INDIGO.— The sale of indigo at the East India House, closed on Tuesday. It was attended with a briskness and an advance in price quite unex- pected. The greatest portion of the sale was purchased for exportation, especially for tbe Netherlands, Germany, and France, where we understand the manufactories are in so flourishing | a condition, that they must very soon rival the ' best efforts of this country even in cheap goods, j The beautiful and durable tint on the fine blue ! cloth manufactured either in Belgium or France, ! we have never been able to equal, and at this sale I the foreign orders for fine indigo were so numerous, 1 and the prices so high, that our brokers were afraid to purchase for home consumption, or even to extensive Garden walled round, and planted with , 7 spectable Venders of Medicines in most Country choice Fruit Trees, with Flower Garden adjoining I compete with the foreign commissions.

The exposition of the financial circumstances i of this kingdom by the Finance Minister Egoa, pub- j lished in the Spanish Papers lately received, com- | mences with a reluctant confession of the failure of j all the sources of revenue, and makes a tacit acknow- | ledgment of the inadequacy, or indisposition of the : Custom Officers to maintain the exclusive system, by which it was absurdly hoped to raise the revenue, ; and encourage the manufacturers of the Peninsula at the expense of foreign nations ; more particularly of Great Britain. 4k The contraband system," says the Report, 41 pursued to an extent of which even the most calamitous times afford 110 example, di- | minishesthe receipts of the Excise, and almost anni- hilates those of the Customs-,— and the insurrection . in the Provinces impedes the levying of contributions, and absorbs the prod nee of the taxes, by the ex i pense of the military force employed against the rebels.'" The result of these financial defalcations has been a succession of rapidly increasing defici- encies in the three years that have elapsed since the I commencement of the Revolution. In the first year the deficiency was 187,442,774 reals I n I lie second 322,06< >, 955 In the third 472,815,753 j The estimated expenses for the permanent estab- ; lishment of the current year are 432,708,311 reals, or about nine millions sterling; and the revenue for the quarter, ending August 31, produced 78,020,326 reals, or about £ 1,625,423 sterling, or in round num- I should the report of the last year's crop being so limited, prove true, we fear we shall be compelled | to go into the market upon terms so disadvan- tageous as nearly to amount to double the present price, which was the case a few years back. There 1 hers 6 millions and a half a year-, leaving a deficiency is no remedy for this impending evil, unless our ! upon the regular establishment of two millions and a bucks and bloods of fashion substitute some other colour for blue cloth. Extract of a letter dated Montevideo, June 28 : — 44 Business at Buenos Ayres is extremely dull, the consumption being chiefly confined to a limited district; the supplies of goods to the half. But the Mintstcr considers, that the actual demands of the year must amount to 784,896,959 reals, 44 in order that all the engagements for the public service, both past and present, may be fulfilled with that regularity which is proper and indis- pensable." The account of revenue and expenditure will then stand thus, supposing the quarter quoted to be a fair criterion of the year:— Pacific, going now direct round Cape Horn. The ! Expenditure 784,896,959 reals 16.352,019 sterling. : : i - 1 Hevenue - 312,081,304 reals 6,501,732 sterling. wants of the interior provinces are besides very confined, chiefly owing to the backward slate of ( the inhabitants, distance, and the absence of returns with which to pay. This must be the case for some time, and till the interior provinces have laid aside their jealousy against the capital, and have felt the advantages of that system of reform arid improvement, now set on foot with the greatest success. At the present moment little is indeed said of business there. Every body is alive to the news from the United States, respecting the acknowledgment of independence. Here we are all confusion, aud in a most uncertain state, not knowing to whom the Eastern Bank will belong in the course of next year." We learn by a gentleman from Hackensack, New Jersey, that there has been a dreadful hail- storm at that place. The; hail upon an average was as large as a walnut, and it is calculated that 10,000 panes of glass were broken ip the neigh- bourhood. The extent of this hail storm was about four miles wide, and in its course destroyed the grain, & c. The same storm was experienced at the Brothers, just before Hell Gate, but the hail was only the size of a pigeon's egg.

His Efforts proving ineffectual, 1 applied lo another of the Shrewsbury Faculty, nud subsequently lo four others, all of whom were repuled for tbeir Powers in the Healing Art' but rather llinn mv Wound being cured, it relapsed inlo a most frightful Ulceration, rendered still more afflictive and distressing by ihe apparent | Necessity of my Leg being taken off. Having thus ; obtained'all the Advice that Money could purchase, and also taken a most incredible Quantity of Physic, from which I did not derive llie smallest Portion of Benefit, 1 was about to commit myself to the Hands ofthe Surgeon, when, fortunately, 1 was induced to | enquire afler Dr. Smith's I'loughman's Drops, and - before I bad taken the Half of oue small Bottle, the j Wound began to assume ihe most healthy Appear- I a nre. 1 continued lo lake the Drops, to llie Amount j of five small Botlles, and my Leg gradually returned I to its wonted State of Soundness, and bus continued i so lo Ihc present Time, It would be au ungrateful ; Ferliu" on iny Part were 1 to withhold iny heartfelt j Testimony to the valuable Properties which these | Drops contain, and I. am therefore called upon to avow that I consider this one ofthe finest Cures that ever came within my Knowledge, aud shall be glad at any Time lo give' my personal Attestation to the MARY ROGERS.

There has been a considerable falling ofF in the take of herrings this year. According to the statements of experienced fish outers, tbere have not been quite third* of the usual quantity taken 6a the Caithness coast this season; and owing, it is supposed, to tbe prevalence of strong easterly winds wben the fish were spawning. The fishing season has entirely failed at Dunbar anil the opposite coast. The fishers have also met with little success in the West Highlands, In con. sequence herrings have lately risen from 30s. to 33s, and 34s. and good west country herrings are selling readily at 35s. and 36s. a barrel wholesale. The Stirling Journal says— 44 We are con- cerned to state, on information that leaves no doubt as to the fact, that the branch of the Com- mercial Bank at Dunkeld, was forcibly entered into on the morning of Sunday last ( the 13th inst.) and notes to the amount of £ 1800, besides other property in o ils, carried off." A Sunday paper announces the death of Mr. Nugent Bell, who had acquired same celebrity by his exertions in the case of the Huntingdon Peerage. An action to recover a sum of money advanced to him for the investigation ofa claim to an estate was tried on Friday, and a verdict passed against him: on Friday evening he died. He was 39 years of age, and we believe a law student. The following most awful instance of the un- certainty of human life occured at the house of Abraham Davis, a Jew dealer in Marine Stores, 97, Old Gravel lane, Ratcliff- highway :— On Sunday night Mr?. Davis complained of being unwell, and asked her husband for something she fancied. He said she was always longing for something, and wished she was stiff iu her grave. He no sooner repeated the words than he was seized with a shivering—- he became speechless, and was a corpse before twelve, o'clock, having been previously in perfect health. Mrs. Davis was so shocked at the circumstance that she took to her bed, and was a corpse in less than six hours aftersvards. A MISER.— An Inquest was held last week at the Coach and Morses, Northumberland- alley, Fenchurch- street, London, on the body of Moses Aaron, found dead. The Jury went to view the body of the deceased, which was found lying on an old sack in a lower room in the, above alley, covered by a single blanket and an old great coat. In one corner was a sink and cistern. Ihe rest of the furniture comprized a crazy table, a broken plate, two lame chairs, a spoutless tea pot, and a warming pot. The floor was caked with dirt, and it was represented not to have been swept for 17 years. J. Schultze, a lodger in the house, said, he coil- versed with the deceased on Saturday night, who Deficiency 472,815,655 reals 9,850,287 sterling. This deficiency of nearly ten millions sterling upon the year can be made up ouly by a loan, and there is no reason to suppose, that in the present state and temper of Europe, much facility will be afforded to the Spanish Liberals to borrow ou the Continent, while the discovery that of the late loan of 27,610,00( 1, contracted for by Messrs. Hubbard and Ardouin, 1,060,000 only were payable in Paris, thc remainder being payable in London, by persons who looked to the French market for instruction as to the value of their security ; which may put the capitalists of England on their guard against again embarking- iu similar speculations. Perhaps few less candid, or more crafty, transactions, have occurred than this of the French contractors. They contracted with the Spanish Government for 27 millions of reals, and retained in their hands a twenty- seventh part, about £ 40,000 sterling, just enough to enable them to com- mand, or rather to create, au artificial market at Paris. They sent the remaining 26 parts into the English money market, to be sold at prices regulated by the management of the pittance in their hands at Paris. This shift will, however, scarcely serve for repetition, and few without delusion will be disposed to lend their money upon the hope of repayment— upon the desperate hope of repayment from the present Government of Spain. A little patience, on the part of the Holy Alliance, will bring Spain lo a rational system of Government, or leave her in a condition to be by no means feared or envied. Whatever may* be tiie difficulties in the way of raising supplies, however, we learn from anoiher document of equal interest and authority wiih the rest, quite enough to acquit the Finance Minister of the folly of wantonly encountering the task ; and abundantly sufficient to shew that the very existence Mecjoinenzn." In August 4t the number of the in- surgents continued to increase"— lk stone bold opera- lions were observed among them," indicating 41 a combined plan;" and some distinguished Spaniards, 44 holding considerable posts iu the country," put themselves 44 at the head" of the Royalist* armies, and44 formed part of the Regency." In the fifth Military District, a Royalist Junta has been formed at I rati, which 44 has beeu fortified with artillery, and forms a base for the operations" of the troops commanded by Ques'ada. In the fifth Military District, 44 there appeared iu the month of Juiy, symptoms of a general insur- rection, the consequence of the operations iu Navarre and Catalonia, the loss of Seo de fJrge., the taking of Marella, and the affair cf Siguenza"'( in Old Castile.) 44 But the most important occurrence of that month was the loss of Mequinenza" ( in the kingdom of Arragon). 44 In the month of August, the reeonquest of ' Mequinenza was seriously contemplated ( by t tie Republicans), but the march of the Trapp'sr from Catalonia to Navarre, and his return with Qnesada to Cataionia, required the continued attention of all the troops in the district." " In the province of Hnesca, the insurgents have fortified a point. They have obtained several triumphs in this quarter, u hich have lately been augmented by the defeat of part of the column ofTabuenca " In the 7th Military District, 41 the insurrection has assumed so decided and formidable an aspect thnt the Government has determined to. establish in it an army of operation." 44 Almost all the small and in- land towns have joined the insurrection " 44 The present misery of Cataionia, occasioned by the fever at Barcelona, and above all by the loss of trade with America, has had an influence in producing discon- tent." 4' In July the insurrection continued its pro* press." 44 The taking of Seo de Urgel was sensibly felt, since it enabled the Insurgents to maintain a tranquil position in the midst of the plain of Catalonia ;" and 44 Ihey assumed a form of adminis- tration and government." 4kIn August the insur- rection acquired new strength " 4i In September the Insurgents received fresh encouragement." " In some other provinces of the Peninsula, there have beeu insurrections more or less formidable." Sucb is the state of the insurrection as described by a minister, whose obvious policy is to soften down its terrors. Tlie measures proposed, under the fourth head of the Report, are an increase ofthe regular army to 100,000 effective men, and an anticipation of the regul ar enrolment of the miiiiia ; measures which satisfactorily enough explain the exorbitant requi- sition ofthe Finance Minis er. We have already adverted to the impression of the dreary state of Spain likely to be produced, by a perusal of these documents; but there is another, and an extremely important piece of instruction, to be drawn from their omissions; we allude to the obstinate silence on the. subject of South America,' observed from the Commencement of the KingV speech to the conclusion of the War Minister's re- port. The name of America, indeed, occurs once, and only once; but it. is when the effect of its loss to Spain is traced in the misery of the Eastern pro- vinces; surely this is proof enough that even iti Spain the recovery of the revolted colonies is no longer to he treated of; and it is a severe rebuke to those Governments which have refused to recognize the independence of the Columbians, in order to flatter the capricious resentment of the Spaniards, against a people, towards whom they can have no other feeling; and over whom they have long censed to have any power, or any right to power. Dot gel! y, WILLIAMS k SON Holy head,.. JoNES, — RICHARDS. of the present system in Spain depends upon the acquisition of this money. We allude to the report of the War Minister, Lopez Banos, upon the Military State of Spain. This report is drawn up with a clearness and precision that leave nothing for con- jecture, aud with a manifest candour not often to be found iu such instruments, and which demands for all its assertions the most implicit credit. The first emotion excited by a perusal of the report is, un- doubtedly, a feeling- of surprise and resentment at the monstrous delusions that havebeen imposed upon the people of Europe, with respect to the state of Spain, by the parly in France and England which affects to patronise the Spanish revolution. A better aud more permanent feeling succeeds in the deep regret with which we must regard the misery and destruction of a gallant and generous people, within a few years our faithful— almost our only, Ally, and now trodden in the dust by the unnatural quarrels excited by their enemies, exposed to all the Honors of civil war, while the game for their bondage is played out with their blood, between a faithless effeminate Tyrant, and a dirty French Jacobin De- mocracy. Never was there exhibited a more dreary or de- sperate picture of a nation than that presented iu Lopez Banos's report It is not, that the Minister manifests any doubt of the final success of the party to which he is attached, such an acknowledgment would at least promise peace, however we might lament the triumph of tyranny: the state described does not hold out even this consolation. The con- tending parties are too equally balanced to afford any hope of decisi ve success on either side : they are too rancorously hostile to admit the least expectation of an accommodation-. they are too equally inimical to public happiness, and too equally worthless to allow of the struggle being divided by the inclination of the virtuous and truly patriotic part of the nation to one side or the other; while the rival factions seem unfortunately too powerful to permit the good to arise from their inactivity, and extinguish both — the only happy and honourable termination we can imagine for the afflictions of the Peninsula.

That and all the others io the place were his property.— It appeared that he lived alone, his wife having been dead 50 years. The witness added, that upwards of £ 40 were found in his pocket, also a gold snuff box, a valuable ring, and in a hole in the wail, his watch, a will, and other documents. Dr. Constadt, Physician, in Bevis Marks, said, he examined thtj body, ou which there were no marks of violence. The deceased was a very penurious man, and. did not allow himself sufficient sustenance, which neces- sarily impaired his health. He was subject to Cholera Morbus, and often mingled among the poor at his habitation to receive advice, which he gave gratis. Mr. Levi, oue of the executors, said the deceased had a large sum in the funds, in addition to his landed property. He hud three sons whom he had cut off with a shilling, and left his property to Charitable Institutions'!!! The Jury then returned a verdict of— Natural Death. A few evenings since some villains, taking advantage of a servant carelessly leaving the dour open, at a Gentleman's house in Euston, place, l^ ew- road, Middlesex, entered the same, and stole a silver tea- pot, a ditto sugar- dish, seven table and six dessert spoons, a tea- spoon, 12 silver forks, and two waiters, about a foot each in diameter. The material of the artillery and engineers is not in a more Satisfactory stale. The magazines destroyed, during the war of independence, have not beeu re- placed. The fortresses are dismantled, and the troops are frequently iii want of ammunition. The want of money and the increase of expenses have prevented the military establishment making that progress to a system of order and economy which was the purpose of its institution.'" The neighbouring states, to whose respective military attitudes allusion is made, are England ( as occupying Gibraltar), Morocco, Portugal, France. No danger is apprehended from either of the two first; military aid is expected'- from Portugal; but an undisguised avowal is made of a suspicion of the ill designs of France ; all, the topics of offence arc carefully recapitulated ; the sanatory Cordon, the asylum arid pecuniary aid afforded to ttie Royalist insurgents, and the collection of provisions and mili- tary stores; and the article relating to France con eludes with an observation 44 that Spain, prudently considering the possible views of the Holv Alliance, must not abandon her fate to tbe will of foreigners." The insurrection commenced in Catalonia and Navarre about the middle of last April." 44 In May the forces of the insurgents iuvreased." 44 In June the insurrections became extraordinarily enlarged." Arragon began to be agitated ; and Catalonia " ex- perienced the sensible loss of ihe Seo de tJrgel wilh all its fortresses " In July the attempt of the Royal Guards gave astonishing animation to the Royalists. 44 They gained new spirit," 44 and took the Castle of On Monday, after repeated procrastinations, ~ arising out of the particular character of his prosecutors ( 44 the Constitutional Association"), Thomas Dolby was convicted of publishing a seditious libel, in thc Court ot King's Bench. Oil the same day, and in the same Court, IV. Clarke tvas convicted of publishing a blasphemous libel, at Ihc prosecution of " thc Society for llie Sup- pression uf Vice " These convictions were ob- tained against libels of unequivocal wickedness, and il affords a subject of sincere congratulation, that two delinquents of so high a degree of guilt have been brought to justice. Samuel Waddington, of Radical notoriety, was on Wednesday found guilty of publishing a blasphemous libel.— The trial took place before tiie Lord Chief Justice; and the prosecution was coil- ducted by the Attorney General. An attack has at length been made by the law of thc land upon the London gambling houses: it has commenced in Iwo quarters— in both with success ; and it is hoped may be followed up anil continued without intermission, until these nests of wickedness shall have been thoroughly cleaned out. O ne prosecution was brought against two persons named Aldridge and Fielder, for keeping that notorious gaming table, No. 9, Bennett- street, St. James's. The trial vvas held before the Lord Chief Justice, on Saturday; the prosecutor and principal witness was a young gentleman whom the defend- ants bad completely ruined. They were both found guilty. The next case involved a number of culprits, and was determined before the Ma- gistrates of Bow - street, on the same day, who sentenced four of the principal to one month's discipline ( as rogues and vagabonds) on the tread- mill in the House ot Correction. It is said that a dozen of actions and indictments are in preparation against this race of miscreants, to be. tried at the next sittings after term. Active measures of a further nature are likewise taking for the security of the ignorant and unwary. Late on Monday night uo less than 14 persons, taken out of a gaming house, No. 33, Pall- mall, at half past three in the afternoon, were biought up for examination at B i> w Street Office, when De . lustus de Astey, an Officer of the G.- rnnn Legion, stated that Jackson, oue of thc defendants, vvas proprietor of the house; lie kept it for two French Gentlemen, one of whom was present; he had seen him sit al Ihe table during the play at roulette, he received the money and kept tiic bank. Smith, Ihe Officer, slated he went wilh others, wilh a warrant, entered by a ladder nt thc first floor w indow, and proceeded through that room to the back room on the second floor; but j- ist before he arrived at the door a Gentleman came out with a box in his hand, and ran up stairs ( the third pair) ; he entered the back room second pair, and found a box, containing seven d izen and one counters, ami seven sovereigns and a half; he also found sccreted in a cupboard two of the prisoners. Iluthven, Baker, Nicholls, and Morris ( Officers) produced a roulette tabli', some curious cards, and other implements of gaming, which they found on the premises, and named several of thc prisoners as being present. Mr. H inner commented ou the hardship of convicting a boJv of men, who, since their apprehension, had not had an opportunity 0f procuring proper assistance; aud the Magistrate agreed to defer the further examination, but said the piisoncrs must remain in custody.

This glorious triumph of the ; Christian cause has been for some time matter of certainly ; but iis extent could not be known before all the particulars were ascertained: it now appears, that Ihe total loss to the Turks has not fallen short ot 50,000 men, with the whole collected pecuniary resources of the Empire, and all the appointments of the army. The gratification which the knowledge of this fact must naturally create, suffers however a severe abatement from the horrid details of the unprovoked massacre of the Cypriotes, 25,000 of whom have fallen under tls- e ferocity of their brutal tyrants, without the Slightest pretext from tumult or disaffection. Throughout an extensive district, all the aged, and all the infants under four years' old, were put to death without inquiry; and some of the adults only were spared, hut they were sent into slavery ; *— llie work of extermination was thus rendered complete! The effect of this portentous atrocity cannot but he favourable to the Christian cause. Men who remember Cyprus and Scio, and look upon their infants, caonot lay down their arms but with their lives. Lord Straugford, in a recent note to the Sublime Porte, states tbat in the late massacres by the Turks, 44 no distinction was made between the guilty and innocent among the Greeks by an exasperated populace;" he tells us that many of the Greeks, of whom j4 timidity was the only crime, liave taken refuge in foreign countries," where they remain 44 the victims of a very natural sus- picion." Ilis Lordship's object iu writing this letter is to obtain the recal of the Greek mer- chants exiled by the late barbarous persecutions of their tyrants. With these, merchants the whole ofthe Levant trade has departed, and the British merchants, engaged in the commerce of that part of the world, begin to feel severely, not only the suspension of trade, but the postponement of the debts due to them by the Greeks-— the only traders in the anomalous Ottoman Empire. Hamburgh papers of the 17th' state that the Turks have been defeated by the Persians near 5£ rzerum, and that a sccond earthquake has de- solated Antioch and two other cities on the coast of Syria. T he French papers of Wednesday have reached town. They contain accounts of military move- ments, but not of any battles in the north of Spain, in which the influence of ihc Constitutional Army is represented to be predominant. The intelligence from Madrid comes down to the llth instant. On the 10th a Deputation of the Extraordinary Cortes presented an Address to the King in reply to the Koyal Speech, in which they assured his Majesty, 44 that they deplored with him the ravages occasioned hy the civil war litndlcd in various provinces; and certain of the enthusiasm with which the patriotism of the Spanish people would face the present wants, they would vote the proposed augmentation of the army, and the arming and improved organization of the active militia." In another part of their Address the Cortes promise to assist the King, 44 in causing the Spanish name to be respected by all the Powers, aud in extending amicable relations with all the States with whom such relations were becoming, aud especially with those possessed of free institutions, and of interests equal to those of Spain." The Flanders Mail, which arrived on Thursday, has brought a Copy of the Speech, at the opening of the States General, hy the King of the Nether- lands'. With one exception, and this a qualified *> ne, it is of a gratulatory character. Profound peace at home and abroad; progressive pro- sperity inthe interior of the kingdom ; the thriving state oflhe Colonies; and an immediate reduction of the public expenditure— are the principal topics of congratulation. The Agricultural Interests, however, suffer from depression of prices; and this apppars to be a general evil, from which no country is exempt. The LVike of Wellington, we regret to say, still continues rather in a delicate state of health, though il is to be hoped that a change of air may be attended with favourable effects. The most marked attention has been paid lo our distinguish- ed countryman since his arrival at Vienna, and the inhabitants generally have manifested an earnest solicitude about him. Ail the first official per sonages in the city, both civil and military, have waited upon him with respectful etiquette; and fhe Emperor himself, before leaving the capital, gave directions that nothing should be wanting, which could mark the high estimation in which his Imperial Majesty holds the Hero of Waterloo.

An express has just arrived with accounts of a fall in the French Funds, and in other public securities at Paris. The English Funds have also declined— Consols from 83 to 82|. We regret to learn from the Irish Papers received this morning, that the system of outrage slill continues in the Counties of Cork, Limerick, Carlow, VVestmeath, and Lei trim'. Lord Howard de VValden is appointed Precis Writer, in the room of Lord Marcus Hill : aud Lord George Bentinck ( who was to have gone with Mr. Canning to India), Private Secretary, iu the room of Mr. Seymour.-- These two offices, as well as oue of lhe Under Secretaryships of Slate, invariably change wilh a new Secretary of Slate. The Uuder Secretary- ship, vacant by I. ord Clanwilliam's retirement, we have reason to believe, is not yet filled up. [ From our Private Correspondent.'] We have received an express from Verona, which left that city on the 1.9th inst. The deliberations of Congress were not to commence till the 23d ; of them therefore nothing can be known ; but. we have been favoured with a copy of a most important Note, prepared at Vienna, by Count Nesselrode, and addressed to the four principal Sovereigns, which seems likely to renew the late agitation which existed on the relation between Russia and Turkey. In this Note it is demanded, on the part of the Emperor of Russia. First— That the Divan shall be required either to send a Plenipotentiary to the Congress, or that it shall prove incontestibly, by a series of acts, its firm resolution of executing the announced dispo- sition in favour ofthe Greeks. Second— That the Divan shall be called upon to announce officially to the Russian Government the nomination of the Hospodars, and the evacuation of the Principalities by the Turkish troops. Third— That the navigation of the Black Sea, shall be free not only to the Russian, but to every other flag. The allegation that the Russians afforded pro- teetiou to the Greeks being wholly unfounded, this Note will form one of the first subjects of discussion brought before Congress. (£ § ? » An interview has taken place at Verona between the Duke of Wellington and the Spanish Minister to the Congress, in which tl: » latter re- ceived positive assurances from the Noble Duke, that both England and Franee were determined to oppose all interference with the affairs of Spain, unless the King were put to death, or an attempt made to spread the principles of the Spanish Con- stitution into other countries. ' Both the English and Foreign Slock markets were a good deal agitated this morning, in conse- quence of the arrival of expresses from France and Verona, which gave rise to various rumours. The intelligence from Verona we have given above One ofthe rumours in circulation is, that . the King of France was much indisposed. Consols for the account fell j} percent..— Spanish, Neapolitan, and Peruvian securities have been . most a&' ectcd by the operations of to- day. A SERMON will be preached at ST.

He was also High Steward and Senior Alderman of the Corporation of Oswestry. An incorruptible Integrity; a Benevolence of Mind truly Christian, which displayed itself in all sorts of kind and charitable offices; and an Urbanity of Manners peculiar to himself, distinguished this amiable and good Man, rivetted the Affection of his Friends, and endeared him to all ranks of people in an extensive circle of the surrounding country. To the whole Vicinity of his Residence tiie Loss is great, and irretrievable: it causes a chasm in Society, which will not soon be filled up. He was in the 70th year of his age. On Friday morning, at Longton Hall, Stafford- shire, Sir John Edensor Heuthcote, Knight; He enjoyed his usual health until after breakfast on Thursday morning, when he was seized with apo- plexy, and so violent was the attack that he sur- vived but a few hours. The deceased was an active and useful member of the community— a constitutional and loyal subject— affable and cour- teous in his manners,*— and his loss will be publicly deplored in the neighbourhood, as well as sincerely regretted by his relatives and a numerous circle of friends.

Election for COUNTY ELECTION.— Tlie vacancy which has occurred in the representation of this comrfy in Parliament by the decease of our late highly and deservedly respected representative, Sir John Kynaston Powell, Bait, whose death is recorded in this week's obituary, has set many electioneering: spirits quite afloat, and all seem anxious to know who is to be bis successor, and whether there is any probability of a contest? some anxious to record their names 011 a poll for a County Election, and others equally anxious to enjoy the satisfaction of witnessing that which has not taken place within a century, the last contested election being in 1993. — At present one candidate only has declared him- self— William Lloyd, Esq. of Aston, whoseaddresj appears in this day's Journal ; but, rumours are ou the wing- as toother gentlemen, and we have heard, within the last two days, no less than eight named as aspiring to the honour ; but 011 what foundation these rumours rest we cannot ascertain satisfactorily. It was, however, most confidently reported yes- terday evening, that William Lacon Childe, Esq. will certainly offer himself. Another week will dispel all doubt; and by our next publication we shall be able to give our readers satisfactory ' nfprination. It may be interesting to many of our readers to be informed, thai* although no contested election has taken place sinee 1722, FOUR occurred at that peiiod in succession, namely, in 1710, 1713, 1714, and the year above- named : and it may gratify the curiosity of others to know the names of the Candi- dates and the numbers of Votes polled for each 011 those occasions, which were as follow :— 10.— John Kynaston, of Hordley Robert Lloyd, of Aston Ilenry Lord Newport Corbet, of Park There is an inquiry for bonded wheats for the southern markets of Europe, and some sales have been effected; but at extremely low prices, Ihe best fresh Dantzig only bringing 30s. a quarter In Holland there is also a demand for foreign malting barley, nod the prices are good whe compared with the value of this description of foreign grain in England. There is a good prospect at present ihat a great proportion of the bonded grain in the kingdom will be exported during the winter and spring months. EXTRAORDINARY FOX- CHASE.— On Thors. day, the 17th instant, at half- past seven o'clock ill the morning, the well- known staunch fox hounds, | the property of R. H. Jenkins, Esq of Lanharran. House, Glamorganshire, unkennelled a fine old fox at Margam Woods, and after running him three hours and five minutes ( without a check), a com- puted distance of at least thirty miles, he was killed in grand style, near Coytrahene, the seat of M. P. Treherne, Esq. at whose hospitable mansion tbe numerous field of sportsmen were most bountifully regaled.— This astonishing inhabitant of Margam Woods weighed twenty- six pounds, and measured five feet seven inches from the end of the nose to the tip of the brush ; which honourable badge was carried off by the worthy owner of the pack. • On Saturday week, two greyhounds, the pro- perly of John Wood, Esq. while very closely pur. suing a bare in the neighbourhood of Penarth Church, Glamorganshire, were precipitated over the cliff, a height of 250 feet, aud, wonderful to relate, escaped unhurt. The hare doubled at the edge ofthe cliff, and the dogs being at full stretch, were unable to recover themselves. This Day is published, 2056 1039 1S.

It is stated that Captain Franklin, the com- mander of the late Land Arctic Expedition, is sanguine as to the ultimate success of Captain Parry; that the appearance which the Polar Sea presented at the mouth of the Coppermine River, aud for the distance of 500 miles along the coast, north- cast from thence, which was as far as their resources and the weather would permit them to plore, impressed the expedition wilh a confidence that Captain Parry would this year be able in accomplish his purpose; and that it is considered probable Ihat the first intelligence respecting the Northern Squadron will be received from Russia, through her settlements on the North- west coast of America. WALES, MARRIED. On the 22d inst. at Ruthin, Mr. Robert Roberts, to Susannah, eldest daughter of Mr. Richard Williams, of the same place. DIED.

Wynn gave a Ball and Supper in the Town Hall, Welsh Pool, by which Mrs. Evans, of the Bear Inn, gained herself much credit for the elegance aud neatness in tbe arrangements. The Ball Room was tastefully chalked, and decorated w ith flowers and evergreens, which had a highly pleasing effect. — The excellent Band of the Montgtwseryshire Cavalry attended, and increased the delights of the evening by their masterly and enlivening perform- ances. The Officers of the Cavalry appeared in their uniform, which, we dare say, bad a winning effect. The room decorated wilh such taste, the beauty it contained, the red coals, the fine martial strains at interval's, were all calculated lo delight the senst's of the gay assemblage.—' At one o'clock, the company adjourned to the Supper Room, where every thing the season could produce, or art invent, vvas in abundance; and arranged With such taste and elegance, that will stamp the name of Mrs. Evans upon the memory of every one who loves good cheer.— The dancing was resumed after Supper, and continued till the morning had far advanced.— Among the company ( which consisted of 150), we noticed Lord Clive and Lady Lucy Clive, Lady Charlotte Finch Hatton, Lord Sidney, the Misses Townshend, Mr. and Mrs. Panton Corbett, Mr. Lyon, Mr. Knowles, Rev. R. Mytton, Col. Wynn, Col. Davies, Col. Dallas, Captains Pugh, Farmer, Devereux, and Jones; Lieutenants Williames, Jeffreys, Jones, Pugh, and Corrie; the Misses Jones,. the Misses Davies, & c. & c. WONDERFUL AND IMPORTANT DISCOVERY. — We are happy to inform the Publie, notwith- standing the prevailing prejudice that existed in the minds of several eminent engineers of this and the adjoining counties, that the great under- shot wheel at Mr. Thomas Jones's flannel manufactory on the Severn at Pool Quay, near Welsh Pool, was on Tuesday, Oct. 22d, raised ( on an entire new plan, by Mr. Joseph Thomas, engineer, Welsh Pool) by the action of the water to an astonishing height, by which plan the wheel is made capable of working at a flood of 12 feet from low water; its construction being on such a principle that there needs no alteration of the interior movements. NEWTOWN FAIR, MONTGOMERYSHIRE.— Never in the memory of the oldest persons in the habit of attending this fair was there such a super- abundant supply of Cattle, Sheep, aud Pigs, as on the 24th instant, and never was there so great1 a depression in the value of Agricultural Stock.— Many dealers who used to attend and purchase largely were absent; prices consequently were very low; and many thousand Sheep, as well as great quantities of Cattle, were obliged to be driven back unsold. The number of Sheep we have heard variously stated at from 20,000 to 30,000. Fat Cattle did not. bear their numerical proportion to those of other descriptions ; they averaged about 3d. per lb. Good Calving- Heifers, that used to sell for about £ 12, now only fetched £ 5 or £ 6, and several good Heifers were bought as low as £ 4. Bullocks were full 20 per cent, lower. Fat Sheep averaged about 3d. per lb. Southdown Wethers, that used to sell at 35s. were offered at 15s. per head. Hill Wethers, which used to fetch from 15s. to 18s. now only fetched 8s. to 9s. Pig's were also uncommonly low, and good Pork Pigs were sold at l| d. to 2| d. per lb. ABERYSTWYTH at this time may be consi- dered one of the most reasonable places for families to reside at in the kingdom; the markets being well supplied with beet from 3d. to 4d. per lb.; mutton, which this part of the Principality is so celebrated for, from 2d. to 3d. per lb.; and other meat equally cheap ; g'ood fat geesC from Is. to Is. 6d. each ; ducks from Is. to Is. 6d. a couple; fowls at 8d. a couple; and turkeys for about 2s. each. The Fishery being productive^ there is a great variety of fish, and at a low price ; and, for the winter season, lodgings may be had at an extremely moderate rate. The New Bailiffs of WELSH PooL are Thomas Morgan and William Jones, Esqrs.,; and for MONTGOMERY, Mr. Jones, of Sutton, aud Mr. Jones, of Court Calmore. The inhabitants of South Wales appear alive to the injurious conscquences that would inevitably result to their interests, by the removal of the packet establishment from Milford. A respectable meeting of the inhabitants of Cardiff ( convened by the bailiffs) has been held, for taking into con- sideration the above proposition; when several resolutions proposed by Richard Blakemore, Esq. and seconded by the Hon. W. B. Grey, were unanimously adopted. Meetings of the counties of Glamorgan and Carmarthen are called, for the like purpose. Flintshire Agricultural Meeting. The Anniversary Meeting of this Institution took place on the 21st inst. at Mold.— The show of Stock was very poor indeed, and the Plowing but indifferent ; tiie day, too, was very unfavourable, and, in consequence, the attendance not so numerous as, under other circumstances, might have been an- ticipated. The dinner took place at the Black Lion Inn; and amongst the company were noticed— F. R. Price, Esq. of Brvn- v- Pys, the President, in the Chair ; II. W. Evton,* Esq Vice- President ; Sir T. Mostyn, Bart. M. P. Sir E. P. Lloyd, Bart. M. P. Rev. J C. Potter ( of Sychton), Rev. Mr. Clough, E. Lloyd, Esq ( of Rhagati), E. Knight, Esq. ( of Rhual), S. Boydell, Esq. ( of The Manor), IL Roberts, Esq. ( of Coed- du), & c. & c. On the cloth being with- drawn, the following toasts were drank:—" The King"— 44 The Duke of York and tbe Army"— 44 The Duke of Clarence and the Navy"-— 44 The Lord Lieutenant of tbe County"— 44 Prosperity and Perseverance to the Flintshire Agricultural Society." — The Chairman then proceeded to state the adjudi- cation and appropriate the Prizes, as follow : — The Prize for the Local Plowing for the Hundred ofMaelor, was won by Mr. Studley, and the Chair- man said, as Mr. S. was his tenant, he would in person present the prize to him. For the Hundred of Mold, to Mr. Woodfine, of Saltney ; the Hundred of Coleshill% to Mr. Taylor; the Hundred of Pres- tatyn, to Mr. Dawson, of Nant; the Hundred qf Rhyddlan, to Mr. Parry. The Main Plowing Prize ( a superb silver cup), was adjudged to No. 2, Mr. Taylor's. Subsequent in point of merit, were Mr. Parry, and Mr. Woodfine.— The Medal for the best turnip crop, as owner and occupier, was adjudged to the Hon. Lady Glynne. The second Prize lo Sir T. Mostyn. For- the best crop of turnips, as tenant, to Mr. Williams, of Celyn ; the 2d, to Mr. Dawson, of Nant.— The Prize for the best fallow, not less than ten acres, to Mr. Sleight, of Rliydd. For tbe best summer fallow, to Mrs. Lloyd, of Prestatyn. For the best crop of beans, not less than five acres, to Mr. James Rigby, of 11awarden. The turnip sweep- stakes was won by Mr. Dawson, of Nant. The five- acre turnip sweepstakes to Lady Glynne ; the three- acre ditto, to the Rev. Hope Wynne Eyton. Mr. Hunt had the premium for the best bull ; Mr. Dawson, of Nant, for the best boar; and Mr. Roger Jones, for the best long- woolled sheep. The Ho- norary Medals were adjudged to the Rev. J. C. Polter, of Sychton, Mr. Roberts, of Coed- du, and Sir E P. Lloyd, Bart.— The two- guinea stakes, for the best heifer, to Mr. Lloyd, of Rhagatt; for the best one- year old bull, to Mr. Boydell. The prize for the day- labourer in husbandry for the longest period of service, was given to Edward Hughes, of Peubedvv, for fifty- eight years service in one family. There vvas no claimant for prizes for the best stock of bees. The Chairman proposed—" The Successful Can- didates, and may there never he a deficiency of them to carry off tbe Prizes of the Society," After which tbe health of 44 the Chairman" was given with 3 times 3 hearty cheers. In returning thanks, Mr. PRICE said, he was' glad lo see so numerous and respectable a Meeting, notwithstanding the existing depression of the times, and particularly as it re- spected Agriculture. He trusted, however, that with a long pull, and a strong pull, and a pull altogether, they would yet be enabled to lift up their heads, and once more participate in the sun- shine of prosperity. But he would not trouble them with a discussion on agriculture, and therefore concluded by proposing the health of 44 The Vice Chairman, Hope Wynne Eylon, Esq." with 3 times3.— Mr. EYTON expressed his thanks, for having heen thus coupled with the landed interests of the county of Flint. Although he was a bad farmer, there was none more anxious for the prosperity of the Meeting than himself, and he heartily hoped all present would meet next year under more favourable auspices. The next toast was 44 The Judges of the Show, Messrs. Boydell, Sudworth, and Jones Hughes;" the latter of whom, in very neat terms, returned thanks, and proposed the health of Mr. Dawson, of Nant, who also expressed his wannest thanks. The CHAIRMAN said he had before omitted to mention, that the sweepstakes of five acres of beans, was won by Sir Thomas Mostyn, Bart, and tbe prize for the best stallion had been adjudged to Mr. Con- nab, of Chester. He wished at the same time to propose tbe health of a gentleman intimately con- nected with the best interests of the county, and no less remarkable for the amiability of his manner, than for his generous, liberality. He meant 44 the Health of Sir T. Mostyn, Bart." who had raised his annual subscription from lOgs. to 30gs. per annum. The toast was drank with 3 times 3, and loud cheer- ing. The Rev. Mr. Potter then proposed the health of another Baronet, equally liberal and respected, who had also increased his suhsciiption from lOgs. to 20gs.; be gave 44 Sir Edward Price Lloyd, the worthy Member for tbe Borough ;" 3 times 3, aud loud and long applause. Sir E. P. LLOYD said, be could not bul feel pleased and honoured by this mark of respect, and he attri- buted it entirely to partiality, and to having his merits overrated. He had done no more than his duty, in doing all he could for the interests of the county. With respect to the premiums he bad never vet been successful; but he would not despair, and he was determined to enter his name down for every sweepstakes for the next Meeting. ( Hear, hear.) The VICE- PRESIDENT, in very handsome terms, gave the health of their respected Secretary, 44 Mr. Boydell, to whom the Society is so much indebted," with 3 times3. Mr. Boyd el'l expressed his thanks, and observed he was proud his humble services had obtained the approbation of so respectable a Meeting*. — The President then noticed, that Mr. Nicholls, of London, through the medium of Mr. Boydell, had presented the Society with 7 vols, of the proceedings of the Board of Agriculture, with other publications of great value, in addition to becoming an annual subscriber. Mr. Nieholls's health was then drank with 3 times 3, and Mr. Bovdell returned thanks.— 41 Ladv Glynne;" 3 times 3.— 4 Cvnric Llovd, Esq." — 44 Tiie Rev. Whitehall Whitehall Davies, Chair- man of the Quarter Sessions."— 44 Mr. Lloyd, of Rhagatt. 1' Mr. LLOYD said, had he been addressing a com- pany of a different character, bis rising there might be deemed an intrusion. He should be happy, under other circumstances, to enrol himself as a subscriber to so excellent an Institution; in Flintshire, how- ever, lie was barely a Freeholder, and had not that connexion with the county which he had in other places. lie congratulated the Meeting on the credit such a Society did to the County at large. In DEN. BIGH5HIRE and MONTGOMERYSHIRE, alas! there appeared to he no inclination to institute a similar Meeting, and follow this first of pursuits— so cre- ditable to tbe gentlemen who heard him, and to the occupiers of lands also. The pressure of the times, severe as it was, did not quail their hearts,— they looked forward to better days, and to a state of pro- sperity, which, he trusted, already dawned. He hoped to be almost always present at the Meetings of the Society, Meetings which must, he was per- suaded, in their result, be productive of great good, and become, as tbey deserved, eminently successful. ( Hear, and Cheering.) The following toasts were given by the Chairman : 44 Live and let live ;" drank with unbounded ap. plause— 44 The Right Hon. Lord Kenyon"— 44 The Vicar of Mold."— 44 Mr. Banks, of Sychton," was then proposed by the Rev. Mr. Potter; after which the Vicc President gave tbe health of 44 Mr. Cooke." — Mr. Boyde- U thought it proper to state, that Mr. Cooke had, in the most handsome manner, signified, that ifany of his tenantry won prizesat the Meeting, he intended to pay to the Society, a subscription equal to the amount of such prizes.— 44 Success to Fox- hunting."— The President's health was again drank with 3 times 3, and a grea, t variety of other toastg and septiments followed.

We understand that Lord He^ vey and the Hon. Mr. Shore are now canvassing the University for the vacancy occasioned by the death of Mr. Smyth ; and it is expected that Mr. Goulburn, Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, and Sir John Copley, the Solicitor General, will also offer them- selves as candidates.— Cambridge Paper. Mr. Robert Grant is, it is said, a Candidate for the Representation of the University of Cambridge. We have also heard that ihe Speaker is named as likely to be returned by the University. The death of Mr. Mundy having occasioned a vacancy in the representation of the county of Derby, Francis Mundy, Esq. of Markeaton, has been induced to offer himself as his successor. Sir George Crewe, Bart, has also been solicited by his friends to come forward on the occasion, but has declined the invitation. Lieut. Gen. Lord Combermere, who has been lately appointed to succeed the late Lieut. Gen. Sir S. Auchmuty, in the command of the troops in Ireland, does not assume the command, as Commander- in- Chief of the Troops in that part of the United Kingdom ;— that office being abolished on the retirement of Sir D. Baird, but merely as Lieut. General, Commanding the Forces. The reduction in the Pay being, therefore, very con, sidcrable, the Office of the Commander of the Forces in Ireland can consequently be considered, at the preseut moment, more as an honorary than an advantageous Appointment. We are informed such is the improved state of the trade, and the flattering prospect of its still further improvement, that at a recent sale of frames at the Fleur- de- lis Inn, in this town, this species of property more than doubled its value, compared with the price frames sold at two or three years ago.— Leicester Journal.

SUGAR FOR PRESERVING FISH.— Dr. M'Cul- loch, of Edinburgh, has ascertained Ihat the antiseptic quality of sugar is sufficient to preserve fish in the most excellent condition. He states, that this substance is so active, that fish may be preserved in a dry state, and perfectly fresh, by means of sugar alone, and even with a very small quantity of it. He has thus kept salmon, whitings, and cod, for an indefinite length of time; nud hy this simple means fresh fish may be kept in that state some days, so as to be as good when boiled as when just caught. It is added, that " ifdry and kept free from mouldioess, there seems no limit to their preservation; and they are much better in this way than when salted. The sugar gives no disagreeable taste. This process is par- ticularly valuable in making what is called kip. pered salmon; and Ihe fish preserved in this manner are far superior in quality and flavour to those which are salted or smoked. If desired, as much salt may be used as to give tbe taste that may be required; but this substance does not conduce to Iheir preservation. In the preparation, it is barely necessary to open the fish, and to apply the sugar lo the muscular part, placing it in a horizontal position for two or three days, that this substance may penetrate. After this it may be dried ; and it is only farther necessary to wipe and ventilate it occasionally, to prevent mouldincss. A table spoonful of brown sugar is sufficient in this manner for a salmon of five or six pounds weight; and if salt is desired, a teaspooufu! or more may be added; saltpetre may be used in- stead, in the same proportion, if it is desired to make the kipper hard." MRS. GARRICK.— The remains of this Lady ( see 4th Page) were privately interred, by those of her hushaiid, in Westminster Abbey, on Friday lust.— Mrs. Garrick has left considerable properly, and considerable legacies to several charitable in- stitutions and to the poor ofthe parishes of Hampton and St. Martin's in the Fields, in which her country and town residences are situated. We are assured that most of the paragraphs which appeared in Ihe newspapers respecting this Lady, are wholly untrue, or greatly exaggerated; as for instance, that which slated the funeral expenses of Mr Garrick nol lo have been paid; they were paid by Mr. Uarrick's Executors. The, asserted irrepair of the houses at Hampton, and in the Adelphi, is equally untrue, with the exception of ordinary wjear and tear.

The business of these Sessions did not terminate until Saturday evening. The lust case which occu- pied the attention of the Court ( Sir John Wrottesley,' Bart, chairman) was the trial of William Homer ( a common informer), for conspiring willi others nol in custody, from malicious motives, lo suspend, hy false representations, the licpnse of Charles Butler, of tbe Lamb public. house, Wolverhampton. The offence was clearly proved, and the prisoner sentenced lo twelve months imprisonment. Rex v. Attwood.— This was a case of most gross and brutal assault, committed in the iieiglibourhood of Perry Barr, where the parties reside. The de- fendant, Attwood, is nn elderly man in good circum- stances, and the prosecutrix, Sarah Shelly, is a poor married woman, whose husband is defendants tenant. The woman stated her case willi great propriety, and it appeared . lhat the defendant, on some trifling oc casion, after abusing hpr and using mnjiy luirriil oaths, heat her in a most unmerciful manlier, until the poor woman fainted. A respectable surgeon de- posed that he attended her in consequence of the in- jury which she had received, and that her life vvas in danger. It appeared also that the parties had heen before the Magistrates of the district, when the defendant agreed to compromise the affair by paying £ 7, three pounds of which were deducted for rent. The defendant, however, did riot fulfil Ihe condition of the agreement by paving the remaining £ 4, and the case therefore came before the Court. Mrs. Shelly managed her cause so well that the learned Chairman saiil she was above a match for any counsellor— and wlnit was better, her statement had made a great im- pression on Ihe Court. The learned Counsel for the defendant very good- lmmoiiredly acknowledged the superiority ofthe lady's rhetoric, and offered to ful- fil the agreement maite before the Magistrates, lie could not pretend to justify the assault, but would leave the case lu' llie niercv of the Court, aware that his client, if found guilty, might be sentenced tu 12 mouths imprisonment, or more, aud lo bard labour too, under a bite Act of Parliament. The Court however considered rliat ihe defendant had hurtlieu- ed the othpr party with additional expense since the case had been heard before tbe Magistrates of the district, and a verdict of guilty was therefore taken, on an understanding that Mrs. Shelly should be paid £ 10, her suigeon £ 5, and all other expenses defrayed I bv defendant. The decision gave universal satis- factiun to a crowded auditory. WARWICK SESSIONS. The following case of wanton aud unparalleled barbarity, excited the strongest feeling of horror and disgust :— Ann Saunders, Maria Birchleu, Esther Bates, William Jones, William Worrall, William Hudson, anil Oliver Turner, were indicted for having at Bir- mingham, on the26thof May last, violently assaulted, bruised, anil ill- treated John Archer, w ith intent to kill him. There was another count, charging the prisoners with a - enmmon assault.— The prisoners have been in gaol since a few days after the assault took place, and tlierr trial has been twice postponed in consequence of the prosecutor's inability In appear against them. They severally pleaded Not Guilty. ° Tbe prosecutor was hrortght into courton a palliass, supported l » v pillows, and placed upon the table, so as to be able to give his testimony vvith as little difficulty to himself as possible. A more affecting spectacle has seldom been witnessed in a court of justice; and, as was truly observed hy Mr. Reader, who conducted the case for the prosecution, it pre- sented an awful warning tu all, hut especially to the young, lo avoid the haunts of infamy and vice. The helpless and almost hopeless condition of the sufferer, his emaciated appearance, his pale countenance, and above all, the evident symptoms of a speedy dissolu- tion which pervaded bis whole frame, made a deep nnd visible impression upon every one present, ex- cept the prisoners, who apparently beheld the nil. fortunate victim of their inhuman barbarity with llie m ist callous indifference. Several of the windows were opened to admit air, and some of the unfortunate man's friends were constantly in attendance upon him, tn administer to his wants, and lo prevent hiin from fainting. Mr. Render having stated ( he facts of the case, proceeded lo examine the prosecutor, John Archer, who in a voice almost inaudible ex cept to thuse around him, deposed as follows :— I live at Alcester, anil am 28 years of age. On the 26th of MONMOUTH SESSIONS. The Quarter Sessions for the county of Mon- mouth, which began on Monday, the 14th, lasted until the afternoon of Tuesday, notwithstanding t| j,. grati- fying circumstance nf there being uo prisoner ill the calendar for trial. On! tbe first day, the Court was occupied fur some me, in consequence of Appeal? from certain inliu-' itantsof the town of Monmouth against the poor- rate, anil Overseers* and church. wardens* accounts.' which were quashed by consent, the Counsel for ihe appellants declaring that the objections of his clients were not levelled against the officers personally, whose honour anil honesty were unimpeachable, but against the form of the rate, and Ihe admission ( amongst others) of a charge for llie payment ofa bt incurred by iheir predecessors in office. At these Sessions, the hearing of the Appeal of e Rev. Watson More, Vicar of Trevillter ( Ponty- pool) against ihe receut iilterniicm in the poor- rate; hy which he was charged to the full amount of his' receipts for vicarial tithes, enine on to be heard, and excited great interest in the Court. Il appeared that the overseers, in consequence of the direction' of a parish meeting, had, in supposed conformity to the celebrated Norfolk cases, assessed the vicar to the full amount of his profits ; but they had not taken into consideration the comparative inapplicability of the principle to the case of the parish of Trevitiier, in which material proportions of the property asses- sed consist of houses ami works. It appeared that the rale had bpen altered only in the item of charge on the vicar ; those on houses nnd works ( by w hiclfit was nut nlleged no profits were made) remaining at considerably below Iheir value, judging by the ad- mitted sculeof profit. After a very long and patient healing on the part of the Court, on the suggestion nf one uf ilie Magistrates, it was agreed That the rate should he amended ; anil, after considerable dis. cussion on Ihe Bench, it was finally determined that he charge on Ihe vicarial tithes should be raised from £ 50 to £ 100 ( the new rate had raised it to £ 370), and all the olher items of charge remain the same. On the second day of Ihe Sessions, the returns relative to the county- rate assessments were pre- sented, and ordered to be taken into consideration at the ensuing Sessions. On this day also came oil to be tried a cn- p of as- sault, in which Sarah, the wife of William Parrv, late a work man al the VartPg Iron Works, . was pro- secutrix, and Thomas James Gritlon, indicted by the name of Thomas Gritton, a clerk in the said works, was defendant. In the course of tbe evidence ad- duced, it appeared thai HIP wages of Ihe prosecu- trix's husband had been paid in simp. goods, and that nntPS had lipen given her for the remainder, payment of which in money had hpen refused; that, upon such refusal, application bad been made to a Magis- trate for redress, and Ihe prosecutrix went back to Gritlon, who had previously endorsed tlie notes or orders, requiring payment in money ; lint Grittnn, instead of payment, abused and assaulted ihe prose- cutrix. The jury found the defendant Guilty. When Ihe verdict hail been pronounced, Mr. Muggridge ruse, anil stated that, after what hail passed," he con- sidered it but justice to Ihe very respectable indi- viduals who were thp principals in the Varteg Works, anil who did not reside ou liie spot, to state publicly lhat, upon a representation made by him to one of them, of this and other instances of payment of wages otherwise than in money, he had expressed his deter, luination that, in future", the workmen should hp paid weekly, and iu money only : this communication was received with evident satisfaction hy the whole- Court. 16 1 26 The Havenbill.

THE ROYAL FAMILY, NOBI- LITY, GENTRY, and LADIES & GENTLE- MEN may rely on they will not have a Hair fall off or turn grey, by now using PRINCE'S celebrated RUSSIA OIL, as it is so improved wilb an extra valuable Ingredient, through which il has made the Russia Oil the greatest Nourisher and Preserver 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 Nourisher to tbe Roots of the Hair, that if it even has began lo 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 tiie Scurf, from Infancy lo old Agp, and will always keep the Head and Hair clean and beautiful. Gentlemen who have lost their ilair, and have the least Sign of Roots of Hair remaining, by lining re- gularly, for a few Months, Prince's Improved Russia Oil, with the extra valuable Ingredient, will be sure to restore it, and produce a fine Head of Hair, which Hundreds have experienced. Even Medical Gen tlemen 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 fo any other Oil for dressing thi ir own or false Hair, as il gives it a natural Gloss, softens und curls it. Gen- tlemen. wearing Powder ought to use it instead of Pomatum : it also produces F. vehrows, Whiskers, & c. and, through the exira Ingredient, it will now always keep pleasant in all Climates. AsV for Prince's Improved Russia Oil, with tbe extra Ingredient, and observe " Prince" on the Wrapper and Seals; and his Address, " A. Prince, 9, Poland.

It is. no Wonder that Ladies and Gentlemen have complained of late of the Russia Oil not being of Service to the Hair, as they have found out that un- principled Persons have sold them Counterfeits. *%*, Ladies and Gpntlfinen will be particular, as Impostors have made the Covers of the Counterfeit ttussia Oil so much like the Genuine, and even imitated the Original Proprietor's Name, and also copied thp Affidavit of the Original Proprietor, made before, the Lord Mayor; therefore Purchasers should be cautious, ami havje it , pf the Proprietor, or of a res pec table Vender.

I left the house between seven and eight o'clock rather in toxicated, and was standing at the wall, when Bates and her companion came up to me, and taking me by the arms foreedme h* U> Bates's house, which is, not far from the public- house. 1 was too much intox icated to offer much resistance, but I did all I could as I had no wish to accompany them. When we got into the house, they locked the door. I insisted upon going out, but Bates took my hat off to prevent me, and ran upstairs with it. I followed her am1 demanded it, but she refused. I gave her 2s. am immediately afterwards found that she had robbed me of I7s," I charged her with the robbery, and demanded my money. She said she would knoc me downstairs, and struck me on the breast. I went down to call the watch, when the prisoner, Saunders, met me, shut the door, and running to the fire, seized the poker, with which, as I was endeavouring to open the door, she struck me over the head and breast, knocked me down, and severely bruised the back of my head. Whilst I was getting up again, Ihe prisoner Birchlev came in to their assistance, and ran a pair of snuffers into my ear. She aud Saunders then fell upon me with their fists. Bates, who had followed me down stairs, was at this time pretending to faint in a chair, and Birchley went out for the purpose of bringing the runners to take me into custody. On her return, she brought with her several men, amongst whom were the prisoners, Worrall and Hudson, and also Oliver Turner. The men began to push me about, and Turner put his fist to my throat and swore lie would take ^ ly life before I left the house. I called forthe watcH,' and they then all fell upon me, and heat me. I suocepded in getting out. of the house, but being a stranger, ran against a dead wa'l, where the prisoner ( Jones) met me, and, aided by Hudson, dragged me back tothe house, when they again all joined and beat me out of the house a second time, and I received a blow on the back of my head with a poker, which knocked me down in the yard. 1 was endeavouring- to rise, when Turner knocked me down again with his fist, jumped upon me, and seized me hy the throat to prevent me calling- out murder. I had before been imploring mercv, begging them to spare my life, and if I had done any thing wrong to take me to the watch- house, but they said it was in vain, for they would have my life before I left the house, arid nothing else would satisfy them. I soon afterwards became insensible, and remained so till the middle of the following day, when I found myself in ihe King's Head public- house. I lay at Birmingham 15 weeks before I could be removed to Alcester, and was so much exhausted hy the removal as to he unable to taste food for a fortnight. I have not been an hour out of bed for the last five weeks. I am unable to staud, have entirely lost the use of my lower ex- tremities, and feel myself getting worse daily. I was in good health and at work the day before I went to Birmingham. Several questions were put to the witness by the prisoners, but his answers only tended to show their greater criminality. Another witness, named Pern berton, corroborated the whole of the testimony relative to the most material parts of the assault which he witnessed, but durj » t not interfere to prevent it, lest he should be subjected to similar treatment. In their defence, the prisoners severally denied any participation in the outrage, but called I witnesses in support of iheir respective statements. The Chairman summed up the evidence, and the Jury found all the prisoners Guilty upon lire fiist count, viz. of an assault with intent to kill; and after a most suitable address, they were sentenced to be imprisoned in the House, of Correction, and kept to hard labour for eighteen months^ and at the ex- piration of that period to find sureties, themselves in .£' 10 each, and two in £ 5 each, to keep the peace for two years. ( piDied, on the 4th instant, at Grahams! on, by Glasgow, Wm. Gordon, aged 97, who was buried on Thursday following in the Anderson burying ground. This singular individual, who had for ten years past worn tbe same coat, patched and mended,, and who is said for seven years never to have used soap in washing himself, left behind hini an immense quantity of keys, old arid new, highly burnished ; a hatful of pins ; fifteen large screws and from 90 to 100 hammers, adzes, and gimblets a great quantity of bottles and jars; aud what may appear most singular, a roomful of boy's tops, peeries, and whips, Szc. His collection of sticks is curious. These, with gold and silver watches, ar in the possession of his executor. For many year S he wore a polished key on his thumb, and a gold watch in oue pocket and a silver one in the other SURREY SESSIONS.— yew Trending Midi.— The Sessions commenced last week at Hursemong- er- lane, when the learned Chairman, T. Harrison, Esq. in the course of his address to the Grand Jury, adverted to the punishment by the Treadiuo- Mill, in a manner which cannot but be interesting to the public. There was one particular subject upon which he deemed it his duty to address a few observations to the Gentlemen of the Grand Jury. It was with reference to the mode of punishment recently adopted at the House of Correction in Cold- hath fields, and at Brixton ; his remarks would more particularly apply to the latter place. There appeared to have gone forth a mistake as to ihe degree of labour required in undergoing the punishment of the Treading Mill, Upwards of a year had now elapsed since the iustituM tution of this mode of punishiop- offenders had com- menced. He had considered it his duly to make every enquiry as to the impression which had gone abroad, and the result had been most satisfacTory, The Magistrates and those who had the controul of the prison, had studiously avoided making it any thing like a place of comfort, Whatever had been considered necessary with si view to the health ofthe. prisoners, had been provided ; ajid this, in the opi- nion of the wisest philanthropists, was all that was necessary ;— all beyond that, was only holding out encouragement to crime, and had consequently been carefully avoided, A good deal had been said ofthe hardship of. the labour; he had in his hand a very accurate drawing of the Trending Mill, which lie wished the Grand. Jury, to examine. They would perceive that all the labour consisted in going up the steps The power of the wheel for grinding corn depended upon the weight or pressure of Ihe persons upon it. So far from the labour being severe, it was not more so than the common labour of digging a ditch. It was, he believed, a species of labon/ whieb was extremely irksome, and for that reason was com- plained of by persons suffering for misdemeanour. It certainly was not a severe, but merely an irksome labour, and this it was that rendered the idle and dis- solute so little disposed to submit to it It was on that account he was induced to state what he was persuaded would be heard with satisfaction. The uantrty of corn ground by means of the machine was from ten to twelve quarters a day, and when the period arrived that the prisoners were to be discharcr- " d, in order that they might have tto pretence for re- urning to their evil doings, ihe Magistrates in every case made an allowance in proportion to the time they had laboured ot the Mill, so ihnt it never could be said they were driven to the necessity of resorting o theirdepredations again. Tliev uniformly had mote than sufficient to carry them home and maintain them ill they could seek for employment. The effect of this system of punishment had been a very consider- d'nninulion of the number of public offenders. At the Lent Assizes for the year ib21 the prisoners for trial amounted lo MO ; at the subsequent Summer Assizes they were77, making ; i total of 267 prisoners for 1821. This was previous to the punishment by the Mill having been adopted. At. the Lent Assizes for 1822, which was after ibe Mill was in operation, the number of prisoners was only 90, arid at the Sum- mer Assizes 4< i, making iu the whole I3f » for the year ; and, therefore, leaving a balance, if he might so express himself, iu favour of ' he year 1822, of no less a number of prisoners than 131 It thus became evident that there were fewer prisoners by 131 tried : it the Assizes for this county in 1822, than in 1821. With regard to the comparative state of the number of persons put to labour at the Mill, he. bad thought it his duty to obtain a return, in order to ascertain whether tliey had increased or diminished. He found that within a given period after the Mill had been in activity, there had been 219 prisoners punished, and subsequently, within the same period, only 154, making a diminution of 65 within the same relative period. He should be sorry to be understood as meaning to infer that such beneficial effects were produced solely by the circumstance of this kind of punishment having been resorted to. Il was but fair to presume that the cheapness of provisions nd the return of more prosperous tinies, had ren- dered men less disposed to the commission of crime ; he had., however, no doubt that much was to be attributed to the operation of the Mill. He had thought it right to make these remarks, iu order lo obviate an erroneous impression. The labour was, he would repeat, not improperly or unnecessarily severe ; but il was of that irksome nature which made delinquents who had once experienced it, dread their return to a place where such a punishment would ha repeated. MAJOR FARRAR — Some lime ago it was stated in the Loudon papers that Major Farrar, of Man- chester, and formerly of Ihe 18tli Dragoons, was killed in a skirmish with the Royalists of the Caraccas. The friends of this gentleman have, however, lately received a letter from him in which he explains the mistake to have arisen from the drath of a Lieut. Farley. Among many other circumstanccs, be stales that Of five thousand men who came from Great Britain, only four hundred are now jjlive!" and that not more than five hundred fell in aclion; the rest perished in consequence of tbe severe privations to which they were exposed, causing sore legs, fevers ( typhus probably), See.— Some idea of their sufferings may be formed from the circumstance, that for si* months together, both officers and men were obliged lo subsist oi) animal food? without either bread or salt. PETRARCH. SONN. ET IV. LIFE onward flies without a moment's rest, And, in pursuit, Death urges on apace : Dismay and doubt are warring in my breast, And sorrows past, and ills of present race. No sweet remembrance— no delightful hope, Can sooth the anguish of this phrenzie. d heart, Which might, iu vain, with such affliction cope, Did not my temper'd soul a pitying aid impart. Can f reflect! The well remembered tale Of past affection is a pang I dread ; Borne ou the rage of Fortune's angry gale 1 view the gathering winds & tempest overspread.

FOR THE SALOPIAN JOURNAL. Agricultural and Universal Distress. OBSERVATIONS On the Letters of MERCATOR and AMICUS PATRIAE inserted in the Salopian Journals of October 2 and October 16, 1822. MR. EDITOR, From the Letter of MERCATOR and that of AMICUS PATRICK, we are brought to see at length the con- sequences of the System of late years adopted, which made up the " FATAL DELUSION" complained of by Mr. Spooner at the BIRMINGHAM MEETING of January 4, lb20, to take into consideration the DISTRESSING STATE OF COMMERCE AND MANUFAC- TURES. Mercator discovers that we can go 011 very little longer with our EXPENDITURE, and that because of tiie extreme degression of Agricultural produce, of a'l kinds, lie allows that the owners aud occupiers of tiie soil, are the manufacturers1 best customers ; and that they are on the eve of being lost to them, and that nothing but improved priccs can preserve them. Me'rcalor asserts tiiat " OUR MANUFACTURERS WERE NEVER MORE GENERALLY OR MORE FULLY EMPLOYED." It is well if they are so. It would • appear they were not so, or at least not advanta- geously employed, three years ago. They have not increased their home customers, the home growers of corn, since that time. They have, it is said, got a new set to take off tlieir goods ; but is it at uu ADVANCED or at a GREATLY REDUCED PRICE ? Mercator says that their manufactures are sold " AT LOVVER RATES THAN WERE EVEIL BEFORE KNOWN." What sort of prices these are, President Monroe informs the American Congress, Dec. 6, " 1819. Speaking of European Manufacturers, Ir says, " Their manufactures, for want of a ready " or a profitable market tit home, have been " shipped to the United States, and in many in- "' stances sold at a price below their current value " at the piaee of manufacture. Uniformity in the " demand and price of an article is highly desirable " to the DOMESTIC ( i. e. American) manufacturer. " The great reduction in the price of the principal " articles of domestic growth, and the consequent < c fall in the price of labour, APPARENTLY SO favour- << able to the success of domestic manufacturers, " have not shielded them against other causes " adverse to their prosperity." Mercator's low prices abroad are the consequence ofthe confessed ruin of the land owners and occu- piers at home. The effect which must follow, according to Mercator, ( and is he, under that disguise, the STATESMAN represented ?) . is nothing short of NATIONAL BANKRUPTCY, UNLESS AGRICULTURAL prices can be advanced! Mercator would appear to ENQUIRE into THE CAUSE of what he pronounces to be. ALARMINGLY LOW PRICES, which must till every INTELLIGENT WELL- WISHER to his country WITH DISMAY. lie tells 11s that the supply is now greater than the demand, and is likely to be, for some time ; so that the most substantial fanners think it unadvisable to keep their corn in the . stack in expectation of its advance. There is no doubt but that demand regulates the price of everything. But Amicus can point out other reasons for a pre- sent superabundant supply, than the vast efforts which have been made in late years to equal the supply to the demand of our vastly increased popu- lation ; to do which, we ought to- produce, in pro- sperous seasons, far more than the usual demand, if we would avoid the evils of famine, and very high prices in bad years,, and a dependence on foreigners which would subject us to them. At sueh times Mercator asserts that the highest prices w ill not produce more than two millions of quarters of Corn from foieigners, which may be an insuffi- cient addition to our own growth to prevent the most dire calamities, and endanger our political existence. Mercator justly states—" IF THIS COUNTRY PRODUCES ENOUGH TO SUPPLY HERSELF, ANY IMPORTATION, HOWEVER HEAVY THE DUTY MAY BE TO WHICH IT IS SUBJECTED, MUST HE IN THE WAY OF, AND THEREFORE INJURIOUS TO, THE HOME GROWER." This is the very fact, which will account for a glut of our markets. This is not brought forward with that candour which might have been expected from one who professes to enquire, with all that solicitude, which, according to his own account, the urgency of the ease de- manded. Amicus sets this acknowledged most injuri- ous' fact before the world— namely, that Importation has been invited when there was abundance in the Country. Amicus Patrice is not aware to how great an extent the Importation of all the productions of the earth not only has been, but is at this instant carried, to the ruinous depression of the funds of 44 THE MOST NUMEROUS AND VALUABLE CLASS of the MANUFACTURERS' CUSTOMERS." Amicus states only the immense importations in 1818 and 1819; whereas they are continued probably to this pre- sent time. The following is a copy of the weekly returns at the PORT OF LONDON ONLY the latter end of the year 1821. What then may be the importation taken ail together ? " Tbe . produce of the land before ttie depression amounted to 216 millions annually, and that of manufactures to 220 millions. Of the agricultural produce there was a reduction in value of MORE THAN ONE HALF in 1817." What then is the reduction now ?* Where will Shopkeepers go for customers to make up to them the loss of their profits Upon 108 millions which would have passed through their hands? Gentlemen and Farmers have not yet been quite forced down to the neces- sity of uniting manufactures to farming, as was thc case 40 years ago. But if an IMMEDIATE! EXERTION be not made by INCESSANT and UNI- VERSAL PETITIONS'}* to THE CROWN- and HOUSE OF LORDS ( for the Leader of the Commons [ if Mercator be he] has told us, nothing can be done by that House in this our exigence), the Landed Interest will be forced by dire necessity to make their lands produce all their supplies independent of shops, notwithstanding their long habits of elegant appearance. If choice should dispose them to check their impending ruin by an immedi- ate and universal return to that system of rigid frugality, Tradesmen may find it a long task to bring them out of it again, after smarting so severely, and being- calumniated for their former liberal conduct, which has since been denominated EXTRAVAGANCE. The remedy proposed by Mercator [ namely, a general reduction of cultivation] is 110 less than Depopulation to the Country— Ruin to the Stock- holder, J Landowner, Mortgagee, and every class of Britons— and Starving to the remaining Inhabitants of once Great Britain, if her name should hereafter remain in any other character than that of a con- quered Country.' INVESTIGATOR. October 22, 1822. P. S.— Credit rests upon PROPERTY and GOOD LAWS. Take away Property and there can be no Credit, and where* then will be Industry, Trade, Interest for Creditors, or Bread for the vast Population ? , SALT DUTIES,— By the 11th section of the Act of Parliament, passed last Session, for reducing the duty on salt, it is enacted, that warehouses maybe provided for the depositing of salt, upon the payment of the reduced duty of 2s. per bushel, between the 10th of October and the 5th of Janu- ary next, at which last period the new law takes effect. This provision is intended to prevent any inconvenience that might arise from the want of that necessary article in the interval between the operation of the old and new law, as dealers would naturally diminish their stock as much as possible previous to the 5th of January. EXTRAORDINARY CONVICTION.— At the Salisbury Sessions, on Tuesday last, Mary Pike was convicted of stealing some bricks, the property of Mrs, Maton. Mrs, P. 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 4 months1 imprisonment. The bricks were valued at three farthings, and tbe 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 charges upon these petty thefts amount to £ 275.— Southampton County Ck ronicle. For a number of years so many Government buildings have not been known to be erecting or under repair as at present. Windsor Castle, Cumberland Lodge in Windsor Park, Hampton Court, Buckingham House, and a new Mews at the back thereof, St. James's Palace, Pavilion, Brighton ; lievv Courts of Law, Royal Entrance House of Lords, and many other public buildings, which undoubtedly occasions many workmen to be employed, and will likewise engage them the whole or most of the winter. . THE AFRICAN INSTITUTION. * The exports from Britain, including her Colo- nies, arose gradually from about 9 to 20 millions, during the war. Since that time I think they have been slated at 40 millions. f Mercator allows that Petitions from Manu- facturers will be heard, however those of Agri- culturists are neglected. Are not the latter three parts, out of four of the Population? I think the census stated this in 1810, but I may be mistaken'. t The Stockholder, from the Stockjobbing price, may think his £ 10,000 Stock will bring him £ 8000, but Mr. Vansittart told ns, that if it were not for the Stock purchased by the Sinking Fund, there would scarcely be one real transfer made. The Stocks are sure to come down in price to at least au equality with that of Rents, if necessity will not wipe them qu. lt: ix\ vnr. Lund is at this time almost the ONLY security tfeu, aud tjiat is every day falling in value. Mr. Hume and the late LcvJ Mansfield considered both Stockholders and Land- owners insane not to see what the effect must be, and the miseries that must come upon the whole Country, from the folly of both Public Debtors and Creditors. Sir John Barnard was the advocate to reduce the Interest of the National Debt in 1719, to the great advantage of Trade. Anecdote of Dr. Smollett.— A lad, apprenticed to a chirurgeon, in Glasgow, and with whom Smollett had heen engaged in frolic 011 a winter's evening, was receiving a severe reprimand from his master for quitting the shop, and having alleged io his excuse that he had been hit by a snow- ball, and had gone out in pursuit of the person who had thrown it, was listening to the taunts of his master on the improbability of such a story. " How long," said the son of iEscujapius, With the confident air of one fearhss of contradiction, 44 might I stand here, and such a thing not happen to me?" when Smollett, , who stood behind the pillar of the shop door, and heard what passed, snatched up a snow- ball, and quickly delivered his playmate from the dilemma in which this question had placed him, by an answer equally prompt and conclusive. THE SILENT SPEAKER — As the brother of the proud Duke of Somerset, who then filled the Chair in the House of Commons, was returning from Bath, his carriage was interrupted on the road by the negligence aud audacity of a West Country waggoner. Indignant at the insult, he jumped out of his carriage and began to lay about him with his gold headed cane upon the head of the waggoner, who, in his turn, soon plied his long whalebone whip so sharply, that his Honour was glad to retreat, exclaiming— 44 Villain ! do you know who I am?"— 44 Noa," replied the. West Country Hogger: 44 who beest afler all?"— 44 Why, Sirrah, I am the Speaker !"— 44 Then why did'snt thee speak before?" AGRICULTURE.— Hereford Michaelmas Fair, on the 21st inst. exhibited a large and remarkably fine show of cattle; the sales, however, were lamentably dull, and at. prices from five to six pounds in twenty less than at last October fair. Fine oxen went at 2-| d. per lb.; fat cattle at a similar price; and for lean beasts there was no request. Sheep and Pigs were brought in great abundance, and sold at extremely low prices. The number of Horses was large; and a few fine ani- mals and roadsters went oil' tolerably well. The Hops were generally fine in quality; about 1000 pockets were brought, of which 875 were weighed, at from 45s. to 56s. except a few of the finest, which fetched £ 3.— Salt Butter went off briskly at from 9s. to 10s. per stone of 12lbs.—- Best Cheese sold from 50s. to 56s. ; two- meal from 40s. to 45s. — Onions from 2s. 6d. to 3s. per peck. At the October Meeting of the Herefordshire Agricultural Society, on the 19th inst. Mr. Timothy Bluck, of W'hetmore, obtained the premium for the best two- year old heifer.— The ploughing pre- miums were ably contended for by Mr. Lewis, of Kinmrisley, and Mr. Pearce, of . Stretton, each of whom had obtained premiums in this class on former occasions. Forty acres of land, in ihe parish of Har- niondsworth, which a few years since were let at £ 2 an acre, were recently re- let at 5s. an acre. A letter from one of the most productive coun- ties in Ireland says, " The general topic of conversation throughout the country is the strange contradiction which it presents— every one is distressed in the midst of plenty. Tiie farmers have no means to employ thc working population. The tithes, taxes, seed, ar. d labour, amount to more than the produce of the land will sell for, without leaving a penny for rent; so that the men of fortune, or owners of estates, must live on former savings or capital. Those blood- suckers, the middle- men, are totally ruined ; most of their undertenants are bankrupt, and running away with one or two years rent in arrear." Out of evil, perhaps, may come good ; and the ruin of the middle- men, who are geuerally supposed to have in a. great measure caused the distress which has now ifalleu so heavily upon themselves, may give rise to an improved system. DERBY MUSICAL FESTIVAL.— The total re- ceipts of the late Triennial Meeting were about £ 3600, and there will remain a balance, afler leductiug the expenses, of about £ 950 to be applied to the funds of the Infirmary. 1821, Oct. 8 to Oct. 13.

At a time when it is roundly asserted and generally supposed that there are no Importations of Corn, and the ports shut, behold the above FACTS ! Besides this, there is an immense influx of Cheese, Butter, Bacon, Eggs, & c. The last trifling article of Eggs was stated to produce to foreigners more than £ 50,000 in a year. The evils now deplored, were produced both to Manufacturers, Shopkeepers, and to the Agricul- tural branch, by the IMPORTATION of FOREIGN PROD ICE, and not by the TOO GREAT SUPPLY from onr O WN GROWTH : and according to Mercator, it was not only unjust towards tbe landed interest, hut ruin to every other class of Britons. Is it forgotten— tbat this depression came not from chance, or oversight? Was it not a regular plan that THE FARMERS must come down, and the Rents must be lowered?— No Corn Bill! Nay, does not Mereator tell us that if the Corn Bill of last year . had not been perfectly INEFFECTUAL for the pre- sent, und merely PROSPECTIVE, it would NOT HAVE BEEN SUFFERED TO PASS ! He lets us know that all the talk about Mr. Peel's Bill has only served to amuse the Public— or turned their attention from the true object, but that it had no influence on our affairs whatever. VVe are now arrived nearly ut the point to which the attention of your readers was attempted to be directed early in the year 1817 and downwards. Mercator and Amicus both shew that Home Trade vs the best trade, as to certainty, constancy, and profit, and it may be worth the enquiry of all, what the effects must already have been to Shopkeepers, ftom the declaration of Mr. C. Grant 111 1817 — THE ROAN TROTTING MATCH FOR 500 SO- VEREIGNS.— This match, upon which many hun- dreds were pending, took place on Thursday, over the Mile- and- half Range, Ashburn Park, Bedford shire, before a numerous field of anxious spoilsmen. The mare was bred in Lancashire, and the horse by Mr. B. Standish, and they were considered the fastest in England under 15 hands. The match was to trot against each other, and to start at the opposite ends. Each mile and a half was done as follows, with feather weight:— Whimsical Anecdote.-— A circumstance which, when related to us by a good mimic, excited our risibility in a high degree, and struck us v. s scarcely less ludicrous than the celebrated story of Monsieur Tonson, occurred some time ago nt a Circuit Court of Justiciary, and in the presence of a Judge whose peculiarities of temper and manner are more than compensated by his many amiable and excellent qualities. Their Lordships and suite had just met, and were proceeding to investigate rather an inter- esting case, when their deliberations were . inter- rupted by a knocking at the outer Court door. Again and again the shriil- tongued iVIacer ejacu- lated " Silence! silence there!" to little or ho purpose; when the Judge exclaimed, What's the meaning of all that noise? Macer, officers, what are you about, that you don't put an end to that constant shuffle- shuffling?" Officer, 44 It's a man, my Lord."— Judge, 44 A man! what man, Sir? Who, where is he, and what does he want?" Officer, 44 lie's at the outside, please your Lordship, and wants to get in." — Judge, 4> Well, keep him out, keep him out, I say, Sir."— 44 The officer bowed or nodded assent, and ihe business of the Court proceeded. By and by, how- ever, an individual possessing the right of entree, walked into the hall of justice, and 44 the man," watching his opportunity, slipped iu at the same time. By a levity and restlessness, however, by no means uncommon, he. had not been well in, till he wished to get out again. With this he began to jostle every body near him— a proceeding which not only created a new hubbub, but drew forth a fresh rebuke.— Judge, 44 What's all this now? Even if my ear were as sharp as that of Dionysius, and the room iu which I sit as well contrived as the cele- brated vault in which he kept his prisoners, it would be - impossible for me to hear one word that the witness is saving." Officer, 44 It's the man, my Lord."— Judge, 1,4 What! tbe same man?" OJficer, 14 The verra same!"— Judge, 44 Well, what does he want now ?" Officer, 44 He wants to get out, please your Lordship."— Judge, 44 Wants to get out! Then keep him in— keep him in, I say, Sir."— The obe- dient officer did as he was directed; but the perse- vering man was not to be so easily driven from bis purpose. Watching an opportunity, thetefore, and elbowing bis way to an open window, he mounted on what is called the sole, and appeared, contrary to ail rule, to be meditating his escape in that direction; but the vigilant officer again caught the Tartar, and, again interfering, a fresh tumult ensued. His Lord- ship appeared angry ( as well he might), and a third time exclaimed, 44 that's the matter now ? Is there to be 110 end to this?" Officer, k4 It's the man, my Lord."— 44 What! the, same man again? Shew me the fellow, and I'll man him."— The officer here pointed to a respectable enough looking indi- vidual, who, as he said, 44 had cruppen up ou the window sole, and wanted to get down again."— Judge, 44 Up on the window sole! Well, keep him up— keep him up, I say, Sir, if it should be to the day of judgment."

Mr. Abernethy, the Scots pedestrian, completed his match to go from London to Nottingham and back, making a circuitous route of 260 nnles, in four successive days. Towusend, the Pedestrian, on Monday after- noon, performed a surprising task at Sheffield, by gathering with his mouth 100 stones, each placed at the distance of one yard, and walking four miles backward, five forward, and running eight, making in the whole 23 miles, which he, performed io 3 hours and 56 minutes, being four minutes under the time specified. He gathered the 100 stones in 47 minutes, equal to a distance of nearly six miles.

In cases of accident by the clothes of females taking fire, throw a large quantity of vinegar over the clothes the instant the fire is extinguished, without taking any off, and continue to do so for an hour or two— this will lay some blisters, and prevent others rising— then the clothes may he safely taken off. If a blister break, it must be dressed with ointment used for burns ; but in general an immediate application of vinegar will prevent all bad consequences. Violently tearing off the clothes causes the tops of the blisters ( which rise immediately from scalding or burning) to be broken, and they become inveterate sores.— If blisters do not fall, lay cloths over then?, sleeped in vinegar, and wet them often. The immediate cure depends on the blisters not being broken: persons ignorant of this generally let ihe water out with the scissars— a ruinous error. If vinegar is not handy, throw water over the clothes, and continue to do so unlit vinegar can be procured. In the island of Borneo, the inhabitants know little of medicine; and however desperate the case of a patient is, bleeding is considered by them a circumstance of a mOst alarming nature. Captain Beckman, who was once under the necessity of submitting to the operation, says, " One day being indisposed, I ordered the surgeon to bleed me; Cay Deponattee, a native, with several others, being in the room, and strangers to the operation, were in great amazement to know what we were about, till at length the vein being opened, they saw the blood g* ush but; on this they were so frightened that they immediately ran out of the room, crying out 4 Oran, gela attee,' that is, the man's heart or mind is foolish: after which they told us, that we let out our very souls and lives willingly. To this I replied, that their diet being mean, and their drink only water, they had no occasion for bleeding, but that we, who drank so much wine and punch, and fed upon flesh, which rendered the blood hot and rich, were absolutely obliged to resort to that operation to prevent illness. Cay Deponattee replied, 4 I think that shows yon to be still greater fools in putting your- selves to such expensive charges, on purpose to receive pain for it.' This was certainly a very just observation, and fully evinced that, if they wanted faith in the utility of this expedient, they were not defective in natural understanding. THE LATE MRS. GARRICK.— By the death of Mrs. Garrick, the library of the British Museum will be further enriched hy the addition of her husband's valuable collection of old English plays, besides , which, the celebrated statue of Shakspeare, by Roubiliiae ( of which the one over the fire- place in tbe rotunda of Drury- lane Theatre is a cast), will grace the hall of that national establishment. The chair, too, made from Shakspeare's mulberry tree, will also, it is supposed, be there deposited. It is richly carved, and would, if put up to auction, fetch an enormous price; as would doubtless many other articles of vertu, as having once belonged to tbe 44 best living commentator" 011 the works of the Bard of Avon. Among these must not be forgotten four originals hy Hogarth, of the Election. Tbe fate of these species of saleable property, which were bequeathed to Mrs. Garrick during ber life, will shortly be decided by the hammer. The children of Mrs. Garrick, of the Haymarket Theatre, will also, it is said, come in for considerable legacies in conse- quence of tbe decease. The beautiful chateau and grounds at Hampton will also be brought to the hammer. The house is in a sad dilapidated and ruinous condition, and the offices and coach- houses contiguous in comparative decay. This was once a place of hospitable splen- dour. Indeed, so ambitious was Mr. Garrick of the character of hospitality, that he not only entertained his nohle and learned guests, but he afforded accom- modation to their carriages and servants as well as themselves ; he attached to his house nearly one dozen extra coach- houses, all of which remain to this day. The narrowness of Mrs. Garrick's income, and her exceedingly charitable disposition, were said to prevent her repairing them; she generally resided in the atlics; hut the greatest part of the grounds,; especially towards the Thames, are more picturesque and beautiful than they were originally. Mrs. Garrick, when young, was extremely beauti- ful, biit latterly she became masculine, and assumed masculine habits; she was to the end of her life much attached to horticulture, and even to the pruning of her own fruit trees. The writer of this remembers on one occasion, not many years back, whilst visiting her grounds at Hampton, perceiving an old person clothed in a large surtout on a ladder, cutting the trees and nailing them lo the wall. The. man who was his conductor desired he would not approach that person, as it was Mrs. Garrick, who wished to escape observation. The expenees of Mr. Garrick's funeral, one of the most splendid ever seen in this country, were, we believe, never paid. The undertaker was ruined by the job, and died a beggar. The acting executor, Mr. Albany Wallace, was always tardy in paying Garrick's debts. Mrs. Garrick has often been re- proached for her want of respect to tbe memory of her husband, in not erecting a monument to his fame in Westminster Abbey, which was afterwards done by Mr. Wallace. It was said, she had not the means, and, besides, she always thought Garrick belonged to the public. Mrs. Garrick was so conscious of her approaching dissolution that she ordered the sheets which were 011 tlie bed when Garriek died, and which were scrupulously preserved by her, to be aired and put upon her bed. Whilst the servant was doing this, the old lady expired in her chair. Drury- lane Theatre exhibits an unique appear- ance from having the fronts of two prominent private boxes closed— one belonging* to Mrs. Coutts, the other to Mrs. Garrick. For the honour of the Drama, and highly to the credit of the Sub- Committee of that Theatre, when it was let to Mr. Elliston, an especial clause was inserted in the lease, guaran- teeing to Mrs. Garrick for life, the uneontrouled possession of this box, without any consideration whatever. [ FROM A MORNING PAPER.] We have heard that in the character of the late Mrs. Garrick there was a singular mixture of par- simony and liberality. She has been known to give fifty pounds at one time to the poor at Hampton, and on the instant deny herself the common comforts of life. Her wine- cellar she has not opened for years together, and a dish of tea was the usual extent of 1 covered with them, her hospitality. She always stated herself to be poor, as an apology for the ruinous condition in which the house and offices at Hampton now are. To save fuel and secure herself from damp, a room in the attic | served her44 for parlour, for kitchen, and hall." She kept one female servant at Hampton, who resided with her many years ; and to compensate the poor woman ami a numerous family ( for her wages were small indeed), the house and grounds were shewn to visitors, unknown to the old Lady. The furniture of the house at Hampton is exactly as it was left by Garrick ; and, except tbe curious old china and the paintings, worth very little. The chairs, sofas, and chandeliers in the drawing room ( tbe fashion of the times in which Garrick lived), are unworthy a com- mon tavern of the present day. There are several portraits of Mrs. Garrick in different apartments, taken when young, hy which it would seem her ap- pearance was then extremely fascinating; but age sadly dilapidates the human countenance. Mrs. Garriek's greatest pride was ( when health would permit) in promenading her picturesque grounds, and explaining with enthusiastic delight the age and date of each tall tree, planted by herself and Mr. Garriek.— We believe there is not another instance of a person living to witness so many noble trees grow from saplings to complete maturity in the life- time of. the proprietor and occupant. During- the summer months she would indulge in an occasional walk on the lawn and terrace on the banks of the Thames, at the end of which Garrick built the mau- soleum for the statue of Shakspeare, and the cele- brated chair; here Mrs. Garriek would sip her tea, and, in the society of one female or so, recount the pleasures she enjoyed in the same place, in the society and conversation of her husband, and their noble and learned guests. The four celebrated pictures, Scenes froin the Brentford Election, and painted by Hogarth, used to be placed in the dining- room at Hampton. They were exhibited, amongst other paintings by Hogarth, at the British Institution a few seasons ago, and since tbat time have been deposited in the house at the Adelphi. There are many other very valuable pictures, painted by Zoffany, and all the distinguished artists of the time, amounting in the whole to nearly 250. These by Mr. Garrick's will are now to he sold, and they will no doubt produce an enormous sum of money. Garrick cordially loved his wife, but he was anxious, that after his death she should not only continue a widow, hut remain in this country. His will contains many severe restrictions on these points. In case she married or went abroad, she was not only to be deprived of one- third of her in- come, but entirely of tbe houses and furniture both at Hampton and 011 the Adelphi- terrace. The entire property consists of the mansion, grounds, furniture, library, and various tenements at Hampton, and the house, furniture, and library on the Adelphi- terrace. Notwithstanding Mrs. Garrick's constant complaint about her poverty, and the narrowness and inade- quacy of her income, we understand 6he has left nearly seventy thousand pounds behind her. She was a rigid Roman Catholic, and when at Hampton, if health and the weather permitted, used to attend the chapel at Isleworth on a Sunday This venerable lady, it is said, visited Westminster Abbey about a month ago, J and addressing the clergyman who attended her, she said, 4 I suppose there is not room enough for me to be laid by the side of my dear David?" The clergyman assured her that there would be room enough. She then said with an air of pleasantry— 44 I wish to know, not that I think I am likely soon to require it, for I am yet a mere girl, but only for the satisfaction of my feelings against the time when I must submit to the will of Heaven." This noble institution has just published its six- teenth report. It is unusually large, and abounds in papers and documents of great curiosity and in- terest. The whole line of Western Africa, from the river Senegal to Benguela, has, during the last year, swarmed with slave vessels, and an active and in- creasing, slave trade has also been carried 011 upon the eastern shores of tbat continent, particularly from the island of Zanzebar. The chief seat of thiV detestable traffic ou the west coast may be consi- dered to be the rivers Bonny and Calabar. It was ascertained on good authority, by Captain Leeke, of his Majesty's ship Myrmidon, that from July, 1820, to October, 1821, an interval of about fifteen months, 100 slave ships had entered the former river, and that 162 had entered the latter, for the CAPE OF GOOD Ho PI?.— Extract of a letter from Cape Town, dated August 5 : " In consequence of very . heavy fains, the country, within 150 miles of'Cape Town, is quite deluged, and rendered impassable. The seed, which has been sown for the next harvest, is entirely washed away, and, what makes it worse, there will be no. corn to spare to replace it. At the same time, the settlers upon the frontiers have not had a drop of rain, iu consequence of which they have not been able to plough; therefore the harvest, should it escape the rust, will be very late, and a great scarcity is expected before that time • If you can get any American b . tided flour, iu casks, in the London Docks, I think it would be preferable to wheat, and attended with less ex- pense, as it could be easily shipped.

Mylins, having been informed of the transaction, had instituted judicial proceedings against her ; bnt Ibe judges whose office it was to try the cause, having themselves participated in the crime by purchasing some of her slaves, concurred in acquit- ting her. It appears from the papers found on hoard Le Sncces, that 248 slaves, which she landed in tbe Isle of Bourbon in her first voyage, cost only 0944 dollars; and that the proceeds uf the sale of these staves amounted to 29,564 dollars.

Her father was so incensed, that declaring tbe crime of slave- trading by American ships, or American subjects, lo be piracy ; and, as such, affixing to it the punishment of death. A hope was expressed iu the last Report, that Governor Farquhar would succeed in making ar- rangements with Radanta, King of Madagascar, for putting an end to the slave trade, which bad so long wasted that tine and fertile island. This hope has been realised. In the terms of tbe treaty which has been concluded, one of the conditions was, tbat twenty Madagascar youths should be laken under the care of the British Government ; and lhat ti n of them should be placed al the Isle of France, there to acquire tbe knowledge of certain useful arts, and that the other ten should be sent to England for the same purpose. Tbis condition has been fulfilled ; ten youths are now in a course of Instruction at the Isle of France ; and nine others accompanied by Priuce Rataffe, a near rela- lion of King Radama, come to England about a year ago. Prince Kataft'e, after a few months, returned lo Madagascar, leaving his companions to pursue their education.

The oak was at least from magistrate and guards to secure her.

One day last week as two old women were collecting fuel on Jevmgton Hill, Sussex, they observed at no great distance from them a bird of uncommon size, endeavouring to make its escape by flight, which, from some apparent hurt that it had received, it was unable to effect, and the women in consequence speedily overtook their game, when a desperate conflict ensued, and it was not until it had been killed hy the prongs with which they were armed tbat the object of their pursuits could be secured. It proved to be the Pelicanus bassanus of Linnaeus, Gaunet, or Solan Goose, a bird rarely met upon our coast; this species is, however, very common in the Hebrides, and other solitary rocky isles of North Britain.
