EXCHEQUER OF PLEAs. SITTINGS AFTER 1IILAllY TERJf, 1813. Humphreys and others, against J. IJedwiqi. The Plaintiffs are the owners of a Brig caller^, the Carnarvon Castle, of Carnarvon, and ;t j j re- side in the-town of Carnarvon, except fille of them of the name of Km KM AM, who is a tesi- 1 dent of Liverpool. The Defendant is a Ship- broker, now residing in. Loudon, hut win* (i;is taken a farm at Tremadoc iu North Waies, It appeared from (he opening of the Plai.irti.Tx (a?e by Mr. AbViotC, thai iu the month of July la'IO, the vessel being then in the port of London, .U1(J the master Jeffrey Jones, (who is also a owner) being in want of a freight, applied to the Defendant; as Ship-broker to procure one for him, which (he Defendant accordingly did ;,t the Transport Board, in the names and on the behalf of the owners of the vessel, that she shoiq^ carry for Government a. quantity of bricks fronl Grays, in Essex, to Spike Island near Cork, the rateof fifty-eight shillings per thousand. The Defendant having represented to the Captai;) that he could only procure for him forty shillings per thousand freight. Rather than the vessel should be unemployed the master consented to carry the bricks, and accordingly toiile on board a full cargo at Grays, which was conveyed to Spike Island, and a certificate given to Captain Jones of their safe delivery, which be in;; uans- ijiitted by him to Defendant, he obtained a Transport Bill on the Treasurer of the Navyi Pay Office, for the whole of the freight amount- ing to 2607. Ss. lid at the rate of fifty-' eight shilling's per thousand) payable nineteen days after date, with interest thereon, which amounted to 21. ISs. 7d. making in the whole the sum of 263Z. 17s. 6d. which became due 011 the 2nd of December, 1810, and which bill expressed to be payable to the Defendant, or order on be- half of tlte oieners of the Carnarvon Castle. The Captain on his arrival and stay at Cork, being- in want of money to pay the ship's way, drew a bill upon the Defendant for 6U. 6s. Sd, in part payment of freight, which was honored and paid. Humphreys one of the Plaintiffs and the Ship's Husband, also drew upon the defendant for 100Z at two months after date, agree able to the desire of Cap'a'" J°r'es s letter to him from Cork, on account of the freight in question, but which the Defendant refused to accept, declaring his deter. mination not to pay Jones, Humphreys, and Co. (the principal owners) a single farthing, until the freight became due and receivable by, and was actually »'aid to him, which might never be the case tho' he had at that very time a Government Bill for the full amount of the freight in bij posses- r sion, bearing interest as is customary. On the 5th October. 1810, Cap/ain JeflVey Jones drew upon the Defendant for lOOt. which he also re- fused to accept. And on ti le i'Z"Ill ()I' Oct. ille De. fendant furnished Gapt. Jones with ail account respecting the freight of !•■ vessel, a ro-n of- which is as follows, viz. Captain Jeffrey Jones and owners, (Brig Carnarvon Castle) freight from Grays W Spike Island near Cork. 89,8.10 Bricks, at 40s. per thousand, £ '179 12 5 • ,190 Bricks (short de-? ,0 tivered) ai. 55s. £ Postage, 0 3 6 Commission on Ereight, 8 19 8 Bill drawn in Cork, 61 G 8 IS 14 10 Balance due Capf. Jones and owaers — Dec. 2, 1810, when iheEreighr 105 17 7 receivable by n?e, J. B. — The above baJancc "wi being paid by the Defend, ant, the Plaintiff commenced an action 111 ihe Court ()f Ku,g's t0 recover the balance to wmch the Defendant plea ied a Sham i'ua, of a j judgment, recorded against him by the Piaintisfs, but having discovered (what the" Pontiffs were | wholly ignorant of) that Molyueux one of ¡¡¡e owrier-i who had resided at Liverpool was dead, the Defendant then withdrew his said Plea, and pleaded the general issue and upon Hie (rial the death of Molyneux being proved by him, the PlaiiUiffis were non-suited, but thc Court though; proper to express its displeasure at such a defence. the IJla>ntitFs having by application at the Transport Board, and ihe Navj Pa> Office, found out the trick, that had been played upon the CiJpta;n,a¡¡ wel; ¿¡:, with from thirt) to thirty- five oilier masters of vessels in the like manner,- (the Defendant, having received full iftty-eight- shillings per thousand for the freight beside* the interest upon 'he Bill) commenced a fresh actiofi in this Court, to recover their full freight for the bricks, consenting to allow the Defendant a Commission at live percent, and other deduc- tions, to which action ihe Defendant very pru-' dently pleaded the general issue only. TJnott this cause coming on for trial at the Sidings after" last Trinity Term, It appeared (hat the Defend- ant had heen ag-ain exercisin his ingelluil), and had actually, for the purpose of again defeatin» the Plaintiffs, without their knowledge privately paid to the PlaintiUlviRKH AM,(who knew nothing of the concerns of ihe ship, being a resident in Liverpool, and having only one sixteenth share) the supposed balance of 105/. 17s. Id. and lJh- iaiiiett fi-oiii liiiii a receipt in full for the amount of the freight. This however did not avail de- fendant, for the chief Baron very juslly directed a verllict for tite Plaintiffs, for the full amount to which they were entitled. Defendanttiot Jnllcb satisfied with this decision, afterwards applied for a new trial, upon the ground that 1 be ship's registery (alone) of the vessel was not evidence of ownership, and that he was taken by surprise at the last trial, as he had witnesses to make out his case which he had neglected to call. The Plaintiffs wishing to give the Defendant every fair chance did not oppose this motion, which the Court accordingly granted, upon the Defend- ant first paying the Plaintiffs all the costs of the former trial and their costs of the rule, and m.ai uP0n,the new ,r'al the owneiship of the taintiffs to the vessel." At these sittings the cause came on again for a new trial, when the Defendant wanted to assume a new cnaracfer namely, that he was not a Ship-broker but a principal, and that be was entitled to put into his pocket eighteen shillings per thousand, for the freight of the bricks, and deducting for short delivery of bricks St. SJ. Od. which was not de- ducted at the Transport Board, charging com- mission oil the same, and yet being inonet, he says, he never received, taking the whole of the 1 ranspo 11 B1 to his own purse, charging Com- I mission 01 (lv« per Cent. Postit,e, &e. a,li taken or deducted out (If ihe forty shillings per thousand tieiglil, and even then, denying to pay the Pli im- tills (he balance, uniitt (he Transport liill became due, and receivable hy, and actually paid him, and not till then, without accounting for any part of the interest allowed on said bill to the Plain- lifts. The Court and Jury saw through this third attempt so clearly, that the Plaintiffs ohtallled a second verdict for the whole of iheir demand, to the great satisfaction of a crowded Court. AGHICULTURAL REPORT l'OR FEnRUARV. The heavy rains, which fell about the middle 01 the month, have greatly impeded the early sowing, by inundating the retentive soils, Inch will require a dry month before they will be in a proper slate for the plough. From the same cause, tender lands, under cattle crops, are much poached by the feet of animals, and will require much labour to break them. The young wheats have put on a most proline appcarance in lillow, having tonnci a strong p/anf of a sea- sonable colour. In some parts the wire-worm land grub appear. From the mildness of (he tiic itifilifis, all the brassica genus have run much top and, unless cheeked, pro- mise to be-soon exhausted. To counteract the early consumption, the soiling ciops ate in a loi waid and In v.uManc state. The increased cul- tivation 01 the .wedish tmrtiip, has obviated the °f a hackward Spr ng, and ranks first iu i Spiing sewing commenc- ed in warm soils, in the southern district, which work kindly on the fresh flag or furrow. Much dung and soil carting remain unifnished.

LONDON, MARCH 8. AT length we have another Gotteiiburgh Mail, (the 5th that was due.) It has brought us a Journal of the proceedings of the Russian Army, from the 20lh to the 30th January, ten days later than the last arrival on the 27th tilt. But the most important fact brought by the Mail is thcilltenigence of Denmark having withdrawn all letters of marque issued against us, a proof of the departing, if not the de- parted influence of France over her councils. The Emperor Alexander is slated to have in his interview with the Crown Prince of Swe- den offered to guarantee Norway to Sweden- an fyffer which so alarmed the Danish Govern- ment, that it is said to have expressed a readi- ness to break with France if this guarantee were withdrawn. From the Russian armies under Platow, Tchichagoff, and Aliloradovitz, the Mail brings the following iiiforinatioti-Platow had, by b the last accounts, (Jan. 24) his head-quarters near Danlzic, having drawn a cordon of light troops round that city, and sent on his forag- el ing parties to the Oder. Tchichagoff's army, which was marching on Liebau, was ordered to approach Thorn, to observe that fortress, and cover the ma- gazines at Bromberg. General Woronzow, who took Bromberg, found large magazines there. On the 26th of January the Emperor's head- quarters were at Willenberg, on the other side of the Vistula. Miloradovitz, our readers will recollect, moved from Grodno in a line parallel to that of the Emperor on his left. It is this army that is destined to act against the y 11 Austrians, taking the direction of Warsaw. The Austrians retire at. all points as the Russi- ans advance. On the 10th January they sur- rendered N ovogrodek and another town with- out resistance. They then retired from Ostro lenka on Pnltusk and on the 26th January, Gen. Miloradowilch entered Prastniz, where he was joyfully received. Warsaw is said to be equally desirous of the approach of the Rus- sians. Goltenburgh, February 20.—An Austrian courier from Vienna in 15 days is just arrived aud proceeds to England by the first packet. By a Gentleman who arrived this morning from Copenhagen, weare informed that many letters had been received in that city previous to his departure from Germanv, stating that Warsaw had capitulated to the Russians. The Danish Government have called in all letters of marque for privateering, and it is said the brigs arc to be dismasted in Norway.* The few French privateers in Danish ports are to proceed out, but not to return again, nor bring in any prizes to Danish ports. A Lisbon Mail arrived this morning with accounts lo the 23d ult. They bring no news of importance. It is still believed that the French are withdrawing their best troops from Spain.

The Medical Men, in London, and we be- lieve, throughout the country, are apptying to Parliament for leave to bring in a Bill for regulating the practice of Apothecaries, Sur- geon*, &e. On Friday last, was launched from the yard of Mr. Samuel Samuel, Ship-builder, in Car- narvon, a most beautiful Cutter, called the Wellington, of about forty tons burthen.— She went off the slocks in a very superior sty Ie, amidst the acclamations of an immense con- course of spectators, who had assembled to witness the launch of as fine a moulded v-ssel, as we believe, ever sailed from this or any other port. To prevent Milk and Butter from tasting of Turnips. -,ro one ounce of saltpetre pour one pint of boiling water one large tea-spoonful of this mixture put to every gallon of milk while yet warm from the cow this purifies the milk, and of course the butter. On the 25th ult. was slaughtered by Mr. William Hassall, of Bridgenorth, Salop, a beautiful heifer, four years old, fatted by Mr. Bamfield, of Ewduess, at very little expence. It weighed alive on the machine, 16241bs.; when dead, by the scale, 120311im. sinking the offal. The proportion of bone was astonish- ingly small. The sire of this animal was a Devon; her dam was half Shropshire and half French. An awful circumstance took place at Mil- borne Port, on the evening of Saturdav se'n- night a poor woman in the work-house, being charged concerning some trivial article- that was missing, wished God might strike her dumb, blind, and dead, if she knew any thing of it. About six o'clock she eat her supper as well as usual, soon after her speech faulter- ed, her eyes closed, and before seven she was a breathless corpse, without any apparent cause On Friday se'nnight or Saturday morning a weaver in Hamilton rose from his bed, and after stabbing his wife in various parts of the body, cut her throat. He then proceeded to the place where his potatoes were kept, and put an end to his existence, by severing almost completely his heMI from his body. There is no doubt that the unhappy man was in- sane. THE KiNG.-Tiic interest taken in the state of his Majesty's health is as sincere, if not as strong, as at any time since the commence, ment of his malady. We are happy, there, fore, to announce to our readers that his Ma- jesty's situation is as favourable as under all the circumstances could be expecled.

On the ques- tion, for the petition being read, Lord Kenyon said, he had to regret that the Noble Earl was not present Oil the occasion of the meeting I which gave rise to the petition, as then lie; would think differently of it from what he did. That meeting of the county, of which nine or ten days notice had been given, was the fullest ever known. A Noble Earl (Gros- venor) not. wit (islanding his exertions t o collect a number of friends to support his own pecu- 'I liar opinions on the subject, could only get one individual, and wilh wholll two oilier* sided. Since the period of that meeting, lie was informed from persons on whose authori- ty be could confide, that the agents of that Noble Lord had gone about among those who were absolutely dependent upon him, in order to gain their support to the petition in ques- tion and two in particular, tenants of the Noble Lord, were threatened with severe con- sequences if they witheld their sanction to it. The Earl of Essex ill explanation, said he was informed lhalthc pditlOlI wasigned hy some, of the most respectable persons in thai coullty. Lord Kenyon shortly explained,and observed, he had distinct information on tile Subject to which he alluded. The petition was then read and ordered to lie on the table.

BUNDLING! MR. EDITOR-With a view to counteract, and as far as possible to suppress the odious and in- decent practice of Bundling, (thv only remaining badge of Barbarism amongst us), we earnestly re- commend to every father of a family, every mas- ter of an establishment, to associate for that pur- poe-for Illlti1 a custom, so abhorrent from reft- soji and shame, is put down—very little efficae), can be hoped, either from the extention of edu- cation, or from the circulation of the Scriptures. The following Resolutions would perhaps as- sist the object:— I. That associations similar to, or connected with, those for the Prosecution of Felons, be formed, for the purpose of suppressing the odious and (in the eye of the world) felonious offence of Bundling. 2. That the expences be equally borne by all the members, in detecting and prosecuting any persons obtruding themselves at unlawful hours. 3.
