LONDON, Nov. 25. The following anecdote of the lata princess Charlotte was iotro luced by the Rev. .Mr. Jay, in his disontirs delivered at Argyle ChapeL ' Bath, on Weduetday. The preacher vouched - for its authenticity, having received it from an undoubted source. 'About a month since the princess was walking in the pleasure - grounds at Clare moot, when she accosted the gardener, and amoog many othr questions asked if ha could read " , madam," wu the reply (for she never suffered her domestics to address her hi any other manner.) " Have you a Bible "No madam."" Then." reinuinl Ihe , M I'll give you one." She immediately went to me noute, ana returned with a Bible, which she presented to the poor fellow, having written his name in it, with these words subjoined, M From Disiiicnu llurlotte." . On the morning ofthe 13th instant, about two o'clock, the elegant mansion of Dormont, in the pati - h of Dalton, and county of Dumfries, the ' resideuce of Ka, - tejfiel 1 Smiih, Esq, was diicov - ered to be on fire ; and before proper assistance ' could be procured the whole of that elegant building, together with the furniture of every description, was consumed. The loss is stated to be immense. Tha Cra originated in the store - room, bnt from what cause we have not been able to learn. LIVERPOOL, Nov. S Xtmoxr of (he prince xi Charlotte - Carlton Ilo - ise was tha place in which princess Char. lotto drew her first breath, between the hours of nine Ana ten in the morning ofthe 7 th of January, 17tf6, when there were present, the duke of Gloucester, the archbishop of Canterbury , , the lord high chancellor, the lord president of ni majesty'! council, the duke of Leeds, the lord rhamberlain, (earl Cholmoodelry,) and master of the horse, (earl Jersey.) to the prince of Wales, lord Thurlow, and the ladies of ber royal highness (princes of Wales') own bad - chamber. At a proper period the bishop of Exeter, a mau of eminent piety, profound learning and a - nimble manners and disposition, was appointed to the important office of her private tutor by the parental choice of his majesty, who, by the eu ternary law of England, as well by the feu - , dal, is guardian of all infants, and of course more particularly of his grand - daughter and the heiress presumptive of hii crown. On bein? taken from the pareutal superiutendance, the good and accomplished lady be Cliuord was selected as her governess and this venerable ladv. on I tha advance of her royal pupil hi maturity, was uperreueu oy ine uucnoss dowager ol Leedi - . January the 7th, 1815, when princess Char ' lotte completed her I9ih year, her birth day was observed for the first time at Windsor. Her royal aunts proceeded in the morning to Cran oourn Lioage, to compliment thoir niece upon the' return of the day ; and an entertainment was given at Frogmore, where the princess had tha leasure to receive the congratulations of the oobihtr and the queen. Music was called .in to conclude the festivities of the day, nor did the princes fail to experience new tokens of af - , lection in presents from her relatives. Not many davs after this festal scene, her majesty's birth - day was observed in a similar way. rriitcass Charlotte gave on this occasion full proof of ber skill and execution in music, bv . performing a fine concerto on the grand piano , forte, accompanied on the violoncello by general Taylor, and on the violin by general Upton nor royai uignness was passionately lona oi mil' tic's delightful art, and musical parties constl tu ' ted the c hief gratification of her life. Fashionables were still wondering why the princess Charlotte had not been presented at court, when May the 13th, 1815, she suddenly tnaue ner appearance at the queen's drawing, room. Since it was the only one that had oc curred for ten tedious months, it caused some bustle in the town Soon after ber introduction at court, her roy al highness went to the sea - tide for the benefit of her health. During her residence oa the coast the princess took occasion to display one of .Uioie energetic trails which have to distinguished herconduct. Just before her departure from Weymouth, her royal highness being at sea in t t . .i . .i tier yscni, uie Lviainan, ol 74 guns, sailing near, Drongnt to, ami nred a salute to the royal standard flying ; and soon after, captain Nixon, who nniniaudsd her, rowed on board the yacht, to :.ay uu respects to the princess, fehe receiv ad him on deck, and, after the usual ceremonies, said Capt. .Nixon, year's seems a very fine ship of war, I should like to go on board her." The bishop, her aged preceptor, standing by, asked whether she tlwught her illustrious father might not disapprove of her passing in an open "bout through a rough tea ? The immediate an - rwer to this was ' Queen Elisabeth took great delight in her navy, and was not afraid to go on boird a esaaof war in an open boat ; then, why sho'ild If ' Pray, captain Nixon, have the goodness to receive me in your barge, and let me be roweti on Doard the Leviathan : for I am not on. ly desirous but determined, to inspect her." Tha Bcce;ry preparations were made, and her royal holiness passed down into captain Nixou's Darge, followed by her two ladies in attendance, with the liop ; and, coming alongside the Leviathan, the yar ! were instantly manned, and chair of statu let don. The princes desired ii o ue noisieu, say ipg I prefer going op in thananner that a camau does ; you, capt. Nixon, will kindly follow me, taking care of my e'ot'iei ; and, shea I am on deck, the chair ttiav be let down for the other ladies and the bishop." No sooner mid than done ; as her royal highness amended with a fjciiitv that a - tonih?d the whole delighted crew. Therovalsuiie bein - Upon deck, the ship's officers were severally introduced. Her royal highness expressed great wrpric at the spare, and streegth ol Uie ship, and remarked Well oiichtsuch noi.le structure be called the woodtn walls of Old England ! She now told captain Nixon, that she thnuM not be at!fied with an introduction to Jiis Mite cab:!i, as she was very anxious to see ' U - r rojal highness' dre was com. osed . f mr.S'.iflrcnt laiia, with dratfries nf rUzaut " frmn wliiclt wss suspended wreatiisof TV '" ntv - , ntermnoa with silver lama leaves, and nt - Srd with ilver cord and bullion tassels, iu the Frrrl stvle.

The princes having presented a purse to capt. Nixon, desiring him to apply it for the crew, as a token of her respect to tneoa, descended down the shin's side as she rose, nnder a royal salute, and the mora gratifying cheers of the loyal and hearty crew of a British man - of - war. TWiinn and frankness seem equally to nave inSuenced the actions ofthe princess CharlotUof Wales : aad, therefore, what her ingenuousness would not oermit her to tsica, the has nnuormly had the intrepidity to avow. These qualities may account for her resistance te the union Ant proposed to her j which, however apparently fortunate, not meetine; the feelings of her heart, she refused to sanction with a reluctant band jjmoor her objections to that alliance, there was also one peculiarly strong, originating purely to her dislike of being obliged to reside in a foreign country. Those who are acquainted with the character of the late princess' contort, and with the mutual progress of their love, hardly required to be re minded of the auspicious torn of both. . Whoever knows any thin? of prince Leopold, knows, in re lation to him, nothing but what is honourable and estimable in haman life ; while the manner in which be conducted bis courtship, with regard to his illustrious bride, at toon as h discovered that he had interested her affections, is inch an instance of dignity of mind, of true nobility ol soul, as renders him worthy or all the commence that has been reposed in him, and all the distinction to which he has been elevated. Such was his sensibility to religious truth also, when he had received the sacrament the first time, during his residence at Brighton, that he addressed a letter to the princess Charlotte of Wales, in forming her of hit communicating, and imparting to ber the tentimtnls he then felt. Tbuisday the 2Jof May, 1816, the marriage of this illustrious pair was solemmzsd at Carlton Housa, where she originally drew breath about twenty vears before. Her union with the prince of Saxe Cobourg was an event every way auspi cious to their mutual happiness, ferhaps there never was a royal match formed in which political considerations had let influence on the parties themselves, and in which the fetliigs of the heart were more deeply engaged. , Hence, from the day on which their marriage was solemnized, they have shunned the glare of pomp and the fascinations of fashionable life, and embowered in the shade of Claremont, sought seclusion from the world, and tranquility and happiness in each other's society. The blessings which virtuous wedded love could impart, were to them the chief solace of life, and the great source of their mutual felicity. The prince of Cobourg has been made a iridower by the inscrutable decree ef the Great Disposer of all events, who alone holds the issues of life and death in hit band, and in whose eyes princes and peasants are regarded alike. I he princess was bred up in the knowledge of pure political principles, and from all that hat uanspired of her opinions and conduct, the sin cerely adopted the creed which she was taught The order of succession to the crown It now by her death disturbed, and from the age ofthe princes in order of succession, and the state of the illustrious family, apprehensions will occur to every loyal mind. It will' be the earnest prayer of the nation, that an early alliance of one ofthe unmarried princes may forthwith be let - tied. The succession to the throne of these coun tries has, from the distressing character of some portions ol our history, been long an object of the deepest interest to every person ; and, pro bably, not less on that account, than for her ve ry estimable qualities, did the princess Charlotte centre in herself the solicitude and regard of the whole empire. As the future sovereign of these realms, the people watched over her infancy, and marked the progress of her childhood with the fondest care. Her matured age was hailed with joy, and the approach and merits ofthe rival princes who sought her hand, were noted by very individual with an almost parental solici tude. Her marriage was, as a public festival, distinguished by a kind of rapturous applause, as incere as it was general, while ner untimely death alas ! the public sorrow it still burning fresh. CURIOUS CASE. POLICE COURT, EDINBURGH, August?. A lady, residing on the South Bridge, brought a complaint against a person possessing a back tenement and area in Whidcey - row, for having on his premises a cock, which annoyed ber with crowing the whole morning from five o'clock and most part of the day. She stated that she felt the nuisance to be so great, that she had offered the proprietor of the cock 5s. for it, in order that she might do summary execution upon it, but ne had mused to take less than 8s The defendant having been called opoD.ttt.ted, that the cock was the property of his son was a favourite cock, and that it was solely upon his own premises, and was not allowed to wander iu the street, and consequently it could not be look - td upon at a nuisance. One of the lieutenanti of the police stated. that he had visited the place, and found that the cock was strictly on the defendant's premises, auu ii any nuisance existed it arose more from a silversmith's shop adjoining, where the sound of the hammers was sufficient to drown the crow - iug of all the cocks in Edinburgh. The magistrate informed the lady that he could give her no redress. The same lady brought another complaint a - gaiust a cowfecler near the same place, for allowing bis cows to low from five in the morning until nine, to the great annoyance of the neigh bourhood. This she stated, the apprehended arose from their not being regularly fed and watered, and that the nuisance was most grie vous upon the Sunday mornings. The defendant stated that he had possessed the premises for twelve years, and that this was the first complaint ever brought against him, although the prosecutrix had resided in the same place for twelve years also ; that he could not prevent bis cows from lowing ; that he had a right to keep the cows upon his own premises. and that so far from not feeding and watering the rows, it was his interest to do to, otherwise their milk would fad : that to convioce the pro secutrix of her error, be had thai very morn - uig given thrm a double allowance ol meat and drink, and still there was no diminution of their lowing. I he prosecutrix contended that be should send hit cowt to grass during the summer months. The defender mauitamed that that wa his concern, and be was entitled to feed and keep his cows at be best liked. The magi'trate in this case also informed the prosecutrix that he could give her no redress. 1 hese last two cases afforded considerable a - ninsemeirt in court. JfEIV - rot.K ErjLbLYQ PuST.

I wat un willing to comply with these orders, but bei::g obliged, I got the boat out and went alongside the schooner ; I wat then ordered to the brig, which 1 supposed to be the Commodore. After examining our Mediterranean pais, I was told to return on board ; they then hoisted the red flag. They had three or four prize ships with them, Swedes or Portuguese. They did not hoard us, but were very impertinent." An article under the head of Rome. intheGer man Papers received last night, gives an account of as attempt made by a band of robbers toeiie and carry off Lucien Uonaparre, from hit seat near Frascati. They earned off his Secretary in mistake for bis master, and wounded a relation of the family who wat there on a visit. Lu cien and hit family have, in consequence, renio veil into nome. LONDON. Dec, 7. Thursday se'nnigbt, the schooner Mary Ann, in 13 days from t ayal, arrived in the Downs. The master reports, that iu the course ofthe voyage he fell in with the American brig Gossamer, of eight guns, from Leghorn, bound to Boston, having on board Lucien Bonaparte and line. J his may have been one of Jonathan's hoaxes ; but it is worthy of notice, that according to the last papers from the U. States, there was an expectation of Lacien't speedy arrival in that country. Tlw Glasgow and Andromache frigates, which have gone round to 1'ort'mouth, are destined, the former for the Mediterranean, to attead upon Gen. Vaitland, and the latter for the coast of Uruzil, to replace the Ampluon, which hat gone round Cupe Horn. Accounts from Copenhagen of the 15th alt. state the failure of two ol the first bouset in that city. One of them had been established since the year 1646. The failure of one is attributed to tome unlortunate West India speculations, and ot the other to the occurrences in Norway. The court of Wurlenibcrg went into mourning on the 18th ult. for a month, on account of the death of the Princess Charlotte. There are good grounds for believing that the Allied Powers have come to the resolution ol preventing, as much at possible, tuppliet of any kind being sent to the Spanish American patriots. The ships Dawson and Emerald tailed on Sa - tar.iv afternoon, from Portsmouth, with abrut ZiO commissioned and non commissioned offi cer to join Uie Spanish Patriots in South America. The ships go to St. Thomas'. A letterfroiu Inspruck, dated Nov. 2, says A new Bull of the Pope it expected to be shortly publihed, relative to the determination ol' the frontiers of the new diocese of the kingdom of Lorn hardy and Venice. The oerocia - tinot between the Courts of Vienna and Hsune are nearly terminated ; at least, it is certain Out the principal omts are regulated.

DaiUJl3j S USUllI UA1UIW K nw.aii - farther proroguing parliament to the 27th January, then to meet M for the despatch of divert urgent and unportaui anairt." The tame uateue contains a prohibiting hit majesty's subjects from serving in tha miliiarv forces, or thiol of war. of the Spa niards or Spanish American!. There is an ex - rnt'.nn in favor of those who have already en tere d the Spanish tsrvice wuu uie leave gov eminent ; but they are not to serve with the forces of his catholic majesty in cpanisn Ame rica. A letter from Paris states, that prince liar deoberg, the Prussian Embassador, has present ed an othctal note, complaining oi a passage w his majesty's speech at the opening of the ses sion, and the address ol the cnamoer oi ucpu tics in reply to it. This official has excited I strong sensation in Paris, from the emphatic manner in which the Prussian minister complains of the declaration put forth respecting the treaties, and his demand of an explanation. Freihanger, the assassin of Mr. Phillips, was capitally convicted before the prevotai court at .4 miens on the 21st ult. and next day underwent the sentence of the law. Previous to his execu tion he turned Roman Catholic. The trial of the murderer of Fualdex it now fixed for the 15th of this month. A considerable number of additional witnesses hare come forward to establish the charge. Russia continues, it it said, to urge the other powers to form a league for the total suppression of the piracies rf the Barbary itatea. From Gibraltar we have received letters of the 10th inst. which state that the Algerine plague squadron had made its appearance in the Bay, but was not permitted to anchor within reach of the guns of the fortress, and that a guard ship had been dispatched, to keep it at a proper dis - ance. The rock continues very healthy - abundant showers of rain having fallen rather earlier than usual, and been succeeded by course of fino weather. All apprehensions of fe ver had subsided. The Paris papers inform us that in consequence ofa letter from the French consul at Cadiz, an councing. that the plague wu on board the Al serine squadron, and the instructions received f rom government by the prefect of the Lower Seine, the latter hat prescribed measures of qua rantine in all the ports ol that department. By a letter from the French consul at Cadiz, it appears that the Algerine squadron has been making captures of vessels of different nations, Dutch. Swedish. Russian, and, it it added, one English ; while they professed to be looking after Prussian and Hamburgh vessels only. We understand that the Bey of Tripoli has consented to receive a man of science and litera ture at bit court, to reside there, and acquire the language and manners of the country; after which he will give him a military escort to pen etrate into the interior of Africa. In conse quence of this, Joseph Ritchie Esq. now the private secretary of sir Charles Stuart, it selected as a person highly qualified for this undertaking. He will be appointed consul at Tripoli ; and he will travel with the caravan to Tombuctoo. This, after all the unsuccessful expeditions that have taken place, promises to produce the information so much wanted. No person it better qualified for the important task than Mr. Ritchie. it has been reported that the Duke of York it to resign bit office of commander in chief of the army, in consequence of the change of his relative position in the succession to the the throne, occasioned by the death of Uie late lamented princess Charlotte of Wales. It is said that the British government nas sig nified its intention to give permission to any of the followers or Bonaparte at tt. Helena, lo quit that island, who may apply for leave so to do. LONDON, Dec. 8. A private letter from Dublin, r - l on Sa - tnaviij, mentions the following melancholy accident : One of the ti icks performed by the Indian jugglers, now exhibiting their art in that city, is the catching of a ball between the teeth, nretl from a pistol. At a recent exhibition, the pistol, according to custom, was handed to a young gentleman, one of the company, for the purpose of firing it. He did so, and shot the unfortunate juggler through the head. It is supposed that a pistol actually loaded with powder and ball was, by mistake, substituted for that prepared in the usual way. LIVERPOOL, Dec. 6. The two courts of France and Austria have presented a ote to some of the Swiss Cantons, recommending them to suppress certain periodical works, now iisued in Switzerland, of a revolutionary tendency. We need not observe, that a recommendation from two tuch powers as France and Austria to the bwiss government, is something like a conge a" tlire for the election of a bishop; which swiltdcscnoes as recommending a man to fall to the ground after he has lie en thrown out of a window. The French exiles. it appears, having been driven out of Holland and Belgium, have taken refuge in Switzerland : the only other place in Europe where they could place the sole of their foot. They have there resumed their attacks on the cause of tegitima ey, and the allied powers are again in pursuit of them. , MOSCOW.

Mr. Philipps was in excellent voice, and gave alibis songs with the highest effect. Uh Lveleen't Bower, noniu Adair, and the beautiful ballad of The Bewil - der'd Maid, were enthusiastically encored. A repetition of hit Duett with Mrs. Burke, " Together let ut range,' would have been insisted oa but from a feeling of the audience that the i infers would have been distressed by the repe tition. There must have been upwards of 1400 dollars in the house. FROMTOUR CORREgPONDE NT. Patriot and Mercantile Advertiser Office, ) Baltimore, Jan. 19 noon. S Central Mma Again.
