At the same meeting the half yearly public examination of the chiidren at the Central School, Baldwin's gardens, Cray's- i tin- lane, was fixed for the. 6th inst. at one o'clock. Female Uniform. — The Grand Duchess and the Margravine of Baden have taken upon themselves to attempt what no mortal has yet been able to achieve—a regulation of dress for ladies. They propose what they call a national costume, con- sisting of a white robe of any materials, except velvet or satin, and a g-irdle of red velvet, with a straight border esnbroidered in gold, the two extremities of which, fringed with gold, are to meet on the left side. The head-dress, from which feathers and flowers are banished, is to consist of a ribbon of red silh-, or velvet, with a gold border, passed into the hair. In tliisd-ress, the Duchess and Margravine say they shall ap- pear at the opening of a new Museum, where it is intended to hold public sittings; and they pro- mise themselves, "that the uniformity and noble simplicity of this dress will have the happiest, influence, especially.at balls." To this which is announced" without any idea of con- straint," the Ladies of Carlstuhe, and scveial places in the neighbourhood, have given their consent. Bole-street.—Yesterday Charles Weller, late mail-coach guard, was charged with robbing the coach from Newport, near Monmouth, of a par- cel, containing upwards of 2,3001. in Cash, bank- notes, and bills, and Jane Hickman was charged with being concerned with him in the robbery.— It apeared, that as long since as October, 1813, a parce! containing the above amount was sent from the Newport bank of Foreman, Fothergill, allrl Co- The notes and cash were in a paper parcel, which was put into a wooden box the parcel directeti to Downes, Thornton, and Co bankers, Bartholomew lane, and the box was directed to Mr. Fothergill, at Messrs Shee's mer- chants, Lawrence Pountney- lane, Cannon-street; and to give the appearance of a parcel it was co- vered with canvas. The box was secured by King's Head, Newport, to -o by the man. It reached Mr. Fothergill, as directed. On opening it, it only contained a letter. A witness stated, that the prisoner had confessed being concerned in the robbery, and that he was instigated to it by an old woman. After the robbery was committed he endeavoured to get the parcel back, when (here was only 201. taken out of it, but Jane Hickman would not let him. The prisoners have lately b,een taken into custody, in consequence of some notes in the stolen parcel having been pas- sed at shops in Londou, for goods, and which were yesterday identified as part of the stolen property. Committed -r rc-cvamination.
(FROM THE ttllHMMl MERCURY.) From the very beginning there have been two opinlOlh concernilJg tle manner of disposing 01 SaAony and Poland, which would be most con- ducive to tile general good. Some believe that Poland must remain divided lor that ihe safety of Kurope would be endangered, if that country, so powerful by its resources, and by ihe warlike spirit of its inhabitants, should be placed under the prolecli.moof Russia, and its King become a vassal of thai gigantic Faiipire. They point to the map, ana shew the enormous mass which presses upon Europe from the East; they shew the great forelands ami Islauds which branch oui from its sour;e, that eastern Sclavonian Em- pire into Bohemia, and southwards into the Ger man soil, and the possibility that if that. last in- termediate kingdom vanishes, nil will coalesce in one prodigious mass, which will prepare the ruin ol Ger:cmiy. i'luMCiore, say they Voiari(I must remaiu,:as far..as possible, subject to Germany, which will then bs spared the injustice of swal- lowing up Saxony. fiie other party maintain, It is not so.— What you wish to prevent hy this division you will rather promote by it. A spirit of unity has arisen in Polaufl, a love of independence, which so many years of misery and shame, far from weakening, have strengthened and confirmed.- Would you tear ill piece this hody so full of life: its bleeding and convulsed members, in which you cannot smother the vital spark, will grow together again, and before you are aware of it, the wound wilt be closed. At the slighesf move- ment in Europe the thirst of independence will he then removed; the East will take advantage of the spirit ol discontent, the West will build plans upon it, and eventually the very thing will happen which you in your wisdom think to pre- vent. The partition of Poland was the first youthful sin of th:s age it has siuce indeed grown grey ill sin but let. us not. suffer the new era which is now beginning to take on itself 'he crimes of its predecessor—we must go back to the root of the evil, io make a perfect cure possible. Let Po- land have a Russian Prince if you will; before two generations arc passed he wiil be himself a ilole, and enter into ait the interests of the country to which he is attached. This will hap- pen sooner if lie is a constitutIOnal King, limited spirit of ti)e cotiiitry, That the Sclavonian nation should hold together is natu- ral. and we cannot silence this natural impulse by our jealousy; hut what we can do is not to he •guilty of injustice towards them, that those who are free may not become our enemies, and those who areunller the yoke revolt against us.— t 1'ruly there is nothing else to guide us oat of the iabyrinth in which we are, than after the plain old fashion as we Germans have been used to do, to give and take what is strictly just, and to consider that as often as we have been misled by coveiousness and greediness, to pass the just, bounds, punishment has never failed to foltow.- (f Polattdelltains divided Prussia will be a se- cured Sclavonian German State, without any na- tural bond of infernal union, as Austria has un- happily been since the Goths went to remote countries, and the Huns and Scalvonians took their places. How can Prussia cover the eastern frontier of Germany with the one discontented half of a Sclavonian nation against the other half, inviting it from beyond the Vistula, united with the friendly nations to the East? No, the North must be on that frontier as an nncompounded German power, and to this end it is necessary that Saxony should be more nearly connected with it. There is nothing unjust in this union: the King of the country set his fate on the point of his sworu and was overcome in fair open combat, even against his own people. He has saved his lile, because he knew not how to die: but the crown must he lost to him, because the judgment ot the gods has been against him. But ihe conqueror's possession, to be legal, must be founded on a convention with the peo- pie, the conditions of which must be settled by common consent. So it has been done in Nor- way, where the weakness of the chiefs was over- come by stealagclD, and the nation secures its rights at the Diet. The same must he done 10 Italy also, if any good is to be produced there. W here also victoryhas espelied the foreign usur- pers, the dominion is fallen to the victors but the new Princes can reign only by a formal con- tract, and the new dominion of a foreign race can be founded only on the consent of the people — The booty in money and effects may be divided by the law of force but nations solely according to justice; and to theirconduct solemnly given. Prussia has therefore a rizilt to insist on the unity of Poland and the incorporation of Saxony; the honour of Germany demands the one, its wel- i fare, its security, imperiously demand theother; and fhose who counsel otherwise, are either cou- founded by the cunning of France, or gained over toit.by their self-interest. But he who is with France is against Germany, and undone in the public opinion. The decision of England which seems to be expected may turn out as it will, Germany must know what is becoming and advantageous for it, and iinmoveably aMde by what it has once recog- nised to be for the best. fl AN o v L, n.-( a German Joiirnal. Pe- fore the French tooic possession of Hanover, it passed for one of the happiest countries of Ger- many; and in many respects it certainly was so. Throughout the whole territory, though by no means iiatually nne of the richest, a certain de- gree of substantial comfort was visible. The people were neither oppressed by severe faxes, nor excessive recruiting, nor extortions in the administration of justice. The servants of the Government were well paid, and they laboured faithfully, and seemed devoted with their whole heart to iheii country and their king. The Go- vernment and those iu its employ were distin- guished for a reat ctealof uprightness, in the true sense, of the word,-and excited a well-ground- ed cc nritlen e both within and without, their do- minio,Il., The connexion with England was ad- vantageous, to the country in many respects, as in the lare turbulent times it was to Germany iu general for Hanover, with its university, was the bridge for the passage of many a practical and sciènrifiè benefit from England, and the head1 quarters of opposition to French principles.— The uprightness and the orderly infernal ma- nagement of which we have spoken, were princi- pally owing to this circumstance, that the Sove reign was not under the necessity of requiring any excessive exactions from hir. subjects. In a word, at a period when the most contemptible trilling, or the keeping-tip of overstrained and disproportionate establishments, convulsed al- most all the greater and smaller states of Ger- many, Hanover was distinguished for its orderly and cotittnit-ed internal condition.
FRENCH MANNERS; OR, A-JOUTINr,,Y IN A DILIGENCE. From taste as well as economy, I dislike travelling inaposl chaise, where the company in general consists only of a servant, to whom one has nothing lo say, or a travelling com- panion who sleeps three fourths of the time. I have sometimes amused myseif by chattering with the postillion: but besides the inconve- nientsituatiouof the interlocutors, and the noise of the chaise which causes three or four repetitions of the same question and answer, oneMen gets acquainted with the names of tlpe lie i-oid, and with those of the travellers of distinction who passed it dur- ing the same week. But A diligence, well loaded, and well tilled, i-s a liltfe amhutatint; town, with its different divisions, its police, and even its dramatic performances; its popu lation. indeed, scarcely exceeds 30 individuals, including postillions and thedomesticanimals, in ihe suite of the passengers; but its popu- lation has its laws, its prejudices, its ranks, and its customs. Tne interior is the quarter inhabited by the beau monde it is the Fnu bourg Saint Gerniain of the diligence; the cabriolet is the Marais, and the imperiale the Cite. I will pass ligbi ly over the preparations f[¡r t heÎ-mrnc:of \vh it h I recollect ttiy pre- decessor the Hermit of the Chaussee d' Antin. gave las? year a very exact description. Al- ready the parcels, trunks, portmanteaus, and boxes of every description were weighed, and placed according to their weight in killogram ires, either in the buoi or oil the top of the t oach already Ihe driver, with his hook in hi!! hand, ca:¡¡e to summon (he passengers; one only was wanting; he was a soldier: uo inatter 12 o'clock had struck. This was the moment for last adieus; nothing was to be heard but Write to me God bless you do not forget my commissions; remember me tv your family embrace my children, 1 wish you u pleasant journey." We were now driving through Ihe streets in the midst of a fine night, Ihe calm of which, was only troubled by the noise of the wheels of our diligence, which shook all the houses on its wa). The profound silence which reigued during I he first hour, was only interrupted by a t-I few yawnings and sighs from my travelling com- panions, whose features in vain attempted to discern by the fugitive light of the reverberat- Ing- lamps of the coach. All I could discover was, tbat I had near me a great elastic and snoring mass, which kept "le closely confined to my corner. I could fall on no oiher means of preserving thefaculty of respiration than by opposing the resistance of my elbow, against the pressure which my neighbour imposed upon me, the pom¡ of he elliptical thus rest- ing against his I i'll, tl:liik, ti) which the play of his lungs ga ve > developem ni, occasioned him frequently to suspend his noisy slumber in order to say to me—" Monsieur, your el how incommodes me." To which 1 content- ed myself with rep!ying-" .Monsieur. your wiioja body incommodes me." 1 should have been a long time discovering what it was that hindered extension of my legs, if one, I ss patient than myself, had not stretched out his so suddenly, that the result wasa barking and a bile oti a leg. which appeared to me to belong to an Englishman, it I nrghi judge by the expressive f> od damn with which he ac Compaiiied a second kick directed against the animal, whose cries instantly aw keued his mistress. She, in a feeble squeaking voice, upbraided'tiie assailant with the epithets of uncivil, hrulallellow The Englishman, an- t, -an, swered, that the dog had no right to enter the carriage. The lady said, she had paid f ;r her dear little creature but, yet, to end the (itiar- rel, and to protect her dog from the attacks of the stranger, site took it on her lap, where it sat very quietly, without, however, being any the more innocently employed, as I will soon have occasion lo show. This little noc- c- turnal scene provoked continual bursts of laughter, some of which procepdefi from the month of a female whom I supp- sed young and handsome, without well knowing why the lovely rieuse, separated from me by my op. pressor, had some cue opposite her whose head, yielding folhe jolliug of the coach, came naturally in contact with her's, without eilher of them seeming displeased with 'he rencontre. What a sublime, what anllflposing picture is the rising of the sun on the shore of the sea, in an extensive aud beautiful coanlry but. on the contrary, It forms a very grotesque spec- tacle in a diligence; the first rays of Aurora t' striding tipull ttio passengers, shew such strange, such comic, such burlesqnely accout- red figures after a night's journey the senti- menls of surprise and curiosity are painted on their countenance in a manner so comical, as not to he exceeded by the most exlravagant imagination. The female who sat opposite to me, and who had on her knees a lap dog,must have entered her fortieth year, as well as I could judge from her figure, halfhidden under a black velvet bonnet, ornamented with fea- thers which appeared as if they had once been white. Perceiving a very large work-bag suspended at her arm, with some manuscripts out, and hearing her hum some airs out of comic operas, I supposed her to be a provincial performer, nor did 1 mistake. The Englishman, wrapped up in a great coat so < thick as a his, head covered with a i travelling cap,from time to time put his hand 4 to his leg which the dog had bitten, looked out at the country, whistling, and swallowed j some mouthfuls of rum, with which he had S taken care to provide himstdt in a leathern flask- It was in vain that the fa I man tried j his generosity by praising that excellent habit of takiii- itk the morning seme ronaforling j liquor, while travelling; the Englishman took ? another draught, and put the Bask into his pocket. The young man who was in the otiier corner, in the fi-oil t of the coach, did nnt once take his eyes oft" the young girl who sat, opposite to him, and whose charming figure » ■even surpassed the idea 1 had formed of her. » By the pains he took to puil his hat over his | eyes, one might suppose he did not take so j mtjcli pleasure as we did in ti,,tiii beliolditi, day-light. We stopped for breakfast: every one alighted, and I saw for the first time, my compauionsof the fauxbourgs of the diligence., 1 The hussar had already made acquaintance, in í, the cabriolet, with a fat and fresh colon red | nurse, who had been to Paris to return her I charge. The travellers roosled on the Impe- rial were in a great hurry to get down one of them, either through haste, or to show his agility, disdaining to make use oflhe ladder, wished to jump off, but took his measures so j badiy, that his foot catching on the wheel, in order to save himself, he causrht hold of Ili. firsllhing which came to his hand this hap. peucd to be, by chance, the collar of our Eng- lishman's great coat, who was thelasl to come out ol the diligence, and who, dragged alon«- with the inhabitant of the imperial in his falf, accompanied him in rolling on a dunghill, near which the coach had stopped. Every one laughed at the adventure the gaielyof the spectators excited the choler of the unfor- tunate travellers. The Englishman getting up, made use of a terrible God damn I The Provelical swore by the Iron tie Dieul which he articulated no lesj energetically, accompa- nying it with a menace, which the former an- swered by a vigorous blow, ihe return of which he awaited in ihe attitude of a boxer. The inhabitant of Marseilles, little versed in the beaux arts of ihe banks of the Thames, seized hold of the handle of- a pitch fork, by the aid of which he,would infallibly have done for his adversary, had he not heard the fat man cry out with all his strength, from Ihe diligence, where he had slopped to breakfast, Give it him well They have taken from me two vessels without declaration of war avenge our colonies on the back of that fel low we" however, soon separated them. — We were there witnesses of a conjugal recog- nizance between the lady with the iittle dog, and all inhabitant of the imperiale: this tender couple, boili provincial performers, now met, after a separation of twehe years, and rejoic- ed, in a very awkward manner, at the chance which had made them contract, each without the knowledge of the other, an engagement at the same Theatre. The explanation which had commenced, promised usa scene extreme- ly comic; it was interrupted, however, by a complaint which the fat Gentleman laid be- fore the Duenna. It appeared, that he had piaced in one of the pockets of the diligence, half of a fowl, on which he had intended to have breakfasted. Unluckily the Lady's dog had snuffed out the provisions during the night, and as he was placed on the knees of his mis- tress, just at the height of file cupboard, he had taken the advanlage of his position to make an excellent supper, at the expence of this merchant, This incident, which very much amused us during the breakfast, brought however, again into question the right of Ihe dog to the place which he occupied in the coach; and having heard each party, the driver decided that tiie dog should be deliver, eJ to the care of the husband of the actress' and that he should finish his journey on the imperiale. ..M
Agriculturists' Remembrancer for December. Tliresliijig miist be assiduously continued this month, that the caitle may have straw both for food and beds—the worst aw should be thresh- edouI first, and the best last, proceeding upon ti 1) 1) 1) the same gradation through the winter, dial every change of straw may he for the better. Wheat, on this should he. threshed out first, as it makes the worst fodder—next oats, then barley, arId b st oats and barley that had clover sown.wkh them, for in ,thewet seasons the clover rises so high, that the straw is almost as good as hay The farm-yard must now lie carefully su perintended-Ihe yard,stalls,stables, cow-houses, hog-sties, poultry-,houses,&c. must be plentifully littered. With a little management at! the urine may be preserved, and a ht'ap of turf, &c. should be placed to absorb it-manure is the great wealth of the farmer—without an abundance of it, all his efforts are vain. Lays should now be ploughed up during the wet wea her, when the grass land turns up in clean well-cut furrows; p O ilbing worn out grass lands, and manuring witli marl or J.un«>sion.e ground, is esteemed by some good husbandi y. Paring and burning should be judiciously applied —the roots of grass and weeds carefully harrowed out of the ground, are the chief food of the fire —burning the soil itself to any extent contributes to impoverish the ground. Young says, that the great profit to he derived I from swine, is ther dung—the styes should there fore be abundantly littered. Warm food is re- 1 commended by many as conducive fo their fat-i teiiing, the experiment, at all events^ is a safe j one, I II 1prs and ditchers should be kept close to work all inohth. New ditches may be begun now, but not finished till spring, when the frost are over. This is also the proper season for Draining—every farmer should now inspect his grounds, and observe where the water settles,and mark the spots a( -(!tira tel y.-D rain- should now be opened, and sewers made carefully. Manures of all kinds should, now. be IIII and turned, so as to bi- ready to put out when the frost sets in, par- ticuiar'y in soft grounds. s Ploughing should be continued whenever the wea'her will permit, so as to have all done, if possible, before the frost and snow sets in, which tends very much to enrich aud pulverise the eartli when ploughed. All wet grounds should be thrown into high ridges, and the intervals swept with fhe plough, to let the water run off freely. | Some farmers sow wheat at this season, hut the practice is esteemed a bad one. Vegetaliora has now ceased—the ground is wet and cold, anil frequently perishes the seed. The sowing of the ground now intended for wheat, may perhaps., with greater hopes of fuccess, be postponed till February. COURT OF COMMON PLFAS.-jUagney v. Bar- leigh.—Thiswasan action brought to recover sixty guineas, the price paid for a horse alleg- cd to be unsound. The plaintIff. after having purchased the horse from the defandant, sold li to h Mr. Christopher, who returned it as unsound, being what is called a crib biter.r— The plaintiff then returned it to Hie defendant* and brought his action. On the part ol the plaintiff a number of witnesses were called, who stated, that in their judgment, this crib- hiting. or biting the manger, was a great im- verferl ion iu a horse; some oftheUl conceivetl that it was a sign of bad lungs, and that it ended in the horse becoming broken winded. One of them even conceived that a crib-h)t.in<r horse must have bis lungs differently placed from what they were in a sound horse. Two witnesses mentioned, that a crib-biting horse wasted more of his oats than another horse. and coosequPfllly did not receive the same nu. triment from his food. One witness, how- ever, allowed that he had horses of that de. scription which never had got broken wind- ed. Others confessed that this was someltmea only a trick or habrt of a horse, without any unsoundness discoverable in any other way.- There being no farther proof as to the un- soundness of the horse than this habit of biting the manger, and one of the Jurors having ex- pressed a doiib,, iii which his Lordship ap- peared 10 coincide, of such proof being suffi- cient to establish the unsoundness, the counsels for the defendant were not called on to ,o into their case, and the plaintiff was non-suited. In an action to recover 125/. for molasses sold to a brewer, the defence set up was, that by act of Parliament, no brewer shall mix Molasses with beer,aud that the plaintiff k.icw that the defendant purchased them for that purpose; and that by another act of Parlia- ment the seller forfeits 5001 -The Judgment was, as the plilltitfaded illegally iu selling, he could not recover. COURT OF KIJTG'S BENCH.—Question of Set- tlement.—Two Justices, by an order, removed George Smith, his wife: and two children, from ihe parish of Sniehurst, in the county of Sussex, to the parish of BiHinghnrst, in Ihe sanie coiitity. The, on Coll- firmed the order, subject to the opinIOn III the Court, on the following case The paimer, whose baptismal aud real name is Abraham Langley, and whose legal scilleineiit is in Bit-- linghursi, was marhed to his present wife in the parish of Lamberhurst, by bans, about: four years i,o, i)y the name of George Smiths previous to the marriage, he had resided about three years at Lamberhurst aforesaid, and dur- ing all the time he remained there, and after- wards,'until and at (he time of his removal, was !1()WII by the name of George Smith only. The wile and children have ni> settlement in Billinghurst, unless they have acquired one under the marriage. The question hinged upon the single point, whether the marriage could be legal which was solemuized under 811 assumed tiaii,e ? and milch controversial argu- ment and many legal quotations of cases, from the Ecclesiastical as well as Ihe Civil Courts, were adduced and one of the Counsel agaiusb the legality of the marriage said, the real cause of the present pauper changing his (lame was, that he had another wife at another place r The Court said we cannot notice that, it it not stated in the case.

The question was, whether there had been a due notification by the uiinisler oft a Sunday of the person married by the name by which he- was known; and it was proved that the pauper had been always known by no other lIame than that in which the bans had been published viz for three years prior to the marriage, and four years since, up '0 the present lime, it would be a perilous thing, if in every case an enquiry were to be institui- ed, whether the name ol the inar- riage were his baptismal one aid if tomea were to he declared unmarried, aud children illegitimate, because at the period of a mail,* baptism il were discovered that he received fhat office of the church by another name thall tilat which he had borne all his life. If the pauper's bans had been published by the name of Abraham Langley, thai would havet beeii a deception and a parent's attention would not be drawn by such t) name, applying, as it did to nobody known in the parish. Mr. J. Le Blanc and Ms. J. Bayley concurred.-—. Order of Sessions confirmed. A point of Law came out, in the pleadings I 'on this case, which is of coris»quence to the Community* I he Rubric says ihe bans must be published in the Church three several Sun. days or Holidays. A couple were married by bans published two several Sundays and hrist- mas Day. The marnsge was illegal becanse- in the Act of Pal-Iiiiii oto the word Ijofidav is omitted. It likewise appeared on the au- thority of Lord C(;l\e,i¡¡c!.J lhe Çoullscl qllu-t. ed, that it is held in common law thai though a man's Surnanie may be chauged, his Thrisdan name camioti escept at COlljirmotion: Bap. tismal uaOJes can then only be changed. What a pity that Mr. Shandy did not know this, when lie was agon zing under the fatal mis- take of the maid and ti e curate, who substi- tuted Tristram for Tiismegistus, and which all the of the assembled Clergy of his dsocese would not tell him how to jepiify.
