,1 STAGE COACHES. r '.1 D [ L The following lettet- from a Gentleman cf Bris- tol, will be found interesting; it. is addres- sed to the Editor of the Monthly Magazine. Nothing is more common than to hear our fore-falhers censored for their had roads, slow Ira veiling, heavy (arriages, clulIlsy cattle; and those times are held up to ridicule, when so great was the danger of the road, that men made their wills previous to setting out on a journey of fifty miles: andyet,after all judg- ing impartially, it does not appear that at present we have much occasion to boast of our great improvements in the art of travel. with all our wisdom and expirience. As far as public conveyances go, we have not lessened the dangers, or got much by abridg ing the time, if we take into consideration the infinite inciease of expence; and if they were a little more jolted, it got them a belter appe- tite, I suppose, to a wholesome and reasonable meal; whereas, we are crammed into a case like poultry for the market, and delivered over regularly three or four times a day hy our driver and tyrant, to had provisions, inso- lence and impositions of all sorts. Then, again, if they did take any outside passengers, (which I much doubt,) they were probably servants or civil poor people, and ready to oblige those within whereas, now, none are dependant but the gentry inside, commonly called live-lumber, each outside passenger making it a point to be as abusive as the coachman; eitherswearing, talking obscenely, drumming above head,, or kicking his dirty shoes in at the window roaring, driuking at every alehouse, sending you down his whifs of tobacco-spittle, or what not; or, if he hap- pens to get wet, finds room, and can tip the coachman a shilling, coming down with a dripping jacket and stinking breath, to sot and keep you company, and make himself agree- able, as he calls it. C, Once you crawled, and were overset gently now you gallop and are dashed to atoms; and, on either extreme, you should make your will-and take leave of your relations. But to be serious on a subject now become so very serious as stage-coach travelling is, when his Majesty's subjects are daily slaugh. tered, or have their bones broken, without the least remorse, to gratify the avarice of some, and the folly of others. < There is not a doubt, that folly, ignorance] and false courage, have united with the cal pidity of the owuers ot stage coaches, in greatly promoting this enormous evil in society: youthful foil; is naturally delighted with rai- I ptd motion, bnt il never relied* on any thing but prcsent pleasure; and all pa rlies are kepi ignorant of the risk, by stifling Newspaper j I reports of accidents both by pay and the in- fluence obtained through advertising in their pages: even coaehmen's tines for dangerously si,iiviii-, are seldom reported; and 1 have I known a city where not. one Paper would in- sert a fine, levied with a view to apprise the ,1}Uhl íc oí theIr danger. because all were em- ploy ed to give notice of this fast travelling.—• Nothíng ever -brings these frequent disasters U> light, but.anairlion al law resisted, which it is not one time ifi twenty the coach owners have the stupi4%-to meet, or the absolute destruction <>} life tjb the spot; in which case, the coroner's jury d'iseWjeS the melancholy talc.

The greater part of those we see in opposition couches, are purchased to be killed by over- exertion; numbers drop dead on the road con tinualiy, and wretches are employed day and night to excite them, by every simulation of food, to altempfli beyond the powers of na- ture.

What the present laws, under active and humane magistrates, can do, has been tried in vain. The owuersset the profits got by violating the laws, iu overloading, against hues; the coachmen, in defrauding! the owners by taking parcels for themselves, and by taking passengers on their own ac- count, at low rates, whom they set down short, or make to get down and walk through towns where they change horses, to be taken lip on the oilier side. Oil many great roads titerc is a continual warfare between the own- en: and their servants; and spies are set and regularly paid for counting the passeugers, to check the way-bills; in short, no Act hitherto made has been of much effect to cure abuses, for either the passenger has passed the county where conviction must take place, or his more important personal concerns call him llway from his public duty and this they know, and calculate upon, procrastinating and em. ploying counsel to deter the traveller from at- tempting a redress under Acts of Parliament. We must, therefore, if we would effectually project the King's subjects, frame an entire new Act of Parliament, containing a compleat set of regulations for stage-coaches, of which the following, it appears to me, should be the outlinc; That all stage-coaches should be built on the model of the present mail-coaches, or safer if possible. That their roofs should be formed barge- wise, so that no person should be able to sit on them. That this barge part should be appropriated chiefly to tiieluggage of the passengers,having a triaugular imperial opening at the side, aud locked up. Nothing fo be put into the seals but the luggage of the passengers, and those under lock and key, which should be alwas iu the care of file coteiiiiiaii. No passenger to be allowed to put into the seats either game, fish, or gunpowder, or any thing of an offensive smell, or any way dan- gerous. No loose parcels whatever inside, or sticks or umbrellas j a box to be made near the coach-box, solely for their conveyance, and so inscribed. No coach, on ony pretence, to carry more than four inside passengers; one on the box, and two behind, on a seat over the hinder boot, placed fifteen inches lower than the roof of the coach inside, with its knee-leather. Each place, both inside and out, to be num- bered on the seit the first comer to chuse, anti so oil and a receipt to be givcn him on taking his place, for the amount of the money paid for the j omlley, on a card; on I he back of which should be printed the regulations and penalties under which the coach starts. This receipt to be transferable by indorsement, for the whole or any part of the journey and no person to occupy the place for the whol or any part of the journey, without shewing this receipt, under a heavv penalty from tlnTpro- prietors. A certain sum to be charged for the coach- mau at paying for the fare, who shall see to the loading and unloading the luggage of the passengers, and be answerable for their ge. neral safety.—The coachman to maintain himself. Each inside passenger to have a pocket on his own side, appropriated solely to his use, and numbered with his number. Each passenger to have a roomy elbow liole, 1:1 and a squab, with sufficient room for his feet, as well as legs. The rate of going not to exceed six miles per hour. In stating six miles, I calculate on the pro. servation of horses, as well as men.

FATHER AND SON. The two Dukes of lirunsmck, who fell in the T'idd of in the cause of their Country, (FROM THE RUKNISH MErruRv.) Charles Ferdinand, the father, was one of the most amiable and dignified Princes of his time. He was the particular favourite of Frederick the Second. He displayed the great- esi valour in the field during the seven years' war, when, by his daringncsund skill, he often gained important actions with very small means. flis fine figure, his wit. and delicto observance of Circumstances, distinguished him above all the German Princesof his time. He succeeded to the government of a country of no great extent, oppressed with Court ex. penditure and debts. He dedicated himself at the same lime to the Prussian army, and he took also part in the politics of Prussia. His merits, however, as a wise ruler of his own paternal dominions is least known. Here he was inimitable. it was remarkable, that in his own Stale he should have refused to in- dulge his fondness for a numerous and brilli- ant army; of all the lesser Princes he main tained the fewest troops. The care nearest heart was to lighten iK every way the burthen of his people. The expensive Opera was abo- lished, the Court Establishment placed on the simplest fooling, intriguing favourites banish- ed, and order and economy introduced in the right place. The Duke inquired mmulely into every tiling-he was al ways accessible to the distressed—he had a singular memory, and knew the history of « very great number of his subjects. He willingly conversed with his people; he sought opportunities of allowing the lower orders to communicate with him" all were known to him, but he left every man at full liberty in Ills operations for very dif ferent from so many other petty Princes, he never attempted lo intermeddle in affairs which ought always to be left perfectly free The State debts were soon honestly discharged the prosperity of his Stale increased, the taxes which rose in all the other Stales were (a sin- I gular fact in all times) actually diminished in his. His memory is held among all classes of lirunswickers, in the highest affection. In every village of Ihe country he is the subject on which the people fondly dwell. Frederick William, the "son of Charles Fer- dinand, distinguished himself in two events, in the last of which he fell with glory. When the dependence of Europe was sealed by the peace of 1309, the Duke of Brunswick was on the Bohemian frontiers, in the middle ,)f, stib. jugated Germany. Disdaining, though it was in his power, to remain subject to the enemy, he undertook Ihe passage which seemed hard- ly possible, through a number of hostile bands every one of which was superior to his own, till he reached the sea, on which he did not possess a single boat. The adventure became a great achievement, from the prodigious ef- forts made, and the valour displayed in so many rencounters, the skill in countermarching to escape, the dexterity in obtaining vessels, and the good fortune with which so difficult an undeitaking was crowned. The evening bc- tore his death the Dukes of Brunswick and Wellington were at » Ball at Brussels. The Duke, whose whole mind was occupied by the awfuiness of the crisis, was often absent—he listened and heard a distant cannonadm"- He communicated the circumstance, and ex- pressed himself afraid of a surprise. Welling- ton did not entertain any such belief, but thought that it was a salutation un the arrival of the King of Prussia at his armv. Bruns- wick repeated his apprehensions several times. He requested urgently to be permitted to march out immediately with a corps, by way of guarding against danger. This was con- ceded, and he was allowed lo lake with him his Brunswickers and 2000 Saxons. He im- mediately began his march, a considerable time before midnight, allowed his troops to rest and march by turns, and advanced four German miles. He fell in all at once with a brge army of French destined to fall on Wel- lington. He had the good fortune to transmit immediate intelligence to Wellington, who availed himself of the precious hours. The devoled valour with which the Duke and his warriors for eight long hours occupied the French, to allow time for the assembling to- gether of the army—the obstinacy with which he threw himseif with his small and wearied band in the way of the hostile arm v—the loss of nearly three thousand men ou ihe part of j tha Brnustvickers — the two severe woui:d« which the Duke allowed to be bound up, a; d Ihe three slighter wounds which he disregard- ed—Ins never leaving the tighi, but ad»ancunr always again to the front, and though enfee" hied it lir-t from loss of blood, his calling out perpetually u> his people to lisrht for their country, till a new wound laid his breast open, and stretched him 011 the field :-these CII- cuinstances will always constitute one of the proudest subjects of history.— Honour to-ti-ie- sacred ashes of the Son of Henry the Lion, and of liiq Fiilier In the character of ihe .Duke the military inclination predominated. The number of troops which he maintained, and seemed to wish to continue, were much too great for a country of a qiiat-ter of a million of inhabitants; though in this new and unex- pected danger the circumstance has been par- ticularly useful. From the ardent disposition 01 the Duke, his precipitate zeal, and his want of proper knowledge of civil aifn;rs. he al- lowed himself at first to be infl lenced by per- sons whose measures, if they had not at length been put a stop to. were in a fair way of de- priving him of the love of his subjects. When the Duke found his mistake, he listened to wiser council, and things were every day tak- ing a better 1raitl, when he was called to act a part in the late events. J. G.

James s-street and the Park, To carry this object into effect, St, James's palace must he removed. The projectors, we hear, have the sanction of the Prince Regent to unlimited extent. Every inmate has already had notice- but as five years will probablv elapse ere the new palace can be finished, (he King's domes- tics will have ample time to provide (hen- selves with suitable dwellings. We underslai d that the whole of the south side of Pall Mail is to come down, excepting Marlborough- bouse, and in Cleveland row, a mansion will be built uniformly wilh that superb pile. The latter is intended for the Commander in-Clnei. An idea has been suggested to connect the whole together, in a style similar to the cor- ridor tit Carlton-house. Perhaps the period for the erection of the new Palaces (Carltor* house being intended only for the right svii),) may not he confined to five years, particu- lai I j as many of the leases do not expire much sooner.
