i £ DIN BURGH. CONVEYANCE OF PARCELS BY THE MAIL COACH. A case of very material importance to the public has just occurred. A gentleman'having wisHed a parcel containing 2001. sent from a remote quarter of the country, wrote to his factor to knotv the occasion of it, and having been informctl that it had been forwarded by the mltil irotii iu-;< iEdinburgh, he im il,Cdiately itistittited an enquiry at the coach office here-, and being unable to obtain any satisfactory information from the clerks of the office, he found himself underthe necessity of summoning the loriticil)als before the Police Office, when the following examination took I)Iace Mr. Phillips wits called upon first to pro- i duce the way-biJ! of Ihe day on which the parcel should have arrived. He produced an extract; but, on feeing told that the bill itself j was absolutely necessary, he produced a par- eel, which was laid on the table. Q Have yon any connexion with the mail coach which plies between Inverness and Aber- deenA. No. Q. It a parcel be booked at Inverness accord ing to its value, or insured at Inverness, to he scut to Edinburgh, and it be lost, how is it to he ascertained whether it was lost betwixt Inver- ness and Aberdeen,, or betwixt Aberdeen and Edinburgh?- A. The Inverness office may prove its arrival at Aberdeen, before the Edinburgh office has any thing to do with it. Q. hat security has a person sending a par- ed from Inverness to Edinburgh, that it will be forwarded from Aberdeen?—A. Our own inte- rest. Q. How are parcels booked at yonr office ?— A. Just as you see them in these way-bills. It appeared from the way-bills, tiiat neither the Christian names of the persons lo whom the parcels are addressed, nor their places of abode, are hooked so that if a parcct be uiis- sing, and inquired for, Ihe answer is (as in the present case) "there are several parcels mark ed here, addressed to the same name, but we cannot tell vvlietliei- ativ were addressed to you, as we never mind the Christian, but only the surnames" Q. How do you know by the way-hill whether a parcel has been insured or not ?—A. It is marked. It did not appear, however, that there were columns Ift for this purpose. There were only iwo for marking Ihe carriage from In vernesslo Aberdeen, and from Aberdeen to Edinburgh, No instance of insurance was seen in many of the way-bills. Q. Suppose that the person at Aberdeen, who has the charge of booking and making out the way-hills, should frulldulently omit to insert the insurance, or abstract the parcel altogether, what means have you or the public of deleting such a fraud ? — A. No means at all. Q. When parcels arrive in Edinburgh, how are they delivercd r-A. They are given to our porter Q. What check have you for ascertaining that your porter delivers the parcels ?—A. None, ex- cept that he pays us the carriage. Q. Do not you think that, in delivering parcels to your porter, with no other check over him than the price of the carriage, you expose him to very great temptation t,) steal the parcels?—A. Do Yok, think I have not learn t my business ? Q, Do you consider that you are not respon- sible for any parcel above the vdlueof A5 if not insured, if it should he proved that the parcel was not lost upon the road, but did actually ar- rive safe in your office ?-A. Not at all be- yond 5l The complaioer then made the following obsmaliousIt is evident from this, that I it is in the power of the people in the mail coai h-oflice. lo open any parcel not insured. and, for a risk of 51. to abstract its contents.' j Here Mr. Phillips stated, that he had set about an inquiry respecting the missing parcel, and asked for a little time and the examina- tion was ordered to proceed next day. The coaiplainer desired that the way-bills should be detained in the office. To this Mr. P. objected, as he could not do without them. The complainer consented to his removing them, on the clerk's writing his name upon them, and Mr. P. promising to bring them again the next day. The complainer stated, that he felt himself bound to mention to Mr. P. that, as it appear- ed evident from the way-bills, that a parcel j had actually come with the complainer's name, on the very day it was expected, and if that parcel should not be accounted for, he would hold the mail proprietors responsible for the amount. The next day Mr. Phillips appeared, and "tated, that he could not trace the parcel to any other person of the complainer's name. but that he had brought the list made out for the porter, by which it appeared that the por- ter had received the parcel, and had paid the charges on it at (lie otlice. as if it had been delivered. He added, that he had sent out the porter, Archibald Drumrtiond, again this morning, but that he had not returned. A warrant for apprehending Drummond was forthwith issued, and he was met coming tip to the office, and Mr. P. returned with him, when he denied all knowledge of the parcel Drummond persisted in file dcijiul, and a war rant was prepared for searching the house in which he lived. While this was doing he was put into a cell, and before Serjeant-Major In- glis proceeded with a search warrant, he went to Drummond, and drew from him a confes- sion that he had secreted the parcel, which was a sealed one, and had taken money out of it that lie had used some of it, and lost some of it, but that he believed the whole, except about 301. would be found in a place which he described in his mother's house, where it was found accordingly, together with a quautity of new apparel and other things.

BON A i' AllTE IN EL HA. (From the Quarterly Review, just published.) (Concluded from our last.) What the details of Augereau's esse may he we really are uninformed; but those of Mariiioll L'-i, which we do know, give the lie to his quondam master's accusation- Marmont's conduct, underjhe difficult circumstances in which he commanded the troops engaged in the defence of i'aris, has always appeared to us a masterpiece of courage, discretion, and genefositv. He fought while he could and when he could no longer defend Paris by arms, he saved it hy a tvosl honorable capitulation he preserved his army for the service of I)is country, and when every thing Pit-- wat fost, ct,k stipulated for the safety of Bitotialiarle. This last stipulation Bouapartu aSects to treat with -Contempt and indignation; but he must not forget that no care has so much distinguished him since his abdication as the care of his per. son, and that, by the treaty of the Illh of April, he even descended to sell his empire for a sum of money, a baseness which Marmont was too much a man of honour to thiuk of proposing. Bonaparte accuses Marmont of the want of preparation at Paris. What had Marmont to say to that ? He was with his army, and only approached Paris in the course of the events of the war. KIng- Joseph, and General Ilulin (president of the tribunal that murdered the Duke d'Enghein) commanded in Paris—ii there was any neglect, it was theirs and no: Marmont's. 'What,' said Bonaparte, 4 200 pieces of can non in the Champ de Mars, und unlytwo at ,M,)iittnati-c ? ah ce trailre de Marmont he itiolilil sly, ili ce liaitre de Joseph 1 the fact 1, we believe, true, and proves only the inca- paciiy of Joseph, the neglect of Hulin, and the injustice of Bonaparte; but it proves no- thing of the accusation against Marshal Mar- mont. That Marmonl'sconduct ruined Bonaparte we may admit, but it was only by saving Pa- ris from plunder, by enabling the public mind lo declare itself, and by preventing the bloody union of foreign and civil war in the capital. We have been induced to say so much, because we know that the abuse of M Marmont is in France and this country one of the rallying points of the still existing friends of this calumnious tyrant. Of the ailied troops, as compared with his, he expressed the most profound contempt the Prussians were the best, but he would beat even them with one third of their num- In the vexation of his heart, however, he did justice to Bhtcher Ce vieux (liable,' he said, never gave me any rest. 1 beat him to day—good, he attacked me to-tii,irrow- I beat him in the morning-he was ready to tight again in the eve-iiiiig. He suffered enor- mous losses, and according to all calculation, ought to have thought himself too happy to be allowed to retire unmolested, instead of which he immediately advanced upon me i ah, le vieux diable 1' Of the publc manner in which Bonaparte speaks of topics of this nature, we shall select one instance. It is not long since, that hap pening to cross the Piazzi di Armi, at Porto Ferrajo, he saw some officers of his guard in a coffee-house he stopped and directed ihem to be called out, and a cup of coffee to bit brought to him; when he had received it, he held iiup, aflie stood in the middle of the square, and exclaimed with a ioud voice, 1 remember that I once could beat forty thousand Aus- trians with ten thousand of my guards 1' lie then drank his coffee, got into his carriage, without saying another word, and drove away. The spectators thought him mad, but we sus- pect that there was, at least, as touch of mis- chief as of madness III his speech. On reveraJ occaiioua be hu been forward to -='" I express his contempt ot the people, and more pointedly of the Government of the United States. He has totally forgotten M, le Due I de Bassauo's assiiraijec. that his Majesty loved the A niericatis,' and he has very candid- ly avowed that he published his Berlin and Milan.decrees with the object of involving them iu a war wilh Great Britain, which he expected would have operated as a diversion to his own continental projects. He succeed- ed in exciting the war, but fortunately nei- ther he nor his transatlantic auxiliaries have derived any advantage from their iofanwlIl league. Bonaparte in Elba. and America has just signed a peace without ohtaining; anyone of the objects for which she went to vvir and we cannot but entertain hopes that I-,r. Madi- son is dt-stmed, like his brot'Vr potentate, to laste, in a short time, the bitter sweets of a constrained retirement from public affairs. When the first impressions of novelty were effaced, and the first litirry of his over, Bonaparte seems, from all the accounts which we have read or heard, to have gradu- ally subsided, as was naturally to be expected, into a state bordering OTI ennui. He has grown fatter, exercises less, and sleeiis more; yet still exhibits, by fits, all his characteristic restlessness, and siillamuses himseif with plans of bulldlllgs and projects of administration, which are abandoned as fast as conceived. One of his projects made a great deal of noise and excited some ridicule in his island it was no other itiati to send a cargo of iron ore to America. We have not heard whether i has been executed, but we should think that the iron, by the time it was manufactured iti America, from the Klhese ore, would have af- forded but a bad return to the imperial spe- culator. One proprietor of iron mines exhibited'an. instance of independent honesty and resistance, which lituit have been quile new to Napoleon. This man, il see's, had fit his hands aconsider- able sum of nonc) for duties belonging lo the FrenchGovernment. This Bonaparte wanted to seize; the man replied the money was neither his nor Bonttparte's, bul tile Kiiii: of France's, and thai he could not pay it into any othec hands. Bonaparte insisted and stormed, but the sturdy irun worker replied lhat — 300,000 bayonets should not territy him into a b>eacii of trust;—a shrewd way of reminding Bona- parle that he had no longer the argument of 300,000 bayonets to sanction his iiijilstict.- This tnans dispute with the Emperor was well known in Elba. and his conduct much approved. On some sub equent occasion, when he had returned to his residence from a temporary absence, his workmen and their familtes made a kind of procession to testify their respect and love for him. Bonaparte was offended at this, and took the tiisl occasion of saying to him, sa-castirally. Eh biell, Mon- sieur, on vous a recu chez vous comme un souverain I-Comme un piere. sire, was the ready and overwhelming answer of the iron- worker. The Emperor has lately intimated his inten- tion of giving his capital the new name of Cosmopoli. It had been formerly sometimes called Cosimopoli, in honour of the Grand Duke (CKimo) its founder; of this circum- stance Bonaparte takes advantage, and, wilh a slight change, will confer on Forto Ferrajo the magnificent title of » The City of the If'Torld.' How absurd and contemptible this now appears to its yet loqtjt-li trit-ks. played on a great scale, he owes much ot the reputa- tion with which he dazzled all Europe. Bul these higli sotitiditig names and speci. ousprojcctsot future improvement do not appear to reconcile the Elbese to the govern- Inent of Sapoleon. now heller understood, or rather felt by Ihem. The wheel of vicissitude has made a full rotation w tli atid their actual condition begins to have very striking resemblances lo a period of Iheir ancient his- tory, of A liieli M. Beriieaud gives us the fol- lowing account:— fit 1398, Gherardo Appiano, who had ususped the dominion of Pisa, perceived that Ihe number and power of his enemies abroad and of Ihe malcontents at home daily aug- mented, aud fearin* lest he should either be driven into a miserable exile, or be put to death, he consented to sell the country which he had usurped, for 200,000 florins, reserving to himself, amongst other small possession the islands of Elha and Pianosa 4 This revolution was far from producing happy consequences to glb". Every kind of extortion soon prevailed; the laxes were greedily increased,& the ravages of the plague I came to assist in the depopulation of the is. land. Us commerce, placed under ill-consi- dered regulations, was ruined its agriculture neglected the mines, subjected to heavy im- positions, wre abandoned, and the granite quarries were no longer worked. The emi- gration became considerable every tiling tended to increase if and notwithstanding his pride and lofty pretensions, the new sovereign, could not conceal his folly, impolicy, and im- potence.' (c. 3. s. I.) How soon Ihcwholeofthis old picture may be restored by the master-pencil of Bouapane. we cannot foretel but all that we have heard of his proceedings, induces us to fear that N a- polione Bonaparte, having walked so far in the step* ol his country man Gherardo Appiano is very likely to follow still further his exam. pie; and we believe, that even now a consi- I derable degree of dtscontent is fell, and hat much desertion and emigration have aireadj taken place. Some of those who originally accompanied iBt)tialiarte ar, we know, returned iu disgust to France; aud account# from ltaiy stale, that he has been obliged to supply the desertions from his guards by enlisung men from Cor- sic it and tile neighbouring coast and all who have lately visited the island report, that the conduct of the Emperor has given every where the greatest dissatisfaction, and exeifell in the minds of the inhabitants of the island ) and even ot the neighbouring coutioeot, eon.. | siderable appieheusiou. <

It is not in- tended that these queries shall be issued every year but it appears to their Lordships, that it 'W,¡¡¡ give much less trouble both to the bishops and the clergy if these queries are now circulated at the same time and in the same manner with the annual queries respecting residence and curates.

UxnniDGE ARMS, most conveniently and delightfully situated at the entrance or the town of Carnarvon, on the road leading from the city of Bangor, now in the holding of Mr. Wakeman, who is about to retire from public business. j It consists on the first floor, of a large par- four, and three others, of suitable and convenient dimensions a spacious kitchen, and other offices adjoining; together with a good sized bar, most judiciously placed so as to overlook the kitchen, the entrances to the house, and to the different parlours, as well as the whole of the court-yar(i, to which a bay window is introduced. On the first floor is a large room, which conve- niently accommodates a dinner party of eighty, and which by means of partitions and folding doors, forms two excellent drawing rooms, each I commanding a beautiful view of the Menai and the Island of Anglesea. There are, besides, on the floor, as well as in the attic story, a suitable number of exceeding good bed-rooms; and the cellars under ground are extensive and commo- dious. In the rear of the house, and contiguous there- to., is a spacious court yard, comprising a very large coach-house, with a room of equal size above; several stablesf cow houses, larder, dairy, laut- -Iry t servants bed rooms, malt house, brew hoirse, and a variety of other offices, all arranged with great judgment; and within a few yards of the house, is a large wallpd garden, with a smaller adjoining. The tenant may be accommodated with any quantity of land, within a convenient distance, 'net exceeding 190 acres. There being an excellent market at Carnarvon, the Hause may receive a constant supply of every necessary article, especially fish of the best sorts. Independent of the regular travelling to Car- narvon, and the several public meetings held there within the course of the year, the very general re- sort to that town in the summer season, affords a source of considerable emolument to the Inn- keeper. And all circumstances taken into consi- deration, there can hardly be a doubt but that a person well conversant in the business, may, by becoming tenant of the llotelat Carnarvon, serve himself and the public, with very great ad van (age to both, especially at this time when there hap- pens to be a good opening. The tenant may be accommodated with all the valuable household furniture, plí!tc" irnen, china, horses and carriages, trtid also wifh the crops and produce of the at a vatuation- And further may be had by apply- ing to Thomas Jones, Esq Bryntirion, near Bangor; Mr, -John Williams, at Plasnewydd, Anglesea or to Messrs.

The duty payable on Foreign Wheat imported within the three months following the 15th Feb. will be fixed by the average price of the twehe maritime disIricts during the six-preceding weeks. On reference to the Gazette of the 7th inst. it will be found, that the average of Cardiganshire, Carnarvonshire, Pembrokeshire, Carmarthen- shire, Monmouthshire, Denbighshire, t- iin'shire, Durham, Cumberland, Westmoreland, Lanca- shire, and Cheshire, are exceedingly high. It is incumbent on those interested, to see, that the- Receiver of Corn Returns- does his duty, aud re- ports the price of had quality, as well as good.- No time should be lost; if the average be fairly taken, it will fall below 63 per Quarter, and ex- clude import. The neglect and indifference of some of the Reporters will easily be discovered by a slight investigation. It is necessary to ob- serve, that in Towns where the price or weight of bread is regulated by assize, a fair average is seldom given ;—the millers only report the best quality to preserve a good profit.
