i-aturDay to Moltbat),o Voote. LONDON Nov. 27. THE Paris papers to Thursday's date have reached Jt- town. France, it appears, has sent counter-orders to the troops which were 'o form a cordon sanitaire on 4e side of Belgium. This is in consequence of re- monstrances addressed to the French Cabinet by the Belgian Ministry, supported, as it is believed, by a strong remonstrance on the part of England. The Siecle asserts the following to have been the cause of the recent assembling of French troops on the nor- thern frontier The King of the Belgians was at his seat of Ardennes, when he was informed of the con- spiracy at Brussels, in which the democratic party was "l'o believed to be engaged. Before entering inlo any further inquiries his Majesty despatched M. Van Praet, his Secretary, to Paris, to desire the French Govern- ment to prepare a military demonstration on the frontier. Such was the orgin of the assemblage of troops at which the Belgian Minister showed so much surprise, to the great astonishment of all who knew how affairs were managed between the Courts of Brussels and the Tuileries." From the amicable terms in which the French Ministerial Journals now speak of the Regency of Espartero, we anticipate an early with- drawal of the French troops now assembling on the Spanish frontier. The Constitutionnel, and the Courrier Francais comment on the report now current that a conference of the great Powers of Europe on the affairs of Spain has been seriously under discussion. The former of these journals regards the report as true, and censures the proposal as an infraction of the non- intervention principle, and an arbitrary attack upon the rights of a free State. The Courrier says, the idea of such a conference is so unjust and unreason- able that it will not, in the absence of proof, believe the report of its having been entertained—The right of search, which the principal European Powers have mutually conceded to ships employed in the sup- pression of the stave-trade, is again denounced in the Paris Globe of Tuesday. That Journal will have it that the French flag is dishonoured by permitting an English officer to overhaul it, even when it covers a slaver.—The French journals announce with an air of triumph the accquittal of the National by a Jury for -an alleged libel upon the Government. Nothing can be more preposterous than the conduct of the Govern- ment in authorising prosocutions of the press in cases where an acquittal is within the limits of a possibility. By so doing it degrades itself, and draws down ridicule upon the Royal authority. The journals of Thursday devote their leading columns to comments upon the trial of M.'Ledru, ;the Deputy, for a libel upon the Government. The libel was contained in a speech made at a meeting of his constituents. The Jury acquitted him of the delivery of the speech, but found him guilty of authorising its publication, for which -very questionable offence the Court sentenced him to three months' imprisonment and a fine of 3,000 francs (120/.), and the publisher of the speech, to two months' imprisonment and a fine of 2,000 francs (80/.) The Liberal press is indignant with the Government for prosecuting a Deputy for faithfully discharging his duty towards his constituents. Their Majesties the King and Queen of the French gave a distinguished reception on Monday to the Marquis and Marchioness of Clanricarde on their return from St. Petersburgh. Madnd journals are to the 20th inst.; the Regent has issued a decree raising the blockade of the Cantabrian coast, and has marched from Sarragossa on Barcelona with an imposing force the latter city remained in a state of siege. The Provincial Deputation, the Muni- cipality, and National Guard of Tarragona, had en- tered a protest against the measures adopted at Bar- celona, which they presented to the Regent. A "decree of the Intendant of the Rents of Barcelona has abolished the decisions of the Junta of Vigilance suppressing different taxes.—The rebel Brigadier Nor- zagaray arrived in Cordova on the 12th inst.; a band of brigands, who made their appearance between Monetro and Villa del Rio, had formed the project of rescuing the prisoner but after remaining some. time on the road, and robbing a respectable merchant of a considerable amount, they retired to the mountains. The Regent was expected in the capital, and a triumphal arch was erecting for his reception in the street of Alcala. Don Rafael Garcia Hidalgo, Chamberlain to Queen Cbris'ina, has been arrested and placed in solitary confinment, The Gazette publishes a decree convoking the Cortes on the 26th of December.—There was no intelligence of importance from the Basque provinces or Catalonia. General Rodil has ordered all the fortresses in the Basques to be dismantled within fifteen days, except that of Pampeluna. The Levant Mail has brought the important intelli- gence that the Porte has officially addressed the Go- vernments of England, France, and Russia, on the sub- ject of the machinations of Greece.—The Constan- tinople letters observe that, notwithstanding the so- lemnity of the Remazan, there reigned for some days great activity at the Porte, and councils were held almost daily under the Presidency of the Grand Vizier. "This movement, so unusual at this period," says our correspondent, "is ascribed to the Stale of affairs in Greece, and to the conduct of its Government in re- fusing to give satisfaction to Turkey for atrocities com- mitted by Greeks upon Ottoman subjects at Chalcia, ■and to settle the question of the Turkish property il- legally seized nine years ago by Greek agents, who have detained it ever since." Towards the latter end of October, the representatives of Great Britain, France, and Russia assembled at the palace of Rifaat Pacha, on the inviradon of that Minister, who laid before them the grievances of the Porte against Greece. Subsequently to that conference, Rifaat Pacha ad- dressed to the three Ambassadors an official note, in which, after recapitulating those grievances, he mani- fested a desire to see the differences pending between the two governments amicably adjusted by the inter- ference of the three courts. The Minister then added, that in case the Greek Government should decline, not- withstanding the advice of the protecting powers, to do justice to the claims of Turkey, the Divan would find itself under the necessity of resorting to reprisals. The reply of the Ambassadors to that note had not been made public. In the meantime, the irritation against Greece was at its height in Constantinople, and the ac- counts received daily from that country were not of a nature to allay that spirit. A small squadron of four frigates was then fitting out with all haste for the coast of Greece.—The advices from Syria, under date the 20th ult., announce that country to have again become the scene of bloodshed. The Druses have assailed the unsuspecting Christian population whilst assembled to deliberate on the affairs of the Mountain, and old men, women, and children have been put to the sword. The Christians then took arms, and civil war raged throughout the country. Not fewer than one hundred villages had been sacked, and Beyrout was crowded with families who had fled from the fury of the com- batants. Colonel Rose, Selim Pacha, and the Emir Beshir had vainly interfered to allay the insurrection.
The Queen has so far recovered from her confine- ment, that her Majesty has resumed her attendance at the dinners at thePalace, which are at present limited to her Majesty, his Royal Highness Prince Albert, and the Duchess of Kent. Orders have been sent to Windsor to have the Castle in readiness for the Court by the 15th of next month, when the Queen is expected to leave Buckingham Palace. The Christening of the Prince of Wales is not expected to take place till after the meeting of Parliament. The ceremony is to be cele- brated in the St George's Hall, which will be prepared with great magnificence for the occasion. His Royal Highness the Duke of Cornwall is first heir-apparent to the Throne who has been born free of the City of London. His illustrious father having been some time since admitted a freeman of the Goldsmith's Company, the young Prince obtains his freedom by patrimony] and, being of full age at his birth, may take up his livery at any time on paying his fees. It is with the greatest pleasure that we announce, that the health of her Majesty the Queen Dowager has considerably improved within the last few days. On Tuesday night she bad some refreshing sleep, was less troubled by congh, and was considerably better in the morning: on Wednesday her Majesty sat up some hours without being fatigued, and was in every respect as well as on the preceding day. The bulletin issued on rriday was—"The Queen Dowager sat up again yesterday for some hours, and her Majesty feels her- self refreshed this morning, from having had a com- fortable night's rest-no further bulletin will be issued ♦K ,onday- This is very satisfactory, as it shews that the recent improvement in her Majesty's health progresses uninterruptedly. Though a state of great weakness has been brought on by the Queen's indis- position and close confinement to her chamber, it is evident that her Majesty is daily gaining strength. The rest which the Queen Dowager has enjoyed for some nights past has contributed to produce this ame- lioration, and there is reasomto hope the improvement may continue, as her Majesty's spirits, which have jey?.r enable her to sustain herself agsinst the debilitating effects of illness. A Supplementary Gazette was published on Wednes- day evening, containing a long list of Military and Naval Promotions by Brevet. The following is a summary of the number of Offic'ers promoted :— THE ARMY. To be Generals -33 Lieutenant-Generals whose Commissions are dated on or before May 27, 1825.

The proceedings taken by Coutts and Co. against Viscount Strangford are said to be not an action at common law, but a bill of discovery in Chancery, in order.to ascertain the degree of knowledge possessed by his Lordship of the origin of the Exchequer bills accepted by that house as security, with the view of instituting legal proceedings, on evidence so obtained from Lord Strangford, against other parties. This is no abandonment, as has been interpreted by some, of the claim against the Government for the spurious bills, but in order to show that all possible legal steps have been taken against those even suspected to have a guilty knowledge of the original fraud, in aid. so far as it may go, of the liability of the Government. Times. On Tuesday the Illustrious (72 guns), Capt. Erskine, with Sir Charles Bagot on board, got under weigh at Falmouth about two o'clock, and proceeded for Ame- rica with a fine breeze. Sir Charles did not land while detained there. The Brighton Gazette affirms that the Royal George yacht has been re-commissioned by Captain Lord Adolphus Fitzclarence, and, it is said, will certainly embark the Queen and Prince Albert, in the early part of next summer, on a trip to Ireland. The massive silver Great Seal of the Exchequer, says the Dublin Evening Post, has been missed since Saturday. The loss was discovered on that day, when it became necessary to seal a commission, and on opening the box supposed to contain it the box was found to be empty. Colonel Cuyler, the oldest Colonel in the service, having been longer in it than the Duke of Wellington, died suddenly in his 73d year on Monday. He was accustomed jocosely to say, that there were three great men horn in one year—the Duke of Wellington, Na- poleon and himself, but that one of 'them had not been so fortunate as the rest. The dreadful loss of life and property which has oc- curred during the heavy gales of the last six weeks upon the south-eastern coast of England, has led to the proposition that the Margate-roads should be formed into a line of floating breakwaters, cotnmcuciii^ attbb Long Nose Point, and extending in a north-westerly and north-easterly directions the distance of one mile aud a half. The expense would not be more than 50,000t., and form a harbour of the first importance. In the Admiralty Court on Wedesday, an action was brought by Lieutenant Walters of the Coast Guard, and a boat's crew of eleven men, for salvage service to the Union, from London to the Mauritius, on the 19th of April last. The vessel with a cargo valued at 10,4511. got on the shore off Dungeness, and the plaintiffs were employed two days in saving her. The owners tendered 1041., but the Court considering that sum insufficient, awarded 1501. A meeting of the delegates from the Metropolitan Anti corn-law Associations was held on I hursday in the Hall of the Central Society, Strand, to receive a report from the confereuce held at Manchester, on the 17th inst, and to determine on the best means to carry the resolutions passed at that meeting into effect. There was a large and influential attendance, and Mr. Prout was chairman'. A report was submitted from the Manchester meeting, which embodied the resolu- tions there carried, and proceedings were adopted to give the recommendations they contained prac- tical effect. On Tuesday afternoon a public meeting took place in the Town Hall, Southwark. After some opposition from the Chartists, Addresses of Congratulation to her Majesty, Prince Albert, and the Duchess of Kent, on the birth of a Prince, were agreed to.-Maynard. a Chartist, proposed an addition, which led to a deal of discussion and opposition, but on a show of hands the addition of the Chartists was declared to be carried by a large majority, and amidst the most deafening cheers, and was to the effect-" That starvation was pervading the length and breadth of the land, which was to be traced to class .legislation and that her Majesty be entreated to instruct her Ministers to bring in such a measure as would ensure to every male subject 21 years of age the right of voting for Members of Parliament." The announcement was received with loud acclamations from the Chartists, who readily assented to the Address being presented to her Majesty by the High Bailiff, the Borough Members, and other Gentlemen. On Tuesday morning an immense fall of the cliff on the Round Down, Dover, covering many acres of the sea, took place, but fortunately there were no lives lost. This slip will save much expense to the Railway Com- pany, as it would have Leen necessary to cut down the [ cliff in order to carry on the works of the line. I Another portion of the embankment beyond New- cross, on the London and Brighton Railway, fell in from the west side on Tuesday morning, covering the rails nearly 30 feet in depth. Several Directors of the Brighton Company, accompanied by Mr Statham the engineer, visited the spot; and immediately afterwards about 100 excavators with two engines and two trains of earth trucks, commenced operations for the removal of the stoppage. Several hundred yards of a high embankment have slipped completely over the tram- way. Nearly the whole of the distance from the spot to No. 4 bridge presents a succession of partial slips or shakes, extending from the base to the summit of the embankment, threatening other slips of at least as formidable a character, The place immediately ad- joins that where the eartb so recently slipped in. The Essex Standard states that Mr. Burder, "who so long figured as the defendant in the Braintree church- rate question, has at last paid the rate. After the re- cent decsision of Dr. Lushington, the Churchwardens waited upon Mr. Burder for the rate, which he refused to pay. The consequence was, he received a citation to appear, and show cause why he refused but on Wednesday morning, to the great surprise of the Churchwardens, Mr. Hodges, of Chelmsford, who is brother-in-law of Burder, waited upon them to pay the rate, as a friend, and of course without his consent; but they refused to take the rate unless the expenses were also paid, which was immediately done. It is now, we understand, the intention of the churchwardens to take the next largest rate-payer; and so on until they meet with another obstinate enough to take the consequences of similar resistance to the law." A disastrous conflagration broke out at an early hour on Tuesday morning at the extensive cotton works of Messrs. Bartholomew, at Glasgow. The whole fire establishment of the city, under the personal super- intendence of the Lord Provost, were speedily on the spot but before they could be brought to bear ef- fectively, the flames had spread rapidly throughout the whole extent of the mill, except the west wing; all idea of arresting the progress of the conflagration was then abandoned, and the energy of the firemen directed to the saving of the west wing, which, by excessive labour and admirable courage on the part of the per- sons engaged, was at last happily accomplished. That portion of the mill which is destroyed contained 25,000 spindles, and furnished employment for five hundred persons.-The loss is estimated at forty thousand pounds.

I Have ranch pleasure in stating to yon that Blair's Gout and Rheumatic Pills have been of the greatest service to me. Between nine and ten months ago I became afflicted witii that most painful disease Sciatica the agonizing pain which I suffered in itiv leys and thighs lor so lonp d period, baffles any description which I can possibly give of my then miserable state. I could seldom obtain either rest or sleep. I had the best medical advice, Including that of two plrysicial.s in London, without obtaining any essential relief. I went to Margate,-and had the best medical advice, trying the warm bath there and at other places, without obtaining any benefit. A short time ago I was recommended to try Blair's Gout and Rheumatic Pills, and was thereby induced 10 purchase a box of this valuable medicine of Messrs. Hammond and Co.,Chemists, of this town, and before I had taken the quantity therein con- tained, I was entirely free fr"m pain, and speedilv recovered my health by taking a few more pills, and happily there ha- been no return of this distressing malady. You are at liberty to publish my case, in the hope thereby that this excelltnt me- dicine may be the means of relieving others. ] IlIn, Sir, yours, respectfully, J. B. MISKIV, Brewer and Malsier, Darlford, Kent. P.S.-If I could possibly speak in stronger term of your in- valuable medicine, I should be most happy, tor it is impossible for language to describe the relief I have experienced. The never-failing effects of BLAIR'S GOUT aud RHEUMATIC PILLS in curing every descriplion ot Gout and Rheumatism, have secured ti) them a celebrity unequalled by any medicine of past or present times.

There are several causes of impotence or inefficiency, among the most prominent may be eciimeralfd solitary habit. (self abase), libertinism, intoxication, lesidetice in Iro. pical climates, &c. The fearful effects arising from this nnfortnnate situation, are noctnrnal infirmities, general (tebility, loss of appetite, in- head-ache, shakily oj the hands, lowness of spirits, nervous Vrrttatoimy, ireijueuwy itiimnaling in mania, waiting of tbe system, anil premature death. What a gloomy object of contemplation is a man in the full vigour of life, and apparently in perfect possession of hit facnllies, enduring the rirearifnl consequences of his own inditteretion, deprived of all consolation, his hopes blignied, tire prospect of his existence rlonded, a blank-a mere blot in the creation. The CORDIAL BALM OF INDICA invigorates the nervous system, removes general and local de- bility, whether arising from self-abuse or any other cause, gives tone 10 tbe stomach, improves the appetite, enriches and purities the blood, re- stores the natural spirits, imparts energy and vigour to the mind, and for tbe cure of sexual weakness is nnrivalled; in diseases peculiar to women its efficacy has been tested by thousands.—This iuyaluable Me- decine is prepared only by Messrs.

The rash, indiscriminate, and unqualified use of mercury- has been productive of infinite misehief, under the notion of its being an antidote for a certain disease, the untutored think they have only to Ia. Inrate their system with mercury, and the business is accomplished fatal error, thousands are either mercuria lized out of existence, or their constitutions so broken, and the functions of nature so impaired, as to render the residue of life miserable; happy is tbe man who, under these afflictions, has a medical adviser with whom he can in confidence com- municate. The Botanical Pills completely root ort every particle or in. sidions poison, purifying in their progress the winkle mass of fluids, aud not only remove the disease, but renovate by their action the different functions of the body, expelling the grosser humours in a manner so mild and imperceptible, as to convince the most sceptical of their nn- equalled powers. they neither contain mercury or any other mineral, and may be taken without the slightest suspicion of discovery, they require no restraint of diet. loss of lime, or hindrance of business, but effect a perfect cure without the least exposure to the patient, at any time when the slightest suspicion exists, it will be well to have recourse to the Bo tanical Pills, for when taken before the disease has made its appearance they act as a certain preventive.

College Green, Bristol, and 20, Southampton-street, K i^b Holborn, London, continue to direct their attention to the permanent cure of diseases of the generative system only; to those aboiu marrying they particularly address themselves; it becomes a sacred duly before enter-ng on that serious engagement to ascertain that the system is per- fectly free from syphilitic virus, and to feel satisfied that not even Ibe slightest inefficiency exists, which, under 'hose ciictrmslances,inevitably leads to impotence to those that are in doubt, a single visit will either lolly satisfy their minds, or effectually avert the possibility of transmit- ling hereditary disease or a debilitated constituMon.

The following are a few of the numerous testimoniels this po. pular work has received, and which the limits of an advertise- ment will onlv allow of being I)Hbl Islied The rai;e for books in all departments of science, literature, and the arts, was, we believe, never so prevalent as at the present lime.—The unavoidable consequence of this is, that we meet a very considerable proportion of indifferent, useless, and even bad books. With the foice of this prejudice on our n.inds, we with no little relnelauce were induced to peruse Messis. Curtis's woik, entitled MANHOOD; nor did it require much perusal hilly to satisfy us that the book was not one of the common stamp. The scientific views taken by the anthors ot the source and origin of many of the most distressing effects of certain depraved habits fully establish their claim to the character of experienced and jnilicions surgeons. To qnote passages from the work in proof of our assertion would be departing from the established rulesjof the daily press. The result, however, of our careful perusal ot the work, has been to impress us with a thorough confidence ill the talent and skill of the authors, and to satisfy us that those entrusted with the care of youth are not a little indebted to them for furnishing them with a means of preventing some of the most frightful maladies to which fleaih is heir.-Old England. Messrs. Curtis's work, entitled MANHOOD, is one of the few books now coming before the public on such a subject which can lay claim io the character of being strictly professional, at the same time that il is fully intelligible to all whs read it. The moral and medical precepts given in it render it invaluable.—Magnet. Ihe perusal of Messrs. Curtis's book, entitled MANHOOD, bas really astonished us by developing a series ot maladies, the never-lsiling coif- sequence of the vicious habit of which it treats. The clear connexion pointed out between the assigned cause and rlie effects is perceptible to every capacity. We strongly recommend the work.—Age. The multitude of books daily coming from the press, some, nty, most of them of a very questionable tendency, made us extremely reluctant to lake up another. Having, however, been induced by the character given to this work by an intelligent Iriend, we ventured to open its pages, and now feel no hesitation in saying that we arise from its perusal in strueled and edilied. The clear exposition of the source of mauy of those diseases, which prove so satal to youth, and which are set down by the every-day observer as the result of common causes, such as exposure to cold, sudden vicissitudes of temperature, hereditary taint, etc., is truly convincing and extremely satisfactory. We say" satisfactoryin as much as Messrs. Curtis have shown that many diseases, such as Pulmo nary Consumption, Epilepsy, etc., hitherto the opprobria of medicine may, when taken in proper lime and submitted to judicious treatment, be brought to as favourable a termination, as any other class ot affections, We do not think we go too far in saying that society is deeply indebled I to the authors for producing so useful, so much wanted, so valuable, and so truly moral a book.- Conservative Journal. We recommend the work, entitled MANHOOD, etc., to the careful perusal of persons of all classes. The moral as well as physical advan tapes sure to result from sncli perusal, will be most readily recognised and felt by those who stand most in need of them.—Statesman. Messrs.

PERRY'S PURIFYING SPECIFIC PlLLS, Price 2s.9d., 4s. Gd., and lis. per Box. are well known throughout Europe and America, to be the most certain and effectual care ever discovered for every stare and symptom of the Venereal Disease, in both sexes, inclndio" Go- norrbaea, Gleets, Secondary Symptoms, Stricture,, Seminal Weak- ness, Deficiency, and all diseases of the Uriaarv Passages with- out loss of time, confinement, r hindrance from bnsirtes* I'lit-y Ua.c cftVotca an,, in rt*-«rt aDd severe cases but when salivation and all other mean* har* failed: and when an early application is made to these Piils for the cure of the above complaint, frequently contracted in a mo- ment of inebriety, the eradication is generally completed in a few days. The rash, indiscriminate, and unqaalified use of Meropry, has been productive of infinite mischief; under tbe notion of its being an antidote for a certain disease, the untutored think ttaev have oul., to saturate their .system with Mercury, and the business is BC. complished. Fatal error Thousands are annually either mer- curialized out of existence, or their constitutions so broken, aiiii e unctions of nature so impaired, as to render the residue of life miserable. The disorder we have in view owes its fatal re- 4 Its either to neglect or ignorance. In the first stage it is 111- ways local, and easy to be extinguished by attending to the direc- tions fully pointed out in the Treatise, without the smallest in. jury totbe consilution bnt when neglected or improperly treated a mere ocal affection will be converted into an incurabie and fatal maladay. What a pity that a >oung man, the hope of bis country and the darling of his parents, should be snatched from all the prospects and enjoyments of life by the consequences of one unguarded moment, and by a disease which is not, iu iis own nature, fatal, and which never proves so if properly treated. It is a melancholy fact that thousands fall victims to this horrid disease, owing to the unskilfulness of illiterate men who bv the use of that deadly poison, meronry, ruin the constitution, causing ulcerations, blotches on the head, face, and bodv, dimness of sight, noise in the ears, deafness, obstinate gleets, nodes on the shin bones, ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose, with nocturnal paills in the head aud limbs, till at length a general debility ot the constitution ensues, and a melancholy death puts a period to their dreadfal sufferings. These Pills are mild and effectual in their operation, without mercury, or mineral, and require no restraint in diet, loss of tirie, or hindrance from business: possessing the power of era- dicating every symptom of the disease in its worst stage, without the least exposure to the patient, they are particularlv recoro- mended to be taken before persons enter into the matrimonial stute, lest the indiscretions of a parent are the source of vexation to mm the remainder of his existence, by afflicting bis innocent but unfortunate offspring with the evil eruptions of a tualiguait tendency and a variety of other complaints that are most assuredly introduced by the s-iine neglect and imprudence. It is only by purifying the vital stream from insidoons disease, that the body can be preserved in health and vigour. Hence the infinite variety of complaints an infected state of the blood in. duces, and hence the new and deceptive forms a tainted habit pot s on, which often deceives the most eminent of the fasuliv, and baffle the best intentions towards a cure. In those DISORDERS wherein SALIVATION has left the patient nncured, weak, and disheartened, and when no other re- medy could restore the unhappy sufferer to that health which he unfortunately lost, the PUr-IHING SPECIFIC PILLS will be found the only effectual and radical remedy and have ever been suc- cessful, though administered in many desperate cases of E,, if, Scurvy, and Leprosy, as well as removing pimples from the face.
