The King's disorder continues unabated, but his Majesty has passed the last month iu a very tranquil state. On the 22d ult. the brig Elizabeth, of Pwll- hely, Richard Williams, master, fromLlanclly to Cork, was wrecked near Kiusale-crew saved. Boaumarls.-Last week the hearts of num- bers in this place and its vicinity, were truly gladdened by Lord Bulkeley's annual donation of coal, &c. &c. What a blessing it is to pos- sess the ability, and, at the same time, the dis- position of doing good. How rarely, do we see these talents united in the same person Teach me what all believe, but few possess, That life's best science is ourselves to know, The first of human blessings is to bless, And happiest he who feels another's woe. Caution. -Yesterday, Lowry the wife of W. Jones, of Genliech fain, in the parish of Llau- beblig, in this C-outityt was filled by the Rev. Henry Jones, Clerk, one of his Majesty's Jus- tices of the Peace, in the sum of 6s. with full costs, for cutting down hazel trees upon Glan- raloa Demesue, the property of Mils Williams. On Monday last a Town Meeting was field I by the inhabitants of Carnarvon, at the Guild- hall, Richard Garnons, Esq. in the Chair, for the purpose of establishing a Commercial and Marine School. It will be seen by the resolu- tions, (vide advt. in 2d page) that subscriptions are solicited to carry into effect an Institution, so much and so long wanted, which must pro. mote, not only the future welfare and educa- tion of the youth of Carnarvon, but ultimate- ly by its example of the more distant parts of the priticipality-We sincerely hope, and in- deed have no doubt, but that a fund amply sufficient, will be speedily raised, for a pur- pose so truly laudable and patriotic. A Dublin Paper says, that Lord Castlereagh has exacted from the Ministry of Louis the 18th, an engagement that the Irish brigade shall never be revived in the French army. As some compensation for the gallant exer- tions of our oldiers, Government are proceed- ing to collect together the spoils of the differ- ent campaigns; or, in other words, the plun- der taken from the enemy during the w-,ir.- Eleven hundred and forty pieces of ordnance are to be melted down, and soid. It is calcu- lated that the whole produce will be about six hundred thousand pounds. Itemed'y for Smokey Chimnies.A large bladder, tilled with air, suspended about half way up the chimney by a piece of string at- tached to a stick, and placed across a hoop which may be easily fastened by liails, win, it is said, prevent the disagreeable effects of a smokey chimney. Many of the English visitors of Iarge. for, tune, now in France, have left their splendid houses in this country shut up, to avoid pay. ment of poors' rates and taxes. In the case in which Ffreneh aad Co. were parties, tliere has been a verdict in favour of the firm, after a trial of six days, in the Court of King's Bench, Ireland. The Bank of England having issued aquan- lify of Tokens, which has been judged suffici- ent for circulation, and possessing also a large number in stores, Government have it in con- templation to c»il in immediately all the old silver coin, which must now be much depreci- ated in value from its long wear. On Friday night Temple Bar made a most brilliant appearance, being lighted up for the first time with Gas Li-ii t. An extraordinary instance of active indus- try lately occurred at Carnarvon:—The sloop Queen Charlotte, of that port, Hugh1 Williams, master, sailed from Beaumaris oil the 20lh of last month, bound for Liverpool, with a cargo of slates, where lie arrived, discharged his car- go, and took in another of coals and goods, with which he returned to Carnarvon on the 24th This will appear the more singular, when it is known that another vessel, belong- ing to the same port, has been upwards of three months in making a tnp to Chester and back The quantity of rain fallen during tlte mouth is equal to full 4 £ inches in depth. This nioiilh there has been more rain and high winds than have been known for some years. The average height of the Barometer is only 29-338, which will fully account for lhelargc quantity of rain fallen. Although we have had some severe days, yet the last nine days have been unusually warm, and the verage height of the Thermometer for the whole month, is cqti-iii to 41° exactly. The wind has been chiefly in the South and Westerly points of the compass. The number of bril- liant days, seven; of rainy, seventeeu; and three have been very foggy. The owners and occupiers of land in differ- ent parts of the country seem to be rotted by the contiuued ami iucreusing depression in the price ot their produce, and are adopting' llie measure of petitioning Parliament. At lioys- ton, in Cambridgeshire, and in several parts of Norfolk, petitions are in the course of sig- nature, expressing in respectful but strpn" terms ttieir inabtiHy to meet the continued burthen of taxes, and other necessary expen- ces, with the produce of their depreciated com- modities and craving relief, in such way as thelegislatui-e iiity in its wisdom deem proper. Lord Howe, whilst Admiral of the Channel Fleet, was at one time so unpopular in thi- Navy. from hit supposed shyness, that the Of- ficers of his own shjp dcciincd to drink his health at their mess. This was a source of mortification to the Chaplain a protegee of his Lordship's, who took the ingenious mode of doing it in the following way. e When called upon for a toast, he s:tid-l" if you please, Gentlemen, I'll give you the two jirsl words oj the third Psalm," which was immediately drank. On referring to tiie book, it was dis- covered that the words were LORD How." After the glorious first «>f June, the above was the favourite toast throughout the Navy. Chimnies.-In 1200 they were scarcely known in England, poue only was allowed in a religious house, one in a manor ditto, one, in the great hall of a castle, or a Lord's house— but in Gentlemen's houses of large fortune, they had nothing but what was called Here Dosse, that is a raised back in their harli where their food was dressed, where they dined, and the smoke found its way out as it could. 111 King Henry the Eighth's time the University at Oxford had no fires allowed, for it is men- tioned that after the Students had supped, which took place at eight o'clock, they went again to their studies till nine: and then in the winter, they having no fire, they were ob. liged to take a good run for half an hour, to b gel heat in their feet before they weut to bed.

Mr. Rose, for the poor Protestant Fami- lies-and 501. to the Rev. Mr. Marnane for the Catholic Poor, and subscribed 201. per an- num to the Dispensary. Industry and Sobt,iely.-Wiiat mny be ef- fected by honest industry and sobriety, is strongly exemplified in the instance of a man and his wife of the name of Sykes, of Ingold- mells; they have nineteeu children now liv- ing, all of whom dined together in the month of May last they have brought them all np reputably, without ever receiving any assist- ance from the parish the husband occupies a few acres of land, and goes out to day-labour. Boston Gazette, Lincolnshire. The estate for which Government are in treaty for the Duke of Wellington, is that of Sir George Bowyer, Bart. situated about 15 miles from Oxford. The mansion, which is venerable from its antiquity, has attached to it a park of about 1,300 acres; and other grounds occupying about 1,700 acres more.— The old house will be pulled down, and one erected in its stead, which will be a chef d'oeuvrc in every respect. It will he begun in the Spring the Grecian Order, it is said, will be adopted in preference to every other. A horrible transaction was developed at the late Assizes at Bauvais, in France. A young man, of 22 years of age, was convicted of as- sassinating, at different periods, his two young brothers, and a sistcr, a child lwtwcen lwo and three years old. From whatever cause, whe- ther menial derangement, or the inslillation of bad principles, he alleged he could insure his young brothers at) aiiii jissioi) into Heaven, if removed from life before the age of seven. He was condemned to death. We have much pleasure in stating, that John Livesey, Esq. of Stonrtod-hall, in Lincoln- shire, has, in consideration of the extreme pressure of thctimes, signified his intention of reducing the rents of his tenants one-third.— This measure on the part of the landlord, and the public acknowledgment of his tenants,are highly honourable to both parties. We have heard that some other of the principal land lords in this neighbourhood have made a ma- terial reduction in the rents of their tenant*. The situation of many of the farmers, from the above-stated cause is such, we understand, that unless they receive similar indulgence from their landlords, it will be hardly possible for them to weather the sturin.-Bosion Ga- zette. The brig Industry, of Biddeford, Sharpson, master, in the transport service from Cork to Dublin, is on shore in Holyhead bay, opposite Penrhos. and full of water. The cargo con- sists of King's stores and soldier's baggage.— There were on board several soldiers with their wives and families in great distress and peril, but as soon as it was practicable to afford them any relief, Lady Stanley, with that prompt hu- iminily which uniformly characterizes her Ladyship, sent carts to relieve the unfortunate liulIerels and brought them to her own house, where they met with that kind treatment that lheirdistressed situation rcquircd.Same even. ing a galliot from Ireland to Liverpool, with cattle on board, ran on shore to leeward of the harbour and was bilged. Some of the cattle are drtixiied.-It is apprehended that neillicr of the two vessell1 will he saved. On Thursday last, Wm. Chappie and Au gusta Ratcliffe, two notorious old ring drop pers, who have been upon thè town for nearly forty years, and who were companions of the celebrated Barrington, were charged at Queen Square Office, with conspiring to defraud a Kentish farmer of the name of Cork. They picked up Mr. Cork in the Strand on Wednes- day evening, and having got into conversa- tion, they retired to a public-house; and after having been together some time they induced Mr. C. to bet that he could produce £ 50 in the course of a few hours, they having pro- duced handflllofnew notes. Mr. C. suspect- ing the trick they were endeavouring to play off acquiesced in all they proposed and pre- tend to go to a brother to get d £ 50.—Mr. C. leTt them, I't)r a short lime, when he took the precaution of procuring the assistance of two Police officers. On their return thev re cognised the prisoners, andinstanlly took them into custo(ty; when on examining them, in their possession some hundreds of Fleet and such like notes were found. Committed for further examination. The Mill belonging to Mr. Parton, situate at Tenterden, iu Kent, has of late beeu seve- ral times, robbed of quantities of flour, &c.- On Friday the 30th ult. Pardon and his grinder r-ei-c deteriiiiiied to lay wait for the miscreants, and secreted themselves in the Mill for that purpose, armed. About twelve o'clock three men entered the Mill, it is sup posed by false keys, and were in the act of filling their s icks with flour from the trough, when they espied Parton and his whom they attacked, and a desperate conflictensued. Parton attempted to fire his pistol at one of the robbers, but unfortunately it missed; the robber then knocked Parlon down, and at- tempted, with an instrument, to put out his eyes; the grinder seeing his master in that pe- riiotis situation, gave the robber a severe cut across the legs with his sabre another came up, knocked the grinder down, and attempted to take the sabre from him, but in the act he cut off two of the robber's fingers. The grinder getting up, found his 'Master in the same situation, with the robber upon him, whom he immediately fired at—the COIlents of the pistol lodged in his body the other two then made their escape. The robber who was shot, whose name was Hart, they con- veyed to Tenterden town, for surgical assis- tance, but he died in about eight hours be- fore he expired, he disclosed the names of his accomplices, Brignal and Page, with others, amounting to eight in number, and from the great exertions now making, there is every reason to hope they will be brought to con- dign punishment. t, At a sale of Farming Stock in Gloucester- shire, some time since, the Auctioneer gave e, the following extempore description of a beau- -tiful cow Long in her sides-bright in her eyes, Short in her legs-thin in her thighs, Big in her ribs-wide in her pins, Full in her bosom-small in her shins, Long in her face-fine in her tail, And never deficient-ill filling the pail.
