LONDON NEW PRICE CURRENT.
LONDON NEW PRICE CURRENT. MARCH 16. COTTON.—The purchases of Cotton during the week have been inconsiderable, yet the mar- ket looks firm, and no reduction whatever in the prices has been submitted to the following are the particulars of the sales since our last, viz.— 150 Bengals õ¡d. to õd, ordinary to middling; 199 Surats ofd. tkl. middling,- 6§d- fair; t»0 Ma- dras tkl. ordinary 110 Boweds d. to 81\ fair to good fair; 60 Carriacou lljd tol I jd.; oU Car- thagena. d. COFFEE.—The public sales brought forward last week went off without briskness; a great proportion of the Coffee brought forward was taken in. on account of the languid state of the trade for St. Domingo, of fair quality, 08s. was only offered, and the whole 2(50 bags taken in at 60s. 6d. There was a partial inquiry for fine Coffee, but there were no parcels offering. H U U AR,-The market last week remained in the SlIlIe languid state which we have lately re- ported: the business done was quite inconsider- able, and the purchasers on y bought for their own immediate wants, anticipating lower prices from the very small weekly deliveries from the West India warehouse and the consequent ac- cumulation of the stock: there was no alteration whatever in the prices. WOOL. -Tilere are no sales making, nor is it probable that there will be until the question as to the return of duties paid is set at rest; the de- putation Thursday to the president and Board of Control, returned without any definitive arrange- ment being made. TEA.—The Tea sa'e finished at the India House on Friday last; towards the clos;- of the sale, the trade was much agitated by the reports of a misunderstanding with the Chinese; the teas, of which there is a small stock here, ad- vanced materi jrlly.

BOW-STREET. MISERS v. BROWN.—- John Brown was charged with an assault and battery on the person of Miss Amelia Meets; and, to his shame be it spoken, John Brown is an Irishman. Miss Meers deposed that as she was standing W- in conversation with some female friends inNew- street on St. Patrick's ijisfht, Jphn Brown and three other Irishmen passed by "so awkwardly" that one o,- two of her party could not help langh- ing at them, and thereupon John Brown turned back and struck her violently on the head. The Magistrate asked John Brown what he had to say in excuse of such unmanly condtict. Wtiv please your Worship." said John Brown. thev ffUed up the pavement quite,en- tirely—' By y'r lave,' says I- lot! says they to me again." And for that you thought proper to strike a woman?" said the Magistrate. No uot proper, by no manes your Worship, replied John Brown; but to have em say Pat to me, put me in such a passion that I bate her without thinking it proper a ^a He was ordered to find bail for the assault; but the beaten lady afterwards begged him off on consideration of St. Patrick." ANOTHER John Brown.—Tins John Brown was an English one, and a boot-closer by pro- fession; and he had been sent to the watch-house for drinking more beer than he could pay for.— He had gone into a public house some nights ago, in which house he was a stranger, and seeing nobody but a little girl in the bar, he took the liberty of walking off without paying for the beer he had drank. On the following night he went to the same house again.—thinking to fill his bowels with beer on the same economic plan but unfortunately for him, just, as he was Wad- dling away brimful, the landlord caught him by the coat tall and, pulling him back into the house, insisted upon instant payment for all he had drank. This was a Very awkward demand upon John Brown—who at the best of times is more handy at closing a boot, than closing an ac- count; and, as he declared he collldnot pay if he would, the landlord packed him otf to the watch- house without more ad6. In his defence before the Magistrate he sa was willing to pay as s°°n as he not should not have acted so shabbily been helliwaitedw lUluor-' our- sald Sir You were drunk, were y R» Upon my word and honour I was," replied John Brown, ti« Very drunk?" saitl his Worship. 44 Kertf drunk/' replied John. 4t Then pay five shillings for having been so, said his Worship, and then the publican may summon you to the Court of Requests for the bepoor John Brown little thought his drunken confession would have led, to this sober result but there was no help for it-the Magistrate as- sured him if he did not pay the fine, he should try the tread-mill for a week; and the gaoler took him away.
At a Meeting of the Inhabitants (f ) the City Chester, held in the Town l-lal-lon Tuesdaj, the l&th qJ Alurch, 1821— TIN: nifjiir WOUS.UIM CL THE MAYOR IN THE CHAIft. It was unanimously resolved, Hp 11 AT amongst the improvements:of-tho'l^st | thirty years, none have contributed more essentially or more permanently to the eonnnei ven en cial and personal interests and convenience of this country, than those which have I by the erection of Bridges, and the scientific con- struction of the public roads,—whereby distances have been diminished, speed of communication has been accelerated, and the expences of, car," riage, and the fatigue of travelling, have been greatly lessened. That recognizing the vast iJoportnce of. thê most complete practical union of the diflerent parts of the empire, this meeting has seen with pleasure the great and successful exertions which have been made, to perfect the Road between the Metropolis and Holyhead, on the Shrewsbury Line; and now that this has been finished, and the intercourse between Ireland, and the Seat of National Government has been completed, they conceive that the Chester Road is entitled to a like degree ofattention, from the unequalled im- portance of its commercial connexion. It is the necessary medium of communication between Ire- land and the great manufacturing districts of Lancashire, Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Cheshire, Stiff • fordshire, Nottinghamshire, and Leicestershire, as well as of the Ports of Liverpool and Hull. In point of commerce, it is in fact beyond all compe- tition, the most important Line of Road between Great Britain and Ireland.. That many parts of this Road are Susceptible of very great improvement, whereby the distance between Chester and Bangorwould be contracted, and the speed of transit very much increased, and that this is become peculiarly necessary and ur- gent from the proposed arrival at Holyhead, of the London mail through Shrewsbury, two hours e r, earlier than at present; the result of which would be the sailing of the Packet before the Chester Mail got in, and the delay of the important cor- respondence of which it is the bearer. That this meeting concurs,-therefore, most cor- dially with the Merchants, &e. of Dublin, who have by Petition directed the views of the Legis- lature to the state of the Chester Line of Road, and will strenuously co-operate with them, in en- deavouring to obtain a removal ol iti detects, and that the Mayor of this City be requested to com- municate these Resolutions to the Lord Mayor of Dublin. That a Copy of these Resolutions and of the Petition to be agreed upon at tlsis 'iTeeiing, be forwarded also, with a. request for their iuniiedi- ate and most influential co-operation, to the Mayor of Liverpool, the Boreughreeves of Man- chester, the La. J Mayor of York, the Mayors of Leeds, Halifax, Sheffield, Nottingham, Derby, Newcastle-under-Tyne, Stockport, and Mat eli s- field, to the Commissioners of the Holy lu^idiioad, the Parliamentary Representatives of the City of Dublin, and of the several Counties Oti, North Wales, and of the Counties and Boroughs of the Great Northern, Commercial and ]\1¡\UH. facturiag Districts. That the Petition now read is atlf- as the Petition of this Meeting, and do lie at the Town Hall, for Signatures, till Wednesday then to be forwarded to the He^resentatives, of tU« City, for presentation, with our most eara-pst re- quest that they will give it ail the support in their power. That the foregoing Resolutions be inserted once in each of the Chester, Stockport, and Maccles- field Papers, the North Wales Gazette, and one Dublin Paper. The Mayor having left the Chair— H. Potts, Esq. moved that the thanks of this Meeting be given to him for his readiness in call- ing the Meeting, and for his collituct ill the Chair, which was carried unanimously. To the Commons of Gr^dBritainand Ireland, in Parliament assembled.^ '• The Petition of the under-signed, Inhiibdants qf the City of Chester, '.}l Town Hall, on Tuesday, the Mh oj March, 18:24, in consequence of a Requisition to the Right Worshipful the a or to thuttffect. SllOWETH That your Patitioners fully recognrzelhe po- litical, commercial, and social importance of the improved communications between the ditrerent parts of the Empire, and more especially of those between Great Britain a.nd Ireland, towards which Parliamentary aid has been granted, with a ibe- 0 'of tile rality corresponding with the magnUu the objects to be obtained. The Bridges over tho Menai & the Conway pro- mise to be of the utmost utility when coi mleted and the improvements on the Shrewsbury Line of Road have already drawn Irelandltr much speedier communication with the seat ot Govern- ment. But if the Road between Holyhead and Shrewsbury be politically the most important, that between Holyhead and Chester is commerci- .,atl!l so, beyond all comparison. Your Petitioners beg leave to remind your Ho- nourable House, that through the Chester Line of Road are necessarily carried on the great personr al intercourse and correspondericebetween I reland and the Port of Liverpool, together with tnose of the manufacturing districts of Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cheshire, Stanordshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, aud Leicestershire. But. your Petitioners hope they may be allowed to refer to the reports of the Engineers employed by your Honourable House, in proof ofthe fact, that many parts of the line of road between Bangor and Chester are so extremely objectionable and im- perfect in their direction, as to cause much unne- cessary delay, and not unfrequently accidents. Your Petitioners beg further to state, that not- withstanding every exertion has been made, and is now making, to expedite the arrival at Holy- head of the Mail through Chester, and that within the last twelve months live hours have been gain- ed between London and Chester, yet if the arrival at Holyhead of the London Mail through Shrews- bury should, as proposed, be two hours earlier than at present, the time thus gained must be lost at Holyhead, in waiting for the arrival of the Chester Mail, or the Packet must sail before the arrival of this Mail, to the manifest injury of the first commercial interests of the two countries. Your Petitioners most respectfully but urgent- ly pray therefore, that such surveys and estimates may be ordered with all convenient speed, as may present to your Honourable House a clear view of the defects of this road, and the most effectual mode of remedying them, and of giving every practicable facility to the great commercial, com- munications of this district. j And your Petitioners shall ever pray, &c. MAIL CAR. THE Public are respectfully informed, that a MAIL CAR, three times a week, for tlie conveyance of Letters and Parcels, will com- mence running about the 5th of April next, from Carnarvon, through Beddgelert and Tremadoc, to Tan-y-bwlch, &c.in the county of Merioneth. Parcels sent by this conveyance, will be for- warded in the most expeditious manner The days of running and other particulars, will be mentioned in a future advertisement.

BUSINESS OF PARLIAMENT. j
BUSINESS OF PARLIAMENT. THE great question of iheconriilionofthe West Indian slaves came on Thursday night under dis- cussion in both Houses. The speeches of the Earl of Liverpool and Mr. Cunning were full, clear, and candid, and of the mildest andlJlöst conciliating temper. That the communications made in them partook of their satisfactory cha- racter, will be seen by the following.abstract of the wder in Council, by which a milder treatment of the Negro was enjoined to persons in autho- rity. 1. The use of the whip, so indecent and so shocking, is to be utterly abolished in regard to 'female slaves. 2. The whip is no longer borne by the driver in the field to be no longer employed as a sum- mary punishment of the male Negroes to be wholly laid aside as a stimulus to labour, and re- sorted to only as a chastisement for misbehaviour deliberately proved and recorded. 3. Ample provision is to be made for the reli- i gious instruction of the Negroes, by the appoint- p ment of two bishops, with regular clergymen un- der them. 4. Marriage is to be encouraged, families never to be separated, and the property of the slave is to be protected by positive law. 5. Banks are to be established, in which the slave may deposit his earnings; the money so placed to be sacred, in all cases, from the master's grasp. 6. The testimony of slaves, under certain li- mitations depending on personal character, is to be received in an ci vii cases, except when the "life of a white person is involved. 7. The slave who has acquired a certain sum 'of money is to have the power of purchasing his own manumission, or that of his wife or child; and thus the father may become, as it is fit he should, the instrument of liberty to his offspring. In the first instance the experiment is to be tried in the conquered colonies alone and it is hoped that the old English colonies, with the advantage of their Legislative Assemblies, will not fail to follow so excellent an example. Mr. Canning obtained leave to bring in a Bill making the slave trade piracy. Mr. Baring, on Thursday night, presented a Petition from the Silk Manufacturers of London, praying to be heard, by Counsel, against the proposed modification of the Silk Trade. After a debate of some length, the prayer of the Petition was granted. Lord Johlt Russel then brought forward his mo- tion respecting the occupation of Spain by France. He admitted that, in the present postu're of public affairs, this country ought not to court a war; but he contended that Ministers may, without in- justice, and without danger of invoking hostili- ties, interpose to forbid an invasion of South America, by Spain, so long as Spain remains un- der the dominion of France. Sir Robert Wilson supported the Noble Lord s proposition in an explicit and very temperate speech. He imputed the overthrow of the Spa- nish Constitution to the declaration of neutrality made by this country, which, he said, operated instantaneously to remove the fears of the Frellch Government, and to chill the hopes of the Spa- niards. He drew a favourable picture of the va- lour and devotion of the Spanish Constitutional- ists, and concluded his speech by a modest reci- tal (in his own vindication) of the services by 'which he had earned the honors which the Conti- nental Sovereigns had lately withdrawn from him. Mr. Littleton opposed the motion; he compli- mented the last speaker, upon a. reputation for gallantry, which no effort of resentment could soil; he justified the French occupation of Spain by. the example of our own occupation of France, and concluded with an amendment, expressive of approbation of the measures of Ministers. Mr. Gooch seconded the amendment. Mr. Canning commenced by replying to the ar- guments of Lord J. Russel and Sir R. W ilson, speaking with the utmost kindness of the latter. He maintained that the continuance of the French army in Spain was not desirable nor desired by the French Government, but that it was necessa- ry to save the people of Spain from mutual de- struction in conclusion, he animadverted, in a very happy vein of pleasantry, upon the romantic expeditions of Sir ll. Wilson and Lord Nuyent, styling the noble adventurer an enormous breach -of neutrality." The amendment was carried without a division. Mr. Ilaldimand on Friday presented a. Petition from some luadingSilk Manufacturers in London, praying that the Chancellor o* the Ei chequer s plan might be carried into effect without further alteration. Mr. Ellice also bore testimony to the appro- bation of the Chancellor of the Exchequer s present phm-expressed by his constituents of Coventry. A long miscellaneous conversation followed, in which the Chaaeellor oj the Exchequer observed upon the extravagant exaggerations that had been sent abroad with respect to, the sums to he paid back by the public for the duty on stock on hand. Sir T. Lethbridge intimated a wish that as the aefmission of foreign manufactured silk had been postponed two years for the satisfaction and se- curity of the silk manufacturers, a similar delay might be allowed to the woollen manufacturers. The Chancellor of the Exchequer declined giving a specific answer; but stated generally, that the measures which he designed to propose in respect of the woollen trade, were precisely those which the woollen manufacturers themselves had re- commended. The House then went into a Committee of Sup- ply on the Irish Estimates. Almost all the grants were opposed by Sir J. Newport or by Mr. Hume. The arguments of these Gentlemen, were however, as feeble and.as unfortunate as usual, for all the grants were carried.

HUMANITY OF THE AGE.— The Leeds Independent L threatens to publish the names of certain work- men at a manufacture there, if they do not desist from the hateful practice of stealing, skinning, roast'ng, and eating cats and 1 he JJoucaster Gazette gives an account of some young brutes who were treated on Ash-Wednesday, at Huck- nall, with a leg of a jackass roasted, and served up with plenty of gravy. SHOCKING OCCURRENCE.—on the evening of Thursday week, the town of Redruth was alarmed by a report that a girl named Emma George had hanged her infant brother, under the influence of insanity and the report was speedily ascertained to be too well founded. The unfortunate girl, whose mind appears to have been for some time under the influence of strong excitement, bail in- dulged a wish to be freed from the anxieties and snares which she conceived awaited her in her progress through life; and supposing that there was no way of obtaining the desired end so effect- tually as by committing murder, which would se- cure her execution and afford opportunity for pre- paration during her confinement, she cast her eyes about for the most suitable subject on which to execute her purpose. She could not think of ha- zarding the eternal welfare of another to secure her own, and she consequently abandoned the idea of taking the life of her mother, which had first suggested itself; she next thought of her brother, a child about seven years of age. and under the supposition that she should thereby secure the everlasting happiness of the child, to: w-boiti,.it ap- pears, she was fondly attached,, as well is her own she determined to make him the victim. On the evening in question she returned from working at a mine, and whilst she made tea for herself, her mother went to iueeting her brother remained in the house & had some tea, shortly after which she prepared a noose on each end of a sil k handkerchief; one she placed on the child's neck and, lilting him un she suspended him on ahook, and, on letting go her hold on him. said-" There go to heaven. Whilst engaged in this manner, she continued Silg- itig hvinms. Though a man and his son were in a r oni ov er-head, and a family in the opposite room, they did not hear any tiling calculated,to excite particular attention. After she had suspended the child, it wringing her hands, calling on G od, and ex- VV liat have I done A considerable time elapsed before she could he induced to say she had hanged her brother. The persons to whom she spoke ran into the room, and cut down the child, but life was extinct, every eflort made to produce resuscitation being unavailing. W hen she found the child was dead, she attempted to cut her throat with alarge knife,which was wrested fiom her. Un Friday an inquest was held on the body, before Mr. Pearce Rogers, one of the coron- ( rs of the county, who explained to a respectable jury the law respecting homicide, and the distinc- tion between murder and manslaugter when, after duiv considering the eviaence adduced, a verdict of Manslaughter was afterwards return-^ -'iv! the unfortunate girl was committed to Bodmin gaol, to take her trial at the Sherborne Mercury.

The following authentic information has been received from a iiival otlicer, sta- tioned on the coast of Chili and Peru — (,6 Callao, Nov. 1—" Bolivar has been calledhy the chiefs of the army (his own words), to the supreme authority, by the title of 6 Libertador.' lie is to have the chief military command in all the territories of Peru, as well as the civil power. He is greatly esteemed and admired by all.- Santa Cruz has requested an inquiry into his conduct, respecting h}s recent defeat. General Miller is appointed to the chief command of the Peruvian army. He is greatly esteemed for his valour and military talent. This appoiuttnent has met the gerieral nf)probationiajid-re.es- tablished much confidence. The Spa- niards have about 12,000 men in Upper Peru the patriots expect to bring into tliii field about 18,000. Those from Lima will not be ready to march in less thnn seven or right weeke* Betwpeu this and Pisco there are 5,000 Colombians, 1000 Chilians, and 1,800 Buenos Ayriens; 2,500 Chilians sailed from Valparaiso for Pisco on the 15th of October, and are, no doubt, arrived 'ere this. The Chilian army is to he commanded by General Pintos. Santa Cruz is yet at Moquigua, with [900 Peruvians. Kiva Aguera, the ex. President, has acknowledged Bol ivar's authority: he is at Truxillo, with 3,000. 10 Three thousand fire to come here from Colombia they are to embark at Panama and these are not iticluded it), tht- above. stated 18,000. Even Santa Cruz speaks highly of general Miller. Wehfarthat the commissioners have arrived at Buetioq Ayres; but Bolivar says that he shall continue the preparations for war, Iut hopes that matters may be settled without further bloodshed. The public trea. sury of the patriot^ is very destitute.—- Bolivar, or the Congress, has laid a tax on house property. Owners pay one fourth of rent—100,000 dollars a month raised this way-to bein force four months from the date of its operation. The Government is continually borrowing money of British merchants, which they rather expect to lose." It appears that a nevr valuation is to be made of houses, which, it believed, will raise the house Tax to the amount of 52 per cent. but the Chanccllorofthe ment Exchequer does not intend to augment the tax to that amount, but merely to es- tablish the principal of equal and impar- tial assessment. This being done, he intends to levy no more t amount, which is about one iid half; so that, if the new assessment, by taking in property, either not rated at all or inadequately rated, shall produce five hundred thousand more (whjéb it is ex- pected to do), so that the whole amount shall be two millions, he then proposes to reduce a fourth, which will just bring the tax down to its present standard. Letters from the City of Mexico to the 24th January have beert received.— It appears there had been, within the two or three days preceding that date, an ebullition of the popular feeling against the old Spaniards. One of the Generals in the Mexican service had sent a message to the Congress, to say, that unless the law, ordering the ex- pulsion of the old Spaniards, was im- mediately carried into effect, the troops would not continue their allegiance to the Government. After some little com- munication between them, an assurance was given, that the law would be enforc- ed, and a Proclamation was issued pe- remptorily calling on all Spaniards to make preparation for quitting the country. Order was restored, and every thitig quiet. It appears, that tvv3 individuals who had rendered themselves obnoxious, Miclielette and another, were included in this order. The above account was brought in letters from Mexico, by the Thetis frigate, in which Mr. Ward had returned. We understand that he brings the most fa- vourable accounts as to the objects of his mission.
