THE FUNDS.— The political events of the week have produced a stronger sensaiioit than any which, has occii. rr. ed since the downfall of Bonaparte ; iu fact, thi' panic has been carried to an extent seldom equalled at the period when this country had to contend with nearly every Power in Europe. The decline in the- fowls since Monday has amounted to nearly .' j per cent, on the extreme quotations, and between 7 and 8 per cent, since the commence-- mem of. the present account — To- day the funds have scarcely, undergone a fluctuation of £ per cent, although the expresses which left Paris on Thursday evening have brought information of a fluctuation of 2 per cent, in the French funds on that day. Consols far the account opened at 75|, and continued stationary at. this price until nearly one o'clock, when the market gave way, consols for account declining to' 75, but ii left off a shade higher, as will be seen by the prices annexed. — VVe are glad lo find that the losses in consequence of the failure of yesterdav, are chiefly sustained by persons who, from their command of capital, are enabled to with- stand the shock. Nothing certain is as yet known with regard to the extent of the failure, but accord- ing to report it amounts to nearly half a nii1,; A" sterling.— Red, Ann. ; Consuls. 75 § ; ditj< account, 75^: 4 per cents. 9o § £; new ditto Exchequer Bills 10s. 12s. prem. ; India Bonds oils. 31s. preui.; Bank Stock shut " BAXK'RI'PTS, FRBIU'AHV 1.— Richard Pinniger, late of Waichfield, Berks, corn dialer.— VV'rlliam Spriiiks, late of Brixton, Surrey, - aker.—.

Several reports prevailed at Paris on Saturday, some of them of the most afflicting kind relative to the Royal Family of Spain— that the King and all the Royal Family had been put under arrest— but the Papers, noticing some of tliem, add that no confirmation had been received. Another report mentioned is, that a counter- revolution has taken place in Madrid. VVe are authorized to repeat the statement which j we made some days since, that there is not toe slightest grounds for the rumour that any additi- onal ships are bringing forward for comm. ssion, or that there is tlie ' smallest appearance of hostile pre* parationsin any of his Majesty's arsenals- Courier.

BARON STAFFORD AND HIS AGENT.— The scenes which have been passing under our eyes for the last few weeks, have assumed such a character of outrage and violence, lhat we can no longer com- promise our duly lo the public by passing them over unnoticed. The person who appears as the hero of the drama assumes the name and title of the Honour- able James Stamp Suttnn Cooke, brother and Agent of Richard Stafford Cooke, Lord Stafford. It is hot extiaordinarv perhaps that with such pretensions he has attracted a number of adherents. In the outset, he laid a formal claim to the Castle and Estates of Sir George Jcrningluun, Bart and attempted to hold possession of the Casllc, by force, in which'he was foiled bv the prompt aud decisive conduct of Sir • George Jeruingham's Agent. Mr. J. S. S Cooke after,. wards issued notices to al! the tenants " holding under Lord Slatlord's Barony," not to pay I heir rents to Sir George Jerniiigham—- following it up w ith ano- ther, requiring them to pay their rents to himself, as the agent of ' he Baron, on pain of being distrained on, and intimating that the present rents would be lowered one half for the next seven years, and no tenant expelled from his present occupancy. Having thus laid a foundation, he proceeded lo appoint his Steward, Bailiff, Woodman, Gamekeeper, § c. fyc. and then entered upon more active operations hy employing men to cut down and carry off the timber from Sir ( forge's Estate near the town.- This oper. ation, however, was silenced by the rather tardy but safe agency of the Lord Chancellor's fiat, which shed its talismanie influence over ihe intruders, and Un- nerved their arms at once. It arrived in time lo pre- vent any serious damage, and the limber, with a few exceptions, has been quietly returned to ihe soil where it grew.— A few days ago, Mr, James Stamp Sutton Cooke sent his followers to take possession of the house and effecls of Sir George's agent, under the pretence of levying a distress for £ 1000 as rent due to the new Lord Stafford's Barony They were, however, soon expelled from the premises hut the boldness of the act, striking with dismay some of the minor tenants, induced them to pay their ha'f- rents to avoid such unwelcome visitors. This oper- ation of distraining upon the Tenants is still going on daily up to the present moment. StaJJbidshire Advertiser, Jan. 25. The same Paper, of the 1st inst. says—" The Hon. James Stamp Sutton Cooke, whose extraordinary proceedings were noticed iu our last. paper, has, wilhin the last week, been making offers of the farms of Sir George Jeruiugham's estate at half the present rent, upon leases for 21 years, and promising pos- session at Lady. day !— and ( surprising as the fact may appear to our readers) we understand that several persons have paid money in advance for the contract of such leases.!. a further sum to be paid when they shall he duly executed. On Wednesday, however, the Hon. Mr. Cooke was apprehended on a charge of havingTibtaiupd, by false pretences, from Win. Rogers ( one of Sir George's tenants) the sum of £ 17.10s. as half- rent d ue to his brother, the Baron; and on Thursday the case was heard before the Justices for the borough, but the decision upon it was postponed. The defendant was theu charged with having, by false pretences, obtained from Thomas Shelley, the sum of £ 4 as deposit money for lands iu the occupation of two of Sir George's tenants, at the rate of £ 1 per acre, the remainder to be paid when the lease should be signed. Upon this charge the Justices ordered him to stand committed— but he was liberated on bail.— Informations have been laid against the ne. w Lord^ s gamekeepers, and copies of writs served upon other persons for trespassing upon the property of Sir George Jerningham. At a public meeting of the freemen of Liverpool, on Friday, it was determined to invite Mr Huskis- son to become a candidate for the representation of that town. POSTSCRIPT. L0WI) 0jY\ Monday A'ighl, Feb. 3, 1823. The Paris Papers of Saturday morning and evening, and letters of the same date, have arrived by express The preparations for warfare ai'e carrying on by the French Government with vigour. Jlegmienffc have already begun their march from Paris and other parts of France. The Duke d'Angouleme sets out on the 18th, and will be. accompanied as far as Kourdeaux by the Duchess. M, de Laui iston will command the division of the Western Pyrenees. About Ihe end of this month a force of 50,001) French infantry will be ready to enter Spain. It appears from all the French Papers aud Letters that the French Government is determined upon carrying on warlike operations as quickly aud with as large a force as possible. It is even said that a body of French troops have already joined a corps of Spanish Royalists to oblige Mina to raise ihe siege of Scod'Urjjci. li dispositL. instance will aiy individual be more generally missed by society around ; and by the poor, in particular^ to whom his relieving hand was ever extended in the time of need, his decease will long- be sincerely felt and deeply deplored. Possessing ample means, and feelingly alive to all the kindly sympathies of our nature, in him, every charitable institution tending in any respect, to the temporal welfare or future happiness of man, always found a ready, an able, and cnearful contributor. And his memory, embalmed in the grateful hearts of mufti- ; tudes, who " shared in his beneficence unknown to the world, will long be cherished and revered: and by none more than by his affectionate domestics, who always experienced from him the tender attentions o « f a parent, rather than those of a master, and to whom he bequeathed, with his last and dying- blessing, a large share of his wonted munificence. Along with this testimony to his private and inestimable worth, it may be observed, that, in matters of mercantile business, Mr. Craig- was a brilliant example of what a British Merchant ought to be— gentlemanly, correct, liberal, honourable. On the whole, it may with truth be asserted, that, perhaps, as an useful and as an ornamental member of society, the excellency of his character has seldom been equalled and never surpassed.

He was a man of rural mind and most amiable disposition and goodness of heart, of the strictest honour and probitf, and deservedly possessed the esteem and affection of all whom he was acquainted with. On Friday last, aged 53, Mr. Robert Alcock, cloth worker, of this town. A few days ago, at Hughley, near Much Wenlock, in the 76th year of his age, Mr. Thomas Madeley, a respectable farmer, whose character was marked with integrity and many social virtues. At his Cottage, the Tantan, Argyleshire, on the 7th of June last, in the 34th year of' his age, Colin Anderson, Esq, late a Captain in the 19th Lancers, in which Regiment he had served nearly a period of twenty years, joining that Corps while stationed in the East Indies. His gentlemanly deportment aud urbanity of manners ( with the strictest sincerity in friendship) will make his early loss long and sincerely felt and lamented by the select few of his friends and acquaintances. On the 24th ultimo, at Newport, in this county, Mrs. Esther Topham, aged 70. She lived in the service of the late Walter Harvey Thursby, Esq. of this town, and his excellent Lady, as house- keeper, from the day of their marriage, to the moment.- of their deaths, a period of hftv years Discreet and prudent in her conduct, gentle and kind in her temper and demeanor, warmly attached and faithfully zealous to the best interests of her master and mistress, she lived a rare example of perfect integrity in the station in which she was placed ; her upright and truly christian course gave to the reflections of old age a peace, religion only can bestow ; and under the painful decay of nature, this good and faithful servant, sweetly illustrated the following observation " The suf- ferings of the body are soon over, but the joys of conscience have no end :" for she calmly resigned her breath supported by faith and hope in a glori- ous immortality, truly beloved and lamented. On the 26th ult.. " at Eardiston, near Ludlow, Lady Smith, relict of Sir William Smith, Bart. She was a sincere and disinterested friend. To the poor she was ever kind and charitable. The virtues that adorned her conduct emanated from principles truly christian; and a pure unshaken faith in her Redeemer, was the solace of her afflieted life— her strength and support in the hour of death. At- Camden- street, Islington, Richard Temple, Esq. late Lieut.- Colonel of the 23d Regiment Wreish Fusileers, and one of the oldest Officers in his Majesty"' s service. On the S$ Sth ult. at Rainbow Hill, near Worcester, after a long illness, William Sandford, Esq aged 04. He was formerly Apothecary to the Salop Infirmary, and several years in practice as Surgeon and Apothecary at- Wellington. For twenty- seven years he was subsequently one of the Surgeons to the Worcester Infirmary. In the discharge of his professional duties he was remarkable for prompti- tude of decision and readiness of resource ; for a cheerful and encouraging deportment; and for the. most humane attention to his patients. To his relations and connections lie was kind and generous, to his friends faithful, and in all his dealings candid and sincere. Same day, at. Much Wenlock, aged 80, Mrs. Minshall ; a woman highly respected by all that knew her. Visiting Clergyman this week at the Infirmary, the Rev. Richard Williams :— House- Visitors, Sir John Betton and Mr. Richard Williamson. The Collections at the Methodist Chapel, after Sermons by the Rev. J. Cbettlc, in aid of the Good Samaritan Society, amounted to £ 12. 8s. 8d. Additional Subscriptions. . : ions, which he held in his hand, to the,'. meeting, be was aware that the duty had devolved on one who felt that he was very inadequate to do justice to a question of such importance to the landed interest. He begged to propose a few resolutions, which he hoped would meet the approbation of the meeting. 1 hose resolutions stated tU& i. ljie • agri- cultural interest laboured under unparalleled dis- tress, and that it was expedient to petitiqu Parlia- ment for the relief thereof. ' J he Sheriff, after reading the resolutions, was about taking the sense of the meeting on each of them, when The Hon. Mr. RICE said, as he. understood that other gentlemen had petitions to propose, it would be advisable that they should introduce them. The resolutions being again read, the first of them, stating the agricultural distress, was adopted by the meeting, and Mr. GWYNNE proposed a peti- tion to the Commons, founded upon it. It was seconded by J. G. Ii. G. WILLIAMS, Esq. of LI wy ny worm wood. WALTER RICE, Esq. of Llwynybrain, moved another petition, as an amendment, which, he said, prayed for a repeal of those taxes which pressed so heavily on the agricultural interest, and that per- sonal property should be made- liable to contribute with the lauded interest, towards the support, of the poor, so that many may bear its proportion in the maintenance of the poor, alike useful to every class of the community. He complained that the taxes were not borne in equal proportion by the funded with the agricultural interest. . A man, although possessed of £ 100* 000, may live in private lodgings, and pay little or no taxes. His petition embraced not only these individuals, but also those who go to foreign countries to expend their incomes. They ought to pay towards the expenses of the State, as well as the* resident gentry. A reform in Parlia- ment was necessary, and should a meeting be called for that purpose, he certainly would attend. Mem- bers of Parliament ought to attend to the interests of their constituents. GEORGE THOMAS, Esq. said, he hoped some gentleman of consequence would have produced a petition calculated to meet the question, and sug- gesting the proper remedies for the great and un- paralleled distress ; but, as no one had done s. o, he would exercise his rig- lit as a freeholder by propos- ing a petition, which, in his judgment, went to the root of the evils. In much of the preceding peti- tions he cordially agreed, though there were some things he disapproved; but his g- reat objection to them was, that they did not go far enough. He trusted the. question would be discussed upon its merits, and deprecated all clamour upon so grave a subject: The causes of the distress, lie stated, to be the wars in which the country had been j engaged, during nearly the whole of the late King's reign. Upon the justice and policy of these wars he ^ declined offering any opinion ; —. they might, how, ever, be justly termed unfortunate, inasmuch as they had entailed such an enormous debt upon the country. The other causes were those enumerated in his petition; among othefs, the profligate ex- penditure of the public money, and the injudicious resumption of cash payments; but the gre'at cause was, the defective state of the House of Commons, in which the Minister of the day could always command a majority. In the present Lord Grey's celebrated petition, it was stated, and offered to be proved, that fifteen thousand persons, out of a po- pulation OT seventeen millions, returned a majority of the Members for England and Scotland. It appeared also, by other returns, that 300 Members were returnedjby Peers, and 187 more by Ministers and a few Commoners, leaving- only 171 who were returned by the people.—[ He was here called to order by Major Mansel, who contended that Parlia- mentary Reform was not included in the requisi- tion.]— Mr. Thomas said, that the words of the requisition were general — u to consider of the proper measures for the relief of the distress, & c." — Reform, he considered, to be one of those mea- sures—[ Colonel Gwynne, Captain Rice, and other geiHlemen, expressing a wish that Parliamentary Reform should be discussed at a separate meeting, and promising" to sign a requisition eaid attend, Mr. Thomas agreed to wai ve that - question.] - M r. T. then resumed, by pointing out the remedies, as embodied in the petition ultimately passed. One particular fact., to shew the tremendous increase of the public burdens, he impressed upon the meeting- with great earnestness, viz.— that it appeared, by Parliamentary documents, that the expense of cof- lecting- the taxes, at. the close of his late Majesty's reign, exceeded the. interest of the National Debt at its commencement. After several other observa- tions, he concluded by thanking the meeting for the patience with which he had been heard, and by | proposing his petition, omitting the clause for Par- liamentary Reform. The Hon. Mr. Rice proposed to the Sheriff that the petitions should be put to the meeting in the order in Which they were moved. Mr. Gwynne said, that for the sake of unanimity he would with- draw his petition. The Hon. Mr". Rice suggested that the different gentlemen who moved and seconded the two last petitions should retire to the Council- Room, and embody the material contents of the two petitions in one. On the return of the gentlemen, Mr. Walter Rice brought up the petition as altered, and said, he hoped it would meet the unanimous approbation of the gentlemen present. After a few alterations suggested by different gentlemen, the petition was adopted, w- ith the exception of two dissentients. The Hon^ Mr. Ilice, we understand, did hot vote at all. The Sheriff read a letter from John Jones, Esq. M. P. for the borough, lamenting his inability to attend from severe illness. The meeting was one of the largest and most respectable that has been seen in Carmarthenshire for some time ; and a strong- desire was manifested by the- different gentlemen to insure unanimity of On the morning of Sunday, the 26th ult. died, after a very short attack, at his house in Berkeley, Dr. JENNER.— To record on his tomb that he was the INVENTOR of VACCINE INOCULATION, is enough permanently to designate him to future ages as the greatest contributor to the physical interests of mankind who ever existed in this or any other nation. No antecedent improvement in Medicine can rank in direct utility with this single one. In every quarter of the globe where it has been actively disseminated it has effected an immense saving in the destruction of human life, and of human suffering and deformity. In our E stern and Western Colonies, and all over the Continent of America, the Small Pox has been universally cheeked and diminished. In the European nations of Russia, France, Prussia, Austria, Sweden, and Hollaud, the Small Pox is in some, viz. Prussia and Sweden, absolutely extinct, and in others its occurrence is comparatively unfrequent. The most rapidly extending and epidemic Small Pox has been at once disarmed by the powers of Vaccina- tion. In the United Empire ot Great Britain and Ireland, the bills of mortality, the reports of differ- ent hospitals, dispensaries, and those of individuals, all attest a g- reat diminution of the occurrence of Small Pox. In this kingdom, in consequence of the principles of our Constitution leaving much to personal choice and liberty, the g- overnnient has never interfered decidedly in the extension of Vac- cination— other and more despotic States have done so with advantage. The author of these remarks sincerely hopes that the legislative powers of this nation may sanction the adoption of more energetic though not compulsory, means towards the diffusion of Vaccination. The preceding- remarks have been directed solely to Dr. Jenner's grand and unparalleled discovery of Vaccination ; those who succeed are relative to his general and professional character, and to his other important works. If any man ever existed who possessed an original, and we might almost add an intuitive, claim to the pretensions of a Natural Historian and PHYSIOLOGIST, Dr. Jenner was that claimant.— Nature had given him great genius, vast sagacity, much inclination, and great ardour iu the prosecution of the subjects of Natural History, Physiology, and Pathology;— his re- searches were consistent and connected — at an early age he was destined to the study of one department of the medical profession, SURGERY.— In the commencement of his studies he was associ- ated, and connected, with some late eminent characters, Dr. Parry, of Bath, Dr. Hickes, of Gloucester, and Dr. Ludlow, of Corsham, near Bath ; but: above these, he was honoured with the peculiar friendship and patronage of the late Mr John Hunter, of whose name it is nearly superfluous to mention that it stands highest in the rolls of surgical and philosophic reputation. Mr. Hunter, well aware of the extraordinary talents of Dr. Jenner, THEN A PUPIL, offered to him PATRONAGE, CONNEXION, and EMPLOYMENT in his PROFESSIONAL | and PHYSIOLOGICAL pursuits. Dr. Jenner, how- [ ever, preferred a residence at his native place, Berkeley : here he acquired not merely high local reputation, but, from the public observations and discoveries which he promulgated, great estimation ranks of philosophers, and medical HUNTING Sir Edward Smythe's Fox Hounds meet Wednesday, Feb. 5th ( this day), Cross Hill.

After some less important communi- cations to the Royal Society of London ( of which he was early made a member), he imparted to thein acomplete Natural History of the CUCKOO, ofwhieh bird the laws and habits were previously unknown, and were involved in obscurity;— the singular ingenuity of this paper, and the acute powers of observation which it developed in the observer, enhanced Dr. Jenner's reputation in the philosophic world. Dr. Jenuer also communicated to his youthful friend and colleague, attached to him by congenial feeling and similarity of pursuit, the late highly- gifted Dr. Parry, of Bath, his discovery of the internal diseased structure of the heart, which produces the disease called Angina Pectoris, and . which, was ^ before unknown and conjectural.— Dr. Parry, in a treatise on the subject, not only most honourably recorded Dr. Jenner's original detec tion of the cause of this disease, but confirmed it: accuracy by subsequent and ingenious investiga tion. After a long and arduous enquiry into the disease termed Cow Pox, which is a common com- plaint in cows in Gloucestershire, and some other counties, and which to those who receive it from the cows in milking appears, from long existing tradition, to confer complete security from Small Pox, either natural or inoculated, Dr. Jenner determined to put the fact to the test of experiment, and accordingly inoculated some young persons with matter taken from the disease in the cows, in 1797. These persons afterwards resisted the influ- ence of Small Pox ; to some of the experiments the author of this memoir was a witness, and it is impossible for him to conceal or withhold his evidence of their complete success and of then- accurate institution. From the irrefrag- able proof which these experiments afforded of the power of Cow Pox Inoculation to protect the human being from Small Pox contagion, Dr. Jenner was induced to bring this inestimable fact before the public in 1798.— That this was promulgated with all the simplicity of a Philosopher, and with all the disin- terestedness of the Philanthropist, every candid contemporary and observer will admit, and will unite in admiring* his just pretensions to both characters. The first medical professors in the metropolis allowed that had Dr. Jenner kept his discovery in the disguise of Empirical secresy, he would have realized immense emoluments ; but the pure and liberal feelings which Dr. Jenner pos- sessed spurned and rejected such considerations, and his general remunerations, even including the sums voted by Parliament, were well known to his confidential friends to be moderate in the extreme, When liable to the deductions for labour and expense in correspondence with the four quarters of the world, as well as with ti e whole of this empire ; besides the necessity of continued resi- dence in London, to protect and regulate the prac- tice of Vaccination. CORN- EXCHANGE, FEB. 3. Contrary to expectation, the business yet doing at our Market is very trifling. The holders of Grain, know ing that the consumers are without their ade- quate stock, will not give way in prices; and the latter, expecting- a reduction will eventually take place, hold back from purchasing. The uncertain state of the political world is oue reason of the slackness, and the decision one way must materially affect this market, many speculators in the event of war being inclined to make large purchases of grain, for the purpose of storing it ; and therefore little will be done, in all probability, until the opening of Parliament shall have thrown some light upon the impending events.

REFORM MEETINGS. Oil Tuesday the Reform Meeting to which the High Sheriff of Somersetshire had previously pledged himself, was held at Wells. Mr. Sandford proposed to adopt Ihe resolutions passed at the York Meeting. Dr. Blake seconded the proposition, which was also supported by Dr. Kinglake. Mr. Hunt followed; he commenced by interrogating the High Sheriff as to the course which he designed to adopt, with respect to the authentication of the proceedings of the Meeting by his signature ; but not being able to extort a categorical reply from that Officer, he proceeded to attack both the great piiWies" in the Houses of Parliament with much asperity, animadverted severely upon the conduct of the Magistrates of Somerset, and the late gaoler of llchester; and concluded a speech of some length, diversified by abundant interruption and altercation, by proposing a petition demanding a Reform in the Commons House of Parliament in sufficiently strong lan 2' uage. Mr. Cress well se- conded the motion. Mr. Dickinson and Sir T. Lethbridge spoke, hut rather to exculpate them, selves from the charges alleged against them by Mr'., Hunt, than with any view to the motion exprfs « i) y before the Meeting. Mr. Poole, a Magistrate, also thought it necessary to repel Mr. Hunt's imputations ; and some other persons, also spoke; in the end Mr. Hunt's Petition was carried by a great majority; but the High Sheriff refused to sign it. On Wednesday the Common Council of the City of London adopted a Petition in favour of Reform, proposed by Mr. Alderman W'aithman.

Wortley delivered to the Reformers, amidst great interruptions:— Mr S Wortley said he came before them fully an conscientiously impressed with feelings the very reverse of those which had been advocated by his two friends who had preceded him ; but he had duty to perform, and, placed where he had th honour lo he by the county, he would never hold a opinion which lie would not he ready to defend before the freeholders. The mover of the resolution bad put the question iu as fair and candid a manner as ever he had heard it put on any occasion. ( Hear.) If he ( Mr. Fawkes) were right in his premises, he ( Mr. Wort ley) would admit his conclusion. If it was true that the constitution was different, in the best of times, from what it now was, then he would' say, that there had been some usurpation, and that the meeting was right to call on Parliament to reform itself. But he denied the premises of his honourable friend ; and asserted, that, for the last four hundred years the House of Commons had bee n what it now was, and that the same influence of the Crown which is now compjaiued of, was during- that time in ex- istence with benefit to the country. The Crown aud the Aristocracy stood in the. same relation to the House of £ oininous for two or three centuries back, ; ij « it. it did in the present day, and in that time the country had enjoyed blessings which could not have arisen from any system of misooyernment. What- ever might have, been the case before the reigns of Henry VIII. and Elizabeth, he would assert, ihat, from thenceforward to the present time, the Kino and ti e Aristocracy had a direct influence in the election of members of the. Commons' House. In the celebrated petition of the people it had been stated, that this influence was an usurpation. If so, he should be glad to be informed when it had com- me need, H^ would take Old Sarum ;. and at what period was that borough in any other situation than ; it was ai present ? . lie should be told, perhaps, that the. ense was different when, the town was populous and flourishing, but that it had long since gone to decnv. He would say to this, that that " when" must have been long antecedent to the period he had mentioned : but it was sufficient for his purpose that it had existed as it now exists in the very best days of the British constitution. He could show, how- ever, that many others which were now called rotten boroughs had existed in the same relation to aristo- crat ica I influence dining- our brightest periods, in which they at present. stand. His Hon. Friend ( Mr; Fa. vvkes) had alluded to a speech of Mr. Canning. He ( Mr. Wortley) would refer him to another speech of that Right Honourable Gentleman. It was the speech in answer to that of Lord John Russell, on reform,, In that he Would find it clearly proved, that iji the days of Queen Elizabeth, at the end of tlie sixteenth century, the Earl of Essex appointed the two Members for Staffordshire, and wrote to the J High Sher. ftV directing him to nominate to all the boroughs of the e » noty. He- eon- Id shew many others, j where the same influence, and the same interference { were exercised ; aud which would satisfactorily • prove,- that the same state of things existed in those j days upon which we were all iu the, habit of fixing as the brightest and proudest of our history. He chal- lenged his Hon. Friend ( Mr. Faw kes) to prove that, in any place in the kingdom, the system of repre- sentation was different at the present day, from what it had been four hundred years ago. He would, : therefore, take it for granted, that the constitution of this connlry < vns now exercised as it had been for centuries back.— This being the case; he would now beg to ask the meeting a few ( juestions: — Had we not, under this government of the country, he would not say any particular one, hut had we not enjoyed a great number . of blessings in that time? He would refer them to the speech of Lord J. Russell on reform, iu the last session, in which it was stated, that the brightest period in our annals, that to which they all looked up,. with such admiration, and .' certainly none admired uiore tl an he did the great moderation as well as firmness of those who were principally con- cerned iu producing the events of that day— he meant the revoloiion, and the abdication of James 11. Now he would add, that if we had had a reformed House of Commons, that great event would not have been accomplished ; for it was mainly brought about by the influence of a few, and against the wishes of the great body of the people. He would assert, too, that the present House of Commons was not in opposition to the will of the majority of ihe nation. It had been stated, by his Hon. Friend, ( Mr. Fawkes,) that the immediate cause of the distress of the country was the heavy load of debt ; but he would contend, that the principal portion of that debt was contracted by Parliament in unison with the declared opinions of the majority uf ihe people. The two prin- cipal occasions on which this country had increased her debt were those of the American war, and the war with France, which commenced in 1792. ( A person in the crowd, " It was a war against liberty.") With respect to the first of these, be deprecated the occasion, aud regretted that it had not been avoided. —( Hear, hear, hear!) But the Amercian war, at its commencement, was eminently popular. He could rt- fer them, in proof of the fact, to the speeches of Mr. Burke at an election, which lie lost in conse- quence of his being opposed to that war. Now if that was a popular war, and had incumbered the country with debt, the House of Commons ought not to bear all the blame: it should be, shared by the people. He hoped that the people of England would not again be anxious to plunge into a war;- and he was anxious to impress this, as be thought there was a feeling not unfavourable to our taking a certain part in the. differences which would very likely occur in Europe. Respecting the policy or justice of the doctrines advanced by certain European powers in alliance, he had never hesitated to slate his opinions in bis place iu the House. If they were lch as they were described, no man could abhor them more than he did —( Hear.) As to thewarof 1792, lie appealed to them whether the great majority of the nation were not at that time in favour of war? Mr. Fox bore testimony to this, for he declared that had become unpopular in consequence of his pposition to it. It was also a popular war on its recommencement in 1803, and his Hon. Friend ( Mr. Fawkes) was amongst the foremost who, from those hustings, advised the people to resist the threatened invasion by every means in their power. On all ose occasions, had not the House of Commons acted fairly bv the opinions of the people? And was it not unfair, that they alone should bear the blame of any debts which might have been contracted in the prosecution of wars which, in their commence- ment. and. during the great portion of their progress, Were confessedly in unison with the opinions of the nation ? [ Jut had the House itself done nothing for its constituents ? Were there no institutions which rendered more secure the lives, liberties, and pro- perty of the people? Were we not in possession of personal liberty, as extended as that of any civilized people on earth ? Had we not, an administration of justice pure and unsuspected ? He maintained that, notwithstanding all tile difficulties we had encounter- ed, we were still the greatest nation in Europe. ( A person in the crowd, " Aye, but you have your re- ckoning yet to pay :" laughter.) And lie would ask, did we not owe the proud situation in which we stood to the firmness of our representatives, and the ability by which the councils of the Government were guided ? There were, he said, very many who agreed with him in the opinion he bad conscientiously expressed on the subject of reform, and, before they consented to any change, they had a right to know, besides being informed of the necessity of the reform, what were the nature and character of that to be proposed ? They knew that for the last four hundred vears the House of Commons legislated for the country as it did at present. What now was the change to be proposed? Or were the friends of reform iu the general principle agreed among themselves upon any- one specific measure ? The opponents of reform had a right to have it proved, that a necessity for reform existed; and next, the precise plan of the reform proposed ought to be laid before them. His honour- able friends, who had moved and seconded the re- solutions, had proposed no particular plan; but, though they had not, he knew there were those in the country who had precise, and determinate plans. He did not mean to say, that with the opinions of such his honourable friends near him concurred ; but he knew there were opinions which, if only to be realized by reform, he would oppose, to the last hour of his life, and with the last drop of bis blood. ( Applause and disapprobation) Nay,, more; he should be firmly convinced, that any reform did not lead to such results, before lie ceased to brand it, as far as he could, with public opprobrium. What had they heard as having been already proposed in another place as one of the eSecis of reform ? Why, a national bankruptcy, and a breach of faith with the public creditor.—( Cries of " No, no!") He repeated, that such was anticipated by some reformers, as the result of their plan of reform. He was not left to conjecture what the objects were for which many persons demanded reform ; their resolutions, to which they had obtained the concurrence of large numbers, sufficiently declared them. And the objects which had been so avowed were unworthy of the country, and would reflect disgrace upon it. He must be satisfied, that the reform which those gentlemen had til view was not intended to carry those objects into effect; or, if he was not so satisfied, he must aguin repeat that he would resist them to the last hour of his life, and to the last drop of his blood. He Would say a word regarding the number of placemen iu the House of Commons. It was true, that they now formed a body of 89 in number: but to that he would reply that, in point of fact, the number of placemen had of late years been greatly reduced ; that half a century ago their numbers amounted to 200; and that, therefore, so far at least, the House of Commons now was better than it bad been formerly. He was far from defending every thing as it now stood re- garding the mode of electing members of Parliament. ( Hear, hear.) Some improvements might be made in the mode of election; but let his honourable friends cease to cry down the House of Commons as unworthy, because there were defects in it which he was as ready to cure as they were. He did not mean to say, that- there were no blots, no defects in the lb. use of Commons: by no means; perfection was not to be found in any human institution ; but he did mean to say this, that it was not fitting to cry down the House of Commons as unworthy to carry on the Government further, because it was not gifted with that perfection which was not found in any thing human. As to the influence of the Crown, which his honourable friend said hud increased, it was now positively less than it was fifty years ago. Fifty, nay thirty years ago, the Crown had the same influence from its direct revenues that nny gentleman of landed property had from his estates over his tenants. That source of influence was now entirely abolished. The influence of the press had also tended to diminish considerably the influence of tlie Crown. Was it possible lo suppose that there was no power in so mighty an engine as the press to counteract the ilwSuence of the Crow n ? Had not the publication of the debates in Parliament tended materially to pro- duce the same effect ? He had now endeavoured to state the reasons why be could not agree to the reso- lutions which had that day been proposed to the meeting. He did not hold out any hope that be would support the resolutions; he thought in his conscience that the House of Commons was so con- stituted as to be enabled to perform its share in the Government with advantage to the public and with honour to itself: he thought that the influence of the aristocracy, and that ihe influence of the Crown, bad existed within it for the last four hundred years as it existed at present; and he did not think that it was possible for the three estates of this realm to be practicably independent of each other, however beautiful such a system might appear in theory. In conclusion he stated that his firm opinion was* that, so long as the House of Commons remained the principal organ of the Government, so, long the influence of the Crown and Peers would continue to exist within it. The counties of Middlesex and Surrey are about to meet, in compliance with requisitions presented to the respective Sheriffs- The county of Cam- bridge is also convened for the 14th of February, to consider the distressed state of the natiOn.— The High Sheriff of Surrey, ( C. N. Pallmer, Esq) has signified that he will not sign any petition that may be agreed upon by the meeting. A liberal subscription, for supplying the poor with coals during the inclemency of the season, has been entered into by the principal inhabitants of Bishop's Castle and its vicinity ; and 100 pair of blankets, the gift of Edward Rogers and William Holmes, Esqrs. Members for the Borough, have also been distributed. A paragraph, has appeared in some of the public papers, stating that the operation of the new Turn- pike Act, will put a middling farmer to the imme- diate ex pence of from £ 50 to £ 70 iu the change of his cart wheels and tyre. Such statements are very mischievous, and calculated to increase the distress they affect to deplore. The change in the wheels, & c. will not be required until the year 182( 5, The probability of an approaching war has had a considerable effect on the prices of various com- modities and the rates of ship insurance. Hemp has been sold at £ 41, which is an improvement of 10 per cent.. Tallow will not be sold at the present prices. Coffee was 3a. a cwt. dearer on Thursday, and the advance on sugar in full 23. Rums also arc 2d. per gallon dearer. Saltpetre, has risen full 25 per cent. FRANCE & SPAIN. [ PROM TIIE ENGLISH CHRONICLE.] The question of war or peace between France and Spain appears no longer doubtful. Louis the Eighteenth and his Ministers ( see ithpage) appear to have quite made up llu- tr minds to march a hundred thousand men to Madrid, in order to put down the Revolutionary Government of Spain, and with the ostensible view of reinstating tlie Spanish King in his ancient power, or on a new principle, to be tinder Ihe check of a Cortes composed of two estates, in- stead of one. Ii has, probably, been agreed on by the Holy Alliance, that the Spaniards are to have a mixed Government of King, Lords, and Commons as in England, or of a King, aud ihe Chambers of Peers" and Deputies as in France. The latter form, in all probability; is that chalked out for Spain, and we dare to say, that the French Army Will take a Constitution with it for the acceptance of the Span- iards on their arrival at Madrid, In fact, it appears to us Ihat the same eut will take place in Spain, effected by French troops, in Ihe same man- ner as it was iu Italy by Austrian soldiers. Should llic Spaniards not make a better resistance to the Fi - encll than General Pope and his Neapolitan war- riors did to the Austrian troops, the business will easily aud shortly be determined. A Constitution from, probably, liie parte feuille of Talleyrand, w ill lie given lo tlie Spaniards, and a certain proportion of French troops will, uuiler a Convention signed by Ihe various Potentates composing the Holy Alli- ance and the King of Spain, occupy Madrid, Sara- gossa, Cadiz, and other principal towns, in tiie same manner ihe Austrian troops occupy Naples 011 behalf, and for tlie preservation of llie other King Ferdinand. Whether the French warriors, with the Duke D'An- gonleme at their head, in conjunction with the Regency of Urgel and llie Army of the Faith, will effect all this, either easily or atoll, it is not very easy to form even an opinion. There are many ihiuo- s to he said in favour of and against the success of the French arms. Much has heen said as to the obstinate resistance of the Spaniards iu ihe time of Bonaparte's invasion of Spain; but the circumstances under which he entered Spain are qniie at variance with those under which the French would now enter ihat country. Napoleon, by seizing tlie King and liis son, and iu crowning Ills brother Joseph, made ( lie whole of Spain his enemy,- not only all tllose con- nected by blood with the Royal Family, but tlie persons who were the King's Ministers. The whole of the Aristocracy and the Church, as well as the Democracy, were against him; and this, perhaps, principally in consequence of his treachery iu seiz- ing, under false pretences, 1 lie Royal Family But now the French army profess to enter Spain for llie avowed purpose of securing the Kingly Government of Spain to be controlled by ihe Aristocracy anil De- mocracy as ill France. Tlie probability is", that [ lie French invaders will have along with them tlie w hole of the Aristocracy, or those who have got laud houses, and money to lose, as well as the whole of the Church. The latter, particularly, are sure lo be with I lieio lo a man; for the fiist iliing ihe present Democratic Gover of Spain did, was lo seize hold of and to sell the Church properly ; aud aristocrats in all countries, and at all times, know that Ihe next thing would be to serve tlieni in tlie. same manner 11s regards their lands, houses, goods money, & c ; so that, as we before said, these French invaders will have 011 I heir side Ihese two powerful bodies. Bonaparte had iliein not; ou the contrary they were a more inveterate enemy to him than Ihe middling and lower orders of Spaniards were at the time lie invaded them. Thus far circninstances are materially different, ntid much in favour of the suc- cess of llie present French army, under the Duke D'Angouleoie, as contrasted with thai under Bona parte. lilias been ofien said, that the army under Bonaparte did not meet with success. But if people will only look hack to the history of those limes, they will find that thai army occupied the whole of Spain, with the exception of Cadiz, and a few oiln r tow ns of minor importance, and thai King Joseph Bonaparte very quietly established himselfas King at Madrid, and had a gay Court there; and until ihe Duke of Wellington attacked him and his Generals, Spain was in all respects a conquered country. And we well n- meniber what a work uf time it was, even lo the Duke, bucked with a hi'ge English and Portuguese well- paid aud well appointed army, before lie could diive the Frencl of Spain- we also remember the litile assistance he derived! at that time, from llie Spanish armies under Guerilla chiefs. Whether England will take part iu tliis no. preaching contest il is very difficult 10 guess • we hardly think she will ; or whether she wilfeventually be drawn into the business, is equally difficult lo foresee. Much will depend on llie moderation of the French Government; should they fix Ferdinand again on his throne as an absolute King, in - parison with what he is at present, anil the number of troops that the French King may lliink proper to leave in the occupancy of Madrid, & c There may be an understanding nniong all Ihe Allied Powers, even including England, that the French are to occupy Spain under certain conditions. There is one thing which is very much against the present Spanish Government, it has 110 money 10 pay its troops with, if we may believe Ihe infor- mation contained in private letters from Madrid • and generally speaking unless soldiers be well cloth- ed, and well- paid, they are not over fond of fighting. Indeed, ihe non- payment of the troops and " of Ihe people who filled toe civil departments in Spain, was probably the first cause of [ lie Spanish Revolution. This began the troubles in France, and Ins very likely been tiie forerunner of Revolutions in most countries, aucienl and modern. An Army and a Navy, and Clerks iu the various Government Offices, are excellent friends, so long as thev are well paid and well treated; hot history shows them lo have been very dangerous enemies lo a State wlieu either has been withheld from them, or they have not been treated so well as they thought they deserved. We sincerely wish that England may not be drag- ged into this war. Surely for this last century we have had quite enough of fighting for other countries. It has cost us eight hundred millions of money, and lias entailed on us comparatively political weakness. We bv no means think that a national debt is a national blessing, any more than we believe it to l » e the interest of a man in private life to he io debt, in preference to being out of debt. A man out of ilelit is free to do as lie pleases, in comparison with the one in debt, and so is a nation. Our debt, in till probability, causes us to quietly look 011 while Austria gras;> s and holds Italy— France, her medi- tated attack on Spain, and Russia's probable attack on ourTorkish Ally. And if we are not quiet under all these movements, Prussia may be set on to drive us out of Hanover aud Germany So much for get- ting into debt, and its consequences.

The defendants, five young gentlemen, of this city, were indicted for a conspiracy to raise dead bodies; to defend themselves, and each other, against any attempt to obstruct them in the execution of their design; to rescue any who might be arrested, and for that purpose to go armed with bludgeons, and other offensive weapons. Tl> ey were also indicted for She overt acts ( as distinct offences) : 1st, for disturbing and digging into a grave in Bedmitister churchyard, with intent to disinter the body; 2dly, for assaulting one of the patrole in the execution of his office, and effecting a rescueofone of the conspirators ; 4thly, for a riot and assault; and lastly, for a common assault.— After the - examination of one witness for the prosecution, Mr. Williams, as Counsel for the defendants, interposed,, and admitted the defendants to be guilt y of all the offences charged against them, except the conspiracy; hut that as their being convicted of t'. iat . offence might prevent their being admitted as surgeons, he hoped it would not be pressed.. IVIr. Palmei, then, with the consent of his client, readily waived that part of the charge, out of consideration to the defendants in future life, and they were found guilty of all tiie other offences charged in the indictment.— The Court considering the offence of a serious and novel nature, took time to consider of the punishment until the next Session, with the intention of con. salting the Judges of Assize on. the subject; and in the mean time bound over the defendants with their sureties in £ 100 each, for the appearance of the defendants to receive judgment,— Bristot Journal, WINTER.

Several chvmists have analyzed the lava ofthe last eruption' of Vesuvius, and M. I'epe has disco, vercd m it the following ingredients: sulphate of potash, sulphate of soda, sub- sulphate of alumine, of chalk, aud of magnesia ; hydra- chlorate of pot- ash, that of soda, a good deal of oxide of alumi- nium, calcium, silicium, and magnesium ; much troxid of iron, antimony, and a little gold and silver. The chyuiist, who has contented himself with announcing the existence of these different substances in the ashes of the eruption, promises to investigate ai. d publish their respective propor- tions. Other substances, which the mountain continues to throw out, are very different from the preceding. This eruption appears to favour tin1 hypothesis that the volcanic fire may be produced In the infiltration of the sea water, in the masses c, i' potassium, sodium, & e. which are not yet oxidated; and the production of electrical fluid in Mich great abundance may arise from the same source, since the cfi'ccts of the voltaic pile ( auge) aie obtained by the oxidation of metals.— Literary Gazette. At Dp! Wellington, about mid- day on Saturday last, four suns were observed in the firmament at one time. An uncommon vivid halo, resembling a rainbow, half encircled each of the mock suns, while the natural one was entirely surrounded. The appearance of Ihe whole, was extremely beautiful, aud exceeded in brilliancy and splendour any thing of a similar nature w hich has occurred ill the memory of the oldest shepherds in that quarter. This phenomena, though varied in ap. prarance, was likewise visible here, and in other places of the county.— Ayr Courier, Jan. 23.

What is verv commendable in the conduct of these females, and worth mentioning for tile imitation of others, is, that notwithstanding their extreme age, and consequent poverty, each of then) sacredly reserved, under every vicissitude and privation, a few pounds for the last day, which were found fully sufficient to defray the funeral charges, with- out resorting to parochial aid. Edinburgh Chronicle. DEATH OF DOCTOR BUTTON.— On Monday died, at his house in Bedford- row, CharUs Huttoe, I. I.. 1). F. R. S. iic. in the S6to year of his age. This venerable character will be remembered with gratitude, as long as useful science is duly appre- ciated ; perhaps no name can be mentioned, either ancient or moder n, that has so successfully pro- moted those branches of mathematical knowledge, most conducive to the practical purposes of life, as Doctor Mutton. He has been an eminent author for upwards of ( iO years, and, during 40 of that period, he discharged the arduous duty of Pro. tissor of Mathematics, at the Royal Military Academy, at Woolwich, with the highest honour to himself and advantage to his country. His im- provements in military tactics have greatly pro- moted the success of the British Artillery and Engineers for ihe last half century, and have even been acknowledged and adopted by several of the first Professors oil the Continent. LATE HEREFORDSHIRE MEETING. We have before stated that many of the respectable freeholders of Herefordshire, in order lo express their disapprobation of the Petitions voted at the late Count y Meeting, had called a meeting of those who disapproved of the measure, which was to take place on Ihe 1st instant, finding, however, that, such . meeting might not be legal under a recent Act of Parliament, they have relinquished their intention of assembling. Earl Sinners, the Lord Lieutenant, who presided at the laic County Meeting, has, in reference to the Petitions, ad- dressed the following letter to the nobility, gentry, aud freeholders of the County :— " I have, I trust, in calling you together at the late Oon'nty Meeting, and in the conduct 1 adopted when officially presiding at it, satisfied you, lhat the performance of Public Duty has been my aim. " Determined to continue to lie governed by that motive, it is with inexpressible regret that, on ma- turely considering the Petitions which you have agreed lo submit to the two Houses of Parliament, I cannot comply with your desire that I should si^ n them. Should indeed Parliament decline receiving such Petitions without some official certificate on my part as Chairman— such act I will ultimately do, but further 1 cannot go. " I am ready, as desired, lo present your Petition to the House of Lords, but 1 object to sign either eliiion, because, though I approve of such parts of them as directly and only lend to the Constitutional llelief of Distressed Agriculture, 1 fundamentally revolt front other sentiments expressed by them, especially the - sleeping condemnation of AM. llie Principles aud System of the late and present Reign ; to much of which, under more Administrations than one, I have individually given a conscientious sup port, and by which the Independence of my Country under great and alarming difficulties has been LIL'ESCM'D' " SOWERS." " Kaslnor Castle, Jan. 28,1823." BERKSHIRE.— On Monday a Meeting of the Freeholders of Berkshire was held at Abingdon, to take into consideration Ihe question of Parlia- mentary Reform. Notwithstanding the unfavour- able slate of the weather, the Meeting was re- spectably attended, and no opposition being offered to the Resolutions first proposed, Ihe proceedings passed off without interruption or irregularity.— C. EVSTON, Esq. proposed the Resolutions, which were conceived i: i the most liberal spirit of Radical Reform, and expressed in language. of correspond, ing strength.— Lord FOLK. STO. NE, by whose exer- tions the assembly appears to have been collected, and by whom also the Resolutions were prepared, appeared to second them, His Lordship's speech, which was every way worthy of his independent character and talents, was more particularly direc- ted against Mr. Stuart Wort ley's arguments at York, to which he expressly referred. Our Readers may remember thr. t Mri Wortlcy's reasoning rested upon the proposition that the House of Commons was never less influenced by the Crown or the Aris- tocracy than at present— a proposition which Lord Folkstone combatted by facts drawn from the earlier periods of our Parliamentary History. The Noble Speaker confessed that his opinions upon the ex. tent lo which the right of suffrage ought to be bestowed were probably more liberal than those of . most of his hearers ; and, in conclusion, he anim- adverted upon the w eakness of being deterred from the pursuit of reform by the fears of revolution, when the country had, with safety, passed through so many political revolutions ( as the Scotch and Irish Unions), and njie. ua revolution in property, greater than has ever been witnessed as the effect of a political change in any country, is actually in pro- gress.— Mr. MALLET followed ; he suggested as a substitute for the present form, an Election by ballot, and an annual dismissal of a certain num- ber of members, to he chosen by lot, so that every member of the House of Commons might beheld to a sense of bis dependence upon his constituents by the precarious tenure of his seat— Mr. MONCK ( Member for Reading) proposed to enforce a Re- form of the Parliament, by repeated meetings and iterated Petitions, and by an abstinence from the consumption of all articles affording a revenue to rie Crown.— Mr. F. PALMER, Mr. DUN DAS, and Mr. MARSH also spoke iiifavourof the Resolutions, which in the end were unanimously adopted.— London Puckct. The KING OF FRANCE'S SPEECH, Delivered on the 28th o f January v1823, at the opening of the Sessionof the Chambers. GENTLEMEN,— The continuance of the two last Sessions, and the short recess they have ieft you, would have made me wish to he able to retard the opening of thin ; hut the regular vote of the ex- penses of the State is an advantage of which you have all felt the value, and I am hound, in order to preserve it, to count, on the same devotedness which was necessary to nie for obtaining' it. The internal situation of the kingdom" is ameliora- ted; the course of justice exercised with loyalty by thejuri. es, wisely arid Courageously directed by the magistrates, has pat an end to the plots, and to the attempts at revolt, tiiat encouraged the hope'of im- punity. I have concluded with the Holy See the conven- tions necessary for the Circumscription of the new dioceses, the establishment, of which was authorised by law. All the churches are to be provided with their pastors, and the clergy of France completely organized, shall contribute to call down on us the blessings of Providence. I have provided by Ordinances for whatever eco- nomy, expenses and arrangement in the accounts required. Mv Ministers will submit to the sanction of the law they will furnish you with the state of the receipt and disbursements effected in 1822; and also that of the presumed wauls and resources of 1824. The result of those documents is, that all former ac- counts being' liquidated, even those which the military preparations have made necessary hitherto, we shall enter on the business of 1823 with . forty millions of excess over the credits opened for that year; ami that the Budget of 1824 can present a balance of receipts with expenses, without, requir- ing the employment of that reserve. France owed to Europe the example of prosperity, which people cannot obtain but by a return to re- ligion, to legitimacy, to order, to true liberty ; this salutary example she this days presents. But Divine Justice permits that, after having made other nations long experience. the terrible effects of our discord, we should be ourselves ex- posed to dangers-, which the like calamities among a neighbouring people bring with them. I have tried every thing, in order to, guarantee. the security of my people, and preserve Spain herself from the last misfortunes. The blindness with which i hey have rejected the representation made at ? » 1 a - <| rid, leaves little hope of preserving peace. I have ordered the recall of my Minister. One hundred thousand French, commanded by . a Prjnce of my family— by him whom my heart is delighted to call thy son— are ready to march, invoking ihe God of St. Louis, iii order to secure the throne of Spain to a grandson of Henry IV. to. preserve that line king- dom from ruin, and reconcile it with Europe.

The people, however, were so well Satisfied with the talent, integrity, and patriotism of the men, that yester- day a petition, very numerously signed, was pre- sented to the Emperor in their favour, and they have accordingly been called hack to their stations by the almost unanimous voice of the public. Last night there was actually a general illumination in consequence. As yet we have no favourable ac- counts from Bahia. As soon as the European troops can be got out of that place, and confidence and tranquillity completely restored there, we may I think, expect some little improvement in this market, both in the price of goods and rate uf ; exchange."— Glasgow Chronicle. PREROGATIVE COURT, JANUARY 22. I. K MANN V. BONSALL. In this case, the validity of a. nuncupative will ( a will made verbally) was contested by the next of kin. . The deceased testatrix was Elizabeth Jones, late of. Llanavani in Cardiganshire. The present suit was promoted by Sarah Le Mann, the niece, and one of the neJct of kin of the deceased, against Mary RELIEF or THE DISTRESSED GREEKS.— A « application for relief of a pecuniary nature has been lately addressed to 44 the Society of Friends iu Great Britain and Ireland," on behalf of the dis- tressed Greeks, Refugees from the Isle of Scio, now at Trieste and Ancona. Upon receipt of this very affecting document, a committee was formed Bonsall, spinster, the universal legatee named in the I for the purpose of giving prompt consideration to said testamentary instrument. It was stated iu the j the subject, and to make such enquiries as might evidence adduced iu behalf of the latter, that Eliza- \ lead to the mOst correct information respecting it belli Jones, who was housekeeper to Lord Lisburne, j The following is an extract from the " Case of the and resident at his seat, Crosswood, near Aberyst- distressed Greeks," which has been printed by the vvith, had gone up to London in the month ot August, ; commjttee. v y In the narrative of misery, the Isle of Scio must Private letters from Mexico mention the affairs of that empire as very uncertain, and approaching My » » IIHIU.

These were; however, regarded but as the forerunners of a more general stand against the authority of Iturbide; and the merchants'and inhabitants were securing their pro- perty in expectation of a civil war. One of these letters even ventures so far as to assert, that there is a considerable army assembled under General Vietoire or Victoria, and that even the soldiery, hitherto the props of the throne of Iturbide, were infected with the spirit of defection, occasioned principally by the want of their pay, which the pecuniary distresses of the Emperor had withheld from them.

The same witnesses, with some variations inter se, concurred in stating the extreme fondness which the deceased had for be considered as standing peculiarly prominent. This island, the central point in modern" Greece of civiii, zation and refinement, the seat of reviving literature the favourite abode of the most opulent* families, is become a waste and nearly desolate spot; its com- paratively extensive city', a heap of ruins. Of 110,000 inhabitants, the estimated population of the island, not more appear to have been left upon it than from eight to twelve hundred. Above 40,000 are computed to have been massacred, and 48,000 doomed to slavery, among whom are the wives and daughters of persons who had lived in comfort and Propagation of the Silk Worm. The propagation of the. silk worm, and the manufacture of silk has excited a good deal of interest in this county, since the exhibition of the handsome specimens'of Major Bingham and Mr. Gillespie, at. the late fair iu Goshen. Curiosity, and a desire. to gratify the public, have led me to make some inquiries into the subject. 1 have visited Major Bingham, and the following information is piiucipally'obtained from the different members of his family. Nothing can he done in the manufacture of silk without the leaves of the white mulberry tree. For although the worms will eat other leaves, they never make silk, unless fed on these alone. The trees may be propagated by the seed or by plants from the nursery. They thrive best in a sandy loam. 1 am told that the plants may be procured in abundance from the state of Connecticut, where many families make a considerable business of manufacturing silk. Major Bingham, planted a quantity of seed about fourteen years ago. The trees, 1 should judge, are now twenty- feet high, and the tops are spread something like an apple tree. The business may be commenccd on a small scale when trees are quite young. In the beginning of July, soon after the worms have completed their balls of silk, those intended to furnish the next years'supply of worms, are placed by themselves on a sheet of brown, or other paper, in' the room where they are kept In a few days the worms will crawl out of the balls and assume the form of a miller, but they never flv nor crawl from the paper. They remain here together a short time when the females deposit their eggs aud die. One will deposit at least five hundred eggs, which are about the size of a mustard seed. Tire eggs adhere to the paper, and remain iu that condition until the following spring. They should be kept from the air and frost, as much as possible— say in a warm cellar or between folds of linen. When the leaves begin to shoot out and th*> weather becomes warm in the month of May, the paper with the eggs, is to be brought out, and exposed to the sun and air. A very small insect will soon be discovered in the place of the egg. Soon after they are hatched, they are to be returned in the house, and a few leaves immediately placed within their reach— they continue to grow for about four weeks, when they will be nearly or quite two inches long— during the four weeks they are growing, they shed their skin three or four times and continue to devour an additional quantity of leaves as they increase in size. As, they arrive their full growth, which will be about the middle or latter part of June, they begin to loind their halls of silk, and so rapidly is this labour performed by tii worms, that in about three days from the time the begin to spin or wind, the ball is finished— fibres of silk as spun by the worms are very strong, so that they seldom break in reeling, and yet they areas fine as a person's hni;-. The balls are either of yellowish or blueish while, from an inch to an inr and a half long, the worm being so contracted, to be completely enveloped in the ball. As soon they complete the winding, those balls intended for silk, must be exposed to a warm sun— this kills tli worm contained in them. The process of getting the silk from the ball must'then be attended without delay, while the dead worm is in the ball and before it causes a disagreeable smell. The balls are to be thrown into a kettle or tub of hot water they are then to be stirred round with a small hush until the loose fuz which adheres to the outside of the ball is gathered on the bush. The end of the fibre of « ilk is then to be sought for and reeled off it may be spun at leisure. The insects remain the c » gs from July to May— they hatch, grow, mail the silk, deposit their eggs and die, all in about six weeks.— New York Evening. Post, protection.

The following description of the mines ofPolozi, in Peru, is extracted from a scarce French Wrork, translated in 1597, from a rare and valuable book' written in CastiHan, by Joseph Acosta, which was burnt by a public edict in consequence of the information it contained, and the very accurate, descriptions it detailed of the mines, country, inha- bitants, See. of the western world.

Extract of a letter from a visitor at Glasgow lo his friend at Plymouth :— 44 There is a vast deal of business done in Glasgow and Edinburgh notwith- standing the dull times. 1 think Glasgow is a more stirring place than any part of Britain which I have visited, and the manufactories are all busily employed; and from what I can learn, poor people are in constant employment, and can live as well as when their wages were higher, since all the ne- cessaries of life are equally low in proportion."— Plymouth Chronicle. The following pleasant anecdote is from a little book called " P iramythia," written by an English Artist who had resided at St. Petersburg!! : What would the unceremonious, easy, frank, and artless inhabitants of such places as the rural, cottage- like, rustic vale of Ciapham Common, Bat- tersea- rise, and similar unadorned sylvan scenes do, in the predicament I once found myself, when the ac- complished Princess Galitzen, and the two Countesses Protassoff, her younger sisters, equally amiable and rich in those graces that a good education and the polish of a Court never fail to give, drove up to my door in a splendid equipage, with six horses, two fore riders, two hussars, aud a court laqnais iu full . ivory. Imagine her tripping up si, airs, vvith perfect ease and freedom, to tell me she Could not resist her sisters' repealed wishes to come and take an English family dinner with me. Delighted 1 really was, but not so my poor spouse ; the whole house was in a quandary. I knew but too well our humble bill of fare for the day; and stole out in a few minutes to assist in the awful conference. It was carried nem. con. that fish might be had in half an hour, and a chicken might be broiled in less time; but what to do for something characteristic and English we. did not know, and were in despair. At last I wrote, a note to a neighbour, explaining our deplorable situation ; and never was more enchanted than when I found the servant returned, loaded with a most famous cold round of beef, with, however, strong injunctions that it should be immediately returned after dinner, they having a large party in the evening, when many, many sandwiches would be wanted. I felt proud when we sat down to dinner; it was nicely pickled, looked enchantingly red and white, and was deservedly admired,- Our visitors did justice to our national dish, and all went on velvet. We took our coffee, chatted, drank tea, had a little music ; but judge of my petrified condition when the carriage came, to hear it ordered lo go back, aud return at twelve ; the Princess declaring she must have another slice of that most excellent beef at supper! Yon might have knocked iny wife down with a straw, and my daughter could play no more English tunes. I saw their distress, and judg- ing it best to make a virtue of necessity, whispered the story to the Princess, who entering into the spirit of it, we boldly sent again for the beef, and, as we were only a few doors apart, it furnished no small amusement to see the velocity with which the belter part of the ox travelled backwards and forwards, certainly faster than ever it had done when in the possession of its original owner. ! n short, it was one of the most embarrassing, yet merriest, days I ever passed in my life." LIABILITY TO PARISH DUTIES.— In ihe Court of King's Bench, on Thursday, a motion was made for a new trial, in the case of The King v.

The earthquake com- menced at eleven o'clock at night. A vast quantity of gold and silver has been discovered by the in- habitants, near the ruins of their city, brought into iew by the earthquake. The inhabitants were now ( October 15) lying in sheds. This province was formerly under the. in tendency of Guatamala; it is now independent of itself, not acknowledging the authority of Mexico or Colombia. They have not yet established a national flag.

Ireland is now beginning to feel the effects of the repeal of the Salt Duty in England. While the tax was high on this commodity, a great part of the provision trade still remained in our hands. It employed the capital of our sales- masters, of our merchants— it afforded abundant employment to coopers, and the vast number of persons en- gaged in the preservation of the meat. The offal, in the slaughtering season, supplied the poor of Dublin, Waterford, and Cork, with food at a cheap rate. Now, all this has in a great measure ceased. We are now exporting live cattle in a greater abundance than ever, and the new direction whi< i has been given to this branch of industry, threatens, in a very short time, to deprive us of the trade in bacon. We have read in a Liverpool Paper, that several thousand pigs ( the paragraph says 250,000) have been lately slaughtered in that place. It is in vain, we apprehend, for us to contend with the capital of the English merchant, and it would be vain, as well as improper, to argue against the repeal of the tax. One thing, however, we had a right to expect— namely, that when the greater part of the tax was removed in England, the small duty we paid should have been repealed. This would not, it is true, have left us nearly as well off as we were— but it would, in some measure, have broken our fall. It is now, however, we fear, too late to think of this— for, if our information do not deceive us, it is the intention of the Legis- lafure, in ihe ensuing Session, to repeal the re- maining duties payable in England and Ireland.— Dublin Mercantile Advertiser. - Extract from a letter, RESURRECTION MEN dated Paris, Jan. 9 :— " The resurrection men will doubtless be thrown into great alarm by the following diplomatic informa- tion., which 1 give you from the highest authority. The surgeons and lecturers, and students of London, have opened a correspondence with the British Embassy, in the design to negoeiate with the French Government for the exportation at dead bodies, com- monly called subjects. They appeal to the desire of the French to promote the sciences— to the pecuniary interests of the Government, and plead the enormous expense and hazard of obtaining bodies in London. A subject costs £ 15. 15s — and lately some students stealing, or to speak more technically, procuring some lately themselves in a church- yard, were so peppered in the legs with small shot as to be unable to get home, and unfit for service.. I have seen the propositions in form." Mr. Abernethy, it is said, has addressed a letter to the Secretary of State, on the absolute necessity of Repealing the late Act of Parliament which subjects Resurrection Men ( as they arc called) to severe punishment for violating the. sanctity of the tomb. Under the present restrictions dead bodies are become very scarce in London, and some of the dissecting rooms are absolutely without an adult • subjcct. not render a better service to Spain, than offer the fruits of his researches. The narrow- minded policy of the Government, however, in some measure thwarted the good intentions of this intelligent writer: the disgraceful order was carefully ex- ecuted, and the. French Court, whither in all pro- bability he. had flown for protection — for it is not unlikely, since his book had been deemed dangerous to the Welfare of the State, that he should be banished the kingdom— offered him an asylum through the influence of the translator, who seems to appreciate the value of the work in his dedication to Henry IV. lie there says 44 I have undertaken the translation of a Natural History^ lately written in Spanish, by J. Acosta, a man most assuredly very learned and researching." After some flattering compliments to the King, he adds, What has incited me more to undertake this work has been, that the Spaniards, being jealous and vexed by the publication, have, burnt by a Public Edict ( as \ learnt some time back) all the copies of this history, in order to prevent other nations from knowing the true state of tin; Iiidies.* I considered my duty required me to introduce to my country a- knowledge of things so beautiful and curious— a jewel so inestimable, and a history so elegant— which this author has written from his own inspection, being an eye witness of many of the things therein mentioned. He has related them, too, in such order and brevity, that he may be justly denominated the Herodotus and Pliny of ibis newly- discovered world." But to revert to Ihe description in question. The mountain or hill of Potozi, so justly famed for its extraordinary silver mines, is situated in the province of Charcas, in the kingdom of Peru. These mines were not worked nor even discovered when the Lords of Peru, the Incas, reigned there ; although they had worked the mines of Porco, distant only about six . leagues from Potozi. The cause most likely was, that they were ignorant of their existence ; however, there is a traditional account that an endeavour was made to work the mines, and it was abandoned iu consequence of a voice being heard issuing from the mountain, commanding the Indians to desist, for the mountain was reserved for others; true it is, that no one had knowledge of Potozi nor its riches until twelve years after the Spaniards had entered Peru, when the latter were accidentally dis- covered in the following manner :.— An Indian, named Gualpa, belonging to the country of Chumbibilea, which isa province ofCusco, when hunting one day, the animal he was pursuing mounted a rock; the foot of which was covered with bushes and trees, and as it was very thickly set, he was obliged to seize hold of some branches in order to follow the game; one of these roots came up, and in the hole and upon the root itself he perceived a metal, which lie in- stantly recognized to be excellent, from his previous acquaintance with the metal in the mines of Porco. lie examined the place more narrowly, and carried away some pieces in order to try their quality, and on finding it lo be valuable, he secretly worked at this vein without communicating his discovery unto a single individual: however, another Indian, called Guanca, an inhabitant of the valley of Xaura, a near neighbour of Gualpa, brought some larger pieces of metal to be refined than was usual from the mines of Porco, and the stones in which the metal was depo- sited were of a different colour, and resembled those of the mine he had himself discovered; besides Gnanca appeared in better clothing than lie had heretofore done. These circumstances induced the former to suspect his neighbour had really found out the same mine he had ; he thereupon questioned him very minutely ; and although the other kept the secret exceedingly close, yet by the continued impor- tunities, he was obliged to yield, and take him to the spot whence he had drawn his ore, having then already enjoyed the treasure two months exclusively. Gualpa then related to his confidant that, he had discovered a vein very near this one ( which is now- called the vein of Diego Centeno, and is not less valuable, but only harder to penetrate, and more difficult to work), and it was agreed upon between them, that they should each enjoy his own discovery, and thus divide the richest rock in the world. It happened, however, that Guanca having great difficulty in digging into his mine, which was very hard, and Gualpa not w ishing to allow him to join him in his labour, a dispute arose'between them, and Gnanca being very much irritated, he instantly went to inform his master, who was a- Spaniard, called Vuillaroel, and who resided in Porco. Vuillaroel being desirous of learning whether the representation of his yanaeona ( servant) was true, went himself to Potozi, and, on witnessing the riches of the mine, he had it enregistered. This happened on the 21st April, 1545. Very soon after this, a fine vein of pewter was found near, but it was very difficult to work. On the 30th of August, in the same year, the vein called Mendieta was enregistered : and these four are the principal veins of Potozi. It is said of the first of these ( that denominated the rich vein) that its metal was in front of the rocks, the length of a lance, and that if was at their base, sup- porting them, like a crest, full 300 feet in length, and three feet in depth. This had been torn up, in all probability, by the violence of the deluge, and then exposed to the atmosphere, but yet resisting the impetuosity of the waters. This vein is so rich, the half being silver, and it continues in the same manner to the extent of 50 or ( jO furlongs, and the height of a man in depth, beyond that, it falls away. Thus, by the aid of Divine Providence, were disco- vered the mines of Potozi, shedding upon Spain the good fortune of possessing the greatest riches known, and which had hitherto remained hidden from the world ; it seemed as though it was intended for the happiness of Spain at the time the Emperor Charles V. of glorious memory, ruled over the kingdoms of Spain, and held the sovereignty of the Indies. Shortly after the discovery of Potozi was known in Peru, many Spaniards, and the greater part of the inhabitants of the city of Silver, which is distant eighteen leagues from, Potozi, went thither in order to take mines; even many Indians left their pro- vinces, and especially the Guayzadores from Porco; so that in a very few years this was the finest and best peopled district in the whole country. * The western hemisphere was so called in those davs. sworn that she was, at the time of making this nuncupative statement, of sound mind and capacity, and that such testament was reduced into writing by , certain of the witnesses, within six days after its - enunciation, agreeably to the statute. Dr. JENNER, on behalf of the next of kin, relied on the evidence of four witnesses, including' the surgeon and the clergyman who attended her, to prove the incapacity of' the deceased to make such a testamentary disposition as that attempted to be set up, although a nuncupative one only. These wit- nesses spoke IO the fact of her having been delirious on the 14th, 15th, and 16th of August, and on the morning of the day preceding that on which she died. The clergyman deposed, that being called in to pray with her and administer to her the sacrament, lie found her in such a state of mental imbecility and absence, that she was wholly insensible of bis object, , and incapable of participating in his devotions. The Learned Counsel proceeded to remark on the very •' insufficient case which the legatee had made out, supposing this had been even a written instrument. The Judge ( Sir JOHN NICHOLL), after bearing testimony to the zeal and ability which had been displayed by the counsel for the legatee in this case, said that nuncupative wills were at all times objects of the most jealous and suspicious vigilance in the eye of the law ; and it was requisite in ail such cases that the proof should be most clear and com- plete as to testamentary intention, capacity, and declaration of the deceased. The statute of frauds contemplated those wills with the same strictness of scrutiny. It did appear to the Court that the will now set up possessed none of the qualifications he had mentioned ; and- without giving an opinion as to whether the proof adduced would have been suffi- cient, had this been a written testament, he was clear that, ag the case stood, it by no means came w ithin ihe statute. The Learned Judge then anim- adverted with severity on the improbable character of the evidence adduced on behalf ofthe legatee; but particularly on that part of it which came from the woman who had been with deceased as nurse, throughout her illness, and to the moment of her death, who must, therefore, have been most compet- ent to say whether the deceased was or was not in a state of mental capacity at the time of uttering the will stated to have been by her uttered, and who yet had had the hardihood to swear that she had never seen her delirious, nor heard her talk a wild and incoherent way. Looking to the testi- mony of the clergyman and the surgeon on this subject, the Court felt no hesitation in declaring its conviction that the deposition of the nurse was a false evidence. Under all the circumstances of the case, the Court set aside the nuncupative will that had been alleged ; pronounced the deceased to have died intestate; and decreed letters of administration to the next of kin, of all and singular her goods, chattels, and effects. To mark its opinion,' more- over, of the character which this transaction had assumed, it condemned the. party, though a pauper, to costs. It was aware of The difficulty which might be experienced in, forcing costs against a party so situated ; but when they should come before him on taxation ( the Learned Judge added), he would give the matter his further consideration. [ The property of the deceased is staled to be about FLOOOJ It was so I the bru, al wil1 of their Wesson;, and are groan- under complicated and indescribable miseries. About 20,000 inhabitants in the whole appear to have escaped, but of these a great number have since perished by hunger, fatigue, and distress. It is oil behalf of the wretched survivors of these calamities, that a subscription has been opened. Amongst them are many families of the upper and middle classes of merchants and gentlemen, who are compelled to take up their abode in the roofs of houses, are ready to perish for want of clothing, and ashamed to go abroad ; have no beds whereon to give a little rest to their weary frames, are destitute of necessary daily food, scarcely supplying the urgent wants of'nature with the coarsest bread. Old men, objects of honour and esteem, worn away not only by the weakness of age, but by the want of the'necessaries of life- widow s miserably bereaved, often lamenting bitterly that they have escaped from death, Whieh would have spared them the weight of their present COURT OF CHANCERY, JAN. 28. BEER V . WARD. This case has been long in progress through the Courts of Law, and, as our readers are aware, arose from the following- circumstances :— A gen- tleman named William Cotton had continued in a) state of lunacy from 1763 down to 1819, when he died. The person who took the estates in litig- ation after him yvas disturbed in his possession bv the calamity 1" Such is the affecting language of the sufferers in their appeal to Ihe inhabitants of Great Britain, to whom the mourners in remote regions loqk for succour in their distress— to whom the cry of the oppressed and the destitute is ever uttered in the hour of their calamity. Surely an application of the kind never presented stronger claims to the benevolent assistance of our countrymen ; ami we are glad to find that the call has been promptly attended to. In anticipation of subscriptions, remittance has been already made for the supply of some of their most urgent wants. EXTRAORDINARY CHARACTER. Thomas Drisdell, the miser, who died a few days ago in Cierkenwell Workhouse, was buried in the ground belonging to St James's parish, on Thursday last, in the presence of a vast concourse of persons, who were anxious to see his remains consigned to the earth. The funeral was conducted in a very re- spectable manner, and the corpse was followed by four couple ; and Marv Ann Thompson, a linle girl about 13 years of age, a natural daughter of the deceased, to whom lie has bequeathed the whole of his hoarded wealth, attended as chief mourner.— As the history of this extraordinary man is singularly interesting, we lay it before our readers:— Drisdell was by trade a journeyman scale- maker, and worked for many years with Mr. Wood, in Smithfhid. He was always remarkably industrious, but was disliked by the other workmen and most of his acquaintances for his penuriousness. He was always ready to join them in carousing, but was never found to contribute towards defraying the cost, which he would avoid by saying he could not afford it, and that lie was deeply in debt. By this method he contrived to hoard lli'e whole of his wages; and whatever sustenance. he- partook of WHS obtained from different individuals who were in the habit of associating with him. His disposition became so nrenendlv known, that he was called Hti'onst the trade " Poor Tom," and at oilier times " Tom the Cadger, 11 hut it was never con- jectured thai he had saved any money, and his con- duet was supposed to he nil account ' of distress A few years l ack he was discharged from 5tr. Wood's service, he having' ( jot to he n very slow workman, which was attributed to hisnge ; and from that time, till within a short period of his death, he travelled about town as an itinerant, cleaning and keeping shopkeepers' scales in order, and wherever he ap- plied for a job and did not succeed, lie would implore the charily of the people of Ihe house, and, by stating' himself to he peiii vless, and in the most urgent wan~, he would obtain the broken victuals, anil in this way Ire existed. On Friday, the 18th nit. information was given to Mr. Scott, the churchwarden of St. James's, Clerkenwell, lhat Drisdell was perishing for want of sustenance and medical attendance, al H house in Paradise- court, Turnmill- slreet, and that, next of kin of the predecessor, vv tio claimed on the g'round that the lunatic was not the legitimate son of William Cotton, and that the heirs of Evelyn ; unless immediate assistance was rendered', he would Rowland Cotton, who was the legitimate offspring,, were entitled. It appeared from the numerous' proceedings which had taken place, that the lunatic was the son of William Cotton, Esq. who was the son of Rovrland Cotton, Esq. of an ancient and respectable family in Shropshire. This William Cotton married a person named Rebecca Webster. A register produced showed a marriage to have been solemnized in 1742. The lunatic was proved to have been baptized in 1740. It followed, if this were the first rnarriag- e, that he was illegitimate. It was, however, set up that, this was the second marriage; because the first having- been a secret one, the parents wished to remove doubts which attached to it, by the second. There was a settle- ment made by the father in 1746, in which the four children then living of William Cotton, the father of the lunatic, were treated as legitimate. The verdict in a trial at law had, notwithstanding the last- named circumstance, declared the lunatic to be illegitimate. This verdict had occasioned a motion before his Lordship for a new trial, and under this motion the present proceeding- took place. The LORD CHANCELLOR, after taking- a review of all the circumstances and pleading's, was of opinion that, there must be a new trial. The for- mer verdict had determined the illegitimacy of the lunatic, by finding- the marriage of 1742, and the baptism of the lunatic in 1740. This issue did not g'ive enoug- h of consideration to the motives which might, by possibility, have induced the parents to effect a secret marriage before that or 1742, to which the marriage ol 1742 was only intended to be an affair of public confirmation. Certain it was, that secret marriages were at that time very fre- quent. The settlement of 1746 had an air of for- giveness ( on the part of Mr. Rowland Cotton) for some seemingly existing defect in the circum- stances of the marriages. But there the children were treated as legitimate. He would have it put to the Jury on the new trial, to say, whether there might not have been a marriage previous to that of 1742, and w hether the settlement of 1746 would not afford an inference that those doubts had been cleared up, and all the offences ag- ainst the feelings and opinions of the testator ( Mr. Rowland Cotton) and the family done away. In directing the new- trial, he would also direct the Secretary of Lunatics to produce all the papers and proceedings of every kind in the Master's office, without further order, on the trial. Mr. WETIIERELL asked, if the trial should take place in the Court of Common Pleas. The LORD CHANCELLOR said, No; it had better be tried in the Court of King's Bench ; and in saying that, he was anxious to observe, that he had never known of a trial which was conducted with more ability than had been shown by the Learned Judge who tried the former issue. TITHES.— The Sussex Advertiser says— 44 The award in the long- depending reference between the Rector and the Vicar, and the Parish Officers of Burvvash, in this county, was cou( irmed at the Quarter Sessions of the Peace, holden here on Friday last, and the rate made for the relief of the poor of Ihe parish, on the 16th day of September last, ordered to be amended, by reducing the rale of the great and small tithes, from £ 915. 14s.; Od. to £ 500, and the rale to be altered accordingly. This confirms the long- established practice of rating all properly in a parish at rents which they are worth to let by the year, to indifferent tenants, clear of all parochial taxes." Mr. Wm. Palfrey, who, in 1815, took the degree of second Junior Oplime at Cambridge, as student of Magdalen College, is at present in Wakefield House of Correction, having been committed for three months, by W. L. Fen ton Scott, Esq. for begging at Welherby.— Leeds intelligencer. not survive many hours. Mr. Scott forthwith dis- patched Brown, the beadle, with a chair and two carriers for the dying man, in order that he might be taken care of in the house, and receive the aUend- anCe of the parish doctor. On the beadle entering a two- pair of stairs back- room, a wretched spectacle presented itself. The floor did not appear to have been cleaned for years, and in one corner of the lioVej' was Drisdell stretched on a few old rags, and covered with a piece of a very filthy blanket. This, with ar » old deal table, two bottomless chairs, and a small deal box, made up the entire of the furniture. The, box appeared to he filled with old filthy garments, and that, together with Drisdell, who was speech- less, were removed to the workhouse. Mr. Scott hnmanely ordered every comfort to he administered to him^ and medical aid was promptly rendered, but he only lingered till next day, when he expired. After his dissolution the contents of the deal box were explored by Mr. Scott and other gentlemen belonging to the parish, when, among a heap of filthy rags, they found three silver watches, each wrapped in a piece of rag; on further search they discovered 13 sovereigns, an old stocking half filled with silver, crowns, half- crowns, shillings, and six- pences, and some of them quite h'ack from age ; and a bundle of papers tied round with a piece of string, which on being opened, turned out to contain Navv Five per Cent. Bonds to a very large amount, nod other sureties, together with his will, appointing Mr. Wo - d, his former employer, as sole executor and guardian to his natural daughter, the little girl above mentioned, and leaving her the whole of his property amounting to £ 1,700. When the documents weie found, some doubts arose as to their validity, the deceased having led such a wretched life ; but on inquiry they were found to be genuine. Mr. Scott immediately set about making inquiries for the little giil, amongst those persons who knew her and the. deceased ; and after much trouble, he found her living with a poor woman who obtained a scan'. v existence by selling water- cresses about the streets. She was forthwith taken from her distressed abode and comfortably clad, and is now under the pro- tection of she executor, Mr Wood, the scale maker in Smith field ; and it is his intention to send her to a. boarding- school for instruction. What is most ex- traordinary, the child had never received the least assistance from the deceased whilst living, although she was wandering about the streets an outcast, and without a shoe lo her foot or a rag to cover her.— Drisdell was 56 years of age when lie died, and was a bachelor.
