The yoi ng gentleman whose body was found washed asi ore from the Comet, with C. B. S. marked on his linen, aud surgical instruments in his pocket, turns out to be Mr. Charles Baillie Sutherland, youngest son of the late Captain G. S. Sutherland, of Uppar. in the county of Suther- land, and grandson of the late Colonel James Sutherland, He was a itiost I)ioinisirig gentpel young man, only in his ISlh year, and wa" on his way to attend his third course of medical study at Edinburgh, where he was apprenticed to an emi- nent surgeon. Captain S ut berland left II this death seven sons and four daughters, and this is the first casualty in that interesting group. A poor strolling player was once caught per- the part of a poacher, and being taken before the Magistrates assembled at the Quarter Sesions, for examination, one of them asked him what right Iitf had to kill a hare? when he re; plied in the following ludicrous parody on Bru- tus's speech to the Romans, in defence of the death of Ccesar—"Britons, Hungry-uien, and Epicure* hear me for my cause, aud be silent that you may hear; believe me for my honour and have respect for mv honour, that you mav believe. Censure me in your wisdom —and avvako your senses that you may the better ind, If there he any in this assembly any dear friend of this hare, to him I say, that a poacher's love for hare is no less than his. If, then, that friend demand why a poacher rose against a hare this is my answer,—not that I loved hare less' but that I loved eating more. Had you had rather this hare were living, and I had died quite starv- ing—or that this hare were dead.thttt I mijht live a jolly fellow ? As this hare was pretty I weep for him as he was plump I honour him and as he was nimble I rejoiced at it but, as he was eatable, I slew him. There is tears for his beauty joy for his condition; honour for his speed and death for his toothsomeness. Who is here so cruel would see me a starved man ?— If any, speak, for him have I offended. Who is here so silly that woul(1 not take a tit bit; If any, speak, for him have I offended. Who is li(Are so- sleek that does not love bis belly ? If any, speak, for him have I offt-nded.* -1 You have offeniled justice. Sirrah,' cried one of the Magistrates, out of all patience at this long and strange harangue, which began to invade the lime that had awakened his appetite. *Then.' cried the culprit, guessing at the hungry feelings of the Bench, 'since justice is disatisifed, it must t needs have something to devour—HEAVEN forbid I should k,-i) any Gentleman from his dinner- so, if you please,I'll wish your Worships a good day aud & gooi appetite.'
3LonKon» SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5. WE have received from Rio Janeiro a c(py of a Treaty between Portugal and the --eltpire of Brazils, concluded under the me- diation of Great Britain. This Treaty re- cognises, in the most unqualified manner the independence of the Brazilian lanpire, reserving, liowcver, the honorary title of lSfciperor to the present Sovereign of Portu- prfl. No stipulation is made to prevent the flIIion of the States upon the demise of his most, faithful Majesty; and none indeed eryukl he made without disinheriting the Emperor of a moiety of what, according to the legitimacy code, must be regarded as his birthright. Were the Government of the Brazils a simple Monarchy like that of Por- t ugàh the accession of Don Pedro to the Portuguese throne would in effect amount to a a rc-iiicorporatiou of the two nations; but as the Brazils have the advantage of a re- presentative government, they can never be brought back, by a legislative union with the old country, to their former condition of co- lonial dependence. It is probably In rcli- anccupon this security, that the jealousy na- tural to the present condition of the nations has been so easily quieted. Private lettftrs brought by the Brazil maii, which arrived ) esterday, furnish some interesting particulars, indicative of the pub- lie feelings upon the notification of this im- portant arrangement. The rejoicing was universal at Rio and the whole population net ively imitated the Kmpcror, in effacing, as far as possible, all the symbols of^hosti- lity to the mother country. His Majesty had directed the marked "Indepen- dence or Death." worn by all the soldiers, and by many of the people, to be laid aside by the former, assigning the grailCiiil icason, tb,gt the independence of the nation having been atchieved, the menacing motto was na longer proper. The reason prevailed uni- versally, and the badge was laidasidtf by all classes indiscriminately. General Feliz- berto Brandt was about to proceed to En- ropeas Ambassador to the Court of Lisbon. The completion of this arrangement is, in every view, a gratifying event in the history of our times. It is advantageous in its di- rect, practical, influence upon our trade; it is honourable to the character of our Go- vernment, by whose good offices it has been brought about; it is peculiarly valuable at this moment as an example to be followed by the Government of Spain, or rather by those powers whose behests the Government must obey; and t:) futllregeneratlOllS it holds out another proof of the futility of all at- tempts to perpetuate a system of colonial tutelage, and a sample of the most gracious mode of terminating the unnatural struggle to which such attempts will always give rise -a lesson that will be useful, until states- men shall have learned how toexchangc the relations of colonial connexion for those of independent friendship, without passing through the ordeal of a war.
VTc received the German papers this morning, from which we extract the follow- ing:— ;lA'rE, Sept. 19.—The expedition sent by the French Committee of Friends of the Grecks, which left Marseillest.on the 6th ar- Yived here to-day. The English Govern- ment bare has without any difficulty, grant- edit permission to remainhere for some days, to get fresh supplies. The Neapolitan Uu- neral, Hossrol, set out from this place yes- terday evening for Gastuni, whence he moans to go by land to Napoli di Ilomauia. Ac- cording to information, which he touk care to obtain before haud, the road is stated to be perfectly safe, and he has therefore taken his children with him, among whom is a boy eight years of age. Accounts from Napoli di Romania direct, say, that Ibrahim Pacha is near Tripolizza, in a concentrated posi- tion; to which private letters add, ill gene- ral terms, all goes well, and that they could not he more particular. The Egyptian fleet had not yet joined the Turkish; it was not known whether it had left Alexandria; however its arrival is daily expected. Nothingcertain is known of Lord Cochrane: it is reported he has required of theGrcek Government 100,000 pounds ster- ling to fit out two frigates, and that he ex- pected the answer before he would set out. 811Ch proposals could not be accepted by the (;reek Government. Other persons say 111 at Lord Cochranedoes not want money for all respecting the nature of which nobody is iti

"BOW-STREET. A HUSBAND J'ound Old.-One Mr. Peter Cook- sey was charged with having grievously maltreat- erl his wife, in return for the trouble she had taken ti) I fit,, I hill] out.' She had long suspected that It,- was no better than he should be amongst the ladies and because she succeeded in finding him out, he ttirtie(i to and gave her a black eye, as purple as a mulberry Now Peter Cookery was by no means a likely- looking subject either for dispensing black eyes, or doing any thing J'aiw-pas-ish in the. way of gallantry. On the contrary, he seemed to be re- markably cool, peacuabie.and subdued,-tlls ztgt,, ftrtv, or thereabouts; his garments, appa- rently much more elderly; his person much too small for his garments his voice, a mere mur- mur; his (lead, bald and shining, except a scanty valance of tliii brown hairs on the hinder part; his eyes, mild and unlustrous as a pair of bottle- goosnberries his cheeks, lank and inclining in- ward and the two pippin-shaped orifices which projected over his mouth, were well stored with brown rappee. But, notwithstanding all these exceedingly unpromising personal qualifications for any thing extraordinary, he had been J'ound out. His wife, a little dumpy pains-taking sort of woman, assured the Magistrate that Peter was not so pious as he seemed to be. lie had long been in the habit, she says, of absenting himself from home for days together, for a long time she could not think what in the world ne was after. But at length she and her neighbours agreed to watch him; and so they watched him, and watched him, up one street and down another, until at last they watched him into a house, some- where near Sloane-street, and there they pounc- ed upon him, just as he was sitting down to tea wilh a young damsel, young enough to be his daughter, and dirty enough withal, and Peter was so angry at finding himself foultd out, and getting his ears well boxed to boot, that he ga- thered ul) his tiine-wasted hand into a clenched fist, with which he struck his liege lady full on her left eye, and kicked her gossips out of doors. In reply to this charge he had little or nothing to say-or if lie find, he did not take the trouble of saying it: for these were the only-words he uttered Your Worship Cannot Imagine how I was provoked.' Then the Magistrate ordered that he should rlll,i t)itil but living iiiial)le to do so, tie was locked up; and, in the evening, his wife sent him a clean shirt, in order that he might take his imprisonment comfortably. (From the Glasgow Chronicle of Tuesday.) On Saturday the interment of Captain Suther- luclallll his wife took phice, wilh military ho- nours, in the bnrying-ground of the Episcopalian Chapel. The streets were crowded with specta- tors, and the windows fi-Ued with females, many of whom were in moilming, and seemed deeply affected. The remains of Captain Sutherland and his tady were carried shoulder-high, followed by friends in deep inoilrning, and attended on each side by his brother officers of the 33d Regi- ment. The appearance of the richly-mounted coffins, carried side by side, and the soldiers with thuir arms reversed, inarching at a slow and so- lemn step, with the mournful airs of the military baud, made the strongest impression oil the peo- pie, and many were observed to shed tears. The procession was closed by a number of cavalry and infantry officers. The bodies were taken into Church, when the funeral service was read in the most impressive maimer by the assistant of Mr. Routledge, after which the bodies were consigned to the earth, Three vollies were fired over the Captain's grave by a party of the 7Hllt, on which the crowd dispersed, and the soldiers returned to their barracks. Owing to the boisterous state of the weather, nothing has been done either in the way of drag- ging or sweeping. However, those skilled in the signs of the weather prognosticated a calm last night, in which case, as there is moon-light, an attempt would be made during the night to raise the COlllet. Every thing ready, when the weather will permit, it is expected they will be able to bring the wreck to the top of the water on the first attempt.
SHERIDAN. THE following anecdote of Sheridan, the au- thenticity of which is undoubted, is not, we be- lieve, generally known at any rate, it seems not to have been known to Mr. Moore. Soon after the marriage of Sheridan with Miss Hester Ogle, they went on n visit to her lather, the Dean of Winchester. During their stay at the Deanery, a party met there one evening, the or which was a kind of musical geiiius- the fife-major of a rugiment quartered in the I town. With this man's talents and performance on several instruments Miss Ogle, the elder sister of Mrs. Sheridan, was more than commonly de- lighted. and expressed her approbation and ap- plause with all that vivacity and energy which was natural to her character. Sheridan's atten- tion was soon attracted towards her—" Look at Susan," said tif-, she is in give me a pencil and a scrap of paper." In a moment he produced the following impromptu By heaven above, our Suke's in love. And nothing call her She's form'd a plan for that smart man, I mean that gy Fife-major. But h.rk aain that merry straiii Now I'll bet any wager; That overture has mide it siire-- — I wish you joy, Fife-major This was voted capital, and carried in high glee to the Dean, who. though as fully alive to the wit and talentof Sheridan as an; body, might have been as well pleased, perhaps, had his daughter selected a more prudent parlntir-" Give me the papera moment." said the Dean, when he had heard the lines. and immediately after addres- sed himself to the laughing circle, saying," Now hear my stitiiz-,t- Her mother cries, with weeping eyes, I wish she had been sager But siiic,- 'tis done, and you're my son, Goo bless you both, Fife-major." At the "alUt" time extending one hand towards the unconscious Fife-major, and the other towards Sheridan, so as to include them both in the same benediction. Sheridan did UOt much relish the imp lied association. J
THE MONUMENT AT WATERLOO. A fine Monument is now erecting at Waterloo by the Netherlands Government. This Monu- ment lias a very imposing cilect, eveii in its un- finished State. It is aw earthen mound or hill, of a conical form, end of immense size. being up- wards of iûiJ feetdiameter at the base, or-^K*) feet circumference. It is 200 feet high, and 100 feet in diameter at the top there is a double carriage road winding round it, in a spiral form, and supplying an easy means of ascent for car- riages to the top and hy this road the uiHteriaLs have been, and are 80nveyed to complete the work. In t he centre is a shaft of brickwork, which has been carried o-p from the bottom, and i is still going on. It is to be sixty feet higher than the top of the mound, making the whole height 260 feet. It is intended for a pedestal, to receive a Lion, 21 feet long and 1*2 feet higf, which is ready to be put up, when the work is finished. The mouud has been eighteen months in hand, and is to be completed in six more, and fro," what has been already done, little doubt re- mains that it will be so. For the last twelve months 2,000 men, 600 horses, and as many carts as could be kept at work, were employed on it, and the number has only been reduced as the ter- initiation of this great undertaking approaches. At present, as the works are going on, at the top it has a pleasing appearance from the great num- ber of horses, curts and people ascending and descending by the winding road.
DREADFUL ACCIDENT on the DOURO. OPOHTO, OCT. 10.—Yesterday afternoon, be- tween four and five o'clock, a fatal accideut oc- curred at Ciirvaliiilio, on the River Douro. There is at this place (Cai valinho) which is at the foot of the. hikit and steep mountain of Fontainhas. a most delightful stieain or fountain, and near it stone benches, where numbers of per- sons are used to sit down to refresh themselves before it is a pond in which the inhabitants wash their linen. Over this agreeable spot was a large rock projecting beyond the mountain, but as it was supposed sufficiently fixed, no fears were entertained that it could fall. Unhappily, however, when a great numher of persons of both sexes were on the spot, some seutedvsome in con- versation and walking, as well as some women washing linen, the rock fell, bringing with it a. large portion of the mountain, and covered with its enormous weight all the persons who virre there among them were four daughters of one family. Besides those buried under the rock, others were drowned in the Douro in their attempt to fly from this scene of horror. The noise of the trerueudous fall of the rock was heard on both banks of the river, and the cries of some of the unhappy victims drew toge- ther an Immense concourse of people, who were petrified with astonishment at the sight of so la- rmntable a catastrophe.—Some had their heads only free, some to the middle of the body, of others the legs aud arms were visible. Every effort was made to save those who were seen in this state, but in vain none were got out alive. By seven o'clock seven or eight bodies were got out, and as further efforts tcr save any of the vic- tims could be of no avail. the further examina- tion of the result of the disaster was deferred till to-day. It was a iniMl afflicting scene women inquir. ing for their husbands, men for their wives, pa- rents for their children, some of whom had to perforin the melancholy duty of conveying home the corpses of those who were dear to them. It was not an earthquake as some thought, but the natural gravity of the rock which caused the disaster. It is supposed that the rock and the part of the mountain wh ich has fallen, would make more than 1,000 waggon loads, each 50 uTrobas (16 cwt.)
