Tho arrival of major Moodie on Saturday with dispatches tor Lord Iiathurt,fi ora Sir Hudson 1 Lowe, al St. Tlelena, bu excited some specula - ' tion in the city, coincident a it i with the ac - ' count uf the landing of a sailor at that Island, . a already mentioned in this prer. The sailor hail been one of the crew of the Northumberland man of war, which carried Bonaparte from Kurone to St. Helena, and m that sitna tion had formed an acquaintance with Bonaparte servant. This sailor afterwards be came one of the crew of an East Indiamun which being at 6L Helena, the sailor, in the niTht, contrived to wun from the vessel, : clumber tip the rocks, visit and past some iwurs eauy anionir Bonaparte s domestics. 'I hi he did two keveral nights without being' ducovered or noticed but in cnnversation on board of the ship he boasted of Lis adroit - nets, and told confidentially ta his messmate whit he had done. Knowledge of the transaction transpired ; he Wat arrested, and examined and conducted home to England in confinement ; but it has not appeared that he had any sinister intention or more in view than an innocent frolic. Il i not believed Bonaparte knew of hit being among his servants. However, the occurrence is supposed to have demonstrated the postihility of Bonaparte's escape on board of any English vessel, the captain of which Might be inclined for a bribe or otherwise to convey him to Europe or America. Indeed, it,m reported several such occurrences have taken place at St Helen, as have ' induced Sir Hudson Lowe, to declare to the Government at home, that if vessels are allowed to come to that island as at present he can not answer for the security of his prisoner. It is reported in the city that Mjor Moodie is cofiie borne to roaxe representation ou tnis subject, and it it supposed another place of re - fieslimeiit will oe assigned Mr our but uioia - Bten.

Etigliih t!tctiontringMr. Wooler and Mr, Cobbctt, are rival candidates from Coventry, for a seat in the British parliament. At one of the meetings held for the purpose of recommending the foruiergentletnan to the suffrage of th electors, the spotter said, it might bo tome satis faction to the friends of Mr. Wooler to know, that out of 400 Coventry - nun, more than one hHlf were willing to go, evea barefooted, to vote for him t aud it would really teem, from what followed, that ho not misrepresented their seal ; for before the meeting dipened,the friends of Mr. WooJej" tore down the poll of their opponents, and a battle royal endued, iu which there were, of course, wary broken heaJj. At length some of the' most active of the Wooler parly were seised aud lodgsd iti the watch house ; but those who remained outride immediately rallied, unroofed the prison, and set the frieoJs of freedom oace more at liberty. What followed d the next day' polliug we are yet to learn. Sta Strptnl It teem that Uie Yariken have finally dstermioed to como.euce hostilities in ear nest against Ua Royal Snakahip, who probably acts iu tlie capacity of pirtre ttj - tnt, during the absence of Old King Jftytunt from onr waters. An eastern paper received this morning mentions that threa expedition are cruising for the sea - terpent. The adventurers are bold, hardy, and capable. The canoe, harpoon, houk, grapudl, ride, mufkftt, swivel and seine will be used, together with some other means of kotilily which bar been contrived to entrap him. Should the belligerent power come in contact, wo antici pate a warm engagemnnt, as, iu point ot prow ess, we conceive the hoetile force to be about equal. This we infer from the circumMauce, that Uie warliko opvraons of both hwe hitherto been confined to the destruction of uhalet over whom, official accounts inform u, both die Snakt and the L'ope - Cod mtn have alwajs been victorious. A London paper otervei that the post chni - set which run between New - Tork and IViladel - phia, a distance of uourooe hundred mile, per form tho Journey dadyin teo hours an expedi tion, we believe, unexampled in any part of the wmU" tit stated iu tb Liverpool Mercury of the 19th June, tliat the la'eilinoliilioo of parliamcut was announced cii'a rce by the prince regent, io th cme and on the behalf of bis majesty. Tbie Lircumslance caused no little astonishment among both Officers and citizens ; as it is the first occurrence of the kind that lias taken place since the rcin of tho SUwarh ; aud even tlieo it was considered only as an act of anger of the king, when the parliameut had offended liiai. On Motichy loorcin at 9 o'clock, th corner stooe of the " A'erewfA Prtibttrinn Chunk in the city of f 'lib or," was placed in Sheriff - street, with the usual solemiliii. cou.vcaicATio.v. Dr. E.

We gave yesterday, under the Boston head, some particular relative to the discovery of the robber of the Cumberland Bank.

Particular! efthr laic Rtbbery of Cumberland, Sank The extensive and daring robbery of the Cumberland Bank in Portland, which ha been published since our hist paper, we are now happy to state is in a fair way to be detected in all it eirctunstances. This nefarious transaction it will be recollected, took place on last Saturday night and w hat is very for tunate a gentleman or Portland, whose intention wa to bring a sum of money to Boston oo Monday, went a itli the cashier ot the Uann on Sunday to receive theatjiount. Atthutuneit was found Uie UanK hU been roooeo. some blacksmith were immediately appreliended 1 and examined ; or - e of whom discloed tome circum - rtances relating to a JJsuiel Manly which lead to bis arrest oo MonrUv.

The robbery was effected by false keys, which Manly bad contrived to get made - Delft wat on the watch and after tha aotta and money were taken, it waa thought proper immediately to bury them fur greater security, lkdf took the Directors into the country a few mile to the place where the Bank note bad been concealed, but tbey were no longer there. He then led them to the shore where hit proportion of (h specie wa buried which they found by dining. The conuuion upon wmcn ne was io receive ins re ward not being complied with and perhaps stung with remorse, mortihcM.on and disap pointment Kolf stole aside round a point of land and shot himself with a pistol. Maaly it wa supposed, between the first and second examination had taken the note from tbeir secret deposit and lie is no under Our ance, with his relation Del upon Uie charge of I urand larceny. Thi audden discovery, will restore oonfi dence to the Bank and to the community the Danx; lias recovered itt specie and itt ttolen note can never cet into circulation whilst Uie public, feel additional security in the fact. that an extensive robbery however well con trivedcannot from the nature of villian be so cenceafed, that iU perpetrators will not be found out or betray Themselves. Bince wri ting the above we have received the fulluw - ng: , . j'oiHcript. i ne Directors of Cumberland Bank, have the satisfaction to announce to the public, that all the monies, specie as well as bills ol every description, stolen from the uank. on the night of tiie 1st mL hat this day tmn recovered. .lOStPH SWIFT, Cashier.

Our at ton tion wa lately called to' Uie hardship imposed on this meritorious clas of cilizi - ns, by the late law of congress, and the requisitions made ncesary ly Uie secretary of war, to enliUe them to ireivc the promised bounty of tbeir country. The occasion was, a wi lier of the revolution, (upwards of 70 years old,) preMiled ot tome articles be had written on this tutject, for pohliratiuo. This was declined on account of ofr - nivr remaikt tbey contained, bot the cue they present i truly a hanl one. He bad terved several years as a soldier, daring th revolutionary war, endured all the privations and suffkriogt incident to the sereri - i ties of that service, received little or no comjen - stttioo ; lost a porti.10 of Uie little property be hod by the depreciation rf the psper curreocy of Uie day ; had been subjected to extreme toil liocc Uie war to gain th mean of suSitnce, ami had abandoned the hop of rewaid wha the law of the last tetnoa was made public LMlihUd with the nop of obtainia; a litUe 1 ... . - i - :.. t'T - t i.r. nnie.oelhuijlrom me gmierosiiy or jsiw, u. hiiidays, be had his paper autheoticatsd. and seat to lb secretary of war. Instead ot receiv - ipg the prMiised peosioo, the paper have been retornad fur some want of conformity to tome eondilibu not specified In thslaw, but prescribed by the secretary, and not known when the papers were made out. Thus, after incurring considerable expense (great for him) to secure to himself what tho haod of. tha government ss eared extended to reach him, the cup of expectancy was dished from his lip, beibrehe waj permitted to taste of it content. This case is not singular; ther are many aearly iimdar. Why is it io? Why tubject these poor men to trouble and expense in addition to all their former losses, services and sufferings? Why raise expectation and then disappoint them Why treat tbes valorous and i much abused men in a manner so tantalizing and unworthy i Why should Uie government add insincerity to their country' ingratitude I Why " palter with them io a double sense.1 Why "keep tb word of promise to the ear and break it to the hope.'" h it because, as the old soldier expressed, it.
