Her brother - in - law, Mr. B. who wattue only one of her friend, that dared to .peak in direct term, to thi. once haughty but uow m'uerable woman, upon the criminality of her conduct, gave her to understand that he had waited to mo a change in her behaviour toward. the doctor; that be hnd expected thttt the indirect warning, of her f fit - mlii would have bceu tufficicnt to have brought her back to the honourable path the had formerly purnued ; but he fouud that the treated her hutbaud with contempt, and her cluidren with not merely neglect, but cruelty.

His wife opposed such a measure most atrenuounly : the said that .uch a ttp wa. preci - - ritate. unuecessarv, ungenlleman - like, and in - hotpilable. On the following day the husband took her to TunbnJje - wells, and there ine cellared that die could uot live ; .he detested the place; and prevailed upon her husband, after residing there two day. to return to London. During the tim that thi. doctor, th'n assassin of Oociettic Happiness, wa. ircaiea to no?ji'my tlit mansion of Mr. F. he, as it were, held the Iurte of his friend, and had sums from him to a very considerable amount, which he used as a mean, to effect his purpose, in carrying off bis wife. The very day after the lady returned with her husba - id frcm Tonbridge - well. to Lon - don, she p.cked up all her valuable (during the absence of her husband from home; thai were portable, in two trunks and two parcel, and had tiiem eouv eyrd to the doctor, who wa. watchin; tor ber in the neighborhood of her hut bend's liuu - e with a hacknty coach : the) both got into ine coi - n, auu drove otf, abandoning a truly al - lirtioaHte hu - u:m.l and her two nua mteretliug cniLirrn ; leaving wealth and happine", for poverty, h:sery, and the precarious protection of hor seducer.

And this sneetino' cannot but exprei their .ineere regret, that in cotwequence of having yielded so repeaiexiiy u uie oiciini of this party, the Southern District has in a great degree lost it weight in the Legislature and Councils of the State and that the politi cal course pursued by those who have been se - tertMt t tline Hanventions. has tended to des troy that good understanding and cordiality of j reeling which ougnt to prevail dciwcch Republican of other parts of the Bute and those of the Southern District.

Lallemund and Rigaud are amongst them. They cautiously avoid offending our govern ment. Ihe views of these people are not un Jet - stood, but it is conjectured that they are going to some place bevoml the river lirand lucnwps i ainnii ill to possess ami nccupv a country to become an assylum for discontent ed Europeans. Ihe armed v essels our govern ment ordered to that place, had not ppeared the middle of last month. Before the arrival of these Frenchmen, the place was occupied by Lafite the younger, and his party who had brought in some prize's of great value, parti cularly the Spamdi ship Camprche, of 450 tons, with a cargo worth X360,OOO.

Nkw - 0hi.ea.js, April 1 Rumour has been for some time busy in thi. city, with the designs now on foot against the npanush provinces beyond the babine. It is currently reported that the French Exiles in the tinted Elates formed a plan some time since for taking possession of the province of 1 exas, witlbpcrhaps the adjoining country call ed Provinces Internes. A subscription was raited amongst the most wealthy, to defray the incidental expenses. Mr. Giraud is sai.l to have subscribed 50,000 dollars, and Joseph Bonaparte, Marshal Grouchy, &c. arc also be lieved to have contributed largely. Some have gone so far as to that the leaders notified the Spanish minister at Washington ot lueir intention to colonize the above pro vince, where they are willing to acknowledge tne supremacy or old Spain in case she allowed them to remain undisturbed. We should have treated sll this as idle ru mour had not the above letter from Natchito ches set the matter beyond all question. From the Philadelphia Gazelle, April 50. Bank or the Ubitkd Statks.

S Vmm mir attentive corresmndent at Gibral tar, we have received tne toiiowing no oi i intelligence, under date of February 28th.

There were no troops, and transports are ready to take the seamen back by way of the Bluck Sea. A gentleman who is here from Cadix. since the arrivals of the Russians, states a fact some what flattering to our national character s On their arrival in the bay of Cadiz, the Ad niral's ship saluted the town, and on the following dav. fwbich was Washington's birth - day) eve ry ship hred a tull ruunu. it was avowcu to have been fired in honor of that occasion, and was not answered by the Spaniards.

The writer in another letter observes I he King of Spain ha made Cadiz a port of deposit, similar to Marseilles, upon paying, it is said, 2 per cent.. I tlon t know yet when it is going into operation, and am ignorant of se veral important particulars that are necessary to enable me to lay the subject clearly before you. I have seen that part ot tne order proclaims Cadiz, to be one of the intended ports, but it is contingent upon a tariff pre scribed by a commercial tribunal, which we have not seen. LATE FROM FRANCE. By th arrival at New - London, last Sat urday, of the very fast tailing ship Comet, aptain Center, in th remarkable short pas sage of 19 days from Havre, we have received :i file of Paris papers to the 50 th of March, con - taining London dates to the 14lh of the same month. Although these dates are 12 day. from Loudon and 23 from Paris later than before re ceived, yet we do not discover, on a busty pern sal, that they contain any very important politi cal information. The weather on the coast oi Europe has been uncommonly tempestuous and disastrous to .hipping. The letter bag of the Comet and tome of her passenger, arrived here this morning in the steam boat from New - Haven. The Comet has a valuable cargo of dry goods, lie. consigned to T.

Ship Illinois, Funk, has arrived at Bordeaux, from this port. Ship Favorite, Hilliard, arrived at Havre, a - bout 19th March, from this port. The ship Canada, from this port has arrived at Havre.

French's farewell concert, the public will observe, is to take place thii evening, of which the particulars aipcar in the bills of the day. We were prevented by illnen from attending the last concert, nnd with much regret must add, that we cannot bo present this evening; but from the concurrent report of the best judges, who were present at the last occasion, as well as from what we witnessed ourselves at the former, we cannot bc.ilate to say, that her performances are of the first order. We did not speak critically of th first roncert, because, other papers, wh - jse superior taste and judgment wa are willing to acknowledge, were so ready to render Mrs. French full nnd ample justice, that they left nothing, or, but little, for us to say. Had we ventured to have given our opinion, although we probably should not have declared that she was superior in compass to a Catulini, or in, sweetness, pnwer aud expression, fo the reigning English favorite, Miss Stephens, (and for this simple i - eason, that we never had the good fortune to hear either ;) and still less should we have instituted invidious comparisons between her and those we have heard, and to whom we have never listened but with pleasure, (we allude to female singers only,) still we thould hav borne unequivocal and very tincoro testimony to Mrs. French', uncommon qualifications. In the lower half octave of her voice, she is not .0 full and firm in ber tones as the late Mrs. Hodgkinaou, hut her upper note, are silver, resembling both in clearness and swell the harmonica ; take her voice all together, from the lowest note to the lop of her compass, it is unrivalled, by any thing we hav hoard. Her shake, which is a distinguishing mark of a finished singer, is, at once, even, open and brilliant, and introduced just where it ought to be. Some of our sagacious critic, have said Mrs. French is deficient in science. As we dont exactly comprehend what is meant, we, therefore, cannot speak on that poiut ; w can only say, she certainly knows enough to be always in exact tune and time, and she is able to compose an accompaniment, oran air, or a va nation, with great taste, and when she has delicto sit down to her piano, and sing it with the moat captivating sweetness. We conclude by wishing her all the success she merits ; more the need not desire. An overflowing room, and warm applauses, this evening, will testify Uie place the hold, in Uie esteem of the public. We understand that Mrs. French, at the u: - gnt solicitation of a number i,f her friends' has consented to sing in addition to the songs mentioned in her advertisement in the morning papers, the celebrated Echo Sung. 0" Henry Chan, Esq acting Swedish, Con - sul General, is requested to rail at the Office ol the Evening Post, in the course of this afternoon.
