The whole of the old Inclosures of the Manor of Stretton, the proprietors of which have the exclusive Commonage of the said Common, do not admeasure more than 3300 Acres, so that in the event of an inclosure, it is highly probable that the allotment in respect of the Bank House Estate will exceed 100 Acres.

THE grand desideratum of a cheap, easy, and certain remedy to all diseases, having at length been discovered on a simple and natural process, by Mr. Morrison, the Hygeist, the Vegeta- ble Universal Medicines" are presented to the afflicted in any complaint whatever, as their sure reliance of a certain cure. As testimonies of the great benefits received from all parts of the kingdom, in every complaint, and from parties giving their names and residences, one or more new cases will be inserted in this paper weekly. EXTRAORDINARY CURE OF THE SPINE, GENERAL DEBILITY, SWELLED LEGS, &c. To W. C. POOLE, P.H.S. Liverpool-road, Manchester. Sin,—The copy of this case is requested to be forwarded to you for insertion in any of the Manchester Papers you may think proper To Mr. THOMAS HOLLAND, Hygein Agent, at Padiham. SIR,—A feeling of gratitude for an invaluable benefit received, joined to a desire that others who need and choose to receive a similar benefit may become acquainted with what it is, impels me to make my case, which is already familiar to you, known to the public. You know sir, that some years past I was frequently indisposed, and rendered incapable of pursuing my labour and that last summer I was obliged to desist altogether from working, having sunk into a state of almost helpless weakness. My di- gestion seemed to have lost its power, and my head and back were almost constantly racked with pain, so much so, that I can- not explain one-tenth part of my sufferings my legs, also, were generally much swollen. I found myself arrived at the critical period of female life; and I, as well as my friends concluded that there was but very little hopes of my recovery. For a long time I sought medical aid, without deriving any benefit. In this sad and nearly hopeless condition,—so very ill that my friends and relatives considered that a month would put an end to my existence on earth,-when on a sudden I was so fortunate as to receive the glad tidings, through the Rev. H. Clark and Mr. Jj homas Holland, of Padiham, of many wonderful and extraor- dinary cures performed in Manchester and its vicinity, under the direction of Mr. W. C. Poole, Honorary Member of the British College of Health, London, by the use of Morrison's Vegetable Universal Medicines.-The Rev. H. Clark went to Manchester on my behalf, to consult Mr. Poole on my then dangerous case, when, to his surprise, Mr. Poole gave him every encouragement as to immediate relief, and, if persevered in according to his di- rections, he would effect a cure. On the return of the Rev. H. Clark with this joyful news, I took the medicines morning and evening for nearly a month, using in that time eight small boxes so that my restoration to the enjoyment of that greatest blessing of heaven-health-cost only nine shillings! Eight months have passed away since I used the medicines, during which period I am become very stout, my appetite has remained good, my strength has increased, and continued, and I am now as well as ever I was in my life.-That others who are afflicted may hear of, and use, with the same result, this inestimable medicine, is the hearty wish of one who has realised its efficacy, and is now a living witness of its very great worth and that the rich every where may, ere long, keep in their houses, for the purpose of giving to the afflicted poor, Morrison's Vegetable Universal Medi- cine, is the earnest prayer of, sir, yours very truly, ISABELLA WILKINSON. Top of Enfield, near Accrington, June 20th, 1831. Dear Sir,-About the time of my cure, you was called away to the south of England, which alone prevented my case and cure coming to your hands before. With sincere thanks for your kindness, yours, &c. REFORM IN MEDICINE. British College oj Health, New Road, King's-Cross. THE ADHERENTS OF THE HYGEIN THEORY, the friends of humanity, and those too who are friends to themselves, and anxious to preserve their health, cure their diseases, and en- joy life, are now earnestly entreated to unite their efforts, and petition the Legislature, so as to bring about a reform in Medical Knowledge—the most necessary of all science to the welfare and happiness of mankind, and which heretofore has never been un- derstood. The exclusive charters granted so as to bestow on a body of men the monopoly of all their fellow men are highly de- trimental to our best interest, and require correcting. THE BRITISH COLLEGE OF HEALTH has uniformly been acting with this in view, and their endeavours have been crowned with the greatest success. The third edition of Moriso- niana is now on sale, comprising Origin of Life and cause of Diseases explained," with a great variety of cases of cure in all kinds of diseases; throws a new light on Medical Science and the functions of the body and places this new theory and practice beyond a suspicion of doubt. The Hygeian Agents throughout the country are instructed to receive signatures, and transmit them to the College.

LONDON NEWS. ST. PAUL'S IN DANGER,-Not unfounded fears have been entertained for the south portion of the Cathedral, in consequence of an enormous drain which has been dug there by order of the Commissioners of Sewers. The drain is, it seems, no less than thirty-six feet deep. For what purpose such a depth has been chosen, is not stated. The drain has been stopped ad interim, on the representation of the Surveyor of the Cathedral. Upon the case of the Headfort Peerage being called on in the House of Lords, Sir Win. Betham, the Ulster King- at-Arms, appeared at the bar as agent for petitioners. The Lord Chancellor, upon learning who he was, said, What! a Herald acting as an agent? I never heard of such a thing. Your business is to walk in processions, and the House cannot hear you, Sir." Thursday se'nnight, between eleven and twelve o'clock, as two ladies were passing along Cornhill, towards Grace- church-street, one of them on reaching the end of Pope's Head-alley, and nearly before the door of Mr. Savory, sil- versmith, felt a slight tug at her reticule, which caused her to turn round, and she observed a well-dressed fellow walk hurriedly from the spot. Her suspicions became immedi- ately aroused, and on examining the bag, she discovered that it had been cut through by some sharp instrument, and her purse, which contained three sovereigns, abstracted. The thief by this time had mingled with the crowd, and got clear off. Robberies of this description have latterly be- come most frequent in the principal streets of this city. BUBGLARY.-—On the night of the 23d ult., some thieves having obtained an entrance into an uninhabited house in Castle-street, Whitechapel, bored a large hole through a brick wall, and got into the back premises of Mr. M'Cray, an oilman. They proceeded to the counting-house, where they forced open the clerk's desk, and rifled two cash-boxes of upwards of £ 700 in bills and drafts, ten pounds in silver, five in copper, and X85 in bank notes, with which they got clear off. At Marlborough street, on Saturday last, P. Maloney, an Irishman, whose garments were composed of shreds and patches, was brought before the sitting Magistrate, Mr. Conant, by a policeman of the C division, on a charge of vagrancy. Magistrate—" What is your name ?" Patrick Maloney, your Worship, for want of a bether." Magistrate, Pray Sir, what can you say to the charge of your having been detected asking charity in the public streets ?" Ma- loney-" Is it I, your ftonour, to ask charity ? By the Holy Devil that's more than any of the blood or breed of me ever did in all their born days, let alone me that sarved my King and country many's the long day." Magistrate—"You ac- knowledge, then, that you have been a soldier; of course you have a pension;" Maloney—"Is it a pension your Honour manes? Wisha divil a pinny, barring one and nine-pence a day, and little enough, too, for a poor ould sodger." Magistrate-" One and nine-pence a day and yet you have been found begging money of every one who happens to pass by you." Maloney-" Wisha bad look to me if ever I did the likes since my mother borned me, only your honour's Worship sees that I'm a poor dark (blind) man that can't make out my road without houlding out my hand to feel the way, and then your Worship, whin the charitable christian sees the situation I'm in, they some- times slips a few coppers into my hand, and sure it wouldn't be for the likes of me to be afther affinding rich gintle folks, by throwing back to them what they gives to me for the love of God, and that's the whole t\nth your honour, as sure as my name is Patrick Maloney." The Policeman persisted in saying that he had repeatedly seen the prisoner begging in the neighbourhood of Soho-square, and his evidence having been coroborated by thatofseveral other persons, the Magistrate ordered poor Pat to be committed to prison for one month. Upon hearing the decision of the Magistrate, Maloney turned fiercely towards the Policeman, muttering "Wisha bad look tome, Mr Constable, if ever I live to see you again, but I'll give what you don't either eat or drink, tho' I'm blind, thank God FLATS AND SHARPS.—On Friday se'nnight a simple- looking young countryman applied to the magistrates of Lambeth-street police-office for the assistance of their offi- cers, to recover the possession of eight sovereigns and a half, which he lost under the following circumstances:— From the statement of the applicant it appeared, that on the morning before he arrived in town from near Dover, with ten sovereigns, which his father, a small farmer near that place, presented him with to pay for his passage, and take him out to New York. He lost no time in going to the London Docks, where he engaged a passage for five pounds, and paid one in advance. As he was returning from the Docks to purchase some sea stores he met three chaps," and he described them, one of whom, addiessing him, asked if he was not going io America by the ship he had just left? He replied in the affirmative, and they said that they were going there by the same vessel, and were glad to meet a countryman as a companion. After asking sundry questions, about what provisions he intended to take on board with him, &c., they invited him to a public house in the neighbourhood to have something to drink. They then took him into a small dark parlour in a public house, and, after having some gin, one of them advised him to be most careful of his money, as there were a great many sharpers about Lunnun, who would take advantage of his appearance to rob him, and recommended, if he had any cash about him, to roll it up carefully in a paper, and put it into his fob pocket. The simpleton, little thinking their object, drew from his waistcoat pocket eight sove- reigns and a half, and, putting them into a piece of paper, was about consigning them to ins fob, but one of his good- natured new acquaintances ofl^red his services, and in an instant contrived to ring the changes, and pop a very dif- ferent package into the fob of the simple countryman. The sharpers soon found an excuse to get off, and the poor fel- low did not discover the trick until he was going to bed at night, when, opening the parcel to have a peep at the glit- tering gold, he found that the paper contained only six farthings. Robberies of this description have been lately very frequent, and the magistrates gave directions to the officers to apprehend their perpetrators, if possible. FATAL QUARREL BETWEEN Two BROTHERS.—A shock- ing event occurred on Saturday last, about one o'clock, at the house of Mr. Worseldine, carpenter and builder, Nor- wich-court, Castle-street, Holborn. It appears that early in the morning, the wife of Mr. G. Worseldine, the young- est son of Mr. Worseldine, was cleaning the stairs, when some cause of offence was given to her by her brother-in- law, Mr. Wm. Worseldine, which she took no notice of at the time; but when the two brothers came in at one o'clock, the hour of dinner, she related the circumstance to her hus- band. High words ensued between the brothers, and blows quickly followed. George, we are informed, first struck his brother a heavy blow upon the forehead, which was quickly returned by the other; and the former, when in the act of falling, received three or four blows in the stomach, and he fell senseless on the floor. Upon Mr. Dale, surgeon, of Holborn, being sent for, he immediately attempted to bleed the poor man, but life was entirely extinct. William was im- mediately taken into custody, and conveyed to the Compter, to await the result of a coroner's inquest, which is to be held to-day. The deceased (who had not been married more than four months) was about 27 years of age—his brother is 30. The feelings of the survivor (who has been described to us as by far the least passionate of the two brothers) are in a state of the most poignant and grievous excitement. The poor widow is likewise in a state border- ing on frenzy. The inquest was held this morning at the Magpie and Stump, Fetter-lane. It appeared from the testimony of the surgeon that death was occasioned by his excessive passion producing apoplexy. The jury returned a verdict of Died of apoplexy, caused by excessive pas- sion," and the brother, who was in custody, was immedi- ately liberated. FATAL PuGinsM.—On Wednesday se'nnight, an inquest was held at the King's Head, Church-street, Deptford, be- fore Mr. Carttar, on the body of Richard Dodd, aged 27. Dodd was a shoemaker, living in Coleman-street; about a month since, a match was made betwean him and James Cox, also a shoemaker, at the Crispen public-house, in Grub-street, to fight for a stake of two sovereigns, and Monday last, was fixed for the fight to come off. The two men dined together at the house of the deceased, and were quite friendly. After dinner, they, together with a host of their partisans, proceeded to Battersea Fields, where they fought seventeen rounds; but being disturbed by the Po- lice, the seconds proposed they should proceed to the Isle of Dogs to terminate the light. Thither they proceeded, and a ring was formed near the Ferry-house; but before the men set-to, they expressed a wish to draw the stakes and shake hands; but the stake-holder, a man named Jordan, refused to give them up. The men then commenced fight- ing. After about fourteen rounds, both men fell insensible to the ground, and were unable to come to time, and they lay on the grass to all appearance dead. The deceased was carried in a boat to the Grampus hospital-ship, where he was attended to by Dr. Lawson and every thing that was possible was done to restore animation but all to no pur- pose, he expired in about an hour after. The other man, Cox, was conveyed home in a coach, and expired on Wed- nesday night. The inquest was adjourned until Monday, when the coroner and jury again assembled at the King's Head. The jury then returned a verdict of manslaughter against John Jordan, as the stakeholder, Michael Kelly, 11 second to Cox, and against Richard Ilargrave. ATTEMPT TO SET FIRE TO KINGSTON, JAMAICA.—The Cygnet, which arrived on Friday se'nnight from Jamaica, brings an account of some attempts to set fire to the city of Kingston, by placing, at different times, combustibles in a state of ignition under the flooring of several houses belong- ing to respectable persons. Happily these incendiary at- tempts had been defeated, but the excitement and alarm created by them amongst the inhabitants was very great, and the Mayor of Kingston had issued a proclamation offering a reward of Y-1000 to any one who should give such infor- mation as would lead to the detection and conviction of the incendiaries and further, that any slave or slaves who should give such information should be made free. No discoveries appear to have been made up to the time the packet sailed (the 21st of July); and it was remarked that shortly after the proclamation had been posted at Kingston, &cc., scarcely a copy was to be seen. This had led to the conclusion that an extensive conspiracy existed amongst the slave population. In fact, it is evident that the safety of the planters themselve^imperiously demands that immediate and effectual steps be taken to ameliorate the condition of the slaves, with a view to their total emancipation, at no distant period. The experiment tried on the government slaves at Antigua, &c. shew that, under prudent regulation, the slaves may be safely made free labourers. The small pox was raging to an alarming extent at Jamaica, and great mortality-had prevailed in consequence. The Cygnet was eight days under quarantine at Carthagena, the usual time having been shortened by the authorities at that place, in consequence of the representations made by our Consul to the government, shewing the injury which would result to the mercantile interest if the regular quarantine period was enforced against the packet. The Cygnet anchored imme- diately opposite the magazine at Carthagena. On the first day after her being placed under quarantine, Lieut. Good- ing was informed, that if his boat went beyond a particular point she would be fired at. The reply was, "And if you do, I will blow up your magazine, and compel you to regret your temerity The threat, and the determined manner in which the gallant British veteran expressed himself, pro- duced the desired effect. Lieut. Gooding, during the re- mainder of the time his ship performed quarantine, was treated with every consideration by the Carthagenians. THE JEWELS OF THE PRINCESS OF ORANGE.—The New lurk Commercial Advertiser of the 30th of July informs us that a considerable portion of the jewels of which the Prin- cess of Orange was robbed about two years since has been recovered in that city. The following is the statement:- New York, July 30. The Collector of this port being informed on Thursday that there was reason to suppose that smuggled property was concealed in a house in Pearl-street, between Elm and Broadway, got a search warrant from the police-office, and repaired to the place in company with the Marshal of the district and others. Admit- tance being refused, they broke open the door. They found a man in the second story, who made no opposition to the search, which resulted in finding a box, of the size of an ordinary pistol- case, containing an immense number of valuable jewets, which have been identified as constituting a small portion of the whole taken from the Princess, their value being about 100,000 dollars. It was not suspected at the time that they were part of this pro- perty, but on examination by Chevalier Huygens and the Dutch Consul, and a reference to the description contained in the printed advertisement heretofore published, such was ascertained to be the fact. The Consul took out a warrant for the apprehen- sion of the individual in whose possession they were found, and several police-officers proceeded to the house with an interpreter, who, on knocking at the door, was accosted by a man from the second story window and asked his business. He replied that he wished to have a few minutes' conversation, when the other ob- served that he would come down and open the door; instead of which he got out of a door or window in the rear of the house, and made his escape. He was addressed and conversed in the French language. He is said to be an Italian by the name of Carara. Those who wish for a solution of the mystery of the abstraction of the jewels will of course hope for his speedy cap- ture. It is not probable that he can evade pursuit.
COUNTRY NEWS. SWING!—Threatening letters are again appearing. One was picked up at Eastbourne on Sunday morning. The farmers threatened are the two Gorringesand a Mr. Waters the three principal agriculturists in the place.— Brighton Guardian. INCENDIARISM.—On Sunday morning, the 21st ult., a fire broke out in a barn on the premises of Mr. Thomas Breeds, in the parish of Guestling, Hastings. The Hastings fire-engine was instantly sent for, and every exertion used to extinguish the flames; but the fire was not got under till the barn, containing about five loads of wheatsheaves, stable, and waggon-lodge, with three waggons, were entirely reduced to ashes. The damage is estimated at £ 500. A man of the name of Bufford was taken into custody on Sunday evening, on suspicion of having some knowledge of the fire.—Brighton Gazette. SHOCKING ACCrDENT.-On Thursday, last week, a man named Hill, in a state of intoxication, fell into the excava- tion at Balham Hill. A borer being at the time fixed in the ground, with seven feet of it standing out, the poor fel- low tumbled sideways upon the point, and it passed through his body just above the hips, and he fell to the bottom, literally spitted. A workmate immediately took him off, but with much difficulty; and while he was doing this, so stupidly drunk was the sufferer, that he said, Never mind, Bill, it's only run through my clothes." He lingered in a state of insensibility two days, when he died. FATAL SPORTING.—Mr. R. Entwistle, junior, of Rush- ulme, while on a shooting excursion with some friends, at Bleasdale, on the 16th ult. was shot through the head by the accidental discharge of one of the barrels of his gun, whilst engaged in loading the other. He survived only three hours. MYSTERIOUS DEATHS.—On Thursday sennight, Andrew Roy, a cabinet maker and one of the Yorkshire Hussar band, and Elizabeth Meadley, a dress-maker, to whom he had long paid his addresses, after spending the evening at a dance, returned to her home; but her parents fmding Roy affected by liquor, requested him to leave the house. He did so but persuaded the young woman to accompany him to the door. There they remained some time, and were seen to quit the spot suddenly, he saying I'll do it," and she dissuading him from some desperate resolution. This was the last time they were seen alive,-After a per- severing search of some days, both their bodies were found in the River Ure, at a considerable distance below the place where they are supposed to have entered the water. DANG ER OF BREAKING BOUNDS.—A large boa constrictor made its escape one day last week from the menagerie now exhibiting near Batliwick bridge. It was found drowned in the Avon two days after.-Bath Chronicle. MORE STEAM ACCIDENTS.—The Chieftain steamer got ashore, in a fog, on one of the Copeland Isles, on Tuesday evening. She sailed from Belfast for Liverpool on Tuesday, at four o'clock p.m. She had a considerable cargo of goods; and there were probably from thirty to forty passengers on board. The passengers and some luggage were landed on the Lighthouse Isle; and, through the kindness and hospi- tality of the keeper and his wife, spent the night very com- fortably. Next morning they found a passage across the Sound into Donaghadee, and thence returned to Belfast.- Dublin Evening Packet. [The Chieftain has been since got off without damage.] DROWNING.—Mr. William Nicholson, solicitor, of Dow- gate Hill, London, who had resided in Rarnsgate a few days with his family, went on Monday se'nnight to bathe, and unfortunately got out out of his depth. He called for help but the sea being very rough, some time elapsed be- fore any assistance could be tendered. William Christian plunged into the waves, and caught hold of him, hoping to be able to keep him above water until the arrival of the life- boat, which had put off as soon as alarm was given but being then in a depth of twelve feet, he was reluctantly compelled to let him go. The unfortunate gentleman sank for the last time, and was not found until more than an hour had elapsed, when the dead body was washed ashore. The following shocking occurrence happened on Tuesday evening in the Walmer-road :—While several boys were amusing themselves with running, they were annoyed by a boy named Brown, whose interruption at length provoked one of the runners to strike him, when Brown instantly drew his knife and inflicted a severe wound in the side of his antagonist; the blood gushed in a stream from the wound, the knife having penetrated to a considerable depth. Surgical assistance was promptly procured but we regret to state that slight hopes are entertained for the life of the victim. Brown, who is about twelve years old has ab- sconded.—Kent Herald. A Mr. Chadwick, who intends offering himself as a can- didate to represent the West Riding of Yorkshire so soon as as the reform bill passes, sums up his pretensions and qualifications thus I am no man of family; I am no man of business—I have never been used to it; but I can shout, laugh, hawk and spit, and cough, stamp, hiss, hoot, and huzza; and what more can be wanted for an M.P.? I do not doubt but my stamping, shouting, &,c., would have as much effect in the House of Commons as most speeches generally have." The Bishop of Bath and Wells has announced to his numerous labourers, that he will henceforth give 12s per week to every sober and industrious labourer, who is able and willing to do a good day's work.— Worcester Journal. Mr. J. Favell, dealer in British and foreign lace, at Spald- ing, and also a local preacher among the Wesleyan Me- thodists, poisoned himself on Sunday night week, after having preached twice that day. Coroner's Verdict, Insa- nity. HYDROPHOBIA.—About two months ago, a dog belonging to Mrs. Monkman, of the Old Sand Hill, in Coiliergate, York, suddenly showed symptoms of hydrophobia, and bit some of the servants about the premises. A young woman was most severely lacerated on the arm, and though the Wound was apparently perfectly healed in about a fortnight afterwards, the result has been fatal. On Sunday week she married a young man named Crosby, a sailor, and on Friday last the horrid disorder which had been rankling in her blood manifested itself in its deadliest form. The young woman continued in great agony till Saturday evening, when death terminated the afflicting scene. It has been conjectured that dancing and other festivities connected with the wedding feast may have accelerated the develop- ment of the fatal disorder. Her remains were interred on Monday evening, in the church-yard of St. Mary Bishop- hill the Elder, and an immense concourse of spectators at- tended the funeral obsequies of this unfortunate bride, who has in one week from the day of her marriage been thus awfully consigned to her tomb. At the late Assizes in Chester an action was brought for breach of contract, which occupied the Court from twelve o'clock at noon until five the next morning. The jury re- turned a verdict for the plaintiff, without any damages Mr. Baron Bolland informed them that the action was brought to recover damages, and if they found for the plain- tiff they must give damages. One of the jury, a second Falstaff as to the outward man, and who had no hesitation in confessing that he had been locked in the arms of Mor- pheus for some hours during the investigation, immediately jumped up and exclaimed, "My Lord, that's none o'my verdict; these eleven have agreed to it among themselves." Of course his Lordship immediately ordered the "twelve'' to retire until they should have agreed, and a hailiff was accordingly sworn to keep them without meat, drink, &c. After some time they returned into Court, but, to the con- sternation of all the parties concerned, it was discovered that one of the wiseacres had withdrawn himself from the surveillance of the bailiff, and consequently all the proceed- ings must be commenced de novo! On a search being in- stituted for the absentee, he was found comfortably en- sconced behind a smoaking beefsteak and a foaming tank- ard of double brown stout, for which he was indebted to the kind consideration of mine host" of the Black Bear. "Th'Judge," said he, "twodus we meyt goo whom, an' let him know what we thowt on't another dee, an' so I thowt I'd mak th' best o' my wee to my supper 1" He was fined X30 for his ignorance. RIGHT OF ADMISSION TO A LOVE FEAST.—The magis- trates of Birmingham have lately made a decision which affects the usual rules observed in the Love Feasts of the Methodists. On the previous Sunday afternoon a man named Ingram, who had either been expelled, or who had withdrawn from the society, presented himself at the door, to attend the Love Feast, but had no admission ticket." On his persisting that he had a right to enter, he was forced out, and complained before the magistrates of the assault. They decided that, "as it was a registered place of public worship, the defendants had no right to prevent any person whatever from attending any service;" and the defendants were accordingly fined for the assault. VENTRILOQUISM.—Not long ago, Carmichael, the ventri- loquist, was performing to crowded houses in Haddlington, and one day he stopped a woman in the streets, who had an infant in her arms, patted and praised its bonnie baby cheek, and slyly inquired whether it could speak. Speak, my certe did ye ever hear a bairn speak at five months?" This was too good an opportunity to be lost; and impiedi- ately a voice small, shrill, and sweet-aye, as sweet as the single-stringed notes of Paganini, or Tommy Puck's, when his throat with fiddle-strings was lined—exclaimed, "Ah, mother, what a lee! ye ken I can speak well eneugh, if y& wad let me, and ye ken hoo ye feared me when I tell'd father about the glass o' whisky." The woman looked dumb-founded, as she well might, and, after muttering, "Preserve us! Preserve us! the man's a warlock, and has witched the wean," crossed the street, and disappeared as fast as her trembling limbs could carry her.
