Impostors have made the Covers of the Counterfeit Russia Oil so much like the Genuine, and e\ en imitated the Original Proprietor's Name, nnd al o copied the Affidavit ofthe Original Proprietor, mad • before the Lord Mayor; therefore Purchasers sbou'd i be cautious, and have il of th, e Proprietor, or of *, nefpeci& ble lender. AHGLIIG. A party of friends recently made an excursion up the water as far as Twickenham; and after a (• old collation taken under Ihe shade in the beauti ful meadows of that place, some of the party- amused themselves with fishing, which gave rise to the following address " To Anglers," and its valve a Reply." Both were written ou the instant ; the first by a gentleman of high literary attainments; and the latler by a young Etonian. TO ANGLERS. 0 take away that wily treacherous hook '. Why are the harmless tenants of the brook — Secure, poor things, till now amongst each other— To be of cold barbarity the sport ? Perhaps each fish that from the flood you court May mourn its parents kind — a sister — brother It makes Humanity, sweet maiden ! weep To see the wanton sportive of the deep Torn from the pleasures of their silv'ry bed ; It makes lier sigh to mark the dipping float lite hidden captive's agony denote, And all its little social comforts ried. 1 love to see the gudgeon and the bream Thread tlie wild mazes of their native stream, And unmolested thro' each thicket stray ; I love to see the dace, in shining pride, Now rush ainid the tierce impetuous tide, And now upon the tempting surface play. ' Tis not for man to lift his murd'ring arm Against an artless unoffending swarm— To wage unequal combat with a fish. So much, believe me, liberty I prize, I'd rather on their freedom feast my eyes, Than view them smoking on the glutton's dish. The worm that writhes, too, on the barbed steel Knows not less pain than does the culprit feel When legal vengeance drags him tn her den ; His well- knit limbs, his nerves, his sinews firm, I) efv not torture better than a worm : Reptiles are flesh and blood as well as men. Enough for me, if, while I roam at ease. And taste, dear Isis, on thy banks, the breeze That wantons there upon its silken wings ; Health's genial hand her bounty shall bestow, Aud ou my cheek impress the vivid glow, And all the charms the lovely goddess brings. Farewell, my rod ! and to my lines farewell ! No more shall sports like these my bosom swell- No more shall ye to cruelty invoke me. Perhaps some fish with patriot rage may burn, Perhaps some trout be savage in its turn, And, dying' for its injured brethren, choke me ! J. T. TO J. T. IN HASTY ANSWER TO HIS ADHRESS " TO ANGLERS." I like the strain in which you plead the cause Of sweet Humanity's indulgent laws, Aud hail each finny tribe as sister— brother ! Extend this principle to every dish, To flesh, and fowl, as well as toward fish, How would men live ?— by eating one another ? ' Tis a fine horse ou which you've got astride, Humanity's a pretty horse io ride ; Faith you may gallop till quite out of breath : But I confess, my worthy friend J. T. ' Tis an estnblish'd principle with me, Humanity would starve a man to death. Tho' I acknowledge all that you affirm In vindication of toe writhing worm— Thou great Attorney- General of the brook ',— The world ill common this example set ; The fish, perhaps too crafty f r the net, May grasp temptation and forget the hook. Why from their native forest take the deer ? Free, unmolested, let them wander there, The inoffensive burghers of their city.— Why downy rabbits from their warren tear ? Or why with dogs pursue the timid hare ? Say, gentle Sir, now is it not a pity ? Why to the slaughter drag the bleating lamb > On ducks, geese, turkies, fowls, voracious cfam ? Why slay the noble ox ?—' tis vile ! ' tis cruel ! Humanity, sweet uiaid ! would have us diue, Like prodigals— on pea- shells, with the swine, And have for Sunday's dinner water- gruel! Yet, sympathetic Sir 1 I've, little doubt But you can pick a tender bit of troiif, Or masticate a perch, a tench, 01- salmon : And though you say the gudgeon, dace, or bream You'd rather see amid their native stream — In vulgar phrase— excuse me, Sir!—' tis gammon.' Ill fine— I well remember, when a boy— Indulged, perhaps, with cherry, damson pie — The caution was—" Be sure to take the stones out:" So, when I see a tempting shew of fish, Hot, tender, smoking, ranged upon my dish, Tor fear of being choked— I'll take the hones out ! F. A. II. FRANCE.— The trial of the conspirators at PoiCtiers has, at length, terminated. Berton, and five of his associates, have been condemned to death, and eight others have been sentenced to five years' imprisonment, and a fine of 1,000 francs ea, h. The French Papers announce the death of Paul Patricio de Fava, Archbishop of Ferrara, at the age of 93. STAIN.— The last Spanish Papers state that General Elio had been tried, sentenced, and exe- cuted.— This officer, the former Governor of Valencia, who had marked his hostility to the principles of the revolution by many acts of op- pression and cruelty, was, as our readers may re. member, convicted and condemned tu death upon Ihe triumph of the Liberals. From some reason ( probably because the law which the criminal was convicted of violating had not yet passed) it was deemed'inexpedient to execute the sentence, and he was pardoned. Upon a change of Ministry, however, it was discovered that this exercise of the Royal Prerogative was injudicious, and the General, with his defence disclosed, and with the prejudice of his former conviction pressing upon hiin, was sent to a second trial for the same offence. Tlic higher officers of the army, who were appointed as a tribunal for the trial, declined tbe odious task assigned to them, and a court- martial of juniors was assembled, who of course convicted him— for 110 man would sit upon such a trial who was not prepared to assist iu Ibe sacrifice. The General appealed : the Governor, whose sanction to tbe sentence was by law required before it could be legally executed, was absent; but the populace demanded their victim, and Elio vvas strangled in the market place. Very important commercial information was received this evening from Valparaiso via Buenos Ayres. Il is tbe capture and condemnation of 110 hss than four British vessels, with their cargoes, at Lima, by the Independent squadron off the coast of Peru, for a supposed breach of the block- ade there established. They were all richly laden with adventures, and the news excited a great degree of consternation among those connect! d w ilh tbe commerce of that quarter of Ihe globe. We are enabled to supply their names; Ihey are— the Ann, Captain Phillips— the Nancy— the Lady Frances— and the Joseph. In consequence of tilis intelligence a memorial is in contemplation to the Board of Trade, in order lhat an adequate force may be sent out to the South West Coast of South America, for the protection of the trade of this couutry, as it appears that the Independent naval authorities- in the Pacific, are determined to avail themselves of the. slightest pretext to seize the property and shipping of Great Britain. The immediate effect of the news was lo produce a depression in Chili Bonds, which fell from 81 to 83J. They however recovered to 83| before the end of Ihe day. Mr. Canning cannot appear in Ihc House of Commons for some time after its next meeting, as he vacates bis seat hy his acceptance of Ministerial office; and the writ cannot be issued iu such cases but by order of the House. So great is the Right Hon. Gentleman's deserved popularity al Liverpool, that there is uo likelihood of his re- election beiug opposed. The Bury Gazelle savs—" A few days ago a tradesman at Ipswich applied to the Parish- officers to have bis arrears of the Poor's- rate* remitted, on the plea of poverty, but it being known tbat about ten days before he had been able to afford twelve shillings and sixpence for a ticket for a Reform- dinner, and had experienced no disaster afterwards, his request was very properly rejected." TIIE ARMY. NEW INSURANCE COMPANIES.— Dr. Price said of the Projectors of Insurance and Annuity schemes in his day ( about 40 years since), " they believe that the schemes they are supporting will last their lime, and that they wilt he gainers, and as to the injury that may be done to Iheir successors or to others— it is at a distance, and they care little about it." I11 the event Ihey all failed; but the Projectors of Ihe present day find it of little consequence whether their schemes last their time," or not; for if, by underselling, they can only raise a business, they gain a profit- able employment ; and when they have exhausted the money they have collected, a new set of dupes enable them 10 start a new scheme, and gain new profits. Two new Insurance Companies arc announced to effect Insurances at 25 per cent, under the ordinary rates, tbe Projector of which was the Manager of an Insurance and Annuity Company, which, after a run of some years, be finished, without leaving the Annuitants and Shareholders a Shilling! There has just come lo our own knowledge, the fact of a most important discovery, made by a Gentleman of this country. It is a me'lhod of cultivating grapes, whereby our own soil and climate may be made subservient to Ihe pro- duction of Ihe most delirious wines of France, and on as reasonable terms as the inhabitants of lhat country enjoy them, and to as unbounded an ex- tent. Nor is tbe importance of this discovery limited, as we are assured, to the cultivation of grapes merely— it applies to every description of fruit, native as well as exotic, and to most of the productions of the vegetable world, whereby their quantity and quality may be increased and im proved to an inconceivable extent,— We further understand, that the Gentleman in question in- tends to give immediate publicity to his invention, and we trust there is sufficient spirit and patriotism in his own country, to reward and encourage so truly important a discovery. Viewing the subject in all its hearings would require more spare than we can al present spare ; we cannot however part with it without anticipating the prospect of the benefits likely to ensue, from cairying Ihis inven- tion into effect, to the commercial interests and revenue of the United Kingdom, by its enabling us to have not only a home supply of such whole some and delicious beverage as wine, but also lo export fo our colonial possessions a full supply of il • thereby keeping lu ourselves the immense sums of'money annually paid to Franco, anil counter- balancing the loss sustained by the adoption of the Cotton manufacture in that country, tbat hereto- fore source of such wealth to these islands, and of comfortable employment to thousands now almost destitute. In our mind, should Ihc matter be borne out equal to our hopes, and the professions of the gentleman in question, 110 discovery ever made has a juster claim 011 the Government aud t!. c public at large.— Matters are this moment in progress for protecting our friend's invention from innovation, by patents for England, Ireland, and Scotland ; and he expccls that many days will not elapse, until be can with safety speak openly and freely ou the subject. He already holds one au- thenticated certificate, stating that a vine which, in the primest of its years, never produced more than 331b. 10 « z. weight, did, undiir his manage- ment, this season, produce 11611). 12oz. of an unequalled description for size and flavour— and 1 lib. fioz. of un inferior size. The small grapes were used at tabic, and much admired; the larger were pressed, are now fermenting, and promise to produce a wine of excellent flavour.— Dublin Patriot. DON CASTER RACES, SEPT. 16.

Tbe St. Leger Ihis year lias been a fortunate event for betting men. What is termed an outside or a dark horse always tells well for heavy belters.

Skeleton of the J? rrec£.— Wftile Sir Michael Seymour was in the command of the Amethyst fri- gate, aud vvas cruising in the Bay of Biscay, fhe wreck of a met chant ship drove past, iver dtck was just above water, her lower mast alone standing. Not a soul could he seen on board, but there was a cub- bouse on deck, which had tbe appearance of having been recently patched with old canvas and tarpauling, as if to afford shelter to some forlorn rem- nant of the crew. Il blew at this time a strong gale, but Sir Michael, listening only to the dictates of humanity, ordered the ship to be put about, and sent off a boat with instructions to board the wreck, and ascertain whether there was any being still sur- viving, whom the help of bis fellow man might, save from the grasp of death. The boat rowed towards tbe drifting mast, and, whilst struggling with tiie diffi- culty of getting through a high running sea close alongside, the crew, shouting all tbe time as loud as tbey could, an object resembling in appearance a bundle of clothes was observed to roll out of tbe cub- house against tbe lee- shrouds of tbe mast. With the end of a boat- hook, tbey managed to get hold of it, and bad bawled it into the boat, when it proved to be the trunk ofa man, bent head and knees together, and so wasted away, as scarce to he felt within the ample clothes which had once fitted it in a state of life and strength. The boat's crew hastened back to the Amethyst with this remnant of mortality <_ s> ud so small was it in bulk, that a lad of fourteen years of age was able wilh his own bands to lift it, juto the ship. When placed on deck, it showed for the first time, to the astonishment of all, signs of remaining life; be tried to move, and next moment muttered, in a hollow sepulchral tone, " There is another man." Tbe instant these words were heard, Sir Michael ordered the boat lo shove off again for tbe wreck. The sea having now become smoother, tbey succeed- ed this time in boarding the wreck ; and, on looking into the cub- bouse, they found two other human bodies, wasted like the one tbey bad saved, to the very bones, but without the least spark of life re- : maining. They were sitting in a shrunk- up posture, a hand of one resting on a tin- pot in which there was about a gill of water, and a band of the other reaching to tbe deck, as if to regain a bit of salt beef of the size of a walnut, which had dropped from his nerveless grasp. Unfortunate men ! They had lived on tbeir scanty store till tbey bad not strength remaining to lift the last morsel to their mouths 1 The boat's crew having completed their melancholy survey, returned on board, where they found the attention of tbe ship's company engrossed by the efforts made to preserve tbe generous skeleton, who seemed just to have life enough to breathe tbe remembrance, that there was still " another man," his companion in suffering, to be saved. Captain Seymour committed him to the pecial charge of the surgeon, who spared no means which humanity or skill could suggest, to achieve the noble object of creating a- new, as it were, a fellow creature whom famine had stript of almost every energy. For three weeks he scarcely ever left his patient, giving him nourishment with his own hand every five or ten minutes, and at the end of three weeks more tbe " Skeleton of tbe wreck" vvas seen walking on tbe deck of tbe Amethyst; and, to the surprise of all who recollected that he had been lifted into the ship by a cabin- boy, presented the stately figure of a man nearly six feet high. HOBRERY OF THE NORWICH AND IPSWICH MAIL.— Mr. Colchester, a confidential clerk in the service of Messrs Alexander and Co. bankers at Ipswich, and who has been in the habit, for a length of time, of going to London with con- siderable sums of money intrusted to his care, and returning with the like, took his seat from London by the Norwich Mail, on Wednesday night, the llth inst. and was returning to Ipswich with a considerable hulk of uncancelled notes, amounting, it is said, to upwards of £ 40,000, which had been paid hy the London bankers.— Messrs. Alexander and Co. it seems, have a box fitted up in the seat of the mail for the purpose of giving an additional security to the conveyance of large sums of money transmitted backward and forward, and it was upon this box tbat Mr. Colclicster kept his seat all the way to Ipswich, except for a few moments. He was accompanied hy three inside passengers, and only left his seat on two occasions; the first at Ingatestone, where he took a glass of beer; the second time at Colchester ; during the last he held the door in his hand, with his back to the other three inside passengers, and on neither occasion did he lose sight of this valuable treasure more than three or four minutes. It is therefore strongly suspected that these daring villains, who have obtained this immense booty, must have opened the box and robbed it of its contents during the short intervals Mr. Colchester left sight of it, viz. at Ingatestone and Colchester. These three per- sons appeared to be entire strangers to each other, and accompanied Mr. C. until he reached Col- chester, where two of them left, and the third proceeded on, 110 doubt, with the intention of occupying Mr. C.' s attention, and thus prevent him, in the presence of another person, examining as to the safety of the property.— Mr. Colchester continued proceeding on his journey with this passenger, in familiar conversation, and had not the least idea of what had occurred, until he reach- ed Ipswich, when he found, in the attempt of fixing the key to open the padlock, that the staple through which it was put had been wrenched from off the side, aud carefully placed back against the box, so that there was no appearance of its having heen misplaced, and thus the thieves had been enabled to take the lock with the staple off at their pleasure. The wrenching of the staple off, it is imagined, must have heen done a few minutes before the mail left the Inn- yard in London. As yet 110 part of the property has been discovered, j r. or any of the thieves apprehended who committed this immense robbery. The Dublin Patriot saysIt is computed that three- fourths of the great landed Proprietors j of Ireland are now living out of our country, to j whom a revenue of six millions is annually re- mitted, never to return." A dreadful accident occurred on Monday morn- ing on Blackheath- hilL The Tally- ho, a Wool- | wich opposition coach, actuated by that spirit of rivalry which has of late been fatal to so many lives, had the temerity to pass down Blackheath- hill at full gallop. The coach in its progress was observed to acquire an undulating motion, and when it arrived at the bottom of the hill was thrown over with such violence, that the side was driven in and broken to pieces by the fall. There were in all 15 passengers, eleven outside and four inside, all of whom, with one exception, received serious injury. Major M'Leod, who was a pas- senger and a very fine young man, lies with little hope of his recovery ; not a vestige of his face is left except his eyes; not one of the passengers have escaped without broken legs or arms, and several of them, it is much feared, will lose their lives. After the accident happened, most of the passengers were conveyed back again to Wool- wich, some on the shoulders of men and others in caravans, when they were immediately attended by four surgeons from the hospital. The above coach was overturned by turning round the corner at the bottom of the hill in full speed; it was dashed in a thousand pieces, and it appears that the inside passengers received more hurt than the outside ones. TROTTING,— Mr. Mellish's match to ride 13 stone, and to trot 15 miles in an hour, took place on Wednesday, over a three- miles circle of turf in Apston Park, Huntingdonshire, for 200sovereigns. It was done as follows : — First three miles.... Second ditto Third ditto Fourth ditto Fifth ditto M. 11 11 12 11 12 s. 40 50 10 < 20 11 50 11 The horse broke into a gallop in the ninth mile, and was turned round agreeable to articles. The two greal trotting matches, for 200 guineas each, were decided 011 Monday on the Snaiesbrook road. Mr. Jacques had engaged to drive one horse 14 miles in one hour, in harness, and to ride 15 miles in an hour. It w as done over a three- mile circle, as follows: M. B.

Smuggling.— On the 30th ult. the brig Fortune was seized by Mr. Hawkins, commander of tbe re- venue cutter Melville, in Burntisland roadsted, on board of which were found 199 hales, containing in all 51531b. of tobacco; 283 kegs, containing 1061$ gallons of foreign geneva ; 20 kegs containing 109( i£ gal. do.; 33 boxes, and 213 bags, containing 15121b. black tea; one box, containing 72 packs of playing cards. On Thursday tbe whole crew was brought before a magistrate at Leitb, when Adam Oates, master of tbe brig, and William Lewis, the mate, were committed to prison, till thry shall severally pay the penalty of £ 100. Tbe place of concealment in the brig, contrived for tbe contraband trade, was accessible from the stern externally, and internally there were no marks of any secret place; a false stern bad been made, and a false stern post; and between tbat and the true stern were two places, through which the contraband goods were conveyed into the lower part of the brig. Tbe fasten- ings by which access to the concealed places was prevented, were carefully made to appear like the treads of common bolts, nnd it was not till Mr. Hawkins bad caused tbe false stem post to be cut away, that the contrivance was discovered. The apparent cargo was wood, and it would seem as if the most uncouth and rugged pieces had been select- ed, as if oil purpose to prevent the facility of search. So confident was the master that bis real cargo could not be discovered, tbat he lay off Burnt- island a day and a night, without taking any mea- sures fo land or secure the contraband goods. On appearing before tbe magistrate, tbe crew said no- thing in their defence, but pleaded ignorance of any concealment. All the persons on board were liable to imprisonment, by a late Act, unless they could show that they were passengers ; but tbe magistrate would not construe the Act in its strictest sense, and because it appeared that tbe erew were engaged after tbe vessel had been loaded, he looked upon them in the light of passengers, w- bo could know nothing of any illegal transaction, and proceeded to convict the master and tbe mate only. Mr. Hawkins, the revenue officer, did not interfere to procure the conviction of tbe rest, though he would bave been allowed £ 20 per man, for every one of them. We understand that this is the first conviction that ha taken place 011 this Act in Scotland ; it is the first, at least, in this part of Scotland.. A woman at Patching, near Arundel, on Satur- day, was poisoned hy taking oxalic acid, instead of 6alu. DESTRUCTIVE FIRES.— About half- past nine o'clock on Saturday evening, a destructive fire broke out in a large hop- stowage belonging to J. Ellis, Esq. situate * at the back of Hall- place, Barming. The flames spread with the greatest rapidity, and the whole of the stowage building, containing eight tons of hops, packed and un- packed, together with a cottage adjoining, were entirely consumed. Hall- Place, formerly the resi- dence of John Cale, Esq. but for many years occupied hy Mr. Pilcher as a school, was the greater part destroyed, scarcely any thing but the hare walls and chimnies being left standing. The fire is supposed to have originated from a lighted candle falling amongst the hops as they were packed. The premises, with the hops, & c. in the stowage, were insured; but we regret to state that the furniture belonging to Mr. Pilcher was not; much of which was injured and destroyed, and several articles of value stolen, among which were two wafches. The damage in the whole is estimated at between £ 2,000 and £ 3,000.— Maid- stone Journal. On Monday night, about eight o'clock, the inhabitants of Berniondsey were most seriously alarmed by the sisdden breaking Out of a fire 011 the premises of Mr. Rolls, floor- cloth manufacturer, near the corner of the new London- road and the Grange road. The premises, which are completely surrounded by dwelling houses, and therefore very difficult of access to engines, were, together with a large mahogany and timber- yard, belonging to Mr. Dare, occupying a space of ground of nearly 300 feet, entirely destroyed. The flames raged with the greatest fury for upwards of two hours, and it was not till 11 o^ clock it was got under. A num- ber of houses are very much damaged; but happily no lives were lost, though some persons were much hurt by the falling of a building. DESTRUCTION OF THE CATHEDRAL CHURCH AT ROUEN, IN NORMANDY.— A gentleman who arrived by the Prince Cobourg, Havre Packet, 011 Wednesday morning, brings intelligence of the almost total destruction of Rouen Cathedral, on Sunday, the 15th instant. It was set on fire by lightning about five o'clock in the morning, and continued burning till the evening of the same day, when the fire was apparently extinguished, but shortly after broke out again with redoubled fury, and was still raging on Monday mo ruing, when the gentleman above- mentioned left Rouen. At that time, the flames had extended themselves over tbe greater part of this once splendid edifice, and the great dome had fallen in with a tremendous crash. Several houses in the vicinity have beeu destroyed. The most strenuous efforts of the firemen could effect nothing against such a mass of fire; and, indeed, the melted lead, which ran in torrents from the roof, rendered a near approach to the building very hazardous, lt is said lhat several persons lost their lives. The storm of thunder and lightning, which was the cause of this catas- trophe, was one of the most terrible ever witnessed — The Cathedral of Rouen was founded A. I). 990, hy Robert, Archbishop of Rouen, brother of Rich ard the Second, Duke of Normandy, but was not finished till the year 1062. It was 410 feet in length, and 83 in breadth, the length of the cross aisles was 164 feet, and the height of the spire 395 feet. There were seven entrances to it, and one hundred and thirty windows. It was one of the most costly and magnificent Gothic structures ever seen, and was literally frosted with ornaments there was not the back of a niche, or the base of a figure, but was covered with the finest Gothic work. In it were interred the bodies of John, Duke of Bedford, Regent of France; Henry, brother of Richard I.; together with many other illustrious men; and the heart of Richard Ccaur de Lion. O11 Sunday week, the neighbourhood of Saint George's Road, Manchester, was considerably ex- cited, by tbe circumstance of a man having1 been shot early that morning by the Watchman whose harassing duty it is to be in that district— a district in which many » erious robberies, attended with cruelty, have been perpetrated by a gang of depre- dators who are individually well known to tbe Police of Manchester. On this account it has been deemed necessary tbat tbe Watchman should bave the per- sonal security of fire arms, and he has usually carried a brace of pistols. Unfortunately, there are many houses of ill- fame in the neighbourhood, where thieves resort and are sheltered by tbe most aban- doned women. From this and other causes there had been continual alarms and breaches of the peace during the whole of Saturday night, and the watch- man bad been kept in constant action. About two o'clock 011 Sunday morning be was excited by a cry of " Murder," and calls for assistance, by female and other voices. lie ran to the place from whence the cries came, and found several persons engaged in a contest, the nature and object of which were unknown to bim. He demanded tbat the parties should 44 stand," or be would fire upon them. Under tbe impressions of tbe moment, and the circumstances which occurred, he did fire, and three slugs struck a man who resided thereabout, in consequence of which he died in about twenty minutes. The Watchman surrendered himself to the Police, and was kept in the New Bailey prison till a legal investigation was made upon tbe subject. The person who has thus prematurely lost his life is a notorious character, and has often been iu tbe bands of Justice. Hitherto he bad escaped punishment, but bad often been warned by Mr. Lavender, the Deputy Constable, tbat he would come to the gallows. He bad heen watched for years with great parental solicitude by his father, but had daringly rejected his natural authority, and despised bis advice. His father had ever, too, set bim a good example. All failed, and crime accorded best with his depraved mind.— On Monday afternoon an inquisition was held before Mr. Milne and a most respectable jury, at the Balloon public- bouse, in St. George's Road, on view of his body ; his name was James Leschavin, otherwise Jas. Lusheband, other- wise James Usherwood; when an examination of witnesses and of the surgeon who opened the body took place, but the inquest was, from prudential reasons, adjourned to tbe George and Dragon, in Fountain- street, to be resumed upon Friday evening. — It was resumed, and the Jury unanimously returned a verdict of" Justifiable Homicide," upon complete proof tbat the watchman bad been attacked on duty, cut severely with a knife, knocked down, beaten, and kicked, which caused him to fire.— The knife with which he was wounded was afterwards found under the body of Leschavin, tbe man who was shot. Fete at Holly Bush, Staffordshire. The third meeting of the Needwood Foresters was held on Wednesday, the 4th instant, at the beautiful seat of T. K. Hall, Esq.— No situation could be more appropriate, forming, as the grounds do, a part of tbe once extensive forest from which this Society of. Archers bave taken tbeir designation Perhaps no tract of country in tbe kingdom presented, before its inclosure, finer specimens of varied landscape scenery than the Forest of Needwood, and it has furnished to the ornamental gardener bis most correct and grace- ful hints, and to the moral bard some of his most in- teresting thoughts aud descriptions. In extensive sweeps, so" elegantly wild," iis " shelving lawns," its " opening glades," its " dingles deep," its " shaggy hanks," its numerous groves and clumps of " majestic hollies," its " kingly oaks"— all so admirably painted by tbe tasteful poet who has celebrated its glory and its fall, formed a scene of varied and unrivalled beauty and grandeur. When it was disafforested, large tracts were purchased by individuals, whose correct taste led rhem to pre- serve the peculiar character of tbe scenery ; and among these, lllr Hall is celebrated by the late Mr. Mundy in his " Fall of Needwood," as'one " whose kind arm is stretch'd between Tbe spoiler and yon Forest scene." His elegant residence is iu one of tbe most delightful parts of this noble forest; the surrounding " rounds have recei ved from the band of taste whatever was ne- cessary to improve their beauty ; and a great addition has been made to Ibe original features of the scene by the formation of a large expanse of water oil which were displayed a number of flags and streamers. Hither were invited on ibe day mentioned above, the archery society and tbeir f. ieuds. The day " as fine, and a very large party assembled about one o'clock lo try " Their feathered arrows broad and keen, Hung lightly o'er their gown of green." The bugle of the ancient foresters was however ex. changed f,. r the more sociul band of Ibe Derbyshire Militia; marquees and tents supplied their shade in- stead of tbe dark glen or Hie hollow oak, and the accommodations provided by Mr. and Mrs. Hall, lor the entertainment of their guests, were throughout of tbe most liberal and elegant description. Tbe archery, for Ihe society's prizes, was continued till half- past four o'clock, when Ladv Mary Legge and the Rev. R. Levett were declared the successful competitors for those of llie first class ; and those of tbe second were won bv the Hon. Miss Cllrzon and Ed ward Mutidy, Esq.— This however did not con- clude tlie amusement : other prizes were offered by Mr. nod Mrs. Hall, and were ultimately gained by Lady Caroline Legge and Ibe Hou. Francis Cuizou. A great number of spectators was attracted lo witness ihe feats in which their ancestors were once so famous. Many persons climbed into the neigh, homing trees, and thrusting their heads through the thick foliage, reminded us of the time when " Satyrs aud sylvan boys were seen Peeping from forth their alleys green. At six o'clock dinner was announced ; this most elegant repast was spread partly in the dining- room and library, but these, being too small for the whole company, a table was set 011 the lawn before the house adjoining the viranda. A beautiful awning covered the space allotted for this party, and the sides of this light apartment were formed ( if the tam- materials us tbe roof. Under this beautiful canopy a great numfier uf guests was assembled, and as tlii. area comnrtffiicaled wilh the oilier rooms, all tbe company were in fact brought together iu Ihe must agreeable manner possible. One bundled and four- teen sat down to a most sumptuous dinner, and the good order of the arrangements, and the unremitted attention of Mr. and Mrs. Hall, made the whole enter- tainment delightful. As is usual on these social occasions, dancing formed the evening's amusement, and after partaking ofau elegant supper, the highly gratified company " wc their way" through the still beautiful scenery of Needwood lo their respective babiialions. The Memberaof Ibe Society of Needwood Forester, assembled 011 this occasion were— The Dowager Countess of Dartmouth and Ladv Caroline and Lady Mary Legge, Viscount anil Viscountess Anson, Lady Scarsdale and ilte Hon. BURSTING OF A STEAM ENGINE.— Tuesday afternoon, about five o'clock, the inhabitants of the village of Camherwell were thrown into great consternation by a shock so tremendous that it broke the glass iu many houses. It seems that il resulted from the baneful practice of using high pfessure steam engines, which has beeu so fre- quently reprobated.— One of these engines was erected at the new glue manufactory of Messrs. Cleaver and Yardly, 011 Ihc banks of the Surrey canal, at the back of Albany- road ; and when at 44 degrees it burst, causing a terrific explosion ! ' The whole north wing of tire building was blown down by the shock, every one of the workmen received dreadful fractures, and two were killed on the spot. The boiler was hurled some score yards into Ihe air, and fell on the roof of the soulh end of the premises, which it drove in with great violence and did great damage. When the extent of the calamity could be known witb any degree of certainty, workmen were set to dig witb tbe utmost promptitude ; the ruins having rather scattered than fallen in a mass was favourable, and several bodies were soon got out. They were carried to ihc Albany Arms, where they received medical assistance immediately, and 13 persons were sent to the Borough Hospitals; two were dead, and it is said that three more had died of their wounds iu the course of Wednesday after- noon. It is reported that one of the principals received dangerous injury, and that two children who had been playing by the side of the canal arc still in the ruins. The loss of property is said to be immense. SHOCKING ACCIDENT.— O11 Tuesday, nine young meu, in the employ of Mr. Comp, book- binder, in Barbican, agreed among themselves to make n holiday. ' I'hey cluhbcd two shillings a piccc, out of which they were to hire a boat, and the remainder was to be spent. Tbey then pro- ceeded to Westminster bridge, where they hired a six- oared cutter; they had 110 waterman, but rowed themselves as far as Kew, where tiny had dinner aud spent the day ; they returned iu Ihe evening, all perfectly sober. When between the Red House and the Eagle at Battersea, it being then dusk, 011c of the party, named Thomas Bean, stood up for the purpose of relieving one of his companions at the oar, he unfortunately over- balanced himself, and fell head foremost into the water. Thomas Buchan, who sat next him, in endeavouring to save him, likewise fell iuto the water. The greatest confusion prevailed amonS tbe boat's crew ; when Richard Marks, another of the party, stripped off his coat and jumped in, witb an intention of saving tbe lives of his com- panions, but without success, as the three sank, and were drowned. DISTRESSING ACCIDENT.— Walerford, Sept. 9.— Yesterday, Captain Richard Devereux, of the ship Success, of London, Mr, Henry Smith, jun. of Rose- lane, Mr. Moses Devereux, and Mr. Patrick Devereux, of Rose- lane, with a sailor lad of the Success, went down the river in a sail- boat of tbe Success, on a party of pleasure. On their return, a little after seven o'clock in the afternoon, the boat went down in consequence of a sudden squall somewhat to the north of Passage. With feelings of regret we have to state that the four gentlemen were lost. They were all unmarried young men of the very first character. All at- tempts to find their bodies have hitherto been ineffectual. The sailor saved himself. His name is Thomas Furlong. SHAMEFUL CONDUCT OF OVERSEERS.— The Wakefield Journal says:—" lt is with pain that we at any time record the delinquencies of our fellow- crcalures; but we think such shameful conduct as the following cannot be too much exposed, nor too severely reprobated :— Ahout a year ago, Elizabeth Johnson, a pauper, belonging to the township of Leplon, near Huddersfield, became afflicted with lunacy, but of a melancholy and inoffensive nature. She was taken, however, to the workhouse, and, by order of the Overseers, chained down in a cold damp room without anv fire, and sometimes even handcuffed! Though frequently requested by lier daughter to send her to the Lunatic Asylum, the Overseers obstinately refused, until application was made to a Magis. trate, B. Haigli Allen, Esq. who compelled them so to do. We are happy to add, that be very properly infiictcd upon them the fine of £ 10, autliorized by Act of Parliament. The same Overseers also neglccted to send another poor creature, of the name of Gleadhill, who was afflicted not only w ith alienation of mind, but witb great debility of body, and for whose complaints 110 proper remedy had been applied. Both these sufferers were sent to the Asylum 011 Monday : but we feel deep regret in being obliged to add that the latter expired 011 Thursday, the 12th instant." Apprehension for Uttering False Coin.— Three men and a woman have been lately appre- hended at Halsted, in the act of passing counter- feit coin, and committed to the House of Correc- tion in that town, for trial at the ensuing Quarter Sessions for this county ( Essex). It appears that one of Ibe men, Peter Young, and the woman, whom he calls his wife, had in their possession, when they were apprehended, 815 pieces of false money, consisting of half crowns of the date of 1818, shillings of the dale of 1819 and 1820, and sixpences of the date of 1820, all extremely well executed, and wrapped up in silver paper; but they are easily detected by trying them on a flint stone, or sounding them. A considerable quantity of false silver coin was also found upon the other prisoners, and one of them had a counterfeit sovereign. Il is understood that two- of the pri- soners, Joseph Hammond and Caleb Cook, came from Gallawood common ; but Young and his wife do not acknowledge to have any settled place of residence, and are suspected to be very bad characters. It is understood that the Hoard of Mint Officers have directed the prosecution,— Chelmsford Gazette.

' An English Gentleman expressing his surprise to an old Scotch Magistrate at the facility with which marriage may be contracted iu Scotland, the latter answered, " We don't find when people are determined to get together, that throwing im- pediments in the way of marriage keeps them separate; they will only dispense more frequently with marriage. You English are very fond of interfering with every thing, and while you pre- tend to be a free people, you have such multitude, of petty regulations that you ran hardly turn lo tbe right or left without suffering from them. In Scotland we leave people more to their own discre- tion, and we have no cause to repent it. You da not find that more imprudent marriages are con- tracted here than in England, because a marriage can be made at any time, and in one minute. Oil the contrary, you will find 11s much more cautious lhan you are respecting that mailer. You will find also, Ibe almost total absence of seductions effected by promise of marriage, so frequent with you, for in attempting to dcceive a young woman, the deceiver might deceive himself."
