Plympton is rendered interesting" in the amiils of literature, from having been the birth place of the emi- nent Sir JOSHUA REYNOLDS, whose abilities not only shed a lustre on the place of his nativity, but were the great agents in advancing the arts and artists of Eng- land to a rivalship with those of classic Greece and Rome. Before the time of Sir Joshua, elegant ai t was an alien to this country ; he naturalized it to the soil, and thus disproved the assertions of Du Bos, Winckel- man and Montesquieu, who had contended, that the climate of England was inimical to the genius of paint- ing..—-— This illustrious artist was bom on the 16th July, 1723. His father was master of the grammar school, and was either a very singular man, or had accidentally obtained that character. Mr. Malone ob- serves, that he fancied " an uncommon christian name" for his son, might be the means of bettering his fortune, and therefore gave him the scriptural appellation of Joshua.—— Young Joshua evinced an early propensity for drawing, and began by copying some sketches made by his eldest sisters, and also the prints from Cat's Book oftEmblems. When only eight years old he read with great avidity and pleasure, The Jesuits Perspective, with the rules of which he soon made himself perfectly ac- quainted. He afterwards obtained Richardson's Trea- tise on Painting; the perusal of which so delighted and inflamed his young mind, that lie thought Raphael the most exalted of mortal men, and resolved to become a painter himself. To gratify his propensity for the fas- cinating art, his father placed him under Thomas Hud- son, the most celebrated portrait painter of that time. But our young artist Soon excelled his master; and sought further excellence by a visit to Rome, and other places on the continent, where paintings were collected and preserved. On returning from Italy, where he had spent three years with Lord Keppel, he attracted the public notice and applause, by a full length portrait of his patron, the above nobleman. From this period he continued to advance in fame and fortune ; and, by associating with the most distinguished literati of the age, by an amiable suavity of manners, and an union of literary and professional talents, he exalted his own honor with that of the arts of his country. He died much beloved and lamented on 23d February, 1792, and was interred in the Crypt of the Cathedral of St. |: Paul's, with every honour that could be shewn to departed worth and genius by an enlightened nation. His pall \ was supported by three Dukes, two Marquisses and five other Noblemen ; and a numerous retinue of the most distinguished characters attended the funeral ceremony. Of his private and professional character the following account is extracted from the Supplement to Pilkington's Dictionary of Painters, " In many respects, both as a 11 man and a painter, Sir Joshua Reynolds cannot be " too much praised, studied and imitated, by every one " who wishes to attain the like eminence. All nature, " and all art, was his academy; and his mind was con- " stantly awake, ever on the wing; comprehensive, vigo- " rous, discriminative and retentive. With taste to 1" perceive all the varieties of the picturesque, judgment " to select, and skill to combine what would serve his " purpose, few have ever been empowered, by nature, " to do more from the funds of his own genius; and none " ever endeavoured more to take advantage of the la- " bours of others, in making a splendid and useful eol- " lection, for which no expence was spared; his house " was filled, to the remotest corners, with casts from the " antique, pictures, statues, drawings and prints, by the " various masters of all the different schools and na- " tions.— Beautiful and seducing as his style undoubt- " edly was, it cannot be recommended in so unreserved " a manner, as his industry both in study and practice. " Coloring was evidently his first excellence, to which " all others were, more or less, sacrificed; and though " in splendor and biilliancy he was exceeded by Rubens " and Paul Veronese, in force and depth by Titian and " Rembrandt, and in freshness and truth by Velasquez " and Vandyck, yet, perhaps, he possessed a more " exquisite combination of all these qualities, and that * peculiarly his own, than is to be found in the works " of either of those celebrated masters.— His discourses " are written in an easy, agreeable manner, and contain " many just observations, much excellent criticism, and u valuable advice ; but being undertaken before he had " profoundly considered the subject, they are frequently " vague & unintelligible, & sometimes contradictory." The lines written on this great artist by his friend Gold- smith, are too characteristic to be omitted. " Here Reynolds is laid ; anil to tell you my mind, " He has not left a wiser nor better behind. His pencil was striking, resistless and grand ; " His manners were gentle, complying and bland ; " Still born to improve us iu every part; His pencil, our faces ; bis manners, our heart: To coxcombs averse, yet most civilly steering, " When they judged without skill he was still hard of hearing ; " When they talked of their Raphaels, Corregios and sufft, " He shifted his trumpet, * and only took snuff." * Sir Joshua being deaf was obliged to use an ear- trumpet in company. The Guildhall of Plympton, among other portraits, contains one of Sir Joshua Reynolds, by himself. Walpole in one of his letters to West, says, " do you . remember the story of the Prince, that after travelling three years brought home nothing but a nut} They cracked it.; in it was wrap- ped up a jiiece of- ilk painted with all the Kings, Queens, Kingdoms, and every thing in the world. After many unfoldings, out stepped a little dog, shook his ears and fell to dancing a saraband. Theie is a fairy tale for you," From DON CARLOS: A TRAGEDY. BY LORD JOHN RUSSELL. ( Don Carlos' Soliloquy in his prison cell.') Abode of misery I to what a line Of wretched men am I the heir!— the walls Themselves speak dreadful language : here are names. And here a thousand marks engraved to tell As many days of suffering; pshaw! away Such gloomy thoughts; they make me sick at heart.—. The light is disappearing through the dim And narrow window of my cell—' tis evening' At this same hour of evening, I have stood Upon the borders of the mountain ridge That skirts the plain of Seville; the broad sun: In full effulgence o'er a cloudless sky Poured his last flood of brightness; the brown bills. The aloes hedge and rhododendron wild. The golden orange and the purple grape, All seemed as clothed in light; and now ' tis gone! The god of day has vanished: a low bell The general stillness breaks, but not offends; All tongues are whispering prayer'and thanks to heaven';. And soon again the light guitar is heard, And aged grandsires with young hearts behold The tender maidens, that with graceful step Lead on the village dance— and yet how many Of those who thus rejoice, and sleep at night. And wake at sunrise with a heart at. ease, Would fain be Phillip's heir; and dream that then They should indeed he happy; poor vain worm'. The following anecdote is recorded of JUDGE DODDERIDGE. the subject of a recent number of our Provincial Biographi/.' Having, at Huntingdon assizes, in 1619, reproved the Sheriff for returning persons on the jury who were not of sufficient respectability, at the next assizes the Sheriff presented the following list; at which the judge- smiled, and at the same time applauded his ingenious industry. Maniilian King, of Torland, Henrv Prince, of Godmanchester, George Duke, of Somersham, William Marquis,[ ol Stukeley, Edward Earl, of Hartford, Robert Lord, of Worsley, Richard Baron, of By- thorpe, Edmund Knight, of St. Neots, Peter Esquire, of Eastern, George Gentleman, of Spaldock, Robert Yeoman, of Barham, Stephen Pope, of Weston, Humphrey Cardinal, of Kimbolton, William Bishop, of Bugden, John Abbot, of Stuke- ley, Richard Friar, of Ellington, Henry Monk, of Stukeley, Edward Priest, ol Graffham, Richard Deacon, of Catsworth. On a tomb in the church of Kings- teignton is the un- derwritten very singular epitaph; in which the apostrophe to Death is far better adapted for inscribing on the cenotaph of a heathen temple, than on the tomb of a christian minister. Richardus Aahini, hujns Ecclesid Vicarius, obiit I'eb. 10 1670. Apostrophe ad Mortem : Daran'd tyrant! can't prophaner blood suffice ? Must, priests that offer he the sacrifice ? Go tell the genii that in Iladts ive, Thy triumphs o'er this Sacred Calvary; Till some just Nemesis avenge our cause, And force this kill- priest to revere good laws. Cambridge, Dec. 19.— At a congregation on Friday last, the Rev. John Graham, MA, of Christ Coll, was appointed ait examiner of the Questionists, in the room of J. King, esq. MA, of Queen's Coll. There will he Congregations on the following days of the Lent Term :— Saturday, Jan. 48, ( Bachelor's Comm.) at ten ; Wednesday, Jan. 22, at eleven ; Wednesday, Feb. 19, at. eleven ; Wednesday, Feb. 26, at eleven ; Friday, Mat. 11, ( MA, inccptors) at ten ; Friday, Mar. 21, ( end of term) at teri. We underst : nd that it is Mr. Grant's full intention to offer himself again as a candidate for the representation of the University, at the next opportunity. To CORRESPONDENTS. We liave no other answer for" CRITO," than we gave him a month ago; namely, that we know nothing of " BEASTLY'S NEWS ;" and can lend ourselves to no insidious project for drugging him out of his slough.— We congratulate the Party, he is trying to stick himself upon. We thank " CLERICUS" very sincerely for his honest and friendly advice: and will be equally candid with him and our Readers at large. With respect to " Religion and Politics," however others ! may- ally or confound them, they are with us perfectly distinct things. I The one is the wisdom of this world exclusively-— the other, of the | next; one lias, in our social fabric of degrees, great " respect to | persons"—— the other, none. We know not how to write soundly j and usefully. on the one or the other, but by resting each on its owa I proper and fundamental PRINCIPLES. " Clericus" knows that Religio » j has in England at least " ten thousand" learned and constituted de- j fenders; yet, he sees notwithstanding, that we bave arrived at a period ; when the press groans with iufidelity and blasphemy, and the cry of himself and many of his rev. brethren is, that the Church is in danger. To what do we owe this rapid approach of the Enemy, but the ineffi- ciency of the defence of the Gospel and the Church 1— and why this in- efficiency, but that the defence has been conducted on eironeous PRIN- CIPLES?—— Rude and feeble as are our undisciplined abilities, seldom a week passes without bringing us some new publication of the infidel and profane some proceeding of the Constitutional Associa- tion, or Report of the Society for the Suppression of Vice with a request, expressed or implied, that we will contribute what little we can to the common defence of Church and State. Yet the only- defence we can really make, is seldom acceptable. Every other day we see the Courier, the Sun, the New Times or John Bull, labouring this defence, each in his own way. The True Briton, which was set up and superintended by the noble Lord Kenyon, appears to have hail for its prime object the defence of the Church on courtly grounds. It has failed alike in its object and its existence. Many other periodical prints appear to labour in the cause with great ability and zeal, but with as i. ttlc success. " The cry is still, they come." An injudicious advo- cate necessarily injures the cause he thinks he is defending.-—' Hie prints we have named, have played into the Enemy's hands, by assuming positions untenable, and using argumentshich recoil on themselves.— We have before us, the Courier of Monday last, in which " literary taste" is made the test of Christian fidelity: and unhappily, this sort of argument is such only ns tlie polite world will suffer, liut what then is the christian tact of the unlettered multitude 1— The courtly John Bull defends a Christian church on precisely the same, ground, as those of ancient Greece, Egypt and the desecrated church of Jerusalem, all of which Moses and the Prophets, Christ and his Apostles, expressly condemned, and that too upon the very principle on which Bull rests their defence, namely, their political utility; that is, the hollow " wisdom of this world." If we might be permitted to illustrate a point so sacred by a figure familiar to country clcrgymcn at this season, we would say— your bird is in the sky; if you aim below the mark, you will miss even your temporal object. Such is our understanding of the question, on which " CLEKICVS" condescends to expostulate with us.—- We are aware, that there are others who do not judge of our" errors" so charitably: nor, without forgetting the Bible character of human nature, cat; we expect they should. History, sacred or profane, exhibits few instances of men appealing to first principles, in an advanced state of aocicty, without giving offence and incurring censure. So incompatible in their natures arc true Religion and high Civilization, that history records not a siu- gle instance of their ever having existed together. 11 n FAMILY NEWSPAPER. LONDON MARKETS, Tuesday, Dec. 17,— Cotton.— The holders East India Cottons have evinced a disposition to sell at Prices a shade lower than last week, facilitated sales to the amount of 1500 bags j about a half was taken for the home- consumption of the country. • Sugar*— The buyers of Muscoradoes last week evinced no dispo- sition to purchase, except for their immediate wants for the home trade ; good and fine qualities continued scarce, and fully supported 4he prices ; inferior and low browns might be purchased 6d. to is. per cwt. lower, as the holders appeared anxious to effect sales; the purchases reported were however inconsiderable. The Sugar market this forenoon is uncommonly heavy, but the few purchases made were at the pervious prices. The Barbadoes Sugar at public sale, 110 hhds. 10 tierces, went off heavily, iis. lower than the last sale ; the quality was very good, 65s. for middling, up to 69s. 6d. for very good white ; remainder 60s. to 64s. Refined Goods were heavy last week ; some low lumps sold at 74s. 6iL, and contracts for delivery in spring were reported at 7 6s. The demand for Refined for home con- sumption is steady and considerable, yet the prices continue to rate iow. In Foreign Sugars no purchases by private contract were re- ported. At a public sale, 55 chests Rios were taken Is. to 2s. lower than the market prices ; White, ordinary to good, 30s. to .' 34s. 6d.; 1748 bags Siam Sugars sold Is. lower; White, fine, 37s. to 58s.; ditto middling and good, 33s. 6d. to 3os. 6d. Coffee.— There were few public sales of Coffee brought forward last week ; the British Plantation description fully supported the pre-' vious prices ; St. Domingo and Bra; ul Coffee sold Is. to 2s. lower, good ordinary St. Domingo in casks 96s. 9d., good ordinary Brazil 92s. 6d. to 93s. Some Coffee from Africa resembling Sumatra, sold 94s. to 95s. There were no public sales of Coffee this forenoon, and very few are advertised ; we have not heard of any purchases by- private contract. Hemp, Flax and Talloic — The demand for Foreign Tallow has been very languid ; the prices are a shade lower. Hemp has also been purchased at rather lower rates. In Flax little alteration. Spices.— Pepper has become very heavy, on account of the late ex- tensive importations. At the public sale on Friday, 454 bags Bl » ck Pepper met with few offers, ordinary light was taken in at bd., ordi- nary at 5fd. and Good Pimento realises 9% d. Saltpetre.— The advanced prices for Saltpetre, rn consequence of the late warlike reports, cannot now be released ; the nearest price to- day is 26s, Kaval 67ores.— There is little alteration in Naval Stores ; a parcel of Rough Turpentine is reported contracted for at 16s. 6d. Spirits are higher, on account of the advance in Liverpool. Tar is heavy 1* Pitch or Rosin there is no alteration. Oils —- The purchases of Greenland Oil are confined to parcels for immediate consumption ; the trade still buy on a limited scale ; the prices are without variation. The prices of Seed Oils are without va- riation, notwithstanding the demand and the advance in the prices of Seed. llum, Brandy, and Hollands.— The demand for Rum has subsided, the market has become heavy; parcels are offered at lower rates, without facilitating sales. Brandies maintain the late prices, and are again reported rather higher in France ; there are some speculative inquiries. Geneva may be quoted at a further small improvement. Provisions.— The prices of Beef and Pork rather give way. Holders, of Bacon arc anxious to sell ; old cannot be disposed of at any price ; the new it is expected will come into consumption after Christmas ; sales 2tt present limited, and prices lower. The cold weather has im- i: proved the Butter market; VYaterford may be quoted 70s. to 74. Dublin 71s. to 74s. Carlow 76s. to 78s. It is expected the Dutch ports will soon be closed, when the finer qualities of Irish must rule higher. CORN- EXCHANGE, Monday, Dec. 16.— Although there was a considerable supply of Wheat this morning from Essex, Kent and Suffolk, that of line quality met ready sale at an advance of full 2s. per quarter on the prices of last Monay. Barley is Is. per quarter cheaper, and went off slowly at that abatement, owing to a succession of large arrivals. Oats are Is. per quarter lower than on this day se'nnight: but there was a tolerably free sale of fine com at that declime. In Peas, Beans and Flour, there is no alteration. Wheat Si's, to 48s.; Rye 18s. to 22s.; Barley 28s, to 35s.; INI alt 46s. to 60s.; White Peas 24s. 26s.; Boilers 28s. to 34s ; Grey Peas 26s. to 30s. ; Small Beans 26s. to 30s. ; Tick ditto 20s. to 23s. ; Oats ( potatoe) 23s. to 25s.; ( Poland) 22s. to 21s,, ( feed) 16s. to 20s.; Flour 35s. to 40s. ; Rapeseed 201, ro 23/. Wednesday, Dec. 18.. . The great quantity of fine Wheat which has been purchased, both this as well as last week, has not been for town consumption, but for country millers, who find great advantage in mixing it with the inferior qualities of Wheat, and sending up Flour in return, thus keeping the price up, by a forced purchase of superfine samples. There were but few arrivals, ( 3,500 quarters of Wheat, 3,200 of Barley, 2,200 of Oats, and 2,400 sacks of Flour) of fine Wheat this morning, and even kind with difficulty supported last Monday's advance, while the inferior sorts are qtrte unsaleable.— Barley is very dull sale, as well as Oats, and Hue fresh corn barely obtained Monday's prices. In Beans, Peas and other articles, there is no alteration. Friday, Dec. 20.— Very little business lias been transacted in our market this morning, particularly in Wheat, which although not cheaper then on Monday, is very dull sale at that clay's quotation, even for the very finest samples. Barley is very heavy, a. id Is. per quarter lower than on Wednesday, the maltsters being well stocked for the present. Oats are also Is. per quarter cheaper, owing to large, arrivals. In Beans, Peas and other articles, there is little or no alteration. S. MITIIFIELD, Dec. 16.— Although our supplies con- tinue very large, yet, as the quality is superior, Beef has advanced bd., Mutton 2d., Pork 2rf. per stone ; and the sales of each were very brisk.— Beef 3s. to 4s.; Mutton 2s, 6d. to 3s. 4d.; Yeal 4s. to 5s. ; Pork 3s. 2 9- Lisbon, 52 ; Oporto, 52£ ; Rio Janeiro, 46 ; Bahia, 50 ; Palermo, 118 : Dublin, 9£ percent ; Cork, 9f percent; Foreign gold bars, 3/. 17s. 6d, per oz.; Silver in bars, 4s. ll^ t/.; New Dollars, 4s. 9% d,; Consols, for Jan, 79'.

FAIRS.— Shrewsbury Fair, on Tuesday and Wednes- day, wore rather a better aspect than the preceding fair The shew of fat beasts was not so good as usual at Christmas, but nearly all were sold at from 4d. to 4* d. per lb. and one or two peculiarly fat and beautiful cows, about 12 store per quarter, fetched nearly 5 u counties After some observations from Mr. Bailward, he was follow, ed by Mr. Elwin, who proceeded to make some observations on the causes of the distress, which he attributed mainly to over- production, assisted by other causes; and, rejecting the idea of legislative interference, he contended that the remedy lay chielly with the agriculturists themselves. Mr. Poole deprecated any diminution ol the cultivation'- ot ( he country; arid considered that great relief might be fitTorded by equalizing the poor- rates, reducing the rate of interest, and diminshing the public burthens of the country. Mr. Payne entered at length on the question of the Currency, with great ability explained the rules that govern the circulat- ing medium, and made various pertinent observations on the state of trade during and after the war. Mr. Bennett, Member for Wiltshire, in a very neat nnd intelligent speech, commented on some pi) rts of the observa* tion of the last speaker; and concluded by recommending the the agriculturists by no means to dispair, but to unite in their endeavours to remove the difficulties under which they la- boured, and from which, be had no doubt, they would ere long be relieved. Mr. Webbe Weston followed, and with great good humour and a happy style of ironical observation, commented on the distress of the landed interest, and defended the report, Mr. Fuge, after the explanation that had been given of rfie formality of receiving and confirming the Report, withdrew his opposition, and the Report was con6riDed. Mr. Attwood, in a letter to the Editor of the Farmer's Journal, has given a striking representation of the alteration of the currency as compared with the price of corn, which may be thus concise! v stated : s. d. Price* of bushel of Wheat from 1700 to^ l793 5 4 Value of the " pound sterling" 20 0 Price of bushel of Wheat from 1808 to 1813 14 4- Value of the " pound sterling," as compared with Wheat 7 7 Present price of the hushel ot Wheat 4 9 Value of the " pound sterling," as compared with Wheat 22 5 " Being a net profit of 200 per ceut. into the pockets of all fund- holders, mortgagees, lessors, and creditors.— If the average of prices of all commodities, instead of Wheat only, be taken, the value of the pound sterling will be found to have been not more than 10s. during the ten years ending the war : and the profit on loans made to Go- vernment may be thus seen : 100(. 5 percent.

" the fundholder is now literally repaidmoj- f than four times the value in Wheat titan he is entitled to! The riches of the public creditor are quadrupled on the one hajid, whilst public aad private burthens are quadrupled on the other!" New General Turnpike Act— It may be useful to Trustees, & c. of the Turnpike- roads to l. e informed, that the Act of the 3d George IV. cap. 120, which received the royal Assent on the 6th of August last, repeals all the former Acts, and consolidates the several regulations into one Act, which lakes effect on the 1st of January, and that the 37 th and 5Sd section enact, that on or before the 1st of January, 1823. the Trustees are to put up, on a table ol tolls ( painted with black • letters on white ground), the name of the gate or toll- house at which the same be affixed, and a list of the several gates, which are wholly or partially cleared by the toll paid at the gate at which the table is put up; and that the tickets deli- vered upon paying the toll, are to express the name of t) ie gate at which the same is delivered, nnd also those of ah other gates Ireed by such payment. The tolls of wheels on different breadths are revised, and are to be expressed in the new ta- bles of tolls. The provisions of Local Acts, which have been or may be passed, are to be subject to rhe regulations of the present Act;" and several other provisions are established which require the early attention of the Trustees, & c. of t, he Turnpike Roads in general. The Liverpool and Ellesmere packet, with 23 passen- gers on board, was lost in the dreadful night of Thursday the 5th inst. off Eilesmere: the packet ran foul ol'a fiat, and getting aground, nine individuals unhappily perished in attempting to get ashore. Howard and Gibbs's third examination tinder their bankruptcy commenced on Saturday last: their Counsel stated the creditors would receive 20s. in the pound, and leave a surplus to bankrupts of 70,0001.— This statement is pronounced fallacious by the Assignees. A Chelmsford paper says, " In presenting our readers with a summary of the goal calender lor the county of Essex, which has accumulated in the short space of four months, we cannot but think its extent and high criminally a practical answer to the theoretical arguments of Mr. Baton Graham:— Felony, oG; burglary,- 18; highway robbery, 4; misdemeanour, 3; poaching, 2 ; breaking prison,. 2 ; arson, 1; rape, 1; assaulting constable, 1; obtaining money under falsV pretences, 1; cutting and maiming, 2; horse- stealing, 1— 92,'' - The Birmingham bankers- whose parcel was stolen, from the Stage- coach, have offered a reward of 20001. for the appre- hension of tiie thieves. The Newcastle- upon- Tyne keelmen, so long out of employ, have at length returned to work. Horse Tallow.— A gentleman offorune, in Essex, who has recently had two favourite horses stolen from his stables, in giving information of the robbery at Bow- street, on Thursday, stated, as * - fact., he- had ascertained en unquestionable authority, that great, num- bers of stolen horses are boiled down every day for the sake of fat only. The knackers, he said, give as much as 141. for a good coach horse, cut, his throat, and pop into- a boiler, almost before his owners know they have lost FLinDELL's EE. What in me is dark, illumine." eXeTer, MONDAY, Dec. 23. The war- whoop against Spain had died away, the Journals had recanted, and the Funds had risen — when, last Tuesday night dispatches were received in Paris from Verona, which ao snonergat wind, than the Jour- nals opened again, arid down went the Stocks. This new panic- reached London on Thursday, where, it pro- duced similar effects. It was not till Thursday, how- ever, that the Paris Journals became consistent on this fresh alarm ; and these reached London on Saturday The general understanding now is, that the Continental Powers are unanimous in their determination to coerce Spain; and as a prelude, they will withdraw imme- diately, their Ministers from Madrid. The Pope has refused to receive a Spanish Ambassador,— in co, n • formity, it is supposed, with the sentiments of the Court of Vienna. A new Austrian Loan is announced.— Meantime, it is prettv generally understood, that the Spaniards are determined to stand fire. On the 8th instant, the Extraordinary Cortes decreed a new Loan of 40 millions of reals ; and they have sent off rein- forcements to Mina to enable him to scour the country of " Ihe faithful' purveyors for foreign invasion.— The French funds continued to decline. In the East, the late revolution in the Divan, has placed the Chief of the Janissaries at the bead of the Turkish Government. " This ( says a letter from Ve- rona of the . in the Journal des Debats) has given rise to new conferences, which may be continued here or at Vienna, until the Russian Cabinet is in a con- dition to adopt decisive measures— an aggression may be committed by the Turks forthwith. It is thought that in this sense, the dispatches sent off to Petersburgh by Count de Nesselrode, were drawn up. We know that orders have been sent from that capital, to the Generals in Chief of the Armies of the South and West, for the prompt concentration of their troops, in order to be ready for every event.— The persuasion in which the Sovereigns were, that the former Turkish Ministry were disposed to arrange every thing, and that they had well received the new propositions made through Lord Strang- ford, made them conceive the affairs of the East as in some sort terminated ; but the present state of affairs has singularly deranged these combinations." The Reader will find in our 7th page, a very sensible letter from an unknown correspondent, who signs " AR- GUS," on the subject of Lord Ebrington's Resolutions, and the Requisition now travelling this county under his Lordship's auspices, for converting those Resolutions into a Petition to Parliament, for an experimental Re- form.— ARGUS recommends, instead of this party meet- ing, the bona fide convention of the COUNTY, with the certainty that the COUNTY condemns his Lordship's project. But with all due deference, we think a full County meeting impracticable, more especially at this season of the year. The loyal and well- disposed part of every county, . is composed of men who very wisely trouble not their heads about politics, but confine their cares and attentions to their own proper business :— • whereas the discontented, restless, and mentally dis- eased, who therefore become Reformers, are ever ready to leave their homes to swagser and row away in a mob. — We have never y£ t seen one ef these Devon County meetings assembled in our Castfe- y: ird, but a consider- able portion of it was made up of journeymen and ap- prentices of the County of Exeter; more especially at their dinner- hour, which many of them lengthen out with an extra hour or two, whilst not a few lose half a clay's work on the occasion; their employers meantime attending to their own concerns at home, and the upper • class of citizens not chusingto mingle with a mob.— In- deed, we have never yet seen a REAL COUNTY meeting anywhere'. The bulk of all meetings so called, being made up of the comparative few, and those the restless and discontented gleanings. It was, therefore, with his characteristic discernment and professional dislike of false musters, that the Duke of Wellington called one of these county meetings " a farce." A neighbouring- county has, during the last dozen years, become famous for such farces. The leading orators of the party ( with some of whom talking is notoriously a disease) con- trive to assemble their retainers, consisting chiefly of stream tinners, and the refuse of the dissenting and me- thodist associations- - that is, persons who have stray- ed from the orderly part of these respectable societies into latitudinarian speculation- - and, merely by substi- tuting the. form for the substance, the name for the thing, this itching concretion, like a pustule on the skin of a sound body, they have never hesitated to call a County meeting! — The character of the whole proceeding at any of these Cornwall county meetings might be read in the countenances of the good people of Bodmin, who have been observed to look out and smile significantly at the sel.- important airs of the enlightened groups, as they came in. - virtually and in fact, called together to admire the oracular wisdom of their leaders, and applaud tleir flatulent harangues. - The paper bubble of this party, have been repeatedly, broken, by Loya. Declarations ( which have appeared in this paper) and to which the signing inhabitants have, as ARGUS ad- vises, affixed their additions of rank, proression, frade, & c. Thus has the extinguisher been put on the rush- light without dragging industrious men from their homes, to attend the hubbub of a county meeting; and the Loyal Declarations so signed, have exhibited nine- tenths of the property and intelligence of the County. With respect to the merits of the question so confi- dently adopted at tbis' time of day by our Noble Viscount —— with all the flourishing, declamations of the party from tongue and pen, they have not a leg to stand on. Never yet did we see or hear one of, their scribes or orators dare trust himself ch the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, of their case. Nay, worse; we never yet knew one of1 the Champions of' Reform, % hose practice did net destroy his argument. The question is one of practice— human practice : the argu- mentum ad hominem is therefore in this case peculiarly proper. Indeed litt'e more need be said of it, than, Ecce homo!— Take the Noble Lord himself as a speci- men; and treat him with all the tenderness his case will admit of. His greatest enemy could not write a satire on him more severe than his own Reforming Resolutions and speeches. Is it possible when you hear him, to forget that Lord E. became an auxiliary to Lord John j Russell's plan of Reform, when he became a member for one of the Russell family boroughs ? Somebody has compared a young Peer sitting for an old Peer's borough, and from such a seat complaining of undue influence in the Commons, to a young kangaroo peeping out of an old kangaroo's pouch, and declaiming against the comforts of warm corners h—-— In the flat contradic- tion that exists between the Noble Viscount's public professions and equally public conduct, we have a de- plorable proof of the anomalous nature of man ; the proof that he deceives himself; and it is of and by man that all governments must be formed and administered, be the laws and forms of the fabric what they may.— When the new set of political circumstances to which the Noble Viscount would lead us, shall become the present, what security have we that he will not then seek to turn them to his own advantage, as he does those in which he now sits?— It is upon this rock that all popular Reform has split, and broken into anarchy : every Reformer taking advantage of the circumstances in which he has fonnd himself, to promote his own ag- grandizement.- - Nature has formed the most dange- rous snakes with a rattle in their tail, as a warning to the wise.' His present practice-— the propensity he betrays is the rattle of the Reformer ; and wise will the nation prove, that takes warning by it. The plea of your Whig Reformers, - the plea they whisper into the ear of the Tories, for it suits not their purpose to avow it openly. is, moderate reform the golden mean. Adopt our plans, say they, and you narrow the ground of the Radicals, by the same stroke that you widen the base of the Constitutional fabric. But the argument is fallacious— the figure is deceptive. The danger consists in the unsettling of the public mind and' the ancient laws. Only break a small gap in the em- bankment of a lake or canal: the stream that first pours through it will be a small one; but the whole mass of wa- ter acquires immediately a tendency towards the outlet; the breach once made, enlarges itself every moment, — the back water presses on— to stop it at any given point becomes impracticable ; the torrent increases in a geometrical ratio, and soon overwhelms every thino- that would oppose it.— Now, this is not a fanciful figure.— Our neighbour Mr. Northmore, who laughs at your moderate reform, drew the true character of the Whig Reformers to a late assemblage of Huntites in Somersetshire. The whigs, he said, had planned just such a reform as would strengthen their own party ; and they were actually humbugging the country, for their own purposes. And indeed no truth can be more obvious. They will trim and pare their resolutions and petitions with wonderful moderation and neatness.— You shall find in their speeches, verbal distinctions and guards in abundance. But, what then ?- Every man who sets his name to the trim address of Lord E. to- day, would subscribe to the broad Radicalism of Mr. Anybody to- morrow. So, let Parliament but once break ground, you will see, as you did see on a late occasion, every artifice and fraud that is practicable set on foot again to raise a storm of popular, fury aud delusion— in the pious hope of driving the silly whigs over the breach they have made, and overwhelming the Govern- ment and the country together. We noticed a month ago the confession on oath of an Irish Radical in a court ofjustice, that the Whiteboys there, were to have risen in aid of the Radicals here, who were making a fire- brand of a very extraordinary and enraged woman. These persons, be it remembered, were all Reformers lo a man. They tried to sedvee the King's, Guards and other troops; and they have bsen heard to boast of their success. A London1 reformer, declared on that occasion, that, had their'leaders' but taken advantage of the defection they had created, the business might have been done !— It nray be remembered, that on these very preparations of the Radicals for " overwhelming the throne and the altar," the sweet Whigs wc- re struggling to climb into office, power and patronage. Hence, they could see nothing wrong in all the treason, muting and rebellion, that was hatching round them; but, on the contrary, lent what little credit they had with the coun- try, to cones& I and disguise it, and so lull i'.: e unwary into a' false security. Here then we have the rattle of the snake in the grass— the proof of its deadly character, and the warning to be on our guard.— Who then, with any regard to truth can deny that the conduct of the Reformers, disproves all their plausible arguments?— They would restore the days of Cromwell; when every county, city and town, had its Committee of Sequestra- tion. Let this state'of things be once again restored, arid you will see those men among us, who are now the understrappers of the Demagogues, bccome the inquisi- tors of the committees— taking inventories of the pro- perty of all who. have any, and swearing away their lives, for the sake of the forfeiture. Hearing then, as we do, the rattle of Reform, let us beware of the Snake. The Courier of Saturday last intimates, that the dis- turbance in the Dublin Theatre when the Lord Lieute- nant visited it, and which was thought lightly of by persons accustomed to gallery rowing, had somewhat of high treason in it!— Combinations and discoveries are talked of; but no particulars given. We noticed lasl week, the general rise in the price of live cattle i. i our fairs, and of butcher meat in our markets ; and the week thuc lias since passed brought us new proofs of both. - There was also a rise in the price of fine wheats at Mark- lane on Monday last ; and i" the nature of things, a considerable rise in bread corn must ineutabiy take place nt no very distant period. - The consumption of wheat is now increasing in a ratio of which mmiv are not aware: in those districts, " here oatmeal breud Ins hitherto b; en the common food of the people, almost none but what is made of the best wheaten flour is to be seen, and in almost all quarters this de- scription is now generally consumed, where mixed flour for- merly was in common use. So low has the price fallen for the inferior wheats of the crop of' 1821, that they are given ill considerable quantity to horses and to stock, ih preference to oats or other grain ; there is also a general waste arid im- providence prevailing in the use, such as usually attends great abundance, and low prices — The harvest ( if last autumn was not so abundant as the former; nor is the wheat tillage of this seison understood to be so extensive as the last, or so well manured. ST. SIDWELL'S— The tower of St. Sidwell's ap- proaches completion. Our Readers are aware that the body of the oil church was a few years since taken down, and the present elegant fabric substituted. The recent portion was united to the tower, and an attempt to harmonize the two was resolved on. This was no tri- vial task, and as pecuniary considerations forbad very extensive altera- tions, the architect must have encountered much difficulty. The church is characterised by its comparative loftiness ; a fortunate cir- cumstance as the altered tower would otherwise have appeared too slender. Hence the longitudinal and perspective views are agreeable, although the lateral necessarily exhibits an unplcasing contrast.— Of the present tower the general proportions are good, the windows ex- cellent, and their distribution passable. The pinnacles are handsome, but rather massive. One error exists destructive of beauty ; a turret on thi southern aspect is continued to the summit. Supposing Its complete removal would have incurred an unallowable expence ; yet a dome of m isoipy, supporting a buttress, might have terminated it on a level with the church roof. The general outline Would thus have sustained little injury ; and on its outline the beauty of every bu'. laiug mainly relies. A spire one half its height is to be added to the tower. by this its present slenderness will be aggravated. The sole motive of this addition is we believe to accomodate the favorite vane ; so attach- ed arc the Grecians to a practical pun.— Our suggestions are now useless ; hut we conceive it unfortunate that the turret was not Wholly omitted, and a buttress substituted. Butresses should have been af- fixed to the eastern side. That the church presented no obstacle is proved by the grey friars, Richmond, & c. As it is, St Sidwcll'j towel w ill not claim equal admiration from every point of view. The old Winter Assemblies in Exeter, have merged into Six Balls, which will be held fortnightly at the old As- sembly Room at Congdon's hotel. I'hey are expected to Ire of n most fashionable description.— The first ( as it will be seen in our front page) is advertised for Thursday next, under the patronage of Lady Rolle ; a Lady, of whom we would say, but tliut we tear ; t may offend her delicacy, that she has already won the hearts of nil ranks in thi- neighbourhood. flow many delightful ideas and recollections of cha- rity ami benevolence are associated with the word CHRISTY M^ S!— At this season, tlie poor ef every towu and village, were wxnt to claim of rheir opulent neighbours, in the name of the Divine Founder of Christianity, that relief which he has awarded them in his Will and Testament, yet we have lived to see the ( la v, when the Law has made the relief of a beggar at our door, a penal act 1— What a text is this, for a philosophical divine, disposed to expatiate on Law, Gospel, and principles of humane action ! — At the Bath Agricultural Society meeting last week, we are told. Sir T. Lethbridge was asked, if the account was correct, which had been copied into all the papers from the Taunton Courier, as to his. having thirteen farms at present un- tenanted; when the Honourable Baronet stated that he had onlv seven in that, unfortunate state Only to have about doubled the number, was very moderate in a Journalist of the Reforming School, whose practice it is to bend FACTS to sys- tematic prejudices. " That Parliament can afford any whole " some relief on this subject, is not among the infirmities of " judgment for which we have to reproach ourselves."— vide Taunton Courier.

AND FAMILY NEWSPAPER We understand the gentlemen of the Glee- Club intend giving a splendid entertainment to the Ladies of the neighbourhood on the 17th of January, The Harmonic'Concert at our Rooms on Thursday last, it is agreed on all hands, outshone even the preteding concert, both in the number and brilliancy of the company, and the science, skill and taste of the performers.— Want of room prevents our saying more, than that the fashionable assemblage amounted nearly to 500 ; among whom were tbe Lord Bishop and bis Lady, Lord and Lady Rolle, Lord and Lady Graves and family, Sir T, and Lady Drake, Sir George Collier, & c. & c. Yesterday the Lord Bishop of this Diocese held a pri- vate Ordination in the chapel of the blessed Virgin Mary within his Palace, when George Hole, L. L. B, of Trinity coil. Cambridge, and William Tyrrell Russell, A. B. of Lincoln, () xf. were admitted to the holy order of Deacons; and George Brian, A. B. of Exeter coll., Ox- ford ; John Briggs, A.

M. of Balliol coll., Oxford, were admitted to the holy order of Priests. The well- regulated emulation, and judicious distribu- tion of rewards, which form the system of Mr. Gould's Seniinray in this city, have produced, we understand, the happiest effects on his pupils. The Christmas prizes, were awarded on Wednesday last, to Masters J. Pope, Ellis, Bastow, Parsons, and Langsford, for daily les- sons and success in competition, to Master Gilardone for bis great progress in arithmetic, to Master J. Pope the 1st prize and Master J Strout the 2nd pri/. e for producing a greater number of cards of merit than any other of their Schoolfellows, and to Master Wippell for his continued progress in the French language, CASTLE of EXETER, Dec. 20.— At a meeting of the Magistrates acting for this division, it was resolved,—" That as there- is reason to apprehend that impositions have been practised on parishes by patients of the Devon and Exeter HoSpital, who are paupers, ap- plying for cloathing, and othe - wearing apparel, under the powers vested in Magistrates by an act passed in the 25th Geo. Ill, c. 21 ; it be recommended to tbe Committee of the said Hospital to make a strict and minute enquiry into every case of this description before any certificate shall be granted for that purpose. It was also re- solved, that it is highly necessary, with a view of preventing frauds and impositions, that every subscriber who intends to grant a . recom- mendation for tire admission of pauper as a patient into the Devon and Exeter Hospital, should use his endeavours to ascertain that he is supplied with necessary cloathing and other wearing apparel before ! he leaves the parish to which lie belongs." Charles Ash, of Kenton, cooper, a notorious poacher, and connected . with a formidable gang of such, was convicted in the penalty of 20/. | for using a gun to kill game. lie was seen- to fire by a gamekeeper t on Powderham estate, and was pursued over several hedges and through a river before he was taken. This same young man, w as j brought to the Cattle about a month ago for assail'- g his brother in Company with some of his poaching comrades, and dismissed on paying the • xpenccs. Edmund Chapman, sen. Edmund and Abraham, his sons, and James Arthur, a lad in liis employment, all of Topshain, were convicted, the father in 40s. and the the three others in 20s. each, for cutting and carrying away the large branches of some ash trees from the estate of J. B. Creswell, esq. apparent'y for the purpose of enlivening their Christmas festivities with the cordial blaze of an ashen- faggot. Mr. Creswell, who had resided in the parish upwards of seventeen years, had been annually plundered in common with his' neighbours, for this merry- making purpose, to an unconsionable extent, and he had brought forward this charge with the hope of repressing it, but. with- out desiring in the present case to visit the delinquents with the full penalty of tiie Jaw. Joseph Voote appeared on the chage of Thomas Esworthy, for keep- ing a vicious dog, by whifih he had been bitten. Voote paid the appellant 13s. Sarah Cornish, a single woman, of Ide, was seut to Bridewell, for burdening the parish with two illegitimate children. A man w as brought up as a vagrant, for having returned to the parish from which he had been sent by the overseers of the poor, lie received an excellent character from one of the overseers, and had never in any instance received parish pay, or shewed any probability of receiving it, excepting the mere chance of absolute accident; and had returned, as he stated, of his Own acord, and which was not denied, because a good job had been offered him, by which he might have better manitained his family. Under the late Vagrant Act, of the two vears suspension of which by the new one the overseers seemed not lo be aware, the man would have been liable, for this offence, to imprisonment in the Bridewell ; and which he will yet be subject to should he tinder any emergence receive a farthing from the parish to which he has returned.— On being dis- charged, lie applied to be paid for the loss of his day's work, which was refused, w ith an intimation tint the receipt of it would most pro- bably subject him to the. penalty he had so narrowly escaped. John Ford and William Buncombe, both of Topsham, for using de- ficient weights arri William Street, also of Topsham, for keeping an unequal balance, were fined 5s. each, Exeter Markets.— Our great market on Friday last, produced a display of beef, mutton, pork, turkeys, geese, poultry, butter, winter fruit, & c. & c. unrivalled in beauty, excellence and abundance. Our country friends, however, to whom the city owed this admirable supply, and our felluvv citizens who paid for it, were both sufferers, bv twj abuses, which have long been growing. up in our markets, and which, now that they have reached a height no longer suh'crable, will, we trust, be seriously looked into by the " Lords of the market,' and abated. One of these abuses is, tbe practice of certain persons " whom nobody knows," taking possession of the stall- grountl, and occupying it with rows of empty panniers, baskets, old tables and shutters, before the country people arrive, and as they drop in and the space begins to fill, selling the possession of the ground so hsurped for as much as can be made of it. To such a height has this practice atisee' that a great deal of money is made of the trick weekly ; and as this happens before daylight, the absence of authoritative eyes, is generally believed to afford opportunity for the connivance of inferior officer-. The second abuse, and that which was carried to an unexampled extent in the market of Friday last., was this. So anxious were country folks, in the expectation of a full market, to secure themselves good standing room, that ttiey began to arrive and take ground along the High- street, before nine o'clock the preceding evening. Here they were m- 1 by troops of regraters, who, before day broke on Friday morning, had bought up the greater part of the supply ; and when daylight aud the usual market hours c uue, lue general inhabitants who attended to purchase for their own consumption, found that the night buyers were the day sellers ; aud that prices were greatly advanced in consequence,— We should not do justice to Messrs.

Potts.-— This was an action to recover compensation for a criminal intercourse with the plaintiff's wife.— The damages were laid at. 10,000/.—- The plaintiff, a Captain in the army, married in 1815, Miss Burn, according to the laws of Scotland, and were afterwards married in England. The . young lady had a considerable estate. A separation afterwards took place, and a settlement was made in March, 3 b'.' O, five years after tbe marriage ; but they afterwards came together, and but for the artifices of the de- fendant, who stepped in, and put an end to it, in February, 1821, their happiness had continued. The plaintiff remained in Notting- hamshire, and the lady went to reside in Devonshire, where the defen- dant carried her off'.— To prove the adultery, Hen. Hayman, employed as a gardener, at Teignmouth cottage, saw Mr. Potts and Mrs. Barker frequently walking together; they appeared to be intimately acquaint- ed— defendant appeared her chiei acquaintance.

Wright, who lived at the same inn, confirmed Rosham's testimony. She went away in a post- chaise Mr. Potts rapt at her door, and said, " Mrs. Barker, here are. your keys ;" lie did not go into the room ; the lady and two gentlemen went away iirst, Potts went, away afterw ards. — Mr. Plumbtree made search for Mrs. Barker, by desire of her uncle. Saw Mr. Potts in a street at Kingston. Witness went up and spoke to him ; he said Mrs. Barker was in a shop, and he would call her out, and then go to a friend's house ( a military officer This . was on Tuesday, the 1st. of March, 1821. Witness then followed them to the house, and afterwards prevailed on Mrs. Barker to return to town. He then went for a post- chaise." She got her clothes and boxes; the' keys were thrown into the room by Mr. Potts, Witness then brought her to London, to Norfolk- street, in the Strand.— The. Jury found for the plaintiff— Damages 2001. To the Editor of the W estern Luminary. Sir— I observed in your paper last week, a paragraph relative to the present investigation of some of tile very valuable charities in the hands of the Chamber.— The costs of the investigation will doubtless be chiefly defrayed out of the unappropriated Funds of the Charity now in the hands of the Chamber ; and although the current experiees must be a temporary application of the Poor Rates, yet they will be thus eventually reimbursed. ; " JAMES TERRELL, Solicitor to the Corporation of the Poor.

One of the Noncowrie islands is said to be occu- pied by a large number of Europeans who exist as pirates.— Several persons bathing not- far from Calcutta have been seized by alligators and sharks. Saturday night, his Excellency the Marquis of Welles- ley attended the Dublin Theatre. From the moment, he entered the Vice- Regal box, he was assailed with hissing by the Orange Faction, who called out loudly for the party tunes. No notice was taken of their violent be- haviour, until a wretch in the upper gallery threw a bottle at the Noble Marquis, which struck the pannel of his box : on which the Guards were immediately sent into the gallery, and several of the rioters were seized and conducted to prison. All the accounts hitherto received from Dublin concur in reprobating the atrocious outrage offered to the pre- sence of the Lord Lieutenant in the Theatre. It appears, however, that the disgraceful spirit which was exhibited was confined to a very small number of persons, a cir- cumstance which deprives it of much of its importance, though it by no means lessens its turpitude. The great body of the audience manifested the strongest interest in his Excellency's safely; and the universal expression of the public opinion since the perpetration of the out- rage has proved that it was equally repugnant to the feelings of all parties, and that the few drunken or fran- tic wretches who committed the offence, therefore, are alone chargeable with tbe consequences of their own intemperance. The Cork Advertiser of Saturday gives a detailed ac- count of several daring outrages committed by large parties of armed insurgents, who plunder houses, set fire to hay and corn stacks, & c. Thursday, a large party of Whiteboys went to the sexton of the parish of Whitechurch, and after making him swear he would have nothing to do with collecting the tithes, procured a live coal, and set fire to a quantity of tithe- corn. EARTHQUAKE IN SYRIA. The following are extracts from official communications of Mr. Barker, the Consul at Aleppo, to the Levant Company, describing the late dreadful earthquakes in Syria. " Near the ruins of Antioch, Sept. 13, 1822. " It has fallen to my lot to relate the particulars of an event that has thrown most of the families of this part of Syria into sorrow and mourning, and all into the greatest difficulties and distress. " On the 13th August, at half- past nine in the evening, Aleppo, Antioch, Idlib, Riha, Gissa Shocr, Darcoush, Armenas, every village, and every detached cottage in the Pashalic, and some towns in the adjoining ones, were in ten or twelve seconds entirely ruined by an earthquake, and arc become heaps of stones and rubbish ; in which, on the lowest computation, 20,000 human beings, about a tenth of the population, were destroyed, and an equal number maimed or wounded I The extreme points, where this terrible phenomenon was violent enough to destroy the edificess, seem to be Diabekir and Merkab, ( twelve leagues south of Latuchin), Aleppo and Scanderooh, Killis and Kahn Shekoon. All within these points have suffered so nearly equally, except Orfa and Latachia, which have not suffered much, that it is impossible to fix on a central point. The shock was sensibly felt at Damascus, Adeno, and Cyprus. " To the east of Diabekir, and north of Killis, I am not yet well informed how far the effect extended in those radii of the circle. The shock was felt at sea so violently, within two leagues of Cyprus, that it was thought the ship had grounded. Flashes of fire were per- ceived at various times throughout the night, resembling the light of the full moon, bat at no place to my knowledge lias it left a chasm of any extent, although in the low grounds slight crevices are every where to be seen, and out of many of them water issued, but soon after subsided. " There was nothing remarkable in the weather or state of the atmosphere. Edifices, on the summit of the highest mountains, were not safer then buildings situated on the banks of rivers, or on the beach of the sea. " It is impossible to convey an adequate idea of the scenes of hor- ror that were simultaneonsly passing on the dreadful night of ISth August. The awful darkness, the continuance of the most violent shocks at. short intervals, the crash of falling walls, the shrieks, the groans, the accents of agony and despair of that long night, cannot be described. When at length the morning dawned, and the return of light permitted the people to quit the spot on which they had been providentially saved, a most affecting scene ensued. " You might have seen many, unaccustomed to pray, s me pros- trate, some on their knees adoring their Maker. Other's there ' were running into one another's arms, rejoicing in their existence. An • air of cheerfulness and brotherly love animated every countenance. " Iu a public calamity, in which the Turk, the Jew, the Christian, : the Idolator, were indiscriminate victims, or objects of the care of an ! Impartial Providence, every one forgot for a time his religious animo- ' sities, and wli t was a still more universal feeling in that joyful nio- j mem, every one looked upon the heaviest losses with the greatest in- difference. But as the sun's rays increased, they were gradually re- j minded of the natural wants of shelter and of food, and became at, length alive to the full extent of the dreary prospect before them ; for a greater mass of human misery has not been often produced by any of the awful convulsions of nature. A month has now elapsed, and the shocks continue to be felt and strike terror into every breast, night and day.' The fear that they may not cease before the rainy season commences, has induced those whose business cannot allow of their quitting the ruins of their towns,, instead of rebuilding their houses, to construct temporary hovels of wood without the walls, and many. families who thought themselves before this calamity straitly lodged in a dozen of apartments, now exult in the prospect of passing the winter in a. single room 20 feet square. " The spacious mansion that has been the residence of the British Consul at Aleppo tor 230 years, is completely ruined. The houses of all the other public agents and private European individuals at Aleppo have been likewise entirely ruined. At Aleppo, the Jews suffered the most on account of their quarter being badly built, with narrow lanes. Out of a population of less than 3000 souls, 600 lives were lost. Of the Europeans, only one person of note, Signer Esdra di Picciotto, Austrian Consul- General, and ten or twelve WOMEN and Children perished, but the greater part are now suffering from ophthal- mia and dysenteries, occasioned by their being exposed to the exCes,- sive heats of the day and the cold dews of the night. When it is considered, that two thirds of the families in Aleppo have neither the means of making along journey, to remove to a town, out of the effect of the earthquake, nor of building a shed to keep off the rain, it is impossible to conceive all the misery to which they are doomed the ensuing winter, or ever to find more deserving objects of the compas- sion and charity of the opulent, whom it has pleased God to place in happier regions of the globe. " Here planks and fuel are cheap, and the people have the resource of tiles, which they wgre taught to make by the crusaders, in their long residence at Antioch ; but in Aleppo, where wood is very dear, they have no contrivance to keep out rain but freestone walls and flat roofs, made of a verv expensive cement."

I he following article, is from the French Government Paper I Etoile of Tuesday last " The Congress at Verona has terminated its labours, un- a moment so solemn, we enter upon a peace. As we have constantly done, the be considered by us in its connexion with policy, .. it not, as it is viewed by the revolutionary Journals in re- gard to wl at deference is due to those vulgar declamations which tend to prove that peace is preferable to war— a truth which no one disputes, and which each day is treated ami re- solved in this sense on '. lie benches of our academical institu- tions.— Yes, doubtless, peace is preferable to war, and it is because Europe is convinced of this, that she desires to put an end to a state of peace which does not even conceal a state of war. — There can be no peace between a Government which is founded upon, and which continues to assert, the principle of the Sovereignty of the people, and the other Go- vernments of Europe where ibis principle is resisted as de- structive of Royal Authority, r— There can be no peace with a Goi eminent which, in order to maintain itself, is obliged to proscribe and to plunder the Clergy, a class of persons pro- tected and defended in all civilized States. There can be no peace with a Government which agitates the turbid passions cf the multitude against all social institutions ot whatfever hind; which violates the sacred rights of property, rights that are acknowledged wherever laws are maintained; which holds its King in captivity, when all other Sovereigns, his Allies, are free; which threatens to expatriate his armies if they in- crease and become more warlike; finally, there can he no peace with a Government with which are identified the wishes, the principles and the designs, of all the enemies of Royalty.— It is not then war which we demand, but peace; we demand that the triumph of legitimacy may be for Europe what it has been lor France, a pledge of reconciliation among all Crowned Heads. During thirty years we carried desola- tion beyond our frontiers; no peace was possible with us; scarcely was one signed when war renewed its horrors, jind we realized what Pitt had said;—- under whatever form the Re- volution presents itself you curt new treat with it. Its princi- ples tire, destructive, its actionis subversive ; whatever Power comes in contact with it is dragged into its vortex, and bccomcs in its turn revolutionary. Safety alone can be found in flying from it. Experience has every day demonstrated the truth of these words; and the moment the legitimate throne was restored in France, upon the ruins of the revolution, peace was at once possible and easy. Since that memorable period, it has not beeu for one instant disturbed. Let us then snatch from re volution her latest conquest, and humanity will recover all her rights; Then, alone, peace will be what it out to be— a sincere alliance between two Powers, and n< t a truce between two hostile Constitutions. Paris, Tuesday evening. - " Intelligence of the great- « st interest has arrived. The Ultimatum respecting Spain, which it is stated, his Majesty so long hesitated to sign, and which was dispatched to Verona, for the final ratification of Congress, has been retnrned here, signed by the Allied Sove- reigns. The terms are such, that it is not likely Spain will consent to them." An affair has taken place on the French frontier, in nvhich some French soldiers were wounded. The Drapeau Blanc of Tuesday asserts that three were killed; but the letter says that three privates of the 6th Regiment of Light Infantry were wounded, and an officer. The French Funds continue to fall. At four o'clock on Tuesday they were 88f. 20c., a fall nearly of three per cent, since Friday. " Extract of a letter from Constantinople, dated lltb Nov.—' The detested favorite Ilaleb Effendi, who had sold himself to the Diplomatists, or, as the Turks say, to the Ghaurs ( infidelsJ has been deposed by the Sultan, in conse- quence of a great insurrection of the people and the Janissaries. The grand Vizier and the Barber Pacha ( chief Rarber) shared iis fate, We are in the greatest danger, as the reign of the Janissaries has begun again.'" " OKSOW A, NOV. 25.— An extraordinary courier, bring- ing dispatches from Constantinople, has passed through this place on his way to Verona. A report has since been spread, that the Janissaries have made themselves masters of the Se- vaglio, and seized on the treasures which it contained, and that the Sultan has fled to Scutari, all this, of course, needs confirmation. The Paris papers of Saturday contain intelligence from Constantinople to the 12th ult.; an insurrection had taken place in ihat capital: it appears, however, that it was appeased by the disgrace and banishment, without the death, of Haleb Ellendi. the Grand Vizier, and the Mufti, who were both his friends. The new Vizier is Abdallah Pacha and Sidke Sadi, the new Mufti.— A complete victory has been gained by the Persians over the Turks ; and the Pacha of Trebisond has been ordered to treat for peace with the victors.— The Camai- can of Wallachia has been beheaded for having kept up a correspondence with his brother, oae of the rebels of the Morea." New York and Philadelphia Papers have arrived to the 21st ult. The fever at Pensacola was still raging, and had communicated to the troops in the town, several of whom had fallen victims to its influence. At Phila- delphia, papers .' rem Madras had been received, dated as late as the 25th of July. They contained some par- ticulars of the dreadful storm at Calcutta on the 7th of the preceding month, which had done immense damage. The principal part of the Indigo crop is stated to have been destroyed by the heavy rains which succeeded the liurricancs, and continued for four days with but little intermission. The storm itself lasted forty five hours, and swept houses and every thing before it. At Jassore it is represented to have raged with dreadful violence, and destroyed the rice both in store and on the ground, leaving for such of the inhabitants as had escaped the desolation not more than ten days' consumption in the • whole province. The prisoners in the jail were liberated to prevent their being starved ; and it was supposed the - the rise in Indigo would be very great; and would take AND FAMILY NEWSPAPER. LORD EDRINGTON'S RENEWED AGITATION. Mr Editor— In a late number ofyour paper, you favored tjs with a description of the few but respectable persons, whom Lord Ebrington assembled to approve of his it so- lutions upon the subject of Agricultural distress, as he was pleased to call it; but which, in fact, is nothing- more or less than a gull trap to collect a mob, to which his Lordship is desirous of introducing his adopted child. Parliamentary Reform. It is now about five years that this, before happy and united county, has been cursed by his Lordship's restless spirit. He has scarcely allowed us time to heal the wounds which liis former contests, broils and mischiefs had inflicted upon us, when he again starts up with the torch of Discord blazing in his hand, in the shape of Reform in Parliament. Upon this subject, Sir, it is not my intention to bestow much of my time, or to occupy much space in your most valuable paper; well knowing that argument, however good, can neither improve the head of a fool, nor the heart of a wicked man. There may however be some men, who are neither directly foolish nor wicked, and who may fancy ( from the artful insinuations and false assertions of the cham- pions of Reform) that the Constitution might be in- pro- ved. To those then, I would address myself, and desire them to look back at the storms which have been breaking around us for the last thirty years, and they will clearly see that nothing but our glorious Constitution ( with all its faults) and a wise administration of it, could have placed us, as it has done, the highest in power, wisdom and wealth, of all the nations upo 1 the earth. e Let those who are bankrupts in character or fortun listen to Reformers ; to these any change might be for the better; but cannot be for the worse; a scramble is all they want; but if you have either of these valuable commodities to stake, avoid a Reformer as you would a quack doctor; for the former is in the political consti- tution, what the latter is in the corporeal. The Noble Lord, 1 dare say, will tell you, that he is a firm friend to the Constitution; that it is not to de- stroy, but to amend it, that he offers his service. He will tell you, that it requires purgation, restoration, and reformation; and that he is the person best qualified to undertake the cure. But let this itinerant State- tinker take care how he meddles with so beautiful, but com- plicated a piece of machinery, as our most glorious Constitution ; lest, like other quacks, his purgations should be followed by streams of blood, which his art would be unable to stop. It is well known that his Lordship's emissaries are going about begging- from door to door for names to affix to the requisition to the High Sheriff to convene this . mischievous meeting; and it is upon this head, that 1 presume to offer my advice to the well disposed of all ranks. Trickery and cunning, should be guarded against by prudent foresight. Retnember, gentlemen, how little you were prepared for the Rider upon the last occasion, and be assured that more tricks are preparing upon this occasion to prevent your real sentiments being known. It is his Lordship's intention to put off the assembling of his mob, till just before the meeting of Parliament; thinking thereby to render difficult, if not impracticable, a Counter Address from the more respectable, arid bet ter jndging part of the County. In order then to deprive the Noble Lord of the advantages he anticipates from this low trick, 1 would recommend an EARLY requisition for a COUNTY, not a party, meeting, when those who are sensible of the value of our inestimable Constitution may have an opportunity of assuring the fountain of it, of tiieir love, duty, and attachment to him, and their de- termination to preserve the Constitution from all unhal- lowed inroads upon it, with their lives and their fortunes. Copies of this address should be open in different parts of the county, and time allowed for signatures; and it would be desirable, that to each signature, the rank, profession, or trade, should be attached. This I should think would add to its respectability, and con- vince our most gracious Sovereign and the Kingdom at large, that Devonshire yields to no county, in loyalty to the Throne or in veneration for the GLORIOUS CONSTI- TUTION which it has pleased the Giver of all good things to bless us with. One piece more of advice I would offer, gentlemen, though I am aware how little. I have to expect your compliance with it. The love of public speaking, I fear, may attract many, and that of curiosity and idleness many more, to Lord Ebrington's meeting: but the orator may be assured, that no reasoning will turn evil- disposed persons from their plans ; and the spectator, though he neither ap- proves of their measures, nor takes any part in their designs, may be assured that he adds one more to their calculation of numbers, and in appearance to their respectability. Let me then entreat all those who are not Reformers, to give his Lordship an opportunity of seeing unmixt the rabble by which he is attended ; and, if lie is pos- sessed of one grain of good sense, he will then see that it is time to give this county a little repose. Let us also hope that he may see the necessity of extricating himself from the society he has unfortunately entangled himself in, and that he may henceforward adopt that line of conduct and society, which from his birth and education we have a right to expect. ARGUS. ENGLISH ABSENTEES. Mr. Editor— I cannot refrain from calling your attention to the recent statements in some of our papers, rather vaunt- , ingly made, of the number of English Families, including noblemen not a few, who are about to make " the eternal city" as ( hey shamelessly term it) their winter quarters. We read of one noble lady who is to be Grand Caterer for the rest and and she will doubtless have work enongh upon her hands to provide for their cRaving appetites for pleasure! What a highly intellectual pre eminence docs such a post confer, not only upon tfio individual, but upon her country; and how much of a piece with the true old English character! There we see, jumbled together protestants and papists making one common cause; a pious confederacy as it were to advance the papacy. — Upwards of 5000 English Families, we are told, besides a long list of noblemen, are expected to winter in Rome. What a fearful drain from our national resourses; and what is worse, what dangers are not to be apprehended in a moral point of view, from the contagion of Italian manners— the most wretch edly licentious upon the face tf the earth.— Oh! for a Property Tax, or some other mode of castigation for these unnatural self- exiling children of our mother country ! Then again,— we are told of the sanative appearance and amiableness of the Pope, and what great hopes were entertained of his being able to perform the ceremonies at the ensuing Festival in person. — here is his Holiness, ( which is blasphemy) and " the eternal City" sncred language desecrated to disguise the " mother of abominations"— the parent of the'• worst corruption of the best religion that ever was!"— a City, by all scriptural and impartial Writers on the prophecies devoted to destruction; all agreeing that she will ( all by a most horrible Judgment; and one would almost think that the late tremendous out- pouring of Mount Vesuvius was a sort of prelude to the appalling catastrophe. It is remarkable, that Popery and Mahomedanism, tha Beast and the false prophet, rose toge- ther; they have flourished together, and are now evidently sinking together, till the fiat of the God ofTruth goes forth. L.- t them fall with a double destruction. VERITAS. NAVAL.— On Wednesday his Majesty's shipLeander, 60, Rear- Admiral the Hon Sir H Blackwood, bart, KCB, returned from the command m the East Indies, in which be was succeeded on the 21st of July last, by Commodore Charles Grant, C B who arrive! at Trincomalee, in the Liffey, on that day, after a fine passage from England. Capt. Job Hamner came from the Cape of Good Hope, in the command of the Leander, in consequence of Capt, Charles Richardson, C B, being landed there in very ill health. Lieut. Price Hamilton, of the Leander, was promoted to command the Heron, in the room of Capt. Hanmer. The crew of the Lcander w as very se- verely afflicted with scurvy, but by obtaining large supplies of vege- tables and fresh beef, at Symon's Town, were soon restored to health. The Leander sailed from Trincomalee on the 21st of August, the Cape of Good Hope the 20th of October, and St. Helena on the 1st ult. All the ships composing the Indian squadron, were left at Trin- comalee, viz, the Liffey, Glasgow, Tees, Dauntless, Sophia, Curlew, and Satellite. The Glasgow was under- way for the River Hoogly, to take on board the Marquis of Hastings. It was uncertain whether the noble Marquis would procced to England, or the Mediterranean, thence to pursue his course to Vienna, at which Court he is to suc- ceed the Marquis « f Londonderry, the present Ambassador. The Liffey was to sail in about a fortuight, for Madras, and thence to Cochin, to launch and fit out, for a passage to England, the new ship Termagant ; Capt. Dunlop, and the Officers and crew of the Curlew, were to be turned over to her. The Madagascar, 46, is to be launched at Bombay is January ; Capt. Gambier, and the Officers and crew of the Dauntless, arc io be turned over to her, for passage to England. The Tees was about to sail for Pcnang, the Sophia to the Persian Gulpb, the Satellite, for New South Wales. The ships were all healthy. Commodore Nourse had left the Cape, for the Mauritius.—- The Heron had returned to the Cape, Capt. Hanmer having most satisfac- torily ascertained there are no such dangeis to the navigation of those seas, as the Telemaque or Albion bank or shoals : he traversed the whole of the ground in every direction, sounding almost every hour, with from 130 to 175 fathoms of line out, and upwards, but found no shoal- bank nor any appearance that could justify the supposition. The ship General Palmer, which left Madras on the 4th of August, arrived at St. Helena on 30th Oct. and was to sail the next day for England , Sir E. Barnes, late Governor of Ceylon, is a passenger. The Leander was put under quarantine shortly after her arrival, from having boarded the Frenchship, La Thresa, from Marseilles, in lat. 20, 41, N. long, 30. 26. W.—- She was released from this restraint yesterday luorning, and Sir Henry Blackwood struck his flag last night; she is to come into Harbour to be paid off.— The passengers by her were— Capt. R. Gore, R N, Capt. G. Baker, EN, Lieut. Crocker, Mr. Garrow, Accomptant- Generai of Madras, and Mr. Twistleton, from Colombo. We barn by letters from Malta, that the Rochefort, 80, Vice Admiral Sir Graham Moor, K. C. B. Capt. Chas. Schomberg, C. B. and the Euryalus, frigate, Capt, Augustus Clifford, C. B. were refit- ting there on the 17th of Oct. whence they would proceed to Naples, as the former ship intended to winter in Bahia Bay.— The Cambrian had gone to Rome, with the King's picture for the Pope ; the Dis- patch, Redpole, and Chanticleer, were employed among the Ionian Islands ; the Martin and Hind were at Smyrna ; the Rose fitting at Malta to relieve the Martin. Wednesday a court of directors was held at the East India House, when the following ships were thus timed:—. For Madras and Bengal— Princess Charlotte of Wales, and Marquis of Wellington; to be afloat the 12th March, 1823 ; to sail to Gravesend 26th March ; stay there thirty days, and to be in the Downs 1st of May.- For Bengal — Minerva, and Thomas Grenville ; to he afloat the 24th April, 1323; sail to Gravesend 10th of May; stay there thirty ( lavs, and to be in the Downs 15th June Thursday, the anniversary dinner of the Ship- owners Society took place at the City of London Tavern. The Earl of Liverpool, as president of the Society, officiated as chair- man, supported by Lord Melville, the Right Hon. Frederick Robinson, president of the Board of Trade, Mr. Lushington, and the principal commercial gentlemen connected with the shipping interests. The Earl of Liverpoo1, oil proposing " Prosperity to the Shipping Interests," expatiated on tlie ad- vantages we had derived from our navigation laws, and sa il it was by tlu promotion and salutary application of the true principle of those la ts, not bv the adoption of fanciful and impracticable theories, but by a real and careful attention to the situation of the country, that England could look to the permanent securily of her naval system, to the maintenance of her national honour, to tho enjoyment of her happin ss, and to the general diffusion of those blessings which attended well regulated industry and enterprise.— The Hon, F. Robin- son, iu making his acknowledgements for having his health drank, snid he was deeply impressed with the truth of those opinions, beliving them to be highly essential to the main- tenance of our navy, and the security of the country.— The Chairman and other Ministers left at half- past 10.

" Great struggles about. this time among men clinging to their places, amd others who fear they shall never get them.

Extraordinary Flight of Starliigs.—. Not long since a most extraordinary flight of Starlings was seen at Lydiard- park, near Wotton Bassett, the seat of Lord Bolingbroke ; they rose like a thick impervious cloud, and with a noise resembling the turbulent roaring of the sea ; in their ascent they came in contact with a phea- sant which had just risen, and with the shock killed the bird ; when in the air it was supposed they extended over nearly fifty acres of land. They were fired at by Mr. Mulliugs, solicitor, of Wotten-- Bassett, who at one shot killed 150 of them !— Cheltenham Chron. For Colds, Coughs, Asthmas, & jc. tHE PECTORAL ELIXIR.

This dues not appear however to lie very likely, as such a circumstance would very soon be promulgated in the city, Ordinary causes likely in general to influence the Funds, such as a deficiency in the ' revenue, and a demand for money, at present make no . impression on the market.
