The presence of the Archdukes of Austria, in this country, brings to recollection the fol. lowing anecdote respecting one of the Impe- rial Family, who with the Archduchess for- merly visited this country. it is extracted from the Ladies Magazine for Oct. 1786:- A singular circumstance occurred as the Archduke of Austria passed through Devizes. A custom has prevailed in lhal place, of which the following is the foundation :-A poor wea- ver passing through the town without money and friends, being overtaken by hunger, and in the utmost necessity, applied for charity to a baker, who kindly gave him a penny loaf. The weaver made his way to Coventry, where, after many years industry, he amassed a for- tune, and by his will, in remembrance of the seasonable charity of the Devizes people, he bequeathed a sum in trust for the purpose of distributing on the anniversary day when he was so relieved, a halfpenny loaf for every person in the town, gentle and simple, and to every traveller who should pass through the town that day a penny loaf. The will is faithfully administered, and the Duke of Aus- tria and his siiite passing through the town on the day of the Coventry loaf, on their way from Bath to Loudon, a loaf was presented to each of them, of which the Duke and Duchess were most cheerfully pleased to accept, and the custom struck the Archduke so forcibly as a curious anecdote in his travels, that he mi- nuted down the circumstance, and the high personages seemed to take delight in break- fasiiug on the loaf thus given as the testimony of gratitude for a favour seasonably confer- red."
THE PRINCE REGENT'S VISIT…
THE PRINCE REGENT'S VISIT TO THE MARQUIS OF ANGLESEY. Litchfield, Monday, Nov. i.-Information having been received of the departure of his Royal Highness the Prince Regent from town, on his route to Beaudescrt, the seat of the Marquis of Anglesey, near this city,every pre- paration was made to receive his Royal High. ness in this city with due honours. Nearly two hundred tenantry of the Noble Marquis arriv- ed on horseback, early in the forenoon on Monday a dinner for whom had been provid- ed at the George Inn. In the mean time the Earl of Uxbridge accompanied by Lord Yar- mouth, fwho had previously arrived at Beau. desert) Lord Greaves, Sir Arthur Paget, Gen. Sir E. Paget, Mr. Singleton, and Mr. Cecil Forrester, arrived in this city, to give the necessary directions concerning his Royal Highness's arrival ;,after which they departed, followed soon afterwards by the tenantry, at the head of whom his Royal Highness was to be received at Longdon, and escorted to the mansion of the noble Marquis. About five j o'clock General Bloomfield arrived in the Duke of Clarence's carriage. He stopped at the George IIID, where he remained a consider* able time. About six o'clock, a signal was made of his Royal Ilighuess's approach, when the whole tength from St. John-street to Bird- street was clioaked with the populace. The public constantly cheered his Royal Highness, who was accompanied by the Duke of Cla- rence who sat on his right hand, and Sir E. Nagle. He drove rapidly through this crowd- ed and emulous scene, till he arrived at tho George Inn. The Marquis's horses being then put to the carriage, his Royal Highness and the Duke of Clarence bowed to the cheering huzzas of the populace, and drove away.— The mettle of the Marquis's steeds were such, that they were with difficulty reined in and owing to the darkness of the nigcht (the lamps having then been lighted) the carriage was thrust into the ditch, in going down the hill, at the turn of Featherbed lane, near this city. It was however soon righted, without any ac- cident. At Longdon the tenantry of the noble Marquis, headed by his keepers* (a peculiar form of the ancient custom) received his Royal Highness and conducted him to the Hall. Some thousands of people from Ruge- ley were assembled, and rent the air with ac- clamations, as the Prince turned up for Beau- desert. Tuetday, Nov. 7.-0n this day, atiouf four o'clock in the afternoon, their Royal High- nesses the Archdukes John and Louis, of Alto- tria, arrived in this city. They bad passed with considerable rapidity through the pre- ceding towns, in order to arrive at Beaudesert in time to dine with the Prince Regent. An aide de camp of the Marquis of Anglesey at- tended on them. at the George Inn. to conduct them to the residence of the Marquis. The morning being remarkably fine the Prince walked in the park and domain, with which he expressed himself highly pleased. A shooting party was afterwards formed, and though his Royal Highness we understand has not shot for many years, he bagged from his own gun, fourteen head of game. In the evening the Austrian Archdukes John and Louis, with their suite, joined the party at Beaudesert. Procession of the Bailiff*, (itizens, lleco rder, c. of the City and (tone of Litchfield. His Royal Highness the Prince Regent having been graciously pleased to fix on Wed. uesday, at one o'clock, to receive the Address of tile, city ut* Litclitield. the Bailiffs, &c. at- tended by different Gentlemen of the City aud Close, assembled in the Guildhall at eleven o'clock. The carriages of the different par- ties, about sixteep in number, were arranged ill a line, to take up with their heads towards St. iolits street. Soon after ejeveu o'clock the Party set out, preceded by the Sheriff and Mace bearers, followed by the Recorder, in a chariot and four; the Bailiffs, &c. &c. in due form and order the Corporate Body in their robes of office, and the remainder of the De- putation iu full dress. A dozen of his Lord-j Ll ship's servatit4, dressed in rich liveries, receiv- ed the gentlemelt from their different car. riages, at the grand eulrance, and conducted them into an eleganl antichamber adjoining the hall. They were received by their noble host the Marquis of Anglesey, and General Bloomfield. the latter of whom explained the necessary ceremonies to be observed in the Royal presence. John Lane, Esq. and J. D. Fowler, Esq. the Legal Officer and Bailiff of Indicative, probably, of his Lordship's right of free warren over Canuock Chase, Burton on Trent, had arrived, de puted to present the address of the latter place, and attended in the same chamber. The Litchfield Deputation were first introduced. They were conducted into a spacious dining room, where they were most graciously received by his Royal Highness, who stood IJI) in the centre, having General Bloomfield on his right, iu waiting. On the ri^hl, near the fire-place, were the Duke of Clarence, with the whole of thll female part of the Marquis's family,consisting of the Marchioness, Ladies Jane and Caroline Paget, Ladv Greaves, and the whole of the numerous younger branches: In the back ground was the Marquis, bavino- on his left the Earl of Uxbridge, Lords Yar^ mouth and Greaves, &c.$c. the whole stand ing. The Recorder, Thomas Levett, Esq. advanced in front of the Deputation, the Bai- liffs, being advanced on his right and left, and read, in a distinct, though audible voice, the Address which he had prepared. To which his Royal Highness was pleased to return the following most gracious answer- To the Bailiffs, Citizens, Recorder and Inhabi- tants of the Cityaud Close of Litchfield. GENTLEMEN, I thank you for your loyal and dutiful, Ad- dress. The satisfaction I feel at all times in receiving the conratlllations; of his Majesty's subjects, is much heightened on the present oc- casion, receiving them, as 1 now do, in the man- sion of a Nobleman, whose distinguished conduct has so much contributed to the triumphs which will immortalize the British arms, and whose biood,however deeply I lament the fate of my Gallant Host, has not been sheet in vain, during the torions struggle, which, under the blessing of Divine Providence, has terminated in the res- toration of the rights and liberties of the -world; a struggle unexampled in history, and which, but for the energies of the people, rising as the dif Acuities of the country augmented, coutd not have been maintained to its triumphant close.- In the performance of the arduous duties of my exalted station, t have ever looked for my high- est reward, in the glory, prosperity, and hap piness of my country. To be, assured by vour highly respectable body, that my labours" are appreciated, cannot fail to afford me true gratifi- cation and L take with pleasure this opportu- nity of assuring you of my best wishes for your welfare." The Deputation then withdrew, bowing in the usual form. John Lane, and J. D. Fowler, Esqrs. bearing the Address of the Inhabitants of Burton on Trent, were then introduced in the same form; when John Lane, Esq. as the legal officer of the Borough, read the Address to which his Royal Highness was pleased to make the fol. lowing most gracious reply- To the Bailiff. High Steward and others of A is Majesty''s subjects, of the Boi-otigh of Burton upo,. trent. GENXr.EMEY, I receive with sincere pleasure, the expres- sion of your welcome in this county, and am most anxious to assure you how highly I fed the loy- alty and attachment which have been manifested by all ranks upon that occasion. The splendid and triumphant successes which have attended his Majesty's arms in the late trying contest,"are mainly owing to the firm support f have experi- enced from all classes of the people. With yoH I feel, that the nation's glory has attained a prowl pre-eminence over all former periods of its History and I derive an increased gratifica- tion in receiving you under the roof of ("-ur gallant countryman, whose deeds of valor in the late memorable Battle of Waterloo, so mutch contri- buted to vhe glory of that day. 1 am truly s''ii- sible of the genuine expressions of your attach- ment to our revered Sovereign, to myself, and to his Family, alld I have great satisfaction in as- suring you of my good wishes for the prosperity and welfare of the Borough of Burton UpUII Trent." The preceding Address having been read by John Lane, Esq. as High Steward, it was handed to J, D. Fowler, Esq. as Bailiff, who presented it to the Prince llegenl, kncelin when, as the noble Marquis's Bailiff of the Borough of Burton on Trent, the honour of Knighthood was conferred upon him. The Duke of Clarence drew the sword, which had been presented to the Marquis of Anglesey by the City of Litehfield, and waving it over the shoulder of Mr. Fowler, the Prince Regent bent it on his person, and Sir J. D. Fowler kissed hands on the occasion. The different deputations were conducted as they withdrew, up the grand staircase, into the elegant sa- loon, or gallery adjoining the drawing-room, where a most elegant and sumptuouscollatioii was set out, consisting of every delicacy which expence or invention could procure, and in- cluding a mosldelicious banquet of the choicest fruit, and the most luxurious wines. The elegant vasp presented to the Noble Marquis, by I he inhabitantsof Burton on Trent, adorned the centre of lhe table. The noble Host, ihe Marquis of Anglesey, did the company the honour of taking the head of the table, and gave as a toast—" ihe Prince Regent,' which was drank with the liviiest satis- faction by the company. On the noble Lord retiring, a similar compliment was paid to him—the gallant and hospitable nobleman, whose valourous achievements, and whose polite attention conciliated admiration. The venerable Viscount Curzon, aud the Hon. Mr. Curzon, Lords Greaves and Yarmouth, &c. occasionally traversed the rooms during the repast. After duly refreshing themselves, the deputation proceeded to admire the uobie and splendid furniture of the drawing-room. Af- ter the company had withdrawn, the Marquis and the Ladies proceeded to shew his Royal Highness the different departments of their establishment. Among those the noble and well-stored larder, in which were displayed, labelled with their different days of consump- tion, upwards of 50 brace of pheasants, 20 brace of hares, with black game, venison. &c. &c. in proportion. His Royal Highness was then conducted to the stables, where a new Hussar saddle, on a novel principle, (invented by some person of local practice) was exhi- bited on one of the Marquis's chargers, with which his Royal Highness expressed much sa- tisfaction. Previous to dinner, the Duke of Clarence, accompanied by the Earl of Ux. bridge, &c. paid a visit to Litchfield. Their Royal Highness's the Archdukes John and Louis, took a ride on the hills. A conccrt was given in the evening to the Royal Party, who partook in its harmony with all the ame- nity of private life. The Prince Regent, in particular, made himself most agreeable by his friendly familiarity and condescension. In addition to the personages formerly named were added, Priuce Esterhazy, Captain Charles Paget, Count Dillon, Monsieur Clierettor, &c. Buonaparte, during a lew tiays previous to ins departure from Paris, appeared meditative, and mudl employed; it was, however, on his own personal affairs. His attention was turned to the new world whither he was going. You may, perhaps, suppose that the examples of those Bo- mall heroes wbo could lIot outlive their honour- able defeat on the plain of Philippi, might have occurred to his remembrance or he of Pontus, who, though out of the reach of Pompey, sought no lurlher refuge than the Cinierian Bosphorus, by I he double instrument of poison the sword. You may imagine that he was reflecting on the friendly offers of his faithful Mameluke, who, on his abdication the preceding year at Fontain- bleau, stood before him with his newly-sharpened scimetar, saying, that he waited his orders to perform Ihe last duty. The examples of Cafo, of Utica, of Hannihal, and of so many other illus- trious personages, you may believe, glided through his mind. No, Buonaparte's thoughts were remote from those heathenish deeds of greatness his meditations were of a more soPt-r and familiar nature. The preparations with which tie was busied at this eventful moment, big with his fate," were those of Perkal, and perfumery and his discourse was of the cut, qize, all(] (juali(v of various kinds of shirts, and the quantity of pomatums and perfilmes which he jutlgeil necessary for his expedition The inven- tory of those objects which lie has left behind him is not the least curious fragment found in the collection of his State Papers. It appears that no detail was omitted or neglected, for the voyage he was preparing to make towards the new world, in the well-stored cabin of a light frigate and as to his return to our hemisphere, he tett that affair, at present, to his destin.

To the Editor of the A'orth tvales Gazelle. S i u, IN yonr Gazette of Oct. 20th, I read, with sonte degree of satisfaction, a Paper addressed "To the Inhabitants of Wales," upon a sub- ject, in which, our dearest and most sacred riglds arc deeply involved. 1 have, hitherto, remained silent, expecting to see something advanced in the plausible shape of a Reply- to so important a document, but to my infi- nite mortification, have been most egregiously disappointed. Multifarous, indeed, have been the writers, who, as avowed assailants, have aimed their innoxious shafts against this" Hy- dra of terror." Their heterogeneous effusions are now before the public, and what is the re- sult of their efforts ? Instead of confining their arguments to the illegality of the evil com- plained of, they have cautiously avoided the main object in view, and have amused them- selves hy "soaring in aerial flights, amid the regions of mist," where 1 shall leave them for the present, and procecd to elicit the serious attention of your numerous readers, to the following Legislative evidence, upon this important question, viz. the 51h of Elizabeth, and Case of Law upon the said Acts of Parlia- ment, entitled Albany and the Bishop of St. Asaph, Trinity 27. Elizabeth. C. B. 1st Leo- nard 39. and also, Coke, Elizabeth 119. Quare lmpedil for Ihe Church of AVliitihgton. Item, the Act of Uniformity, the 13tii and 14th of Charles Ihe Second, chap. 4. section 27. which enacts (as a Public Act) the 5th of Eli- Zfjhelh, lotidem verbis. I would have for- warded, copies of these Documents, hut wa» apprehensive, they would occupy too conside- rable a space in your weekly publication, al. though, I flatter myself, corroborative facts like those just quoted, would prove, in the sequel, more satisfactory to the general taste of your numerous readers, than the vasllllalI of, ilicoil"rriloils, iii-it ter, witiclk has of late ap- peared in your columns, upon a subject, which 1 humbly conceive to be of the most vital importance to every itlllalJjlatll of (he Prin- cipality.

To the Editor of the orlii…
To the Editor of the orlii Ir ale. Gazette. Sir, A disappointed Welch Spinster, begs you will insert the following in your next Gazette. My fair Friends ana Countrywomen, To L-dies so proud of their origin, and so te- nacious ot their rights as we of the Principality (lave ever been, if is no smalt uio'rtideation to see our native females deprived of what may be eatled their BIHTIIRIGHT, by the introduction of Knglish, Scotch, aud Irish Wives among us. If the evil, painful aud degrading as it is, ended merely iu tlie depression of my unfortunate Sis- terhood.1 houlrI wait patiently in hopes of better times hut however great the beauty, ac- complishments, and amiable character of these fair foreigners may be. they can never become useful domestic wives, among its. They may parrot-like he taught, to pronounce their house- holtl orders in our mother tongue, and even per- form the task without otten offending their ser- vants, by gross anllludicrolls hlutllhrs; yet surely every husband will require something more than this, from thc wife to whom he even cummitsthe smallest family'. In the management of affairs where love is not concerned, men are wiser.— It it my firm belief, ihat our country will soon cease to boast oi the purity of its language and that colloquial barbarism will preside at our tables unless we instantly exert ourselves. 11 might be advisable to carry onr complaint to thefnot of the Throne. Our illustrious Re- gent, who inherits our good old King's regard for the fair sex, will not, we may rest assured, turn a deaf ear to us but instead of presuming to trouble his Royal Highness, or his- servants, in the present situation of the conjugal world, I would in the first instance have recourse to the laws uxorial and let me my country women, earnestly call your immediate attention to the spirit, as well as the letter of the opinion which I lay before you. A WELCH SPINSTER. CASE. In the parish of B. in Wales, there is a mix- ture of languages amongst the inhabitants, viz. Welsh and Eliglisti, aiici the Minister has taken to him a wife unacquainted with the Welch language. Your opinion is requested, whether a woman who cannot converse in both languages, can be legally married to the Minister of such parish ? OPINION. In a parish of this description, I conceive a woman, to be (July. qualified to become the wife of the Minister, ought to be able to converse in the vernacular tongue of both languages, and want of ability, aborigine, might, I think operate as a cause of divorce, a vinculo matrimoiiii.- But Ihe more fair way would be, to enter a caveat before the solemnization, when (he bride elect might appear in Court, produce her licence, and might set forth her loquacity in one lan- guage as an excuse for her ignorance of the other but I conceive this plea rather as an ag- gravation than a mitigation of the offence. Or the bride elect might proceed by quare impedit, when the cause woutd be brought before a jury of Matrons, selected de inediatate linguae. S.M. Doctor's Commons, July 11 th} 1805, Their Imperial HigiHiesst'g lite Ainu. John and Lewis, brothers to the Emperor ot Austria, with their suite, arrived at Leicester on Monday last; on Tuesday niornintr ihey visited manufactory o! Messrs Kelly, of that place, and spent some time in inspecting the machinery; they afterwaids proceeded on their way to Beau Desert, tilt, seat of the Mar- qniss of Anglesey.
