ALDNESS or GREY HAIR will sure not be seen by using PRINCE'scelebrated RUSSIA OIL, as it is so improved with an extra j valuable Ingredient, through which it has made the j Russia Oil the greatest Nourisher and Preserver to ; the Hair in the Universe, w ill make it grow thick and I long, and prevent its falling off or ever turning Grey; and is such a Nourisher to the Roots ofthe Hair, that if it even has began to turn Grey, will restore it again to its natural Colour, and, if used often, it will never turn Grey again, and is sure to clear tbe Scurf, from. Infancy to old Age, and will alwavs keep the Head and Hair clean and beautiful. Gentlemen who have lost their Hair, and have the least Sign of Roots of Hair remaining, by using re- gularly, for a few Months, Prince's Improved Russia Oil, with the extra valuable Ingredient, will be sure to restore it, and produce a fine Head of Hair, which Hundreds have experienced. Even Medical Gen- tlemen have published, ill the Gazette of Health, that Prince's Russia Oil is superior to any Oil for the Hair, and will do, in Cases of Baldness and weak Hair, what can possibly be done in the thickening, strengthening, and restoring it, if there is the least Sign of Roots. Ladies will find Prince's Russia Oil preferable to any otber Oil for dressing their own or false Hair, as it gives it a natural Gloss, softens aud curls it. Gen- tlemen Wearing Powder ought to use it instead of Pomatum: it also produces Eyebrows, Whiskers, & c. Proved by Affidavit, the 24th of November, 1814, before the Lord Mayor of London, that A, Prince is the Original Proprietor in the Universe of the Russia Oil ; and therefore if any Perfumer, Medicine Vender, Hair Dresser, or any one else, sell Russia j Oil, that is not Prince's, they are Impostors, as they sell Counterfeits to their Customers. It is no Wonder that Ladies and Gentlemen have complained of late of ihe Russia Oil not being of Service to tbe Hair, as they have found out that un- principled Persons have sold them Counterfeits. Ladies and Gentlemen will be particular, as Impostors in Great Britain, France, and other different Parts of the Continent, have made the Covers of tbe Counterfeit Russia Oil so much like the Genuine, and some, more to deceive, falsely have printed on their counterfeit Covers " the Original," or " Genuine Russia Oil ;" and some even are so daring, although they know it is punishable, to put tbe Original Proprietor's Name, and pretend they are sent by the Proprietor, and also copied the Affi- davit of the Original Proprietor, made before the ; Lord Mayor; therefore Purchasers should be can- j tious, and have ii ofthe Proprietor, or of respectable i and principal Perfumers, Medicine Venders, and ! Hair Dressers, where tbey may rely on their not ! selling them Spurious. . | Ask for Prince's Improved Russia Oil. with the extra Ingredient, and observe " Prince" on the Wrapper and Seals ; and his. Address, " A_. Prince, 1 9, Poland- Street-, Oxford- Street, London," is on the j Cover of each Bottle; without, it is not gmuine, and j cannot answer the Purpose. The Ounce Bottle 5s. ! or a large Bottle, containing- five Ounces, £ 1, which ; is a saving; or six large Bottles for £ 5, which is yet j a greater saving. j Sold, Wholesale, Retail, and for Exportation, by | the sole Proprietor, A. Prince, removed to No. 9, j Poland- Street, Oxford Street, near the Pantheon ; j and by Mr. Smyth, Perfumer to bis Majesty, New i Bond- Street ; Hendrie, Ticbhorne- Street; and by i most principal Perfumers and Medicine Venders. j Observe— There are Trash Counterfeits selling in 1 petty Shops for any small Price, which are injurious to the Hair, but the Genuine is only sold in two S: 7. ps, in 5s. and 20s. Bottles. 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. Observe, there are Persons who, finding they " cannot now impose by selling Counterfeit Russia Oil ( it being now well known that Prince's is tbe Original and Genuine), so they pretend to sell Bears' Grease, but it is well known that Bears' Grease, or any other hard Grease alone, is loo harsh for the Hair, and makes the Hair fall off. Preparing for the Press, And soon will he published, in Quarto, the Fifth Volume of the Rev. Dr. LingarcVs History of England. rpms VOLUME will comprise THE II REIGNS OF TIIE SISTER QUEENS, MARY AND ELIZABETH. The Reign of Mary, though short and inglorious, is not devoid of Interest; and the Restoration of the Catholic Worship, the Persecu- tion of the Reformers, and the Conspiracies and Insurrections of the Discontented, are Subjects which will claim and engage the Attention of the Reader. The long Reign of her Successor, a Reign which occupied nearly the Half of a Century, will offer to his View a Succession of . still more interesting Events. He will observe the Steps by which Elizabeth abolished the ancient, and introduced the reformed, Hierarchy and Worship ; the Severities with which she repressed the Discontent of the Catholics and the Intemperance of the Puritans ; her ambiguous, and often unjustifiable, Conduct towards the unfortunate Mary Stuart • her Intrigues with the Scottish, French, & Flemish Religionists ; and her Wars, the Consequences of those Intrigues, with their several Sovereigns ; the Extension of the English Commerce under her Auspices ; the Triumphs of the English Navy over the formidable •; Fleets of Spain ; the successive Rise and Fall of I her different Favourites ; and the Cares, the Sor- j rows, and the Despondency of her declining Age. j It is difficult to imagine Subjects better calculated ! to interest the Feelings of Englishmen. j In the Composition of this Volume, the Author has carefully compared the Narratives of preceding Writers ; has perused with Attention the many Collections of State Papers belonging to the Period ; and has frequently consulted the Dispatches of the French, the Spanish, and the Imperial Ambassadors. He is satisfied with the Result of his Researches :— they have enabled him ( so ut least he flatters him- self) to elucidate much that has beeu thought obscure, and to discover much that has- been hitherto unknown.

And since January, 1822, Prince's Russia Oil was improved with the extra Ingredient, through which it will always keep pleasant in this or in any other Climate, and it is proved, the older it is the more it nourishes and preserves the Hair. Several Captains that have come from the Continent have declared, that whenever tbey landed Merchandize, they have been asked if they had anv of Prince's Russia Oil : therefore Merchants will find an Advantage in exporting it. ft- Tt3 Merchants and Captains will receive a liberal Allowance for Exportation. F EW Diseases have been found more perplexing than ihe Hooping Cough, and the Medicines usually administered for this alarming Complaint having proved totally ineffectual, Mr. PARSONS is induced, nfler several Years Experience of its Efficacy, to offer his Medicine to llie Politic as a safe and certain Remedy. The Patient will sooil be relieved from lhat con- vulsive Affection termed Hooping; and by perse- vering strictly according to the Directions, tivo or three Packets liuve almost invariably been found sufficient lo effect a certain Cure.

( Si <• iili page.) Ii appears froui the Dublin Papers received this day, that the officers of the Crown had not deter- mined wbetb( r to prosecute the perpetrators of the late atrocious outrage . at tlie Theatre for High Treason, or for a Biot.; An application was made ou Wednesday to admit the offending parties ( who ft re of low situation iu life) to bail, but ihe presi. ing Magistrate said he could not come to any decision at present, being of opinion that, coupled with the preceding transactions, the- offence. amounted to a levying of war against the King and Government, which is High 7' reason, and that those persons with whom he was bound to consult concurred with him i. i bis opinion.

The house is reduced to a mere . shell, nothing being left but the wails. The fire raged with so much fury, that a very small portion of the valuable furniture could be saved.

We siaud in our last Journal, lhat, at tiie late Ludlow fair, Mr B. d . oes sold one of his noble Hereford oxen to Mr. Sankey, of Clungunford, for 50 guineas—. price which, in these times, is of itself sufficient to mark the estimation in which Mr, B's slock is held hy competent judges. On Saturday, the 14lh iust. this fine anim;. l was killed ( being shot, ai. d not knocked down); and on Tuesday the I7lh, was cut up, a numerous body of gentle. nee. farm rs, anil other respectable individuals having a- s, nibl. il lo inspect the dissected portions, which, for quality aud appearance they pro. lounc, o superior to that of any ox they had ever seen.

Jane Williams, an aged widow, many years a respectable shop- keeper, in Ihe above village, and who was generally thought lo have amassed a little wealth, was found murdered behind her shop counter on Tuesday morning. A little granddaughter declared that in the night she heard her grandmother cry murder two or three times, but was too much frlghleiH'd to stir. Three persons are supposed to have h. en concerned. They bad dragged their unfortunate victim from her bid ; llle shop diaw- crs, & LC. were broken open, and several articles stolen, as well as what money she might have had in ll. em.

To the Editor of the Salopian Journal. Sm, My last SKETCH was devoted to the Iiarp of Wales. The transition from music to poetry is easy and natural. 1 design, therefore, on the present occasion, to say something about ti. e ancient '. VeJsh bards, - those, 1 mean, that give celebrity to the tirst epoch of Welsh literature. For it may not be generally known, that there are two eras particuluily distinguished, in the history of Wales,, for the poetical genius, by wh. ch tcey were adorned. These aie the sixth and twelfth centuries. It is of the votaries of the nu en. who lived during- the first, or these periods, that I now purpose to gi. e some ; c. mint; and among them I shali confine myself to i e mo*! eminent, who, as the popular voice hei immeniirially pointed ihem out, are Taliesiny zio. urin, and Llywarcb Hen. 7 he iirst of these was a native of Wales, and consumed, amongst her mountains, the ta; er of life, dedicating to favouiite aw.- n his youth, his manhood, and his declining years. 1 he two latter were k m, in the North of England, among a people, w'mj claimed Kindred origin with the inhabitants of Wales, and who were identified with them both in manners and language, " hey were, in a word, Ci/ wiy ; and the two bards, of whom 1 am speaking, have, there- fore, ever been enrolled amongst the poets of that country, w hich proved to hern an id « > « during the troubles of their nai ve land, aud became, at once, the nurse of their genius aud the guardian of their fame. I begin with Taliesin, as he is more emphatically Welsh than the other two But, however he may on this account, he entitled to the precedence, cannot but admit, that his claim to this distinction for any other reason is extremely equivocal. In popular repute, indeed, he has always stood pre- eminent, majestically lording it over his bardic compeers. Not only in Wales has this been the case, but, wherever Welsh poetiy has been at all known, the name of Taiiesin has beeu associated with it as that of its brightest ornament But the fact seems to be, that Taliesiu has been more eulogised than read, an i, perhaps 3 may add, more read than understood. Of ail Hie early poets e" Wales he is, decidedly, ttie most obscure ; for however the irradiations of genius may occasional shed their lustre1 upou his productions, their genera characteristic is a mystical gloom, which no inge- nuity can now penetrate. his is, obviously, the result of the bard's proficiency in the occult lore of the Druids, to wh ch he appears to have been remarkably attached. Ilukvd, he is the only Welsh poet, ihat seems to have made this specie s of learn- ing nss particular study. Several of his effusions are expressly devote d to it ; a, « d ot'ie. s, that are nominally historical, nre strongly i impregnated with his mystical ' predilections. Of the seventy- eight poems, however, preserved under his name, theie are a few of a litferent character; and many passages might be detached from others, which indicate, at once, the genius and taste ofthe poet. I shall subjoin two short extracts • s » justification of what 1 have now said. The first is from the " Battle of Argoed Llwyvaiu," which I shall quote in the spirited translation of the late Mr. Whitehead. Morning rose, the issuing sun Saw the dreadful fight begun ; And the sun's descending ray Closed the battle, closed the day. Flamddwyn* po. n ' d bis rapid bands, Legions four, oVr Reged's lands. The numerous host, from side to side, P > ur'd destruction far and wide ; From Argoed's summits, forest crown'd, 7 o steep Arvynydd's utmost bound. Short their triumph, short their sway, Born and ended with the day. The whole poem is in a similar strain, and is well worthy of the reputed fame of the author. The lines that follow are extracted from another of his historical p > ems . the version is literal. I saw mighty men, Who thronged together at the shout: I saw blood on the ground From the assault of swords. They tinged with blue the wings of the dawn, When they flung forth their ashen spears. It is impossible not to be struck with the novelty as well as poetical beauty of the thought conveyed in the last couplet. I lad Taliesin written always thus, how well would he have merited tl e renown, which the popular suffrages have conceded to him. Of Anenrin it may be said, in a few words, that his poetry is more uniform, and far less obscure, than that of Taliesin, being entirely free from any mixture of Druidical myst: cism. ' There are but two productions extant under his name, and one only of these bears internal evidence of its genuine- ness. This is the Gododin, the most celebrated, as well as the longest, of all the ancient Welsh poems:- it sings or the disastrous battle of Cat- traeth, which proved fatal to the power of ti e Cymry of North Britain, and ih consequence of which Aneuriu and his family were compelled to seek refuge in Wales. The Gododin is not, how- ever, as some have imagined; an epic poem : it is rather heroic th n epic, and, at all events, has nothing in common whh the ce'e- rated master- pieces of other countries, which hear the latter ' esignnti ij. It must not be* iudgv •, therefore, by the rules of Aristotle or RosSu. It has no well- contrived fable, no regular '' design, no defioi e object. Whatever may have been its original form ( for ; t has, evidently, descended t 1 us in a mutilated state), it presents now little m we than a * A name given by the Welsh bards to the celebrated Saxon chieftain, Ida. It implies The Flame- bearer. collection of elegiac and encomiastic stanzas on the warriors wbo felt in the battle, iu which the poet was also engaged. The style, like the subject, is devious and irregular, and resembles an assemblage of mountain oaks in their native rudeness and dis- order. The poem, in short, may be characterized, i: i the words of au ingenious writer,* rather as so many u poetic memoruntia of a disastrous conflict, j. ehiied. by a person who had witnessed its events in all the confusion, in which they hud occurred, than as a vveil conceived and artfully arranged series of individual contests, like the poem of Homer, which, though genuine as to the author, , yet contains incidents, which the poet's invention has arranged as it pleased." And, to adopt tffe exp ession ofthe same writer in another place, the G dodin u has no elegant or artificial invocations : the bard was a warrior and had fought in the c on'diet he describes. He was commemorating friends and fellow soldiers : he had to state what he saw. There is, therefore, no reflective or eiined address. He bursts at once into his subject, and begins by describing, uot his plan or purpose, but one of his heroes." The metre, in which the Gododin is written, is a mixture of the lyric and the full heroic rhyme mtnoh to Welsh poetry. The opening liues, alluded to in the extract last quoted, are in the lyric measu. e ; and i here subjoin a metrical English version of tbem, and which is, at the same time, as literal as the different characteristics of the two languages will allow. Lo ! the youth, in mind a man, Daring in the battle's van ! See the splendid warrior's speed On his fleet and tlijck- maned steed. As his buckler, beaming wide, Decks the courser's slender si , e, With his steel of spotless mould, Ermined vest, and spurs of gold. Think not, youth, that e'er from me Hate or spleen shall flow to thee : Nobler meed thy virtues claim, Eulogy and deathless fame. Aii ! much sooner comes thy bier Than thy nuptial feast, I fear ; Ere thou mak'st the foeman bleed, Ravens on thy corse shall feed. Ovvain, lov'd companion, friend, To hires a prey— is this thy end ? Tell me, steed, on what sad plain Thy ill- fated lord was slain ? Another passage, which contains a specimen of the " full heroic rhyme" above mentioned, will be sufficient to give the English reader some notion of the Gododin. The translation in this case is still more literal than in the former. None made the social hall so free from care As gentle Cynon, Clinion's sovereign lord ; For highest rank he never proudly strove, Aud whom he once had known he ne'er would slight. Vet was his spear keen pointed and well knew To pierce, with truest aim, th' embattled line. Swift flew his steed to meet the hostile storm, And death sat on his lance, as, with the dawn, He rush'd to war in glory's brilliant day. There is something in this passage calculated to awaken our classical recollections. It supplies, in particular, a parallel to some parts of the Iliad, in which the same interest1 ng allusion to the private qualities of a fal len chief accompanies the eomme- mo ation of his heroic virtues ; a feature, that may likewise he traced in the strains of the Bard of Co a. But the poem of Aneurin, I repeat, has nothing in common with the general characteristics either of the Homeric muse, or of the reputed effusions of Ossian. Such accidental resemblances as that here noticed belong to the na ural affinities of genius, when acting un er tbe impulse of feeling, and unembarassed by any a tificial restraints. It was my intention to add to the foregoing- some notice of Llywarch Hen, who completes the bardic triumvirate above mentioned. But the length to which iny observations have unexpectedly carried me, compels me snddenly to check my career, and to reserve what I had to say for some future SKETCH. ORDOVEX. DEC. 21, 1822.

Its Objects, they trust, are such os will not fail, to commend themselves to such intelligent and enquiring Youth as are desirous of unitii g in their Reading, correct Taste, useful Knowledge, and soiid P ety. Its Contents are partly original, and partly selected: a, d they hope," that each Department will be so conducted, that their Magazine will uot only form an agreeable Monthly Visitor, intro ducing to their Readers Subjectsat once diversified, inieiesting, and scientific; hut will, likewise, be- come eventually a choice and well- stored Library, containing, in Addition to much origiual Maiter, some of the most valuable Articles in the English Language; to which plea nag and proti, able R,' " eieace ni y be made in subsequent Years. Great Care has been taken to exclude from their Pages every iinuioial Sentiment and indelicate Allusion. 1 heir Volumes, they hope, may be read in the Family Circle, from Beginning to End, without raising a Blush, or exciting the least Impropriety of Feeling. And with'Respect to Religion, though tliey would carefully avoid the laboured Effort to introduce it, aud especially in its graver and less welcome Forms, yet they still feel desirous that its Influence should i,' e perceptible through the Whole of their Work. A slight Alteration has taken place in a Part of . heir original Plan. Some of their Articles, tl. ev perceive, were in the first Instance somewhat too juvenile to suit the general Tas'e. This Defect, however, they have endeavoured in their li ter Numbers to remedy : and they hone, n their sub- sequent Pages, to admit nothing which CMI in strict Propriety he denominated PUERII F.

The next Meeting will be held, on the Second Tuesday in July. W. EGERTON JEFFREYS, Secretary. couragement of Agriculture, the Rev. Gentleman appealed to the good sense of the Meeting, w hether the language of that paragraph was at all Calculated to effect the purpose? Whether language that de- picted in perspective nothing bnt bankruptcy, ruin, and pauperism to tbe farmer was likely to promote or encourage agriculture ?— whether it would not, on the other hand, tend to paralyse the exertions of the industrious, to deter capitalists from land investments, and land improvements, and to plunge the emharras- ed into absolute despair ? He thought a report should be consolatory— such as to rouse into action propor- tionate to the pressure of the times the energies of the farmer. The Rev. Gentleman « as repeatedly cheered, and concluded by seconding the motion. SirT. B LETHBRIDGE, Bart objected to any alter- ation of ihe Report. He considered that the truth, however lamentable, should be disclosed. The pros sure of the times was great— was unprecedented ; and it was the duty of the Society to announce to the pub- lic the exact condition of the farmer. It was the opinion of the Hon. Bart that tbe distress, hqwever great, could he remedied by the Legislature; hitherto he considered that proper attention had riot been paid by Government— that snch means of amelioration which had been proposed, had always been rejected by an overwhelming majority. He hoped that the Society wonld again send a petition, similarly framed as the last,— by perseverance he had no doubt but that the object would he ultimately attained Sir JOHN SMITH, in a very , neat speech, defended the Report, and expressed his concurrence i » the facts stated, from his own experience in four counties. After some observations from Mr. BAILWARD, lie was followed by Mr. ELWIN, who objected to so harsh a measure as the expunging part of a Report, merely on the ground of a difference of opinion; and ex- plained that the reception, and even confirmation, of a Report of a Committee, did by no ipeans go the length of pledging the Society, or tbe Meeting, to the adoption of the measures, or the sentiments, con- tained in it: but only that it contained nothing that should prevent its being recei ved, and its suggestions discussed. He attributed the present distress to the markets being overstocked, there being a greater quantity of produce than can be consumed It ap- peared to be the opinion of the gentlemen that the price of corn would be raised if the farmer would prpperly regulate the quantity of produce according to the expected consumption. The Hon. Gentleman very perspicuously illustrated this by the present de- teriorated state of * A'est India produce. Sir J. Cox HIPPISLEY, Bart, did not consider the situation of affairs so very alarming. The Hon. Bart, gave a very luminous detail of Mr. Peel's Bill, and of the circumstance; which led to its introduction — it originated with the late 8/ 1 r. Horner. With respect to his own tenants, he fqnqd them all satisfied w ith a reduction of20 percent. Hitherto he had experi- enced no difficulty in letting any farm when vacant at such reduction. Mr Pooi, R deprecated any diminution of the cul- tivation of the country ; and considered that great re lief might be afforded bv equalizing the poor- rates, reducing tlie rate of interest, and < Jiuiinj § hinff 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 circulating medium, and made various pertinent observations on the state of trade during and after the war. He concluded bv stating his opi- nion that the remedy lay between flie landlord and tenant— that the former should to a certain point re- duce his rent, and the latter increase his exertions to render his land more beneficial. Mr BENETT, M. P. for Wilts, in a very neat and intelligent speech, commented oil some pijrl? of Mr. Payne's observations. He flatly asserted that during a certain period of the war a pound note and a sUillin were by no means equal to a guinea; and that a farmer who brought a sack of wheat into Devizes market being offered four one pound notes by one customer, anil three guineas in gold by another, TirSf^ p*;-*;'. ;};:? Setter, hr eo^ j'. d tbe fiiMw* for 27s ejveh which would » ul Is. more into his pocket-—( Hear! and a laugh)— Mr. Benett con- cluded by recommending the agriculturists by no means to despair, but to unite in their endeavours to remove the difficulties under which tbey laboured, and from which, he had no doubt, they woijld ere long be relieved. Mr. VVEBBEWESTON followed, and with great good humour, and a happy style of ironical and judicious observation, commented ou the distress of the landed interest, and defended the Report. He shewed the fallacy of the general supposition that landlords had it in their power to afford adequate relief to their tenants without becoming paupers themselves, on account of the burthens they had to bear, and con- tended that the rise of rents at various times had only nominally enriched the landowners, as their public burthen? aud family settlements had constantly risen in a greater ratio. He acknowledged to bave more than trebled his estates within ihe last 40 years ; hut it had been of no other advantage than enabling bim to bear the increasing pressure of the taxes, and the rise on every article of consumption : and, moreover, that, generally speaking, the high prices had not benefitted the farmer in the degree supposed, because his rent aud price of labour reduced his profits in pro- portion. Now if rent was reduced to what it was 40 years ago, the price being- below what they were then, aud his burthens much greater, lie could not live any more than bis landlord, who bad so reduced his rent, while he had the present burthens to bear. Hence he contended that relief we must have from ! some quarter or other, and he trusted that the energy of six millions of British laud cultivators and land owners was not so lost as tamely to submit to their ruin and degradation, without making any efforts to preserve live reuniant of that property bequeathed them by their ancestors or procured by their own in- dustry— which placed them in a very different situa- tion from speculators, to whom Jthey had been com- pared, by an hon. member, saying, that their specula- tions having failed, they were worthy ofthe same com- passion as others who had failed iu their speculation.

One great cause of the distress had arisen from the $ dious credit which enabled us to carry on the unneeesoary but glorious war. in which he was duped among- others so as to offer his life and property for its support; though, at that lime, a noble friend of his ( Lord King), reprobating the extended currency, and fore- telling the evil consequences which we feel now, laughingly said, lie ought to b$> perfectly satisfied that the Government had condescended to'take only one of the tvyo offers, viz. his property, and left hiiii his life. 1 Mr. FUGE, after the explanation that had been given of the formality of receiving and confirming the Report, withdrew his opposition, and the Report was eonfifined.

The Show of Live Stock was large, and fully equal to any former year in fine specimens of the perfection , to which the arts of feeding and fattening can be brought.

A Glasgow Paper says, " A Correspondent in The Inverness Journal says> that, tiie plan of reduction of rents adopted by ihe Noble Family of Stafford, on their estate in Sutherland, is very judi- cious, and well calculated to enable the tenant tq keep his ground.

To the small tenants they have adopted a still more liberal scale of reduction, besides the numbers they support by labour at their extensive coal and salt works, and by hand- some bounties for fishing, aqid various sourccs of profitable labour." SirJ Graham, Barf, of JJetherby, has forgiven all arrears of rent due qver his vybole estates, up tq thc current year; and granted a reduction, varying from ft M> 30 per cenjt. according to the circumstances of each case, for two ye^ r § certain; at the expiral)(> n of which time the rents are to lie regulated according . to the price of the principal articles of farm produce.

Asricullural Distress. o At the request of several eminent Agriculturists, we copied into our Journal of the 2d of October last, a letter, signed " MFRCATOR," the writer of which, it is understood, is an eminent Member of the present Administration. A second letter on the same subject, and from the same pen, has just appeared, which we uow subjoin for the persual of our Readers:— Liverpool, Dec. 10. SIR,— In my letter addressed to you, and published in your Paper of the 426th August last, I ventured to take a view of what! conceived to be the causes which have produced the existing Agricultural Distress, and to suggest what appeared tome the only practical means for providing an early, though not a permanent, remedy for that evil. Since then, the growing necessities ofthe farmers have, with few exceptions, forced them to send their crops to market in quantity exceeding the consump- tion or demand, which has caused still further de- pression in prices that were before ruinously low ; although il is generally admitted that the last crop of BRIGHTON, DEC. 15.-— HIS Majesty attended Divine Service in his Private Chapel this morning.

The German Papers bring accounts from Con- stantinople to the middle of the lasl month. The hiwhas state vf that city, during the fmrt half of \ > viin her, presents a faithful indication of the disordwe^ condition. of Ihe Empire. Fdr a" con- siderable tiuiVth* Janissaries- and Metropolitan Rabble held a divided authority with the Emperor; and as always happens in such contests, the Monarch was compelled to submit, dismissing his Ministers, to receive a substitute at the head of his mutinous soldiers and rebellious subjects. To add to Ihe amount of its calamities, the Ottoman Government has suffered a decisive overthrow on the Persian frontier. There is also a report of a great victory obtained by the united Christian forces at Missolunghi. N The following took place at Swinderby, between 1 incoln awl Newark, on Friday, the Gth inst. A labourer's wife, of the name of Clarke, had gone out to see a neighbour, leaving two of her children and a third of another person's playing together in the house their ages from three to six years. She had not been long absent when the third child was seen running out of the house with its clothes on fire An alarm being given, the mothers of the < hildren ran to the place, and with some difficulty the lire was extinguished, though with severe injury to the child, whose destruction was pre- vented by a woollen garment which she had on. In the midst of Ihis alarm, the poor woman, Clarke, perceived that one of her own children was missing, and at length discovered that the little mature was actually in the oven ( a large one of brick), in the entrance of which a quantity of shavings were then blazing. Upon these being extinguished the child was found at the farther end - its jaws fixed, and evidently in a state of suffocation, in which it lingered for a few hours, and was then relieved by death. It appeared that the child had crept into tbe oven in its play, and on refusing to come out, the other two had set lire to the shavings, and in so doing the clothes ot one of them look fire as above described. CHURCHES.— The writer of this paragraph has been frequently asked the reason, why the Cathedral ot Winchester,* and many other churches, do not . land directly east and west ? lie could only repeat what he had collected in the course of his reading, tbat as our ancestors were by no means well ac- quainted wilh astronomy and natural philosophy, thev took that point ol the horizon w he. e the Sun- r„ ve on the dav of the Saint to whom the church was to he dedicated Peihaps as this is a circumstance „ , t generally known, it may not he uninteresting lo oiveat Ir no th a valuable authority upon the subject, Tiled bv a no less valuable writer- 1- In the old time when thev v. e, e to build churches, they watched and nra\ ed all night on the vigil ot the dedication, and took that point of the horizon, where the Sun - nose for the east, which is the reason of that great variation of the positnre of churches as to the due , , st • so that, except those lhaf are dedicated about Hie equinoxes, few are true.

Ambrose. 2, p. 303 iu noils, edit. wheat was less in quantity, but harvested iu superior condition, to the preceding, whilst the growth of nil other grain and pulse was very different. In Ireland, with the exception of certain districts in the North, the wheats prove lean and light, when compared wiih those of the two preceding years; their oats are everywhere very ordinary ; and in Scotland, the qualities of all grain are found generally inferior. As I did anticipate, I find the quantity of wheat sown this autumn is, from various causes, less than last, and I understand in many districts, from the j inability of the farmer, the lands had not heen pre- ! pared to receive the seed with the usual extent cf j labour or of manure ; it is, therefore, more than pro- ; bable, lhat, should the ensuing season prove an ordinary one, the next crop will rot be found equal • to the requisite supply. The consumption of wheat is now increasing in a j ratio of which mailv are nol aware: in those dis- j Iriets, where oatmeal bread has hitherto heen the i common food of the people, almost none bnt what is • made of the best wheal en four is to be seen, and in | almost all quarters ( liis description is now generally ; consumed, where mixed flour formerly was in com- 1 uion use. So low has the price fallen for the inferior j wheats of ihe e. rop of 1S21, that they are given in j considerable quantify to horses aud to stock, in pre, j ference to oats or olher grain ; there is also a general . waste and improvidence prevailing in the use, such ; as usually attends great abundance, and low prices, j The period is now approaching for the meeting of Parliament ; when it arrives, we may expect to see ; numerous petitions presented from the agricultural body, calling for a renewed investigation of the ' causes of their distress, and soliciting protection i and relief from the Legislature. In making such an appeal, it seems to he the duly of the parties to point ! out such means as are practical in their nature for affording them relief, and lhat are in the power of Parliament to adopt, without injury or injustice to the community at large. My object in again addres- sing myself to you, is to state the opinions which I entertain on this important subject, and to submit them for the consideration of those more immedi- ately interested, should they be thought deserving attention. Under the system of our Com Laws, previous fo the Act of last Session, it may he said the limits for the admission of foreign corn, did ( with perhaps the exception of oats,) give almost a monopoly of the market to the home grower; from this principle, that Act made but a slight deviation, and such, as I fear, is not susceptible of practical beneficial appli- cation. Whilst our growth remained beneath our consumption, during the war. and foreign corn was necessary to meet the deficiency, the prices were un- avoidably regulated by the extent of thai supply, and the terms on which it could he obtained. As our ports were, almost without interruption, open for a number of years, the existing law became next thing to a dead letter. The experience of ti e last four an average, must be added not less than 5$. per quarter for the expense of transport to the shipping- port, of preparation for shipping, of granary rent whilst collecting, and of agent's commission, with other smaller charges until put free on hoard, which will bring the cost when so shipped to 35s. to 40s. per quarter. The freight, insurance, and landing independent of the risk of condition, cannot, on hu average, he taken at less than 8s. per quarter — to which is to be added the profit expected by the importer, and for this I will only allow 2s. per quarter, making the whole cost, delivered at a Bri- tish port,- 45s. to 50s. according to quality. I think it is admitted, or will he so, that when the reduction which has generally taken place in the price of labour, of horses, utensils, and most of the necesaries required for farming purposes, is considered, 20s per quarter, or an advance of above 50 per cent, on the continental shipping price,. will cover the excess of rent of laud, and additional burdens, to which our growers are necessarily and unavoidably subject. With this before ine, I would propose, that the importation of foreign grain should at all times be permitted, subject to a duty not exceeding 15s, per quarter on wheat ( and in that proportion on oilier grain); this would give a pro- tecting price of 60s. to 65s. per quarter, with tbe prospect aud probability of steadiness that. might be expected to keep it generally near that point — if it fell under, foreign import, would cease; if. it advanced materially, lhat import would increase, but the fact of advance would prove the necessity for it that existed: when, in such cases, as soon as the six weeks average price reached 70s. per quarter, I would propose to reduce the duty to 10s.; when it advanced to 80s. the duly to be. 2s. 6d. ; and when it went up to & 0s, the duty to cease altogether, as I he price would then establish the inadequacy of onr own, and the necessity for foreign supply, when the interests of the consumer would call for, and require, such immediate protection. It may also be fairly urged, that other nnd important national benefits would flow from such a system : thus, according to the extent of our importations of foreign grain, to that amount would the foreigner he enabled to increase his purchases of our produce aud manufactures, w hich are at present only limited and restrained by his want uf adequate means to pay for them. The more the interests of the manufacturer were thus promoted, so would he be better able to pay for the produce of our soil, and his consumption thereof be, iu lhat proportion, increased & extended. I have ventured to throw these thoughts together for the consideration of those who have a deep interest in the subject of them; aud I beg to submit, that CAPti OF GOOD HOPE. Extract of a letter Irom the Cape of Good Hope, dated October 4 : " Although our condition is somewhat better thau if was two months back, yet it still remains a far from enviable one, and almost all the settlers find them- selves most grievously disappointed in their golden expectations. The land which we have had given us in this colony is, nine- tenths of it, totally unfit for tillage; it is strongly impregnated iu many parts wilh sulphur, and in others, with a substance re- sembling salt- pet re; and it is found extremely dif- ficult to raise either wheat or barley, although we were led to understand that both would easily grow here. Potatoes are, however, found to thrive gener- ally ; and many other descriptions of English veget- ables, it is thought, will, after a liltle extra culti- vation, answer well enough. The colonists and set- tlers have, however, cerfa- hily got the worst part of the Cape, as vve J^' arn from several who have made incursions intp the. interior, that the Caff'rees have some delightful plots of ground, which only want cultivation by civilized hands, to render them valuable and productive. The late dreadful storms here have done most irreparable damage to such of the crops as the industry and indefatigability of the settlers had been able lo raise, and this is doubly disheartening, from the unusual pains which they had been compelled to take to bring them to maturity. We have had lately several cargoes of wheat from Van Die man's land, and our letters accompanying these supplies give most flattering accounts of that colony, which never fail to excite the envy of the poor settlers here. The aboriginal inhabitants of this part of the world are the most savage, uncouth, and uncivilisable set of beings you ever saw. All attempts to get them into any sort of amicable intercourse have been found impracticable, and any settler, no matter how kind his intention may be, who ventures into their possessions, is almost certain of being murdered. This has been the case with more than one among us, who having been imprudent and daring enough to go among them, have fallen vic- tims to that imprudence. In consequence of those ; acts of violence, the intercourse with the natives is | very limited, it being' found utterly impossible lo j establish any real terms of amity with lliem. They j are likewise most notorious thieves; not such petty ! ones as yours in England, but robbers by the whole- ; sale, who drive oft' whole droves of our cattle at a ! time. This arises more from a natural love of thiev- i ing than from any real want of the beasts, as Ihey ! abound in the interior with fine cattle of all descrip- tions.

The twenty- seven Gentlemen of Herefordshire ( more than half of whom are County Magistrates), who failed iu obtaining a Meeting of that County : under tiie sanction of the High Sheriff, for the j purpose of petitioning Parliament on the " unpa. i ralleled and daily increasing Agricultural Distress," i have resolved request the Lord Lieutenant to call | a County Meeting for that purpose, j The requisition for a County Meeting in Nor- : folk has been signed by a very large number of ; most respectable owners and occupiers of laud, : chiefiy the latter.

It. is well known that the war prices and high average protection from foreign import, created the inducement, and produced great exertion, on the part of the. agriculturist*;- {<••- i- mpiw* - srort* f swotf- their cultivation, which, in consequence, was carried IO an extent of growth exceeding t, he Consnm. pUoii, and of supply beyond demand : the result'lm> heen, as ever must be in/ all such cases. A gradual and regular reduction in value took place, as the difli- cuity of sale increased, until prices reached the miserable and ruinous rates at which we now see thrni. It is undeniable, that long before they reached this extreme scale of depression, they had arrived at a point much below what was necessary to remoner- '! weight as coin, ate the. growers, who have for a considerable time i been struggling with difficulties that now threaten to overwhelm them, under which many have already fallen, and others are daily falling; nor have they the power or means for resisting this crisis at which they are arrived, or of attempting to turn its tide, by furuishinga more moderate supply to the market, as their urgent wants force them rapidly and prema- turely to sell their crops, in order to meet their immediate and pressing necessities. Under such a load of distress, with their capitals exhausted, or fast exhausting, many are already without the means for following up their ordinary systems of agriculture, of which the consequences are likely to be felt in the results of the next harvest; and should they extend to the following, they can- not be looked at without apprehension and alarm : — in either case, more or less deficiency in produce is the agricultural classes. " Silver was the original standard of England, and it ought not to have been changed. Gold being a scarcer article, it is more difficult to procure it in sufficient quantities for the purposes of ch dilation, and being a softer material, it is expensive to keep it up at its due Indeed, the arguments in favour of silver, as a preferable standard, seem to be unanswerable. Gold may be dispensed with, but silver cannot, being essential for the smaller, and consequently Ihe more numerous payments. Silver, also, cannot be so easily and profitably melted down;— it cannot be exported but at a greater risk and heavier charges ;— all our accounts are kept in pounds and shillings, or in reference to silver;— it is the least subject to variation;—- il is not so apt. to be hoarded.;— and it is the general tender in Europe aud America. Hence, silver ever has, and in the judgment of the ablest men, ever will hold the prerogative of being the general standard in commercial countries; gold being always valued by silver, but not silver by gold. Why then should Great Britain bean cxCt? pti<) h ? Of Ihis famous city, the following impression of a first view is given by a late visitor:— 44 Amid the novelties that strike the European on his arrival, nothing surprises him more than tbe silence that pervades so large a capital. He hears no noise of carls or carriages rattling through the j streets, for there are no wheeled vehicles in the city, except a very few painted carts— callled arabahs— j drawn bbyuffaloes, in which women occasionally take ! the air in the suburbs, and which go only a foot's ; pace. The only sounds he hears by day, are the cries of bread, fruits, sweetmeats, or sherbet, carried ! in a large wooden tray on the head of an itinerant vender, and at intervals the barking of dogs dis- ' turbed by the foot of the passengers.— Attracted hy the beauty of the prospect, and Ihe advantages promised by the situation of the city, he is bitterly ' disappointed on walking through it, to find himself in streets roughly paved, if paved at all, encumbered of last | w, tb filth, and crowded with lazy ugly curs, of a reddish brown colour, with muzzles like that of a fox, short ears and famished looks, who lie in the middle of them, and only rise when roused by blows.

Mitford, Glyn, Twiss, and Me teal f, have investigated a proof of debt to the amount of £ 5000, tendered by Lord Kenyon against the bankrupt's estate. On the part of the creditors it was contended, that Lord Kenyon was a partner with the bankrupt, as proprietor of The True Briton Newspaper, and there- fore liable for all the debts of that concern He could not, therefore, be allowed fo prove in compe- tition with his own creditors. From the evidence of the bankrupt, it appeared that The True Briton was established in the spring of 1820; Messrs. Swift, Merle, and Stockdale, were the proprietors ; but all the funds were to be supplied by Lord Kenyon. His Lordship was to be the appellee in all disputes between the parties, and the Paper was to be con- ducted on strictly constitutional principles, civil and religious, of which Lord Kenyon was to be the judge. Lord Kenyon was also to apportion the profits of the Paper among the parties, according to tiie quantum meruit of their exertions. He had also the power of dismissal, and in the event of the profits of the Paper becoming large or enormous, he wav at liberty to apply ihem to the support of other Pi pers, the distribution of tracts, and the assistance of such charities as his Lordship might think fit. Mr. Marryatt contended, that from this evidence it was impossible to fix Lord Kenyon as a partner. His Lordship had, merely as the friend of the parties, assisted them with money, and had taken upo. u him- self the office of arbitrator, in case any dis putes should arise among them. He had not, in any in stance, appeared as a partner, nor had he it; the slightest degree participated in the profits. Mr. C. Phillips, on the other hand, argued at i'on- siderable length, that the fact of Lord Kenyt n's joint proprietorship in The True Briton Newspaper had heen clearly established. It was true that l is Lordship had not derived auy profit frojn it, as it turned out, but he might have derived considerable profit. Lord Kenyon was known to be a very cha.- ritable man. He might perhaps expend £ 500a- yeat in charities, and if the profits of The True Brit ori had amounted to that sum, they might have bene- fited him to that amount, inasmuch as he could apply them to that purpose, instead of drawing upon his private property. But the Paper benefited his Lordship in another, although noi in a pecuniary way— in a way, however, which, to a person of his Lordship's rank and consideration in ihe country, was much more important. He was known to he the head of the Anli. Catholic party in this country, and for the purpose of furthering the objects of that party he had established a Newspaper, devoted to its interests. His Lordship must therefore bear the consequences; aud it was only one proof, among many, of the unfortunate issue of political specula- lions. The Commissioners were clearly of opinion lhat the fact of a partnership had been proved ; they therefore decided that Lord Kenyon must pay off nil .' lie debts of The True Briton before he could be allowed to come iu and prove against Mr. Stockdale's private estate. e.^ il^ JI^ Y^ Si. r'^ ohn Sinclair, iiv ad- dition to/ hls- - late com'muwcaticfns on Currency, has added an explanatory paiagraphHo his'Circular, expressing his full conviction that an _ augmented value froui gold to silver,- vvoii!- d- geeatly tend to ~ relieve the . distresses- which are now experienced hi/ KENT WINTER ASSIZES. MAIDSTONE, DEC. 16.— Mr. Justice Bayley proceeded I-. I llie Towu- ball at about 10 o'clock this morning, when his Majesty's commission was opened ; the learned ,' udge then attended divine service. At about half past 12 o'clock the Grand Jury were sworn.— His Majesty's proclamation for the advancement of religion and morality having been read, the learned Judge delivered tbe charge lo the Grand Jury, of which the following is an extract:— Gentlemen,— We are met at this unusual period of the year, In ti v the experiment of a VVinler Assize, for the purpose of delivering, at this season, the county gaol of such prisoners us are therein confined. Gentle men,— It affords me matter of great satis- faction to find so general an attendance of gentlemen who have been summoned upon the countv Grand Jury. It is a most grateful sight to witness with how great readiness gentlemen of rank, consideration, and influence, come forward gratuitously with their important services whenever their country calls for their valuable assistance. Gentlemen,— There may be a difference of opinion as to the probable efficacy of the measure, upon the adoption or rejection of which this experimental circuit will decide; but I hope and trust, that so important a measure will meet with the most impartial consideration, and which will be fairly and fully ascertained by the present Assize, in connexion with those already holden or shortly to he held. There jar_ e., » j) e or two points upon which no two persons can differ, and in the justice and necessity of which all must agree; those points are, 1st, that prisoners against whom the evidence may be deficient, may he as speedily as possible removed from the dangerous tendency of prison associations, and restored to that to he apprehended, and whenever* tbe suppiv is % ad « >|> tili » R » ld as the sole legal tender found to fall short of Ihe demand, high prices will j for all sums exceeding 40 shillings, we have inevitably follow ; they must then necessarily go to ! overturned a system that had existed for about 1000 liberty to which they are by right entitled ; and creature is seen in the streets, except a few patroles 2dly, that those whose guilt shall be proved, may be and the innumerable dons, which beino- re. o- arded as removed from prison inactivity to that beneficial industry to which their sentence may consign them Gentlemen,— As many prisoners will in all proba- bility be discharged, it may he a matter worthy yyiir attention, to consider the probability of their having at this season of the year the immediate means < Tf subsistence on their liberation from confinement, and the difficulty of their honestly pursuing their ways to their respective homes; allow me, gentle- men, to press this subject upon your notice, in the hope that you may be enabled to devise some measure that may remove what may in all likelihood be termed an objection to the proposed additional cir- cuits. and the innumerable dogs, which being regarded as unclean animals by the Turks, have no other shelter than they can find under gateways and benches in the streets, whence at intervals they send forth such repeated bowlings, that it requires practice to be able to sleep in spite of their noise.— This silence is occasionally and frequently disturbed by a fire, which is announced by the pat role striking on the pavement with their iron- shod staves, and calling loudly Yangenvar; ' There is a fire,' ou which the firemen ( mostly Janizaries) assemble, and all the inhabitants in the neighbourhood of the conflagration are immediately on thealert.

RIO DE JANEIRO. Jiandinel. In consequence of the death of fhe Earl of Tankerville, a vacancy has occurred in the repre- sentation of the Borough of Berwick; and it is sialyl ihat Rear Admiral Sir J. P. Beresford has coimntuenad an active canvas to succeed Lord OMilston, who is called up to the House of Peers. _ S: r W. Elliot, Dart, aud Mr. Balfour, arc also oai. didaH' 8. that point which will admit foreign supply, when it will depend on the extent of deficiency in our home growth, and of that foreign supply, how far prices will advance beyond it. That such a period is. ap- proaching, I cannot doubt ; its first, consequence will I e, to disappoint and irritate the consumers, who have now for some time been accustomed to prices much under what thev ought, as well as what they can afford, to pay. The next effect will he to revive tiie spirits and hopes of the agriculturist, who will then be encouraged to resume bis habits of extended cultivation, from which similar results of production and depression may, in the course of seasons, be expected again to follow. Thus, it would appear, that under the present system, our growers are likely to continue to he tossed from one extreme to, another, alternately, which has already been so destructive to them, and will be ultimately found most injurious to the interests of the com- munity at large. With such facts before us, it seems highly desir- able measures should be adopted that are calculated to maintain. a steadiness of price in ordinary seasons — sorb as would afford a fair and reasonable remu- neration lo the farmer, and at the same time give the necessary protection lo Ihe consumer. To effect ihis, it appears to me necessary, at all times, to admit ihe importation of foreign corn, subject to such a duty as will be sufficient to afford protection against the additional burdens to which our growers are unavoidably subject ; bnt to cease, when actual deficiency from failing harvests produces excessive prices. In looking lo such a system, we have to put out of sight the enormous war prices; the landlords, too, must make up their minds to a reduced and moderate permanent scale of rents, and their tenantry must learn to give up many of those luxurious indulgeiicies to which they have become more or less accustomed, and resume the more homely, frugal, and industrious, but not less independent, habits of their predecessors. I am prepared to contend, that it is for the interests of our agriculturists that their growth should rather be kept within the consumption, and therefore desirable that a moderate foreign supply should, in ordinary seasons, be reejuireel, as necessary to steadi- ness in price, and for preventing the recurrence of those evils from which they are now suffering so severely. Under such a system, the inducement to excessive cultivation would, in a great measure, be put an end to: whilst a protecting- duty would prevent any considerable importation, unless it was required to make good deficiency from unfavourable seasons. It is known to every man conversant in. the corn trade, as I think i. t must be to every one who has read with attention the evidence given before the Agricultural Committees of the House of Commons, that the foreign grower, in Europe or America, cannot afford to raise good wheat under 30s to 35s. per Winchester quarter; nor will such prices induce him to extend his ordinary cultivation— to this, on years, and added materially to the oppression arising from the re- establisbment of a metallic currency.

Sport,— A respectable individual of a neighbouring village has, within the last few days, been proceeded against for the recovery of fines to the amount of £ 350, for having killed seven pheasants a few days before tbe time allowed by law.— Leitester Chronicle, Mr. Edward Holland, who died lately, is said to have left, in ready money, nearly a million and a half sterling. His nephew has become possessed of the principal pari of this immense sum. On the morning of Friday last about two o'clock, the dam, or bank head, of a new made pond at Embley, the property of Sir T. Freeman Heathcotc, Bart, gave way, owiog to the badness of the bottom, it being a peat bog', which slipped- out from under the weight of soil deposited to form the dam. The velocity of the water ( covering nearly 30 acres) was so great as to level a plaiita- j tion of timber iii 1 lie same manner as wheat is lodged afler a heavy storm of rain; nearly the whole was Covered with sand and gravel, only about a yard of the top of the trees remaining above it. Immense quantities of peat were washed up in masses of from one pound to one ton, anil strewed over the meadow belonging to Mr. G. Dawkins, which was contiguous to the pond, unel who, it is lo be feared, will be a great loser, his meadows being in many places covered with sand, That gentleman has also sustained a very serious injury by the water washing away upwards of two acres of turnips, aud nearly the w hole of the sod on which they grew. From the immense quantity of timber, peat, and fence- wood carried down by the water, which was from ten to sixteen feet in depth, the large bridge at Ower was washed away, being about 100 tons of masonry and materials; by which the road from Ringvvood to Romxey is at present rendered impassable. It is said that Sir T. F. Heatbcote employed upwarels of 100 men nearly three years in forming and making the dam of the pond, which is supposed to have bejen destroyed in about half an hour. From what could bes. een from the pond- head all surprise at the damage ceases; the depth of water being estimated at 40- feet, and its descent from the bottom of the pond to the river, at the least 40 feet more. No cattle were drowned. A foot bridge, for the convenience of passengers, has since been erected over the river on the upper side of the late bridge — Southampton Chronicle, Downs lay before us. Wa were at the foot of a short and sleep bill, Ihe morning was advanced and sultry, and among ihe woods not a breath of air was stirring. At once we were sainted by a fine bracing breeze in our faces, and hailed it with a burst of joy; we dismounted, and in the shade, at the very verge of the forest, refreshed ourselves and ihe horses. This was indeed a luxurious hour, I breathed ambrosial I gales, and felt my nerves new strung. 1 had often heard of invalids who left the city in the last stages of debility, and on arriving at these salubrious re- ; giojis, were so much recovered, that, according to j their own phrase, 4 they could buffet with, and sub- ! due a sturdy muie ;' and though healthy, experi- j enced myself a wonderful renovation both of power, and spirits. From the summit of the hill we looked i backward over the tops ofthe trees, and before us I up » n an open country quite destitute of wood, to an almost unbounded horizon.— Afler riding about six miles over these open and level Dowus, we arrived at a small neat- looking church, surrounded hy a low- wall ond joined to a parsonage house. Its appear- ance at a distance was extremely, interesting, lor the ! day was a holy oue, and though uot a single hahita- j tion had been seen, at least three hundred people : had assembled to hear Mass. Service was already closed, and tlie females, dressed in white and showy colours, were seated in parties on the grass, with green and blue, red and purple umbrellas held over them, as a shelter from the sun. Their thin features and sallow complexions distinctly marked them for country Brazilians, while the black woollen hats amj bactas, which they wore, gave them some resem- blance to a congregation of YVelsh women in summer. The older men were engaged at a little distance among- the horses, and gave to their group the ap- pearance of a fair ; the young ones were occupied iu sprightly spoils, and enlivened the scene by their clamour and vivacity ; the slaves were mingled with their Senhoras, or guarding the cattle which they rode."— The writer says, 44 Not only nil the produc- tions of agriculture are here poured forth almost spontaneously, hut ihe earth seems to be impregnated with wealth, in the strictest sense of the word.

ATTEMPT ON TIIE LIFE OF THE MARQUIS WELLESLEY. [ From the Dublin Freeman's Journal.] " The Lord Lieutenant visited the Theatre Royal in full state oi. Saturday night, and, notwithstanding the premeditated and ferocious opposition of a de- sperate band of ruffians, who went to the house fos; the express purpose of indulging their malignant passions, the. Noble Marquis was received in a man- ner which must have been highly grateful to his feelings. 41 The doors of the house were opened at half- past six o'clock, and in a few moments the pit, the upper boxes or slips, and the galleries were filled. Some of the most determined of the rioters, including a man who brought a watchman's rattle, obtained ad- mission with the first persons who entered, having' been stationed, no doubt, outside the doors long- before they were unclosed. Numerous parlies, com- posed of personages of rank and fashion, continued to flow in in rapid succession. All this time, an unusual degree of clamour, increased occasionally by cat- calls, and the creak of the rattle, prevailed. 44 At five minutes before seven the arrival of the Lord Lieutenant was announced. On his Excel- lency's appearance, the orchestra struck up God save the King, and the audience arose and greeted him with a general peal of applause, clapping of bauds, waving of hats and handkerchiefs, &<;. & c. These marks of popular approbation were aeknow. ledged by his Excellency with great grace, dignity, and feeling : he was then about to lake his chair, when the audience called for the performers to sing God save the King. All the vocalists of the Com- pany, who had previously received orders to be in attendance ready dressed, came forward and sang the anthem, the Marquis Weilesley and the whole audience— the loyul Orangemen only excepted— joining in the chorus. Tlie play, Goldsaiilh'sComedy of she Stoops to Covguer, then proceeded, without material interruption, to the close of the fifth act. When Old Hardcastle and Tony Lumpkin appe? ired with their tankards ofale, ihe Oruugemen called on them to drink the Glorious, pious, and immortal memory, a call to which the performers ( Williams and Liston) of course, paid no attention. Ti e Lord Mayor was g roaned for his obedience to the instruc- tions of the King, and some very coarse and con- temptible ribaldry was uttered occasionally against Lis Lordship, and even mueh more elevated per- sh mages; but notwithstanding these ebullitions of I;* id feeling, the Play passed off in comparative quiet. Ir was succeeded almost without the interval of a ma ment by Lord Morning- ton's celebrated and beau- tifid glee, Here in cool Grot, which the Orangemen, witih characteristic good taste, laboured lo render inau dible. About ihe merits of the composition they gavi themselves no trouble; they were loid if had been produced hy a member of the House of Welles- ley, ioid this was enough to entitle it to the honour of" tli » ? ir disapprobation. 44 TVie curtain was now let down, and the band comm.* need playing God save the King again, ac- cording lo the usual custom between the play and farce, \ vhen a quart bottle was thrown from the gallery, and falling on the stage quite close to the float or fe ot lamps was taken up by Mr. Barton, the leader of the band, aud exhibited to the bouse. A general expression of elisgt. Vt aud execration fol- lowed ; and several persons proceeded from the boxes and pit to the galleries, for the purpose of identifying und securing the offender. The band then resumed,, finished God- save the King, and played Patrick's Da\ j, the time of which the Marquis Wellesley also". marked, Many bars of this national ir had nol bee\ i performed, when another missile, a large wedge of timber, which formed the heavy part of a watchman's rattle, was aimed at the' Lord Lieutenant'* box. It struck the moulding at the top of the box, and glancing off", at the left hand corner, fell on the stage close to the door in the proscenium. Mr. Johnston, who bad been standing behind his Excellency's chluir, instantly left the Vice Regal box and went to » the gallery, where- he addressed a few bold and energetic sentences to the audience, calling upon them, as Men, and Irishmen, to point out the ruffian who h; id attempted the life of the King's representative, for1 having done his duty to his Sovereign and his country. Several Gentle- men had followed Mr Johnston to tiie gallery, and the principal rioters were imnwdiately pointed out, and carried off' in custody to the Police Office iu College street. Mr. Johnston Ihen returned to the Lord Lieutenant's box. Hie afterpiece, Tom Thumb, was performed without further disturbance, and at its conclusion, ihe audience again called on liie performers for God save the King, which was given as before. The Lord Lieutenant was again repeat- edly and warmly cheered, and having made his obeisances, retired amidst the loudest and most general expressions of rf « peet and applause " The above is a hasty sketch of the occurrences of Saturday night. The conduct of the Lord Lieu- tenant, from the beginning to the end, was just what might have been expected from a Nobleman of his high reputation. When the missiles were flung, he came forward to tbe very edge of the box, aud defying those who aimed at him, exposed his whole person, and turned his face in the boldest manner to the Gallery, from which the weapons had been thrown. The following are extracts from ihe dppositions upon oath, taken at College- street Police Office yesterday morning: — George Graham has been fully identified by Ser- jeant George Harris of ihe 7th Hussars, as the individual who maliciously threw ihe watchman's rattle at the Lord Lieutenant. A second information upon oath corroborates the above fact. Depositions on oath have been taken against two Brothers of ihe name of Handwick, carpenters, for riotous conduct. And a further information from a respectable person has heen sworn against 11. Ilandwiek, posi- tively identifying him as being the person who linew the bottle. There were six taken and detained lill yesterday morning, two of whom were liberated upou bail, as' no Charges were preferred against them. Placards, printed on narrow slips of paper, weW distributed in great quantities through the house.—• Immediately on his Excellency's entrance, a large parcel was thrown down, hy a party Who sat in one of the pigeon boles directly above tiie Lord Lieu- tenant's box, evidently with the view of attracting his attention.— The following are copies Ex- Governor of the BANTAMS Shall change his MORNING TON E!

EXTRAORDINARY FACTS.— Gibbon, who in his celebrated history of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, has left an imperishable me- morial of his enmity to the Gospel, resided many years in Switzerland, where, with the profits of his works, he purchased a considerable estate. This property has descended to a gentleman, who, out of its rents, expends a large sum annually in the pro- mulgation of that very Gospel which his prede- j cessor insidiously endeavoured to undermine, not having courage openly to assail it.— Voltaire boast- ed that with one hand he would overthrow that edifice of Christianity, which required the hands of twelve Apostles to build up. At this day, the press which he employed at Ferney to print his blasphemies, is actually employed at Geneva in printing the Holy Scriptures. Thus the self. same engine, which he set to work to destroy the credit of the Bible, is engaged in disseminating its truths. It is a remarkable circumstance also, that the first provisional meeting forthe reformation of an Aux- iliary Bible Society at Edinburgh, was held in the very room in which Hume died. " THE BEACON" NEWSPAPER.— On Monday, came on, before the New Jury Court at Edinburgh, the trial of an action brought against Mr. Duncan Stevenson, Printer of the above Paper, for a libel upon the character of James Gibson, Esq. Clerk fo the Signet, in which the damages were laid at £ 5000. Sir James Gardner Baird was foreman of the Jury, which was composed of gentlemen of great respect- ability ; and the trial occupied the attention of the Court from ten in the morning till ten at night, when a verdict was unanimously returned for the pursuer on all the issues— damages £ 500. A loud peal of applause followed this announcement, but it was speedily silenced by the Judge. The Court was crowded, and the etemand for admission su loud and clamourous as often to interrupt the pro- ceedings within doors. Shortly before the verdict was given, the doors of ihe Hall of Justice were beset with persons who awaited the issue.
