A very interesting and extraordinary ope- ration lias recently been successfully perforin ed by Mr. Lynne, on a man who had lost the whole of his under-lip by a cancer. The ope ration was conducted on the principal of a known prartice in India, of restoring a lost nose, by means of the adjacent skin being raisclltrom the flesh, and after being scarih ed, and folded over, is made It) form the part required, taking care to preserve ttic ciretila- tion of the blood. In this instance the skin was brought up from the throat, and the lip is so perfectly formed that the man can pro nounce all the labial letters quite distinct; and from being an object ol misery to himself, and disgust to others, there is now scarcely any blemish to he observed.
POLITICAL SUMMARY. NORTHERN WAR.-Bic the Hamburgh Pa- pers of the 13th, it appears that a Russian Army, IlIIdcrBarclay de Tolli, was at Pozen on the 3d inst, proceeding to join the Allied Army on the Elbe. The retreat of the Allies would have been, of course, communicated 10 the Russian General, and so accelerated bis movements as to bring him in co-operation with the main Army in a few days. Such re- inforcement must be of the most important consequences. The Russian account of the murderous bailie" of Lutzen, exhibits sin- gular bravery and determination onholll sides, and an immense slaughter. Whatever may have been the motives upon which !Iii! Allies adopted the measure of retreat, there can be little doubt of their having maintained the field of battle at Ihe conclusion of the 2d of May. We cannot now look more deeply at the subject. The account of the battle, cir- culated by the Allies, among other things, alleges, thai the chief object ot Wittgenstei.t's attack on the 2d of May, was to involve the best troops of the French in the battle, and to diminish their-number effectually, perhaps by defeat, but to a great extent by the conflict, and this advantage, it is slated, has been ac- complished, the French having lost 15,000 of those troops, who sustained the brunt of the contest. The part which Austria will take in the war is yet equivocal. Hopes exist that she will join the Allies but nothing beyond conjecture can he ventured as to her policy. The French were driven with considerable loss from the sinall Island in the Elbe, within a short distance of Hamburgh, which they had occupied, and from which they intended to have attacked the city. There is an official account of the transaction to this effect. Thf Danish troops, it appears, co-operated in the defence of Hamburgh, for what objects, ulli, mately, it is not easy to ascertain. Sweden has avowed her designs upon Norway, ghe ofrer s, in justification of her intention, the physical connection of Norway wilh the Swe- dish territory, and sets up a right, or at least it is set up for her, in a Stockholm Paper, upon very untenable grounds, while she may alledge a legitiiiiate calise of war, in the adhe- rence of Denmark to French policy, and her opposition to the objects of the A lited Powers.

My LORD- I have the satisfaction to inform your Lordship, that the allied army under my command defeated the enemy on the 13th inst. commanded by Marshal Suchet in person. It appears that the French General had, for the purpose of attacking this army, for some time been employed in collecting his whole dis- posable force. lIis arrangements were complet- ed on the 10th. and in the morning of the llth, he attacked and dislodged, with some loss, a Spanish norps, posted by General Elio, at Yecla, which threatened his right, whilst it supported our left Hank. In rhe evening he advanced ill considerable force to Viilena, and I am sorry to say, that he captured, on the mornitimofflie 12th, a Spanish garrison, which had been thrown into Use Castle by the Spanish General, for its de- fence. On the 12th, about noon, Marshal Suchet began his attack on the advance of this army posted at Biar, under the command of Colonel Adam. Colonel Adam's orders were to fall back upon Cas'alia, but to dispute the passage with the enemy which he did with the utmost gallantry and skill, for live hours, though attacked by n force inlinitely superior to that which he com- mnuJed. The enemy's advance occupied the pass that evening, and Colonel Adam took lip the ground in our position which had been alot- 1ed ÍO him. On the 13th at noon, the enemy's columns of afiackwereformed.composed of three divisions of infantry, a corps of cavalry of about 1600 men, and a formidable train of artillery. The position of the allied army was extensive. The left was posted on a strong range of hills, occu- pied by Major-General W hittingham's division of Spanish troops, and the advance of the allied of he allied army under Colonel Adam. This range of hills terminates at Castalla, which, and the ground to the right, was occupied by Major-General -Mackenzie's division, and the 531h regiment, from that of Lieutenant-General Clinton. The remainder of the position was covered bv ravine, behind which Lieut.- General Clinton was stationed, supported by three battalions of Genera! Roche's division, as a column of reserve. A few batteries had been constructed in this part of the line, and in front •-of the Castle of Castalla. The enemy ne- cessarily advanced on the left of the posi- tion. The first movement he made was to pass a strong body of cavalry along the line, threatening our right, which was refused. Of this movement no notice was taken; the ground to which he was pointing, is unfavourable to ca- valry, and as this movement was foreseen, the necessary precautions had been taken: when this hody of cavalry ha:1 passed nearly the half of our line of infantry, Marshal Suchet advanced his columns to the foot of the hills, and certainly his troops, with a degree of gallantry that enti- tles them ro the highest praise, stormed the whole line, which is not less than two miles and a half in extent. But gallantly as the attack was made, the defence of the heights was not less brilliant; at every point the enemy was repulsed, at many with the bayonet. He suffered a very severe loss; our gallant troops pursued him for some distance, and drove 'him, after a severe struggle, with precipitation on his battalious of reserve upon the plain. The cavalrj, which had slowly advanced along our right, gradually Tell back to the infantry. At prcsent his superiority in that arm enabled him to this movement, which otherwise he should have severely repented. Having united liis shattered battalions with those which he kept in reserve, Marshal Suchet took up a position in the y but which it would not have been credible to allow him to retain. I therefore de- cided on quitting mine; still, however, retaining the heights, and formed the allied army in his front, covering my right, flank with the cavalry -wliilst tllc left I,t!steci oli the hill. The army ad- vanced in two lines to attack him a considerable distance, hut unfortunately Marshal Suchet did not choose to risk a second action, with the de- iiie in his rear. The line of the allies was scarcely formed .when he began his retreat, and we could effect nothing more than driving the French into the pass with defeat, which they h id exulting passed in the morning.—The action terminated at dusk, with a distant but heavy cannonade. I am sorry to ■say that I have no trophies to boast of. The eneinj took no guns to the heights, and he rc- treatd tao expeditiously to enable ine to reach him. Those which he used in the latter part of the (lal, were posted in the gorge of the defile, and it would have cost us the lives of many brave men tntake them. In the dusk, the aUied army returned to its position at Castalla, after the enemy had retired to Biar, From'thencehe con- tinued his retreat at midnight to Viilena, which he quitted again this morning in great haste, di- recting his march upon Fuente de la Higueraand Onteraente. But although I have taken no cannon from the enemy, in point of numbers his army is very considerably crippled, and the defeat of a French army which had boasted it had never krown a check, cannot fail, I should hope, in producing 1 a most favourable effect in this part of the Penin- sula. As I have before mentioned to your Lord- ship, Marshal Suchet commanded in person. The Generals Harispe Hubert, and Rohert, com- manded their respective divisions. I hear from all quarters that General Harispe is killed; and J believe, from every account that I can collect, the loss of the enemy amounts fully to three thousand men; and he admits two thousand five hundred. Upwards of 800 have already been buried in front of only one part of our line and we know that he has carried (,Y wi,ii hi-ii-i an im- mCltse BtlllIher of wounded We had no oppor- tunity of making prisoners, except such cas were wounded the numbers of whiuh have not yet reached me. 1 a in sure your Lordship will hear with much satisfaction, that this action has not cost us the lives of many of our comrades. Deeply must be felt the loss, however trifling. of such brave and gallant solders; buf we know it is inevitable, and 1 can with truth affirm, that there wa-i not an ofifcer or soldier engaged who did not court the glorious termination of an ho- lIourabie life, in the discharge of his (Illty to his King and country. The gallant and judicious conduct of those that were engaged, deprived much more than one hall the army of sharing in the perils and glory of the day but the steady countenance with which the divisions of Generals Clinton and Mackenzie remained for some hours under a cannonade, and the eagerness and ala- under a cannonade, and the eagerness and ala- crity with which the lines of attack were formed, sufficienlly proved to me what I had to depend on from them, had Marshal Suchet awaited the attack. I trust your Lordship will now permit me to perform the most pleasing part of my duty, that of humbly submitting for his Royal High- ness the Prince Regent's approbation, the names of those officers and corps which have had the fortunateopportunityof distinguishing themselves in as far at least as has yet come to my know- ledge. Colonel Adam, who commands the ad- vance, claims the first place in this honourable list. I cannot sufficiciiily, praise the judicious arrangements he made, and the ability with which he executed his orders on the 12fh instant. The advance consists only of the second batta- lion of the 27th regiment, commanded by LicnL Colonel Reeves; the 1st Italian regiment, com- manded by Lieut.-Col. Burke the Calahrian Free corps, commanded by Major Carey: one rifle company of 'he 3d and 8th battalions King's German Legion, commanded by Captains Lueder and Bratins of those corps and a troop of fo- reign hussars, under the orders of Capt. Jacks, of the 20th dragoons, with four mountain guns, in charge of Capt. Arabin, royal artillery. The enemy attacked this corps with from five to Six thousand men, and after five hours (& then only in consequence of orders) succeeded, in pos- sessing himself of the pass. This fact alone says more in favor of Col. Adam, and in praiseofthose he commands, than any words of mine can ex- press. I shall therefore confine myself to assur- ing your Lordship, that the conduct of all en- gaged in this hrilliant affair, merits, and has met with, my highest, approbation. Colonel Adam was wounded very erly in the attack, but con- tinued, and still continues in charge of his divi- sion. On the 13th, the attack of the enemy on Col. Adam's division was very severe, but the enemy was defeated at every point, and a most gallant charge of the 2d, 27th, led by Col Adam and Lieut.- Col. Reeves, decided the fate of the day, at that part of the field ofhattle. The skill, judgment, and gallantry displayed by Major- General Whittingham and division of the Spanish arm), rivals, though it cannot surpass the con- duct of Colonel Adam and the advance: Atevery point the enemy was repulsed; at many. at the point of the bayonet. At one point in particular I must mention, where a French grenadier bat- talion had gained the summit of the hill, hut was charged and driven from the heights by a corps under the command of Colonel Casans. Major-Genera! Whittingham highly applauds, and 1 know it is not without, reason, "tlw conduct of Colonels Casans, Romero, Campbell, Castefas, and Lieut.-Colonel Ochoa, who commanded at various points of the hills. To the chief of his Staff, Colonel Serano, he likewise expresses himself to be equally obliged on this, as well as mafty other occasions and lie with gratitude the services of Colonel Castinelli, of the Staff of the Italian Levy, who was attached to hilIl during the day. These, my the officers and corps that 1 ammosf anxious to re- commend to his Royal Highness's notice and protect ion, anil I earnestly entreat your Lordship will most respectfully, on my part, report their merits to the Prince Regent, ant', to the Spanish Government. It now only remains for me to ac knowledge the co-operation and support I have met with from the scveral General Officers and Brigadiers, as well as from the various officers in charge of departments attached to this army.— To Major-Genera) Donkin, Quarter Master Ge- neral, I am particularly indebted, for the zeal and ability with which he conducts the duties of his extensive department, and the gallantry he displays on every occasion. Major Kenah, who is at the head of the Adjutant-General's depart- ment, affords me every satisfaction. Lieut Col. Holcombe, and, under his orders, Major Willi- amson, conduct the artillery branch of the service in a manner highly creditable. The different brigades of guns, under Captains Lacy, Thom- son and. Gilmour (and Garcia, of the Sicilian army), and Lieut. Patton, of the flying artillery, were extremely useful, and most gallantly served and the Portuguese supported the reputation their countrymen have acquired. The army is now in march. I proceed to Alcoy in the hope, but not the sanguine hope, that T may be enabled to force the Albayda Pass, and reach the en- trenched position of the enemy of San Felippe, beförehe can arrive there I consider this movement a. promising greater advantages thau a direct pursuit, as the road which he has chosen being very favourable for cavalry, in which arm he is so much superior, I should probably be de- layed too long to strike any blow of importance. I beg leave to enclose a return of the kilied and wounded of the allied army. 1 have the honor to (Signed) J. MURRAY, Lieut.-Gen. P. S.

Captain Arabin obeyed his orders, and fought them till it was impossible to get them off, had such been Colonel Adam's desire. (Signed") J. MUR.HAY, Return of Hilled, .Wounded, and Missing.

PAR LI AM EN T. HOUSE OF LORDS, FRIDAY, MAY 21. STIPENDIARY CURATES BILL- The Order of the Day being read, The Earl of Harrowby moved the third reading of this Bill. The Bishop of London stated at length the ob- jection he entertained against the expediency of this measure. When the Bill was in the Com- mittee, although he suggested the propriety of some amendments, yet he foresaw that it nevei could be so modelled as to free it from the ob jections against its interference with the subordi- nation of the Church. In looking at its proba- ble effects, he considered great inconveniencies would arise.—The subordination of the different ranks, so necessary to the well-being of the Ec- clesiastical Government, would be destroyed the I Curate would ->e at variance with the Incumbent, and a COllsadt interference of the lower with the higher orders of that class of the Clergy would he perpetually recurring, In cases where the livins: was not more than eighty, a hundred, and a hundred and twenty pounds a year, the whole of that living might, according to this Bill, he appropriated to the use of the Curate; and he thought this iii-o%,isiot, in ni;tt)y i;istan(,.es Nvoul,l have an injurious effect. Besides, it would be recollected that there were eight hundred livings which were under fifty pounds per annum. Upon the whole, he expressed his conviction that the part which was intended to leave discretion in the Bishops, would not cure its defects, and could not be carried into execution. The Right Rev Prelate concluded by moving, in the way of a- mendmenf, that the Bill be read this day three months." The Lord Chancellor left the Woolsack, and shortly addressed the House upon the probable effects of this legislative interference. He was convinced that injurious consequences would re- sult, and that the objects in contemplation would not be attained. If residence were the intenl ion of this measure, why not enforce the residence of the Incumbent, by declaring, that if he did not reside, he should forfeit the Jiving, and then the Patron would have an opportunity of present- ing one who would be induced to fulfil the inten- tion of the Legislature ? That there should be a Clergyman resident in every parish was most de- sirable; but did the present Bill make any pro- vision for carrying that purpose into actual prac- tice? it provided, that if the Incumbent did not reside, the Curate should have the whole of the living, if 801. or 1001. or 1201. per annum; but did it make any provision for the residence of the Curate? Suppose the Curate, after this in- terference with the Incumhent should not reside, had any progress been made to enforce or secure the residence of a Clergyman? He could also per- ceive several mischiefs which might arise. Sup- pose an Incumbent having a living of that Sum, which, for non-residence under this Bill, would be wholly consigned to the use of the Ctirafe and suppose he were to become a rich Dean, of 12001. a year, would, he be obliged to resign.? He certainly would not; and thus incumbents might, in the first instance, take these small livings for no intention whatever, of rendering-or perform- ing the duties, but of getting the living appro- priated to the use of some Curate; and in this way the Patron would lose his patronage during the life of that Incumbent. In other cases most severe hardships might be experienced, where the Bishops would be called upon to enforce those enactments against a man, who, for a number of years had discharged his duty in a parish, to the satisfaction of all; who had, by his economy, brought upland supported a numerous family, and of all others in the diocese, was the most distin- guished for the exemplariness and exercise of his virtues. The Noble anti Learned Lord con- cluded by observing, lllat this measure could have no good consequences, but he was sure It would have many evil ones. Lord Redesdale defended the principles and provisions or the Bill. He did IInr view tiie pro pcrty of the Church in the manner it appeared to be coHsideredby others; that property he attri- huted to the Church as a whole, but it did not belong as private property to its individual mem- bers. Much had been said about the poverty of the Church, but the Church, in his opinion, pos- sessed riches sufficient; and the only defcct was in the uneqnal distribution but one of its great- est and indispensable duties was, to provide a re- sident Clergyman to■ perform the duties of the Church in every parish in the kingdom-. The principle of the Bill had that object in its view, and its provisions were calculated to pro- duce the effect. lie had said oil t foi-iiier occa- sion that there was a decrease in the perform- ance of duty by the lowel orders of the Clergy, and his observations had been commented upon by several of the Bishops, with a degree of warmth, but he must say that from his own knowledge in many places, he knew that to be I he fact. With respect to the Rev. Prelates themselves, it was not they should know or all the grievallces which existed, for in the case of families, all their Lordships must be aware that the last person to be apprised of dis- orderly conduct was the -ter of the house. The Noble and Learned Lord made many other observations in favour of the Bill. The Lord Chancellor and Lord Redesdale seve- ral times explained. The Bishop of Worcester delivered his senti- InPuts in opposition to the Bill fle rhe preeut svstem of Church Livings,andconsi dered any interference of Legislative authority, to be of a dangerous nature to the Ecclesiastical Constitution. The Earl of Liverpool thought he was called upon to state the reasons upon which he intended to supportthe present measure. He perfectly i coincided with many observations made by the Reverend Prelate, who had sat down and there were two points in his No'oleand learned Friend's (Redesdale) speech, in which he did not concur. In respect to the poverty of the Church, his firm belief was, that considering- the Established Church as a whole, he did not perceive that any individual o!1i¡;e had m()rc than su:licicnt to lIIaill- fain its use. Among the higher or- tiers, tic was convinced, that noone enjoyed more than he ought, to possess and among (he lower orders, there were a great: many who hall not what was sufficient and adequate for the due per- formance of their duty. This subject had occu- pied his attention long before this time, and he was eOllvinced that some addition was necCssary and when the cireumsumces of the country would permit, the increase of the small livings ought to he taken into considerat ion. There was another point in which he did not agree with his Noble and Learned Friend, and that was the railing off of late years in the performance of duty among the lower orders of the Clergy. Now he had made inquiry info this subject, and though his own knowledge was confined, he had an oppor- tunity of acquiring considerable information from others, .and lie was led to believe (hat the per- formance of 'duty had improved. Some years ago there might have been a sudden deficiency in ihe duties of the Clergy,for when that philosophy- spread over Europe, and cvell infused itself into all the establishments of this country while it overturned ihe existence of those in another kingdom, had even a tendency to relax and dimi- nish (he exertion of ecclesiastical as well as other duties; hut,when experience had shewn the fat- city of rheoretical doctrines mankind became more inclined to perform those duties closely which were founded upon the wisdom of ancient institutions. He also had to acquiesce in the sentiments of .those who were of opinion, that those discussions tended to do good and one effect was, their bringing to the considera- tion of all Clergymen, what were the peculiar duties which belonged to their situation. On both these accounts he was of opinion, that resi- dence and performance of duty among the lower orders of the Clergy had increased. The Noble Earl next proceeded to praise the system of hie- rarchy in this country It was IllIequal, and of a mixed complexion, and therefore more consistent with the other parts of our Constitution. As to the Bill itself, he thought nothing could be more simple than the principles on which it was found- ed. Itesidence- wag au object desired by all, and in those instances where the living1 was not ade- qna e to the support of an incumbent and a Cu- rate, this Bill provided that it should be appro prlated to one only. The Noble Earl, after speaking generally in favour of this Bill, con- cluded by saying it should have his support. The arl of Radnor opposed the Bill. I The Archbishop of Canterbury repeated many of the former objections he had to the Bill, and although the clause relating to discretion, in his opinion, might have had a different construction, yet, under the interpretation given to it by the Right Rev. Bench, he did think this measure would be productive of evil consequences. Earl Grosvenor opposed the Bill, on the ground of its being improper to interpose any legislative interference with respect to the performance of duties among the Clergy Lord Grenville defended the propriety and ex- pediency of the Bill, which he considered well call calculated to remove one inconvenience par- ticularly complained of, he meant the non-resi- dence of a Clergyman in each parinh. He pro- fessed the highest regard for the Church Estab- lishment, and on that account was more favoura- ble to the present meesure. But with all his re- gard to the Ecclesiastical Members of that Es- tablishment, great consideration was due to the community. It was actually necessrry that a Clergyman should reside at his living for the duties of reading the service and delivering a sermon, though high, were not the highest (Iu- ties of the profession. The instruction of the young, the visitation of the poor and sick, and the consolation of the dying, were duties of the highest consideration, and could not be perform- ed but by a resident Clergyman. Lord Kenyan though favourable to the provi- sions of this Bill, when first suggested in the Committee, yet he could not in his conscience give it his support, when he found that such strong objections against it were entertained by the Right Reverend Prelates, whose administra- tion was to carry it into execution. Lord Ellenborough argued atconsiderablelength against the Bill. The question of plurality his Lordship considered as too wide to he entered into in I he present debate. His Lordship contend- ed, that non-residence was chiefly caused by the poverty of benefices, and in part by want of houses to livings. A Noble Lord (Redesdale) had said that the Church had sufficient riches, if they were more equally divided. This was a le- velling, a democratizing principle, which he did not expect to hear from the Noble Lord. The unequal division of property was common to all classes in the State, and was beneficial to the na- tion. For his part (to borrow an expression from his own profession,) he did not wish to see a pie poudre Clergy he was not disposed to see the Church trodden in the dirt. Froi-n the effect of the French Revolution, which had in some respects been the scourge of mankind, and from the conduct of that monster who was now on the Banks of the Elbe, religion had gained ground in this country, and the condition of mankind had improved. It was but fair that the Clergy should participate in the general amelioration.— The Noble art(I Learned Lord expressed his fears as to the description of-persons who would find their way into the Church, should the Bill pass. He would therefore vote for the postpone- ment. Lord Harrowby replied to the Noble and Learn- ed Lord (Ellenborough ;) he thought the Bill, as modified, ought to pass, and contended that it was necessary to meet the exertions of sectar- ists.
