MURDER. A MOST REMARKABLE CASE. On Saturday the Lords of the Council met in the Council Chamber, Whitehall, to hear a charge of murder committed beyond seas.— There were present on the occasion The Lord Chancellor, the Lord President, the Lord Chief Justice of the Court of King's Bench, theXord Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas, the Lord Chief Baron, the Master of the Uolls, and the Right Hon. B. Bathuvst. The Attorney and Solicitor Gene- rals attended their Lordships, as did Viscount Chetwynd as Clerk. The person charged was brought from Tothill-fields Bridewell: he is a Gentleman in the Commissariat Department, and was in the army under the Duke of Wellington. He is charged with shooting a female with a pistol, while in Portugal; to prove which, three wit- nesses were produced, who all stated, that, after the piisouer had shot the female, he had cut his own throat wi'h a razor, hut had reco- vered from the wound, and that it was only very lately he had recovered so much as to be able to talk. The defence -set up by the prisoner was as foliows.. -He stated that the deceased coha- bited with another gentleman, in the Commis- sariat Department j'that he and the deceased, after becoming acquainted, had become most passionately and violently attached to each other, but the deceased had so much honour that she could not leave the Gentleman she was then cohabiting with to live with him, or even to marry him s and as they could not live together, they agreed to kill each other. They accordingly met for that purpose, when he shot her with a pistol, and this was so ef I fectuaily done, that she could not shoot him he therefore attempted to shoot himself, but the bullet thai he had got, would not go in the pistol, being too large j he then put the bullet at the top of his head, and put the mnz- zle of the pistol on it, Slip posing it might an- swer the purpose, but not succeediog with that, hect11 hislhroat. The prisoner was re- mauded to Tolhill-fieids Bridewell.
KLAPROTH'S TRAVELS. Klaproth, in his Travels in the Caucasus and Georgia, in 1802, under the auspices of the Russian government, found a British mis sionary settlement eslshlished since the year 1802, at the foot of the highest of the Bes chtau mountains. It consisted of eight fami- lies, and was partly supported by the Scottish Society for the propagation of file The main objects of their establishmentare lhe translation of the Bible into the Tartar Ian guage, and the coirversion of the neighbouring heathens to cliristiati-ity -I' As these Mis sionaries enjoy the right of purchasing slaves, they already possess several Techerkessiaiis asul Tartars, whom they hase..instructed in the precepts of Christianity and baptized,-with the intention of restoring them, at some future tune, to liberty, Excellent as the object and plan of this institution may be, it seems very doublful whether it will ever accomplish the aim of the founders since it is extremely dif- ficult to persuade the Asiatics to embrace a religion unaccompanied by external ceremo- nies, aud the moral pari od'a11 religions is almost invariabiy alike. The missionaries have moreover excited the animoeity of the neighbouring N'ogay Tartars, by Hie oJ conver- sion of a person belonging to one of the prin- I cipal families in that nation. Their houses are small and very ill built but they have commenced the erection of a morO spacious edifice, where they mean to reside together, and where, according to the plan, they will have abundance of room." LKlaproth further gives an account of the attempt made by the Missionaries at Sa, repta, near Astrachan, to diffuse the light of revelation among the Tartars of the C&uca casus. This institution dates a considerable; way back, and consists cf Herrnhutters or United Brethren of whom two, Gottfried Grobsch and George Gruhl, set out, in the beginning of the year 1782, on the hazardous enterprise of preaching the gospel to the pagans of the mountains. At Tiflis they were favourably received by Ptince or Czar Irakli or Heraclius; but the success of their efforts appears to have been very limited, and the advantage resulting from the establishment at Sare|)la seems to have been in a great mea sure confined to the adjacent tribes. Tiflis, the capita! of Georgia, is thus described by our traveller:—44 litlis makes a very mean for since the last destruction of Agha Mohammod Chan, in September 1795, great part of it a heap of rubbish, not id01 e than two thirds of the houses having been rebuilt. The streets are so narrow that the most spacious of them are barely wide enough to admit a carriage without incon- venience; whereas in the cross streets, there is scarcely room for a horseman, and in dirty weather too pedestrians often find it difficult to pass one another. The houses are care iessly hui-It oil the Georgian fashien of bricks and rough stones intermixed, and cemented with dung or clay, so that they scarcely ever statid more that, years. There is not one large or prominent building in the whole city: some Ceorgiill princes, accustomed to the Russian manners, have indeed erected for t hems fives habitations which commonly have i wo stories aud a gallery running round them hut with these exceptions no other objects meet the eye than wretched «tone huts, most of which are extremely filthy. Windows are to be found in very few of Ihern; instead of these they have holes, which are not alwiytiso much as stopped with oiled paper. Titlis has two markets, (tiasuri) contain ing together 704 shops, kept principally by Armenian,Tartar,aud Georgian tradesmen for here are but very few Russians, who ex pose their goods for sale in what is called the Armenian hazar. These markets comprehend according to the Asiatic fashion, the work, shops of all the artisans. You here lind a whole street, inhibited exclusively by shoe makers, another occupied by the shops of cap makers, aiul a third by those of smiths.— Siik-spissuers, silver-smiths, gun makers, and sword cutlers, all pursue their respective oc cupations, and by their public industry atforc a pleasing spectacle to the traveller; so that the basar is one of the most iutercsting wallis in Ti tl is. & lhe population of Tiflis, esclusively of the Russian civil officers resident there, and the garrison, is computed at 78,000 souls, nearly halt of whom are Armenians. "The celaorated warm baths here were once very magnificent, but are now much de cayed yet fnust ofthein are still floored and lined with marble. The water contains only a small proportion of sulphur, but is extreme- ly salubrious. The natives, and the women iu particular, carry their fondness for batliiii" to such excess, that tliey frequently remain in the baths for the whole day together, and have their meals brought thither to them from theirown houses. Fiom the use of the bath twice a week at Tiflis, I and my whete retinue experienced great benefit." In the neighbourhood of Tcherkassk, M. Klaproth witnessed all extraordinary spectacle. It was (says he) a battle between a vulture and my great Chinese hound, which I had brought with me from Siberia. This spirited animal used to keep constantly on the look outsfor game and birds by the way, and just when *>ur carriages stopped here he was beat iug about the whole country, He«pied some- thing in a small pit, crept towards-it, and im- mediaiely sprang in. I hastened to the spot, and found him engaged in a desperate battle with a vulture, whose wing lie had probably dislocated or broken at the first onset. The issue of this contest might perhaps have been I unfortunate for him, as his antagouisl used all the means ill his power to peck out his eyes, I had not a blow from my stick soon extended the vulture on the ground, and thus terminated j this singular coutllctbclweell the jquadtuped 1 and the bird."
MISCELLANEOUS. There is now growing on Vaynor Park Farm, Montgomeryshire, belonging to John Winner, Esq. a Turnip weighing 20lbs, and 1 yard 1 inch in circumference. The Buke of Cumberland and his wife, » dtvant Princess of Sal iii-o, are expected in Eng- land after Christmas. A monument to Gen, Moreau is erecting by order of the Emperor of Russia, on the spot where he was mortally wounded. The Committee of Master Manufacturers and Tradesmen of Bristol, haveultanimollsly resolved, that a piece of plate, with a suitable inscription, shall be presented to Mr. Serjeant Onsiow, as a testimony of their gratitude for his exertions tor the relief of trade and manu- in the repeal of the ob- noxious restraints imposed by the statute, 5th Elizabeth, on Apprenticeships. The King of Naples has written to one of his friends at Paris, that if an attempt shall he made to dispute with hlluthe possession of his throne, he will act in such a way that they stiall [lot easily send him to the Isle of Elba. It has been proposed in the American House of Representatives, and referred to a Commit- tee., that every Deserter from the British Army shallhaH lOG acres to settle upe-;i. The representations made to the French Go. vernment up: the facilities granted to Ame- rican privateers in French ports have been success) ul. We are told IbalallAmericallships are now excluded from those ports. A belief is entertained that the Duke of Wellington wiU soon return to this country. His Grace finds his residence at Paris uncom- fortable nay, it is added, that his life is in danger. So far from tiie French conceiving (he selection of so illustrious a (haradcr to be a compliment to them, they consider it as an affront. —We confess that we should not be sorry to find the report of the Duke's return correct. Rumours were in circulation of some dis- turbances in France, and that the French Go vernment had prepared orders for an additi- onal levy of 80 or 100,000 men. The latter measure is reported to have been suggested by Talleyrand, III order to give additional weight to his lie at Vienna, We doubt this rel)ort-'tii-I ley ratid is too wise to attempt to threaten iiie Allies, and the Allies are not like- ly to be awed by any menaces from France at the present moment. In the year 1272. the pay of n hthouring man was three hall pence a day In 1274, the price of a Bible with a commentary, fairly written, was 301.—It is further worthy of re- mark, that, in the year 1240, the building of two arches of London bridge cost 251.; five pounds less than the value of a Bible Happy for our labourers, they may now obtain for one day's pay, what would have cost them j more than thirteen jears labour lo procure. • A number of regiments ave forming in Ha- nover under the direction of the Duke of Cam- bridge the Officers are to be composed ex- clusively of Hanoverian nobility. Lord Walsingham retires from the office of Chairman of the Committees of the House of Lords with a pension of 20001. per annum for life, and a reversion of 10001. a year to his daughters. An alarming accident occurred at Barley Wood, on Thursday, but is not likely to be at- tended with any serious consequences, to Mrs. Hannah Moore, who is now nearly recovered. This justly celebrated lady, in reaching a book in her library, suffered her shawl to catch tire, and before any assistance could arrive, a great p,art of her dress was burnt. The failure of Whitehead, Howard, & Had- dock, is attributed solely to Whitehead's spe- cuiation in Omnium and Spanish wool. Mr. Howard, a man of large fortune, brought 80,0001, into the concern, and was in noways implicated in the cause of its ruin.—Main war- nings was never esteemed an opulent house—011 the day of their stopping, it is asserted, that they continued to receive, after they had dis- continued to ptiy, In the Court of King's Bench, Nov. 16ih, a motion was made for a Mandamus, command iug a person of the name of Jones to deliver tip to the ChurchwardetM of Godalming in Surrey, the keys of the parish clitireli.-Lor(i Ellenbo- rough said there was a much shorter way than a Mandamus-instead of applying to the At lorney, he should have applied to the Black- smith, who would have made a new key proba- bly for half a crown, and then he would have got possession by a much quicker process.— got Rule refused. Fortune Telling.—Joseph Powell, the cele- brated necromancer and false prophet, who has figured away and imposed Oil the public, by deluding the minds of the credulous of both sexes, was on Saturday, examined at Marfbo rough-street Police Ollice, on charge of ob- taining money under pretence of divining into futurity. His book of reference, after con suiting the planets, contained all the informa- tion necessary to set up prophet, and rivalled even the forebodings of either Johannah Southcotte or Parson I'owzer. — Here was a re ference to every card in the pack:; for instance, the ten of diamonds denoted marriage ace (if clults i letter ace of spades deathlive of clubs, a present eight of clubs, confusion five of spades, surprise; and the four of clubs, a gaol; which the prisoner was not enough to guard against. It also resolved dreams, and contained many letters from coun- try correspondents of both sexes, who bad only to send up their names, with au inclosure from Ss. 6d. to 10i. and agreeably to the sum paid, knowledge was obtained The prisoner confessed himself an hypocrite, and begged tor mercy; but the Magistrates observed a third offence of this nature constituted felony, for which the prisoner was committed. Expediency of raising Apple Trees from Kernels, without grafting. — A remar kah letine apple tree, of the nonpareil kind, grown from ,the kernel without ill the county of Salop, has produced an extraordinary crop of fruit, as appears by the following particulars This free was ill full leaf on the tOth of Nov. 1814, when the last portion of the fruit, above four-fifths of the whole, was gathered. It was transplanted at one year old, and the experi ment was not tried upon any other kernel plant.—Age of the Tree — probably 7, but not more than 8 years growth from the kernel.— Dimensions—ten feet high, including the shoots of the last season principal slemt-2 feet high, and 144 inches circumferenccal 1 foot from the ground. Fruit—some of t'he largest apples measured 10 inches in circumference, and one weighed more than 8 ounces 25 of the best gathered 10th Nov. weighed 10lb. al- though a few fine specimens of the fruit had been previously gathered.—Total number of apples 135—total weight 41 lb. 13 ounces.— average very nearly 5 ounces for each apple. Thequality of the fruit is in every respect like a fine nonpareil, and the wood and leaves of that species of apple.-SlIlopian Journal. Public Lighting by Gus—The commence ment of the present winter has been distin- guished in London by very general prepara tions for the introduction of gas lights.— Nearly the entire line of shops in the main streets, from Shoreditch Church, by St. Paul's to Westminster Abbey, a length of more than three miles, either is provided with pipes, or is in course of preparation. All experiment made on the street gas-lights and the street oil-lamps, proves thai one gas-lamp gives all intensity of light equal to thirty-oil laiiil)s.- It is aiso found that gas burned in Argaud's lamp equals two such lamps lighted with oil. In shops the advantages are, a white light nearly equal to day-light, a warmth which supersedes the se of fires, a total absence of smoke, smell, and vapour, and a great ecu nomy of labor and expense. It appears that every laml) consumes twenty gallons of gas an hour and that half a sack, or a hit ndred weight of coals, produces 250 hours consump- tion of one lamp, or five hours of fifty lamp. The coke produced in the distillation is worth about as much as the coal, and the tar, and ammonia equal the collateral expences so that the costs little, if any thing. Besides the origlllal company iu Westminster, which also has a station in Worship-street, Messrs. Grant, Knight, and Murdoch, have opened a new establishment in Water-lane, Fleet-street; and a third is projected 111 Southwark creat ing by a rivalry of interests that competition which is sure to accelerate this great discovery. It is said, that the New Company have con- tracts already for 1500 shop-lamps, 300 of which will be lighted this mouth and the ori- ginal Company have contracted to an equal extent, all at four pounds per annum, per lamp, at 3d a night. Some private establish- ments have provided apparatus for generating their own gas; but it is too large, and the process too operose for general introduction in that form; though Mr. Ackerman, of the Strand, has made the gas in his own house for three years past, and considers it a convenience above all price. It may be worth while to state, thai a gas light apparatus consists of a retort, in which the coal isdislilled of nwater- tub with a worm, through which the gas is cooled; of a vessel of lime water, by which it is deprived of all smell; and of a copper ga. someter, or cubic receptacle, inverted in water, for receiving the stock of gas. It may be, used at any distance to which there are pipes to convey it. The Militia Bill. -A circular letter has been addressed by Lord Sidmouth to the Officers commanding Regiments of Militia, which re- L main embodied. This circular conveys the opinion of the Attorney and Solicitor General on the legality of keeping the Militia, or any part of it,in the present circumstances in which the country is placed,-Lord Sidmouth (in his letter inclosing this opinion) says Although it is the unquestionable right of his Majesty to keep the Militia embodied, notwithstand- ing the termination of the war with France, it is nevertheless the Prince Regent's wish and intention to order the disembodying of the remaining regiments, to take place with as little delay as may be consistent with a due re- gard to the public safety and he trusts that until that period shall arrive, the conduct of the men will be marked by that steady atten- tion to their duty, and to the command of their officers, by which it has been uniformly dis- tinguished since they have been embodied. On Monday se'unight, a barge laden with brick, going down the river at Worcester, the men who had the management of her having occasion to go on shore, left only a boy on board, and moored the vessel to the shore, from which the wind and current drove her, and going rapidly down the stream, drifted against the battlements of the bridge, and sunk —lhe boy was rescued. And, on Tuesday, a salt barge going down the river, in consequence of the above barge lying across the channel, received so much damage in her bottom, by striking against the other barge, that, after passing through the bridge she sunk, but a considerable part of the cargo was saved.- And, on Wednesday, another vessel going down the river, striving to avoid the wreck of the first mentioned, drove against one of the piers of the bridge* and stove part of her side in; it was not without the greatest exertions thai this latter vessel could be kept afloat until hauled on shoise, for the unlading of her cargo.

A CHART OF CARNARVON BAR AND…
A CHART OF CARNARVON BAR AND HARBOUR. Directions for Ships and Vessels sailing into Car- narvon llarbour, over the tlar. In order to facilitate. the navigation of this Har- bour, two Buoys are placed Oil the Bar, the outer one is painted black, and thc inner red; a Perch is also erected on the Bank, called the Muscle Bank. liL-ANiinwyn Point lies about 2 miles distance from the hlack Buo), (which is moored in the en- trance of the Bar, in about 15 feet water, at low water, average spring tides) in a N. by E direc- tioll. Dinas Dislle lies from three, or from that to three and a half miles distance from the black Buoy, in a S. K. direction. The black Buoy ties about one mile distance from the red Buoy, ;a a S. W. by S. direction. The red Buoy lies about tw,), or from that to two and a quarter miles distance from the Perch, iu a W. by N. direction. The Perch lies near one mile distance from Abermenai. iu a west direc- tion, where ships and vessels may anchor in safety. Masters of vessels, drawing 12 feet water and upwards, should not (iu a gale of wind) approach this Bar until l'otii- hours flood. All vessels coming in, should leave the Perch on the larboard hand. High water at full and change, at a quarter af- ter nine o'clock—average spring tides rise and fall on the Bar from 16 to IS feet—neap ditto from 6 to 8 t'eet. Expert Pilots may always be had on making the proper signal. This Harbour has been lately considerably en- Jarged and improved, a great number of large ves- sels are buitt here annually-it is a most conve- nient place for repairing of old vessels—there is an extensive trade carried on in the exportation of slates (of the best quality) and other articles, to most parts of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and consists of convenient quays and wharfs, for the reception and safety of sh ps and vessels loading and unloading, or lying within the limits of this port. The Trustees of this Harbour have expended from four to live hundred pounds inptasting some of the rocks at the Swillies, to low water mark, which ias rendered a most free passage for ships and vessels of large burthen, coming from the eas-ward to this Harbour, or sailing through the Straits of Menai. jj^r The north and south hanks of this Bar are subject to shift-when they do shift, or the Btioyg part from their moorings, proper care will be taken to moor Buoys in the deep, as at present, and the true bearings, distances, &c. of them, in- serted in this paper BANGOR: Printed and Published by J, Brosler.

COURT OF KING'S BENCH.
COURT OF KING'S BENCH. rTythes of Timber.—-FORD V. RACSTER. Mr. ttals was an action for lythes, and was fried before Mr. Justice Dallas, at j Hereford. He had now to apply to their j Lordships for a rule to shew cause why so much of the verdict as related to the setting | out of tythes mentioned in the three first I counts should not be set aside, and a verdict | on those counts entered for the defendant.— I The question in this case respected the tylhe < of timber. It was an action brought by the f representatives of the late Dr. Ferd, Rector jj ofCraiUey; and the question was, whether I timber growing in a coppice of 60 years growth should be-subject to tythes. In the present it appeared the defendant was possessed of about 150 acres of underwood, of i which 10 acres were cut anuuallyj the whole ? therefore came down once in 15 years and a jj composition had constantly been paid for I tythes. From the stubs of underwood, how-I ever, timber trees (oak) had been suffered to spring, some of which were not cut till they were of 75 years growth otlici-i were cut at I 60, hut none under 45 years. The question now was, whether these trees were to be the subject of vthes- Mr. Jervis now contended, that under the Act 45 Edw. Ill. c. 3, for the regulation of timber aud underwood, they t', were not. In support of this doctrine the Learned Counsel cited the cases of Walton and Tryou, 2 William, p. 827 Soby v. Mul- len, 1 Wilian, 13S.; and Lord Coke's opinion, as laid down in 2 Institute, 642, and 643. Mr. Jervis also cited Lord Hard wick's opiuuon, as laid .down 11: the case of Green away, v. the Earl of Kent; in which that Noble-Lord said, it might as well bd contended that a man of 21 should he considered an infant-as that trees of 20 jearsgrowth should ke considered -as coppice. The Court granted a rule to shew cause, Nov, 17.—The Attorney-General prayed the judgment of the Court upba Stephen Haynes and Wm. Racey, the first of whom hà been found guilty at the last Stafford As- sizes, before Mr. J. Dallas, and the second had suffered Judgment by default, to prose- cutions upon the statute against obtaining money under false pretences. The defendants were both excise-officers, and had overcharged persons who were subject to duties more than they had actually paid to the .collectors.- The Court sentenced them to seven years transportation.
