JVr Cer. t iVill PRINTED AND PUBLISHED BY D. WALKER AND SONS, Vol. CL— NO. 5237.] MONDAY, O^ T- wtiojjrd ( SUCCESSORS TO R. RAIKES,) WESTG ATE. STREET. ! " W OCTOBER 21, 1822. Seven- pence. THURSDAY'S POST. LONDON, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1322. APrivate Letter from Vienna, elated the 3d inst. says, " The Emperor Alexander is gone, as well as Prince Metternlch. The Emperor of Austria will follow in a day or two, and he will, be suc- ceeded by the Duke of Wellington, who must still travel by easy stages. It is remarked here that he is consider- ably altered since he was last in Vienna, but he looks to me'much the same as when I saw him in London two months ago.— Greece and Spain continue to be talked of KS likely to give the Congress much trouble, especially if, as is said, the two Emperors are divided as to the course to be pursued regarding the latter, it is generally under- stood that the Duke of Wellington bears a representation ofthe British Cabinet against" sny interference of foreign force, and this may turn the scale. . Conversation is also employed on the subject of the states of Italy, as it is said that some changes will be effected in them. This, how- ever, is mere conjecture." We will venture to affirm, that the power cf Greal Bri- tain will, not be called into offensive action in the affairs of Spain- The conduct of Great Britain, indeed, has been clearly and broadly traced in the declaration of her Go- vernment during tWlast Session of Parliament— Modera- tion and Neutrality are her Device.— Courier. Accounts from Constantinople of Sept. 12, state that the lost post from the Morea has brought the Porte very un- favourable accounts, by which it appears the Greeks have annihilated 20,000 Turks. Some of the Ottoman forces still maintain themselves in the citadel of Corinth, but, deprived of provisions and completely blockaded , they will he soon constrained to surrender. Several Turks were executed at Scio - on the 5th inst. for persevering in the assassination even of sick Christians : the Christian inha- bitants of that island are reduced from 160,000 to 300 ! We are gratified by the concurrent testimony of several accounts from various quarters, to the success, of the Christian cause in Greece. A little exaggeration on the part of the Greeks is natural, and in their present cir- cumstances, perhaps excusable; but, allowing for this, their triumph in the Morea appears to have been com- plete. The Barbarian Government begins to feel some- tiling more than the hostility of its late subjects. The failure ofthe supplies which used to be wrung from the revolted province has reduced the Turkish treasury to a state of absolute inanity; the Porte lies', in consequence, been compelled to seize upon all the gold and silver in the hands of his subjects, but lliis is a meagre resource ; and how the supplies for the next year of war are to be raised, as there are neither tithes nor church lands to plunder, it is not easy to guess. The Kingdom of Brazil has anticipated the mother country jn taking the extreme step. It has detached it- self from Portugal by a solemn Manifesto, which is n very able and eloquent exposition of colonial rights. All that Portugal has now to do,- is to acquiesce with a good grace, find, a3 far as possible, secure the friendship of a nation, whose obedience she- can by no possibility . recover. We hear from very credible authority, and from a per- son on the spot, that " a quantity of artillery is continu- ally passing through Nantes, on its way to Bayonne." The writer adds, that " the British Government ought to be acquainted with this fact." It is very certain, that since the French cordon of health has been converted into an army of observation, such an army may require supplies of artillery. But to what, we ask, do these preparations tend ? To an offensive war upon the people of Spain ? If war of any kind is waged, it must be an offensive war on the part of France.— Times. An article from Reggio, dated Sept. 17, sayS, the learned world has just sustained a great loss by the death of the celebrated Natural Philosopher, Mathematician, and Plii- lologer, the Chevalier D. Giambattista Venturini, Profes- sor Emeritus of the University of Padua, and Member of many learned Societies, lie died on the 10th inst. being the last day of the 76th year of his age. The virtuous Cardinal Gabrielli has yielded at last to his long and painful illness. He was born in 1718, and obtained the purple in 1801. It is probable that his death will induce the Pope to make a new promotion of Cardinals. It has been surmised, that the King will return to town in the course of a day or two ; but we do not think this at all likely. His Majesty, surrounded by a few of those distinguished individuals, whom he honours with his pri- vate friendship, finds much solace and repose in the vener- SUPPLEMENT TO BURN's JUSTICE.

On the above Farm, & c. a considerable sum of money has been ex- pended in putting the same into repair. For further particulars, apply to the Proprietor, Thomas Morse, Esq. Ashmead House, Cam; or at the Office of Messrs. Bloxsome and Wells, Solicitors, Dursley, ( if by letter, post- paid.) able shades of Windsor, after the fatiguing ceremonies and meretricious splendours of his late tour. He is in the en- joyment of excellent health ; and during the past week has been out shooting almost daily, among the well- stock- cd covers ofthe Great Park and Forest. We understand, that his Majesty has himself shot six or seven brace of pheasants a day; and that he is much pleased with the " health- giving sport." We understand the question is at length determined relating to the appointment of the Governor- General of India. ' The jarring interests of' Mr. Canning and Lord Liverpool have been reconciled,; and Lord Amherst leaves England to replace the Marquis of Hastings with as little delay as possible. This is the settling day at the Stock Exchange. Dur- ing the account there have been very few fluctuations. A progressive advance from 80|- to the present price, 82^, lins'taken place ; but the business done has not been ex- tensive, the monied men ofthe City having turned their attention to foreign securities, which have all lately ad- vanced from five to ten per cent. The Third Report of the Commissioners of- Inquiry into the Collection and Management of the Revenue in Ireland has been printed. It proposes that all duties Upon the importation ot foreign or colonial goods from foreign countries into Great Britain or Ireland shall be made equal in both countries'; that the quantities thereof shall be as- certained according to tlie same weights anil measures. in both countries; that all such goods, when exported, shall in either- country be entitled to the same drawback'; that all such goods shall be exportable, subject to the same re-, strictions in both countries ; and that there shall be the same privilege , of bonding and warehousing: said goods in Ireland as in England. The India Company's ship Vansittart is arrived : she left St. Helena Aug. 17. The Ganges, Topaze, and Flo- reritia, arrived within these few days from the East, have brought near two millions home to the Company's Trea- sury. We. learn by these ships that tranquillity prevails throughout our extensive Indian possessions, and that af- fairs generally were never more prosperous. The Scaleby Castle, from China, is also arrived, and brought Major- Gen. Sir Pine Coffin passenger from St. Helena. The Royal George, from New South Wales, and seve- ral other vessels, drove ashore at the Cape in August last: the former is expected to be got oft'. A large Portuguese vessel, with no less than 300 slaves on board, has been carried into Sierra Leone by Lieut. Hagan, of his Majesty's ship Thistle, and a smaller ves- sel with 2,0 on board has also been captured, and the poor slaves released. , \ • . A letter received at Lloyd's from Yarmouth, says,—" In the gale of Sunday night, ( which chopped suddenly round to N. I?.) we are sorry to learn the loss of the Ranger re- venue cutter, having struck on Hasbro' Sand ; it is sup- posed she immediately fell on her broadside, and that everv soul on board perished ; but providentially a boat witli seven men had been detached on a particular service, and those poor fellows, with one man on shore sick, are the only survivors out of a crew of 40 men. We are certain that five brigs and a sloop are lost near Winterton ; among which we find, the Hope, of Newcastle; Hopewell, of Maldon ; and Supply, of Sunderland." The new Bread Act, being now brought into full ope- ration in and about the Metropolis, seems to give general satisfaction to the public, hut more particularly to the poorer class, who now must see that their loaves are of full weight when they purchase at the shop. 11 is thought that this' Act will be made a general one. . The, repeal ofthe Salt Tax in England has been a vital blo w to' the provision- trade of Ireland.

APRINCE, the original Proprietor of the RUSSIA * OIL, is constantly receiving information that impostors are travelling the country with counterfeit Russia Oil, and, to de ceive shopkeepers and others, have made the covers of their coun- terfeits exactly like Prince's ; and even 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, Me- dicine Venders, and others ill the country, say they are Partners or Travellers of Mr. Prince;. he begs to caution Perfumers and M edicine Venders against purchasing Russia Oil from the impos- tor who travels the country. Mr. Prince having neither Partner or Traveller, recommends Perfumers, Medicine Venders, and others in tile country, to have the Russia Oil from a respectable wholesale Perfumer or Medicine Vender whom they deal with in London ; they will be certain of not being deceived, as the principal Whole- sale Perfumers and - Medicine Venders in London are Agents for selling 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 Coun- sel, , who informs him that if any one sells Russia Oil, with " Prince" on the wrapper, that is not Prince's, subject themselves to an In- junction from the Court of Chancery, the same as was granted to Day and Martin. In short, PRINCE'S CELEBRATED RUS- SIA OI 1. is so improved with an extra valuable ingredient, through which it has made the Russia Oil the greatest nourisher and pre- server to 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 nourislier to the roots of the hair, that if it even has began to turn grey will restore it again to 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 months, Prince's- Improved Russia Oil with the extra valuable in- gredient, will be 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 be done Ladies will find Prince's Russia Oil preferable to any other Oil for dressing their own or false hair, as it gives it a na- tural gloss, softens and curls it. Gentlemen wearing powder ought to use it instead of pomatum : it promotes eyebrows, whiskers, & c. 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 ill the Universe of the Russia Oil; and therefore if any Perfumer, Me- dicine Vender, 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 on the wrapper and seals of each bottle ; without, it is not genuine, and cannot answer the purpose. The ounce botde 5s. or a large buttle, containing five ounces 11, which is a saving, or six large for 5/. which is yet a greater saving. Sold by tiie 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 be particular, as impostors have made the covers of the counterfeit. Russia Oil so much like the- Ge- nuine; and even imitated the Original Proprietor's Name, and also copied the Affidavit of the Original Proprietor, made before the Lord Mayor; therefore purchasers should be cautious, and have it of the Proprietor or of a respectable Vender.

WOOD'S LAXATIVE PILLS, Without ALOES, MERCURY, or ANTIMONY. THE Medicines advertised for the Relief of Bilious and other Complaints of the Bowels, are so numerous that the Proprietor of these Pills would not submit,* hem to the no- tice of the Public, did fie not believe them to be essentially dij- lerent in their composition from those generally sold. Most, if not all, the advertised Aperient Pills have ALOES for their ba- sis, the uee of which in many instances is highly injurious; they almost invariably aggravate every case of PILES, and are fre- quently the principal means of inducing that painful complaint. Other public Medicines, it is to be feared, contain preparations of MERCURY or ANTIMONY, which, though invaluabla in the hands of the Physician, are altogether inadmissible in a Medicine designed for family use. The Pills now recommended to the Public are entirely free from those objectionable articles; and although by no means offered as a Specific for the Cure of every Disease, will bo found an excellent APERIENT FAMILY MEDICINE. In HA- BITUAL COSTIVE. NESS, OCCASIONAL OBSTRUCTIONS or THE BOWELS, BILIOUS COMPLAINTS, HEAD- ACHES, accompanied with NAOSEA or SICKNESS, and all disorders arising from an overloaded state of the Stomach and alimentary Canal, they will prove decidedly beneficial. They require no confinement, and possess this peculiar and important advantage, that the BOW- ELS ARE NOT LEFT IN A CONFINED STATE BV THEIR USE. They may be taken by Adults and Children, andin every stage of Pregnancy.

SATURDAYS POST. F LONDON, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1ft. RENCH Papers to the 16th inst. have been receiv- ed. They contain advices from Corfu of as late a date as the 20th of September, the nature of which is hiehlv gratifying. The remains of the Turkish force, which bad taken refuge at Corinth, had surrendered, and that town was once more in the power of the Greeks, who, having cleared the whole of the Morea of its invaders, had passed the Isthmus, and were once more advancing into Li- vidia and Thessaly, to join the corps which bad remained in the Thermopylae and in Etolia, aud to resume the offensive in every direction. There are some few further details in the Paris Papers of Berton's behaviour in his last moments. When the proper officer began to read to him the judgment of the Court re- jecting his appeal, as soon as the first sentence communicat- ed the rejection, he stopped the reader with the words, " that will do— there's enough of ii." The executioner cut off the collar of his coat. " Could you not," said Berton, " turn down the collar, without cutting it in that way ?" He was attended by two of the Priests called Missionaries, whose exhortations" he seems to have rejected with some im- patience, but without the rudeness and gross impiety which some of the French Journals have imputed to him. " Al- low me," said he, " to be quiet— I know every thing that you can say to me." An article from Vienna of the 3d inst. states, that all the persons in the Service of the Sovereigns, or making part of the Diplomatic Body, had set out for Vienna. ' JLhe Duke of Wellington had audiences of the Emperors before their de- parture, and was expected to leave Vienna on the 5th. His Grace had been bled at " Vienna, and his health was improving. The Prince Regent of the Brazils has followed up his de- claration of independence by a Manifesto, addressed to all friendly powers, detailing, with great truth and eloquence, the series of wrongs which lias determined the nation, over which he presides, to detach itself from the kingdom whence it sprung. A Madrid Paper of the 10th, which arrived by express, brings a copy of the King's speech to the Cortes on the 7th. This speech, and the mode of its reception, present a disgust- ing continuance of the commerce of hypocrisy earned on be- tween Ferdinand and the democratic party. The most in- teresting circumstances about the speech, however, consist of omissions. Savagely as it speaks of the proceedings of the Northern Royalists, it pretends no victories over them; it is silent with respect to any promise of returning peace, and fives no explanation about the foreign relations of the king- om. It would be impossible, we think, to exhibit a more deplorable picture of national calamity, of inevitable national rum, than is exhibited in the various official documents daily published. The revenues of the State are alarmingly ( lefi- eient in all its branches; and yet in the face of this defal- cation, the demand of the War Minister, M. Lopez lianos, is for an increase of military force to the extent of nearly 50,000 troops. The system of loans may bolster up the fi- nances of the country for a while ;• but it is one which must soon have an end, from the necessary tendency it has, under present circumstances, to augment, permanently, the very difficulties it may temporarily relieve. Letters from New York state, that the trade of that city was removed to Philadelphia, on account of the plague. Philadelphia Papers to the 20th ult. have been received. The only article of intelligence they contain is the follow- ing very interesting one respecting the Overland Expedi tion to Copjier Mine River. The sufferings which the in- dividuals composing the expedition experienced were indeed dreadful. We regret to add that Mr. Wood, nine Canadi- ans, and one Esquimaux, perished from hunger, and tho re- mainder only saved their lives bv super- human efforts, and the power of sustaining almost incredible privations:— BRITISH NORTH- WEST EXPEDITiOn—( From the Mon- treal Gazette, Sept. 11.)—" The Arctic Expedition, under the or- ders of Lieut. Franklin, has arrived at York Factory, in Hudson's Bay, and was about to embark for England. u It appears that the toils and the sufferings of the expedition have been of the most trying description, and that if they do not exceed belief, were of such a nature as almost to overcome the stoutest heart, and detor all future attempts of a similar tendency. It was fitted out in the summer of 11119 and, in the course of the following year, it was enabled by a liberal aid and reinforcement from the N. W. Company, to advance to the shores of the Great Bear Lake, which, we think, is situated in about 67 deg. north Int., where it encamped and wintered. In the ensuing spring it approached the Copper Mine River, which it descended until it fell Into the ocean. Hitherto the expedition was accompanied by Mr. Wintzel, a clerk to the North West Company, with ten of their best Indian hunters; but the wide and open sea, which appeared at the confluence of the river with the ocean, elated the expedition so much with the hope of ultimate success, that it was thought pro- per to dispense with the further attendance of Mr. Wintzel, and his hunters, who accordingly returned up the river, leaving the ex- pedition to proceed in two eanoes to explore the coast of the Polar Sea, eastward from the mouth of the Copper Mine River, towards Hudson's Bay. But it seems, that in consequence of the approach of winter, so early as the latter end of August, heavy falls of snow, dense as mist, and an extremely bare and ill provided wardrobe, the expedition was unfortunately prevented from accomplishing its end, farther than exploring about .100 miles of the coast, which lies to the north- east of the Copper Mine River, and ascertaining, that, so far as the eye could penetrate, the sea which lay before them was quite open, and perfectly free of ice. " As the expedition returned, its wants and exigencies became alarming in the extreme, and it soon required the whole fortitude of the heart, and the utmost exertion of the frame, to brave the hardships which stared it in the face. In approaching that part of the Copper Mine River from which it set out, it was necessary to double an immense point of land, which would occupy a greater length of time than its emergencies would well admit of, and it » as therefore deemed necessary to set the canoes adrift, and cut a di- rect course over land to the Copper Mine River. When the tra- vellers arrived on the banks of the river, they experienced some puzzling difficulties how to get across, but having killed ten elks, with the skins of which they contrived to construct a canoe, this hardship was soon overcome; but the joy it diffused was as transi- ent as disappointed hope. In forcing their melancholy way through the un travel led wilds between the Copper Mine River and the Great Bear Lake, they fell completely short of provisions, and were for many days under the necessity of subsisting upon sea weeds, and a powder produced from pounding the withered bones of the food which they had already consumed. In this struggle betwixt a love of life and the dread of adeath that must, be terrifying to all mankind, Mr. Wood, nine Canadians, and an Esquimaux, fell untimely and regretted victims; and had not the survivors, who, for several days, were driven to the necessity of prolonging a mi- serable existence, by feeding upon the tattered remnants of their shoes, and we fear, upon a more forbidding and unpalatable faro, . exerted themselves by a super- human effort to reach the Great Bear Lake, it is probable that they would all have suffered tho most ex- quisite and appalling martyrdom.— Here they found the heads and the bleached bones of the animals that had served them for last winter's provisions, winch afforded them melancholy ingredients for preserving the vital spark, until their arrival itt some post be- longing to the Hudson's Bay Company. " It is said, that upon the arrival of this surviving party of the expedition at Slave Lake, the Canadians there were very nigh breaking forth into some alarming outrage, when they found that their former comrades, instead ot returning with the expedition, had been lost for ever ; but we understand, that no serious injury has transpired, in consequenec of this very natural disappointment. Lieut. Franklin and the rest of the gentlemen composing the above Expedition, have arrived in England. A Westmorland Paper says," In a former Paper we men- tioned that a patent had been obtained by a young chemist, for tiie invention of a new mode of tanning leather, whereby it was made perfect in six weeks; we have since been informed, tor the truth of which we vouch, that a Gentleman residing at Milnthorpe, in this county, can perform the same opera- tion in three days !" Sir Walter Scott, Bart, and Miss Jane Williams, of Aber- pergwm, Glamorganshire, have been elected Honorary Members of the Royal Cambrian Institution. A new licence has been granted to Messrs. Bish and Gye, the spirited proprietors oi Vauxhall, including " dancing" as well as music, which will enable them to get up ballets, &. C. during the next season. ' Letters from Newcastle represent the differences between the keelmen and their employers, as being yet remote from reconciliation. The former have published their appeal to the public; the latter announced a determination t. o, resist their demand. A gentleman of the name of Abernethy, who has per- formed some wonderful pedestrian feats in Scotland, started from Shoreditch Church, at one o'clock on Wednesday rnorn- ing, to go by a circuitous rout to Nottingham, and to" return, a distance of " 260 miles, in four days, for 100 sovereigns only. The pedestrian accomplished 70 on the first day. The Poor Kates in the parish of St. Botolph, Alelgate, have for the last quarter been reduced one half, and a similar re- duction has for the present taken place in the parish in which Friday- street stands; the distress it would appear, therefore, does not extend to the labouring classes in the town- It affords us unfeigned pleasure to contrast the present state of the hosiery trade in this town, with what it was 18 months or two years ago. About the middle of 1820, frame- work- knitters by hundreds, might be daily noticed travers- ing the streets in vain in search of employment. Now, what with an increased demand for goods, and a disinclination on the part of the workmen to labour to the extent which they did when compelled to do so by the low prices, and the high price of provisions, manufacturers can with great difficulty execute their orders in due time Leicester Chronicle. During last week upwards of 30,000 quarters of wheat were imported from Ireland alone into Liverpool, and the Khole was sold partly to consumers and partly to specula- tors, at 32s. a quarter, calculating the weight to be 00lb. a bushel. At the Assizes, Montego Bay, Jamaica, on 4th August, John Simpson, a planter, residing in the parish of St. Eliza- beth, aged 74, was capitally convicted oi committing a rape On a Negro girl in his servitude, under nine years of age! The prisoner's Counsel moved an arrest of judgment, which was overruled, and the Chief Justice passed. sentence of death on the hoary culprit.

The consequence was a full exposure of the whole amour— Stamford News. A most alarming occurrence took place on Monday last, at the house of Mr. Heasler, a smith, in Pear Tree- court, Clerkenwell- close. A dog of his, which was seized with hy- drophobia, bit two of Mr. Heasler's children, one aged ten and the other eight years, the eldest was bit in the left eye, and the youngest in" the cheek. The children were both ta- ken to St. Bartholomew's Hospital, where a caustic was ap- plied to the wound on the eye of the eldest, and the flesh cut off from the wound on the cheek of the youngest. The dog was killed, and the body was opened and examined bv the surgeons, who have ascertained the animal to be mad. Nothing can exceed the trouble of the family; they have the eldest child at home, the youngest remains in the Hos- pital. MORE PIRACY.— Extract of a Letter from Mr. James Grossard, master of the ship Harmony, from Honduras-, dated off Dover, October If):— We sailed from Balize on the 22d of Au- gust, and were boarded off the Colloradas by a pirate brig and schooner, which took away a puncheon of water, a saw, and a spy- glass. Between the Havannah and Matanza, we were boarded by a schooner, with about 40 men, which plundered us of two gun- carriages partly made, three boxes of silver, a bag containing 450 dollars, 37 serons of indigo, 17 doubloons, and other articles. They then put a rope round my neck to hang me, and gave me two or three squeezes, as I had told them there was no silver on board ; they afterwards beat the crew, took away all their clothes, as well as mine, and threw overboard part of our sarsaparilla and logwood."

GARRICK.— Wednesday afternoon, at the advanced age of 98, the venerable relict of our great Roscius, sud- denly expired, while sitting in her chair, at her house on the Adel- phi Terrace. So little of previous indication was there of her ap- proaching dissolution, that in the morning she > as making prepa- rations to attend the re- opening of Drury- lane Theatre, of which we understand, she was a very large proprietor. AN OCTORER SERMON.— In a village not far from OX ford, a sermon was preached last Sunday, from Gen. i. 20, u Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth."— After saying few words on the nature of the command, the preacher observed, that it was absolutely necessary various parts of scripture should be had in remembrance by his hearers ; particularly those pas- sages in which the holy rite of matrimony was ordained, for this holy rite must previously sanctify obedience to the precept; but as the w isdom of the Legislature had rendered the preparations for its celebration difficult and doubtful, he should strive to make them less obscure by reading what the law enjoined to be read, viz. the Act to prevent Clandestine Marriages, and by explaining those parts which most affected his parishioners. This he did to the great satisfaction of his audience.— Oxford Herald. PEDESTRIANISM.— Capt. Fairburn, a first- rate pedes- trian, undertook yesterday morning to walk eighteen miles in three hours and a quarter for 200 sovereigns; which he performed in three hours nine minutes and ten seconds. ANECDOTES.— Formerly Undergraduate Members at Oxford did not wear silk tassels in their caps. Before the statute of the University permitted their assumption, the Undergraduates of Balliol are said. io have applied to the Master of that Society, Dr. Leigh, to be allowed the privilege only enjoyed by Bachelors of Arts. To this application Dr. Leigh replied " Gentlemen, be in no hurry, you shall all wear them by degrees." In the reign of James I. Mr. Dale, of Merton College, and Mr. Laud of St. John's, were Proctors— The former was a severe man in office and consequently incurred the odium of many persons ; the other was a very short small man. Dale, making a speech on the resignation of his proctorial power, was much hissed and hooted by the Undergraduates present, whereupon it was said by a gen- tleman of Merton, that Dale was proctor " cum parva Laude." ACCIDENTS.— On Wednesday last, as Mary Richards, employed at the Shrewsbury House of Industry Ferry, was steer- ing the boat across the Severn, the chain by which it was guided, and of which the unfortunate girl had hold, snapped when the boat was about the centre of the river then swollen by the late rains; in consequence, she was precipitated into tile water, and drowned. A melancholy accident happened at Topsham, on Sunday last. Mr. Rowe, of that place, witli his three sons, went down the river, it is supposed for pleasure; but, at a place ealled the Bait, were met by a brig, which, coming in contact with their boat, sunk her immediately ; when, melancholy to relate, the father was drown- ed, and the sons were, with great difficulty, rescued from sharing his untimely fate. EXTRAORDINARY CONVICTION.— At the Salisbury Sessions, on Tuesday last, Mary Pike was convicted of stealing some bricks, the property of Mrs. Maton. This lady has been one of the most benevolent women in Salisbury ; and the Magis- trates, knowing her character, and thoroughly believing that a lady of her respectability could not have been guilty of such an offence, instead of seven years transportation, mildly commuted it to four months' imprisonment. The bricks were valued at three farthings, and the expence to the city will be 35/.! The value of all the goods for which prisoners have been tried at these Sessions, does not amount to 40s. while the charge upon these petty thefts, amounts to 27fit. A ROBBER SHOT.— The dwelling- house of Coo- per, Esq. of West Ham, had been burglariously entered, and rob- bed several times within the last few months of property of vari- oas kinds to a large amount. A suspicion being entertained of some of the servants being privy to the robbery, Brown, the City officer, attended at the house to investigate the matter; but all ef- forts to discover the thief were unavailing until a few nights ago : while the butler was on the watch in the pantry, the robber entered the house ; but finding himself discovered, he made a hasty re- treat, followed by the butler, who discharged his piece at him, and lodged the contents ( small shot) from the back of his head to his loins. The robber then turned out to be an old servant, who had lived many years in the family. He is now in the London Hospital. MARKET CHRONICLE. GLOUCESTER. Satnrdai/, Oct. 19 New Wheat, 4s.

A. to be chosen Dean of the Metro- politan Church of York, void by the death of Dr. Geo. Markham.— Gazette. A Lisbon Mail arrived this morning, with Papers to the fith inst. They contain the proceedings in the Cortes to the 3d instant. The sitting of the 1st was attended by the King in person, who took the oath to the Constitution in solemn form, previous to which he delivered an appropriate speech from the throne. His Majesty afterwards signed the oath in the following form— John VI. King com Guarda. There was no allusion in the speech to the state of Brazil. There was great rejoicing at Lisbon on the night of the 1st, on account of the completion of the Constitution. A mo- tion was made in the Cortes on the 2d for declaring Lisbon a free port. It was referred to the Chamber of Commerce. We regret to observe the tone adopted by the Ministerial Papers, in regard to the finances and military affairs of Spain. The New Times, this morning, states the substance of them in four word;—" Bankruptcy 1 and Civil War!" A Paris Paper of Thursday has been received. It con- tains an extract from a Toulouse Journal, which states that the Royalists of Catalonia are in a cruel situation. Mina was advancing on Urgel, while Zarco del Valle was march- ing on the Conque de Tremp, and Milans on Olot, and a speedy battle, decisive of the fate of the Defenders of the Faith, was inevitable. letters from the Cape of Good Hope, of 10th July, give a very melancholy account of the present situation of that colony. The crops, it appears, have been for the last two Years, unprecedentedlv defective, owing for the most part to a kind of red rust or blight which seized upon the wheat almost immediately after it came out of the ground, and de- stroyed it to an alarming extent. This failure of their pro- duce, together with the circumstance of Government hav- ing bought up all the rice they could purchase for the use ofthe settlers in Algoa Bay, has caused no small degree of consternation among the inhabitants of Cape Town, who are looking out with much anxiety for supplies from Europe. It was calculated that there was not a supply of corn in Cape Towu and its vicinity, sufficient to support the inhabitants for a longer period than three weeks 1 The family of Mr. Bowring, taken into custody at Bou- logne, has, we understand, ascertained at the Foreign Of- fice, that it is intended to proceed against him merely for the penalty attached to carrying letters without authority from the Government. Petitions for the repeal of the Union are in active progress, and are particularly promoted by the Roman Catholic inte- rest tn Ireland It appears from a communication from Hertford, that fresh disturbancces have broken out in the East India Col- lege, situate in the neighbourhood of that town. The Norfolk and Norwich Pitt Dinner was held at the Assembly Rooms, Norwich, on Thursday last Upwards of 200 Gentlemen sat down to dinner; Edmond Wodehouse, Esq. M. P. in the chair. Thc usual toasts were given, and the speeches common on such occasions delivered. The fes- tivity of the day, which was undisturbed, was protracted to a late hour. At twelve o'clock this ( lav, the Metropolis was visited by a rtorm. of hail and rain of extraordinary violence but short duration. On Saturday se'nnight, about ten at night, Sheffield wa3 visited by a tremendous storm of rain and lightning. The rain fell in torrentH, and the lightning and thunder were aw- fully vivid and loud; the broad flashes that rapidly suc- ceeded each other seemed to envelope the town in a kind of blue flame, and some of the consequent bursts were fearfully stunning. Last night, about eleven o'clock, a fire broke out in the house of Mr. Webb, oilman, Kennington- lane, Lambeth, which raged with such fury, that in a short time the pre- mises and stock in trade were totally destroyed. The lo3s is considerable, and insured but for little. FOREIGN FUNDS.— This morning, the new Spanish Loan made its appearance, and caused some bustle. The condi- tions are similar to those of the last Spanish Loon. It appears un- der the title of Spanish Scrip, and 20 per Cent, must be deposited immediately. Mr. Haldimand is the Contractor, and it bore a premium of 8i per cent, on its coming into the Market. Most of the business doing this morning is in the Spanish Bonds, both Old', New, an[ l Scrip, which seam to be eagerly sought after. This moment all the Foreign Funds are very flat. The new Spanish Scrip has fallen two per cent. It is now tij premium. From what has occurred in the metropolis during the past week, it would seem that John Bull is madder than ever after what he calls Foreign Securities. And why ? He can sell the scrip, as it is called, for a profit. It appears certain, that John will lend his money to any country, if lie can only get money by it. We should not be at all surprised at loans being raised by and by, for thc Greeks, the Turks, or even the Hottentots, if they can only make sufficiently tempting offers, say as nearly as possible, on the principle of receiving 50/. cash for a bond of 100/. This is the sort of scheme which the patriotic money lenders have been going oil with for the last thirty years, and avarice still so possesses them, that they cannot abandon the pursuit, however uncertain the secu- rity may be, which is offered by these Foreign States. How it will end, time only can discover ; but for our parts we think, that there will be some day or other a pretty explosion. And then, when John's principal is gone, and he can no longer receive any interest, he will repent, and wonder that he should have been so mad after a second South Sea bubble.

A. has been collated by the Very Rev. the Dean of Hereford Cathedral, the Patron, to the Livings of Allensmore and Clehonger, vacant by the resignation of the Rev. Robt. Pearce— The Rev. Mr. Curtis, Vicar of Leominster, has been presented by the Bishop of Lon, don to the Rectory of Sudbury, Suffolk. On Sunday evening next, a SERMON will be preached atWooD- CHESTER CHURCH, by the Rev. G. C. HAYWARD, for the bene- fit of the Sunday School. A SERMON will be preached on Sunday next, at SAUL CHURCH, in this county, at three o'clock in the afternoon, by the Rev. JOHN SAYer, Vicar of Arlingham, for the benefit of the School lately established at Saul. On Thursday last, a meeting of the Inhabitants of He- reford was held, upon the subject of the proposed direct commu- nication between that city and Cheltenham, by the Haw Passage. It appeared that tlif estimated expence of improving and forming tile road, and of erecting a cast- iron bridge over the Severn, at the Haw, amounted to 17,925/.; of which sum 6900/. was almost immediately subscribed. The new road from Swindon to Marlborough, Wilts, thro' the Ogbournes, by which some of the very Worst hills in the kingdom are avoided, is now open, and in such good repair, that the coach from Cheltenham to Southampton, which passes thro' Swindon, ( and until lately ran the old road to Marlborough,) as well as chaises, now travel on this road. A beautiful new Steam Packet, called the Duke of Beau- fort, has lately been established, which sails daily to and from Bris- tol and Chepstow. This is certainly a great accommodation to the public, and bids fair to be well supported, as, since her commence- ment she has made her passage regularly, at thc times previously announced, notwithstanding she lias had to encounter strong gales of wind. On Thursday last, she performed her passage to Cheps- tow, against a gale of wind from the N. E. and a strong ebb- tide in the Severn. We understand, that this Packet is very elegantly and commodiously fitted up. The St. George Steam Packet, for Dublin, left Bristol Monday week, ill very tempestuous weather, and against the wind. She called at Milford, where she found the passengers and four or five Waterford Mails, wind aiid weather bound. These were put on board the St. George, which landed them at Waterford, and then proceeded on her voyage to Dublin and Liverpool. Notwith- standing the extra voyage to Waterford, and heavy gales of wind, she returned to Bristol on Tuesday, ( within her usual time,) in 22 hours from Dublin. The Lords of the Admiralty, it is now well understood, have determined upon taking the Packet Service into their own hands; and it is the general opinion, that their first measure will be the removal of the Foreign Packets from Falmouth to Ply- mouth ; and their next, tbe transfer of the Irish Packets from Mil- ford to Bristol. The only obstacle to the latter measure, was the doubt heretofore entertained as to the possibility of the Packets sailing from thence at all hours of tile tide ; and we understand that this fact has been satisfactorily ascertained by soundings of Kingroad, made during the last week, by order of their Lordships. A spot has also been fixed upon for a slip at Pill Bristol Mirror. The sensation lately excited, by the knowledge that it was in contemplation to discontinue the Packet and Post- Office es- tablishment between Milford and Waterford, is again revived ; and it is feared this unpopular measure will yet be adopted, unless the most strenuous efforts are made to prevent it. Memorials to tlie Lords of the Treasury from Swansea and Neath, against the measure, have already been presented; and the Magistrates of Pem- brokeshire, at the late Quarter Sessions, entered into resolutions, pointing sut the injury South Wales will receive from its adop- tion ; they also signed a requisition to the High Sheriff" to convene County Meeting on the subject .— Cambrian. It is not often that that laughter- moving son of Momus, Liston, has an opportunity of exciting the risible muscles of any other than his London friends ; and we have yet to see what ef- fect the imperturbable gravity of his countenance will have upon a Gloucester audience. Although it has frequently been our lot to witness the peals of merriment which his presence never fails to elicit on the Metropolitan stage, he has never made liis appear- ance in this city ; and we are pleased at the chance which is thus afforded to our fellow- citizens, of placing themselves within the influence of this admirable comic actor. Not the extravaganza of Grimaldi himself is so sure to put the " gloomy Sons of Care' out of countenance, as the seemingly unconscious manner of Lis- ton. We anticipate a full bouse; and we are confident that Laughter holding both his sides" will make one of the audi- ence Sec Advt. The sum of 2/. for an assault, has been remitted to the Treasurers of our Infirmary, by order of the Magistrates at Wot- ton- Underedge—- The Treasurers have also received, from C. O. Cambridge, Esq. the sum of one guinea, being a fine for an as- sault committed at Stroud : and 10s. as a compensation for an as- sault. on the person of the porter at the Gloucester Spa. On Tuesday last, a peal of Bob Major, consisting of 6148 changes, was rung at St. Mary de Crypt, in the space of three hours and thirty- live minutes, being the greatest extent of changes ever rung in this city. The Rev. Dr. Chalmers, of Glasgow, visited Leeds in the course of an extensive tour he is now making in England, for thc purpose of collecting authentic information on the state of Eng- lish pauperism. Some particulars on this subject will be found lh our 4 th page. At Ross fair, on Thursday last, the shew of cattle, horses, and sheep, was much smaller than usual at this season ; the purchasers likewise were few, and prices extremely low. Best cheese from 50s. to 66s. per cwt.; seconds, 35s. to 40s. Welch bUtter in tubs from 9s. 6(?. to 10s. 6d. per stone. SPORTING INTELLIGENCE—' William Barnard, Esq. of Whitefield, having disposed of part of his unrivalled pack ot har- riers to Vernon Dolphin, Esq. the Cotswold gentlemen may rea- sonably anticipate finer sport than usual, in the present hunting season. Wc understand that fifteen pounds a couple were given for these crack dogs. It will however be consolatory to the sport ing gentlemen in the vicinity of this city to learn, that Mr. Bar- nard intends to hunt this season as usual, and that he has yet such a pack of harriers as are to be matched only ill few districts. SHOCKING CATASTROPHE 1— In the relation of the follow- ing melancholy circumstance, another imperious caution is afforded against the too prevalent custom of handling fire- arms, which can never be too strongly reprobated— On the 27th ult. Capt. Stephen Grier, of Ballyharran, near Wexford, ( a gentleman well known and highly respected in this city, where ne was stationed some time on the Recruiting Staff,) went to spend the day with his friend, Christopher Harvey, Esq. of Kyle, in the same neighbourhood. A pair of duelling pistols happening to be placed on the chimney- piece in the parlour, Capt. Grier took them down, and, after hand- ling one of them some time, laid it on the table, as he thought, on the half- cock. Mr. Harvey then said to his friend, " Grier, you'll shoot somebody, and therefore I'll blow the priming out." He took it up for this purpose, when, dreadful to relate, the pistol ex, ploded ! the flint having been resting on the hammer, and the ball unhappily entered Capt. Grier's body, penetrating within an inch of tile spine, between the ninth and tenth dorsal vertebrse, and pass- ing obliquely to the eighth rib, between which and the seventh it was afterwards extracted. He fell upon llis back, and surgical as- sistance was immediately procured ; but such was the injury he had received, that, after lingering ten days, he expired in great agony. The Captain sustained his accumulated sufferings with calm resignation, earnestly entreating those around him to dismiss from their thoughts every feeling of a nature unfavourable to liis friend, Mr. Harvey, and repeatedly asserting that it was purely accidental. It would prove extremely irksome, were it even pos- sible, to describe the distress into which this catastrophe has plung- ed the survivor, as well as the families of these ill- fated friends; tile soothing balm of time can alone assuage the poignancy of their present feelings. Mr. Harvey is the nephew of Mrs. Freke, lately re- siding at King's Holm, adjoining this city.— It is totally untrue that the parties had been practising at a mark, as lias been stated.

JOHN JONES, and ) , FREDERICK SECRETAN, Esqrs. f Mewn" ls' 35, NORTIIGATE- STREET, GLOUCESTER. W. WHEELER EGS leave to announce to his numerous Friends and the Public in general, llis Return from making his LON- DON and MANCHESTER PURCHASES, appropriate to the approaching season ; consisting of Plaid Silks of various kinds, Plaid Norwich Crapes, ditto Caledonians, rich Gros de Naples, plain Norwich Crapes, Bombazins, IJruganZa and Silk Shawls and Scarfs, Cloth Squares, Whittles, plain and printed; plain, twilled, and figured Stuff's, a large assortment; Cloaks of the newest make and best quality ; Pelisse Cloths, good twills, from 7s. upwards ; Ribands, Gloves, Hosiery of every description, with a beautiful B1 younger, for a contempt in disobeying an order of bastardy; and Rd. Townley, for forestalling in Tewkesbury market. At these Sessions, an appeal against the Accompts of the Direc- tors of the Poor for the last year was tried, and which, from its novelty and importance, excited the most lively interest. The cause occupied the attention of the Court the whole of Friday, and afforded all ample opportunity for Mr. Maule, who was Counsel for the appellant, and Mr. Cross, who was retained for the respon- dents, to exercise their learning and their eloquence. Judgment was deferred till a future day. At Worcester City Sessions, there was only one prisoner for trial, viz. David Phillips, an old and notorious offender, who was found guilty of stealing from the person of Rd. Colley a silver watch, and sentenced to transportation for seven years. Some ap- prehension was entertained that this fellow would have been again let loose upon society, in consequence of the prosecutor not coming forward when called upon by the Court. Suspicion arose that he had been bribed to absence, but, however, after a considerable delay, he presented himself, and explained his non- appearance to have arisen from having mistaken the day of trial. Upon being questioned, he stated that an offer of 5/. had been made to him by a female friend of the prisoner to forego the prosecution, but which he rejected. The Court remarked, that it was most fortunate for him he had so determined ; for had he assented to the proposal, and not appeared to give evidence in support of the indictment he had preferred, the recognizances he had entered into, to the a- mount of 20/. would have been estreated, and. much inconvenience and injury to himself would have been the result; the higher powers having recently aud imperatively directed, and it was most essential that such should be generally known, that in all cases of forfeited recognizances of this nature the full amount of the bonds should be the penalty of their infraction, and, until paid, the per- son of the individual should be imprisoned. At Somerset Quarter Sessions, the question relative to the removal of the County Gaol to Shepton Mallet, from Ilches- ter, by means of enlarging the present House of Correction at the former place, was again Drought under the consideration of the Bench of Magistrates; when the decision was against such a measure. At the Glamorgan Quarter Sessions, held in Swansea, only one prisoner was tried, viz. Eliz. Lewis, found guilty of steal- ing a one- pound note, and sentenced to seven years' transportation. CAUTION— A German fiddler, whose cognomen sounds somewhat like Razorback, has lately hoaxed the good folks of a neighbouring borough town, in a way not over palateable to some of the sufferers. Having issued hand- bills, announcing that a concert would take place at the Town- Hall, lie waited upon the heads of the principal families with tickets, and few of them could resist the earnest supplication of this scraper of catgut, backed as lie was in numerous instances by the entreaties of the younger branches of their households, to whom it had been whispered that a ball was to be given at the close of the other entertainments. In short, tickets were bought— aye, and paid for too— by " every body ;" ball dresses were in some cases provided, ana delight beamed alike upon the countenances of the staid admirer of music and the gayer lover of dancing, until within a few hours of the time fixed upon for the commencement of the show, when the bub- ble burst, and nothing has since been heard of this ingenious Ger- man impostor 1 We are sorry to hear, that he forgot to pay his printer and music- seller's bill; and still more to find, tnat he neglected to redeem an old fiddle, which he had left in pawn for 50s. with an amateur, who had been his patron and benefactor 1 *," Thc communication signed " A CHURCHMAN," is inadmis- sible upon anonymous authority ; it- is likewise subject to a regu- lar charge for insertion. — MONEY.

WYE, at the KERN, near Ross, in the. county of Hereford, and Roads communicating therewith. AT a MEETING of the INHABITANTS of Ross, and Owners and Occupiers of Lands and Grounds over which said intended new line of Road is to pass, held at the Swan Inn, in the town of Ross, this 7th day of October, 1822, pursuant to Advertisement; KINGSMILL EVANS, Esq. iu the Chair ; It was unanimously resolved to oppose the Bill, about to be pe- titioned for in Parliament, for the Erection of the said Bridge, and making the said Roads to communicate therewith, oij the grounds that the same is unnecessary for the benefit of the Public, lere being already a good and substantial Bridge over the Wye, at Wilton, near Ross, and the present line of Road from Castle End,, through Ross to Old Forge and Monmouth, over Wilton Bridge, being a very commodious and good road; whereas the proposed new line of Road between those points is much subject to inundations and otherwise unfit for a Public Road. And because it is found, upon aetual survey, to be impossible to effect a saving of more than about two miles to the Public in the distance between the two points of Castle End and Old Forge, on the intended new line of Road from Gloucester through Mon- mouth and Abergavenny; and that the distance from Gloucester to Abergavenny will be shortened to the extent of about seven miles by the line of Road from Ross to Abergavenny, along the Grosmont Turnpike- Road, now in course of completion. Also resolved, that a Petition be addressed to the Honourable the House of Commons, in opposition to the said Bill, and that the Members for the County of Hereford be requested to view the said intended new line of Road previous to the meeting of Parlia- ment, and to give their assistance in opposing the measure. Lastly resolved, that the Thanks of this Meeting be given to the Chairman for his able conduct in the Chair, and that the Meeting be adjourned to Wednesday, the 23d of October inst. at eleven o'clock in the forenoon.— Ross, October 7, 1822.

The New York ' Mercantile Advertiser, of so recent a date as 16th Sept. says, '' the Yellow Fever was on the increase.-— It was computed that 30,000 persons had left their residences in the infected district: the Post Office, Custom House, Banks, Insurance Offices, and nearly all other of the principal concerns were removed to Green- wich, where a great liumj/ jr of temporary wood houses had been erected for their reception.— Greenwich is about two miles from the infected district, on the banks of the North River, to which place the shipping were also re- moved." Tbe Cheshire Whig ' Club had its annual dinner on Wednesday. Lord Grosvenor was, chairman. Admiral Tollemaclie, Lord Crewe, arid several M. P.' s, were pre- sent : tbe whole company was about 80. Mr. Lambton has bought the colliery at Newbottle, late the property of Messrs. Nesham and Co. for 70,0001. We understand that 50,000/. of the purchase- money is to be paid immediately, and the remainder in twelve months. An extraordinary picture painted by Rembrandt, has been recently discovered, and tbe progress of the disco- very is curious. The President of the Royal Academy ' saw this picture by chance, with a great mass of other rubbish and inferior productions, which were preparing for sale by auction. Sir Thomas Lawrence's taste was immediately struck with the merits of this picture, even in its dirty and mutilated condition; he attended the sale,, and the hammer was on the point of ratifying Sir Thomas as the purchaser for four guineas, when a lynx- eyed dealer suddenly contended for the prize, and was the eventual purchaser for 200 guineas. He took home the picture, had it cleaned and newly mounted, and in the first in- stance offered it for sale to his tasteful competitor, whose property it now is, for 700 guineas. The picture is said to be the finest ever painted by Rembrandt, and worth 7000/. The subject relates to Joseph and Potiphar's Wife About a month ago, three Cornish miners, having been informed that some appearance of copper ore had been dis- covered near St. David's Head, in Pembrokeshire, set out from Penzance, in order to trace the foundation of the re- port ; when, after having explored the rocks upon the coast, they, in their judgment, hit upon a copper vein, of- great supposed value, on the property of Samuel Harries, Esq. of Trevacon; and so sanguine are they of the ex- istence of it, that they have offered, and are anxious to take a part in the concern, as far as the amount of their daily wages will extend.— They returned with a specimen of the ore with them, which has been thought highly of by some mineralogists.— Cambrian. We understand that the farmers in the parish of Hart- land, Devon, have bound themselves not to use their thrashing- machines for three years, in order to give more labour to the poor. Many farmers in the neighbourhood of Bideford have also laid up their machines, A correspondent of the Stockport Advertiser observes, in a letter to the Editor, that " A general improvement has taken place in the public demeanour of the labouring classes of that town ; they have lost all faith in the poli- tical quacks, who robbed them of their pence and their peace, and the demon anarchy lias been superseded by a spirit of amity and social order." A day police is established at Bow- street, by which three parties of eight men each, now traverse the chief streets of London from nine in the morning till seven at night. An American paper lately had the following paragraph : " A lottery is. advertised in Delaware, for the purpose of drawing births in a burying place." One day last week, as a journeyman carpenter was walk- 1 ing from Lewes to Brighton, finding himself behind time, to recover it he took the liberty of jumping up behind the carriage of some gentleman that had overtaken him on the road ; but no sooner had he gained his seat on the foot- board, than by some trap- like operation an iron spike sprang into his thigh, and inflicted a wound that will no doubt make him cautious of trespassing in the same way again. But query, ought not the owner of the carriage to have painted on the back of his vehicle, " Beware of Spring Traps ! " The poor man was not able to work for a week after he received the injury ; and was told by the surgeon who attended him, that if the wound had been a little wide of where it happened, it would in ail probability have caused his death. A Frenchman who was passing, and witnessed the circumstance, exclaimed upon the occasion —' We have no such traps in France !' On the last market day at Taunton, at the Market- house inn, a bill was posted up, announcing dinner at seven- pence only per head : the dinner to consist of " a good sirloin of beef, with a roasted leg of mutton and vegetables." A most important invention, for the relief of workmen employed at what is termed " dry grinding," has been brought to perfection by a Mr. John Elliott, of Sheffield, and is in operation at that town. This class of persons have long and grievously suffered in the exercise of their employment, by inhaling the mixed particles of metal " and dust arising from the stones; and, in most instances, the disorder so produced, lias baffled the best medical skill, and' the sufferers have sunk into premature graves. The remedy is described as most simple— the evolution of the grinding- stone,' by which the evil has hitherto been occa- sioned, being made, under proper regulation, its remedy, bycwrjitngoff the prejudicial matter produced in operation, and in enabling the workmen to breath a pure atmosphere. •— Mr.' Elliott is about to introduce the invention among the needle pointers at Redditch; and as dry grinding pre- vails in some, of our own manufactories, we are desirous of calling the attention of masters to so valuable a disco- very. Mr. E. we understand, waives all " patent right," and most generously devotes the full benefit of his inven- tion to the public.— Manchester Journal. We some time ago noticed the invention of a machine, by which the power of steam was rendered subservient to the purpose of breaking stone for the construction of roads. This machine, since the time of our former paragraph, has been constantly and successfully in use on the new road lading from Bury to Bolton ; and a few days ago a large party of gentlemen, many of them trustees of roads, and conversant in machines, were invited to inspect it when at work ; <( 11 of whom were so well satisfied with its merits and application tolhe purpose intended, as to think it de- serving of general use in similar undertakings. It is com- posed of twojjuted rollers, placed side by side, about an inch apart, iln turning different ways. " The stones are put in a kind of hopper above, and are pushed down with a rake so as to afford a regular supply to the rollers. This machine is"' worked by one of Kay and Routledge's rota- tory engines, of eight horse power, and will break a ton of hard pebbles very completely in from six to eight minutes. The whole is capable of being removed at a small expence to any part of the road where it may be wanted.— Man- chester. Gazette. Saturday" a. young man was observed walking in a very agitated manner in Hyde Park; at length he called a- boy to him and gave him a letter, requesting him to deliver it as directed, and soon after pulled a pistol from bis pocket, and discharging it in his mouth, blew his head to atoms. The letter was directed to a friend in Clerkenwell, and communicated his dire intention, inconsequence of a breach of integrity in his master's service. Wheeler, a most notorious pickpoket, is at length com- mitted for trial for stealing a pocket- book from the pocket of a Mr. Wickens, in Bermondsey. Wheeler has carried on the trade for 20 years; is rich; and for 15 years has had a solicitor in regular pay ! On the 4th inst. was committed to Ilchester Gaol, Evan Morgan, charged with stealing a horse, the property of a gentleman at Pill, near Newport, Monmouthshire.— Mor- gan attended Bridgewater fair with the horse for sale, and went to the Crown Tavern to borrow a bridle and saddle, where he was apprehended on suspicion by Mr. C. Knight, and on examination fully confessed the crime. At Guildhall, on Monday, a Mrs. Shepherd, the wife of a clothes salesman, in Spitalfields, was charged with at- tempting to defraud Mr. Reeves, pawnbroker, on Snow- hill, by pledging what is termed a—" clobbered" coat. By an ingenious contrivance, a nap is raised on thread- bare garments, and after the application of the proper dye, coats scarcely worth 3s. are made to appear worth as many pounds-; and at one house alone, 150/. has been lent re- cently on articles of this description, whose real value is not one fourth of the sum. In the present case, a coat • not worth u, had been offered for 18s. and the prisoner represented herself as living at 48, Long- lane. Shepherd, . husband, asserted that the coat was nearly new, and ' invited the judgment of any tailor who might be present, r Unfortunately there was none. The defects, however, when pointed out by the shopman, were apparent. As no ' money had beeii paid, the fraud Was not completed, and the prisoner was discharged.

BOWRING.— A long correspondence has been published, respecting the arrest of an English Gentleman named Bowring, who was detained at Calais oil the bth inst. m consequence of in order from Paris, communicated by telegraph. Mr. Bowring wis seized as he was about to embark for his na- tive country ; lit was thrown into prison, his papers seized, and fifteen letters, of which he was the bearer, ( it does not appear whe- ther he had more were detained., One of these letters was a dis- patch from the Portuguese . Minister at Paris to the Portuguese Ambassador at London. From Mr. Bowling's letter we learn,_ that the alleged cause of his arrest was his " being the bearer of letters to the revolutionists in England ;" an explanation which sufficiently accounts for the detention of the letters in his charge. In the course of his examination on the 7th, Mr. Bowring learned that one of the grounds of his detention relates to some; verses m the French language, which he suspects to have been left upon his table by a spy, to whose- vigilant attention he was exposed while he resided in Paris. During the early part of his abode ill the Boulogne prison, Mr. Bowring, it appears, was indulged in a free intercourse with his friends, and had an opportunity of writing to his friends in London, and to the British Ambassador at Paris ; hut on Friday his confinement was rendered so much more strict, that his friend Mr. Blaquier, and the British Consul, Mr. Hamil- ton, were refused admission to his apartment, which is said to be a damp dungeon. It is not very easy to form a satisfactory judgment upon this strange transaction. As a merchant Mr. Bowring represents a class, whose privileges have been always regarded among civilized nations with particular favour ; and as a poet, of no mean rank, he has, in the Russian Anthology, made the British nation his debtor for a valuable addition to our literary wealth. We are. there- fore naturally disposed to condemn and reser. t the harshness with which he has been manifestly treated, without any reference to the merits ofthe case. Justice to the French Government, however, compels us to examine these merits a little closely before we form a final judgment. The late trials in France ( or rather the dying declarations ofthe lately convicted criminals, which are much more satisfactory than French trials) prove, beyond a doubt, that the Bourbon Government is exposed to the most serious danger from the intrigues of a traitorous party ill that kingdom, too formidable by their numbers to be overlooked or pardoned. The Papers are daily filled with articles ill verse and in prose, in French and in English, that, if they related to the English Go- vernment,- instead of the French, would unquestionably amount fo High Treason, and prove that there is ill this country a party, whether English or French, exceedingly desirous of the overthrow ofthe French Government., It is therefore excusable in that Go- vernment, if it suspects the existence of any communication be- tween the traitors in France and the party which is hostile to it in England, to take all lawful means necessary to inform itself of the nature ofthe relations subsisting between its enemies in the differ- ent kingdoms. The question, therefore, comes to this,— were the arrest of Mr. Bowring, and the detention of his papers, conform- able to the law of France ? In our present ignorance of French law, we cannot positively answer this question, but if daily prac- tice be a proof of the law, we have evidence enough of the right of the French Government to arrest upon suspicion. It is highly gratifying to us to know upon Mr. Bowring's assertion, the truth of which it is impossible to question, that lie is not iu any way im- plicated in the ill designs imputed to the correspondence of which he was the bearer; and it is therefore much to be regretted that that correspondence has subjeeted him to inconvenience ; but, af- ter all, his conduct cannot be altogether acquitted of the charge of indiscretion. As the bearer of sealed letters, Mr. Bowring must upon the plain- est principles of common sense, be presumed to be ignorant of their contents ; yet he must be presumed cognizant of the writers of them ; and if the letters are treasonable, the Government has a right to his evidence against those persons who have made him the unconscious instrument of their treason ; and if Mr. Bowring withholds, as a man of honour would be very much disposed to do, this evidence, the French Government has a right to punish his contumacy by imprisonment. As to the Portuguese dispatch, we have no reason to regard its seizure in a different light from the seizure ofthe other fourteen letters. The affront, if any, belongs to the King of Portugal. Ill the meantime it is gratifying to find, that the subject has been taken up promptly by our Government. FOREIGN FUNDS.— The attention of the speculators in foreign stock, was attracted almost exclusively on SaUirday, to the new Loan of 1,200,000/. f'or the Government at Peru, the price of which has, like all other securities of a similar description, under- gone great fluctuation on its first appearance at market in London. It bears an interest of six per cent, per annum, and the instal- ments are to be made at. six different periods,— the first 12 per cent, to be made good on the 17th instant, and the last to be forthcom- ing oil the 12th of May. The price the Scrip obtained for Satur- day, is a clear proof that the public entertain little doubt as to the stability of affairs in Peru, and think lightly of the comparatively insignificant force ofthe Royalists opposed to the independence of the Provinces. A very novel method of selling the stock was adopted by the contractors, by bringing it to the Itoyal Exchange, and receiving biddings from the dealers. As might have been ex- pected great confusion took place, and the person employed for this purpose, was rather roughly handled by the mob collected, amounting to several hundred people. The first price at which any of the Stock was sold was 88, but it rose to 88 in the course of half an hour, and before 12 o'clock 90 was obtained for it, and we know of one party who purchased not less than 100,000/. at the latter quotation. In the course of the afternoon, the eagerness for purchasing this Stock subsided, and the price fell to 86 before four o'clock. The new Spanish Loan, said to be contracted for by Messrs. Haldemand and Co. has not yet made its appearance in the mar- ket. The old Spanish Stock has not undergone nearly so much fluctuation as the scrip, which has varied full 6 per cent, and has been sold lower to day than at any time during the week. This remark will apply to most of the other foreign securities, but much less business has been transacted in them. SMUGGLING.— The Waterford Mirror says—" Yester- day ( October 8), George Boate, Esq. Surveyor of this port, in ex- amining 36 pipes entered as cider from the John and Sophia, How- ard, from Jersey, having taken the precaution of dipping the pipes diagonally, found that 30 of them had, near each end, a well- coo- pered tub, or half of a hogshead, containing a hundred weight of tobacco. The tubs were surrounded with a liquor called cider, and were, by small pieces of stick, preserved ata respectful distance from the sides, ends, and centres of the pipes. The vessel, with the rest of her cargo, reported cider and apples, was immediately seized. The Captain and the crew were detained, in order to be examined this day." ELOPEMENTS.— In the early part of last week, a Gen- tleman and Lady, who passed for man and wife, came to Camel- ford, and took up their abode at one of the inns at that place. The next day a Gentleman, who had the appearance of a Clergy- man, came to the town, and speedily recognised the Lady as his wife, the mother of several children, who had eloped with a mar- ried man, the father of a large family. The distressed husband used every means of persuasion in his power to induce the infatu- ated woman to return home, but in vain ; she could not be per- suaded to quit her paramour, and the unfortunate man was com- pelled to leave her to her fate. The affair becoming known, the inhabitants expressed so much indignation at this atrocious case, that'the Officer and his companion felt it necessary to change their quarters, which they did on Thursday evening. The parties are the Rev. Mr. L. of Bideford, and Lieut. S, a Naval Officer on half- pay, resident there. A story, neither very accurate, nor sufficiently specific to prevent injurious mistakes, has found its way into the newspapers, regard- ing an elopement from Harrowgate, the leading particulars of which it is now proper to relate. It appears, that two young wo- men, in the shop of Mrs. Overton, the milliner, were sent home to Leeds from Harrowgate about three weeks ago, mounted upon a palfrey ; but from some cause not explained, they missed their way and strayed to Wetherby. Here, quitting their humble con- veyance, they proceeded to Doncaster Races, accompanied by two military gentlemen, and from thence to London. On receiving this distressing intelligence, the father and brother of one of the young women, posted off from the neighbourhood of Derby, where they reside, and after a diligent search, at length succeeded! ill find- ing the poor infatuated girls, elegantly attired, in handsome lodg ings, and on the high load to ruin. With some difficulty tiiey were persuaded to quit the protection of their paramours, and to return to the much more wholesome, though less attractive protec- tion of their distressed friends. We abstain for the present from publishing the names of the. to nes, who have achieved this victory over female infirmity and parental care. EXTRAORDINARY FRAUD.— A most successful and dar- ing fraud has been committed on some of the most respectable in- dividuals of Liverpool, by two Frenchmen, calling themselves Count St. Julien and Chevalier Villeneuve. By some means or other they contrived to impose on all eminent banker of Birming- ham, who gave them letters to a merchant of that town. They were received by him in a very hospitable manner, and he invited a party to meet them at his table, This, of course, gave them cur- rency in society— they were invited to the house of another gentle- man, and soon formed a pretty extensive acquaintance. They represented themselves as a Colonel and Major in the army, flee- ing from France as, actors in Berthon's conspiracy. A subscrip- tion was made for them, and they soon after embarked for Ma- ranham. On their arrival there, they contrived to swindle some of the merchants, and immediately returned to Liverpool. Their villainy was not discovered, and they were again received into so- ciety— they had obtained permission to return to France, and a gentleman of this town agreed to accompany them. Previously to their departure they visited all the public buildings, the schools and charities, and appeared to take a great, interest in every thing connected with education. On their arrival in London, passports were obtained : our Liverpool friend had occasion to get his watch repaired before lie set off, and Count St. Julien accompanied him to the shop. He was told it would take some time, and'as he could not wait, the watchmaker lent him another. It is almost needless to say, that before they left London the Count contrived to get the watch out of the shop, on some pretence or other. On their arrival in France, the Count pretended that his pocket had been picked, and our townsman generously offered them what money they required : on reaching the capital they were to take their guest to the chateau ofthe Count's mother; but it happened, most, unexpectedly, that the good lady was from home, at which circumstance the greatest disappointment was expressed. How- ever they agreed to dine at a restaurateur's in the evening ; and as Villeneuve had to go in the country he borrowed our towns- man's borrowed watch, in order that lie might be exact. The time f'or dinner had arrived, but the crafty dogs'came not. Our towns- man began fin think that a warning lie received from a sharp- sighted friend before he left Liverpool, was not without four, da- ion. He returned to the Hotel, found a letter addressed by Vil- leneuve to the Count— he opened it, and read, " we have been discovered, meet me at such an hour (—) at a house in such a street. (—) at Versailles, to- morrow." Our friend immediately determined to go there " himself: he did so, but found no such street or house: he returned, went to his bed room, and found that in his absence his portmanteau had been opened by the key which was appended to the lent watch, and every thing had been carried off— We understand these clever fellows left no trace whatever by which they are likely to be detected, and many of our friends are one laughing at the other for having been so thoroughly duped— Liverpool Mercury, PAUPERISM.— The Rev. Dr. Chalmers, of Glasgow, who hits for several years assiduously devoted his attention to the subject of Pauperism and the Poor Laws, and who has published some works containing the result both of his speculations and experi- ence, visited this town oil Thursday last, in the course of ail ex- tensive tour which he is now making through England, in order to collect authentic information on the state of English pauperism. Having signified to the Mayor his wish to meet the parish officers of the town, a meeting was convened and held accordingly, at the Court- house, at seven o'clock in the evening, at which nearly all the parish officers and many members of the corporation attended. Dr. Chalmers briefly stated his object in desiring this interview, which was to gain such information, as might enable him to judge of the practicability of reforming the poor laws, and reducing pau- perism, in England. He had met with one parish, where the ma- nagement of the poor was so good, that in a population of eight hundred people, only 24/. per annum was expended in the re. lief of paupers. In those parts of Scotland where the English systerii of compulsory relief had not been introduced, the poor were thrown more on their own resources; by which lie meant not only on their own economy and providential habits, but also on the kindness of their relations, for support in time of exigency. In the manufac- turing city of Glasgow, he considered they were about half as far gone in pauperism as at Manchester. When he removed from his former parish to that city, he found the parish of St. John's, in which he was then situated, like the other parishes of Glasgow ; but he formed the design of carrying it back to the old state, i. e. doing away with the English system of parochial relief. His suc- cess had been greater than he could possibly have expected ; the svstem of pauperism had been in a great measure done away, and the people were now better off than they had been before. He came hither as a learner; his object was to collect authentic par- ticulars concerning the state of pauperism in England; and lie was greatly obliged to the Mayor for having brought him into contact with gentlemen so well able to give the information he was in want of. Dr. Chalmers then proceeded to put a series of questions, cal- culated to educe the information which he desired concerning the svstem of parochial management, the amount of poor rate, the treatment of Irish and Scotch, paupers, & c- to which he generally received ready and specific answers. When he made the inquiry, whether the system of parochial relief in this town had teuued to lower the independent spirit of the poor, and render them less re- luctant to apply for parish aid, he received a general and decisive answer in the affirmative. He asked whether the Act passed a few years ago, empowering parishes to remove Irish paupers who ap- plied for relief, had been carried into effect in this town ; and was informed that it had at the time been acted upon, that some remo- vals had taken place, and that the effect was the cessation of ap- plications for relief from the Irish, who did not, however, in any considerable numbers- leave the town, but who, thrown upon their FONTHILL ABBEY — The whole of this property, es- tate, mansion, and furniture, is disposed of by private contract to John Farquhar, Esq. for 330,000/. as mentioned in our last. We understand that the timber is estimated at 100,000/.; that the building has not cost so little as 400,000/; and that since the pre- sent possessor, Mr. Beckford, came of age, he has laid out at least a million sterling in beautifying and embellishing this most splen- did domain. The following short memoir of the purchaser is from a Morning Paper: " Mr. Farquhar, the purchaser of Fonthill, is a man of extraor. dinary character and habits. His history will add another to the many instances of the accumulation of wealth from successful in- " dustrv and attendant savings. Mr. Farquhar is a native of Aber- deen," and went out early in life to India, where he was employed - for some time in a subordinate situation in the- medical depart- ment. His mind was ever pccupied in study, and chemical re- search was his favourite pursuit: from its practical application the foundation of his present immense fortune was laid. There was some defect, in the mode of manufacturing gun- powder in the interior, and Mr. Farquhar was selected to give his assistance; by degrees he got the management of the concern, and finally be- came the sole contractor with the Government. In this way wealth and distinction poured rapidly in upon him, nnd he at- tained the particular favour and confidence of the late Mr. Warren Hastings. In Bengal, he was remarkable for the closeness of his application, unabating perseverance, and extraordinary mental vi- gour, and also for the same habits of penuriousness which he still adheres to. After years of labour he came home from India, with a fortune estimated at half a million of money, the principal part of which was invested, through his bankers, Messrs. Hoare, Bar- netts, and Co. ill the funds, at the rate of 55/. for 100/. 3 per Cent. Consols. On landing at Gravesend, Mr. Farquhar travelled on the outside of the coach to London, and his first visit very natu- rally was to his banker. Covered with dust and dirt, with clothes not worth a guinea, he presented himself at thecounter, and asked to see Mr. Hoare. The clerks disregarded his application, and lie was suffered to wait in the cash office, as a poor petitioner, until Mr. Hoare, passing through it, after some explanation, recognized his Indian customer— the man who he expected to see with a na- bob's pomp. Mr. Farquhar requested 10/. and took Ids leave. [ After quitting the banking- house, he went to a relation's, a Ba- ronet, with whom he for some time resided. About Christmas, a grand rout, was to be given by the relation of Mr. Farquhar, in consequence of his return. " '"""" * u ' " own resources, contrived to support, themselves without parochial assistance, and seemed to be as comfortable now as before. This information the Doctor seemed to prize; and he related the extra- ordinary fact, that in Manchester ( according to the information he had received there), before the Act empowering the removal of the Irish passed, more than one- third of the paupers in that town were Irish ; that the law having been acted upon, they ceased to apply far relief, but did not remove from the town, and yet that they were now in as much apparent comfort as when they received so much of the town's money. Being requested by Mr. Dobson to state the object which he had ill view in making his inquiries, Dr. Chalmers stated, that his ob- ject was to obtain as much accurate information as possible con- cerning the state ofthe poor in England, with a view to discover whether English pauperism might be reduced ill tho same manner as Scotch pauperism. He stated that he had already published on this subject, and had now arrived at that point in his works, when accurate information concerning the English poor became neces- sary to him. He had been speculating a good deal on the subject of pauperism, and had compared its state in those parts of Scot- land where the English system had been introduced, with its state in the parts which adhered to the old Scotch mode. He professed himself not yet sufficiently acquainted with the facts of English parish affaire'to give an opinion oil the subject. But he mentioned the plan he had pursued with the parish of St. John's, Glasgow, where the poor had been supported from two sources,— voluntary contributions at the church doors, and an assessment upon the in- habitants. He told the magistrates, that if they would grant him the use ofthe voluntary contributions, he would not send another new case of pauperism to them. This arrangement was made ; the assessment was applied to the old cases only, and diminished as the old paupers died off. He divided the parish into a number of small districts, and appointed his deacons to be guardians of the poor; they examined minutely into every case which came before them, and applied relief, where necessary, with economy and dis- cretion. By this means a very large diminution, beyond his most sanguine calculations, had been effected in the amount of relief distributed, and the pauperism of the parish was now upheld by voluntary contributions. Dr. Chalmers declared, that he should be sorry if Parliament were to pass such an Act, as would be followed up by an imme- diate movement throughout the country, or would cause any vio- lent fermentation : his present idea was, that it would be advisa- ble to pass an Act, allowing any parish to alter its mode of giving relief, and to adopt the Scotch system, thus making experiments of its efficacy ; and he thought it would be better that the trial should be first made by the small agricultural parishes, and the amelioration ofthe present system be gradual. He mentioned the striking fact, that in one of the suburbs of Glasgow, the Gorbals, situated on the other side ofthe river, where the system of com- pulsory relief had not been adopted, 350/ was found sufficient to maintain the poor of a population of 22,000. He could only ac- count for this by supposing, that when the poor ceased to have any dependence on a public fund for their support, they found resources within themselves, that their habits became more economical and prudential, that they saved something in youth and middle life as competency for old age, and that indigent parents were sometimes supported by their children. He saw nothing in English human nature materially different from Scotch human nature ; and, tho' he was not yet sufficiently well informed to hazard a decisive opi- dion, he had hopes that the system of pauperism ill England ad- mitted of effective reform— Leeds Mercury. EXTRAORDINARY PRODUCE OF APPLES, AND WELL SOLD Mr. Hammersley, of Hanley, lately purchasing apples at Betley, in this county, the owner proposed to'liim to take the produce of one of his trees, at a halfpenny for the first measure, and doubling the amount upon each measure to the last, whatever the quantity might be; on a little consideration, Mr. Hammer- sley cheerfully complied, congratulating himself upon what he thought an advantageous bargain— The produce of the tree was forty measures, and to the great surprise of the purchaser, a de- mand was made upon him f'or 2,290,649,224/. 10s. Staf- ford Paper. SINGULAR DISCOVERY.— The Police of Amsterdam have discovered a gang of thieves in a very singular manner. A stranger brought a piece of fur to a furrier to make 12 caps of if, all of the same shape. The latter contrived to make 13 caps in- stead of 12, and kept the 13th for himself. Some days afterwards lie was standing with this cap on at a stall, looking attentively at the goods, and, as was his custom, holding his hands behind him, when he felt something put in his hand, and on looking found a gold watch, with chain and seals. He looked round ill vain for ihe person who had thus surprised him, but he could see no one. He thought it his duty to inform the Police, and as a reward for his zeal, was for the present, put under arrest. It is said that there was. a society of 12 robbers, who recognised each other by these caps, and without doubt this is the reason why the honest furrier was mistaken for a member of the band. MARINE CURIOSITY.— A very singular fish is at this time in pickle on board the Mary Frances, Greenland ship, now I in the Old Dock, at Hull. Mr. Wilkinson, the captain, says it | was caught to the north of Shetland by some of his men sent out in a boat, who saw it floundering on the surface of the water, and dragged it on board by one of its tail tins. It6 formation is ex- ceedingly clumsy, and its movements must have been very slow. On a first view of the head, we fancied we saw a strong resem- blance to the large wrinkled face of a fat old man, and the non- sense about mermaids immediately recurred to our recollection. But a whole view of the animal soon dissipated all our reveries, and left us to wonder at the variety of the productions of nature. Its shape is nearly oval, beingfrom thehead to the tail rather more than three feet, aiid in breadth two. The skill is of a deep grey, and all over as rough as a file moderately worn ; so rough, that when the sailor laid hold of the tail fin to pull it out ofthe water, his hold was as firm as if he had been grasping a piece of strong sand paper. Capt. Wilkinson says, that when first taken, its eyes were quite prominent, and exactly resembling human eyes. It is furnished with a pair of ears, with two small fins beneath them, and two large tail fins, between which is a short fleshy tail. It is described as the Sun Fish of Dr. Shaw, and it probably is one of that singular species; but it seems odd, as Capt. Wilkinson as- sures us is the fact, that if it be, the oldest fisherman in Shetland never tihould have seen any thing like it before. CAUTION TO TENANTS AND FARMER.— John Jones, of Kencoed ; Richard Davies, of Blaenpibwr- fach ; Geo. Davies, of Cwmfrood ; David Richard, of Mynyddcover; and John White, of Danygraig; all of the parish of Landefeilog, Carmarthenshire, were on Saturday convicted by John Jones and J. Saunders, Esqrs. in various sums, amounting to double the value of the goods, and in the costs of the conviction, for aiding and assisting Theophilus Richards, of Cwm, in the same parish, in fraudulently carrying off and concealing his effects, to avoid a distress for arrears of rent, due to his landlord, John Dunn, Esq. COACH ROBBERY.— It is with much concern we have to notice another instance of a bankers' parcel having been stolen from a coach, containing three remittances from Bristol banking- houses to their correspondents in Bath ; and, from the manner m which the robbery was effected, we are induced to believe that ti( e thief must be connected with a set of men who live by this species of plunder. It appears the delinquent was taken up near Temple Gate, in Bristol, and that two ladies of most respectable connec- tions, one living between Bristol and Bath, and the other at Bath, were also in the coach. Shortly after the former lady left the coach, the man commenced a search in it, for the purpose, as he stated, of seeing " if something was in the seat for him, which he expected to be there," arid after examining certain parcels, he said, " It is all right." On the coach reaching the bridge at the en- trance into Bath, he requested the lady " to allow him to take his parcel out of the seat on which the lady was sitting ;" which he did, putting it in a green silk handkerchief, and holding the same in his hand. Before the coach reached its regular place of desti- nation, he stopped it, and got out, requesting the coachman " to keep a place for him, as he intended to return to Bristol in the even- ing by the same conveyance." The fellow then walked deliberately off with the parcel in his hand, enveloped in the handkerchief, and was seen to turn a corner, and although the coachman discovered therobbery within five minutes after the scoundrel had left the coach, and every possiblesearch was made, yetwe ate sorryto say he effect ed his escape The following is a description of the thief: he is about 5 feet 6 inches high, 35 years of age, dark hair, swarthy com- plexion, shrewd and " sharp- looking, tile upper lip rather project- ing ; wore a black cOat, dark waistcoat, blue pantaloons, with Wellington boots; carried a green silk handkerchief, and had a blue umbrella, the inside slide of which was embossed. One evening, a week previous, Mr. Farquhar, received a hint from his relation that his clothes were not of the newest fashion, and recommended a Bond- street tailor to him. Mr. Farquhar asked him if that really was his opinion ; the answer was given in ft way with which Mr. Farquhar did not feel pleased; he went to his bed- room, packed up his trunk, re- quested the servant to call a coach, in which he set out, and hat never associated with his titled relations since.] He then settled in Upper Baker- street: an old woman was his sole attendant; and his a'psrtment, to which a brush or broom was never applied, was kept sacred from her care. Books and papers were strewed on the floor; the spot where the book was concluded, there it was thrown, and never removed. His neighbours were not all acquainted with his character; and there have been instances of some of them of fering him money as an object of charity, or as a reduced gentle- man. He became partner in the great agency house in the city of Basset, Farquhar, and Co. ar. d also purchased the lata Sir. Whit- bread's share in the brewery. Part of his great wealth has been devoted to the purchase of estates, but the great bulk has been in- vested in stock, and suffered to increase, on tbe principle of com- pound interest. Every half- year he regularly draws his dividends, his mercantile profits, and his rents, and purchases in the funds. In this manner his wealth has accumulated. Mr. Farquhar is deeply read in ancient and modern literature ; his mind is one of extraordinary vigour and originality— his conversation of a. supe- rior order, impressive and animated on every subject. His senti- ments are liberal, and strangely contrasted with his habits. His parsimony may be considered as a disease which he cannot con- trol. His religious opinions are peculiar, and seem to be influ- enced bv an admiration of tha puritv of the lives and moral princi- ples of " the Brahmins. It is said, that he offered to appropriate 100,000/, to found a College in Aberdeen on the most enlarged plan of education, with a reservation on points of religion, to which, however,' the sanction of the Legislature could not be procured, and the plan was dropped. Mr. Farquhar has latterly resided in one of his own houses in Gloucester- place, which he has furnished in a style of modern elegance. He has also set up a handsome chariot, and so far as appearances are concerned, indulges in se- veral luxuries ; but his domestic habits are still the same, mid his table seldom labours with the pressure of heavy dishes. Ho has one nephew, to whom he allows, or did allow, 300/. a year. _ He has but few other claims of family. Those who are not acquainted with Mr. Farquhar, consider him as a miser; but the few with whom he associates recognize a powerful and enterprising mind, a cultivated and discerning taste, and an intellectual refinement, totally opposite to that parsimony, which he seems to have im- posed on himself as a duty, but which habit has made second na- ture. His domestic expenditure, until the last year, has not ex- ceeded 2C0Z. a year, although his possessions, money in the funds, and capital in trade, is said to amount to a million and a half. With the purchase of Fonthill Abbey is, we understand, in- cluded a moiety of the Borough of Hindon, the other moiety is in the possession of Lord Calthorpe. Mr. Beckford's present Mem ber is Mr. Plumer, the West India merchant. The friends of liberty will gain a vote by the accession of Mr. Farquhar to this property, since we understand that gentleman is a staunch Whig. Rumour says there were, at the time of the sale, executions in the Abbey to the amount of 80,000/. The view of the effects took place entirely under the controul of the Sheriff; and the persons taken for the Abbey servants, and whose civil demeanour called for acknowledgment, were no other than Sheriff's officers. The produce ofthe admission tickets probably netted 10,000/. Look- ing at the matter in this view, it cannot but excite painful and me- lancholy reflections on the tenure by which men hold the goods of this life. Those who were acquainted with Mr. Beckford's cir- cumstances, some few years ago, thought him so secured in the enjoyment of a princely income, that he was absolutely beyond the reach of fortune. He at one time was in the actual receipt of 160,000/. a- year 1 It cannot be said of him that he wasted his inheritance at the gaming table. This palace, which he raised on a barren mountain, the greater part of those vast plantations which surround it, the collection of books, and of rare works of art, and the superb furniture, which give such peculiar dignity and splendour to the interior of his residence, speak at once the immensity of his means, and attest the propriety and graceful- ness of their application. To him, who seems really to have devoted his whole nerve to the business of making this Abbey realize the most fascinating visions of a noble imagination, such a frustration of all his hopes, in the evening of his life, must be poignant beyond the common intensity of human feelings. The Abbey was the only enjoyment he had in this world— Since the death of his lady, which occurred upwards of thirty years ago, he has been a perfect hermit. The people speak of him as an excellent landlord, who has thought about the comforts of his tenantry, and in every respect assisted them. During his life he has given constant employment to every species of trade. He has pensioned the poor, and has liberally contributed to every work of charity. Yet he is scarcely known to any of the noblemen or gen- tlemen in his neighbourhood. This is strange, though it has been accounted for in a manner to which it is impossible to advert. All we shall say is, that he who has once seen the Abbey, and observed the delicate purity and consistency of taste which characterise it, would require the most undoubted evidence before he would cre- dit a shadow of the anecdotes which meet you every where respect- ing this unfortunate gentleman. If they be calunmious, as they very probably are, they are the basest that ever degraded the. in- vention of malignity. He is Dow in his 63d autum, prostrate un- der the blast of adversity, and still they have Dot ceased to hunt him. SHOCKING ACCIDENTS.— On Friday evening, as, Mr. John Jesse, jun. solicitor, of Ilminster, was riding home, on a spi- rited mare, from a neighbouring village, it is supposed that the animal who was apt to start, did so on this occasion, as Mr. Jesse, was found dead on the turnpike- road within about half a mile of the town. On Tuesday, T. Sainsbury, keeper to the Marquis'of Aylesbury, on his return home from Great Bedwin, near Marlborough, acci- dentally fell into the Kennet and Avon Canal, and was found drowned the next morning. OXFORD, Oct. 12.— On Monday, the Rev. G. W. Hall, D. D. Master of Pembroke College, having been previously nomi- nated by the Right Hon.

Fitzpatrick. the chief clerk at the Marlborough- street office, has jUst returned from Ire- land, where he has been in attendance before the Spiritual Court of the see of Armagh, with the depositions taken at Marlborough, street in the case of the Bishop of Clogher. The proceedings in the way of evidence are closed, the usual citation's issued, ntid the formal deprivation of Percy Jocelyn is on the eve of taking place. At Hereford County Sessions, the Chairman ( the Rev Mr. Lilly), in his charge to the Grand Jury, introduced the fol- lowing topics : " Gentlemen, an important Act of Parliament has recently been passed, the 3d Geo. IV. c. 71, which gives a power to Magistrates to punish in a summary manner by a fine not ex- ceeding 61. those mischievous and wanton persons who are guilty of improper or cruel treatment to horses or any cattle. This f consider an Act of great utility to the Agricultural part of tho community, whose property is often injured by such acts of wan- ton mischief— I will, Gentlemen, mention one other Act of Par- liament, 3d. Geo. 4, c. 77, which relates to and regulates Public- houses, and Ale- houses. By this Act it is required that after tha 10th Oct. inst. all publicans shall sell ale and other liquors by ths legal standard measure in pewter pots properly stamped'and marked, and in no other. And it also requires, that the true as- size should be kept and observed in selling bread ; and i" ffict » % penalty of 40s. half to be paid to the informer, and half ioth » poor of the parish, for every default. This Act further endea- vours, wisely and humanely, to guard the morals o- the lower or- ders by rendering it highly penal tn permit drunkenness, tipcliiv, or gaming, in any public- house, or any immoral or dissolute con-' duct. These Acts appear to me important to the welfero and in- terests ofthe community ; and therefore I trust. I have not trans- gressed my duty in endeavouring to give publicity to them." WORCESTERSHIRE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. Tho October meeting of this Society was held this day. ' The attend- ance of its members and their friends, was more numerous than at any of tils late meetings, and it was generally observed that the Stock exhibited was of exceeding good quality.

Up- wards of 100,000 sheep were penned : a finer show was never he- fore presented to the purchaser; and although the different de- scriptions of sheep and lambs were in general offered at very low prices, yet many thousands were driven off unsold. One gentle- man obtained 100 guineas for 100 fat lambs, but this was the high- est price heard of m the fair, while many hundreds of excellent lambs were sold between the low prices of 5s. and 11.,. head The general prices may be properly stated as follow: Down ewes' from 9s. to 15*. and 20s.; Down lambs, from 7s. to 15s.; wh- 1 thers, from 20s. to 25s. and 28, t— The fair for hops opened this day ( Saturday). The hops are large in bulk, and generally v « ry fine in quality. The prices for Faruhams were from 71, to 71. 10s x country hops., from 70s. to 5/. 12s. Much business is expected to be transacted on Monday ; and as the quality is so superior it is presumed good prices will be obtained The show of hoi'ses .„ . . , c interest, good horse » still maintain good prices. It is a, fact that a single cart colt years old, was sold at the prici of 100 excellent lambs, which' if not of the best description, were certainly above mediocrity. Hun. ters and roadsters of the first class were numerous, and met a bet- ter sale than was expected, while the inferior order of horses - ili at very low prices. Rising cart colts, of two years old and large tolerably good prices— The Cheese fair is small," and growth, mot t 192 sacks 68 bags flour, 63 doz. sheep skins; in the star, 50 frkns butter, 119 brls oats, 377 brls wheat, 50 sacks 30 ba « s flour ; in the Good Intent, 475 sacks 101 bags flour, 755 brls wheat, 75 brls 1 oats, 11 brb park, HO frkns butter, 10 pipes oil. the prices may be quoted as follow : best Somerset,, 49s. to 4Bs - second, 35s. to 40s. ; coward and half coward, 30s. to 35s,; skim' 18s. to 23s. 1' At Appleshaw Fair, on Tuesday and Wednesday, the show of Dorset and Somerset ewes was mora numerous than last year. The sales were exceedingly dull; and the general prices, from 10s. to 23s. ^ head, being on an average full 10s. lower than last year notwithstanding many of the ewes were this year iu better condil tion than last. Shrewsbury October Fair was the most gloomy ever witnessed. There was a large supply of fat sheep, but few were sold at even 3d. to 3id. ^ lb.; of stores there was a small supply, and these obtained the prices of last fair. Prime fat cows obtained from id. to i\ d. and few were prcsentfor sale; but there was a very numer- ous supply of half- fat and useful cows and bullocks, which were wholly unsaleable ; useful four- year- old bullocks were sold from 8L to 8/. 8s. Pigs were numerous, or rather innumerable, and the sale dull at 2d. to 2\ d. lb. Common skim cheese was hardly- looked at on Wednesday ; but next morning many lots were sold at from 20s. to 30s. I? 1 cwt. good cheese sold freely ; middling dai- ries 35s. to 4", s. best dairies 45s. to 55s. The supply of butter did not exceed the demand, and sold quickly at SJrf. to 8Jrf. and some 9d. lb.; Bacon - U. to The buyers were numerous and re- spectable, and the supply answered their expectations. At Derby Cheese Fair, held on Saturday, the demand was muc'- greater than expected, and prices considerably higher Prime plain dairies averaged 4Ss. second quality 40s. to 4 is. ; coloured 45s. to 50s. and Vs. to 2s. ^ cwt. more money was given for par- ticular dairies. The buyers were more numerous than remem- bered lately. On Thursday, Chester Michaelmas Fair commenced. Of horses, there was an unusually numerous shew, a small portion of which was of prime quality ; ofthe best sort few sold at tolerable prices and the inferior ones were a mere drug. We never remember to have seen so large a shew of horned cattle; and the sale was slack at very low prices. Pigs were not so plentiful as for several fairs back ; the prices somewhat better; say from 2ji. to 3\ tl ^ lb. There was a good supply of Irish linen, and no material altera- tion In the prices. At the Falkirk Tryst, Scotland, there was an unusually large supply of sheep— the number supposed to be about fij, 000. As usual, the market began with sheep, and wet, windy, and unfa- vourable as the weather was, the demand exceeded the expecta- tions of buyers and sellers. Ewes brought from 5s. to 8s. each and wedders sold from 7s. to 14s. 3if.; some lots from the vicinity of Ben Nevis brought 14s. 3d, a- head ; a few years ago they would haye sold at 30s. a- head. The greater part of the sheep were sold off on Monday. The black cattle- markeif began on Tuesday, and fully the usual number of buyers came forward. There were in the whole upwards of 25,000 head of cattle in the market, which was the largest number that ever appeared at any Tryst. West Highland heifers were chiefly in request, and went off in lots aa usual. One lot of 60, best three- years old, brought C, l. 15s.; an- other lot of 60 brought 6/. 10s.; and another lot of 40 brought , U ; the rest sold lower according to their quality. West Highland heifers sold readily at a reduction of about 7J cent, from last Tryst's prices. Upon the whole, there is a reduction of 20 ceU|. upon the live cattle since the Tryst held this time last year, and a considerable number left the ground unsold. Fat cattle were very scarce, and persons who intended to purchase were disappointed, — Glasgow Courier. BANKRUPTS required to SURRENDER. WM.
