THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON. (From the Standard of Wednesday Evening.) 0 We have the highest gratification in being able to present, from good AUTHORITY, the fol- lowing account of the real nature of the Duke of Wellington's late indisposition. Our readers will see that it removes ail grounds for appre- hension, that a man so justly endeared to the nation, and so important to its highest interests, shall be lost to it, or even disabled from contri- buting his services as constantly and vigorously as he has been accustomed to render them:- Dover, Nov. 19, 7 p m. "Doubtless by this, all sorts of ill-founded rumours have reached the metropolis, relative to the DUKK OR WELLINGTON'S sudden indispo- sition. You will hear of the 4 AI.AKMING ILL- NESS OF THE DFKT.. ATTACK OF APOPLEXY, &c. &c. Believe in nothing of the sort. The facts are simply these. The day before yester- day the Duke took it into his head to starve a slight cold,'and tasted nothing of food the entire of Sunday. Pursuing the same system on Mon day, and finding himself better, he mounted his horse to follow the hounds, and on returning to Waimer Castle after the day's sport, his Grace was so exhausted, that he actually fainted from inanition, from want of food. By medical means he soon rallied- He bathed his feet, and retired to rest; and this morning desired to rise at his usual hour of six; but his medical adviser recommended his Grace to remain longer in bed. He did so, and fell into a sound sleep, and with the blessing of God, his Grace will be, by to-morrow, restored to his usual health. Rumours here had the Duke in IMMINLNT DANGER.' Again, I repeat, believe in nothing of the sort-for in danger he never was." The following paragraphs appeared in the morning papers and produced a most gloomy effect in the metropolis-for where there is much love there will always be much fear. We are happy in the opportunity of removing the public alarm (From the Times.) Our Dover correspondent sent us last night the following melancholy intelligence. In com. mon with every right- minded person in the kingdom, we most cordially hope and pray, that if the information be correct, the attack may be less serious than our informant seems to apprehend :— Dover, Nov. 19. Last evening, about half-past six o'clock, the Duke of Wellington was taken speechless. Dr. M'Arthur was immediately sent for, with Mr Ilalke, the surgeon, who were in attendance as soon as possible, and by reports the Duke remained speechless till six o'clock in the morn. ing but it is said he is something better to- day. His physicians were sent for from London and arrived this afternoon at three o'clock."
