VOROX £ FTH\ INQUESTS, An inquisition was last lIight taken before Thomas Higgs, the deputy Coroner for the City I and Liberty of Westminster, at the White Horse public-house, in the Strand, on the body of John fietjen, one of the keepers employed at the Ex- I eter/Change Menagerie, who was killed by, the I elephant confined tltere. I The Jury having been sw-ornproceeded to view the body, which was still lyingon the pr«fl|I|Ss> and presented a fnost appalling proof t»f tnwr* resistible strength of live tusks of this enormous anifnal. The ribs protecting the chest were com- pletely shattered, so that the breast and back-bone migbt with the slightest pressure he brought into contact, and a medical gentleman present said he had no donbt but that the heart and lungs were burst asunder, and the cavity ■of the thest filled with blood. The Jury afterwards viewed the ele- phant, the unconscious causa oftheaccidelit, lie was remaining in his usnal cell, and appeared to be perfectly quiet. A persou present, who had not seen hint for the last six months, offered him a carrot, which he took and quietly ate. He is a most majestic animal. On the return of the jury the following witnesses were examined. Mr. William Tyler, of Aldgate, High-street, stated, that early that morning he was vicw- lug the beasts in tbe large room in Exuter- change. The deceased came into the room and began "to fondle the elephant, and cnlled to "witness to obstrvu the extreme docility and playfulness of the iiiiiiiial, who kept touch- ing the deceased's foot, which he held out to him in a most gentle manner. Immediately after the animal had his breakfast brought to him, which haviiv ate, the deceased and another man entered the den for'the purpose of cleaning it out. Wit- ness went to another part of the room, from whence he heard Mr. Cross, the proprietor of the me- nagerie, call out, Don't go near Inm John, or perhaps you may have your sore foot trod on. Shortly after witness heard the sound of a blow, S yr L o the den found the deceased ly- J™* »»J h!'» ST*™: and appeared to be quite dead g man arrived within five minutes, and pronounced him to be dead. »'»es not think the animal d^d .t designedly, as it might, if it pleased, tim e after- wards trampled upon him, or have wounded wit- ness when he dragged him out <;f 'e | Carter, the other keeper, stated, that on thed ceased entering the den, the anima played1 w. is him forabout three minutes. Witness brough ihe soear, which one of the two keepers employed in cleaning the den 11 silaily field for the purpose of kteoiiijr him in awe. The dt-ceasect saiti, "Never mind the spear, the animal knows me well enough," and at the same time took it out of witness's and threw it upon the floor (if the den. The animal placed his foot upon it, *nd kept rolling it about for some time, and afterw ards took it up in his trunk, and kept twirling it about without any attempt at mischief. The deceased who had a broom in his hand, struck the animal with it. and called to him to "Turn round.—The animal immediately obeyed, and in sharply turn- ing the corner of his den, brought his tusk into contact with the deceased, who immediately fell. The animal instantly stood still, and commenced trembling, as if conscious of the mischief he had done. Witness is perfectly satisfied that the mis-I chief was the resultof pure accident. rheaiiiiiial was particularly attached to the deceased. Wit- ness immediately afterwards proceeded to clean out the den, and during the time he was thus em- ployed, the elephant remained perfectly quiet.- Mr. Cross was always particular in insisting that iwo keepers should be present at the cleaning of his den, for fear of an accident. The spear was about 13 feet long, and so docile was the animo I that it only required that the spear should be held over him to make him do any thing. Mr. Hurst, surgeon of the Strand, said that he was called in on account of arf "accident, and found the deeased to be quite dead. The ribs and breastbone were completely beat in. The Jury expressed themselves satisfied that the melancholy occurrence was purely accidental and therefore affixed a nominal dtodaud oils, upon Ihe elephant. Tuesday 'ahinquest was held at the sign of the Malbvirough Head pubiic-hottse. in G- reeff ,-walk, Blackfriars-road, beforeR.'Carter, Esq., touch-, ing the death of Susannah Collett, a fine young womall,2i years of age. the daughter Of respect- able parents. residing in John-street, in the parish of Cfirist-Church, Black friars, wh° destroyed herself on Sunday last by taking an ounce of ox- alic acid. The Jury, Upon being sworn, pro- ceeded to view the body of the deceased, which was Iyillg at the parent's house. the countenance of the unfortunate girl, notwithstanding the ex- cruciating agony in which she expired, was pla- cid and serene as when in life. The gentlemen composing the Jury exhibited AtronT feelings of emotion during the performance of this painful part of their duty. On their return to the room, the following evidence was aiven explanatory of the circumstances which led to the unhappy girl's premature (iecease. Mrs. Ann Wilkinson, residing at No. 51, John- street. deposed, that on Sunday last, between four & five o'clock in the afternoon Mrs. Collett, the mother of the deceased, sent. for, her request- ing that she would immediately come down to her, for she was afraid her daughter Susan had taken poison, and that she was dying. Witness hastened to life and on enterinsr a room up stairs., she. saw the deceaced lying- in bed, ap- parently in great agony, and writhing with pain, The dofctor cariie soon afterwards, and adminis- tered medicines to alleviate her sufferings, an of which she took freely, without the slightest dis- f-, i'm position to reject any thing that was calculated to assuage her burning tortures. Soon after hav- ing taken a strong emetic, which had the effect of ejecting the contents 'of her stomach, the de- ceased fell into a slumber, from which, however, she awoke in, if possible, still greater anguish and pain, which continued with increased severity up to the last moments of her existence, which took place the 'same uig-ht about II o'clock. The Coroner bere asked the witness the length of time she had known tne deceased, and whether she had any particulars to relate to 'the jury re- specting her state of mind recently. MrS. Wilkinson, in reply, said that she had Known the deceased between five and six years, part of which time the latter was sho.pwoman at a pastry-cook's in Tottenham-court-road. For the )stt\velv'elnont'ln. she observed a; visible at. teration in the deceased's manner, who. from be- ing a girl of a lively disposition, became Ibw and I)o.. desponding, this change in her mind witness said she (VonseSentionsly believed was produced in consequence Of a fatal catastrophe that occur- red to a young- man to whom she was ardently at. tached, and between whom a reciprocal regard subsisted. Mrs. Wilk-lilson then proceeded to state that about twelve months sinceayounir mah, whose Christain name she Only kiiew to be tha| of Henry, paid his addresses to the deceased, ana they were to have been married at Christ-church el-L on a particular dav however* a day of two pre- vious to the performance of the intended cere- mony, her swe'etheart went out on an excursion of pleasure in a boat down the river, with some of his companions. and while in the act of passing under London-bridge, when the flood tide was running down, the boat was swamped, and all hands thrown into the water. The young man Henry was drowned, and from the (lay the news of his death was imparted to the unfortunate girl, who manifested the most dreadful anguish on that occasion, she had never, up to the time of her death, recovered the shock that so awfnl an event had made upon her mind. Witness, when sitting with the deceased, has heard her frequent- ly exclaim upon hearing titelle:-t-li-I)eli at Christ- church tollitit, "Oh, Airs. that this bell was tolling for ine. that I mig-ht meet mv Henry in that place where his soul is now at rest." Mrs. Wilkinson concluded her evidence by describ- I ing the -agonies of the deceased ia her last ou)- ments, the cost of whose stomach was comple- tely destroyed and ejected when the emetic was administered. Mr. Jamieson. the turgeon, who was called in, to attend the deceased, deposed that on the af- ternoon in question, he found her labouring under the effects of a strong poison. and upon looking on the .Ilie bed on which she was lying discovered several holes burnt through them. which were caused by drops of oxalic acid fat- ling upon them. She appeared to be suffering under the most indescrihle tortures, and when he asked her whether she had taken oxalic acid and what quantity, she admitted that she had to the extent of tilt ounce. On farther questioning her as to where she was supplied with the poison, she declined answering. He immediately admi- nistered strong emetics, which had the effect of ejecting the contents of the stomach, which upon examining, he found to contain the eoat or lining of that necessary oraran of life. He was then ejecting the contents of the stomach, which upon ejecting the contents of the stomach, which upon examining, he found to contain the eoat or lining of that necessary oraran of life. He was then aware that it was a hopeless case, and that it was out of the power ofhuman ingenuity to save her life, the poison having completed the work of death before the deceased's family were aware of what she had takeli. tie, however, continued to administer those medicines which were likely to assist in deadening the tortures which a poison of this description was calculated to produce on the human stomach. until the time of her death. Mr. Jamieson added, that he opened the body after death, and discovered that tne whole lining of ille stomach had been destroyed. It appeared that the unfortunate girl, after having taken the poison, rinsed out the cup and titrewit a way, in order that the family should not discover the secret* The Jury returned a verdict, that u The ile- ceased destroyed herself by taking oxalic acid whilst labouring under a fit of temporary in- sanity."
MOZART. EXTnACT OF AN lUTHEKTO UNPUBLISHED LETTER OF MOZ.VKT. (From the Ifarmonhon of Nnvember.1 "Von say you should like to know my way of composing, und what method t follow in writ- in works of some extent. 1 can really sav no more upon this subject than the following; for I myself know no more about, it, and cannot ac- count for it. When I am. as it were, completely myself, entirely alone, and of Itoorl cheer-sav travelling in a carriage, or walking after a good meal, or during the night when I eannot steeli- it is on such occasions that my ideas flow best and most abundantly. Whence and how they come I know not, nor can I force them. Those ideas that please me I retain memory, and am ac- customed. as I have been told, to hum them to myself- If I continue in this way, it soon occurs to me how I may turn this or that morsel to ac- count, so as to make a good dish of it, that is to say, agreeably to the rules of counter-point, to the peculiarities of the various instruments.&c.— All this fires my oul: and provided tarn not disturbed, my subject enlarges itself, becomes methodised and defined, and the whole, though it be long, stands almost finished & complete in my mind, so that I can survey it, like a tine picture or a beautiful statue, at a glance. Nor do I hear in my imagination the parts successively, but I hear them, as it were. all at once (gicielt ittles ziisawneiij. What a delight this is I cannot tell! All this in venting lively dream, btill the actual hearing of the lout ensemble is, after all, the best.

For this reason, the comfnitting to paper Is done quiddy enough, for every thing is. its [ said befoie, Al- ready finished and it rarely differs on paper from what it was in iry imagination. At this occupation I 'ian therefore suffer myself to be dis- turbed for whatever may be going on around me, still I write, and even talk, but only of fowls and geese, or of Grelel and Barbel, or some such matters. nut why my style which makes them Mozartish, and different from the works of other composers, is probably owing to the same cause which renders my nose so-or-so large, so aquiline, or short, makes it Mozart's and diffe- rent from those of other people. For I do really not study or aim at any originality I should, in fact, not he able to describe in what mine Consists though I think it quite natural that persons who havereallyan individual appenranceoflheir own, are also differently organized from others, both externally, and ititernally.

EAST INDIES. ErtrtffSt from a letter of an officer of the Ma- dras Artillery, dated Camp, Arracan, April 15 :— "On the 2.5th March, we encamped within two miles'bf a very extensive range ofhill's, through whteh we were obliged to pass, on our road to this tity, (fourteen flhiles distant.) We knew lhat some of our friends, the Burmese, had col- lected therefor the purpose of defending the dit- ferent pissed; btt were totally ignorant of their numbers. On the morning of the 26th, at two o'clock we were formed into four attacking co- lumns, each having four guns attached. At three, we moved off for our respective positions, and at day-light, were drawn up under the hills; not knowing exactly where the passes were.— Every thing was quite silent for about ten mi- nutes, when a tremendous discharge of musketry issued from the hills in every direction. The ar- tillery was now ordered to open, and the light in- fantry advanced up the hill*, and in less than twenty minutes they were dtirs. In the mean time a practicabie pass was found, the cavalry charged through it, and cut up a great number of the enemy in their flight thus ended the affair of the 26th, with a loss on our side of fourteen wounded, and three or four horses killed. Be- fore daylight, on the 27th, orders.were issued to get ready for advancing immediately and at day- light the whole force was drawn up in close co- lumn of companies, with the artillery on the re-. verse flank, (I had the honour that morning of coininilnding the advance brigade of fors;) and as the enemy had entrenched them- selves on the opposite side of a small river, it was intended, that my two guns should occupy a small hill in front to enfilade their works; but on approaching, it was found iinl)rReticable. The enemy by this time had opened a fire on us, and six of our gnns were immediately opened on their trenehes the remainder of the guns, and a roluinn of infantry, were ordered to attack a co- lumn of the enemy who were advancing on our right, but they did not relish our shrapnells, and prudently retired towards their trenches. A heavy cannonade was now opened on them, and continued for nearly two lioilrs during which time measures were taken to find a part of the river that was formable, which being done, and the enemy's fire considerably slackened, the ca- valry and infantry wereorderrd lo charge, which they did in gallant style, and we had soon tho gratification to see them driven from the position they considered impregnable thus ended the work of the 27 th. On the 28th, we halted, for you may well sup- pose we wanted a little rest. On the^Oih, we advanced on the capital, (distant four Our advance consisted of three regiments of in- fantry, four guns, and some cavalry they got under the enemy's works much sooner than they expected (the morning being foggy): however, a heavy fire soon convinced them where they Were, and it was thought prudent to retito a little, till the fog cleared away. which it had by S o clock by this time the main army had-joined the ad- vance. We could then clearly see the enemy's position, it was a tremendous range of hills, each of them fortified, and mounted with artillery. Through these formidable passes, one only led to the capital. There being a small hill near the entrance to the pass. General M liean, who com- the advance, determined on trying it) car. ry it by storm. Accordingly (underthe fire of his four gnns) he despatched the light companies of the third regiment supported by sis companies of ours, the Madras regiment (under n most galUut fellow who was soon shot dead), to the itttacL, Thev were received by the enemy with trenieti- dous volleys, and the poor fellows tell, in all di- rections, yet did they advance; and many of them had nearly succeeded in gaming the top of the hill; but'as soon, rs they did, a spear was in.. stantly darted at them; and it being so steep, they were precipitated to the bottom. The poor i fellows conHiriied in this "'Wantter trying to g-aiun the top'uiitil every officer Was wounded, ritul iUO'j men were lying killed or wounded before the po-;< sitiou. -General Morrison now 'rode up 'to the <pass, and'seeing what had taken place, instantly': ordered'the remainder of the party to get Hinder ■'Cover ahd protect themselves.

As soon as our guns opened, their fire considerably slackened, or we never could have stood it. We continued firing for about an hour, but finding it heaily useless, en- trenched "as they were, we retired— sb much for the'20th. the 80th wfc't>itched our camp til- most within range oftheirCrtmefy, so that they amused themselves all the day by trying to reach us.

The intention nt first was to storm again under ofrr fire, but as that could not have been done without further hftvOc, an attack was determined upon. At eight o'clock-, a very able officer, with I;MO picked men, left the camp on this important duty. Not a mall was to lllw" his musket loaded, all was to be done with the bayonet. The orders were to take hill to the right of their position, and there to re- main till day-light."

They made several attempts during the night to regain their position, but all in vain. At day-light twosix- |)ounders opened oil the next hill, on which the enemy had also a six-pounder, but it was soon silenced. At eight o'clock the bugles sounded atfd the sight was really a grand one, to see our brave fellows driving them at the point of the bay onet from one height to the other and the bat- tery blazing away on the fugitives. In less than an hour Arracan was ours, and our troops rushing ittto it "from all directions."
MARRIAGEqjïhe JUALlQUIS if…
MARRIAGEqjïhe JUALlQUIS if WELLESLEY Dublin, Oct. 29. It was stated to you in a recent communication, that the Lord Lieutenant would on this (lay lead to the altar the rich and accomplished Mrs. Pat- terson. The information w-,is et)i-rect- lite mar- riage of his Excellency was solemnized this vnjng, about five o'clock, at the Vice-ltegal Lodge, in a style of becoming splendour. It was stated, for some reason or other, in some of the Dublin Morning Papers, that in consequence of the sudden illness of Mrs. Patterson, the marriage ceremony was post-poned, the public were not therefore prepared for the event. Mrlt, Patler- son, for some time past, had taken up her resi dence at Ry land's Hotel, where she was attended by her sister. Between the hours of two and three o'clock this afternoon, two state carriages belonging to the Marquis Wellesiey drove up to the Hotel. Mr. Johnson, his Excellency's Pri- vate Secretary, rode in one of them. He imme- diately entered the hotel, and in a short time handed Mrs. Patterson and her sister into the foreriiost carriage. Both the ladies were dressed in a superb and costly style. The appearance of the carriages with the state livery in a. very few minutes attracted a considerable crowd round the dobrs of the hotel. All the persons who com- posed it seemed extremely anxious to catch a glimpse of the accomplished lady who was so soon to be exalted to a state of such dignity and splendour,When she appeared there was an expressive though subdued murmur Of applause- Mrs. Patterson gracefully returned the salutation. The carriages rapidly drove off to the Phoenik Park-, 't'he marriage ceremony, accbrdtng to the rites Of the Established Church, was performed by his Orace the t«Oru Primate. Triere wer» present the Primate, the bishop of Raphoe, the Lord Chief Justice, Mr. and Miss Plunkett, Mr. Secretary Goulburrt and his LAdy, the Commander of the FordeS, Colbnel 'falhot and Lady, Mr Blake and Ladv. and several others. The Ca- tholic Arthbishop Of Dublin was not present at the Arst. marriAge, but arrived in one of his Jx- cellency's Carriages in Sortie time after, attended by one Of hU eler&yftieh, Ihe Rev. Mr. RhsselU when the marriajH1, according to Ihe rites bf the Roman Catholic Church, was solemnly perform- ed. For seVerftl days dhtfng the week; Mrs. Patterson (now the Marchioness of Wellesley) has been clnsetted with this Call)OlScl5ciiles!nstic. Marriage in the Rottian Catholic Churth Is a sa- crament, and the party iti)[Ilt-tull it without having previously gone thrntlh lhtt most Solemn ceremonies ami riles of the Oatholit; Church. Ru- peated confessions and leet-tviii^ ttit- faldrarnutit of the Loan's Supper, are held to be essential, sm that the party may -enter into the holy mate pure in conscience, and reconciled with the Church. This explains thejeason of the frequent visits of the Archhiahop. In the evening the belli, in the principal churches of this city set up a joyous peal, which continued for a considerable time.
THE FANCY. Wednesday was announced as a day that would be interesting to those who are amateurs, or who are in any degree connected with the movements of the degraded Ring. A benefit for Ward, who it is known confes- sed playing booty, but who since has expressed his contrition and won some battles, took place at the Tennis Court, Great Windmill-street, to re- late the particulars of which would be a waste of space; it was similar to those which have so often been described, and was crowded with per- Sonages from the Peer to the Pickpocket. Ward challenged the world for five hundred pounds; but the real attraction was, that either at the arena, or at some of the sporting-houses after- wards". a development of all Young Gas" had left untold of the recent attempt at a cross would take place; but this did not prove to be the case, unusual silence in those who are generally com- municative prevailed, and at the conclusion of the sparring, parties who entered together retired in different directions and, it is stated, compro- mises and other arrangements will be the order of the day. In ihft venin the attendances at the places of pugilistic resort were crowded, but not with professors and the party there was, however, a muster of the low er order of the Fan- cy with the addition of a few stars in the vici- nity of Clifl°n''s 'nn> *° patronise the efforts of Mr Fogo, who, since the death of iNIr. Gregson, has been the Poet Latireat of the Ring. \nother meeting occurred of a more respectable dfscriolion—if'he term respectable can be ap- nlled to patrons or practitioners of pugilism, near C, fTnies's-street, where it is said a slight con- ference only took place. The conduct of a gen- «lemail who has lately avoided the Ring, as con- nected with pugilism, was commended. A list of (-.(..fighters who had never lost a battle Was hmded about, and the majority of those present, on retiring, declared their decided intention of never affaln risking a guinea on a fight; late dis- n-racefn? transactions having unmasked and a mi- hllated the practice of pugilism beyond the chance of revival. Indeed the thumping fancy appears to be in as bad a plight nearly as the scheme fancy at the Royal aud Stock Exchange. <:t--
