Gentlemen who have lost their Hair, and have Ihe least Sigu of Roots of Hair remaining, by using re. girfarly, for a few Months, Prince's Improred Russia Oil, with ihe extra valuable Ingredient, will h- sure tu restore it, and produce n fine Head of flair, w hich Hundred*; have experienced. Even Medico1 Gen tlemen have ^ Wished, in the Gazette nf Health, tint Prince's Russia Oil is superior to any Oil for the Hair, and will do, in Cases of Baldness and wrak lluir, what can possibly he done. Ladies will find Prince's Russia Oil preferable to anv other Oil for dressing tbeir own or false fliir, as ii gives it « natural Gloss, softens and eurls it. Gen. tleihen wearing Powder ought to use il instead of PnniaPimt it also produces Kvebrnws, Whiskers, kc. and, through the extra Ingredient, it will now always keep ^ lensnnt in nil Climates.

Ladies and Gentlemen residing in the Country, mav be certain of having the Genuine Russia Oil by sending a Remittance to the Proprietor, it will be forwarded immediately by Coach. lt keetis in nil Climates ; the older the better.— Merchants and Capluins w ill receive a liberal Allow- ance for Exportation. Observe— There arc Trash Counterfeits selling in petty Shops for any small Price, but tbe Genuine is only sold in two Sizes, in 5s and 20s. Bottles. Mr. PRINCE respectfully acquaints Perfumers and Medicine Venders in llie Country, that they may be supplied with the Genuine Russia Oil, from any of tbe Wholesale Perfumers or Medicine Venders they deal with iij London, as the principal Wholesale Houses in London are Agents of bis ; nnd Mr. P. hns made such Arrangements as to enable Vhein to allow all Country Shopkeepers a good Discount. A Gentleman a Quiuzy had, and sorely it perplcx'd him; To peace a stranger night aud day, it wearied and it vex'd him ; Tbe Doctor <: ied bis utmost skill, his efforts were in vain. He only look away his fee, hut left behind the pain. Tbe patient was a man of wit, in dress extremely neat; But now, alas ! ' twas vain to dress hiin any thing to eat : He could not swallow physic, so distressing was his CUSP. He thought whene'er the Doctor came, death stax'd him in the face. The Barberjlie as usual ciime to ease him of bis beard, And having exercis'd his skill, the Barber dis- appear'd ; Exprewi'd his sorrow thus in pain a customer to find, BHI in his baste the Barber left his implements behind. A little nimble Monkey in tbe chimney- corner play'd, With cunning eye the razor, strop, and lather- box su- rvey'd; And looking in his Master's Boot, as bright ns any glass, Jack made a box of lather and then lather'd his own face. He strop'd the razor carefully, began to scrape bis chin ; But razors bleed as well as shave and Jack began to grin ; His Master could nnt help but smile to see what he was at And Jack, not liking much the pain, prepar'd to shave the Cat. The Cat shekick'd, and loudly sqnall'd— she scratch'd the Monkey's foot. But Jack continued fast his hold, and dragg'd ber lo the Boot. He lather'd Puss, he shav'd away — though painful was the joke. The Master burst into a laugh, and thus the Quinzy broke. That moment came the Doctor in, and lost in wonder stood, But said, with scientific smile, " My Physic's done yon good." " No, iw>," the Patient quick replied, " ynur Physic inay go packing, 4 The Bottle which has wrought my cure, is WAR- BEN'S famous Blacking."

VARM~ A letter from Hamburgh, of the 17th inst. has the followingWe have received, by way of Odessa, news from Constantinople of the ' 20th of September, of the following; tenor :— 4 Great un- easiness prevails here; the Turks have been defeated by the Persians near Erzerum. The great caravan has been plundered by the Wechab ites, who are advancing towards Mecca, and it is believed that the Pacha of Egypt will be obliged to withdraw his troops from Candia and Cyprus, in order to oppose them. The state of affairs in the Morea and in Thessaly, is still very critical. On the coast of Syria, a second earthquake has desolated the cities of Aniioch, Sidon, and Alexan- dria ( Little Alexandria, or Alezandrcttc, is pro- bably meant). Lastly, the Treasury is so exhausted, that the most rigorous Deerees against luxury have been issued by the Sultan. All silver plale must be brought to the Mint, where the owners receive a very low price for it. The Mahtnudies ; and Bodies ( coins so called), are called in, to be i recoined at a depreciated standard.* " j German Papers to the 23d instant, contain an arrticle uuder the head Trieste, giving a very de- j tailed account of the situation and strength of the Greeks in Epirus, Livadia, and the Morea. The j details are taken from a letter, dated Missolonghi, j the 25th ult. at which time that place vvas not only I in the possession of the Turks, but is represented as safe from an hostile attack. At that point the Greeks, it is said, were not acting offensively— Maurocordato being engaged in organising the military means of Aeharuania aud Etolia, and trying to eombine tliem with those of Albania. The letter admits the re- verses which the Suliots have sustained ; but says, that instead of being discouraged, they had rallied again in iheir mountains, and defeated the Turks in several attempts to dislodge them. It i3 stated that all the defiles and avenues leading to Arta, were occupied by tbe Insurgents. They had more over, occupied the passes into Thessaly, so that they apprehended nothing from the enemy on that side, where Chonrschid- Paeha had collected all the Turks capable of bearingarms, nnd concentrated them near Zeitoun. At Lepanto the Turks bad but a small gar- rison, having detached the greater part of their troops to the relief of Patras, \ vhieb was again seriously menaced by the Greek forces in the Morea. The Turkish fleet bad entirely disappeared from tbat neighbourhood ; nnd the Greeks were cruizing at the entrnnee of the Guiph of Lepanto, and stopping all supplies intended for Ihe use of the Turks in their different fortresses. The situation of the Greeks in tbe Morea is represented as most favourable ; but tbat Colocotroni could not, neyeriheless, e unbine his operations with those of bis countrymen in ' he otber provinces, till he had reduced Corinth and Mapoli di Romania. In Livadia the affairs of tbe Greeks are stated lo be equally flourishing A Turkish c.; rps, which had attempted to penetrate by the way of Zeitoun, bad been defeated with great loss ; and another attempt, made by a Turkish corps from the Negropont, had been equally unfortunate. This corps had advanced as far as Thebes, where il was beaten, and forced to retire ; but tbe Greeks, for want of dis- ciplined troops, were onao'e to follow up their advantages, and would, it is stated, be obliged to postpone the re- conqoest of ibe Negropont till fhe winter, when the Turks, as usual, would quit th* 1 field, and give tbeir ad versaijies au opportunity of taking aivunt- iy of their tmieii'jn. In short, the Greeks are described as having tbe superiority at almost every point; and, to crown their good fortune and good conduct, it is affirmed that tbey bad re occupied Thermopylae, iu su « h strength, as to pre- clude tbe possibility of the Turks forcing their way through them again.

PELICAN OFFICE, FOR INSURANCE ON LIVES / hut granting Annuities, LOMRARD STREET AND SPRING GARDEN, We regret to find, by the New York Papers, that there has been but little abatement in the ravages of the yellow fever. At the suggestion of the Board of Health, the Mayor of New York issued a Proclamation, on the 30th ult. extending to the lst of November the provisions of the Act for providing against infectious and pestilential diseases, lt appears, too, that at Pensacola, the fever still prevailed. The Claiborne ( Alabama) Gazette states, that the ( i Governor and Council transact their official business without the bounds of the town; the Post- office is removed ; the Paper ( The Florid tan) is suspended for the present; and, in short, the tow?) is almost aban- doned." DUBLIN, OCT. 2( 5.— Sentence of deprivation was actually pronounced against the Bishop of Clogher by the Lord Primate, on Monday. In consequence of the conduct of the individual cxcommnnicatcd aud driven into exile, the name of an Irish See will be changed from Clogfocr to Tyrone. ^ ipFIIS Office was established in the Year 1797, by a numerous and respectable Proprietary; and the Board of Directors, with Con- fidence, arising from the increased Prosperity and Permanency of tbe Establishment, as well as from tbe Experience of its Usefulness and Henefit to tbe Public, think it due to those who may be still unac- quainted with tbe Importance and Advantages of Life Insurance, briefly to suggest some of its leading and peculiar Recommendations to almost every Rank in Society. Life Insurance is of manifest Consequence to all who bold F'states for Life, Situations and Offices, Civil, Ecclesiastical, or Professional : to Officers in tbe Army and Navv, & c. as, by Payment of an Annual Premium, the Party insured is enabled to provide for Wife, Children, or others, whose future Welfare he may wish in vain, by other Means, to promote. It affords a permanent ultimate Security to those who advance Money upon Annuities or otherwise.

Partridge; Messrs. Smith k Parker; Mr. D. Hail. The Norwich Mercury says— u Much has been repeatedly said of the extraordinary expedition with which the communication is carried ou between the various parts of this kingdom. We have, however, to record an instance of expeditious travelling which exceeds auy thing of the kind hitherto heard of On Weduesday last the Day and the Times coaches started from London ; the former from the Spread £ agle, Gracechurch- street, and the latter from tbe Swan with Two Necks, Lad- lane, at ha'f- past live. They camc near each other shortly after they left town, and a trial of swiftness throughout the journey was the couse- qnence. The Times arrived at Norwich at half past five in the afternoon, and the Day at twenty minutes past five, having performed the distance in 12 hours, including all stoppages. It is sup- posed that in some part of the journey the coaches travelled at the rate of 20 miles an hour. While we mention this extraordinary rapidity of convey- ance, we cannot but express our disapprobation of the conduct of the drivers, who, for the mere gratitjeation of outstripping each other, thus wantonly risked the lives and limbs of their passengers. We trust, however, that thjs will be the last time we have to record s » ch a fact; or, if it be not, we sincerely hope that the Magistrates will take cognizance of such repetition, and re- strain, by the powerful arm of the law, a practice which the accidents daily occurring have not sufficient weight to put a stop to." MATCH TO NOTTINGHAM.— Mr. Ahernethy, the Amateur North countryman, completed his match to go to Nottingham from Kingsland, ou Wednesday, lt was to go the ground on toot, 246 miles, in 90 hours, for a bet of 100 sovereigns pu\ y ; and for another bet of 50 sovereigns, that he did 135 miles in 48 hours. He won both bets easily, and arrived at Kingsland on Wednesday one hour and ten minutes within the given time, and but little fatigued. This is beating the Powells, the Barclays, West, & c. by much odds. Mr. Abernethy travelled 140 miles of ground in the first two days, halting six. hours only. The following bet was gained the other week by Mr. Farquharson, of Finzean. That gentleman uudertuok to shoot, with one of his arms fastened to his body, and the assistance of a servant to load his fowling picce, ten brace of partridges between the usual breakfast and dinner hours, which singular operation he easily accomplished within that period, besides having killed an additional brace and a half of those birds, and five hares. It is said, lhat Sir Mark Syke< j has at present between 6,000 and 7,000 acvcs of land untenanted. A Morning Paper contains the following para- graph : " Our Readers will recollect lhat the great Mine cause, HOWE V. WOOD, which occupied the Lord Chancellor's attention, and our Chancery Repoit, so many years, was some months since dismissed out of Court, on the joint application of the parties, who had then agreed to refer their disputes. The parties have since been engaged in discussing their respective cases before the arbi- trators, Messrs. George Hathorn, D. Maclean, and H. Hunt, merchants of great intelligence and the highest respectability iu the City. The a- vard has just been made, and the result is, that Alderman Wood's claims against the plaintiff, Mr. Rowe, and his mine property, which have been variously staled at £ 50,000, £ 40,000, and £ 30,000, arc de- clared to be less than £ 1000,-— that Aldennan Wood and his brothers, Messrs. Philip and Bcnj. Wood ( who were made parties to the reference), are directed to pay certain proportions of the costs, amounting to about two. third*, and that Mr. Rowe will be immediately put iuto possession of this valuable property." GAS EXPLOSION.— On Sunday ni<; ht, about ten o'clock, a most alarming explosion of gas took place in tbe shop of Mr. Miller, shoe- jtfuker, Prinee's- street, Glasgow. During the day the inhabitants of the bouses above were annoyed by the noxious effluvia of tbe gas ; and having discovered that it proceeded from the shop below, tbe proprietor was got to eX « amine the cause ofthe gas escaping; but having imprudently entered tbe shop with a light, the gas instantly ignited and exploded with a dreadful con- cussion, overturning a large counter, demolishing every thing iu the interior, tearing up the floor, several pieces of which were forced perpendicularly into the roof, and knocking out the back simp- window with a tremendous crash. It shook tbe whole tenement ( consisting of five stories) very violently ; and the explosion was distinctly heard in tlie High- street. One of tbe gentlemen who entered tbe shop was slightly wounded iu bis band and foot; the others fortunately escaped unhurt. The Opera- house end of Pall mall was on Tues- day at noon thrown into tbe greatest consternation, hy a sudden and tremendous subterraneous explosion, that was more like lie discharge of heavy ordnance under ground than any thing else. AH the inhabit- ants in ihe fine new shops constituting the Opera- house Arcade, ami in the houses on the opposite side of the way as far as Cockspur- street, were instant- aneously out of their residences, thinking that their own habitations weie tumbling about iheir ears. Pall mall and the Opera- house Arcade were tmme » diatfdy filled with people, and ibeiralarui andaumzt* ment were not diminished on beholding an immense volume of ( lame, accompanied witb a strong smell issuing forth from the dilapidated front of the house belonging to the Westminster Wine Company," at the corner of the Opera house Arcade. The* shop fronts were completely blown from tbeir stations, and dashed ou the pavement in thousands of pieces; and within the premises there appeared nothing but ruins Three individuals hurried forth from tbeir preuices, presenting- an extraordinary appearance. One of them elevated bis hands, from which blood was copiously running ; the second had still a wilder and more extraordinary look, the hair on his head being singed uearly to its roots; and tbe third person, apparently oue of Ihe masters of tbe Westminster Wine Company, bad run from the premises on hear- ing the terrific explosion, and on beholding the shop windows and other fixtures blown from their stations wi'U the most frightful crash. The immense ex- plosion, and this sudden ruin, were the result of an accidental ignition of gas that had escaped from the gas pipes, owing to some defect in them, or lo the gas not having been properly u turned off," aud bad wholiy occupied tbe cellars under the Wine Com- pany's shop or counting bouse, at tbe corner of ihe Arcade. Tlieelerk and cellarmat) were proceeding to the cellar lo fulfil some orders, nud the approach of a lighted candle caused the ignition of tiie vast body of gas tbat bad escaped from the pipes and filled the cellars. The whole, of course, immediately exploded, and for a time left the two individuals almost senseless. Tbe ignited gas, in the progress of its expansion, beat down windows, doors, partitions, several hampers of bottles, all which were spread oil the cellar- floor* nearly shattered to pieces; and it thence made its way tip stairs to the floor which is even with the street, and dashed out the whole of the shop- fronts as already described, carrying with it ruin and terror. It could be compared to nothing but the fury and devastation of au earthquake. HOUSE OF INDUSTRY.— Wecopy the following from the Whitehaven Gazette, and if it wauls comment, the reader may supply it " Township of Whitehaven.— We are happy to have il iu em- power to state, that a very material saving has been effected in the expenditure for Ihe maintenance of the poor of this township during the last six months. The following is a statement of the accounts :— Total expenditure for the year ending 25t| i September, 1821, £ 2640, and for the cor. responding period 1822, £ 2121, being a reduction of £ 519. This strikingly shews the utility of a vigilant superintendence of public accounts." SALFORD.— At a Meeting of the Inhabitants on Thursday last, the Select Vestry presented if^ report ; in which it appeared the whole e. vi/ ense incurred by the Select Vestry for the last six months, amounted only to £ iw> 7. 10s. being a sum less than has been expended by the Overseers, in any six months in the same department, for tho last twenty years!— Manchester iercurt/. LIVERPOOL POOR.—- Decrease in the Rates, — On Friday last a Special Vestry was held in j Liverpool, at which a very interesting Report was I read, from which it appears that further consider- j able reduction has been effected in the public expenditure. After tbe Report had been read, Mr. Ellis, and Mr. Morrall, explained to the vestry a curious circumstance alluded to iu the Report. It appears that the parish have heen in the habit, for a long period, of paying to Government a sum exceeding £ 750 annually, under the denomination of a tax on places aud pensions, but. charged under the head of land- tax. The payment of this s on hqs been lately refused ; but the present Church- wardens, on application to them for the payment of it, instituted such an iuqiiry into the nature ofthe Charge, as led to the knowledge of its bein « - an unwarranted demand, that the tax had beeu^ can- celled by an Act of Parliament ate » r five and twenty years ago ; in consequence, that the parish have a claim upon Government for the sum of X'l^ OiJO and upwards, which they have paid on this account.-- The following is the result of the Expenditure : In- door Expenditure in the Poor. first 6 mouths of 18- 9, about £( i, 410 Ditto 182>, 5,540 Ditto 1821, 4,720 Ditto 1822, 3,9: < 1 Shewing- a total decrease in these items., six months of this year, as compared with tbo.

The Pari-; papers of Wednesday have arrived. The first conference of the Ministers ofvt, he four Powers of the Holy Alliance took place at Vkjrona on the 20th ult. i he i uke of Wellington was tiie only plenipotentiary of a Power not included*!! the aih-^ ace, who w as admitted to the conference'. The expectation seems to be pretty general onjlife Con- tinent, ihat the Congress will leave Spain untouch- ed, and that the general result of its deliberations wiil be of a liberal and conciliatory character. This happy disposition of the European Cabinets is attributed to the influence of England.— An extraordinary courier arrived at the British Embassy lti Paris, on the evening of the, 29th from Vcrotia, a id one was dispatch; d iu the cburse of the Same night by Sir Charles Stuart to that city. The intelligence from Spain is interesting, thougii the niditary operations of the two contend- ing parties have not yet beeu productive of any important results.

Several", agents appointed by capitalists in London and Paris were in Madrid for the purpose of making proposals for supplying the Spanish Government' with that sum, or different portions of it.

EXTRACT OFA LETTER FROM ELLESMERE. a Ou Friday last, the remains of Sir John Kyuaston Powell, Bart, were interred, in tlie Family Vault at llordley. It was the wish of the Family that r very thing should be couducted in as private a manner as possible, consistent with that respect which was due to the deceased.; and we understand on that account the offers of personal attendanc with carriages from a numerous and extensive circle were declined. But the feelings of our inhabitants were not to be suppressed. Every shop was shut, and universal gloom prevailed. A large number of persons on foot and on horseback ranged themselves at the gates of the Family Mansion, and fell in with the mourni. il procession, when it appeared. It was a scene of general sorrow. No man ever lived more beloved, or died more sincerely regretted. No man ever possessed iu a greater degree the power of attaching to him those Who had the opportunity of knowing' h from the gaol to tin drawn hv some wot a rig ture- his barouche, w hich w • ople.

RETRENCHMENT.— It is fully ascertained that Ministers are proceeding, from week to week, and from day to day, in their reductions ; that Com- missioners and others have been sent, and are sending, to every department of service at home and abroad ; and lhat these gentlemen are making 1 investigation into every branch of expendi- - into the work done— into the money paid— into the comparative necessity of the one, and into the due proportion of tiie other. The reports of these inquiries ere duly transmitted to the Lords of the Treasury, and then undergo a most elaborate examination, at which the first Lord of the Trea- sury frequently, and the Chancellor of the Exche- quer always, personally attend. Under this system of assiduous inquiry, ami attentive subsequent re examination with a view to the practical results, the amount of saving is stated as already very considerable; and, by the meeting of Parliament, will probably not be less than the amount of reduction on ihc commencement of the preceding Session. POSTAGE OF NEWSPAPERS TO INDIA — Several ofthe Papers having stated that the Post Oflice in Lombard- Street will forward newspapers It) India, at the rate of one penny per paper; it may be well to apprise the public that the Post- Office's in India will not" deliver a newspaper at any distance under half a rupee, or fifteen pence per paper— an oppressive tax that ought surely to be abolished, or ut least greatly modified.

FROM ANOTHER CORRESPONDENT. < l On 1' iiday mornirtf* last, the 1st inst. were deposited in the family vault, at Hordley, the mortal remains of that justly and deeply lamented gentleman, Sir John Kynaston Powell, Baronet, a faithful Representative of this County during 38 years.— It had been the expressed and particular wish of his Executors, that his Funeral should be conducted with all possible privacy ; no invitations therefore, were issued, even to the most intimate friends and acquaintance of tlie deceased. But there existed in the heart of every inhabitant of tho town of Ellesmere and of its vicinity, an enthusiastic feeling of gr- ateful respect and sorrow not : to be suppressed or satisfied, till it had formed a long array of mourners and vented itself in sighs and tears beside the g- rave of a Benefactor and a Friend. During' the morning of the melancholy day the windows of every shop in Ellesmere were spontaneously closed ; and an inviolable silence reigned in every division of the place. All ap- peared like an afflicted family bereft of a common father. As the procession advanced in slow so- lemnity through the little hamlet of Tetchill, it was received with deep and universal lamentation. By the way- side, and in tlie houses and cottages which thev passed, tfcc attendant train saw and heard nothing but one. expression of grief in frequent sobs and eyes suffused with tears. The On Tuesday, the29t. h ult. an Amateur Play was, enacted for the joint benefit of the National Schools and deserving Poor of Wem. For t- ome time prior to the hour of admission a crowded assemblage of elegantly dressed females occupied the area; and in a few minutes after the. doors were opened the Theatre was so completely filled, that many ladies were compelled to stand the whole evening,— yet general satisfaction seemed to beam iu every eve. Iu briefly noticing this performance,' we are at a loss to consider whether fhe object or the promoters deserve more praise. The Play announced was the EARL OF ESSEX, or the Unhappy Favourite. Mr. W. II . W. BETTY, the celebrated Young Roscius, and original projector of the undertaking-, sustained the character of Essex, excelling his usual style ; therefore any panegyric on this gentleman's acting would, be superfluous. He was admirably sup- ported, and never, perhaps, in the annals of Theatrical Representation, was an Amateur Play [ so well got. up. It would appear almost invidious to mention the excellence of any one in particular ; but in justice to Miss HALES, as Countess of Rut- land, she so well became the unhappy rival of her Queen, as to excite the sympathetic feelings of the audience. The other benevolent individuals who came forward personated with every effect their arduous though ehearful tasks, viz. Lord South- ampton, Mr. BARKER -, Lord Burleigh, Mr. SAX- TON ; Sir Walter Raleigh, Capt. DOOD ; Lieutenant of the Tower, Mr. J. Ti. GRIFFITHS : Queen Eliza- beth, Mrs. IJAI LAM ( of the Theatre, Oswestry, w ho very handsomely gave her services); Countess of\ Nottingham, Mrs. GRIFFIN ; Waiting Woman, Mrs. SHERIDAN. Between the Play and Farce, Mr. HALLAM introduced Two Comic Songs. The Farce of. . THE . WJE ATIIGJiicjocK follow e « | : Mr., BETTY as Tristram Fickle. Mr. BARKER'S BNEI'wi't was, to use his own often- repeated expression, " GOOD ;" whilst the sarcastic " Sneer" of Mr. SAX- TON drew forth applause. Miss HALES, in Variella, the Fair Quakeress, exhibited to admiration her versatility of talent: the whole concluding with universal peals of approbation, not without demanding- a repetition nf both performances for the following night, which were equally successful • and we are happy < o . understand the receipts of the two nights exceeded £ c0. The gaieties of the week were considerably en- h need by Mr. BETTY giving a Masqucd and Fancy Dress Ball on the Thursday following, at his house, where all the Beauty and Fashion of the neighbourhood were assembled. Lord HILL in the most polite mariner permitted his tent to be pitched, hich the tables were laid for 150. After : er, dancing re- commenced, and continued ... th unabated zeal till the votaries of pleasure were warned by Phoebus to retire from the gay scene. • WAMGS, BIRTH.

Frede- rick Anson, at Colwieh Church, on Wednesday last, by special license, the Baron de ltutzen, to tbe beautiful and accomplished Miss Phillips, daughter of the late Nathaniel Phillips, Esq. of Slebech Hall, Pembrokeshire, and sister to the Viscountess Anson.— The bride was attired in a superb dress and veil of Brussels lace. The Hon. Miss King and her sister assisted sis bride's- maids on the occasion. After the ceremony the company returned to Shugborough, and partook of a sump- tuous breakfast; after which the bridegroom and bride set off for Leamington. There were ten elegant, equipages in attendance, with a profusion of domestics in state liveries, decorated with large white favours. The . magnificence displayed at- tracted an uncommon concourse of people to the church. On the 22d ult. at Llanddewy- Aberarth, by the Rev. D.

We arc sorry to have to notice an awful circum- stance which happened between three and four o'clock on Monday, the 28th ult. at Llanrwst.— Whilst five or six women were assembled in. a bakehouse, in that town, the flooring of the room immediately above, in which a quantity of potatoes were stored, gave Way, which proved fatal to two of them, a mother and daughter. One woman was very much bruised, and the others received slight injuries. INSOLVENT DEBTORS' ACT.— At the ad- journed Quarter Sessions for Flintshire, held at Mold, on Wednesday, the 24ih of October last, Joseph H igginson, Farmer, was remanded for one year, to Flint Castle, for having put his detaining creditor to an unnecessary expense by a vexatious and frivolous defence to an action commenced against him. This, we believe, is the first instance of an Insolvent Debtor attempting to take the benefit of the Act, having been remanded for this cause, in this part of the country. Fox CHASE. The Montgomeryshire Fox Hounds, and a large field of sportsmen, met on Tuesday morning at Cornden, where they soon found, aud bad a most excellent run of above three hours, and over at least 30 mites of country, in the following direction :— The fox broke off from Cornden Rock, running to the end of the hill opposite Churchstoke— thence, by Mr. Maurice Jones's, of Broadway; to Pent re, & c.; he now took a direction for Wajcot Covers, but turning to the right, he passed close to Clun, and over the hills to within 3 miles of Knighton; here, however, he was run in to, and killed in gallant style after a view of two miles. The tradesmen of Sir W. W. Wynn dined together at the Thatched House Tavern, on Satur- day week, to celebrate the worthy baronet's birth day. The annual present of venison from Wynn- stay Park was sent, and the company, which was unusually numerous, spent a most happy day. eOiWlSarOs. Many of our historians having thrown much oppro- brium upon Edward 1. one ofthe g- reatest monarchs that ever swayed the British sceptre, by charging- him with the massacre of the ancient Bards,* any thing tending to remove so great a stigtna will, we doubt not, be alike gratifying to our Cambrian and our English readers ; and we are of opinion that, the annexed interesting extract from the Second Part of the History of Shrewsbury, by the Rev. J. B. Blakeway and the Rev. Archdeacon Owen, will place that part of our national history in its proper light. * It is thus noticed by Hume, on the authority of Sir J.

Although we had a tolerably large supply of Wheat lasl week, with 12,172 sacks of Flour, and arrivals by land. carriage samples fresh in this morning from Essex and Kent, the Wheat trade began extremely brisk, and Is. per quarter dearer than on this day week ; but after an hour or two it became rather dull, and that increase was with difficulty sustained. Fine Malting Barley is in good request, and sells freely at 34s.; but although higher prices were asked, they were not obtained. Oats sell freely at the prices of last week, the supply being considered not over large. In Beans, Peas, and Flour, there is no alteration.

CAMBRIDGE, NOV. 1— In our last we an- nounced lhal Lord Hervey and the Hon. Mr. Shore had declared themselves Candidates for the Representation of the University, vacant by tbe death of Mr. Smyth. On Saturday, the Solicitor Genera! arrived, and canvassed the Members of the Senate. On Monday Mr. Spencer Perceval also started for the same honour. On Tuesday the Speaker of tlie House of Commons arrived i at Trinity Lodge, ajpl offered himself to the University for the distinguished station of its Representative ; and yesterday morning Mr. Scar- lett and Mr. Robert Grant commenced a general canvass for the same important office.— In conse- quence of the Speaker being declared a Candidate, the Solicitor- General resigned; and we understand that Mr. Shore and Mr. S. Perceval have also declined the honour, on the present occasion. Tbe number of candidates is consequently reduced to four— namely, Lord Hervey, the Speaker, Mr. Scarlett, and Mr. R. Grant; aud the respective parties arc canvassing the University with un- prcccdent ed activity.

Welsh Bards, and, from a barbarous though not absurd policy, ordered them to be put to death." [ EXTRACT.] The massacre of the bards by Edward I. is a point so interesting in itself, and so important to the character of that great prince, that, though but remotely connected with our present subject, it may excuse a short digression. It was natural that at the time of their subjugation, and for the succeeding centuries during which they continued a proscribed people, that the Welsh should lend a willing ear to any report which reflected disgrace on the con- queror. But their histories afford no evidence of such a series of atrocious murders, as he must, on this supposition, have commanded. " Mr. Evans, in his specimens of Welsh poetry, has•' given a poem of Gwilym Ddu in support of this assertion. But we venture to cite this very composition in contradiction of it. The writer was evidently labouring under very great affliction ; but the grounds of liis complaint are, that his friends had lost their accustomed rank and emolu- ments, not their lives. ( I am deprived of daily support.'' f How naked and forlorn is our condition. We are exposed to anxious toils and cares. Our native bards are excluded from their accustomed entertainments.'' On the contrary, the poem implies the existence of the bards, though in a state of depression; His hero Gruffudd ' is deplored by the expert bards who have lost their festivity and mirth in the place where mead toas drunk.'' ' The bards of two hundred regions lament that they have now no protector* The office of the bard is but a vain and empty name? 1 Bards are no longer honoured; the palaces are no longer open.' But if they 1 st their mirth, their protection, and their honour, it is plain they were still alive: for no one in his senses would so speak ofthe dead, who lay on dreary Arvon's shore, Sinear'd with gore, and ghastly pale. In fact, so far were the bards from bein^ destroyed at this time, that our laws treat of them as an existing body more than a century after the period of which we are now speaking. In the ordinances of Wales 2 H. IV. it is contained, that the minstrels, bards, rymours and westours, and other Welsh vagabonds in North Wales, shall not henceforth be suffered to surcharge the country, as they have done, but be utterly forbidden, under pain of imprisonment for the term of one year.- j- " Mr. Horace Walpole, t though in his pert manner he talks of Edward's barbarities in Wales, and with his accustomed love of paradox endeavours Spring price of Wheat, per sack s. d. s. of 331 lbs 00 0 to 00 Foreign Wheat per bush, of 8 gall. 3 6 to 4 English Wheat, ditto " 4 6 to 6 Malting Barley, dilto 3 0 to 3 Mall, ditto..... 4 9 to 6 Flour, Fine, per sack of 2c. 2q. 51 bs 36 0 to 38 — Scconds ditto 30 0 to 33 Oats, Old, per 8 gall 2 3 to 2 BIRMINGHAM, THURSDAY, OCT. 31.

CORONER'S INQUEST.— On Friday last, an Inquest was held at Broomfield, in the parish of Montford, in llyis county, on the body of William Jennings, of Grafton, in the. parish of Fitz, black- smith, whieh was found suspended in an out- building at the first- mentioned place on Thursday last.— * fter an investigation of the circumstances, • he Jury returned a verdict of - • racy-—' Fhe deceased was a young man of good character? and the unhappy occurrence has caused much regret. considered this stain upon the king's memory as nothing more than a tradition. § The truth, we believe, is. that it rests upon the sole authority of Sir John Wvnn of Gwyder, who lived three cen- turies - after the supposed event, and inherited all the prejudices of his countrymen. The great king has, in like manner, been accused by the Scots of destroying the chronicles of that nation ; but from this charge he has been successfully vindicated by one of themselves.|| And the ancient Britons can now admit that the tradition before us rests oil insufficient grounds, being- attested by no historian of credit, and never alluded to by the subsequent bardic productions, which are many in number. * " Page 45. f " Ryiner viii. 184.

Many grain farms have lately been turned into pasturage.— Glasgow Courier. Cobbett attended at Weyhill fair, and addressed the farmers iu a raven- croak of an hour, at tbe close of which one of them shrewdly told him, " Master Cobbett, you are a double- faced fellow ; and we don't want your treasons to make matters worse than thev really are."

STOURBRIDGE RACES Were held on Monday and Tuesday, the 28th and 29th nit These races have been hitherto con- fined to pony matches and oilier minor amusements, but by the spirited exertions of some of tiie neigh, bouring- gentlemen, they took place this year under very different circumstances, and from the eclat with which they went off, and the liberal manner in which they promise to be supported, there is but little doubt of their being- permanently established upon a footing- which will advance them lo no subordinate rank with those at present held in the county. The following' was the result of each day's spoi l: — MONDAY.— A Sweepstakes of Ten Sovereig ns each, with Twenty- five Sovereigns added, for ail ages.— Two mile heats. Mr. F. Horn fray's br. b.

Tlie Match for £ 50, three- mile heats, between Mr F. Homfray's gr. h. Whitelegs, and Mr. John Amphlett's b. h. Blacklegs, was brought to an un- toward issue in favour of the former, in consequence of Blacklegs falling the first beat; fortunately both horse and rider escaped unhurt.

Warrior, aged 4 dr Snorting Kale outstripped her competitors with comparative ease; hut her claim to the Stakes is disputed, it being asserted lhat she had- started- for a £ 50 Plate, contrary to the conditions. The diversion concluded with a race between Mr. Webb's Tipple Cider, carrying- lOst. and Mr. Smith's br. m. Amelia, Sst. 21b. for a handicap of five sove- reigns each. But one heat only was run, which was won by Tipple Cider, and he consequently received the Stakes. The Stewards were R. Brettell, Esq. and. John Collis, Esq— John Pidcocke, Esq. and GeorgeGraze. brook, Esq are chosefi Stewards for the next Meeting-, against which time there are already four Stakes ( and thus early, fourteen subscribers), besides the Town Plate, We hear il is also in contemplation to have a Cup. The Earl of Stamford, Colonel Lygon, Thomas Hill, Esq. & c. are amongst the subscribers to the Racing Fund for next year. The scite of the Race Ground is Pedmore Common, pleasantly situated upon a gentle eminence, about a mile from the town, supplying a gallop of somewhat more than a mile, over excellent turf, and so disposed that the spectators have a view of nearly the whole ofthe rare; — the projected alterations will render it a Couise which, for its extent, will vie with most. AGRICULTURE.— Mr. Hal!, of LitjJe Marshall, near Exeter, in a letter in the Farmer's Journal, communicates the following results of experiments in sleeping wheat ami turnips : " A field of seven acres and a half, sown . with wheat on his estate last year, was reaped at harvest free from smut, the seed having' heen steeped fur eight hours in a solution of sulphate of copper, as re- commended by Sir John Sinclair ; while ei.. Ill acres sown oil a farm helonsiii « - to a friend of mine, who had his seed of me, and which was put iu by his hind without any preparation of sleepini;, was very much' infected with smut. " I believe llint the greatest means of avoiding- the attacks of the parasitic fungi, with w hich wheats" ke. are affected ill particular seasons, is to keep the'himi in high order, and us., ihe cleanest aud lie- t seed • for I conceive that Ihe system of Ihe plant ( perhaps from stagnation of growth) most be prepared by sickness of some sort to receive the ii. sid. ons co. mv • wiih this view, the steeping certainly trecon. es ail assistant as a preventive, for by rt, and lheskiniui'' all the light, partly eaten, and iefficient seeds, arj either skimmed off or de » lro> ed." " Salt.— On a field preparing for turnips this summer, two- thirds of which were fi., islo < l plough log, my hind sowed thesull intended for the cNv « siu..- thereby leaving one- third of the field o he ploughed* down, while the sail on the other part . ai merely harrowed in on the surtace, and which I always con- sider the best mode of application for turnips The turnips of thai pari where the salt rs uppermost h ue grown very ! y, while those on Ihe third part ofthe field, where the salt was turned under furrow, were eaten nil' l- v the beetle, and iiion- h on second sowing they have'grown, sli. l ih. i, .. rout!, is of a very different nature indeed to the ., tlior p ut of the held ; a few lows of Ihe first sown are e . mpielp all through the field, but tiie purl where the diHVr. ut application of the sail Occurred is discernible at any distance where tl. e field e„ n he seen.

To PUBLICANS.— A conviction took place at the Public- office, Birmingham, on Saturday week, of great interest to all persons connected with the sale of aie and beer. The defendant, Jackson, a pub- lican, was charged on two informations, with mixing strong beer with table heer after gunge had been taken by the officers of excise, by which he became liable to a penalty of £ 50 for each offence.— Mr; Clarke stated the facts of the, case, and called ihree excisemen to prove them. From their evidence it appeared, that one of the officers! was sent by ^ he other two to purchase at the house of the defendant a pint of what is commonly colled sixpenny, a species of ale formed by the mixture of strong and table beer. On calling for it at the bar, he was served from three separate cocks; and he immediately took if to his two companions, who were waiting outside the house, and who, upon lasting it, found it to he a mixture between the two strengths of I'quor, Hav- ing been served by the daughter of the defendant, he returned, and called for another pint, which was served him from the same cocks by the defendant himself. The officers then entered the house, and obtained ready admission from the defendant that fiie liquor just drawn was a mixture of ale and beer; they stated that they were excise officers, and, having made the necessary examinations in the cellar, informed him that prosecutions would ensue. On the purport of their visit being- known, the excisemen were somewhat roughly treated by some persons who happened to he in the house. Mr. Williams, for the defendant, Contended that the intention and meaning- of the statute in question was, as its preamble set forth, to prevent fraud being practised upon ihe revenue, and imposition upon the public; and he was prepared to maintain that not onfy was not fraud or imposition intended, hut that tho revenue was benefited by the practice complained of. There was, he said, a class of persons living in Birmingham, who were employed in very laborious offices; and who if tliey were io take strong drink, would not be able to do their work ; aud for whom, therefore, if was absolutely necessary that some liquor should be prepared ; a middling drink, which' would he more wholesome, and less likely to produce pernicious effects. The revenue was therefoie bene- fited, inasmuch as the consumption would be so much less, if no such medium drink could he sold. The Learned Counsel then produced ori order from the Board of Excise, which went to allow the mixing of strong beer with table beer, if the same were at the time carried off the premises of the seller, to be consumed in manufactories, workshops, & c. and how otherwise, he asked, could the mixture take place than as done by the defendant, and iu the manner complained of? A legal objection was also raised by the learned gentleman against the information, but it was overruled hy the Magistrates ( R. Spoonei', and H. Ho'den, Esqrs ) and the defendant was de- clared to lie convicted on the first charge, lie then pleaded guilty to the second, with an understanding thai if tbe present'conviction should be set aside hy tiie Court of King's Bench, the latter plea of con- fession should go for nought.— Mr. Williams said a few words in mitigation of the penalty, upon which the Court retired, and returning, gave its decision, that, in consideration of all the circumstances of the case, believing the defendant to have acted under a mistake, or a misapprehension of the act, the penalty was mitigated to its lowest degree, viz. £ 52. 10s. upon each information, and 10s. costs. An attempt was made some time since by the pub- licans of Birmingham, as a body, to obtain relief from the penalty of the excise laws as far as regards their mixing ale and beer in the draught for cus- tomers. A memorial Was presented through the Members of the County to the Board of Excise, stat- j ing the inconvenience and difficulty to which thev j wi re in Consequence exposed, and praying relief. This memorial was answered by a general letter from the Board, giving instructions to the officers, lhat in ! case u strong beer be mixed with table beer in the draught, to t> e drank or consumed on the trader's premises, such trader will incur the penally provided in such case; but tbat lhe penalty will not he sotioht for mixing-, ii if be mixed with table beer in the vessel produced by the person applying for the same, and conveyed at the tiuie by such person from the trader's premises, to be consumed in the manufac- tories or else where,"— The object of the publicans not being fully obtained by this order, inasmuch as they were still liable lo penalties if they mixed aie and beer to be drauk aud consumed ou their pre- mises, a further application was personally made to the Board by Mr. Lawley, accompanied tiy Mr. Unett, and the situation of the publicans was again verbal I v detailed to Lord G eorge Seymour, the Chairman, who promised to give further directions to ihe E\ eise Officers at Birmingham to permit the publicans' customers to drink mixed liquors iu their houses.

[ FK6M TIIE SPORTING MAGAZINE.] When considered as a hunting country, Warwick- shire certainly ranks next to Leicestershire; and a considerable portion of it to the eastward of the river Avon is equally good. Here it is bounded by Northamptonshire; and though, perhaps, taking it throughout, there may be more ploughed land in it than may be met with in that county, yet it is, for the most* part, a pleasanter, and a more practicable country to get over: and no man v. ho knows how to ride to hounds, and has a hunter under him, ought often to be stopped iu Warwickshire, which cannot he said f. o he the case in Northamptonshire. The ploughed laud in Warwickshire is chiefly of that Joomy nature, that whilst, from its general richness, it holds a good scent equal to, if not better than, some grass countries, it does not, with a few excep- tions, stick and stop horses, as colder clay laud does. When we consider that the Warwickshire country reaches from Hook Norton, in Oxfordshire, to Newn- ham, the seat of the Earl of Denbigh, within three or four miles of Lutterworth, iu Leicestershire, a distance of forty miles, aud when we look at the magnificent vale it is composed of, the coverts that are interspersed in it, and all olher advantages attending it, no unprejudiced person can deny that jt is as fine and as fox- hunting a country as a master of a pack of fox hounds can reasonably desire. It not only contains a large space of champaign coun- try which, w ith a good fox, must shew a run ; hut oii the outskirts of it, and which are only made use of for thai purpose, there are some of the finest coverts iu England for cub- hunting, and which are never without foxes. Indeed, a blank day in War- wickshire, when fairly hunted, would not happen twice in three years ; which can be said of few other countries. It is a long time since Warwickshire has been without hounds. The first pack that I can recollect in it, when 1 was a boy, was Mr Ward's, who occa- sionally hunted some part of the Stratford country, at the same time that he hunted Oxfordshire. liis kennel was at a small village, called * New bold,' live miles from Shipston on Stonr, and six from Stratford. It was on his declining Oxfordshire, and taking to Northamptonshire, in the year 1791, that Mr. CORBET took possession of Warwickshire, and continued to hunt it, with the greatest success, until the year 1809, when he resigned it in favour of Lord Middleton, who gave it up, the year before last, in consequence of a" fall thc preceding season ; and it is now huuted by a subscription pack, of which Mr. Shirley, of Eatington, is at the head. Although it cannot be mid that lie hunted War- wickshire for thirty- one years, yet as it was in the year 1778 that he first hunted the Meriden country, together with Staffordshire and Shropshire, Mr. Corbet and bis hounds may be said to have been k flown in Warw ickshire for that period of time ; and I have reason to believe lie was a master of fox- hounds upwards of forty years without ever having had a guinea subscribed to them, with the exception of five" pounds a- year by each member of the Strat- ford- Hunt Club, " to reward the earth- stoppers of the country. I recollect hearing him say he had kept hounds longer at his own expense, than any man had done before him. Succeeding to a fine estate, Mr. Corbet went abroad after having concluded his education, and returned to his native country, a finished gentleman of the old school. To the last year of his life, he was remarkable for the neatness of his person, and ex- tremely gentleman- like appearance. His manners were peculiarly adapted to a man at thc head of a pack of fox- hounds, being civil and obliging to the whole field, and particularly so to the farmers, by whom he was so much respected, that the destruction of a fox, by foul play, was never heard of iu War- wickshire, iu his time. This celebrated fox- hunter, it seems, was first entered to a hare; having, when be came of aot>„ been iu possession of a remarkably clever pack of harriers, which, just before he married his first wife, he converted into a pack of fox- hounds; aud com- mencing with tbe country about Shrewsbury, then given up hy ihe late Lord Berwick, he ci'ept, by degrees, first, into the Shi final country, previously hunted by the late Sir Kdward Littleton— then to jihenstone, under the patronage of Lord Berwick; and so on to Meriden— finding himself in possession of an extent of country, of nearly seventy miles, runnino- parallel with the old Roman road. Some years afterwards, this country was divided between " the Earl of Craven, Sir Richard Puleston, and the Mr. Ward, as before prove, lie had lost bis hounds one day, as also had a friend of mine who was out with them; and as he was riding in search of them, lie was passed by Mr. Corbet at a pretty slapping pace, when he exclaimed, 44 Pray, don't ride over the hounds, you will only spoil your own sport." The hounds were not within five miles of him at the time! It vyas wonderful, nevertheless, how he would make his appearance at the end of a run, without perhaps ever seeing a hound, as lie would not ride over the fences.— In society Mr. Corbet was a cheerful and entertaining companion.. Dun jig many years lhat Mr. Corbet hunted in Warwickshire, he rented a house within a mile of Stratford- on- Avon, called Clopton House— a sub- stantial old mansion, suitable to his large establish- ment ; hut his hounds and. horses were kept in the town of Stratford. When the country round Shrews- bury was vacant, which often happened, Mr. Corbet began the season there ; but never failed being iu Warwickshire by the 5th of November, on which day, if not on a Sunday, his hounds met at some favourite covert. A day'or two previous to this, the Hunt races took place in Warwickshire, which gene- rally afforded sport. Exclusive of the different stakes, several matches were made by the members of the Hunt; and Mr. Corbet gave a plate to be run for by the farmers, which they were proud to win — not more for the value of the plate, than for the sake of Iiim who gave if. All hough Stratford. oil- Avon has been, for many years, the head. quarterspf the Warwickshire hounds, it is situated quite at the outside, and in the worst part of what is called the Stratford country— and were a person to form an idea of Warw ickshire, as a hunting country, by travelling through that place on his road from Birmingham lo Oxford, he would have no favourable opinion of it as a sportsman. Scarcely any thing but a deep ploughed land, and' large woodlands, are to be seen, and he would little suspect that lie were within so short a distance of as fine a grazing district as England can boast of. This, it must be observed, is all ou the other side of the river Avon, and which he wouM'see nothing of. Ploughed and wood- land, however,, as this part of the country is, it affords excellent'sport. It is uo unusual thing to find a fox within* two or three miles of Stratford, and to kill hrm in the Pytrhley country iu Northamptonshire— to get'to which he must pass through the parishes of Kiueton, Geydon, Chester- ton, Itchington, Ufton, had brook, Southam, Worm, leighton, or Shugborough, See. & c.; which are, for the most part, composed of grass fields, of from thirty to one hundred acres each, with practicable fences, and no river to interfere; and fastidious must that man be, who can find fault with such a country. When we recollect that it is always well supplied with foxes, and that the Stratford drawj, in this direction, reaches to Ladbrook Gorse, within two miles of Southain, on the left, ami to Wroxton Abbey, within' three miles of Banbury, on the right, nothing more need be said in its praise. It may not, perhaps, be amiss to mention one circumstance, in corrobora- tion of what has been said on this subject. It was usual with Mr. Corbet not to fix one of hrs prime places on a Saturday. It was the market- day at Warwick, and he had a consideration for the yeomen and farmers of the county, whose business obliged them to attend. The fixture, on the day I allude to, was Farmborough, the seat of Mr. Holbeeh. There was a large party slaying at Stratford at the time; but several of them declined going— saying, it was a long way, and a had place when they got there. I was amongst the number who went, and we killed our fox twelve miles point blank from the place we found him, without meeting with more than one ploughed field, which was just at the last. The circumstance is impressed on my recollection hy an observation from Sir Grey ^ ipvvitb, who, on coming to it, said, 44 I will skirt" this, however, for we have not had a ploughed field yet." So much for a bad fixture! On thc western side of Stratford, verging towards Worcestershire, are Spernal Park, and the magnifi- cent woods of the Marquis of Hertford ; very ser- viceable in a country, but only used here in cnb- hnntiiig, although liie former place is sometimes made a fixture, aud now and then has afforded a run. On the Sbipston or south side are numerous good coveiIs, and certain fields— such as Alveston pastures, Idleeote, Mr. West's and Mr. Canning's coverts, & c.; as also Weston Park, near Campden, in Gloucester- shire, a capital scenting cover, but now made neutral with Colonel Berkeley. About six miles to the left of that, close to the four- shire stone, on tlie Wor- cester and London- road, is the well- known Wolford Wood, which has produced so many brilliant runs, and is always honoured with attendance from the neighbouring hunts, and very often with some Ox- ford- men, although twenty- eight miles from Oxford. On the left of Shipston- on- Stour, between that place and Banbury, is what is called the Edge- Hill country, consisting of Hook Norton ( now neutral with the Duke of Beaufort), the renowned Epwell White House,* and several other coverts on the hills ; when, extending around the oulside of Sir Thomas Mostyn's country, and embracing the hang- ing coverts of Lord Northampton and Mr. Holbech, on the side of them, it descends into that fine grazing district, before mentioned, geographically termed 44 the Plain of Warwick." So much for the home- country, or what is called 44 the Open." The name of a woodland country is a damper to many ; hut the Warwickshire woodiands are snch as are seldom, if ever, met with. In Mr. Corbet's time the hounds always went three or four times in the season to Meriden, for the purpose of hunting what is called 4 the Meriden country,' aud brilliant sport generally attended them. Although the coverts here are large, they are so peculiarly situated, that it is no uncommon occurrence to see a run of ten or twelve miles au end in this country, and so good are the foxes, that they generally skirt the coverts; or if they go into them, they will not turn right or left; and they are generally easy to get through for horses. The fences here are larger than in the Stratford country, and from the hedges being often placed ou a bank or cop, are not to betaken in stroke, from which circumstance a horse has been styled a good or bad Meriden horse, in proportion as his temper would accommodate itself to the nature of them. A good creeper here is useful ; as, indeed, he is every where else. It is almost needless to observe that Meriden is an inn by the road side, six miles from Warwick and twelve from Birmingham. Here Mr. Corbet had a kennel; but when Lord Middleton hunted tbe country, his hounds lay at the beautiful village of Keuilworth. The Meriden country commences within four miles of Warwick ; and taking Coventry for the centre, extends almost to the town of Birmingham on the left; then joining Lord Anson's Atherstone country, comes round on the right by Corley, Combe Abbey ( Earl of Craven's), Nevvbold and Nevviiham ( Earl of Denbigh's"), within three miles of Lutter- worth, in Leicestershire, where, leaving Rugby and Dunchurch a short distance on the left, and taking iu the coverts of Sir Theophilus Biddulph, at Bir- bnry, it proceeds to join the Stratford country, in the parishes of Ufton and Long Itchington, aud so on to that fine grazing district already described ; so that it has more than once happened that a fox found in the Meriden coimtry has led the hounds home to their kennel at Stratford. With the. exception of Leicestershire, and that always must be excepted, Warwickshire is the finest hunting county in England. The extent of it ex- ceeds any that I have ever seen, or heard of, and the preservation of it, when Mr. Corbet hunted it, was unequalled. In short, it might have been called a preserve of foxes. Independent of tbe resident 1 noblemen and gentlemen of fortune, well. wishers to . fox- hunting, the Warwickshire yeomen and farmers aie, for ihe most part, sportsmen, and numbers of them attend the hounds when within their reach. The Stratford Hunt Club, when he entered on the country, was held at the White Lion Inn, at Strat- ford- oii- Avon, and the members of it dined together every other Thursday during the season. It was composed of the principal sporting gentlemen resid ing iu Warwickshire, including several others from the adjoining counties, who made Stratford their bead- quarters during the winter. Although the club only met once a fortnight, there were always some members of it slaying at Stratford, for whom dinner was provided in the club- room, which was always kept for this purpose; aud these gentlemen generally partook of Mr. Corbel's hospitality in the course of the week. In honour of the immortal Shakespear. the room tjbey lived in was called 44 The Tempest/' Tbe walta were decorated with some sporting pic- tures, and over the fire- pjqce, enclosed in a glass- case, was the head of the famous old fox, which, in the year 1794, afforded an extraordinary run before Mr. Corbet's hoynds, having been found at Wolford Wood, and killed near lo Cheltenham, after a run of upwards of twenty miles, as tiie crow would fly. A few lines on the side of the glass- case, comme- morate the circumstance, stating the names of the chosen few who were in at tlie death ; amongst whom was Mr. Corbet, 4k who taily- ho'd him a few minutes before he was killed." Never having been what is called a straight- for- ward rider, Mr. Corbet's name appearing in so enviable a place at the end of this brilliant run, when all but eight out of a field of two hundred sportsmen were defeated, has with some been a matter of surprise, and with others has taken away the credit of the thing; but, with those who have witnessed the extraordinary manner in which himself and some others would contrive to keep in what may be called " the wake" of hounds, without ever taking a fence, and get up to them at last, the surprise will cease: and particularly so, when they consider that the country ( the Gloucestershire hiHs) which this fox went over was a light country ; and, mounted as Mr. Corbet always was, on the best of horses, and the fences broken before he got to them, it was by- no means improbable but that a horse might live under his light weight during the whole of this tremendous run; whereas he might not have gone half the distance, ha^ l he been ridden in the front for tbe first ten miles. All, however, that at this distance of time we ca\ i say on the subject is, to repeat the words of the bard of Epwell, as applied to this dis- tinguished foxj- hunter, on the Epwell run — " How he IJved to the end of this terrible day, The muse ^ either wishes nor ought she to say : That he t< aw it, is clear— What more could old Meynell ? A nd witness'd th' effects of his care in the kennel." From the great respect and regard that 1, in common with all who hunted with him, entertained for this veteran sportsman, I could fill a volume in recounting his praise; but I shall proceed to the description of his hounds and his establishment— only lamenting that time, the destroyer of all earthly pleasure", should have deprived his friends of so kind- hearted and so gentleman- like a man, and the sporting world of such a pattern to all masters of fox- hounds, as Mr. CORBET, of SUNDORNE. On his giving up his hounds, a magnificent silver vase was presented to him by the Warwickshire sports- men, in testimony of their gratitude for the amuse- ment he had afforded them. Mr. Corbet's hunting establishment was upon a very considerable and a most respectable scale. He had always from sixty to seventy couple of hunting hounds in his kennel, which he divided into a pack of dogs, and a pack of bitches. The general opinion of these hounds was, that the bitches were the fastest, but that the dog hounds hunted a lower scent. No man had a better stud of hunters than Mr. Corbet, generally consisting of from sixteen to twenty, and they were horses of the right stamp— they were well bred, with substance. Instead 0f breeding them-- a very precarious mode of obtaining hunters— he annually purchased three or four year- ling colts from his tenants or neighbours, and, by selecting those of power and bone, he seldom failed fo keep up his stud, without putting his hand into his pocket for them,— nothing in the shape of a hunter being to be purchased in his neighbourhood under from one hundred to two hundred guineas, SHROPSHIRE horses, however, have deservedly, home a good name. The blood of Old Suap, Regains, Revenge, Tommy, Minister, & c. is scarcely extinct, and their places have been supplied by some excel- lent stallions, sucb as Sultan, Transit, and others equally good ; ami to this day the dealers keep a sharp look- out for Shropshire horses, For the first five or six seasons, Will Barrow, his huntsman, rode two strapping chesnut horses, purchased in the way I have described. One was by Revenge, and the GAMBLING IN LONDON. other hy Tommy. They were equal to about four stone more than Will's weight, and being perfect fencers, flying and standing, it is needless to say, that, with such a horseman on their hacks, they were not easily stopped. His other horses were also of the first class. It may be expected, that having mentioned Will Barrow as a horseman, I should also speak of him as a huntsman; be having hunted Mr. Corbet's hounds upwards of fifteen years. The author of Waverley tells us that any man may be an adept at field sports. Now, whether this gentleman appreciates other people's abilities by his own, or whether he puts huntsmen out of the question, I will not pretend to say, but certain it is, lhat a good huntsman is a scarce article; and when we enumerate the quali- fications required by Mr. Beckford to make one, we ceose to be surprised that an union of these quali- fications in one man— and that an uneducated man- is not often to be met with. Whether Will Barrow was a good one, I will not take upon myself to deter- mine all that 1 shall say of him is, that Mr. Corbet's bounds were remarkable for brilliant, and decisive runs, w hilst Will Barrow hunted them, and I always 44 praise the bridge that carr » e* me safe over." celebrated Colonel Wardle; „ . stated, occasionally limiting part of Warwickshire. * In the year 1809 this placeafforded a tremendous Mr. Corbet subsequently look possession of War- run with Mr. Corbet's hounds, when the fox was wick: bire, aud conlinued iu it till the period above killed full twenty miles from the place he was found, alluded to. It gave birth to a poem by Mr. Edward Goulburn, Although no man performed the duties of life more called 44 Epwell Hunt" ( somewhat in the style of the correctly than Mr. Corbet, yet he was wrapped up I 44 Billesdon Coplow" poem by Mr. Lowtli), in which ju his hounds. His mind was with them, although I he gave a most humourous, but faithful description coiporeallij absent; as the following anecdote will of some of the principal performers of the day. A County Meeting has taken place in Lanark- shire, at which the Duke of Hamilton presided as Chairman, for considering the state of the agricul- tural interest, and of the several questions sup- posed to be more immediately connected with it. The Resolutions went no further than to the state- ment of one oi- two self- evident truths, and to proposal that the landed interest throughout La- narkshire should be prepared, through the media of Committees and Reports, to consider the busi. ness more fully hereafter. The Duke of Hamilton recommended— 1. That landlords should syinpa thise wilh their tenants, and effectually reduce their rents; and, 2dly, That Ministers should sympathise with Ihe landlords, and diminish the public expenditure. Thomas Wood, Esq. of Littleton, in the county of Middlesex, Lord of the Manor of Middleham iu Yorkshire, finding it inconvenient, from his advanced years, to visit his tenantry at so great a distance, lately requested his son, Colonel Woodv to go down and inquire into the circumstances of his Yorkshire tenants. The Colonel, after politely calling upon every tenant at their respective homes, invited them all to partake of a dinner with him, at the White Swan Inn, in Middleham ; when, on his father's health being drank, the Colonel begged to assure them that it was his father's wish, and his own, that mutual confidence should ever be maintained between landlord and tenant, and that he was disposed, as far as he was able, to assist his tenants who were struggling with the difficulties ofthe times; and, for that purpose he generously directed his agent at Middleham to return every tenant 20 per cent, out of the ensuing payment of thc Michaelmas rent. The Exeter Gazette says-—" We have heard from various sources that a Noble Lord of exten- sive landed property in the county of Devon has reduced the. rents of his tenants, from 20 to 35, and even 45 per cent.; in several instances his Lordship, with a liberality which no eulogium can do justice to, has given up arrears to the amount of hundreds; to one tenant, who could raise only £ 400 where £ 700 was due, his Lordship direchd his steward to give a receipt iu full. VVe shall make further inquiry, and if we find it correct, shall feel the highest gratification in giving to the Public the name of this noble- minded and generous landlord." A tenant of the Right Rev. the Lord Bishop of Chichester went to the Episcopal Palace a few days since, to pay his rent. The sum was £ 250, and at the time the payment was accompanied by the usual remark of the hardness of the times, which was answered by his Lordship's desiring him to refresh himself, and to see him again, when the generous Bishop presented him with £ 100. It is said that Alderman Heygate has deter- mined not to be behind any of his predecessors in the splendour of his liveries during his Mayoralty.

One of the paddle wheels, of fifteen feet in diameter and eight in width, will, if perfectly air tight, sustain above water upwards of 300 men, or 601bs. to every cubic foot; consequently the three wheels would keep above water all the passengers, crew, & c. till 6ome assistance couhj be rendered them. We have recently had several times occasion to mention the energy with which the supporters of those sinks of infamy and ruin, the gaming houses, have been brought to exposure and punishment. The following cases, tried last week, display the frightful consequences attending the fatal infatua- tion of play. Two other actions against different gambling- houses stand in the paper for trial; and it is said there are no less than 21 of these Hells in Piccadilly, Jermyn- street, Bury- street, King- street, Bennett- street, St. James- street, Pickering- place, Cleveland- row, Oxendon- street, and Leices- ter- street. Here, then, is work for a whole winter. Private vengeance has, it is said, been the moving power in most of thc recent prosecutions; if so, the Police has still a large arrear to bring up. The proprietors of one made, at a certain period, it is said, upwards of £ 100,000, in one twelve- month, and, it is asserted that by the arrangements now made among the gambling fraternity, there is no hour of day or night throughout the year, at which the work of depredation ceases. One of the most infamous of these HELLS, or Gaming- houses, is under the very eye of Majesty, and absolutely overlooks Carlton Palace. There is said to have been deeper play in this incor- rigible den, during the last ten months, than in any other similar establishment. There are, it is stated, several partners in this bank; and one of them may, it is said, be seen daily prancing about the streets, on a fine blood horse, attended by his groom. Another partner, it is understood, was recently tried at the Old Bailey, for a capital offence, and now lies under the sentence of death in Newgate. COURT OF KING'S BENCH, OCT. 26. CARTER, ASSIGNEE, V. ABBOTT AND OTHERS. This was an action brought by the plaintiff, as assignee of Moses Abitbol, a bankrupt, to recover certain money had and received by the defendants, Abbott, Hoidsworth, and Davis, to the use of the ba nkrupt. Mr. Gurney addressed the Jury. The plaintiff' in this case was, as they had heard, an assignee, who availed himself on this occasion of a very salutary law, to recover hack money which the bankrupt had lost at play, and apply it to the benefit of his creditors. By the 9th Ann. c. 14, any man who had lost money ai play, to the amount of more than £ 10 at a sitting, might recover it back from the winner, by an action within three months from the period of his loss. Un- happily Mr. Abitbol, the bankrupt, had been infatu- ated by that dreadful passion for gaming, which rendered all the ordinary enjoyments of life insipid— which misfortune only served to heighten— and which almost certainly led to the utter ruin of its miserable victims. The defendants were the keepers of one of those infamous establishments, where that passion was inflamed to madness ; they were among those peets of society, who, while cool, deliberate, and cautious themselves, fed and excited the fever in the bosoms of the inexperienced and the young; who profited by their intoxication, and took advant- age of the wrecklessness of their despair. They were now called on to restore a portion of those sums of which they had despoiled this unhappy bankrupt, under that wise provision which the jury would have peculiarsatisfactioa in enforcing. The commencement of the action having been shown, evidence was given to establish the right of the plaintiff to sue, and the competency of Mr. Abitbol to prove his losses. It appeared by docu- mentary evidence, that all the creditors who had proved their debts under the commission had released him from future liability ; while, on the olher hand, he had released Carter the plaintiff, so that he could derive no benefit from the verdict, even iu case of a surplus. Messrs. Scarlett and Pollock denied that the wit- ness's competency was thus restored, and The Lord Chief Justice said, that he entertained doubts as to the effect of the releases on the future property of the bankrupt; but the safer course would be not to decide either point at nisi prius, but to take ihe evidence, subject to the objections here- after to be brought before the Court in a special case. Moses Abitbol, the bankrupt, was then sworn after the custom of the Jewish nation, on the Old Testa- ment. He gave the following statement:— I have carried on business as a merchant, and know the defendants Abbott, Hoidsworth, and Davis. In 1820, they kept a house No. 5, King- street, St. James's, for gaming. Rouge et noir was played there. All thrtv aeied in the eonduet of the play. They kept a bank, against which the visitors played. The bank in such case puts down a number ot notes under a lead, and pays from thence when it loses. When it won, the large notes were often put aside, and a large number of small ones in another heap. Any sum might be staked from 5s. to £ 100, and, on some occasions, more. The play was from nine in the evening till two; sometimes the bank left oft'before the usual time ; always when they were considerable winners. On many occasions, they withdrew the large notes from the bank, which enabled them to leave off earlier than usual. Nineteen times out of twenty the bank won by the advantages ofthe game, and the intoxication or insanity of the visitors. Wine aud spirits were always on the table free ; sometimes French wines. The bankers always kept themselves sober. Two or three days before November. 1820, I met. Hoidsworth ; he invited me most particularly to the house, where I had previously lost large sums; and on the 3d of November 1 went. I played ; all the defendants were present; Hoidsworth and Davis dealing, and Abbott giving directions, I lost £ 870, having carried in £ 1,000, and had only £ 130 left. I said to them 441 was unlucky at your house before, and I was wrong to come now." Oh the 21st of the ; same month I went there again, taking with me be- tween £ 300 and £ 400, large notes, to the amount of £ 300, and small notes to nearly £ 100. Hoidsworth and Davis were there, but I am not sure as to Abbott. I lost £ 300, and some small notes. On the 27th, I went again, and lost £ 440 at the least. I said to oue of them I would play only £ 200; he gave tne a £ 200 note for small ones, which he said he had won from Major Aubrey. When I paid £ 250,1 said, 44 There is ill luck again j" 1 changed the £ 200 note, and lost it. Cross- examined by Mr. Scarlett.— I have the honour to be an African by birth. I have visited Paris. I never had any connexion with a gambling- house ; but I bought a government security for £ 1,000, on a house of this kind, which gave me no interest in its success. I played a great deal at Paris, and lost on the balance. This was after I was a merchant ; I never played till I had been eight or nine years a merchant; 1 am now about thirty. I have'lost £ 30,000 or £ 40,000 more than the actions are brought for. All the defendants have proposed to me to negoeiate with the creditors. I went last night to Abbott's house with the Attorney for the plaintiff. I have been twice before, in consequence of Mr. Holdsworth's negociation, who desired me to propose £ 740 or £ 750 to the creditors. I read a letter to the defendants on lhat occasion : it was written to me by Mr. Rickson, refusing the proposal. I never read a letter agreeing to such proposal. I proposed to take one thousand pounds, subject to the approbation of the creditors. There are three other actions by the assignees against other houses. Only one action brought by myself or assignees against a gaming house has heen settled. Before my com- mission [ received a sum from a house where I had lost money as a loan, and which they would not let me have without a release. In the lock- up- house I received £ 10 from a person named Hett'ernian. I have won £ 1,300 or £ 1,400 in a week at one time ; but I lost it in one night. 1 have received £ 30,000 or 40,000 iu commerce, and lost it in plav. Since my bankruptcy 1 have played at no gambling house in London ; but I have lost some trifle. Perhaps I may have lost £ 150 since my bankruptcy. I have made several thousand pounds since, and received several from my father; I have paid several of my creditors, and, please God, mean to pay all. In 1810 I assigned my effects to secure my creditors. At that time I stopped for £ 50,000; my creditors have re- ceived several shillings in the pound, and have large claims. Mr. Coles, of Tower- street, and Mr. Cohen, of Ang- el- court, were the Trustees. My business used to bring me in £ 10,000 a year during the war. Re- examined— My creditors are receiving still. Aldridge and Mazinghi were the defendants in the compromised action. Jewels and money were claimed of them. They delivered up the jewels, and paid above £ 1,000. These have been received by my assignees for the benefit of my creditors. Neither in that nor any other action have I a farthing interest. Mr. Alexander Lee examined by Mr. Puller— I know tbe house No. 5, King- street, St. James's. I have been there w hen play at rouge et noir was going on. I know the defendants, who appeared as the conductors of the bank and play. Robert Dunkin examined by Mr. Wylde.— I have not for four years been in the employ of Evit and ftickson. In November, 1820, 1, having gone myself to play, saw Mr. Abiibol at the house of the defend- ants. I saw him there four times. On one occasion he seemed, to lose £ 700 or £ 800. This was the case on behalf of the plaintiff. Mr. Scarlett addressed the Jury for the defendants. Every sentiment expressed by Mr. Gurney in his eloquent opening had his entire concurrence. Happy would it be for human nature if it were possible, by manners or by laws, to eradicate the vice of gaming from the heart; but it was too much thus to excite prejudice by general declamation on gambling against these unfortunate defendants; when the game they played, rouge et noir, was one of the fairest games of chance— fair, indeed, it was, compared with the lottery ; while that vast game, the most dis- advantageous and unequal in the world, was super- intended bv the Government of the country. If, therefore, Mr. Gurney's discourse had been reserved for another place— if he could have persuaded the Legislature to practise his precepts by tbe abolition of the lottery, he would have rendered an important benefit to the public morals. The Lord Chief Justice— Surely we have nothing to do with the lottery here : the simple question is, whether this person has lost his money to the defendants. Mr. Scarlett— Certainly; and this was his very object— to shew that these general topics did not belong to the cause; that they bad no place here; that no men— at least in a court of justice— ought to create a feeling against individuals for gambling on a small scale, while gambling on the most magnifi- cent scale was a part of the system of Government. Never, never, let any one blacken others with the imputation of this vice, until he could proudly stand up and say that he belonged to a country where there was no law to tolerate or to sanction it. Gaming was indeed a deadly passion— not confined to cards or dice— for sometimes judges and jurors were made the counters to carry on the game. So it was here, where all the complicated machinery of the cause only tended thus to degrade them into the instruments of the most unfair of games. Here was an assignee without interest ; creditors without interest; a bankrupt without interest; all anomalies reconciled ; for the purpose of enabling Mr. Abitbol to play the witness, and to win a verdict hy his evidence. No one could doubt that he was the real plaintiff; and surely, then, it would only he fair play if the defendants could be heard on oath as well as he. The defendants were indebted to his moderation that he only asked £ 1,600; lie had demanded £ 13,000 in his declaration : but some prudent friend had counselled him that this was a little too much to ask, and that it would be better to divide his favours. If he had been an innocent young man, seduced by the arts of the defendants, who now, in a fit of repentance, sought to retrieve the consequences of his folly, the Jury would listen to his story with an inclination to give it credit. But what was he?— a professed gambler; one who had been initiated at Paris in all the mysteries of the craft; who played a safe game— when he won, he walked away— when he lost, he brought his action. This was his game— 44 Heads, I win ; tails, you lose " He was an accomplice with the deepest interest; and what was his tale? At eighteen years of age he failed for £ 30,000; be had since been making £ 10,000 a year, and had lost £ 40,000 by gambling; and now here he was at thirty, trying to recover his losses by a trick of bankruptcy and his own evidence. Such was he at thirty. What would he be at fifty, when age should have matured his virtues — when knowledge of the world should have sharp- ened his perceptions? O what an accomplished witness would he be then! No jury would then be able to resist him. Meanwhile, however, the jury would not concentrate all the rays of their indignation on these defendants, but suffer a few of them to fall on the virtuous plaintiff and witness. The defendants could call no witnesses to prove a negative : for Davis, who might have been their witness, had been included as a defendant. In this the plaintiff had over reached himself; for by trying to shut out testimony, he had furnished a defence lo the action, as Davis was not a partner, hut a servant, and this tnisjoiner would be ground of nonsuit. He should call witnesses to prove this fact, and the jury would not be sorry to give effect to a defence which, though a technical defence, would produce substantial justice. Charles Swain was then examined, to prove that Davis was not a partner. He said, on the illness of Mr. I. each, who had been a partner in the house, and was since dead, I recommended Davis to assist, because he was a trusty and proper man to become a servant in their house. I am confident he had no interest in the house. On cross- examination by Mr. Gurney, the witness said— I am of no profession. I have been very familiar with the house, constantly playing there myself, Thomas Hoidsworth, brother of one of the defend- ants, deposed that Davis was a servant like himself, and no principal. Thomas Dearlove, another servant of the house, deposed that Davis was employed as a dealer and croupier, that is, a paver and receiver of monies. He was a servant at a weekly salary. Mr. Gurney, in reply, contended that Abitbol was confirmed in the most decisive manner by the absence of all contradiction ; not one of the witnesses called having been asked a question to contradict him re specting his losses. There was no imputation on that gentleman, excepting that he had been the victim of that dreadful infatuation which he trusted had now left him for ever. There were persons who had beeu able to redeem themselves from its control — one excellent friend of his ( Mr. Gurney) who had described to him the agonies of the passion in the most vivid and frightful colours, and who, havingon one happy occasion lost a very large sum, solemnly promised never to touch card or dice- box again, and had kept his word He trusted Mr. Abitbol would profit in like manner by this severe lesson. If the defence set up should succeed, every action of this kind wonld be defeated; for if few were joined, a plea in abatement would enable the defendants to get over tbe time limited by the statute; and if every active person were included, witnesses of this kind would always be procured to show that he was only a servant at a salary. The Lord Chief Justice summed up the evidence. Ile left the jury to judge of the credibility of Abitbol; but thought it right to observe, that it the testimony ofa person who, like him, had unhappily played at establishments of this kind, were rejected as unworthy of belief, the wise provisions of the law would b# entirely defeated. If they believed the witness, they would find a verdict for the plaintiff: and if tliey did so, they would further state whether they believed Davis to he interested in the winnings; as, if they did not think him interested, a question would arise how far such want of interest in one of the parties was a defence to the action. The Jury found a verdict for tbe plaintiff— Damages £ 1,610, and expressed their opinion that Davis was interested in the winnings jointly with the other parties. The verdict was taken, subject to the opinion of the Court on a special case, as to the com- petency of the assignee to sue, and of the bankrupt to give evidence. CARTER J; OLDFIELD AND BENNETT. This was another action brought by the same plaintiff, and under similar circumstances with the last, to recover back money lost by Mr. Abitbol at a gaming- house, No. 28, Bury- street, kept by the defendants— damages £ 750. Two other actions of a similar kind against the proprietors of other gambling houses staud in the paper for trial. A MEDICAL OPINION.— An unfortunate man, who had never drunk water enough to warrant the disease, was reduced to such a state of dropsy that a consultation of the physicians was held upon his case. They agreed that tapping was necessary, and the poor patient was invited to submit to the operation, which he seemed inclined to do in spite of the entreaties of his son, a boy of some years old. 44 Oh, father, father, do not let them tap you," ( screamed the urchin, in an agony of tears), 44 do any thing, but do not let them lap yon!" 44 Why, my dear?" ( said the afflicted parent), 44 it will do me good, and 1 shall live long in health to make you happy." 44 No, father, no, you will not : there never was any thing tapped in our house, that lasted longer than a week."— Literary Oar zette. English Good Nature.— At the opening of Charles the Second's first Parliament, Lord Cla- rendon delivered a speech as from his Sovereign, in which he conjured the Members of each house 44 to join with him in restoring the whole nation to its primitive temper and integrity, to its old good manners, to its old good humour, and to its old good nature and virtue, so peculiar to the English nation, and appropriated by God Almighty to this country, that it can be translated into no other language, and hardly practised by any other 1 people." INSOLVENT DEBTORS' COURT, OCT. 26. David Cowherd Vauser, who was a farmer in Cambridgeshire, had been before the Shire Court on the 6th of September, when his discharge wasopposed by Mr. Cooke, on behalf of his landlord, Mr. Wood- ward. It appeared that he rented a farm of 500 acres from Mr. Woodward, from Ihe year 1814, for which he paid £ 850 a year rent. In December, 1821, the insolvent left the farm, at which time there was rent due £ 125, besides half ft year at thp preceding Michaelmas; but the insolvent conceived he left? property on the farm fully sufficient to pay the land- lord. The landlord entered a distress, nnd sold under it. The sale produced £ 450. Mr. Woodward was a considerable purchaser at the sale. Mr. Wood- ward then held possession of the form, and after Lady- day put in another distress, and sold every thing that was moveable. Previous to the insolvent's leaving the farm he sold ninety. six sheep to Ills brother in law, and also a part of his furniture, in payment of £ 250 he had borrowed from hiin. Mr. Woodward brought an action against his hrother- in. law, to get hack the furniture, and was paid the full value of £ 100 to prevent a lawsuit. The insolvent borrowed £ 600 from Mr. Lee, in March, 1820, to enable him to go on with the farm ; he promised to pay him at Michaelmas, 1821, hut wus unable. In 1817, when he took the farm, he sold his share of a valuable estate, which was then in Chancery, for £ 1,817 ; aud, in the year 1820, he received a legacy of £ 300, all of which, as well as the amount of his present debts, aboul £ 2,000, be Inst hy the farm. The insolvent had stated in his schedule that he had no books of accounts relating to his estate. Mr. Woodward, tbe landlord, deposed, that he wns in the habit nf visiting at the insolvent's house and had seen three account books in his possession! Mr. Woodward also said, thnt he had purchased a considerable part ofthe insolvent's property that bad been sold under distress, but he did not think hc had got a great bargain— he offered it IO the insolvent's brother- in- law for a profit of £ 50. The insolvent, in explanation of his evidence re- specting hooks, stated, that the only hooks he kept were labourers' book, and a corn- book ; that the three books Mr. Woodward had sefn, were the labourers' books of the years 1820 and 1831, and Ihe corn book of 1820; two of ihose boots he had wilh hi hi in town, tbe other was in Cambridgeshire. The Court said, that the production of books was a matter of so much importance, thai the case must be adjourned to give time for the insolvent tn get the books from Cambridgeshire, that tbe whole might be filed for the inspection of the insolvent's creditors • aud as the Court was to adjourn Ihe next day for six' weeks, this day was appointed for the final bearing. Mr. Heath, who was the insolvent's Counsel, ex- pressed his regret nt the time that an adjournment was necessary, as he feared his feelings might cool before he would have the opportunity of commenting on the persevering oppression of a landlord, who, in times like the present, after he had for seven years received a rent for his farm so far beyond its value and after the tenant wns totally ruined hy continnino* lo pay that rent, not content with taking from him every thing he had in the world, now sought to keep him iu prison. Ou the case being called this day, Mr. Cooke ap- peared toopposelthe insolvent's discharge, us before, with Mr. Woodward, Ihe landlord, silting by bis side. " The insolvent stated that he had not heen in Cam- bridgeshire since his former examination ; that the book thnt was there thei), bad heen since sent up to hiin by his wife, nnd was, with the other two, filed in Ihe office of the Court. Mr. Cooke said great ingenuity had been exercis- ed to hold up Mr. Woodward as au oppressive and vindictive landlord, and through him, to wound the feelings and injure the characters of Ihe landlords of tbe country. But surely landlords, as well as all other creditors, had a right to inquire respecting the disposal of an insolvent's propertv ; and be appealed lo the Court, whether his inquiries ou behalf of Mr Woodward had not heen solely directed to that point! Ill all cases of farmers that came before the Court they heard much of agricultural distress ; but Ihouoli Ihe distress must be admitted, that was not to pre- vent a landlord inquiring into the insolvent's pro- perly. The insolvent, in the vear 1814, took a farm of 500 acres from Mr. Woodward, at a rent of £ 850 • and he slates in the balance- sheet, that the produce of lhat farm was £ 2,000 a- year; it was plain Ihen from Ins own statement, that it was not the rent of the farm, but his own expensive manner of livinu that was the cause of his insolvency In December 1821, Ihe insolvent left the farm ; and il was not till lie bad abandoned it that Mr Woodward first put in a distress. Before the insolvent left the farm he removed a great part of his stock and furniture, to his brother- in- law's. The first distress produced but £ 400 ; the last nothing; and Mr. Woodward did not put in a distress till after a distress for taxes had been put io. Mr. Heath addressed the Court for the insolvent. Hod Mr. Woodward lowered the insolvent's rent » That rent was fixed in the year 1814— before the peace. Wheat then sold for' 115s. a quarter - the average price was 9< Ss,; now the average price is under 46s. The insolvent bad a good capilal when he commenced the farm ; lie bad since borrowed more to enable him to pay the rent; tbe tenant continued till December, 1821, and Ihen, on leaving Ihe farm, left properly on it sufficient to pay the rent ; ' twas true he gave some of his property'io payment of a debt he owed bis brother- in- law : hut even that debt had been incurred by borrowing money to pay Mr. Wood. ward his exorbitant rent, and he still left ' sufficient on the premises to pay all that was due. Mr. Woodward himself admits that his first sale, when he sold hut a part, raised £ 400, after every sacrifice and over all expenses. Mr. Woodward was a purchaser at the sale, and lie makes a merit of having offered to give back what lie purchased to his ruined tenant at a profit of £ 50. Mr. Cooke said it was not the insolvent's high rent, but his expensive living that caused his insolvency. Centuries ago it was agreed hv the best judges of ihe subject that if the produce of a farm were divided into three parts, the landlord shonld have one, another should go for expenses of cultivation, and the tenant should have the third. Bv this rule, Mr. Vanser should have made a profit of £ 850 a vear of his farm, and what are Ins expenses, for which he takes credit iu his balance sheel, and which, it is asserted, is Ihe cause of his ruin ? His house expenses £ 300 a year, ond wearing apparel for himself aud family £ 50 a year. Mr. Healh said it was evident Ills learned friend mistook the insolvent's statement iu his balance sheet of Ihe produce of his farm,' which was £ 2,000 a year for the profit, but if he bad made £ 2,0(! 0 a year profit, he would not be seeking the benefit of the Insolvent Act. He was aware the Court had asacred- ness of feeling on the subject of hooks ; but it was evident the insolvent had not kept back his books for any fraudulent purpose, hut from the belief" that they did not relate to Ins . state, as fliev certainly could not be of any use to hi., cieditors. They were now filed in the office of the Court, and appeared to be strictly what he had described— iwo labourers* hooks and a corn honk. The Learned Geiilleumn con- cluded by expressing his hope, that thr Court won't! be of opinion, lhat the insolvent, whilst stru^ glin" wilh overwhelming difficulties, through the whole < 71? which he had evidently endeavoured lo act for Ihe best, had not, by any part of his conduct, brought himself tinder any pennl clause of the Act. ™ The Chief Commissioner pronounced the jndjj- ment of Ihe Court.— The opposition made to the in- solvent's discharge, putting the opposiug creditors entirely out of tbe question, had made out a case of undue preference against the general body of his creditors, by giving his brother- in- law a part of his properly iu payment, which should have been di. vided amongst the whole. On the subject of his books, there was no part of an insolvent's conduct more seriously considered by the Court llian his with, holding his books from his creditors. The insolvent's books are now produced, and it is line they are what hc, when pressed on the subject, described them to he, but still ihe withholding them in tbe fiist in- stance must form an ingredient in the judgment of the Court, which was lhat the insolvent should be remanded for a period not exceeding ten months from the date of tiling his petition.
