The Territory of Poyais, situated on the mountainous side of the Iiay of Honduras, is distinguished by a climate which agrees admirably with the constitution of Europeans, and, by a rich and fertile soil, producing in abundance the necessaries of life almost without labour; the face of the country is beautifully varied by hill and valley, the forests contain exceedingly valu able timber, such as mahogany, cedar, rose- wood, & c. horses and black cattle are plentiful, and the savannahs or plains are capable of supporting immense herds. Rivers and streams of water are numerous, gold is found in several of them, and ther are likewise gold mines in the Territory. An elegant historian ( Bryan Edwards) in a very particular Memoir, specially state that " every variety of animal and vegetable nature for use or beauty, for food or luxury, has been most liberally bestowed on till a country ;" and that with respect to food, the inhabitants *' seem almost to be exempted from the curse entailed on our first parents !"

HONORARY MEMBER OFTHE PERTH ANTIQUARIAN CAUTION TO PERFUMERS AXD MEDICINE VENDERS. APHINCE, the original PROPRIETOR of the • RUSSIA OIL, is constantly receiving information that impostorsare travelling the country with countei feit Russia Oil, and, to deceive shopkeepers* 1 and others, have, made the covers of their counterfeits exactly like Prince's ; and even printed on the covers, " Prince's Russia Oil," and copy Mr. Prince's affidavit, made before the Lord Mayor of London, and to deceive Perfumers, Medicine Venders, and others in the country, say they are Partners or Travellers of Mr. Prince -. he begs to caution Perfumers and Medicine Venders against purchasing Russia Oil from the impostor who travels the country, Mr. Prince having neither Partner or Traveller, re. commends Perfumers. Medicine Venders, and others in the country, to have the Russia Oil from a respectable Wholesale Perfumeror Medicine Vender whom they deal with in London ; they will be certain of not being - deceived, as the principal Wholesale Perfumers and Medicine Venders in London are Agents for selling Prince's celebrated Russia Oil. Shopkeepers ought to be particularly ou their guard not to buy counterfeit Russia Oil, as Mr. Prince has had the opinion of Counsel, who informs him that if any one sells Russia Oil, with'* Prince" on the wrapper, that is not Prince's, subject themselves to an Injunction from the Court of Chancery, the same as was granted to Day and Martin. In short, PRINCE'S CELEBRATED RUSSIA OIL is so improved with ail extra valuable ingredient, through which it has made the Russia Oil the greatest nourisher and preserve to the hair in the uni- verse,- will make it grow thick and long, and prevent its fall- in" off or ever turning grey; and is such a nourisher to tbe roots ut the hair, that if it even has began to turn grey, will restore it a" ain to its natural colour, and, if used often, it will never turn grey again, and is sure to clear the scurf, from infancy to old age, and will always keep the head and hair clean and beautiful. Gentlemen who have lost their hair, and have the leastsign of rootsof hair remaining, by using regularly. for a few months, Prince's Improved Russia Oil, with the extra valu- able ingredient, will be sure to restore it, and produce a fine bead of hair, which hundreds have experienced. Even Medical Gentlemen have published, in the Gazette of Health, that Prince's Russia Oil is superior to any Oil for the hair, and will du in cases of baldness and Weak hair, what can possibly be done. Ladies will find Prince's Russia Oil preferable to any other Oil for dressing their own or false hair; as it gives it a natural gloss, softens and curls it. Gentlemen wearing powder ought to use it instead of pomatum : it pro- motes eyebrows, whiskers, tic. and through the extra ingredi- ent, it will now always keep pleasant in all climates. Proved by affidavit, the 24th of November 1814, before the Lord Mayor of London, that A. Prince is the Original Pro- prietor in the Universe of the Russia Oil; and therefore if any Perfumer, Medicine Vender, Hair Dresser, or any one else, sell Russia Oil, that is not Prince's, they are impostors, as they sell counterfeits to their customers. Ask for Prince's Improved Russia Oil, and observe Prince on the wrapper and seals of each bottle; without, it is not ge- nuine, and cannot answer the purpose. The ounce bottle 5s. or a large bottle, containing five ounces 11. which is a saving ; or six large for 51. which is yet a greater saving. Sold bv the sole Proprietor, A. Prince, No 9, Poland- street, Oxford- street, near the Pantheon, Loudon ; and by most principal Perfumers and Medicine Venders. l. adfes and Gentlemen will be particular, as impostors have made the covers of the counterfeit Rdssi. i Oil so inueh like the Genuine, andeven imitated the Original Proprietor's Name, and also copied the Affidavit of the Original Proprietor, made before the Lord Mayor; therefore purchasers should be cautious, and have it of the Proprietor, or of a respectable Vender. It is no wonder that Ladies and Gentlemen have complain- ed of the RUSSIA Orr^ JIS the Proprietor bas been informed, where one Bottle of the gennine is said ill Scotland, One Hun- dred lit, tiles of coulerfei't aie sold. TUB VISITATION. Weel, what will the Members o' tbe Toon Cooncil say, gin they hear o' this. I declare it wad he a sair hair in my neck." Baillie Nicot Jarvie. THE annual Visitation of tbe Schools by the Magistrates, is a circumstance which, old as I am, never fails to interest me. It calls to my remembrance the days of youth, when life was new, ami when each successive day, and each successive season, conjured up new sources of enjoyment. However powerfully the pleasures of hope may affect the mind of a poet, they can be felt by the generality of mankind only in childhood or early youth, but the pleasures of memory are of a much less fleeting nature. In the decline of life the old man looks back upon his childish sports and youthful amusements with a satisfac- tion which no words can describe. He sees the enjoyments of his youth, wilhout feeling the petty vexations with which they may have been accompanied, and the sentiment is only render- ed more tender and affecting, by the recollection of the many changes which time has produced. Like a Landscape illumi- nated by the last gentle rays of the setting sun, the remem- brance of youthful joys is softened in its harsher features by the lapse of time, and if the prospect should be be< lewed. by a falling tear, it is only rendered the more soothing and interest- ing. How many young men have wished that the days of their school drudgery were over, that they might commence a career in life which they had no doubt would lead to riches, honour, and renown ; and how few have had their golden dreams ful- filled ! Tbe snd realities of life have soon dissipated the illu- sion, and he who expected perhaps soon to drive in his own chariot, has found that he would have tbe greatest difficulty to earn a scanty subsistence. As years have crept on, the desire to draw aside the curtain of futurity has gradually decreased, lest it should unveil a series of sorrows and disappointment; hut the lapse of years makes the oid man recur with the inoie intense pleasure to bis boyish days, and while his mind is oc- cupied with the remembrance of them, he speaks, and look', and acts, as if he were young again. To gratify those feelings so cheering to old age, I have been induced to send you an article on the VISITATION. An octo- genarian alone can appreciate the sensations which I feel, when recurring to this subject. I reflect on the anxiety with which the weeks and days were counted till this great occasion should arrive— the anticipations of what would then occur and the fears that the business might not go on smoothly.— Then, when the important morning came, there was the double purification of soap ami water— the shirt ruffles laid out with perplexing care— and the charge to go straight to school, taking due care not to get the white stockings dirtied by the way. The Master, diessed in his best snuff- coloured coat, and his wig combed as smooth as a seal skin, walks up and down the floor with a double portion of magisterial gravity in his countenance. A stillness much unlike the usual bustle and murmur, pervades the School Room— every time that the door opens all. eyes arc turned towards it, till at length the proper officer appears, dressed in his holiday uniform, and com- municates the intelligence, that Monseigneur vicnt. " The veesitors have just left Mr. ' s School, and will be here in a few minutes"— is announced in an intense official whisper, which is distinctly heard by the whole school. Every heart beats quick till the appearance of the important personages ex- pected. When arrived, and while the compliments are pass- ing, the awe struck scholars take each a cursory look of the mind to plead in extenuation of his faulty that " rte^ er before stood, he in such a presence;" but he was shortly sifter heaf4to whisper to his neighbour, that the gentleman need nOx-' nave been in sic a passion— there's aulder and greater men than irfe, sometimes blunder their speeches.'* I trust these remarks will not be altogether thrown away. They may prevent visitors in time to come from pursuing a course which is foreign to their duty. Those gei^ temen ought to express- their satisfaction or dissatisfaction only to the Teacher, who is alone entitled tf> censure hi^ scholars. We never heard of a Genoraly at a Review., abusing a private sol- dier because his buttons were not properly cleaned, or because his- toes were not placed at the proper angle, All his. remarks are made to the commanding <> d> cer ot the r€^ iri> etYf, through whom alone they can. be communicated to tbfc troops. f " I would aho fain hope, that what I have said may not give an£ great offence. There- are many members of the honourable body- to which 1 have alluded, who f> ave not so » mfch experi- ence. of the world as 1 hatfe. and who may not think thenw selves too wise to learn.- It is, moreover, Certain, that se- veral of them are little qualified to take a part in the examina- tions at some of the schools which they vi- sit. Even in this respect, however, we may be justified in hoping, that the pro,- gress of time will make Changes for the better. There is an old story of a BaiUie having b « * d", at a visitation, a Latin Book- put into his hands', which he ® ery gravely continued to hoM With the * ror » g towards him ; but according to the dictates of that judgment and discrimination he has been graciously pleased to confer upon us.

Whether they are of more rare occurrence since the Bankruptcy ofthe Burgh obliged its governors to economise, I cannot positively say ; hut 1 am afraid, they are still to be seen iu a greater or less degree; In my younger days, a circumstance took place at the Grammar School, which gave a severe check to partiality of this nature. It was customary at that. time, as it is now, todistri- hute a few Books among the best Scholars, as honourable tes timonials of their merit. On an occasion of this kind, one of the best Scholars in the School, after the highest commenda- tions of his ingenuity, was preseuted with a Book, value about Eighteen Pence ; and the next moment he saw put into the hands of another ' oov, more connected with the visitors, one worth Five Shillings. Knowing how much the favourite was. inferior to himself in point of genius, the first took out his pen- knife, cut his book in two, and threw it at the gentleman from whose hand he had received it.* This circumstance excited a consi- derable sensation at the time, and was considered one of die reasons for which the practice of distributing Books Was for several years discontinued It was, however, resumed umhr better auspices and the distribution is now conducted, I be- lieve, with sufficient impartiality. I have been informed that, of late years, the Visitors have been carrying on matters in such a way as to make the Scholars look upou their appearance as a visitation indeed. They have in some cases taken the examinations into their own hands, and have even assumed the Schoqlmasur's prerogative, of censur- ing suc[ i of his pupils as happened to make any mistake in their presence. Now, although those gentlemen ought no doubt " to be a terror to evil doers aud a praise and encouragement to such as do well," yet it appears to me, that such an assump- tion is something of a stretch of their authority. When a mail puis his son under the charge of a Schoolmaster, he does not expect that the Schoolmaster's authority shall be delegated into other hands, nor does he intend that a Bench of Magistrates shall pass senience 011 the boys' mi- takes. False syntax, or errors ill orthography and pronunciation, are luckily no subjects of judicial investigation. If this were the case, I am afraid it would sometimes be M change places, and handy- dandy, which is the ju. tice, which is the thief."

The boy . made a trifling mistake in the pronunciation of a w ord, which, in the opinion of most people, would have been sufficiently corrected if the visitor had simply repeated the word alter biui.

CHRONICLE. Slit, I was not at. the General Meeting of the Inhabitants, the other day, regarding an additional supply of water ; but, from what I can leitrfi, it was pre. ty broadly hinted ihat an addi- tional assessment of 4 I. per pound rent would be required to carry the proposed object into efluct. And for whose benefit'! Do they suppose that the- inhabitants of Aberdeen, are, mad ? — Or that, after being gulled with New Street and IIarbour SIM. culations, ( th'; result of which lire the best proofs of their sound- ness aud propriety) the Inhabitants are to allow the same gnllers to double- gull them, and to . impose an assessment for water, when really'iio additional water is required by the persons who would have to pay for it ? An additional assessment for water, t„ supply whom ? A set of Nabobs who disdain to live in a smoky town, and who do not pay a . Shilling of Police Assessment. — An assessment for such water, to. be levied cbieliy froia whom ? From shopkeepers paying bi- li rents, and resting perfectly as- sured that they will be rated at high rents, without feeling any present want of water, or any inclination to procure more.— Let those Gentlemen who are of opinion that they are so much in want of w ater, and that the Burn of Cults is so jecy valu- able, and tvTlhsf so Worthy of the enormous T'X|> EIU'e of bring- ing it to Aberdeen, put their bands in their own pockets an t bring the supply to the tuwn at their own expense. Let them sell ilieir superfluity to the Inhabitan s of Abetdeen, and, bad as times are, so necessary an article for life uswater ( ifujint': i, be it always remembered) will never fail to'prod nee a remu- nerating price. Money is plenty, and interest low. If die speculation is a good one for the public, it is more so for monied men, and these gentlemen should, on no account, be depriv- ed of their anticipated benefits from it. The fact, however, obviously is, that the new Town wants tu benefit themselves at the expence of the old— to increase the value ofthe New at the permanent expense of tiie Old ; and if the proprietors and eccupiers of the latter submit to any proposition so preposterous aud unjust, they deserve to suffer all the consequences which mayeti. stie froui theirinattentiorv to their own manifest interests. Where is all this want of water which has been clamoured about ? Where is the increase of popttlalion within the ran^ e of the public wells ? It will be found, that there, the popu- lation has not materially, if at all increased. Was there any such former outcry aboot want of water raised ? If there was any such want, in ordinary seasons, ( which I deny) is. nut the New Reservoir, in ordinary seasons, calculated tn a great de- gree to remove it ? Those who calculated on a sur. e- sion of mild winters such as we have had. and which have been the sole caust- sof a scarcity of water, may tie, n al probability, deceived.

Thoe who w. cit waler must bl'ing it ; but IGUCii ME Siu. PAUPERISM— DR. CHALMERS. The ';> v Or. Chalmers, of Glasgow, who has for several vears assiduously ( h voted his attention to tiie subject of pau- perism . o d the poor laws, and who has published some works containing the result both of his speculations and experience, visited I, eeds or. Thursday week, io the course of an exten- sive tour which he is now making through England, in order to collect authentic information on the state of English pau- perism. Having signified tfo the Mayor his wish to meet the parish officers of the town, n meeting was convened and held accordingly. at the Court House, at u liich nearly all the parish officers ami many members of 1 lie corporation attended. l) r. t" ha'lmers briefly stated his object in desiring this interview, which was to gain such information as might enable him to judge of the practicability of reforming the poor laws and re- ducing pauperism in England. He had met with one parish, where tile management of the poor was so good, that in a po- tt' Anion or ROD pe pie. only £' 2\ per annum was expended in the* iHei" of paupers. In those parts of Scotland where the English system < f compulsory relief had not lieen introduced, the poet were thrown more on their own resources ; by which he meant not only on their own economy and providential habits, but also on the kindness of their relations, for support in time of exigency. In the manufacturing city of Glasgow, he considered that they were about half as far gone in pau- perism as at Manchester. When he removed from his former parish to that city, he found the parish of St. John's, in which he was then situated, like the other parishes of Glasgow ; but he formed the design of carrying it back to the old state, i. o. doing aw. iv with the English system of parochial relief. His success had tieen greater than be could possibly have expected : the system < f p » i| » eris( n had been in a great measure done away, and the people were now better off' than they bad been twfiwv. He came hither as a learner ; his object was fti col- lect authentic particulars concerning the state of pauperism in England -, and he w as greatly obliged to the Mayor for having brought him into contact with gentlemen so well able to give tic information he was ill want of. Dr. Chalmers then pro- ceeded to put a series of questions, calculated to educe the in- formation which he desired concerning the system of parochial management, the amount of poor- rate, the treatment of Irish and Scotch paupers, & c. to which he generally received ready and specific answers. When he made the inquiry, whether the system of parochial relief in that town had tended to lower the iudejKMulvnt spirit of the ptior, and render the.- i less reluctant to applv for parish aid. he received a general and decisive answer in the ' affirmative. He asked whether the act, passed a few years ago, empowering parishes to remove Irish paupers who applied for relief, bad been carried into effect in that town ; and was informed that it had at the time been acted upon, that some removals had taken place, and that the effect was the cessation of applications for relief from the Irish, who did not however in any considerable numbers leave the town, but who, thrown upon their ow n resources, continued to support them- selves without parochial assistance, and seemed to be as com- fortable now as before. This information the Doctor seemed to prize ; and he related the extraordinary fact, that in Man- chester ( according to the information he had received there), before the act empowering the removal of tfie Irish passed, more than one- third ofthe paupersin that town were Irish; that the law having been acted upon, they ceased to apply for relief, hut did < x> t remove from the town, and yet that they were now in as much apparent comfort as when they received so much of the town's money. Being requestedibe Mr. Dobson to state the object which he had in view in making his inquiries, l) r. Chalmers staled, that his object was to obtain as much accurate information as pos. sibleconcerning the state of the poor in England, with a view to discover whether English paupeiism might be reduced in the same manner as Scotch pauperism. He stated that be had Already published on this subject, and had now arrived at that point in his works, when accurate information concerning the English poor became necessary to him. He had been speculat- ing a good deal on the subject of pauperism, anil had coropar- o. fits state in those parts of Scotland where the English system had been introduced, with its state in the parts which adhered to the old Scotch mode. He professed himself not yet suffi- ciently acquainted with the facts of English parish affairs, to give an opinion upon the subject. But he mi ntioned the plan he had pursued with the parish of St. John's, Glasgow, where the poor had been supported from two sources— voluntary con- tributions al the church doors, and an assessment upon the in- habitants. He told the magistrates, that if they would grant him the use of the voluntary contributions, he would r. ot send another new case of pauperism to them. This arrangement was made; the assessment was applied to the old cases only, and diminised as the old paupers died off. He divided the parish into a number of small districts, and appointed his dea- cons to be guardians ofthe poor; they examined minutely into every case which came before them, and applied relief, where necessary, wilh economy and discretion. By this means a very large diminution, beyond his most sanguine calculations, had been effected in the amount of relief distributed, and the pauperism ofthe parish was now upheld by voluntary contri- butions. Dr. Chalmers declared, that he should be sorry if Parliament were to pass such au act, as would be followed up by an immediate movement throughout the country, or would cause any violent fermentation : his present idea was, that it would be advisable to pass an act, allow ing any parish to alter its mode of giving relief, and to adopt the Scotch system, thus ^ making experiments of its efficacy; and he thought it would be better that the trial should be first made by the small agricul- tural parishes, and the amelioration of the present system be general. He mentioned ( lie striking fact, that in one of the suburbs of Glasgow, situated on the other side of the river, where the system of compulsory relief had not been adopted, I.. 350 was found sufficient to maintain the poor of a population of 2:>. 000. He could only account for this by supposing, that w ben the poor ceased to have any dependence on a public fund for their support, they found resources within themselves, that their habits became more economical and piudenfial, that they saved something in youth and middle life as a competoncy for old age, aod that indigent parents were sometimes support- ed by their children. He saw nothing in English human na- Inre materially different from Scotch human nature ; and, though he was not yet sufficiently well informed to hazard a de- cisive opinion, he had hopes that the system of pauperism in England admitted of effective reform. member of the league, it is almost inevitable that lie should at length acquire the name, character, and influ- ence of its head. The Emperor of Russia alone, of all the Allied So- reigns, combines these two essential conditions of supre- macy ; and this not so much on account of the greater number as of the greater barbaritv of his subjects. Para- doxical or sarcastic as this mav appear, it is nevertheless a truth of whichevervmindwill. on a moment's reflection, he convinced. The dangers to which this league is avowedly opposed, are such as existing authority has to dread from the approved civilization and progressive " intelligence of nations. From this dread Russia, as a separate power, must be, of all others, the most exempt. Knowledge has yet shot scarcely one ray of light upon the barbarous hordes which own Alexander as their chief. His sub- jects and his troops will be long ere they begin to specu- late on forms of government, or to dream that the peo- ple's good is the only legitimate foundation of authority. No foreign forces will be invited into his states to main- tain tranquillity amongst his subjects. As he has nothing to dread from the spirit of innovation at home, he alone wields an instrument fit to be depended on for its sup- pression abroad. The Cossac, as he marches or fights his way from the banks of the Don to the banks ofthe Seine or of the Tagtts, will not he troubled by abstract reveries as to the merit or demerit . of the cause which sets him iu motion— he will rejoice in the pleasures of a climate becoming more genial, of luxuries before un- known, becoming more abundant at every stage of his progress. Your Cossac is the onlv fountain of honour and of power I Whilst the Holy Alliance exists, he confers upon his master the right of being considered in- comparably the greatest monarch in the world I— the patron rather than the partner of a league of Kings I — protector of the Sovereigns of the earth !— Alexander judged rightly not to proceed too hastily against the Turks! LIP. EL. HOLY ALLIANCE. The project of establishing an universal Monarchy in Europe has sprung up at different periods in the ambitious minds of individual Sovereigns; attempts have been made to earrv this project into effect; these attempts have con- stantly failed, and even enlightened mind has rejoiced at their failure. If we can suppose the possibility of this alliance of Kings being permanent, will not a state of fhlnos nearly approaching in character to an universal Monarchy have been iu effect established ? Europe will have become one federal State, and her different Sove- rent Sovereigns, no longer independent, will have dwind- led into the Lieutenants of a confederacy. Every year added to the duration of this league, and every fresh en- terprise against freedom in which it may embark, will render this degraded character of Lieutenants more fixed and indelible ; for the feelings of loyalty in the minds of their subjects being gradually extinguished, they will severely feel themselves more and more dependant upon the federation, as the sole remaining guarantee of their sway. But equality of power and authority amongst the different members of a league like this is obviously impos- sible, and, indeed, it can scarcely fail to happen, that sooner or latter some one member of this alliance should acquire a predominant influence in its councils, and enjoy the power, and even the title of its head. Whenever this shall arrive, and if the Holy Alliance is to be per- manent, arrive it must, Europe is one Monarchy, and the splendid vision of Charles V. and Louis XIV. are substantially realized. Thus all these royal conspira- tors against freedom, excepting the distinguished one, will experience the appropriate punishment of their baseness and folly in the degradation of their respective • thrones. We cannot here refrain from the anxious inquiry, to which ofthe Allied Sovereigns the pre- eminence would naturally belong ? Unhappily the answer to this inquiry does not demand any very laborious or difficult investiga- tion. In any combination of men formed for the pur- pose of mutually affording assistance to each other in any ^ iveri contingency, it is obvious that that individual must enjoy the greatest consideration whose power to lend as- sistance is the greatest, and who is the least likely from his circumstances ever to be iu the necessity of demand., it. If the league of European Sovereigns be in effect a compact, bv which they are mutually pledged to become borrowers or lenders of military force, as the interest or wishes of existing authority may from time totime require, if cannot, I think, be doubted that he must possess a gra- dually increasing ascendancy, who has the most ample, tr. eims to lend, and the least occasion to borrow. If tjn. se two advautages cout'ur in favour of any individual COURT OF KING'S BENCH, Oct. 21. Middlesex Sittings before the Lord Chief Justice and Special Juries. THE KING V. THOMAS DOLBY. This was an indictment against the defendant for publishing a libel with intent to bring into contempt and disgrace the King, the Constitution, the Government, and the Laws of the King- dom. The libellous matter set tint in the indictment was con- tained in a work, entitled, 41 A Political Dictionary, or Pocket Companion, chiefly designed for the use of Members of Par- liament, Whigs, Tories, Loyalists, Magistrates, Clergymen, Half- pay Officers, Worshipful Aldermen, and Reviewers, being an Illustration and Commentary on all Words, Phrase1, and Proper Names in the Vocabulary of Corruption." The indictment was preferred at the instance of " the Constitutional Association." Mr. Gurney and Mr. Tindal were for the prosecution, and . Mr. Scarlett ami J. Evans, for the defence. It will be recollected, that at the Sittings after Hilary Term, this case was called on for trial hy a Special Jury, and postponed on account of some informalities. When the trial was now callcd on, nine Special Jurymen only appeared, and a Tales being prayed on the part of the Cfown, Mr." Scarlett and Mr. Evans took two objections to jury process, v^ hicli were overruled by the Court, aud the trial proceeded. The Jury w- as sworn, being composed of eight special and four talesmen, summoned specially by letter for this trial, by the Coroners, Messrs. Stirling and Unwin, who were now in attendance upon the Court. Mr. Gurney staled the C3se for the prosecution, which be prefaced bv observing, that this was an indictment found by a Grand Jury of the County of Middlesex, against the defend- ant for a seditious libel contained in the book which he held ill his hand, which, if it was not seditious, he did not know of any publication, however gross, which deserved that charac- ter. The Learned Counsel then proceeded to point out to the attention of the Jury the libelloue passages which had been se- lected from the " Political Dictionary" for prosecution ; amongst which were the following -.— " COMMON LAW— Judge Law ; the terra- incognita of Lawy- ers, any thing the Judge pleases ; for example, the fining of Mr. Davison three times in the midst of his defence, or Mr. Thistlcwood for publishing Tbistlewood's Trial. Mem. Chief Justice Pemberton used 11 boast he had made more law ( com- mon law) in his time than the King and both Houses of Par- liament, Some of the present Judges appear inclined to follow his example." " CONSTITUTION ( in C mi licit and STATK) ; religion without piety, law without reason, representatives without constituents, aiistocracy without talents, a king without authority, and a people without subsistence " " KING'S SPEECH. — A few insipid, ungrammatical subs- tances recited by him to his Parliament, and for which Hum receives a million a- year ; usually announcing just and ne- cessary wats, the improvement of the revenue, the flourishing state of commerce and agriculture, a seditious and blasphemous people, all which is seldom perceived by Hum and his Minis- ters Mem. As the Royal Speech grows every year more short and inane, it may be presumed that in time it will go entirely out of fashion, and Parliament be assembled and prorogued without such an unmeaning formality. The people would : not regret the loss of Hum's speech, provided the inilliou a- i year remained in their pockets." " MEETING OF PARLIAMENT.— A sign of most ominous im- port, portending famine, dungeons, banishment, and slavery. In other words, assembling one thousand individuals from all parts of the empire, under pretext of devising measures for the national benefit, but in reality to augment public miseries, or procure for themselves or relatives a larger share of the public spoil." " PARLIAMENT.— An empty sound, a hoax, an imposture. Formerly the word implied wisdom, integrity, and liberty ; a check upon arbitrary power, the bulwark of popular freedom ; now it means the sanctuary of error, prejudice, and venality, a cloak for Ministerial turpitude, a passive instrument of Royal caprice and official iipbecilitv." " ST. STEPHEN'S CHAPEL.— Said to be a house of ill fame in Westminster, frequented chiefly by night brawlers, quacks, and other suspicious and disreputable characters." These were the principal passages selected for prosecution, and the Learned Counsel, in reciting them to the Jury, com- mented upon their obvious tendency to bring the King, the Constitution, the Government, and the Laws of the kingdom iinto hatred and contempt. If such libels were tolerated, the libertv of the press would be a curse to the country. Even that liberty ( to which there was no warmer friend than himself) would sink under such licentiousness. Horatio Orton, a clerk in the employment ofthe Constitu- tional Association, proved that he purchased the work in ques- tion of the defendant himself at his shop, No. 299, Strand.— The defendant appeared to sell all manner of pamphlets. Cross- examined by Mr. Scarlett.— Witness asked for the work. He had known of it before. He had not read it before. He purchased it by the directions of the Committee, as tlleir j servant. Did not receive any thing for thejui. He had a j a yearly salary. For the satisfaction of the public he wished to let them know what he received— he received -£ 80 a- year, and had no other occupation. I'he libellous passages in the publication were then read in evidence, and the case for the prosecution closed. Mr. Scarlett then proceeded to address the Jury on behalf of the defendant, in all able and eloquent speech. If the work indicted was of such an abominable and atrocious tendency as had been represented on the part of the prosecution, it was sur- prising that his Majesty's Attorney- General should have let it repose so long upon the shelves of the defendant ; at least, it vvas difficult to assign an adequate reason why the protection of Ilie King, the Constitution, and the laws ofthe country, should be consigned to the supcrintendance of such persons as Mr. Assistant Honorary Secretary Murray and Mr. Ortoti. If every satire or criticism upon the institutions of society was to be considered as libellous, the most eminent authors that ever adorned the language of the country might he subjected to the lash of the law. The writings of Dean Swift, the courtly Lord Chestei field, and even the Psalms of David, might fall within the range of prosecution. The whole of " Gulliver's Travels" was a satire upon the institutions of society ; but did it therefore follow that Dean Swift intended to destroy those institutions ? In short, there was no work which might not be construed into a libel. No history that ever met the public eye was free from libels, it was true, that to libel the dead was an offence, according to the law of this country, on ac- count of the injury such an offence was calculated to inflict upon the living. Upon this principle it might be libellous to tell truth of Henry the Eighth, or any despotic monarch, who had attempted to trample upon the liberties of the people, and the historian of his actions might be brought to account by his successors, because ofthe odium thereby supposed to be brought upon the kingly character. Looking through all the passages ofthe defendant's publication which had been selected for pro- secution, they might fairly be considered as falling within the province of legitimate satire, and as tending- only ( in strong language it was true) to scourge the vices of the age — to point out to scorn the errors and follies incident to all human insti- tutions, but not to destroy them. The Lord Chief- Justice summed up the case for the Jury, and told them that they could only judge of the defendant's in- tern ion by the fact of publication, which necessarily implied, ill this instance at least, that the defendant was cognisant of the contents of the work which he had published, inasmuch as his name was printed at the bottom of it. The Jury, it was true, were the proper judges ofthe defendant's intention ; and as the law at present existed, it was their province also to de- cide upon tb'e tendency of the work. Iu his opinion, then, it certainly was a libel ; his view of the subject, however, ought not to influence them in their decision. The Jury retired, taking with them the publication alleged to be libellous, and after being absent from one until four o clock, they returned a verdic of Guilty. THE KING V. WILLIAM CLARKE. This was an indictment against the defendant for an im- pious, blasphemous, atheistical, and profane libel, published in a work called Queen Mab," written by a Mr. Percy Byshe Shelley, deceased. The prosecution wasvconducted by Mr. Gurncv and Mr. Marryat, for the Society for the Suppression of Vice. The defendant was without counsel, and conducted his own case. The libellous passages set forth in the indictment were of such a tendency that we forbear publication. The defendant, in an elaborate address to the Jury, disclaim- ed any intention of attacking the religion of the country, or of injuring its morals. The price at which the work was publish- ed, namely, 12s. fid. placed it above tire reach of the lower classes of society, who might he supposed to be most affected by its contents. In point of fact, there never had been more than one hundred and fifty copies of it sold ; and to shew the sincerity of his motives, the moment he heard ofthe prosecu- tion, he had offered to give up every copy of the work, and and enter into any pledge which they might require for his fu- ture good conduct. As to the character of the libel itself, he insisted that it was perfectly venial, compared with the w- oiksof some of the most eminent writers, who had adorned the litera- ture of the country; and that it only contained sentiments which had often been uttered by others with perfect impunity. Mr. Gurney replied ; and the Lord Chief Justice summed up the case for the Jury, who found the defendant Guilty. THE COMMITTEE OF LLOYD'S AND MR. CHOKER. A correspondence deeply interesting to that great and respectable body of English merchants has taken place within these few days between the Committee of Lloyd's and the Secretary to the Lords of the Admi- ralty. The facts of the ease are of such a nature, that our readers will be well satisfied to receive them unin- cumbered by a ay comments, and we accordingly sub- mit the follow ing brief abstract of dates, names, and communications: On the 7th of October the Secretary of Lloyd's addressed a L'Uer to the Admiralty, conveying intelligence that two Bri- tish merchantmen, the Vittoria and Industry, had, on the coast of the island of Cuba, been made the victims of piratical v olence and depredation. October 9— Mr. Croker states in reply that the Lords of the Admiralty had already learned the above intelligence re- specting the Viltoria and Industry, through a letter from Captain Walcott. of his Majesty's sloop of war Carnation, of the 12th August: that on that same day 17 sail of British merchant ships had passed safe by Cape St. Antonio ; that Capf. Walcott was waiting in that quarter to see the rest safe ; and that he teas stationed there by Sir Josias Rowley, for the general protection of the trade. Mr. Croker added farther, that the Dotterel was alsa stationed in that neighbourhood for the like purpose. On the 10th of October, a letter was addressed from Mr. Bennett, of Lloyd's, to his brother Secretary at the Admi- ralty, acknowledging the receipt of the former epistle, and thanking my Lords for their condescension ; hut. unfortunate- ly, Mr. Bennett was compelled to subjoin, that* he was direct- ed to lay before their Lordships the authenticated facts— 1st, that by a letter from Captain Barclay, ofthe Belina, just ar- rived from Jamaica in the Downs, that ship had met the Car- nation on the loth of August— not waiting" off' Cape St. Antonio lor the protection of trade, nor il stationed" there by orders of Admiral Row ley, but off the Colorados ; and under what circumstances? She had been to Campeachv, had touch- ed at Ilavanna, and was then on her way to Jamaica with specie. Now, the Colorados lies north of Cape Sin Antonio — that is to say, between Ilavanna and the latter Cape, and in the course from Havanna to Jamaica. So that the matter stands thus :— On the 12th of August, Captain Walcott had seen 17 sail of English vessels safe past Cape Antonio ; iflie had not seen them, and protected them, he or the Admiralty is guilty of a base quibble; for the evident import of the pas- sage is, that the merchcntmen owed their safety to him, and that he was waiting to do the same good turn for others.— Well, then, he had convoyed the merchantmen past ihe Cape on the 12th, and on the 1.3th he was met at Colorados, a de- gree or so to the north of the Cape, and at a point of his voy- age from Havanna to Jamaica, antecedent to Cape St. Antonio. It appears, therefore, that to make good the Admiralty his- tory. ihis ship Carnation must have been sailing backwards, getting further every day from Jamaica to which she was con- veying her profitable cargo of specie I It is in the above un- lucky letter that the Secretary to their Lordships describes the Dotterel lo have been stationed, as well as the Carnation, for the protection of trade in the same quarter; but Mr, Bennet destroys that fable also by showing, from the intelligence of Lloyd's List, that the Dotterel, on the 20th of August, had actually arrived at New Vork, with another cargo of specie. The Edward Protherde, it moreover appeals, had been run on shore under Saddle- hill and plundered, making her final escape in consequence of the privateer which attacked her hav- ing flown off in quest of other prey. October 11. A note from Mr. Croker to Lloyd's, present- ing his compliments, and requesting that any two gentlemen ofthe Committee who might find it convenient would call upon him at the Admiralty on the following clay between one and two o'clock. October 12. Mr. Bennet wrote lo Mr. Croker, stating that as Mr. Marryat and most others of the Committee would be out of town ( that day being Saturday), he begged that Mr. Croker would, if equally convenient to himself, name Monday instead of that first mentioned. October 13. Mr. Croker to Mr. Bennett assents. On Monday, the 14th, the Committee at Lloyd's met, and came to a Resolution, in substance, that as every former invita- tion to attend at the Admiralty had been addressed to the Chairman in the name and by command of the Lords Com- missioners, it would be a bad precedent if they were to wail upon the Secretary at his mere personal desire. A letter from Mr. Bennett, accompanied this Resolution, assigned, as a rea- son of the Committee for passing it, that Mr. Croker had not explained the object of the interview, and that any member of the Committee, being ignorant of, and unprepared, for it, would feel some inconvenience in attending. The same day, Mr. Croker, in reply, refers to several notes of old and distant dates from the Secretary of the Admiralty I to the Chairman of Lloyd's, addressed in a similar form as his of the week preceding, and as to the suppression of the pur- pose for which he proposed the interview, he says, that as he liad a communication to make, but not to receive, there exist- ed no necessity for a previous disclosure of its object. The 16th, a meeting was held, and resolutions passed by the Committee of Lloyd's. After reading all the correspondence of the previous week, and extracts of such of their proceedings as were connected with the notes referred to by Mr. Croker, in the years 1809, 1810, and 1813, a letter was prepared and transmitted to Mr. Croker, respecting the construction which he had placed upon the notes in question, proving that in every instance the communications of former Secretaries had been in the name and by order of the Lords ; aud that the interviews to which Mr. Croker's notes of reference had led, w- cre wilh the Lords in person. This letter went on to explain the essential difference between attendances on the I ordsand on their Secre- tary— that the former were known by experience to be extreme- ly rare, while the Secretary might frequently find it more con- venient to make oral, than written, communications. ' I'he letter continued, that when Members of the Committee attend- ed Ihe Board of Admiralty, the object, tenour, and result of the meeting were stated formally in writing, and a copy at once made public ; but that the verbal report of a conversation in- volved a responsibility which it would be painful to incur. The letter concluded by announcing the design of the Committee to abide by their former decision. A letter from Mr. Croker of the 1 9th, in a manner no doubt satisfactory to the Admiralty and its officers, finishes the whole correspondence. The gist of it was, that their Lordships, " seeing in Mr. Bennett's letter such marked disrespect to tlie Board of Admiralty, and such want of confidence in their com- munications, had ordered Mr. Croker to decline all further correspondence with the Subscribers t » the rooms at Lloyd's." We are not aware in what particular, on the face of this cor- respondence, any disrespect appears towards the " Board" of Admiralty ; and as for confidence in such communications as had been transmitted by its Secretary— whose fault is it, if they had been received with undissembled distrust? There is, beyond all question, such'a tone of wounded arrogance in the last official letter of which we have presented an abstract, that we are sure Mr. Croker must have felt himself humbled when " my Lords" imposed upon him the ungrateful task of affixing his signature to language so little like his own. to flie poor at Hampton, and on the instant deny her- self the common comforts of life. Her wine- cellar she has not opened for vears together, and a dish of tea vvas the usual extent of her hospitality. She always stated herself to be poor, as an apology for the ruinous. condi- tion in which the house and offices at Hampton now are. To save fuel, and secure herself from damp, a room in the attic served her " for parlour, for kitchen, and hall." She kept one female servant at Hampton, who resided with her many years ; and to compensate the poor wo- man and a numerous family ( for her Wages were small indeed) the house and grounds were shown to visitors, unknown to the old Lady. The furniture ofthe house at Hampton is exactly as it was left bv Garrick ; and, except the curious old china and the paintings, worth very little. The chairs, sofas, and chandeliers iri the drawing room ( the fashion of the times in which Garrick lived), are unworthy a common tavern of the present dav.— There arc several portraits of Mrs. Garrick in different apartments, taken when young, by which it would seem here appearance was then extremely fascinating. Mrs. Garrick's greatest pride was in promenading her pictur- esque grounds, and explaining with enthusiastic delight the age and date of each tall tree, planted bv herself and Mr. Garrick. 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 lifetime ofthe proprietor and occupant. The four celebrated pictures, " Scenes from the Brentford Election," and painted bv Hogarth, used to be placed in the dining- room, at Hamp- ton. They were exhibited, amongst other paintings by ' still more in 1820, That this assembly, although legitimate, has manu- factured a bad Constitution favourable to devolutions, is wluj^ rwe perfectly agree to ; we dare even affirm, that the erffightened Members ofthe Cortes are far from main- taining that this Constitution is a good one. But how can we establish the principle that the internal vices of'a Constitution give Foreign Powers the right to overturn, bv force of arms, a Government and an order of things which they have recognised? It was in 1812, at the moment of recognising the Cortes, at the moment of treating w ith them, that one should have said—" We reserve to ourselves the right of requiring some modifications in your Constitution." But this is not the only difficulty. In 1820, all the Courts of Europe, with the exception I believe of A ustria, answered officially the letter by which the Kiifgrif Spain announced that he had thought fit to put in activity tliii Constitution of the Cortes. Not one of these answers contains a disapprobation of this Constitution. Tliti Court of Russia alone, in a Note addressed to M. Zea Bermudez, gave to understand that she blamed the mili- tary insurrection of 1820 ; but, in the same sentence, insinuated that she disapproved the system pursued from 1811 to 1820. Nothing In these official documents announces the idea of an interference. It is this double act of recognition ofthe Constitutional system of Spain, which makes all argumentation very difficult by which it may be attempted to establish a right of interference grounded on the bad principles of the' Constitution— principles perfectly known in 181 ' 2, and Hogarth, at the British Institution a few seasons ago,; In general, all interference under such a principle is and since that time have been deposited in the house at j of a dangerous example.

Notwithstanding Mrs. Garrick's constant com- plaint about her poverty, and narrowness and inadequacy of her income, we understand she has left nearly seventy thousand pounds behind her. She was a rimd Catholic, and when at Hampton, if health and the weather per- mitted, used to attend the chapel at Isleworth on a Sun- day. It is exceedingly to he regretted that, together with the statue by Roubiliac, Garrick did not at his death bequeath to the Museum, the Chair made from a portion of the genuine mulberry- tree planted by the immortal Poet, and designed by his friend Hogarth. When Mr. Garrick first took his house in the Adelphi, he was one morning speaking to a Gentlemen respecting its situationand conveniences. " But," said the Gentlemen, " although the house is elegant, there is not, I believe, any yard behind it ?" " No," returned Garrick, " there is not absolutely a yard ; but I think the space behind is thirty- five inches !'' GREAT EVENT. We are somewhat surprised that our contemporaries, who chronicle such small occurrences as the arrival and departure of every itinerant captain, should suffer so memorable an event to pass unnoticed as Mr. William Dundas's Dinner to the Town- Council, on Tuesday last. It is lamentable that the citizens should not know the honour done to their representa- tives i it is hard thai the . Merchant and Trades Councillors should drink claret in high society, and have it concealed like an act of petty larceny ; and it is still harder that Mr. Wm. Dundas should be hospitable and eloquent and nobody know of it. The time has been when any thing ofthe name of Melville or Dundas could scarcely take a pinch of snuff in our city, but the fact was bulletined to the overjoyed inhabitants. Now the great heads of the family, supported hy the whole dignity ofthe magistracy, dine by stealth, and we dare say, blush to find it fame. The party was, what is sometimes described as select, by that sort of happy illusion which makes the smallest of God's creatures pass for mammoths iu their own eyes. The company consisted of Mr. William Dundas, Lord Melville, two young cadets of the family whose names we do not know, but who, we will pledge our heads, are both quartered on the country, and last— not least— the body corporate of the Town- Council. Such an aggregation of wisdom, virtue, and public spirit, is rarely to he seen in this or any other city, and we do therefore regret extremely that we have been able to catch but a few stray crumbs from the intellectual banquet. Of the speeches, toasts, and sentiments, we are almost entirely ignorant. We have only heard that the member, alluding to the honours and emo- lument his family hail acquired, described the Council as the ladder by which they had ascended to thein. ' I'he remark was received with great applause. Far be it from us to censure the simile ofthe •' ladder," the justness of which compensates for its humility. Men have put their feet upon some of the best things in the world ; and since many a deserving man has mounted a ladder for the good of society, it can Le no shame to Mr. William Dundas to mount a ladder for the good ofhim- self. We know not that a greater compliment could be paid to the wisdom and vigour of the Town. Council, than that it has been able to hoist up Mr. William Dundas to power and consequence, as Ihe goodness of Providence is most strikingly displayed in helping those who cannot help themselves. We do not wonder that ibis gentleman deprecates all innovation upon our happy system. If there were no sinecures— if men were only paiil for working— if they were not paid for being idle— how could he, without a miracle, pocket the tenth part of the five or six thousand a- year he draws from the public ? A good steady rotten burgh that never kicks or winces, and while itis put off with scraps itself— with a biennial beefsteak and pint of wine— can procure a worthy representative five or six thousand a- year, is better. than a good barony in the Lo- thians. Let the landed gentlemen, with their Committeeso/' Distress, look to this. There are no bad seasons, no ill paiil rents, no tithes, feintln, or county rates here. The profit of such a concern is like the virtue of the Stoics— beyond the reach of fire, floods, and shipwrecks. Disembarrassed by these happy arrangements from all thoughts a'lontjlie morrow, and living in a sort of empyreal calm. , our representative must necessarily reach the very profoundest depths of legislative wis- dom, and hence we need not be surprised at the luminous ideas which edify the public and astonish the House. What a happv order of tilings would we have, if eveiy burgh aud county were represented iu the same sty leas our own intellectual city ! ScoUman, Oct. 26. FOREIGN 1 NTELLTGEXCE. FROM FRENCH PAPERS. PARIS, Oct. 20—' I'he Cortes are not an assembly of Revolutionary orgin. A Decree of King Ferdinand of 5th May, 1808, addressed to every public authority which ought to he in a state of'freedom, ordered the con- vocation of the Cortes of the kingdom to oppose the acts of Bayoune. The extraordinary circumstances in which Spain was placed permitted the execution ofthe Decree only in a very irregular manner; nevertheless it is cer- tain that all the friends of legitimacy in Europe applaud- ed when the Cortes declared null and of no effect the ab- dications and cessions extorted from the Royal Family at Bayonr. e. The Cortes were recognised, by the Courts of London, Palermo, and Rio Janeiro, as a legitimate authority. The Emperor of Russia, when he broke with Bonaparte, in 1812, concluded with the Cortes a Treaty, of which the third Article runs thus : " His Imperial Majesty acknowledges as legitimate the As- sembly of the General and Extraordinary Cortes, actual- ly met at Cadia, as well as the Constitution ofthe Spa- nish Monarchy, which that assembly has decreed and promulgated."* Mns. GARRICK In the character of the late Mrs. Garrick there was a singular mixture of parsimony and liliorfiht v. She has been known to give 501. at one time * The Duke or Wellington commanded the llovalist armies of S| Kiiit under this title—" Manfuis ofDtiero. Duke ofCiu- dud Rodrigo, Generalissimo of the RoyrU Armies nf Spain." He no appointment but from the CoMes. against her if she attempted to impose her political code on others, or if she assisted those who might wish to do so; second, to give her the friendly advice to direct well the revision of her Constitution, which, according to various laws respecting it, may take place in 1821. There is a much more incontcstiblc motive to interfere in the internal affairs of Spain— a motive which depends not on a subtle theory, but on a fact easily demonstrated, if it exists with all the circumstances which public reports seem to put out of doubt. The legitimate and constitu- tional King of Spain, is he in liberty, when he does not dare go to a country house without asking permission of the permanent deputation ? Is he in safety when his guards and the garrison of the capital fight with cannon under the windows of his palace ? Can he freely exercise the functions of Royalty when ferocious cries resounding in his ears demand the blood of his almoners without form of trial, as in the case of Vinuesa ? Or when a phrenetic populace accelerates the punishment of Gene- ral Elio to prevent the effect of an application for par- don ? Is not his dignity cruelly outraged bv the insults lavished on a dying Queen, who is refused the liberty to breathe the country air ? These are notorious circum- stances, I cite them as such, without inquiring what is the cause?— who are the authors of them. It suffices to prove authentically these facts by a declaration ofthe Foreign Ministers at Madrid, especially the Family Ani- bassadors ( France and Naples), as having by right a freer access to the Palace ; then the right and duty of Europe to come to the aid of an oppressed Monarch will be per- fectly established ami profoundly felt. In vain shall it be said, that the Cortes have no part in the outrages on the Royal Family ; if that is not the true question, this is :— have they tiie power of stopping these outrages ? Can they guarantee the personal safety of the King ? Themselves the playthings of the multi- tude, how can thev if they would ? Itis necessary that no legitimate and constituted au- thority should be kept in prison, or a state equivalent to captivity. This is the true principle which European policy should oppose to these revolutions by armed force as fatal to liberty as to authority. This is the only prin- ciple which those, who like us, take a true interest in the frightful situation ofthe King of Spain must invoke. " But is your King in the most perfect state of liberty," « ill they say to the Government of Madrid, " If you will not or cannot comply with this just demand to the satis- faction of the Ambassadors representing the other Powers, these Powers cannot recognise in you a Govern- ment, nor in your country a Sovereign State." After having laid down this first basis of interference, the statesmen would have to examine by what means they could succour the King of Spain, what would be the dangers to avoid and the obstacles to overcome, if there is any chance of succeeding by a pacific neffocia- tion ; if any thing can he hoped from time, or if it ho necessary to act; if the different governments ought to unite their arms or confide the whole to a single power r l'ina| ly, incase of success, what guarantees ought to tie exacted P And as a good constitution is evidently one of these guarantees, ought it to be left to liberal Spain to propose one ? Finally ought this country to be left at war with its Colonics ? These are the questions which occupy at this moment the statesmen of Europe. We will return to them with- out troubling ourselves with the puerile declamations of men unacquainted with these matters; and who arc dis- pleased that we support, by reasoning, a cause which they compromise by the amplifications of'the College Journal dcS Delmts. OCTOBER 22— We find the following news in the Journal de Toulouse;—" The courier of the 15th has at length brought us news from Barcelona, dated the 5tli of October. " General Mina has not, it is said, fired a sinolc shot; he is occupied wholly in distribution- the command of the troops.

F& otf cekmax papers.. TI.- IE- STE, Oct. 2.— Since the dreadful ntossdcfes which took place in the Island of Cyprus, the summer be- fore last, the want of news from that island made its imagine that tranquillity had succeeded their first succes- ses. We indulged in this pleasing idea with the more confidence as there has never been the smallest symptom or indication of insurrection in the Island of Cyprus, A letter written bv the English Consul to one ofhis rela- tions who has resiiled in our eitv since the troubles of the East, has dispelled the illusion. This letter, which certainly cannot be suspected, is to the following effect i— " Cyprus, Aug. 15. " Sixty- two towns and villages of tbis tinhappv Island have totallv disappeared ; only their ruins remain to at- test tlie barbarity of their destroyers ; and vet the rage of these blood- stained monsters is not yet appeased. A band of wretches very lately repaired to Morphon, where they destroyed every thing with fire and sword ; the women and children were for the most part taken and confined for several days in private houses, without food : those who were not destroyed by hunger were burnt, togethor with the houses. Evcrv hour is mark- ed by murders in all parts of the island. The Christians are hunted like wild beasts. " It is chiefly upon the Churches and the Ministers of the Christian Religion, that these stupid Turks con- tinue to cxcrcise their fury. At Saint Niopa, after killing or taking prisoner the inhabitants in the midst of peace, they burnt the images of the Church, and transformed the edifice into a stable. At Chrvso- Roja- tis'sa, the Church of Aspro Panagia was changed into a mosque. Very lately tlie Zabit ( Sub- Governor) of Cyrinia, at the head of a band of furious wretches, en- tered ( he convent of Panteleimon, and after having sad- dled and bridled the Monks like beasts of burden, they mounted 011 their backs, and so rode about the country. Tlie Governor of the Island, a man equally ferocious and stupid, lately sent his Covas ( the performers of his orders) to the Monastery of Kicou, where some Caloy- ers ( or Anchorets) still remained. This Officer no less cruel than his master, made several of these poor solitaires expire in tortures— among others. Father Syl- vester, who was known throughout the Island. The rest dispersed, leaving the monastery deserted. " The Turks then set tire to the environs. The con- flagration continued 23 days, gradually extending to the neighbouring districts. Several fine forests of fruit trees, vineyards, & c. have fallen a prey to the flames. The damage done by this fire is incalculable. A tract of country 35 leagues in extent formerly so remarkable for its high cultivation and fertillity, is now nothing more than a heap of ashes. " That part of the island which is occupied by the troops of Mehmed Pacha of Egypt alone enjoys tran- quillity. Selih Bev who commands for the Pacha, makes his troops observe the strictest discipline. If Mehmed Ali should withdraw his troops, as there is reason to fear, there would no longer lie any security even for the Franks."—( It is the English Consul who speaks. HAMBURGH, Oct. 17.— We have received, bvwav of Odessas news from Constantinople of the 20th of September, ofthe following tenor : — Great uneasiness prevails here ; the Turks have been defeated bv the Persians near Erzerum. The great Caravan has been plundered by the Wechabites, who are advancing towards Mecca, and it is believed that the Pacha of Egypt will lie obliged to withdraw his troops from Candia and Cyprus, in order to oppose them. On the coast of Syria, a second earthquake has deso- lated the cities of Antioch, Sidon, and Alexandria, ( Little Alexandria, or Alexandriette, is probably meant.) Lastly, the Treasury is so exhausted, that the most ri- gorous decrees against luxury have been issued bv the Sultan. All silver plate must be brought to the Mint, whefre the owners receive a evry low price for it.— The Mahmudies and Budies ( coin so called) are called in, to be recoined at a deprecated standard. THE GREEKS. There is no news from Greece of any moment, but it is not disputed any where now that the Turks at Co- rinth were compelled to submit to any terms their con- querors would grant them. It is added that some of the principal officers were shot. Thk- appears in letters from Genoa. The disasters of the Turkish forces, their expulsion from the Morea, or rather the annihilation of the corps \< liich were employed in its invasion, and the Naval victory ofthe Greeks between Negropont and Andros, had at length been publicly known at Constantinople, and had excited consternation in that capital. But this is not all:— the main Turkish fleet, which was making its way for the Dardanelles, with the view of wintering there in safety, had been closely pursued by the Greeks, and was compelled to seek refuge in the Gulf of Napoli < li lioniania. No sooner was this knosvn, than the Greeks ofthe islands hastened to add their vessels to the squadron of their countrymen ; and the Greeks, thus reinforced were preparing to attack and destroy the Ottoman armament. Lord Strangford has addresed a r. ote to the Sublime Porte, the object of which is to ob- tain the recall ofthe Greek merchants exiled by the late persecutions. With these merchants the whole of the Levant trade has departed, and the British merchants, engaged 111 the commerce of that part of the world begin to feel severely, not only the suspension of trade, but the postponement ofthe debts due to them by the Greeks — the only traders in the Ottoman Empire. SPAIV. The intelligence from Madrid comes down to the 11th instant. On the IOth, a Deputation ofthe Extraordinary Cortes presented an Address to the King in reply to the Royal Speech, in which they assured his Majesty, " that they deplored with him the ravages occasioned by the civil war kindled in various provinces; and certain of the enthusiasm with which the patriotism of the Spa- nish 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." It is somewhat singular that we are still without cer- tain or authentic accounts from Spain. Such contra- dictory reports are spread concerning the operations of Mina, that it is impossible to form a satisfactory opi- nion. Some doubt is even thrown upon the fact of a I battle having taken place. The first accounts stated I hat the action took place on the 4th, whilst a more re- t ent one asserts that Mina had not fired a shot up to I lie 8th. The Paris Journals of the 24th instant have I rought intelligence, which no longer speaks ofa gene- 1 d action but describes a series of skilful movements, by 1 hich theConstitutionalists appearto havegainedasmuch S :- ound as if they had defeated the Insurgents in a great 1 attle. Indeed, if the accounts in the Bayonne Papers ? re entitled to credit, they seem unable to make head < HI any point, for we find them disbanding themselves \ ithout firing a shot, at the approach of the Constitu- t ianalists, and flying for refuge to the French territory. LONDON, Oct. 26. THE KING.— His Majesty, since his retirement to It'ti Cottage, at Windsor, has spent his time in unusual p. ) acv, admitting scarcely any one to break in upon him, < vt ' pting occasional state messengers from the different ,| i p irtmcnts. He rises very early, and retires early to L-.. 1- His Majesty now and then drives his little low char e and two ponies through the private rides in Wind- , t Great Park, with one companion and a solitary j .1 .011:. Tlie cottage and greenhouse, and all the new apartments are complete, and occupy In their. arrange- ment much ofhis Majesty's leisure. There are within the park many large preserves for game, and pheasants in abundance. The King has a few times indulged him- self witli liis pony and his gun, and lias 011 these occa- sions proved himself an admirable shot. There is no truth whatever in the report propagated in all the papers ofliis Majesty dining with the Lord Mayor on the 9th of November, at Guildhall. When the city officers waited upon the Secretary of State for an anwer to the invitation, the reply was, " I have received no com- : mands from his Majesty on the subject." 11 is Majesty has fixed Saturday next for leaving Windsor for the Royal Pavilion at Brighton. All doubt as to the appointment of Lord Amherst to the Governor- Generalship of India is now termi- nated, the Directors of the East India Company hav- ing this day confirmed his nomination to that important office. Yesterday morning dispatches were received bv Mr. Secretary Canning, from the Duke of Wellington, at Verona. Sir Robert and Lady Wilson arrived at Dover on Wednesday evening, by the Calais steain- packet. Ou Wednesday 26th instant, Mr. Irving was solemn- ly inducted by the Presbytery, of London, to the Ca- ledonian Church. A dinner was afterwards given in the Freemasons' Tavern. About 200 Gentlemen at- tended, Mr. Irving in the chair. Never had we the gratification of witnessing a more interesting assembly. The energy and eloquence ofthe Chairman, supported as it was by the lively humour and excellent sense of Mr. Laurie, whose exertions had mainly contributed to the happy result which thev now commemorated, gave a tone of extraordinary elevation to the proceedings. The harmony with which the members of the two established chinches of this kingdom, dissenters from both churches, and pastors of congregations whose temporal interests might excite mutual jealousy and apprehension -— the harmony nnd kindly feeling with which all these combined in welcoming Mr. Irving, was delightful in the highest degree. At five o'clock, Mr. Irving having taken the Chair, the company sat down to a very excellent dinner. SIR HUDSON LOWE AND 11A HON LAS CASES. Wre understand that a rencontre took place on Tues- day morning, the 22d inst. between Sir Hudson Lowe and Baron Las Cases, eldest son of the Count of that name, opposite the house ofthe former, when the Baron applied a horsewhip to the shoulders of the Major- General. We have received, says the Morning Chronicle, the following letter from a Gentleman whose address is known to us :— Mr DEAR FRIEND, Octobers,", 1822. I deem it requisite to make a communication to you, oirtlie instant, relative to an occurrence in which I. was concerned ; and 1 shall proceed, without further preface, to enter on the subject of it. Yesterday I met Major- Geaeral Sir Hudson I. owe, in Pad- dington Green, aa he was about to enter a hackney coach, when an altercation ensued, during which I struck him across the shoulders with a horsewhip which I held in my hand. Having thus chastised him, I instantly presented my card, but he thought tit to throw it away, without deigning to read it. Upon tliis 1 tendered him a second address, and afterwards a third, all of which he in like manner threw away. His ser- vant maid, however, who had by this time come out of the house, picked up my cards, and carried them into his residence, when the hackney coach drove oil', and I proceeded on my way. Few persons but myself and my father are fully acquainted with the cruel provocations which I have received from this man. Dining our detention at St. Helena, we were arrested in the most brutal manner, and subsequently kept in close con- finement during one month, au sccret, and treated precisely like criminals. What slill more tended to augment this cruelty, was my health, being at that period in a very precarious state, from the effects produced by a tropica! climate upon < 1 constitution naturally weak. This was represented to Sir Hudson Lowe by the physicians, who explicitly made known to him, that it was essentially necessary to the recovery of my health, that I should be allowed to return to Europe, that t might receive the benefit of my natal air. Such a mea- ure, however, would have been in direct opposition to the secrecy in which he was desirous of enveloping all his proceedings on the island. He demanded of Mr. B. O'Mcara, an official repo t upon the state of my health. Mr. O'Meara, who uniformly conducted himself towards every one of us as became a man of honour and humanity, deli- vered in to Sir Hudson Lowe a report, which was dictated by his conscience ; hut the Governor proved deaf to every repre- sentation of feeling and of truth, and my father and myself were ordered off to the Cape of Good Hope, where w e were detained as prisoners for seven months, owing to the instruc- tions forwarded by Sir Hudson Lowe. This captivity, coupled with a separation from his family and his country— the mental anguish that succeeded— the weak state of health, and the age of my father, have been the fatal sources of those infirmi- ties under which lie now labours, and which will continue to bear hitn down to the grave, After our departure from St. Helena, Sir Hudson Lowe proceeded to employ those means with which he was so con- versant to blacken my father's character, and render him an object of suspicion to Napoleon and tbe French Officers on the island. Among other things, he stated to General Bertrand, that Count Las C. ises had confessed that himself aud all other attendants upon Napoleon, had exerted every endeavour to ruin him ( Sir Hudson Lowe) in the opinion of his captive, by seeking to make him regard the person and the actions of Sir Hudson Lowe " through a veil of blood." When speaking of my father, after his departure, I have been informed, and believe that he not unfrequently Coupled with his name, the epithets of, " thutd d rascal, that d d lying old rascal, Count Las Cases," & c. It is not impossible for a man of honour to speak disrespectfully of another, but, in such cases, he uniformly pronounces his opinion to his face, and never during his absence. To continue such nauseous details, of which I could extend the catalogue, ad infinitum, would prove as disgusting to you as they are truly painful to my mind, and I do not hesitate to avow, that the sole object of my visit to England was to com- pel Sir Hudson Lowe to afford the satisfaction for the wrongs which I have thus sketched ; and being convinced by reflection upon his previous conduct and character, that he would have recourse to legal proceedings if I sent him a challenge, I deter- mined to put upon him the greatest public insult that could be offered to a Gentleman, conceiving that that only could procure for me the satisfaction I so eagerly desired. I shall terminate the present statement by remarking, that a son who vindicates the cause of an aged, sick, and honoured father, only fulfils a most sacred duty imposed upon him, and iu so acting pursues the path of honour and of rectitude. I am, my dear Sir, your's most sincerely, & c. ( Signed) LE 15 A HON EMM. DE LAS CASES. P. S.— Soon after the occurrence took place, I wrote to Sir Hudson Lowe to inform him that, if he would give his word to act like a man of honour, I should always be ready to answer to him. SIR ROBERT WILSON. The following letter, which has been addressed by Sir Robert WiisOn to his constituents, at once sets conjec- ture at rest as to the cause of his removal from France. The pitiable abjectness of the acknowledgment on the part of the French Authorities is almost incredible. We have before had occasion to quote tbe opinion of Napo- leon as to the leading characteristic of the Bourbons— ' FEAR.' And so comprehensively is it exhibited at present, that every human being who has the sentiments and attributes ofa MAN, seems to inspire it. We need not say that these poor doings are as honourable to Sir Robert Wilson, as disgraceful to France, which if it be thus governed long, will become the Lilliput of Europe : TO THE ELECTORS OF SOUTHWARD. GENTLEMEN, London, October 26, 1822. My removal from Paris and France by a peremptory ( and in the opinion ofthe best French lawyers, as well as of the late Duke of Hichelieu when Prime Minister), unconstitutional exercise of power, must be a circumstance to engage your at- tention ; and I feel it to be a duty to all'ord you every possible, as well as the eailiest. explanation. O11 the receipt of the order, I applied, through the proper official channel, for communication of the motives which had determined the French Government to adopt the measure. Nil written answer could be obtained ; but I received a verbal as- suaance, '• That the measure was not accusatory, but one which was rendered necessary, in my own interest as well as that of the French Government, by my political position, which made mc in spite of myself fmulgre moij ojoytr, or rallying, point lor the oppofleffU of the French GovMT. tr. 4tit. to gather risund, and under the shelterof it to circulate their opinions. I shall, Gentlemen, only remark upon this declaration, which I have given as accurately as memory could serve, that if the temporary residence of art individual in France, violating no law-, hut possessing the most honourable friendships, and a distinguished portion of pdlilic favour, for his proved abhor- rence of vindictive systems of Government, and undisguised attachment to the rights and liberties of independent nations, be incompatible with the safety or repose of Hie existing French Government, it is not, and 1 trust I may say it without pre- sumption, for you to feel humiliation 011 finding that your Re- presentative is the individual so proscribed. I have the honour to be, Gentlemen, Your most obedient Servant, Regent Street, Oct. 25, 1822. ROBERT WILSON. Signor Raffaelle Gargnilli, of Naples, the restorer of ancient vases in the Museo Borbonico, has, it is said, been fortunate enough to discover a cement to be used in repairing those antique remains, which through the carelessness of the workman, or from other causes, are broken into fragments when dug out of the ground.— Neither fire nor water are necessary in applying it, and when applied it resists heat and humidity, and unites the parts so firmly, that the vase or other articles reacquires its ring on being sounded. AMERICAN JEUX D'ESPRIT.— A gentleman by the name of Wellesley Pole ( according to the English papers), has unfortunately been so simple as ' to lose sit sport the trifling estate of 60,0001. per annum ; and what is still more distressing, has been obliged to re- tire to Paris, to struggle for a livelihood on his wife's miserable jointure of 7,0001. or 31,000 dollars per an- num— not above 6000 dollars more than our President receives ! To add still further to his distress and morti- fication, some of his creditors have been ruthless and unfeeling enough to seize upon a few moveables found at his country residence, among which articles they had the meanness to expose to public sale a_ mahogany boot- jack, which only brought the paltry sum of 31. 13s. 6d. besides stripping his windows of their curtains, which sold for no more than 941. 10s.!!! adamant must be that heart which refuses to bleed at the bare recital of the above distresses ! The sufferings among the poor in Ireland, in contrast, may be con- sidered as a mere flea- bite.— New Yor/ c Paper. DOVER, Oct. 21.— It may not be amiss to say, a little by way of caution to travellers, of the gross and impudent impositions on the Dover road. A friend, who arrived this morning, tells me that at Rochester, where he was charged 2s. 6d. for a very ordinary cold supper, the landlady demanded sixpence each, as a re gular thing, for her trouble in waiting upon the party. At Canterbury he gave 3s. for himself aud companion to the coachman. On arriving at Dover, he gave the coachman who drove him from Canterbury, a very short distance, Is. 6d. The coachman civilly said, " Sixpence more, Sir, if you please— it is a regular thing ; we al- ways have a shilling each." The guard, to whom he gave 3s. demanded four as a regular thing, without any insolence, but with as much gravity as a baker would ask for the price of a quartern loaf when he has delivered it to a customer. Before a passenger leaves Dover his things are of course taken to the Custom- house— a little bov from the inn may carry a parcel weighing 201b. for which he demands Is. or Is. 6d. ; you appear surprised; he appeals to the Commissioner, who civilly declares it a regular thing, and then the boy asks for something for himself, because the money already paid goes to his em- ployer, and lie expects threepence as a regular thing.— Next comes the Commissioner of the Inn—" Please to remember the Commissioner, Sir ;"— and then the Cus- tom house officer for taking the baggage to the vessel. O CO 3 t , If you complain, they reply, " It's a regular thing, Sir, > fixed by the town." Lastly comes the ladder fordescend- I ing into the packet—" Sixpence, Sir, it is a regular thing." Thus from London to Calais there is nothing but imposition, against which you complain in vain, because it is a regular thing. At the moment in which I am writing this, the steward of the King George enters the inn, and declares that he must have 20s. for each passenger to Calais, instead of the usual fare, 10s. 6d. because it is a regular thing when there is 110 steam- boat in the harbour, and you have only Hobson's choice. hurricanes itrc now fnore., visible than ever along tiie whole extent of this coast,. .. We learn that . the bodies belonging to those vessels wljich were wrecked, have been cast ashore in our vicinity. , The . number stated to have been already found amounts to upwards of thirty men and nearly twenty boys ; quantities of wreck ai'e also daily cast 011 shore, together with various articles of the different cargoes. The Betsey and Mary of- tUis port, botind to Hull, was totally lost on Sunday last dil the Lincolnshire coast. The crew, however, ware saved. The brig Trebby, Walker, and the Minerva, also of this place, were driven on shore near Redcar in the night ; and various other vessels with return cargoes from Several ports which ought to have arrived, have not been heard of, and it is feared are lost. The Bet- sey and Mary was laden with wheat and rape seed, and foundered near Ingoldsmel. Ou Saturday evening, the 12th instant, the schooner Dispatch, of Dundee, Morris, in proceeding from Li- merick to Hull, with 800 barrels of rnpeseed, drifted on the Herring Rock, in this river, and tilled so instantane- ously, that the crew with difficulty escaped to the Island of Corrigrievvaune, at the entrance of Askeaton river. On Sunday night, the Captain and crew went ashore to the main land at Merino Point, and took up their abode in separate cabins, the Captain in one, and the mate, pilot, and crew ill another, carrying with them such ar- ticles as were saved from the wreck. At about nine o'clock, the house in which the mate and crew werelodg. ed was surrounded by an armed party of men, whose heads were covered with white cloths, and who, after breaking in the doors, inquired for the strangers, de- manding their arms. The unfortunate people were drag- ged out of the house, beaten, and ill used in tlie most cruel manner by the gang, being disappointed in getting but one musket and some ammunition. The owners of the house also were most inhumanly treated. They did not discover the abode of the Captain, against a pair of | whom they vowed vengeance if found. The vessel is a Hard as [ complete wreck. ' FA . ' '' OCTOBER— Slateford, Ist Monday • Roshearty,- Ist Tuesday 1 Macduff, 1st, Wed. & tliur. Falkirk, 2d Tuesday' Dingwall, Martha- Fair, do.

Portsmouth, Oct. 20.— The Trafalgar, Thomson, from London for the coast of Africa, has put in here, having yesterday been struck oil' the coast of Sussex, and thrown on lier beam ends; lier boats, iron cables, and every thing on deck falling to leeward, she was with difficulty righted, by throwing a quanti y of potatoes overboard. Wells, Oct. 20 The Eleanor of Sunderland, Bell, is got off'the main and into this harbour, with very little damage.— The brig Squirrel of Sunderland, Sharp, after being abandon- ed by the crew, has been brought into this harbour by ten men, who went off from this at the risk of their lives. The Slanev, Ilore, from Ayr to Dublin, was lost 12th inst. at the entrance of Lochryan. Crew and most of the stores and rigging saved. The Darthula, of Scarborough, Blenkinsop, from Liver- pool to New- foundland, drove 011 the rocks near Crookhaven on tiie night of the 11th inst. and was totally wrecked ; crew with difficulty saved by assistance from the shore. She had lost her masts on the 30th ult. The Ganges, Kirkbridge, from Newcastle to Lisbon, was totally wrecked the end of last month near Aveiro. Most of the cargo saved and landed there. Crew saved. The Alexander, Lyon, has arrived at Naples, and the Woods, , at Malta, both from the Clyde. The Guiana, , has arrived at Demerara from the Clyde, and the Benson, Ilowe, at St. Thomas's, also from the Clyde. OCTOBER 25.— The Marquis of Queensberry picket, bound to Jamaica, put back to Falmouth on Monday, under jury masts. O11 the 16th instant, of Cape Finisterre, she car- ried away her bowsprit, foremast, mainhead, topmasts, & c. in a heavy gale from N W. FIGUEIRA, Oct. 6.— We have experienced very bad weather for some days, and on the night of the 2d inst. owing to a heavy sea 011 the bar, and a strong currentin the river, all the vessels on this side of the harbour dragged their anchors, and ran foul of each other. The British schooner Two Brothers, Tinkam, and Belleisle, Pitts, were obliged to cut their cables to prevent being run foul ot' by three large vessels, and they drove 011 a sand bunk in the river, w here they lay in safety till the tempest abated, when they returned to their moorings w ith- out damaging their cargoes. The Earl of Buckinghamshire, Johnston, from Quebec to Greenock, was abandoned at sea J 4th inst. The crew, ex - cept two men who were washed overboard, arrived at Cork, 1 ltli inst. in the Mary, from Richebucto — ( Mem. The Earl of Buckinghamshire was reported to have arrived iu the Clyde.) The Haw ke, from Clyde to Newfoundland, was spoken with 011 the 12th inst, in l « t. 47. long. 30. by the Caledonia, Hoggart, arrived at Liverpool. The East India Company's ship Ganges, Chivers, from Bengal, has arrived in the Downs : sailed about the 20th April. The East India Company's ships, General Harris and Marquis Camden, arrived at Prince of Wales' Island, from China, on the 16th of March. The Mary of Workington, arrived at Cork from Richebucto," fell in with the Earl of Buckinghamshire, from Quebec to Greenock, in the greatest distress, water- logged, and the sea washing completely over her. The crew, consisting of 24 men, and 22 passengers, had remained on the wreck eight days ; two of the crew were washed overboard. The remainder arrived safely in the Mary. O11 Wednesday the Russian frigate Kruizer, of 36 guns, Captain Lazaroff, arrived at Portsmouth from Cronstadt, in six weeks, to replenish her supplies and await the arrival of a store- ship with which she will pro-' ceed to California, both vessels- being destined 011 a visit of inspection, and to land stores to the Russian settle- ments' in the North Pacific Ocean. They are victualled for three years. It is expected they will sail at the latter end of next week, touching, at Rio Janeiro. The store ship arrived on Saturday.

Top prices the same, but current prices rather lower than last day ; top price of old, 25s. ; top price of new, 25s.; current prices of new from 19s. to 22s. — Top price of old Barley, Is. 6d. lower than last day ; best, 24s. 6d. ; top price of new, 24s. ; current prices of new from 20s. to 23s ' 1' op price of old Oats 6d. lower than last day; best, 17s. od.; top price of new, 15s. 6d.; current prices of new from 13s. 6d. to IRELAND. I. icut.- General Lord Cotnbermere, Ci. C. T!. who" has been lately appointed to succeed the laie Lieutenant- General Sir S. Atichmutv iri the command of tlie troonl 111 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 David Baird, G. C. B. and K. C but ifierely as Lieutenant- General, cotfrmandmg the Forces. The re- ductions in the pay being, therefore, very considerable, the office of the Commander of the Forces 111 Ireland may consequently be considered, at the present moment,• more as an honorary than an advantageous appointment. The accounts from the south of Ireland since Satur- day week are ofa very unpleasant nature. Though the King's Counsel are sitting at Special Sessions in Limerick and Cork, the work of destruction goes on as actively, 1 almost, as at any period during the last winter or spring. The infatuated and desperate peasantry are again col- lecting arms,- and again have the gentry, who were not able to remove to towns, or t'tf the capita], called upon the Government for assistance. We regret to find the Irish Papers filled with details of outrages of a diabolical character. The burning or tithe corn is becoming general in the counties of Cork and Limerick, where the perpetrator of such mischief' act in the most daring manner. 15s.— Pease from lis. to 1 to 16s. Wheat.

GLASGOW, Oct. 22.— There was rather a scanty sup- ply of fat cattle in the market yesterday, and although a num- ber of good beasts were brought forward, the cattle, taken in the aggregate, were inferior in condition to those of last day. Sales were in consequence duil. Inferior beasts brought from 5s. to 6s. a- stone, and best from 6s. to 7s. a stone. There was a pretty fair supply of sheep, and more superior black- faced wedders were offered for sale than on any previous day this season. Considering the quality of the sheep, tups were down about Is. a- head since yesterday month. Prices ran from 9s. to 15s. a- head. A few excellent lots, from Ilal- quhidder and neighbourhood, sold at 17s. 6d. a- head ; those sheep would each average about lOlbs a- quarter of mutton ; and four years ago wedders from the same owner's stock, ill this same market, brought about 30s. a- head. The supply of black faced ewes being limited, they were in demand, and maintained last day's prices. White- faced sheep were also scarce, and sold well : wedders brought from 22s. to 27s. and ewes brought from 9s. to 16s. each. There were 110 lambs iu the market, and they may be considered as over for the sea- son. A few sheep and fat cattle remained unsold at the con- clusion of the market. The new market, established by the Magistrates of Stirling, for the hiring of servants, was held on Friday last, and from the great turn- out promises to be attended with the utmost ad- vantage and convenience, both to the masters and servants. Men- servants formed the most numerous class, but from the depressed state of agriculture, engagements were made but slowly, and many were compelled to leave the fair without being hired. Wages fur first late ploughmen were from 121. to 141. 14s. per annum ; second, or inferior hands, from 91. to 121. youths, from 14 to 18 years pf age, here usually termed slumps, received from 41. to 71. Female servants met much more readily with masters ; the better sort, aud able to manage a dairy, received from 61. to 71. per annum : those of an in- ferior class, from 51. to el. and young girls, from 21. 10s. to 41. The Bmnockburn October Market was held mi Tuesday last. The show of horses was very limited and but few sales effected; what was done was chiefly in draught horses of on inferior kind, and at prices in 110 respect advantageous for the seller. The milch cows brought forward, for the most part returned unsold; and although a number of farmers from the surrounding country attended, little business appeared to have been done. MORPETH, Oct. 23. — At our market this day there was a great supply of Cattle, which met with dull sale at a re- duction in price. There was a full market of Sheep and Lambs, and being little demand, prices were lower— Beef, 4s. to 4s. 6d Mutton. 4s. to 4s.

Robertson to Fortiviot. On Monday night last,' . fbout half past nine o'clock, rt beautiful meteor was seen to the north of this city ; it passed with great rapidity in a horizontal fine from east to west, throwing out sparks from behind. It was in appearance about the . size of a star of the first magni- tude, arid of equal brilliance. It disappeared without explosion. A vessel lately sailed from the Broomielaw for Li' 3bort with a Considerable quantity of excellent potatoes iu place of ballast. A dealer in town, in twelve hours, put in about 50 bolls, tire quantity required, for. 8s. 6if. a boll. There is another vessel loading in the same way at the Broomielaw just now. Her cargo is sup « plied at a rather lower rate by a farmer near Govan. A remarkable electrical phenomenon was exhibited ad Perth yesterday week, between nine and ten o'clock, morning, in the house of Mr. John Ramsay, fishinrf- tackle- maker, High Street. As Mrs. Ramsay sat by the fireside, she was disturlied by a loud rumbling noise descending the chimney ( the house is three stories high; and Mr.- Ramsay's is the lowest.) Starting back, she was instantly surrounded by a flame; and an e. tplosiou having taken place, the room was filled with smoke and sulphureous vapour. The fluid shattered two panes of glass in a back Window, arid Scattered the fragments to a distance often or twelve feet. Tlie polished wires at' several new bird- cages in the room were covered as if with rust, by the action ofthe fluid before it escaped. The noise was heard at a considerable distance, and threw the neighbourhood into great agitation. Mrs. Ramsay sustained no personal injury. On Tuesday Se'ennight, a cart, containing smuggled whisky, succeeded in crossing the Frith at Queerisferrv from the north, accompanied by three men. Thev had halted all night in the neighbourhood of Cramoud Bridge, and just as they were starting On Wednesday morning, at four o'clock, they received an unwelcome visit from v posse of Excise officers from the North Ferry. Tht; smugglers ran off, leaving any easy capture ofthe' hor.- e and cart, containing seventy gallons of excellent High- land whisky, whieh the officers conveyed to Borrow- stouness. ' Ihe cart appeared to be loaded with logs ol wood, but, Upon examination, they proved to be loose deals, so packed as to. resemble stjriare logs inside of which the whisky was aftftilly concealed. On Monday last a respite during his Majesty's plea- sure, was received for William Robertson, who was sen- tenced at the Perth circuit to be executed on the 31st curt, and is now confined in the Jail of Cupar. The fate of this unfortunate man, whose guilt, according, to* general report, was palliated by a variety of circum- stances which could not be made the subject of judicial investigation, has eXcited amcng all classes there th « liveliest commiseration. It is hoped that the respite which the Authorities of Cupar have exerted themselves most streririolrsly to procure, will be followed by and Irv with an intimation that his Majesty has been! graciously pleased to remit the punishment to whieh the law haV condemned him.

Union Street," 28th Oct. 1822. watched bv the Government; but tbe open avowal of the state of parties in France, made in the official decla- ration, is truly wonderful. But we are farther assured, tlint while the Swiss Guards are augmented, and treated with every- mark of confidence, the National Guards, the constitutional militia of Paris, have been deprived of their Uill cartridges ! Well might NAPOIEON Say of the Bourbon Princes, that they had learned nothing from adversity, but continued to believe, that the people of France itiigbt be again reduced to the condition in which thev were before the Revolution, Tfie fate of the Swiss. Guards of Louis XVI. ought to, have taught his successor, the impropriety and danger of again introduc- ing foreigners, as if to overawe the people of Paris, upon whose attachment the Sovereign ought at all times more especially to rely. . But to disarm Frenchmen, while foreigners are entrusted with the cafe of the Royal Family, is a dangerous experiment indeed— but it has been made, whatever may be the result. It would really appear not improbable, that Louis still loots to tbe proceedings of Congress, and the measures to be adopted in the.- iiftliirs of Spain, fyr the means of tran- quillizing France, by intimidation or coercion. Tlie report, that the Army of Observation on the Spanish frontiers had. been, broken up, proves altogether unfoun- ded ; for an English officer passed through their lines about three weeks ago, who reports, that the army amounts tr> about eighty thousand cavalry and infantry effective, with a park, of artillery sufficient for an arinv inueli more numerous. That the troo[> s constantly parade in marching order, arc in a high state of discipline, and apparently expect orders to march within a short time. Of this army wc have already heard, that thev loudly cheered wlien thev heard of the defeat of revolted guards of FERDINAND in July last ; and the question is, How they will act when opposed to the Spanish consti- tutional army ? That soldiers may be brought to fight in a cause that they believe to be bad is very true— but supposing this Army of Observation to partake of the sentiments now prevalent in France, tbe Royalist Gen- erals who lead tlieni must expect the commencement of hostilities with no small degree of anxiety. In the mean time, the Cortes are acting wisely in giving full publicity to all the details of the insurrection, and their communi- cations with the King. Tfie people must be pleased with this candid proceeding, and become more attached to their free Constitution, which requires none of the con- cealments or misrepresentations which are necessary to » the cause of the scrviles. The question has been put— whether a conspiracy against the Bourbons really, exists in France, for the proceedings upon the late trials affor- ded no satisfactory proof ofthe fact; biit. it is not at all improbable, that plans arc formed or in preparation for restoring the: great, nation to its proper rank and in- fluence, and those plans will not be defeated by sending a few individuals to the scaffold. In this cause, death bas no terrors for Frenchmen ; but it is not good policy in the Ministers of Louis to accustom the people to tbe sight of young men dying with enthusiastic alacrity, in what is very generally held to be. the cause of their coun- try. Whether the allied Sovereigns intend to invite FERDINAND to attend the Congress is not vet known ; but a short time must now serve to develops their plans, as far as they are yet matured. EXAMINATION' PT SCHOOLS. The Annual Visitation of the Punuc Scjiools of'this City took place oil Wednesday se'ennight The Lord Provost and Magistrates, file Professors ofthe University, and the Clergy, met at 10 o'clock, at the Semi- nary for Writing, Arithmetic, and Mathematics, taught by Messrs. I'LNM. \ Y and CRAIOMII. E. Here they found many excellent specimens of writing both plain and ortiamen' and were highly pleased with the progress of the pupils • in Arith- metic, Book- keeping, Algebra, Geomelry, Mensuration, Plane and Spherical Trigonometry, Geography, Navigation, & c.-— i They observed many beautiful and accurate Maps and Charts, and also many manuscripts in various branches of mixed Ma"-, tbematics, w- ell written, ami illustrated wilh accurate diagrams and perspective views. They were particularly interested - in marking the proficiency of a considerable number of young gentlemen itl the Elements of Geometry, who not only lie- 1 meliorated with accuracy, and without hesitation,, many pro- positions in the first four Books of Euclid, luttalso shewed, by their answers, to a variety of questions put by- the visitors, that they remembered and understood the whole traiu- of reasoning, from the beginning of the work. ' Ihe Visitors next repaired to the GIIASIMAR Scitoot.,. where, after exercises ill translating from English into Latin, were prescribed to the fourth and fifth classes, taught by Mr. CROMAH the Rector, and to the third, taught by Mr. IVlEhvix,. they heard tbe first and second classes examined by their respective teachers, Mr FORRES and Mr. WATT. During a long examination, the latter classes gave very great satisfac- tion by their translations qf passages of I, atlri pointed out hy the visitors, and by the knowledge of Etymology and Syntax, and of the Latin idiom, displayed in their answers to many very pertinent questions proposed by the musters. Several of the Professors and Clergy were employed during the evening in examining tlie versions written by the higher classes, and in determining the order of merit. Of the ver- sions given in by each class, not a few were found lo he free from errors, although the exercises presented considerable dif- ficulties : several of tliein were accounted elegant; and in ge- neral, they displayed such a knowledge ofthe structure of the Latin language, as did very great- jtfedit to both masters and scholars. On Thursday the visitors being re- assembled ill Ihe Gram- mar School, the Usual prizes, consisting of books, were distri- buted to the most deserving scholars in the several classes ; after which the Lord Provost, witft the entire concurrence of all the visitors, complimented the Rector and the other Mas- ters, on the high character. sti. il supported by lliesemiuaiy and expressed his hope, that their exertions, as teachers, would continue to be animated by the confiiJcn. ee of the public. It niu t, the " Visitors think, be highly satisfactory to. the citizens of Aberdeen to know, that, in the judgment of those whose duty it is to examine into the state of public education in this place, the Grammar School continues to be. a seminary in which tile Latin language is accumfely taught— where suc- cessful methods of communicating knowledge, and forming habits of attention, are. adopted— where the emulation excited by public education is usefully directed— and where the founda- tion may be laid of those higher attainments io polite literature, for which it is the business of Universities lo afford peculiar facilities. On Wednesday also, the Lord Provost, Magistrates, Pro- fessors and Clergy,, visited the PAROCHIAL SCHOOL in Drum's Lane, taught by Mr. FALCONER, whose pupils gave very gra- tifying proofs of their progress in Reading, Recitation, Spel- ling, English Grammar, and Writing, and in the important » < position ofa knowledge of the principles of our religion. Many of the specimens of Writing exhibited in this school, were, as on former oeccasions, very much admired. smaller kind, came on shore on the island of Nyrtli Ronald nv in Orkney, which were secured bv the inhabitants, and roM hy public roup for about L.

T The truth at last begins to transpire, and even from Constantinople, that the Morea is not in possession of the Turks— that the Greeks have suffered no great reverses during the latter part of the campaign— and that, on the contrary, the fleets fitted out against them have in every instance been defeated, so that the naval force ofthe Porte cannot be effective for many months. The finances of the Turks are also in a state of the greatest embarrassment, the revenues formerly obtained from Greece being now cutoff, and no farther advan- tages to be derived from the commerce of the Levant. All silver plate has been ordered to be brought into the mint, at a very low price, that it may be coined ; but much it is supposed will be concealed. The Persian war too, appears to be unsuccessfully carried on by tlie Turks, and it is believed, that bloodv insurrections in the capital will probably be the result of these public mis- fortunes. The Janissaries are already in a state of in- subordination-, and the Grand Signior, under such circumstances, must know, that " bis heads assurance is but frail." That the British Government has favour- ed the cause of the Turks is well known ; but from pass- ing events, it would seem, that tbe downfal of the Cres- cent is at hand : and it appears equally probable, that the Greeks, even unassisted, will ultimately succeed in establishing their independence, provided the powers that have hitherto stood aloof and withheld their assistance take no active part against them. Their bravery and exertions in the field have shewn them worthy of their ancestors; they have obtained supplies of wailike stores, and have among them well disciplined officers. Their army is in fact an European army, and thev are opposed to Asiatics, incorrigible in their errors, and without dis- cipline or steadiness. HOUSE and GROUND in OLDMELDRUM, FOR SALE.

The state of the British West India Colonies bas been ; for some time very distressing, the value of produce, and consequently of landed property, having undergone a most ruinous depreciation, so that upon some estates the produce will not pay the necessary expenees. In this On Tuesday, Mr. REID'S School in the Green, for Reading, English Grammar, Writing, Arithmetic, and Book- keeping, was visited hy several of the Rev. the Clergy of this city, who expressed themselves much satisfied with the progress which the Scholars attending it have made. On Thursday last, several of the Magistrates, Professsors, and Clergy, visited the Commercial School in Drum's Lane, lauglrt by Mr. ELCEN, and expressed themselves satisfied with the progress of his pupils in Writing, Arithmetic, Book- keep- ing, and various branches of Mathematics. Here they found many wel> executed Maps and Charts, perspective views, plans and elevations of buildings, and some beautiful drawings of complicated pieces of Machinery. Several young gentlemen, to whom Mathematical problems wore proposed, gave the solu- tions very readily and accurately. The same gentlemen next visited the School in. Long Acre, taught by the Messrs. GRANT, where they marked, with plea- sure, the progress of the pupils in Reading, Spelling, and Writing, and in acquiring a knowledge of the principles of Christianity. On Thursday also,, the same gentlemen visited Mr. SMITH'S- School in Shiprow. Ik- re they were much , pleased with the specimens of Reading, Spelling, anil Recitations, given by Mr. Smith's pupils and heard them examined on the principles of the Christian Religion. Oil Friday last, the School itl ' Milne's Court, Gallowgate, taught by Mr. JAFFRAY, was visited by severai of tin Ministers ofthe Established Church, and Professors in the University, who were much pleased with the proficiency of the scholars, as displayed in the specimens given ofthe branches which Air. Jaffray's plan embraces.— Prizes were adjudged jo those who excelled in reading English,- English Grammar, and Writing. On Friday, the: 25th tilt. Mr. PAT^ RSON'S School. Netjier- kirkgate, was visited by some of the Professors of the University, and several of tbe Ministers of Aberdeen, His English pupils, who were examined in reading and spelling, seemed to have made considerable progress, and with his L^ tin scholars, of w hom the school chiefly consists, the visitors were very much pleased i a Colloquy of Corderius was prescribed to one class, and part of the Life, of Agesilaus, in Cornelius Nepos, to another. These passages they not only construed, analyzed, and explained, with great readiness and correctness, but on their teacher varying the translation, they with ease and ele- g ince iiliered the structure ofthe sent - nces in the Latin so as' t » accord with such variations. A class, still farther advancede displayed an accurate and extensive acquaintance wilh th[, genius of the Latin language, by translating a piece of Englist| into Latin, in the presence of- the visitors, and which they ha. prescribed. This exercise they all performed in a very creditt able manner ; and some of them in a style far beyond wfta was to have been expected from boys of liieir ii_ e. Iu short it would not he very easy for the visitors to express, in too strong terms, their impression of Mr. Patersou's abilities, diligence, aud success, as a teacher of Latin.

For twelve days he was closely confined in a dungeon, ( au secrct) and permit- ted to see no person, not even iu the presence ofthe jailor ; hut after some interrogatories had been put, friends were permitted to see him, and he was allowed to write to his friends. It appears, that the police ordered the arrest of this gentleman merely upon suspicion, for the terrors of Government have now become extreme, and Englishmen of liberal opinions are above all others suspected of designs hostile to the dynasty of the Bour- bons? Our gallant countryman, Sir ROBERT WILSON, as our readers will perceive, was peremptorily ordered to quit Paris without delay, not because he had done or saul anv thing, that by any construction could criminate him— but because, as he was informed by authority, it was believed, that his residence in France would without anv active co- operation of his, form a rails ing point for the disaffected. It might be easily conceived that, after Sir ROBERT had aided in the escape of LAVALETTE. liis conduct while resident iu France would be strictly MARRIAGES.— At, the Manse of Kilmuir Easter, upon the 22d ult.

On the evening of Monday the 28th ult. a male child, of three days old, was laid down at the dooi ofa tradesman near Stonehaven ; but the unnatural mother had not reached the distance of half a mile, until she was discovered, and taken into custody. She was found to he an itinerant fishmonger, originally from the parish of Fordoun ; and' lifer crime is the less excusable, that she is married, and her husband aiive. It is worthy of remark, that she was delivered of the child in the parish of Strachan, on Friday Tait, and travelled with it to Stonehaven, a distance of 20 miles, on the - Monday following. After a suitable advice, and more sympathy having been shewn to her than she perhaps deserved; she was - allowed to depart with her infantile charge, the next day. On the evening of the 28t. h ult. three well- dressed stout fellows, between twenty and thirty years of age, carried off, from an Innkeeper's house in Cuminestown, su- ndry article?; and thereafter broke into the house of a neighbouring farmer, threatened to take his' and his wife's life, if their, money was not given up : they beat the poor man to the.- effusion of his blood ; but his' family being alarmed'/ the fobbers abruptly went away without effecting their - pur'po « « r •-- they had then a horse with" them, which it is likely they had stolen, not having one when at the Innkeeper's. They spoke the south country dialect; and pretended they were dealers in cattle.

The Paris Papers contain a correspondence between the Royalist General Eguia,-* and- the Constitutional Governor of Pa m pel una, Don Ramon Sanchez Salvador, in which the for- mer intimates his intention, if any of the Royalists suffer under a sentence of a Court Martial, of retaliating on such of the Constitutional officers as may be in his hands. It is to be hoped that the restoration of tranquillity by the submission of the Hoy disfsto the established government will render nuga- tory this sanguinary threat. In the French papers hints and conjectures are thrown out respecting the proceedings of the Congress, which do not ap- pear to be entitled to ranch credit. We are informed on autho- rity that the Emperor Alexander had " announced to the Congress of Verona his intention of entirely changing his system with regard to Turkey, and of employing means of force, to compel at last the barbarous Government of Constantinople to make con cessions." It is also reported in another paper that the dispositions ofthe Sovereigns at the Congress are of a nature to console all the friends of legitimacy ; it being their intention to . declare that the Cortes have to re establish Spain in its former constitution, and restore its King to liberty, if they wish to avoid a war ou- the parr of tlve powers." A short- time must disclose the real views of the Congress, and put an end to thes^ idle rumou/ s » sin HUDSON T. OJrE. We cooy the following explanation ofthe fracas between Baron Las Cases and Sir Hudson Lowe from a Ministerial Paper. .. It evidently comes frotp Sir II. Lowe himself: — About nine o'clock on Tuesday morning last, Sir Hudson Lowe had ordered a hackney chaise to the door of a house ia Paddington- greeiS, and Wasontlre point of entering ii, when bfe was rudely ran againstby a young person of slight short statute and mean appearance, who, instead of manifesting any concern at what occurred, immediately exclaimed, in a foreign accent. 4 What do you mean, Sir, by insulting me?' Or, 4 do jo.; mean to insult me ?' ' Insult.. you ! ' Sir II. Lowe replied, • Why, you ran directly up'against me !' The young person persisting, however, to talk iu the same strange manner, as if hardly in his. right senses. Sir Hudson Lowe, without farrier regarding him. proceeded to, step into the carriage, when he felt that a stroke had been, made, at him with a * mal, l wjiuv by the young man, who instantly withdrew out of his rericii. Sir H. Lowe, having an umbrella iu his hand, turned round and pursued him, with the intention of. striking him with, it, when a second person, apparently an Englishman, aixl a bystander, suddenly sprung forward between Sir 11. Lowe and theyonng man. and forcibly prevented i?. . SirlL Lowe, finding himself thus opposed, returned t# the- carriage, and was in the act of get ting into it, when the y# ung person came forward, with a card. in his hand, and Sr H. Lowe taking no notice of him, the card was thrown into the carriage, andinstantly flung back, w ithout being even looked at. Sir II. Lowe, had not, at this time, the slightest know- ledge or suspicion, who the young man w. as, and could1 not. conceive htm to be a gentleman. On his return to the house some time after, Sir H. L^ fuund that two cards had been picked up in front of the door, aud ou them was written the name of Baron E. de Las Cases Dog Tavern, Holywell Street. This young man had left St. Iltflena,. a mere boy, between five and six years before, and was i| ot la- the least degree recognisable by Sir it. j^ owe. It was alter wards ascertained, that both the young mafi and the person who had interposed to protect him tiad been lying in wait near the door for sometime previously, and even called, the preceding day at the house, to inquire for Sir II. Lowe*, refusing, however, to leave their names'. Sir Hudson Lowe now feeling. it had heen^ a premeditated at- tack upon.. him, arising out of thu performance of lift public duties— v> ewing. also the treacherous manner in winch he had- been assailed, without any previous notice being gfvfii of t^ name, quality, or motivas. of the jiscgA's& oFs— and having ground to believe the whole to be the eflVct of an; unprincipled r- juibina- tio. n, m « « de an immediate comtnunU; ation p;} the subj « rt to Go- ' vernment, and to the. proper legal authorities,, which led to a - warrant being issued for the app:\ Uvnvf the yoUpj Lus.
