the fashionables at Cheltenham, in the ground of Colonel Riddell, and immediately opposite the oak that was planted by that illustrious personage. A band of music attended, and a most pious, impressive, and appropriate oration was read by Colonel Riddell. After the solemnity of the occasion, the company joined in hearty cheers. The day was fine, and the lawn was crowded with beauty and fashion.
Caution. Mr Thomas Garton, farmer of Luton Marsh, has lost six horses in consequence of their being inadvertently poisoned by a servant man, who fed them out of a measure in which a quantity of wheat had been steeped for sowing. The white arsenic had set and dried at the bottom of the measure, and was shaken out with the corn into the manger.
Provisions for the Highlands. Upon the representation of the Highland proprietors of land now in London, government are to grant a considerable supply of oats to such of them as choose to guarantee the price. The Duke of Atholl has greatly exerted himself in this praiseworthy object, and he has been zealously seconded by Lord Macdonald; Mr Grant, M. P. for Invernessshire; Colonel Macdonald of Lynedal, and others. Several of the proprietors of Highland estates have met the distresses of their tenants by lowering their rents, and supplying them with meal on credit, particularly the Duke of Gordon; Colonel Grant of Grant, M. P.; Mr Macpherson of Ballendalloch, M. P.; and Lord Reay, who pledged bis credit to government for 1800
APPOINTMENTS, PROMOTIONS, &c.
bolls of oatmeal for his tenants. The Mar quis of Stafford has sent 3400 bolls of meal, and 500 bolls of potatoes, for seed, to the tenantry on the Sutherland estate, at an expense of nearly £7000, besides purchasing 500 cattle from the smaller tenants.
Stage Coaches. The rate at which the coaches between Liverpool and Manchester are driven ought to be the subject of magisterial investigation. Last week, we are assured that one of them arrived from Manchester to Low Hill in two hours and a half, averaging about fourteen miles in the hour, or twice the speed of the mail.
29.-Roger O'Connor, Esq.-This gentleman, formerly of some figure, and greater notoriety in this country, has been apprehended at Palace Anne, near Bandon, and is now in custody in this city, on a charge of having been an accomplice in the robbery of the Galway mail-coach, in the year 1812, when it was attacked at Cappagh Hill, county of Kildare, and robbed of a considerable sum in bank post-bills, and a gold repeating watch, the property of Mr Pearse of Loughrea Bail was tendered to the Mayor for Mr O'Connor's appearance to answer the charge, but was refused, on the ground of its not being legally bailable. A magistrate of this county having guaranteed the appearance of Mr Arthur O'Connor, his son, who was also apprehended on the same charge, when called on, and his state of health not permitting his removal with safety, he was suffered to remain for the present at Fort Robert.-Cork Adver tiser.

COLONIAL PRODUCE.-Sugar.-The market has been rather heavy since our last, and asmall reduction in prices has taken place. The Refined market equally dull, notwithstanding the very limited supplies. Coffee.-In this article there has been much business done during the last two weeks, and prices of British Plantation and Foreign have advanced 2s. to 3s. per cwt. Good ordinary Jamaica, 75s. 6d. to 78s. ; fine ordinary, 79s. to 83s. ; middling, 80s. to 88s. Dutch Coffee has advanced proportionally, and with equal briskness. The Coffee of the last India Sale went off, in some instances, at a small advance, but there was no general improvement. The Stock of Coffee in this country is at present very small, compared with that of some preceding years, yet too great to lead us to expect any permanent improvement in prices. Cotton has been in very limited demand since our last, and prices declining. Pernambucco, 2s. Old; Maranham, 231d. ; Mina, 214d; Carriacou, 224d.; Sea Island, 2s. 24d. to 2s. 3d; Bengal, in the house, 93d. to 114d; Surat, 14 d. to 15 d. The total imports into London, Liverpool, and Glasgow, during the last month, were 46,178 bags, being 9591 bags less than during May 1816. Tobacco.-In consequence of the contract with the French Government, considerable parcels of ordinary have been sold about 8d. and under that rate,-to the extent of 4 to 500 hogsheads, but no alteration in prices can be stated, our market currency continuing too high for the export orders. Rum has rather improved in value. Rice. The demand continues extensive, and prices advance with great rapidity,-good new Carolina has been sold at 45s. to 48s.; the export demand chiefly for France.
EUROPEAN PRODUCE. Hemp, Flax, and Tallow, in very limited demand, without variation in prices. Irish Provisions continue in considerable request at improving prices. We learn, with pleasure, from the Manufacturing Counties, that trade is reviving considerably. The manufacturers are now giving 8s. 6d. for the manufacturing of Calicoes, which they could have got done last year at 5s. 6d.
The following duties have been paid to government by the twelve principal Fire Offices,
