However, we breathiof became impeded the respiratory or - fans were evidently andar the influence of spasm, and continued in that state until she breathed hu last, at half part t o'clock, exactly 6 hours and a half after her delivery. In this afflicting state of the case, Dr. Baillie and Dr. 8ima who had been called into the room when the breathing first became affected, Baited their Judgment and their skill with that of air Richard Crofts, bat in vain, to avert the impending calamity. Art proved unavailing, although every thing which it could devise, and which experience could susrest, was attempted. - On the 7th Nor. the body was opened by sir Everard Home, assisted by sir David Dundas, ,Mr. Brande, and the apothecary of prince Leo - r Id's household: and, we believe the following a pretty accurate statement of thcappearances these reotlemen observed : The membranes of the brain presented their natural aspect. The vessels of the pia mater were less distended with blood than was to be expected. The ventricles of the brain contained very little fluid. The plexus choroides was of a pale color, and the substance of the brain had its natoral texture. The pericardium contained two ounces of red colored fluid. The heart itself and the lungs were in a natural state. The stomach contain, ed nearly three pints of liquid. The colon was distended with air. The abdominal viscera were ia a natural state The foregoing narrative throws very little light npoa the immediate cau?e of the death ol the princes. The fluid found in the pericardi um might have obstructed the due action of the heart ; but it if not easy to account for its presence there, nor to conceive bow so large a quantity could have been effused during the abort space of time that supervened to delivery, before the breathing became impeded. Imagination has been busy, and a phalanx of ca sual circumstances hare been arranged to account for the dissolution 1 some of which are an - generously and too unguardedly, not to say maliciously, calculated to attach blame to her attendants ; bat we mast deprecate such expositions, as nnjust to the Individuals concerned, and in no degree honorable 10 the profession. We have been Informed that the whole of the royal family are liable to spasms of a violent description t and to this hereditary predis ositioa, and Um lncreasd excitability of the amiable sufferer, owing to ta - t rdioos nature of the labor, are we left to ascribe an event, which has de - etreyed the flattering hopes of Um nation, and lopped off the fairest branch from the stem of its xaonmlucai locctuion.

Mr, Coleman While walking home last even ing, with all the caution which a very tender re gard for my neck may be supposed to have ex cited, I was astonished at the dexterity exhibited by one of our wtinutnt efdarhuu, in obeying the above injunction of the poet Notwithstand ing the glassy surface of the street, he skipped from side to side with all imaginable alacrity ; and the application of his ladder to the lamp post, and of bis moulh to the teick, was but ths work of a moment in fact, the exertions of the lamp - lighters were totally eclipsed by bis, and justice requires that such meritorious conduct should be duly noticed. The behavior of the Moon, however, on this occasion, was infamous (0 a degree instead of making her appearance, as in duty bound, (vide contractor's almanac), she continued wrapped up in clouds and dark nest; anu the consequences may be very injuri ous to the character of our city, if the affair is not placed in a proper light : I, therefore, sir, hall hold myself in readiness to state to any grand jury, that the "darkness viiille," for which our streets have so long been notorious, is not the result of inattention in lighting the lamps, but that it may be attributed solely to the scan daious behavior of ths Moon, in not shining after they are put out !

This circumstance may account for the present decrease in deaths. It is to be lamented, however, that this fatal complaint has again visited our city, and if the exertions now employed fail in checking its learfu progress, it is to be apprehended that the next ra mvirl will nratent a UlFlaBChoJ V Picture of deaths, which might have been avoided, but for the persevering obstinacy of many wno reject vaccination. The consumptive cases, as usual, occupy i MMiibnhU nun in the list of deaths, not how ever, in n greater proportion than was formerly presented ; the same causes continue to produce the same effects, in this widely extended com' nlaint. It is a matter of great consolation that our citv h km avennted from that dreadful com plaint Um fellow Fever , that whilst other cities tha rnntmant avnerienced its destructive visi tation, we, under the precautionary measures of a vigilant board of health, aiuea oy n superin tending providence, nave ercapcu m miuicn Testation.

GEORGE CUMING, City Inspector, From tiu AUxmndnt Aivtrtiitr, Jan. 21. One of those bills which are rarely known to furnish matter for long debate, gave, yesterday rise to a discussiou which lasted till past four o' clock. It was an appropriation bill for military purrees: and nrobablv would have experienced bttle opposition if it were not for an amendment of it proposed by Air. Lowndes, tne chairman ot Um committee of ways and means, who reported K, una as oe saiu, at me uenre v uiai vum nut - tee. The amendment went to strike ont a clause which provided a sum of thirty - five thousand dollars for ths payment of brevet oracers. Mr, Mercer opposed this proposition with much ani mation and warmth. lie deprecated it as a vi olation of ths fitith pledged by that boose to the army, and as such not strictly correct or honorable. In Um moment of argent distress, at the commencement of the war, covernmentbcld out this promise of brevet rank not only with its honors, but with its emoluments to induce eur citisens to enter into Ike army ; and now, the war being over, and there being utile or no oc casion for their services, they were to be cast off without their pay, and their claims repelled, and in that bouse baffled with metaphysical distinc tions. The act which passed in 1812, held out, as an incentive, brevet rank to officers in cases where they distinrnished themselves ; and par ticularly specified that they should nave the pay annexed to the rank when employed in posts or districts or departments separate from their own regiments. Mr. Mercer dwelt with great emphasis on the gallant and meritorious conduct of the army, and said that it was not so much for the reward as for the example he pushed the rights or the brevet officers, which were so manifest that he defied any ingenuity to give a construction of the act of 1812 that could defeat them. Till that law should be repealed the committee of finance were bound to provide for the payment of the sums it promised ; and bad no right whatever to propose to the bouse to cancel the debt in the manner now attempted. He was, he said, one of the last who would agree to a reduction of the army. He even thought the amy established for the peace was much too small : yet he would rather reduce tha army than repeal the law of 1812. Mr. Mercer was supported in his opposition to the amendaient by general Harrison, Mr. Ogle, Mr. Baldwin and general crayth, who were replied to by Mr. Clay, Mr. Calbraith, Mr. Serjeant, general Reedand Mr. Taylor. The observations of Mr. Clay are deserving of particular notice. He said, as nearly as we could collect it, to the el - fect that a spirit prevailed of making the army a paramount object of national reward and ag - grandisomsnt, and of a gnitituee without any reasonable limits, as if the obligations it had conferred were such as the country could, scarcely repay, and as if the country were made lor the army: but this extravagant spirit HE would ever oppose knowing that the army was made for the country. From what was constanUy heard, one would suppose that they who composed the army were dragged into it reluclanUy, and that the nation had contracted when their services was over to retain them on their pay list for life. But every one knew that, by their original contract tbev were to be no longer retained than should be found necessary for the prosecution of the war; at ths end of which it was waU understood that they were to return back again to civil life. On these terms they were called in and paid during the service. He expressed bis ardent hope that he should never see in this country daring peace such an army as would keep it nt all times prepared for going to war, being convinced, and he avowed it with regret, that it would end in the destruction of the liberties of the country. Mr. Clay repelled most successfully every insinuation that the military bad not received, to the full measure of their deserts, rreat as those deserts were, every reward, whether of gratitude, applause, the love of their fellow - ci - tixens, or pecuniary gratification, which they tould reasonably hope for. Poets, historians, legislatures, theatrical companies, corporate bodies, and civic assemblies, in every part of ths anion, all concurred in honoring and liberally re warding them. He denied that the grant of; brevet bad pay annexed to it by the law, unless where the officer acted in a separate post and yet what was the consequence of oven that indulgence.' Why, Um war department was incessantly importuned by brevet officers to place them at separate posts not because their services were wanted there; but that they might receive the pay annexed to that situation. To correct, and at one stroke core this grievance. was, he raid, the object of the motion. That if the public exigencies required the services of those officers at separate posts, they were, under the act of 18 12, entitled to pay, he would be the last to deny But to their right to be paid when they got there, solely by their own importunity, be for one, would never agree. It was a flagrant abase, and ooght to be corrected. FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT. City Gaxette Office, Charleston, Jan. 21 noon. ( From South - A merit A valued friend has furnished us with the subjoined interesting intelligence of the warlike operations in South - America, received from his correspondent at Kingston, (Jam.) under date of the 8th Dec. From a knowledge of both the parties, we have no he sitation in vouching for its authenticity. From the same source we have been possessed of a most eloquent and patriotic address from Doctor Joseph Cortes Afadariaga, canon of Chili, tie. fcc. to his compatriots of Costa Firme. This article is too voluminous for oar limits to - day, but we shall lay it before the public as soon as possible. Very important news from ths kingdom of New Granada, and Caithagena its provincial seaport. fc'amano, lately ntmsd vice roy, anJ retiding t Santa Fe da Bogota, the capital of tha kingdom, officially baa communicated to Montalvo, thaice - roy of the said kungaom, exercuuux ui rnu - tumi of said office, until the aforesaid Sama - no bis socctasor, may assume the command ; that : iamnalhla r him tonrar to sustain the kinr - dom, after having sent a division to the plains of Casanare, Which was completely acsiroyeu "j Um patriots t only Um commander ef the same and 17 soldiers escaping. A second one was immediately afterwards dispatched to said plains, and only its chief and two drummers could cs pane, from this still severe loss. Morillo writes that he is about to execute the officer who commanded a division, that shame fullv retreated from 300 Independents, when those of his own consisted of 5000 men. In Santa Fe a woman was about to be execu ted, in conseauence of there havin been inter cepted a detailed statement of tha Spanish troops which were in said puce, ana wuicn sne nau ior warded to tha Patriots in Casanare. Brigadier Cupini and a lieut col. had arrived at Carthasrena : the only remains of the defeat at Margarita, and said that they were on their route for Peru the former to take command as reneral. On the 6(h of October ult. was taken the province of PamDlona. hv the Republicans, and where the Snaniards where comoletelv defeated This news is confirmed by a sergeant that had arrived at Carthagena, and wounded in Uie said action. In Carthagena! there were collecting a don linn, for the nnri - hnie of nrovisious of every de scription, to be in readiness in case a siege should be established by the Patriots against said city. On the 17th of Nov. and almost every day since that period, three placards were put in different parts or uie city, demanding tne neaas m montalvo Torres, the Governor, and that of Cano, Judge Advocate of said plnce. These placards are supposed to have been stuck up by the sol diersand subalterns, amone whom there was a reneral discontent. Patrols were constantly era ployed in parading the streets, in order to take down tiiese placards. Recent neu$ foom the South Srat. By a cm - tieman lately arrived from Guayaquil and Panama, I am informed by him, in perton, that the army of Chili, in July last, disembarked at Africa in lat. 18, 25, s. to unite themselves to tne powerful armies of Buenos Ayres, wuich had already entered the kingdom of Peru and that the Royalist army in said province had capitulased to the Patriots and that in conse quence of this glorious triumph, all tiie armies were on their march for Lima. Casco, the former capital of that kingdom, bad already become independant, which excited great a larm in Lima, its modern capital, which it is generally believed here, must have fallen long since. The ports of Limi and Guayaquil, are strictly blockaded by the Patriots, who it is said, have upwards of eidity vessels of war i among which are frigates, brigs and' other smaller craft. Not a single vessel has arrived from Lima to Panama, since September, and it is positively believed that the immensely la crative commerce which has been carried on between this bland and the Pacific Ocean, has now drswn to a close, for the Independents armed vessels have even appeared in front of Panama on the 24th of October i and it is sup posed the Patriot flag will float in triumph from Uape Horn to the nortbenmost point in Vinezuela, within the space of six months.

By a communication to this Department, it appears, that Cushion Lapham, James Ferine, and Michael W earns, who claim to be citiiens of the Uui ted States, are confined in prison at Malaira, in Spain, upon a charjre of piracy. It is stated, that they formed part of the crew of the brig I nomas, capt.
