We heartih congratulate our readers on the soleiulid victory obtained by..our brave couu- -trytiteii in Spain, the particulars of which we have fully inserted,as published in IheGa-z-elt.e, but from the considerable-space it occupies in our columns, we are obliged this, week to omil our usual polwicaS digest. When Lord Wellington wrote his last dis. paich, he was at [run, on the froniiers of Spam, IfllII is distant aboill twenty-one milesfroiii Bayonne, where magazines of arms and stores had been established; so red was the alarm al the laller place, that the inhabi- tants were removing their most -valuable ef- fects, and little or no resistance was expected to he g, I veil to our army, OUT loss on tins memorable battle,consisted only of 500 men killed, and 2807 wo-ind-ed.— That of the enemy has not yet been officially particularized: but .ve understand thai op to the 25th, 5000 prisoners have been brought ill; and that their killed and wounded w is little short of fifteen thousand. The treasure foiled in ilw milItary cnesi, though previous iy plundered, amounted to 630,000 francs,— L'kewise 9000 head of cattle fell into the pos- session of the victors. We are glad to he able to inform the pub lie, that the Chapel, at the Slate Quarry, in the parish of Llaudegai, erecled by the iaie Lord Penrhyn, and endowed by 5h niu::i!i- ceiiec of* his Lady,will be Consecrated to the service of Almighty God, on Sunday, tue 25th of this month, according to the Kites of onr Established Church, by the Lord bishop of ttiis Diocese. Last week a man was convicted at Welling- lon, in the initialed penalty oft, wenty pounds, for-Ielling tithes by alletiou, without a licence. The usual Message from the Prince Regent, for a vote of Credit, preparatory io the ter- mination of the Session, was brought down to Parliament on Wednesday lasl. The amount is io be j £ '5,000.

This will preserve bacon from rusting, and keep it above a twelvemonth as good as at the lirs; day. An Address to theCalholic population o! Ireland has been prepared by a Committee of of the Catholic Board of Dublin. It professes to recommend prudence and circumspection, but is calculated only to excite discontent and clamour. It recommends petitions from every town, village and parish, and adds, that the petitions should be signed by every man, woman, and child in the kingdom. Under the decree issued by Buonaparte on the 6th of April, 1809, on the subject of natu- ralization, a Special Court at Pans, on the 14-th ol June, condemned to death M. Joseph Darguines, 23 years of age, born at Aries, but who had retired into Spain with his when he was fourteen years of age. He had obtaiued the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel in the Spanish service, and in that quality he signed the capitulation of the garrison of Figueras. M. Chapeau Lngarde, Ilii Counsel, urged in his defence that the law was not plicable to those who had been naturalised anterior to the issuing of the Decree but !he Judges declared, that no subject could with draw himself from the allegiance he owed to bis Sovereign, and that no letters of ijatui ill sation obtained from a foreign GovernirienI icould be pleaded by one who had bornc'arms against his country, and incurred the penalty of treason. The prisoner was ordered for execution. A corps has recently been formed in Berlin from among the natives of the Tyrol who had taken refuge in that capital, on the annexa- tion of their country to Bavaria, and the king dom of Italy. Their number amounts to 1800 lien. Their leader is Jacob RieJel, who dis- distinguished himself as an active partizan •nder the patriotic Hofer. K<>tzehue, illlhe Journal published under his direction in Ber- j 'in, speaks in warm terms of the zeal & talents j (>f R iedel, who is distinguished as much by his attachment to Ihe House of Austria, as by his hatred to the French Ruler. The injuries sus- tained by him are of no ordinary magnitude; his wife, his son, his daughter, and a brother (Adjutant to Hofer) having been butchered by the French during the campaign against Austria, and the whole of his properly confis- caled. The corps has been attached to the army under Gen. Von Bulow, and ;I as on Ihree occasions distinguished itself in a manner j which entitled it to receive the acknowledg- j meats of the Prussian General. Upon a late hial in the Court of Common Pleas, Dublin, an Attorney of the ¡p.me o! Hope pressed for his Counsel, Mr. Joy, to al | tend.

Lisbon. — A circumstance has occurred here, which has caused soml: conversation :—The wife ot a Quarter-master, who happened to be resid- "'X "i Lisbon, while her husoaiid was with the army, was eugaged ill performing some domestic duties, such as washing1 or clear-starching some trifling habiliments belonging to herself, when | the Host pa-sed by. It is no uncommon thing here to see a pole fastened from a window, which supports, perhaps, a cravat a Gen:lenian's sliir!, or a Lady's'chetnise. This Lady was in the act of .(lie pole when tiie Most passed hy, and probably hems: more engaged in temporal affairs than spiritual, she did not pay that res- pect which Ihe Host or its attendants always in- sist upon. The attendants on the Host, indigjnanr that they should not be noticed in jhat manner, to which they conceived they were alwyj s ell- titled, thought I)tiiiisti this heretic Signora, and they contrived to cut. the thread which was connected wth the pole, and which supported what they conceived to possess all the objects of her adoration. This was so eflectually- done, that the chemise, the caps, the ktrchief, &e. which had vitriolic acid to bleach them, and which had cost ber no small labour, were in one moment immersed in the streets of Lisbon, which are known to be distinguished, particularly'in wet weather, by a quality the opposite of that which the perfumes of Arabia possess. The. Lady wit- nessing ail her labours vanish in a moment, «.nl perceiving the cause, instantly fiew to arms. In breathless rage she attacked the attendants o.
